How to Know What Your Husband Secretly Wants for Christmas

List: Posted: 12/19/11

Are you tired of seeing the look of disappointment on your husband’s face when he opens his gifts on Christmas morning? The solution is to get him what he really wants this year.

 

In order to know what your husband secretly wants for Christmas this year, think hard about what makes your man truly happy. If your husband is happy on the golf course, then maybe a golf weekend is the ticket. Or maybe he’s a sports guy and needs some time alone at the field with his favorite team.

 

Whatever his passion is, Christmas is a time for giving so, stop giving him the things he needs to finish his household 'to do' list. A Christmas stocking filled with gift cards for Home Depot and a bag full of small bathroom appliances is not as subtle as you think. This Christmas stop thinking 'household repair' and start thinking about what your man truly loves and enjoys. 

 

Don’t give him things he can’t or won’t use. Be honest, that fancy chromed bottle opener shaped like a shark with the little flashing lights on the top will probably sit in the drawer for two years until you get sick of looking at it and give it to your local salvation army store.

 

Remember when you were little and Christmas was a magical time of year because you knew that whatever you really wanted could appear under the tree that morning? Recapture that feeling for your husband with the perfect gift; which is not a Beige sweater from Gap by the way. Your husband is who he is, so take Christmas day to celebrate that and show him you love him anyway.

 

One great way to know what your husband secretly wants for Christmas is simply to ask him! Men don't place as much value as women in secrecy - they'd rather just tell you what they want and get it. Ask him a month or so in advance and he'll probably forget you even asked him by Christmas (ladies - you know it's true!). If you can't bear to be as obvious as that, ask his best friend or a close family member such as his brother. They can probably be bribed to ask him what he wants for Christmas on your behalf.

 

Remember, it may be the thought that counts, but men are practical creatures and want something they can use... so if you are truly stumped, a gift card to his favorite store can't go wrong. Most men love electronics the way most women love flowers, so a gift card to your local Best Buy, Frys or RadioShack may bring a smile to his face on Christmas morning. Good luck!
