Every holiday season, I have the same thought, “what should I ask my husband to get me for Christmas?”
Words of affirmation are my
love language, but gifts are his.
He doesn’t just like to receive, he loves to give, too!
I’ve learned to love receiving gifts, thanks to him.
That still doesn’t stop me from having to dig deep to figure out what presents to request!
Weighted blankets are EVERYTHING you need in the winter, y'all. You'll never ask for another thing.
Trust me on this one... fanny packs. I know, but y'all, these sturdy canvas bags are super cute and practical!
No, it's not the big name bike, but this affordable bike has great reviews and is another option!
This sleek portable blender is the perfect gift to encourage you in your healthy lifestyle. You can blend up nutritious drinks anywhere!
Sure, it's a little excessive, but if your love of iced coffee is extra like mine, this is a fun and affordable gift to request.
I've been into cozy, casual, functional style lately, and these clogs are the perfect gift! They're made with premium Portuguese cork and durable leather, have an adjustable buckle, and look so cute with jeans or joggers.
Look, I'm a real book gal, too, but this Kindle is on my Christmas list this year. I read so much that the big, bright screen and crisp text, really appeal to me! If you're a bookworm, ask for this, for sure!
Active noise-canceling headphones are everything you need to find peace in a noisy world. Their smart technology lets you hear what you want and tune out what you don't, so you can relax in any environment. You'll never want to take them off!
Oh my goodness, these retro sneaks are super comfy, and perfect to add to a capsule wardrobe because they're so versatile.
A monthly subscription for massages. It's really a thing, and if your husband insists on giving you a gift, it might as well be this!
Take your bed chill sessions to the next level. This isn't something you'd buy for yourself, but isn't it something you'd love to have?
I've been working hard to untether myself from my phone. This sweet, dainty watch looks good and takes away my excuse to pull out my cell to check the time.

A couple of things to remember
Remember, if you don’t want to receive presents, it’s okay to be clear and say that.
You aren’t obligated to accept gifts if you don’t want them.
The other thing to remember is that when he asks you what you want—tell him what you want!
Don’t worry about what’s in his wallet, or try to make things easy for him.
He wouldn’t ask if he didn’t want to know, and hopefully, you’re both on the same page about budget and expectations.
