Amidst the onslaught of commercials, window displays and retail catalogs during the holiday season, men are bombarded with the unspoken message: “you’d better get her the perfect gift this Christmas.”
The pressure mounts, December 25th looms and many men get stressed. But they get stressed because they really do want to make the women in their lives happy, right?
So, what do women most want this Christmas?
Jewelry? Perfume? Chocolates? Clothing? Nope. Not that these are bad things, but it may surprise and encourage you to learn that the number one thing the woman in your life most wants from you this Christmas is something you don’t need to wait in lines (or even go online) to get.
It’s your time. (And, of course, not just for Christmas, but for always.)
Quality Time is one of Dr. Gary Chapman’s Five Love Languages and for many women your time can be the key that ignites in her the desire to give you what you most need: respect, appreciation, and support.
Do you want some new tools – some new “gift-giving ideas” – to ignite renewed love and passion in your relationship? Whether you’ve been married for years and need a tune-up, or you’re a young guy looking to move into a relationship with a great toolkit, I hope you’ll consider joining me at Higher Ground Men’s Conference this February. I’ll be doing two special workshops specifically designed to strengthen and enhance your relationship:
I’ve presented these workshops a few times in the past years through my work with Stronger Families. I’ve heard from countless couples about how the tools and encouragement provided in these workshops have turned around a challenging marriage and made a good marriage even greater!
Guys, I encourage you to think about how you can ‘wrap up a gift of your time’ for the woman in your life this Christmas:
- A pre-arranged weekend away
- A coupon book for pre-scheduled date nights*
- A pre-scheduled day together on your 2016 calendar (wine tasting, a day hike around Mt. Rainier, walk around the Seattle waterfront – it’s all free!)
Remember, you’ve already got what she wants most. It’s why she chose you in the first place.
