Guessing what your spouse (or any person in your life for that matter) wants as a gift is about the least fun aspect of gift giving because it gives nearly everyone a complex and usually ends up in some form of disappointment. In the early parts of my relationship and marriage with my husband, I wanted him to come up with gift ideas on his own. These days, I make lists (with links directly to the thing, experience, etc.) and just e-mail him. Sometimes it’s wildly expensive things I have wanted but would never purchase for myself because I just can’t bring myself to do that (LV purse) and sometimes it’s as simple as some small things for the kitchen. I think he’s simply thankful that I have him some direction. I also stopped expecting people to guess what I wanted - it doesn’t work in my career, so why have expectations that it work at home? Some of my favorite gifts have been silly coffee mugs (world’s best mom when I became a mom, and a sectional mug with the airport where I did my first solo, etc.) with personal meaning. If you have children, and even if you do not, Maya Brenner makes some beautiful necklaces (delicate, not over the top) that can be customized with initials and birthstones. It’s high on my list for a Mother’s Day gift. Hope this helps!
