Gifts for Building a Relationship

Every marriage experiences spouses buying gifts for one another.  Most of the time the gifts are for what are considered to be ‘mandatory’ gift giving days like birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and so on.  Sometimes spouses use gifts as gestures to say that they are sorry or to earn forgiveness.  These aren’t gifts at all- they are bribes and they don’t serve any purpose other than to be a Band Aid to wounds that require proper attention to heal. 


The best gifts given in any relationship are gifts that have only one intention and that intention is to let your spouse know that you are thinking of them, appreciate them and love them.  These gifts are given without ulterior motives or expectations.  These gifts only work when they are chosen with a great deal of thought, care and without anticipating anything in return. 


Begin by shopping all of the time.  This doesn’t mean that you should just load up your shopping basket each time you head out.  This doesn’t require much effort and you will most likely go broke doing this!  Instead, each time you are in a store with or without your spouse, keep an eye out for items you think he or she would love to have or find touching.  Pay attention when you are together either window shopping or looking for specific items.  If he or she finds something that they have an interest in, either purchase it when they aren’t close by or come back later and buy it for them.
