Guys, listen up. Here’s what women really want for Christmas. Christmas seems to be the season of threes, so let’s stick with that theme and point out the three essential M’s:
Maid. Whether you hire a pro, hire your kid, or whip up a little lover’s coupon on the computer, nothing says, “I love ya, baby” like taking over her “other” job for a while. There’s a reason Brawny paper towels have a sexy lumberjack as their icon; it’s every woman’s fantasy. Note to the clueless: Do not cheap out and assume that a shiny new vaccuum cleaner has the same emotional value. It’s the fact that someone else doing the work that has real appeal.
Massage. I have yet to make a galpal who doesn’t enjoy a massage. The best massage is away from home in a classy spa with dim lights and soft music. But even the frugal can recreate the experience at home. Packaging the DIY version is easy. Purchase a book on couples massage from Amazon, add a yummy candle and massage oil, and include a love note offering your services.
Merlot. If you prefer white wines, then a moscato works just as well. Packaging this one is even easier, by pairing the best bottle with your favorite BYOB and a meal she does not have to cook.
But the best gift would be a three pack. Consider the appeal of a freshly cleaned house, a massage at her favorite spa, and a bottle of her favorite wine accompanied by a romantic dinner from your special resaurant. I would be just as happy to receive the DIY version of this gift, too.
Notice that this gift suggestion is brought to you entirely clutter-free. Ladies, who wants to shout out about this as the perfect gift trifecta?
