Another year has passed, the festival of love is just around the corner and you are looking for a Christmas present. Your mother-in-law helped you on your wife's birthday, now you're on your own. You don't even want to think about the upcoming anniversary in six weeks.
There is no general answer to the question "What do women like?" We have therefore put together a few tips for you on how you can find out what you can really do to please your wife or girlfriend.
Tips for the perfect gift for your wife for every occasion
In the following, we will introduce you to four options that should make it easier for you to choose a gift for Christmas, birthday and Co. You can use these strategies when you have no idea or you already have ideas and want confirmation. If one tip doesn't work for you, skip to the next one and don't give up.
1. Sit down and reflect
Consciously take 15 minutes of your own time. Grab a piece of paper and pen and make yourself comfortable. Now you look back over the last few weeks. You ask yourself questions like: "Has my wife been talking about her interests lately?" Or "Is there a topic that concerns her right now?"
Write down everything you can think of and finally go through everything again. Think about which products might match this information. Possible interests are: sports, books, languages, films, music, crafts / DIY and cosmetics.
2. Look around the apartment
Often the solution to the riddle is not far away and you can find answers in your immediate vicinity. Try to empathize with your wife and take a tour of your shared apartment from this perspective. If you don't live together, you can look around quietly when she's busy. In the bathroom you have your peace and quiet and can take a look in the cosmetics cabinet.
What products does she use regularly? Is decorative cosmetics important to you? How important is personal hygiene in your life? What genres do the books she reads come from? What topics is she interested in? Does she value decoration? How does she find plants? Do you discover high quality clothing such as shoes or handbags? Does she wear jewelry regularly?
Anything you notice can ultimately help you find the right gift.
3. Watch and listen
Are you visiting the family and on the way back does your wife keep talking about the vase on the sideboard? Or did you notice the new oven with smart function? When you stroll through the city center together - which shops does she stop at? What is she saying? Two weeks of intensive attention in everyday life can already be enough to recognize your wife's new interests. If you have already thought about it beforehand, you will also find out whether your theses are confirmed.
Try to interpret comments, reactions, and facial expressions as possible signals. It can be exhausting, but it pays off in the end. Whenever your wife verbalizes an interest, you can use that for your gift selection.
4. Look for inspiration on Amazon
Some websites have their own gift categories. Right now at Christmas time you can find product suggestions for your wife, brother or mother-in-law on Amazon. Whether technology, home improvement, film or beauty gifts - there is something for everyone! Click through the selection and ask yourself the following question if an article catches your eye: "Could my wife be interested in this?".
You can save every product for which you can answer the question with YES in a gift list. In the end, you can use it to get an overview. For example, if you have many products for your hobby in the list, it probably makes sense to buy a gift for your hobby.
The list function on Amazon or other websites is also useful if you want to save ideas for later. You can watch your wife, sister, daughter, etc. all year round and constantly fill the lists with new products. At the end of the year you sort out and choose a gift. You are then the one who listens carefully and knows your partner well. That attention is reflected in your gift and that is what makes an impression.
5. Get help from your wife's relatives
Have you already tried everything, but are you as far as you were at the beginning? No problem! By asking friends and family specifically, you avoid nasty surprises. Don't be afraid to express your insecurities and ask for help. The exchange can save you from buying an inappropriate gift.
Did you find out what your wife likes? Congratulations, you can now search for specific products. If your wife is interested in cosmetics and beauty, we now have a suggestion for you.
