Last Minute Gift Ideas for Your Spouse that Won’t Disappoint!

December 23, 2016

Wondering what do you get your spouse for Christmas?

I am one of those last minute shoppers … who ventures out on Christmas Eve … wandering the mall … in search of that perfect gift for Karen … sometimes I know what I am looking for … but many times I am praying it will jump out and say “Here I am!”

Honestly … that’s how I got into this insane habit … I had a great streak going of seeing something nice on a mannequin and saying: “I like that … Karen will like that … let’s get it and get out of here!”

I’d have it wrapped … then head home … place it under the tree … and wait impatiently for Christmas morning …

And on Christmas day she opened it and loved it!

But there’s got to be a better way to choose a gift … so we’ve played with that all time greatest Christmas gifts for a true love list … the 12 days of Christmas for some inspiration … hum the tune in your head as you read them …  but don’t sing the parentheses! …

The promise of no one else but me  (unconditional commitment is foundational to marriage)

2 listening ears  (one for facts and one for feelings)

3 little words (I love you!)

4 financial planners  (to help secure your financial future)

5 dates together  (give some quality time and attention to each other)

6 sexless backrubs  (relieving stress … )

7 TV shows a turned off  (so you can tune into each other)

8 encouraging words (speak life into each other)

9 nights of nookie (the exclusive love language of married couples … enjoy!)

10 10 minute devotions  (spiritual connecting builds intimacy)

11 tingling touches  (don’t lose those loving “feelings” hold hands, etc … )

12 acts of kindness …(take some chores off your partner’s list!)

Why not figure out a way to “wrap up” one or more of these for your true love this Christmas?
