10 gifts your husband is secretly wants (but won't ask for)
Posted August 9
If your husband won't reveal the secret of what men truly want, don't worry, we've got you covered. So for his next birthday — or just a regular day, for that matter —knock his socks off with one of these great gifts.
1. You to do the things he likes
He doesn't want to make you do anything you don't want to do ... but you make him feel loved and extra important when you do something he likes, even though you don't.
2. A tradition
Give him the gift that keeps on giving by giving him a tradition that can create special memories for years to come. Maybe your thing will be Sunday night tandem bike rides, making up your own crazy ice cream flavors or a good ol' game night.
3. An inside joke
The best gifts are usually pretty simple, but are super thoughtful. Give him a gift that reminds him of an inside joke the two of you have.
4. An adventure
Take your husband on a treasure hunt through the woods or to try a new food — frog legs anyone?
5. To learn something new
When you sign him up for a class to learn guitar like he's always wanted or get him some language learning tapes, not only are you helping him achieve his goals, you're telling him you believe he can do it.
6. A date
7. Cuddle time
Your husband might not be all mushy gushy, but he loves to snuggle with you. Make snuggle time extra cozy by investing in a cheap (but durable) hammock.
8. To feel handsome
He's not going to beg for compliments, but it means so much to him to know that you think he's dreamy.
9. Cool tech
Get him something like a solar powered phone charger or a mobile printer that turns your phone into an instant camera.
10. A love letter
It doesn't have to be elaborate, just a small note tucked into his pocket.
At the end of the day, what he really wants is you
