Does your wife have a birthday coming up? If you're lucky, she already gave you some pretty strong hints about what she wants for her birthday. On the other hand, maybe you are clueless as to what to buy for your wife's birthday. Maybe she has told you that she just wants to be surprised. If you're looking for help on what to buy, read on for some ideas that might help you.
Don't Buy Anything Practical — You might be tempted to select something like a new hand mixer or a four-slice toaster. Don't go there. Instead, buy your wife something that will spoil her.
Maybe you are on a pretty tight budget. If so, think about buying a scented candle, hand and body lotion, or a pretty box of note cards. If your bank account is healthy, give her the lotion and a scented candle, but add a gift card for a day at the spa. Another idea for an inexpensive gift is to buy your wife a CD with love songs on it, and blow her mind with the more costly gift of a Mediterranean cruise along with the CD.
Choose Gifts To Inspire Your Wife — Think of something your wife has been wanting to achieve, and buy a gift that represents that.
For instance, maybe your wife has been wanting to learn a foreign language. If the foreign language she wants to learn is French, give her a bottle of French perfume and a gift card for an online French language class. On the other hand, if your wife has been wanting to be a gourmet cook, a cookbook along with a certificate to attend cooking classes would be perfect.
Birthday Gifts To Add To A Collection — Maybe your wife collects certain things. If so, think about buying her a gift to add to her collection.
Does your wife collect nativity sets? Even if it's not Christmas, think of buying her a new nativity set. Or maybe your wife collects porcelain figurines. A special one she's had her eye on would put a smile on her face. If your wife has a collection of animal pins, buy her a new animal pin to add to the ones she already has. If your wife is like many other women, she has a collection of purses. Buy her a summer purse in her favorite color.
