Thank you to Harry’s for sponsoring this post. As always, I only share about brands that I love and believe in, and of course, think you’ll love as well!
Michael just had his birthday a couple weekends ago, and leading up to it, I was back and fourth on what to get him for a gift. Michael is a pretty simple person, but sometimes I have a hard time figuring out what to get him. He’s not one to drop hints or come out and say what he might want, and when I ask him all I get is, “I don’t want anything.” Has this ever happened to you? It can be quite the experience sometimes, haha.
Together, Michael and I try our best to lead intentional lives. A huge part of this for us is to not buy useless and unnecessary items. Items that don’t have an intentional purpose will just create clutter all around the house, and that’s something we don’t need.
Today, I want to share with you some questions I ask myself when I need to choose a gift for my husband. These questions can be super helpful to you if you’re stuck on just what to get for your spouse or anyone else that may be slightly difficult to buy for.
3 QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN CHOOSING A GIFT FOR YOUR SPOUSE:
1. What do they like to participate in? Yes, this is a loaded question at first, but it can really help you to narrow down your ideas. Think of some hobbies that they participate in. Do they enjoy playing or watching sports? Do they have a favorite TV show? Do they love traveling? Ask yourself questions about things they do for enjoyment. Perhaps you can get them a jersey of their favorite football player or some tickets to a big game near you. You’re bound to get some ideas from diving into questions like these.
2. Does this fit their lifestyle right now? After you’ve gathered some ideas in your head, write them down on a piece of paper. Go one by one down your list of possible gifts and ask yourself, “does this gift fit their lifestyle”? If someone enjoys going to the movies but is currently in a busy season of life, a movie gift card probably isn’t the way to go this time around. The same thing goes if they love to play sports but they currently have a broken foot. You’re not going to get them a new soccer ball, are you? You see what I mean? If a gift idea doesn’t fit their lifestyle right now, that’s okay – you can always use those ideas down the line.
3. Is this something they will use often? When in doubt, always choose intentionality… in all things, but especially when choosing a gift for your spouse. Most people think practical gifts are boring, but honestly, I’d say they’re some of the most useful. You can never go wrong by gifting something that you know for sure that someone needs and will use.
This is why I decided to get Michael a new shave set for his birthday! He was in need of a new one and I had seen tons of my friends rave about Harry’s shave sets and plans, so I decided that was the gift to get for my hubby on his birthday.
I chose to get him the Winston Set, which comes with the Winston razor handle, foaming shave gel, 3 German Engineered blade cartridges, and a travel blade cover.
Michael is loving his new shave set – the weight of the razor, the close shave, and the special touch of his initials engraved in the handle. Harry’s products are made really well and they’re extremely high quality. He gets the perfect shave at an amazing price. Here’s to Harry’s! It was the perfect gift for Michael.
