Dilemmas in Gender
Itís difficult to buy gifts for a member of the opposite sex because women and men are very different. Womenís extra X chromosome makes them naturally 120 percent more observant than men. I base this theory on research I did in my head in the past few minutes. But it does have some bearing. Women can remember every word of a conversation that took place six months ago (especially if it involved any woman not in the direct bloodline of her spouse). So why would such a detail-oriented person become frantic and flustered at the seemingly simple task of choosing a gift? The answer is simple- because the gift is for a man.
The problem is that men donít give clues. Although he might inadvertently tell you something he wants, chances are he will go out and buy it for himself long before his birthday. Men are very practical, and a lot of the time things they want are actually things they need. You could solve the problem by cutting up his credit cards so he canít purchase those items, but chances are he will be very confused and slightly angry. Itís a better idea to choose another gift following these tips and guidelines.
Surprise him with a gift that is chosen to suit his tastes, hobbies and desires. With this guide, you should have no problem figuring out a number of good gift options. Good luck and happy shopping!
