Alright, men, we are here to rescue you before the holiday gift buying season ensues. It's the time to show your mom, your wife and your daughter(s) how much you value them. These tips are for you if you're searching for a gift that will communicate thoughtfulness, appreciation and your attentiveness to their wants and needs. If you are also looking to deviate from your go-to gift-giving patterns, read on. We know you're busy. So, we've broken this down into five quick tips and gift suggestions.
Tips : How to find a thoughtful gift for her
Tip 1. Women like to feel appreciated
When we feel undervalued, we also feel unnoticed, hurt and we get down on ourselves. Telling us what we mean to you - even if it's as simple as "That dress looks nice" - is INCREDIBLY important!
Tip 2. Women like to feel beautiful
You make our day when you tell us we are beautiful. Not only that, when you provide us with a way to feel beautiful we know you've noticed and appreciate us!
Tip 3. Women, especially moms, don't always take time to relax and meet their own needs
Relaxation is key to a happy life. You know she's busy, you know she works hard. Often, everyone else's needs come before her own - dinner, soccer practice, back massages, work schedules, the list goes on. Show her you appreciate her hard work.
Tip 4. Women often value Experiences over Tangible Items.
Tangible gifts are nice, don't get us wrong, but we will take happy memories any day! We want to DO something with you because we value and love you. In turn, you spending time with us or giving us the opportunity to make memories with our friends and family lets us know you value and love us too.
Tip 5. Women value Authenticity
Whatever you give us - words, time or something tangible - be genuine about it.
