What to Buy for Your Wife for Christmas

What does my wife want for Christmas? What can you get her to impress your wife? She won't tell you what she wants, and you weren't paying much attention when shopping with her, then this isn't going to be easy. Some say the thought is what it counts. I am sorry, but this is just an excuse. She doesn't think that way unless you are broke, or she is a saint. It does matter what you buy for your wife, and you know it.

You don't have a clue what she wants, and it happens to the vast majority of men. There are two ways to approach this, try to find out what she wants, and this is usually the best approach, or go with gifts that women love in general.

If it's too late, or you tried everything to find out what she wants without result, take a look at the rest of this page. We will show you what to not buy and what works as a gift for every woman, and you will definitely buy the perfect present for your wife.

What Does Your Wife Want for Christmas

The truth is, your wife might not even know what she wants, or she has so many thinks that she would like that is hard to decide what is the best gift. Don't try to see this through a man's eyes, because this wouldn't help. Try to see it through her eyes.

Here are a few ways to surprise and impress your wife with a gift that she doesn't expect.

Take notes about the things she tells you she likes, not necessarily things that she would like to have, but also note things she loves, or activities that she would like to do.

For instance when you go shopping together, be genuinely interested and ask her what she thinks about the things that she looks at, like clothes, purses, jewelry, etc... Propose yourself other variants, even if you don't plan to buy on the spot, to get her reactions to various gifts. For instance, show her the prettiest wristwatch that you could afford, and see how she reacts to that.

If she likes to listen to music maybe a great sound system would be a great gift for her.

If she is an outdoorsy person, and she likes to sky, buy her a new and elegant sky costume, and better skis, or maybe newer skates.

What Not To Buy As A Gift For Your Wife

Whether your wife and you are together for a long time or are newlyweds, you should never buy any of theses things as a gift for Christmas, or her birthday, or your anniversary, or Valentine's Day.

Never Buy These for Your Wife as a Present

  • Anti wrinkle cream.
  • Hair removal equipment. If she needs it she will buy it herself. If you think she wants a laser removal system, discretely mention that if she wants one it would be the best time to buy it, because now the prices are great, but don't buy her one as a gift.
  • Cleaning equipment or products, like vacuums. If you want to make her life better just buy one but not as a gift.
  • Cooking, or baking tools, utensils or equipment, no matter how fancy that is. This something you would buy together for your household and not as a gift.
  • Don't buy her cheap perfumes or cosmetics. This is truly offensive.
  • Don't buy a gift for yourself. If you can use that gift is for yourself. Nothing that you can use should be offered as a gift.
  • Do not ever, buy her exercise equipment as a gift even if you know she wants it. Buy it just because you both need it, but not as a gift.
  • If she struggles with her weight, Spanx apparel or a diet book are very wrong choices.
  • Don't buy her a pet, as a gift.
  • Stay away from clothes unless you have insider information and you are sure about her size.

The best Gifts for Your Wife - Jewelry

There is no way you can go wrong with jewelry. Every woman loves jewelry, and no matter how many pieces she owns, the last one will be as great as the first one.

Some women love gold, some love silver, some love both silver and gold equally. White gold is very trendy now, and it makes a great gift.

As a general rule, when you buy jewelry, don't buy the cheapest pieces, buy tasteful and elegant pieces. The look of the jewelry is as important as the materials. If you don't know what to buy, take a look at the list below, these are great looking, modern pieces.

Wrong Gifts For Your Girlfriend

Perfumes are among the best gifts for your wife, choose wisely, by looking at the Amazon ratings, the better the rating the higher the chances she will like it.

With notes of Passion Fruit, Orange, Vetiver, Mimosa, Jasmine, Ylang, and Violet it is a very feminine perfume that she can use with special occasions, like the Valentine's day, or a romantic evening, you get the idea...

Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker for Women, Eau de Parfum, 3.4-Ounce Spray Bottle
Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker for Women, Eau de Parfum, 3.4-Ounce Spray Bottle

Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker, is an ultra-feminine scent, yet not the cute type.This perfume lasts a long time, although some of the tones fade earlier than others, and it matches sensationally many skin types. It will smell differently on different skin types, but never dull, or unpleasant.Great reviews, on Amazon, and a big seller.
