What She Really Wants for Christmas!

10 Dec

Like clockwork this time every year, guy friends check in for trendy gift ideas for their loves.  First, I remind them of the Priceless Wish List before asking if they’re in the doghouse — just so I know if I have to refer to the damage control list.  Second, I ask them to think back to what she’s mentioned during the year.  We do notice and love when you remember our needs and desires, even if we don’t want it anymore, we’ll want it all over again just because you remembered.

Now I’m going to keep this simple, because well, let’s be honest …men are pretty simple creatures.  And I mean that in a really nice way.  I’m the first to agree, simple works.

Ladies, if I missed anything…help out!

DISCLAIMER – nothing on these lists work if you’ve been naughty — which is not nice.  You know who you are. 🙂 For those of you, go directly to a jeweler or new car lot.  Good luck.
