Birthday Gift Ideas for a Wife

Posted on :2013-04-22 in

Ever heard your wife say, with a stammer, “oh, how… nice” with an obviously confused and disappointed look on her face? That probably means for her birthday you just bought her a vacuum, a corded power drill, or a tacky box of chocolates from the Walgreens around the corner. This year, if you don’t want divorce papers as your birthday gift, get her something romantic! Here are some birthday gift ideas for your wife that are sure to wow her.

 

Learning the Person You Love

Before we even get started, you have to pay some attention to your wife as you should know at least a little bit about her tastes, likes and dislikes before attempting any gift giving.

 

If a woman is a “foodie” and loves a particular chef and you get her a signed copy of his cookbook, you have done well. If your wife said she wishes she cooked better and on her birthday you present her with a cookbook for dummies, in essence saying you whole heartily agree, you have not done so well.

 

Birthday Gift Ideas for a Wife

The following gift ideas can be real winners, but you still need to know if they fit your wife’s tastes as all women are different. Tips: Make a list of ideas and run it by her friends, make it something personal, and remember to surprise her.

 

Traditional Ways to Say I Love You

You could go traditional with a piece of jewelry. While you may think this is an easy gift, it in fact takes some effort if you are to pick something out that is her “style”. Notice the pieces she wears often. Are they gold, silver, copper? Do they include gemstones? Does she favor rings, necklaces, or bracelets? Does she like big pieces or small dainty ones? Have the piece inscribed with a loving saying if you really want to knock her off her feet! Flowers are also nice, but they will only really impress her if you remembered her favorite type, and possibly include a love note or poem you have written yourself. Perfume is another good gift, especially if you know her favorite fragrance or the one she has been wanting to try.

 

Modern Ways to Say I Love You

More great ideas include travel, such as a weekend stay at a charming bed and breakfast, or "how to" lessons for something she has been wanting to try such as dance lessons. Women even like electronics like you do if you know the particular ones she is after. Try getting her an iPod, and make her a “mixed tape” of today by making a playlist of romantic songs on her new iPod. Tickets to an event she wants to go to (no sports tickets unless she is the sports nut, not you) are a good option, think musical or concert of her favorite band.

 

It is not possible to pick a gift for every unique situation in this article. With a little imagination, and a little tapping into your own heart, you are sure to find your wife a great birthday gift that will leave her saying she genuinely loves it, with a big smile across her face.
