The question of choosing a gift for her husband on his birthday every year confronts every married woman. And the main task of the wife is to ensure that the moment of presenting the present is remembered for a long time by the husband, and the thing itself turns out to be very necessary and useful.
Features of choice
When choosing a gift for a husband, you must be guided by his passions, hobbies and hobbies. Men, as a rule, do not like useless gifts, so you should approach the purchase very seriously. Long before the event, you need to start listening to a man and try to catch his desires. This should be done carefully and unobtrusively — so that the hero of the occasion does not guess about the upcoming surprise. The exception is large anniversary gifts, the purchase of which agreed in advance with the birthday person and discussed at the family council.
It is also necessary to remember that most men prefer gifts intended for them personally, so an attempt to combine the purchase of a common household item with a gift for a husband will fail.
Moreover, before buying a gift, you need to clearly understand what things to give to your loved one is not recommended. Below is a list of gifts, from the purchase of which, due to superstition or violation of the rules of etiquette, it is better to refrain.
- Shaving and bath accessories - not the gifts that should be given for a birthday. Such things are more appropriate for February 23, New Year or any other general holidays. The same applies to socks, shorts and underpants, which are more than indecent to give to a birthday man.
- decorative interior items, such as figurines, vases or table souvenirs are also poorly perceived by men and do not cause them special positive emotions. Therefore, gifts should be intended exclusively for the hero of the occasion, and not his apartment.
- Goods of poor quality should also not be bought. If there is not enough money, then it is better to opt for a small, but high-quality thing, rather than buy something large and low-grade, which will quickly fail.
- If the family is paying off a mortgage loan or just going through hard times, with Buying a gift that is too expensive is worth delaying. Otherwise, a big burden will fall on the general budget, which will force the man to look for a way out of this situation and overshadow all the joy of the gift. In such cases, it is better to prepare an inexpensive, but original gift, possibly made by yourself. Moreover, even if the family’s finances are in order, it is not recommended to make a present worth more than the husband’s average monthly income. This is explained by the fact that donating items that he is not able to pay for in everyday life will cause the birthday person a feeling of discomfort and will negatively affect his self-esteem.
- Money is also not a good option for a gift from a wife. Another thing is from relatives, colleagues and friends. From them, such a present is perceived perfectly, while the husband expects much more attention and care from his wife than just an envelope with money. You can give cash only at the request of the spouse himself, hover, in this case, it is better to beat the gift. To do this, you can put the bills in a beautiful wallet or purse, pack them beautifully and only then present them to your husband.
As for popular superstitions, there is an opinion that the gift of piercing and cutting objects can provoke frequent quarrels, and a wristwatch will put an end to relationships by stopping.

On the day of the banquet, friends one by one call the birthday man and, apologizing, report that they will not be able to come, while referring to fairly good reasons. The husband, of course, is upset, and the wife is trying in every possible way to support him. Then, literally a couple of hours before the banquet, the wife is urgently called “to work”. The couple arrange a meeting directly in the cafe, where the hero of the occasion goes without any mood. It is not difficult to guess that when he enters the hall upset, he is met there by a friendly, jubilant company of friends, headed by the organizer of all this “disgrace” — a beautiful wife.
- Quest “Find a present.” It is also a very interesting gift-emotion, which requires quite thorough preparation and time. The essence of the quest is as follows: the wife hides the box with the main gift in a safe place and lays out tips throughout the apartment where to look for it. Each such note indicates the place where the next one lies and contains a wish or declaration of love.
Next to each note, you can put a cute little thing, like a keychain, car air freshener, or a new mouse pad. As a result, while the spouse finds the main gift, he will already have many small but useful things.
- Movie. Such a gift also causes a storm of emotions and is remembered for a long time by the birthday man.
