Most guys need help in the shopping for gifts department. Most women do not need help shopping for ourselves (the only thing we need help with is shopping less!). So....how do we reconcile these two things? Put them together.
Help your man buy gifts for you. They are usually relieved when we share gift suggestions.
Next week, we will be exploring some Valentine's Day gift ideas next week for her. Yes, I realize this blog is mostly read by women. Feel free to use the ideas to help your significant other find a gift for you. Here are your options:
- Forward the info to him, hinting you would love this for V-Day (if he is someone who will actually take action). If he is not a Valentine's person, perhaps he will get inspired. Or maybe you suggest for your birthday, Xmas, etc.
- Buy it yourself, after it ships, let him wrap it (you may need to provide wrapping paper). Make sure to show how excited you are for this gift so he feels part of it. Either buy it with his credit card, or he can reimburse you. Most men will be happy to pay and avoid the shopping part.
- Treat yourself!
Next week highlights local SF companies. We are lucky to house so much talent in this beautiful city. I'm thrilled to feature some of our local vendors.
