Works for Me Wednesday – Tell Him!!!

wfmwsmall.jpgFor your anniversary and/or birthday just tell him what you want. Write it down if you don’t think he’s listening; take pictures if he still doesn’t get it. Even better, just buy it for yourself. This is what works for me! 🙂

Today is my anniversary. We’ve been married 9 years. What did I get for my anniversary & Valentine’s Day present? A much needed case for my iPod. It’s what I wanted, I was in the mall and called him, he told me to go ahead and get it, I’m happy. Plain and simple. After 9 years surprises are sometimes good but at this point not always necessary. I love him more than I did then on our wedding day. Just because he doesn’t surprise me with some extravagant gift doesn’t mean the magic is gone. It hasn’t even stalled.

    I haven’t been married long, but I’m already learning that the direct route is best for setting gift/holiday expectations! That way I don’t end up disappointed, and he doesn’t get frustrated trying to find something (that I might not even want!)

    Good tip 🙂 And, Happy Anniversary! 🙂

    I bought my own chocolates this year, since I saw the exact kind I wanted. It worked great! Good tip.
