Only you know your spouse like you do. Granted, his family and his friends may understand the types of hobbies he enjoys or the types of sports he likes to play in his free time. However, as the spouse and the love of your man’s life, only you know the way to his heart.
With that in mind, you want to get him the perfect give for his birthday and you don’t want to have to guess at what the best ideas will be. For a complete list, trying to click here and get some ideas.
If those ideas don’t do it for you, here is a sure-fire way to figure out exactly what he wants wrapped up for him this year on his special day:
1. Listen to him talk about his dreams
Sure, he comes home from a long day at work each day and settles down at dinner to tell you all about how his boss rattled his chain today. However, are you listening to him when he tells you his life goals for what he really wants to do? Are you hearing him when he speaks of, “someday?” Take a good listen to him next time he chooses to share his hopes and goals for the future and you may just get a glimpse of what he’d love to see on his birthday list.
Here are some great places to start:
2. Figure out what gets him excited
Sure, he has the friends over on Thursday nights to watch the games on television. Sure, they choose to sip on a few cold ones of their choice and yell at the TV. But listen carefully; when you least expect it, you may get a subtle comment about a product or service they see on a certain commercial. Listen for certain criticisms of the products and also for admiration. When you hear admiring remarks, take out a piece of paper and a pen and write it down: you may just stumble across something that he’s always wanted.
3. Ask him what he wants
Forget setting a budget and forget being practical: you can always scale down to reality once you learn what he’d really like for a gift this year. Sure, you may ask what he’d like to do most this summer and the answer may be a brand new boat. However, you could either scale down the request to include a smaller fishing boat, go in with a couple friends in regards to a time-shared typed of watercraft, or even rent him something nice for a day out on the lake. When all else fails, charter fishing boats exist as well and don’t necessarily have to be the entire deal of buying a massive speed boat! Get creative and show your man you’ve been listening to his most desirable gift ideas this year!
