Hi Masshole Mommy readers! Chris here again with another guest post.
It’s perfect timing for the holiday season and I wanted to talk about the importance of giving the wife/girlfriend the perfect Christmas gift.
Your significant other has probably been hinting probably for at least the last six months about what they want. But ladies, guys are thick-skulled, so they don’t pay all that much attention and don’t listen really well. So, if you didn’t cut out a picture, put it in an envelope with the exact change, safety pin it to his shirt, drive him to the store and gave him the salespersons name to speak to – then YOU ARE NOT getting the gift you want.
Now, fellas there are some do’s and don’ts for gift giving and I am speaking from experience..
1. Don’t give Love coupons for back massages or foot rubs.
2. Don’t give a Tiffany’s Box with something other than Tiffany’s inside of it.
3. Don’t give something that is for the household (Blender, mop, or new car headlight).
Do buy tickets for shows (hint: pick a show that you will most likely hate the most and get those because she will love them).
My personal favorite and it involves the least amount of work on my part is to say “Honey for my Christmas present to you, I will not look at the credit card bill for one month”,
Buying clothes is also a big no no. You don’t want to be getting the wrong size!!
One big gift for each other is a great win/win because she will buy it and she will like it (ie: a new TV)
Last, but not least, you can never go wrong with jewelry. And do not wrap the jewelry box in 5 rolls of wrapping paper with two rolls of tape, because it will not be funny to her (especially in my case because would lose on my birthday – which falls only three weeks after Christmas -because she will remember what a pain in the butt that present was and then you are stuck on your birthday with nothing but a headache).
Just remember, you could end up in the doghouse like this guy:
