Christmas is almost here and you’re screwed because a.) you haven’t started shopping for your wife/girlfriend b.) you haven’t shopped enough c.) that girl is hard to please d.) you suck at gift giving.
Thought I’d volunteer some items on my personal wish list (and couple just for fun) to help inspire you. Make sure that even if you didn’t really spend a lot of time selecting the gift, your girl thinks you did.
The Spa disclaimer —— Don’t get me wrong - I haven’t met a girl yet who didn’t love the spa gift certificate purchased by her man. Want to score extra points? Put enough money on the card for her to take her friend. Even if she doesn’t use it to bring a friend and spends a luxurious day by herself, either way you win. Be sure to ask the spa for a pricing list and match the card accordingly. If that’s too much hassle, one call to your local spa should be enough for them to help you out.
The Wish List
These Isotoner smarTouch Stretch Leather and Spandex Gloves are great for any girl with a smart phone. Now when she opens it be sure to tell her how you want her to stay warm and keep those beautiful fingers warm. Then kiss her hand. Do it. Be suave. Own your Dos Equis guy moment.
What’s more romantic than a journal inspired by Shakespeare for your beloved to write all of her deepest secrets and desires? Take it up a notch and inscribe it with something (brief) that will make her heart melt. Protip: If you’ve never seen her wear pink try one of the other colors they offer in the collection.
Women love handbags. Why not show your sensitive side with this pretty little number? Want to surprise her? Put some concert tickets in the bag. BAM. Done. Gift and a date later. Sure to satisfy - both of you.
If your girl is a geek she’ll love this drum machine t-shirt. If she’s a girly girl don’t risk it. You don’t want her thinking you bought her something that’s really for you.
She can wear this very elegantly or with a pair of jeans. The choice is hers. Either way you win on the price. Don’t forget to mention you bought it on Etsy, she’ll think you spent an hour picking it out. If you’re into a naughty Christmas you can match it with this.
Try not to enlist her friends. There is a high probability they will rat you out for cutting it so close to Christmas. Going solo on this will not only impress the hell out of her and her friends, but you won’t have to worry about any spoiled surprises. Good luck Romeo. With how many days you have left to shop you’re going to need it.
