Today of two of those writers, WisdomIsMisery and Dr. J share a couple tips for ensuring your significant other has a great Christmas.
1. WisdomIsMisery: I’ve already written about gift ideas for men. Today I will share my secret for how I conquer the daunting task of shopping for women during the holiday season. I have a notoriously bad memory, but I’m a great gift giver. If you follow me on Twitter, then you already know I am never without my phone. I use this to my advantage.
Whenever I’m with a special lady friend, I am always conscious of little comments she makes about gifts she has gotten in the past or would like to get in the future. The longer I know her the better. Throughout the year I plug this information into my phone so that by the time her birthday or Christmas rolls around I have a list of gift ideas to choose from. All of which are unique and tailored to her desires. I’ll usually combine a few related gifts to let her know I’ve been paying attention all year when she thought I was ignoring her.
However, if you’re late to the party, e.g. like most men you waited until December to even think about Christmas, you can still turn the game around. All you have to do is take your significant other to the mall and pay attention. While she is running around trying on outfits and pointing out
crap the things she likes in various stores take a mental notes of a few different items and return later to purchase them without her. That way she has told you what she wants without telling you what she wants since we all know women want men to be psychic anyway. She’ll be so surprised she might even cry and will probably let you unwrap her for your thoughtful, sensitive ways.
