I want to let you in on a little secret, ladies.
But before I tell you my little tidbit, I want to tell you to hop on over to the blogs listed at the end of this post for even more awesome free Christmas printables! Yeah, yeah, I’m getting to the printables part! There’s an order to these things, you know.
First I have to give a PSA.
And then I have to tell a little story.
And this story starts with a secret…
Are you ready?
Good. Here it is:
*We’re not hard to shop for.*
I know every year at precisely this time you like to open your mouths and bellow to the four winds about how hard it is to find a gift your husband or boyfriend will like.
Well, madam, I’m here to tell you, it’s not hard at all!
You’re just buying the wrong gifts!
Your man doesn’t want clothing! (Even though he dresses a decade behind the times.)
You man doesn’t want power tools! (At least, not from you. He needs to buy them himself, so he can grunt with satisfaction at his bargain-finding superpowers…even though you could have gotten it 20% cheaper.)
He doesn’t want food. (He’s a man and therefore perfectly capable of killing whatever he wants to consume.)
Ladies, your man wants BOOZE!1
Beer, wine, spirits – they are all perfect gifts for the modern man.
How much alcohol should you give?
How strong should it be?
Ladies, this is purely a function of how long you’ve been together.
Just remember Greg’s Golden Rule: The Longer, The Stronger!
That’s right, a man on his third decade of marriage is going to need something strong, and preferably a lot of it compared to the poetry-spouting, always-agreeing boyfriend of three months who still wears the hideous sweater you gave him to mark your one-month anniversary.
So stop stressing about the “perfect gift.”
Stop trying to out-think your man by getting him what you think he thinks he needs. (A squirrel could out-think most of us, so don’t waste your time.)
And for the love of all that’s holy, stop giving us sweaters and ties! (Seriously, don’t go there.)
We want booze! If you need to jazz up the bottle, then toss one of our free printable wine tags around it and call it a day!
He’ll love you for it.
And you may just make it to that three decade mark.
1Hey, if your guy doesn’t drink, don’t fret! We’ve still got you covered, madam! That’s why we’re also giving you 10 sweet free printable gift tags! Just slap one of our awesome tags on that package of kale you’re gonna give him, and you’re good to go!
