If you’re like me and you and your other half have spent many Christmas’ together, then you already know how hair-pullingly difficult it becomes to find gifts that won’t end up in the bottom of some drawer or at the back of the closet. When I buy gifts for my husband and all the special people in my life, I want to find something that is useful to them or something I might have heard them mention in a previous conversation. I want my gift to be meaningful. Therefore, I keep a password protected gift list on my phone so I can jot down any gift ideas.
Recently, my husband and I began exchanging gift baskets at Christmas. There’s usually one large ticket gift mixed with smaller, less expensive items, some snacks, candy, and/or chocolates. For my husband, I know I can’t go wrong with electronic gifts. He’s a self-proclaimed techy nerd-boy trapped in a man’s body. For this reason, I’m always on the lookout for hot new Electronic Gifts Man Will Love.
