I’m sure you’ve been in a situation where you are having a dilemma what to give your man for Christmas, his birthday, or your anniversary. It really isn’t easy choosing which gift would be best for your man, is it?
Giving gifts is fun and a good way to get to know your man more and he will know more about you too. It will help you understand what he likes, what he needs and what pleases him. He will surely love to receive a watch he’d been eyeing for a while or a game for his Xbox or anything else that he needs. Giving gifts though should not be done to impress – that’s a big no.
In choosing a gift to give your man, you have to consider the length and status of your relationship. I think this is essential because you don’t want to be misinterpreted and you only want him to be happy with your gift in whatever status you are in, dating, committed relationship, marriage, etc.
Perhaps you’re only dating for few months, or you’re in a long term relationship, you have to consider this. There’s an article I’ve read from http://www.TheFeminineWoman.com about this. The reason is that it might be hard to know what he would like and what he needs. If you give a funny gift, would he get the humor? If you give something you think is sentimental to him, would he appreciate it?
You have to know what your man is up to and it would be easier to choose a gift for him. Perhaps he is into sports; you can give him something that he can use when playing basketball, tennis, badminton or golf. Or if he goes to the gym, you can give him something he can use to the gym – for example an organic water bottle, a soft towel he can use to wipe his sweat, or workout clothes. If he is into video games, learn what games are available in the market that he might like. The gesture of giving him gifts that he can use to enjoy, better himself will make him aware that you care for his enjoyment.
Men are not that hard to please, they are not like us women who will over analyze everything our man does for us. Gifts that support his mission and where he gets enjoyment from are one of the best gifts for your man.
However, I believe that the best things are not things at all. The best gifts you can give to your man when you’re dating, in a relationship long term or just new together or married is the gift of freedom. Oh, don’t get me wrong. It’s not setting your man free from your relationship. But what I mean with freedom is that giving him the freedom to be himself, to be a masculine man and to have his own choices, to express himself as a man.
In a relationship, we women often forget that a man needs to be himself. We tend to turn them into women and expect too much from them knowing what we want them to do. So I think it’s that time of the year to give your man the gift of freedom to be a masculine man that he is.
So what gift are you giving your man?
