Its all about Giving There’s about four shopping days left until Christmas, so it’s almost time to start thinking about sorting out a gift for the missus. Its strange how stressed out guys get about making this purchase. I mean to know exactly what she wants all you have to do is listen to her during the year. Obviously that’s not practical so instead here is my guide to buying the perfect gift for your other half.

1 Spa Treatment

For me the mark of a good present is that you can actually benefit from it yourself. We all know that ladies love a day at the spa, but lads need to give it a go too. Seriously it’s amazing, this year I have visited a number of Spa’s around the country and I’ve loved every second. They are so relaxing and refreshing, honestly great for the body and mind.

2 Night Classes

I’m all about self improvement these days, being the best version of yourself and all that jazz. I feel that a huge percentage of the population are not making the most of their time especially mid week. Netflix and chill is all the rage at the moment but most Irish women have been all about Pj’s and Soaps for years. Most towns have some kind of night classes running, be it learning a new language, photography lessons or perhaps trying a new craft.

The benefits of upskilling are countless, plus if you plan it well she’ll be out of the house for mid week allowing you to enjoy the Champions League in peace.

3 Make Up Tutorial

Apparently women wear make up for themselves, yeah right. Anyway you can’t argue with the fact that flawless makeup makes a lady look and feel more beautiful. Based on that fact, a good pallet and some decent brushes will be appreciated, however tickets to see one of the numerous superstar make up artists around the country is the job. These women deserve the “artist” bit in their title, the tips and tricks that professionals have can turn your missus from grand to great.

She’ll look and feel better and you have a hotter other half.

4 Gym Memberships

There’s no easy way to tell her to put down the mince pie. The relationship stone is a scientific fact, like earthquakes and stupid people liking reality tv. This gift requires a great deal of tact, make out that its something that you can do together or dangle the sun holiday carrot in front of her. Classes like spinning or kettlebells could be the safe bet to begin but once she starts going and sees and feel the befits hopefully she’ll be addicted.

5 Sex Toy

Fifty Shades of Grey may have been one of the biggest film flops of 2015 but one thing it did was stimulated a lot of open conversations about sex. Given the popularity in experimentation bedrooms across the country why not treat her to an adult toy. Remember its sex with someone you love. Apart form a bit of fun the endorphins released help to relieve headaches, stress, lower pain, burns calories and even helps you go to sleep.

If you do buy her a Rabbit or any variation of the original selfie stick do me a favour and please hand it to her with a smile and say lovingly “now you can go fuck yourself”

Merry Christmas and lots of love from the Galway Player
