Gifts That Will Really Bring A Tear To Hubby’s Eye
Getting gifts is never a simple affair. Especially not for someone you love. You might risk getting into subjective territory, buying him cologne or clothes that he’s not really going to like as much as he pretends. Or you might get into a whole world of escalating value that soon gets unmanageable. This year, why not strip it back a little and give your husband something simple yet perhaps more emotionally valuable than anything you’ve given him before?
Focus on what’s important
What’s important to your husband? We don’t get a lot of time to prioritize our partners when we’re dealing with a household, with trying to pay the bills, and trying to make sure that our kids aren’t breaking everything including themselves. Focus on what your husband really values this year. For instance, if they have a big family that they don’t often get to see, think about arranging a trip for the family to reconnect. Or you can get a gift like a word art tree, bearing the names of all that family so he can fondly look on it and get reminded of them whenever he’s feeling distant. Or maybe you’re the thing that’s most valuable but he doesn’t get enough time with. Time for a simple date or a romantic night in can be really important, even if it seems simple and even unimaginative. The gift of touch and a listening ear can be the best he’s received all year.
A blast from the past
Most people value the experiences, the memories, even the way the world was in their past, as well. You can dig deep and show your husband how important that past is, not only to him but to you as well. For instance, there are gifts for men that come with a vintage, genuine newspaper from the day they were born. He might not remember so far back, but it gives him a concrete connection to that fateful day, showing that it’s one of the most important days to you as well as him.
Let the sappy side out
Everyone deserves to hear how much they’re valued and how much they’re loved. You might not be the sappiest of couples, so you don’t feel like it’s a side you have to show very often. But every match needs that moment from time to time. Alongside what other gifts you’re getting him, why not spend time making him something that spells out in deep, even embarrassing detail, how much he means to you? You can even go from A to Z, taking the time to explore not just the big things, but the little moments, habits, and memories that all add together to make the sum of the relationship. If nothing else brings a tear to his eye, that definitely will.
Change how you think about gifts for hubby. Most men don’t get the kind of emotional appreciation they should because a lot of people don’t think they crave it. They want affection, validation, and a touch of the feel-goods as much as anyone else. Showing it now and then isn’t just great for a birthday. It’s great for a relationship.
