What To Buy For Her

One of the hardest issues for many Men is what to buy their favourite Woman(en) as a gift. I am going to give some ideas and ways to find out here. The first thing to understand is that Men and Women really do act as if they come from other planets and John Gray may have had something when he wrote Women are from Venus and Men are from Mars. The issue is that we really do think on different planes. Men like gifts that they can play with or that they can use to make things, they like practical stuff like work benches saws and screwdrivers. They are Martian, Women like things that pamper, indulge them a little, or a lot. Buying her a Stove just because she does all the cooking will not cut it! Venus is the Goddess of love so think along those lines and you will not go far wrong.

Now just because Women are generally in the Venus mode does not mean that yours will be, if she is not however there will be major hints made and nudges as to what she believes are responsible gift choices, this is particularly so if you are a large family suffering under the current recession and in that case a new stove may be right. I assure you if that is the case she will be hinting pretty hard! Women are nothing if not practical when it comes to Economic decisions they are actually way more frugal than Men, unless they have the means of course.

Here is another point worth noting if children are involved and you have not attended to their gifts first never ever overdo it on her. This would be asking for trouble!

As we want to avoid trouble here I suggest that you watch and listen for the hints that will come your way if you are observant enough in the month or two before the event for which you are buying the gift. Good that covers the introductory ground work.

    I agree with your comments totally, as I too have allergies, strangely cats and horses are two of them! Cigarette smoke is the worst for me though.

    Hopefully people pay attention to things like allergies. Animals or perfume would not be things I could keep. I like your list, quite sensible and that dash of romance too.

    @Lyra Kua: I have found over the years that a lot of women keep all of their old stuffed animals. They do not usually mind a new addition either.
