Staying creative with your gift-giving can be difficult when you’ve been together for a long time. But that makes it even more worth it to go that extra mile to get your beloved wife a meaningful present. Presents can be anything, and in almost every case, only your own creativity sets the bar.
That’s what we’re here for. To kickstart that creativity process. Read along and get some inspiration, both for those of you with big budgets, and for those of you who are on a more limited budget. There are so many different things to do, and so many places to get inspiration. In this article, we will have our focus on things that can’t just be bought and wrapped, but instead need to be experienced. If you prefer to get her a physical gift.
Before we start though, go ahead and make a reminder in your calendar, your phone or on a sticker on your bedside table, so you’ll remember the day.
A trip or an activity
Starting out with one that really requires your creativity. A trip, or an experience can be a really good present, if you manage to plan something that fits well to you and your wife’s schedule. The first thing you’ll want to be sure of when planning an activity, is that it’s going to be your plan. It’s no good if it actually ends up being your wife planning everything.
Even if you pay for a trip for a weekend away, you need to be the one responsible for all the details. If your wife ends up being responsible for everything else than buying the trip, then you’ll end up doing her no favors at all, except giving her more responsibility, and taking more time off her hands.
Focus on the romance
In long-term relationships, some couples have the tendency to become more like friends, rather than lovers. It is a natural transformation, as you both get older, you both grow up, and perhaps you have kids as well. Work life and parent life can be a challenge to the intimacy and romance that started the relationship in the first place. As such, a romantic present can often be great present for her.
If you want to reignite the spark in the bedroom, you could consider introducing toys to the bed. A lelo vibrator, or perhaps just a blindfold or handcuffs can really spice it up in the bedroom. This is both a nice and confident signal to send your wife, as it tells her that you want to focus on her. Sex can often become monotone in relationships, so trying something new will add an interesting dynamic.
Romantic presents can be many different things, so try to find something appropriate for her. For example, if she’s been busy lately, you could give her flowers and arrange for you to take care of the kids, while you send her to the spa. It might seem simple, but this can really be a relief for your wife.
