Things Your Husband Secretly Wants In a Gift

By nature, most men do not adore the cutesy stuff we women find adorable. They cannot relate to cute stuffed toys, personalized mugs and t-shirts as we can. They never say it out loud because they don’t want to hurt us.  I asked this question to quite a few married men that what they want the most in a gift from their wives. It turned out that a husband secretly wishes that his wife gifts him with a gift that is:

1. Practical

Yes, your husband wants a gift he can actually use. Practicality is the number one trait a man wants in a gift. If your gift can be used by your husband then he will love it.

2. Needed

Before selecting a gift always ask yourself this question, “Does he need this item?” If he does then go ahead and buy it. Otherwise, find out something else. For example, if you are going to buy a wallet for your husband and he has already a wallet in a very good condition then he might not use your gift as much. On the other hand if he really needs something he will appreciate it much more and actually use it.

3. As Per His Preferred Specifications

Men are particular about the specifications especially when it comes to their electronic gadgets and tools. If you are buying say an i-phone or any other electronic device then do keep in mind his desired specifications. He might not like a random tool or gadget.
