Askmen.com posted an article for their readers full of advice on what to get the ladies in their life for Christmas. Topping the list of “what to get for the wife”……a portrait….yep, a giant painting of your wife’s face is exactly what she is hoping you will get her….NOT! Trust me, guys…..this will not go over well. No woman wants to look at herself all the time, nor does she want everyone who comes over to the house to think she is a narcissist. You are way better off to get her #3 on the list (spa certificate….nearly every woman who called in to guess said “spa day”…really, you can’t go wrong there!)
Here is the list, courtesy of www.askmen.com
1. A Portrait Of Your Wife
Why? Okay, so that’s not your wife, but you get the general idea. Take a picture of your wife to a professional painter and have him immortalize her beauty forever. This is an original gift that should bring tears to her eyes — unless of course she ends up looking like the Queen Mother, or worse… Kramer. You can get the Kramer here.
Bonus Points: A gift such as this one is sure to become her most cherished — especially as the years go by.
Thoughtfulness factor = 200 out of 10
2. Designer Watch
Why? If you want your woman to spend more of her days thinking of you, then tell her to keep you in mind whenever she checks the time. You can get it here.
Bonus Points: Add an hourglass to the gift and tell her that the shape of it reminds you of her.
Timelessness factor = 10 out of 10
3. Complete Spa Treatment
Why? Treat her to a special day in which she gets spoiled and treated like a princess. This all-day pampering will make her feel like a vibrant teenager again. You can get it here.
Bonus Points: After her princess treatment comes to an end, bring her home and treat her like a queen.
Reciprocity factor = 10 out of 10
4. Designer Coat
Why? Women love clothing and you’ll score big points if you choose something that she will actually wear. You can’t go wrong with the Slim Allen coat (STYLE: C66141). Get it here.
Bonus Points: Place a pair of genuine leather gloves in the pocket and she’ll kiss you all over.
Body heat factor = 9 out of 10
5. Silk Robe / Lingerie
Why? Show her that you still think she is the sexiest woman in the world. Or if there isn’t enough skimpy material to go around her waist, consider buying her a ¾ length silk robe instead. She will appreciate the thought. You can get it here.
Bonus Points: When she tries on her gift, make it clear that you’re incredibly excited.
Turn-her-on factor = 9 out of 10
