How Much Should I Spend on My Significant Other During the Holidays?
December 1, 2016
For couples, it is the season to begin looking for the ideal Christmas present for their other half. Although you may share each moment together, it can be extremely difficult to purchase something that she or he will like. Doing it without feeling like a cheapskate, while still having to buy presents for others, is even more of a challenge.
Find out what she desires Occasionally, you can discover what she likes by either asking her (indirectly or directly), or by thinking back to previous discussions.
If you wish to surprise her, use her relatives or friends to discover this information on your behalf. If it's a 'just because' present, think about what she has requested before, or even 'salivated over' while at the shopping mall.
Buy some catalogs and magazines and ask your partner to pick what she wants for future reference. You should do this every season, because clothing styles and preferences can change frequently.
Purchase a gift voucher, if you are unsure of her exact preferences in certain areas. For instance, if she has said she wants some new garments, offer her a gift voucher to her favorite shopping mall, and write a message on the voucher that it is meant to be spent on clothes.
Regardless of how you approach it, a present that indicates you have spent time considering her feelings, or thinking about her, will be welcomed even if it is not exactly what she would have bought herself.
Give her the present Even potentially bad presents can be salvaged with good presentation. If you purchased your partner a new hoover vacuum cleaner find a funny or unique way to give it to her.
Perhaps the gift is something that you are sure she will love. If so, present it to her quickly, so she can start enjoying it straightaway. For instance, if you bought your partner a day's treatment at a spa, you could just give her the leaflet and say: "go and have some fun".
