in the generous life

Hi, gals,
This is the list of gifts ideas for men that I crafted from emails and comments from Generous Husbands everywhere (with a few additions or specific suggestions added by Paul and me). The links are monetized, so using them will help us. Where possible, links are to a search page for the item listed.

I will continue to add ideas as I receive them. I’ve listed the items by type. If a gentleman asked for a specific item, I mention it in parenthesis. 

Many merchants allow people to create “wishlists.” (like Check to see if a wishlist is public or private (usually you can do either) or can be seen by a limited group of people.

There are many holiday specials (shop online at your favorite stores) and great coupon deals through companies like Groupon.

Personal Items

♦  an electric razor (Norelco
♦  a quality pocket knife 
♦  clothing (wool socks, polo style shirts, Clark’s shoes)
♦  cologne (the one that turns her on) 

Hobbies and Interests

♦  home brewing items
♦  exercise equipment (exercise mat, heart rate monitor watch, crossfit equipment)

♦  ear buds (usually something in the $40 range is good)
♦  gift certificate to their favorite techie place

Quality Time

♦  tell him that you want him sexually and make good on that
♦  have sex (a lot, when he’s not expecting it)

♦  treat sex as something important (more important than housework, not on your “to do” list) 
♦  pantybypost (dot) com (monthly subscription to receive panties or briefs, I did not create a clickable link because this site uses real people to model their products) 

Non Item Gifts

♦  a “service” 12 Days of Christmas (12 days of no dishes, 8 Spurs games my wife would watch with me, 5 thirty minute massages, etc.) 

Gifts That Give
