Dan Bailey is the President of WikiLawn.
“My wife enjoys flexing her creative muscles, so I like to give her gifts that help her do that. She tries new things all the time and I always try to be supportive. One year I got her a calligraphy set. The next year a set of oil paints and some canvases. The following year a decent video camera. She uses all of these things and some hobbies stick. Even when they don’t, it doesn’t feel like a waste. It makes her happy, and that’s all that matters.
I like these kinds of gifts though because it allows her to express herself and create something new. If I give her a gift that’s enjoyable one time, she’ll like it, but that’s the end of the enjoyment. If she takes up painting, then she’s able to enjoy the whole process of it.”
Lisa Arlington is the Founder of Giftsnerd.
“Here are some unique gift ideas for your wife:
If you love buying beauty products for her to keep her ever young, then this subscription box would be a smart idea. The box has different beauty products that she might love to use or will love if she has not heard about them before. The FabFitFun subscription box has makeup, home items, skincare, and much more. It is available for $50.
Your wife looks beautiful when she curls, straighten or blow-dry her hair to look fresh and elegant all the time. You know she is a beauty freak and loves to buy the beauty appliances but does not have a place to keep them safe. Well, you can buy them the haircare holder where she can place her curler and straightener safely. It is available for $45.
If your wife loves music, this mini speaker would be the best gift for her. The speaker is portable and can be taken anywhere. Whether she is working in the kitchen or traveling around the globe, this mini speaker will keep her in a good mood. It is available for $30.”
Jacob Pinkham is the founder and CEO of In Smooth Waters, the number one source for water sports reviews and water safety tips. I’m happily married with one beautiful daughter and two dogs.
“I love gifting my wife everlasting roses because they feel more special and unique than normal flowers.
Everlasting or infinity roses are real roses that last for up to a year without any water. My wife loves to use flowers as decorations around the house and so everlasting roses are
perfect for that. She likes to use the everlasting rose bouquets I get her as table centerpieces or as a nice pop of color on the mantle. I love that I can help make my wife feel a little more special by gifting her flowers that last much longer than your normal bouquet of roses.”
Sturgeon Christie is an auto industry expert and the CEO of Second Skin Audio.
“I love to give my wife gifts that are actually experiences she’ll remember forever. I know my wife loves her friends and so I like to surprise her by gifting her with a girl’s night out or a girl’s spa day. I’ll make a dinner reservation at a fancy restaurant for my wife and her friends and make sure they have my card information on file so that payment is all taken care of. My wife has always seemed to love when I’ve gifted her with special experiences she can have with her friends and so I suggest other husbands give it a try! A pro tip is to plan special surprises for your wife and her friends throughout the day while they are enjoying the experience you helped set up, such as sending over a bottle of champagne or a special dessert.”
Chris Tag is the owner of Pompeii3, an independent, family-owned and operated designer of fine diamond jewelry and retailer for over nine decades. He is constantly following market trends to ensure his company offers its customers the best pieces.
“Your wife’s jewelry should be as one-of-a-kind as she is! A unique, customized pair of stud earrings is the perfect gift idea because it will complement the rest of her jewelry collection. Choosing the stone, size, setting, and style will show her that you took the time to create a fine pair of earrings perfectly suited to her. If your wife loves the glitz and glam, then the choices are limitless – from large pendant necklaces to bold ruby rings, you can give her the gift of making a statement and turning heads wherever she goes. If her style is not flashy, then there are a variety of minimalist, subtle options to choose from. Consider single-stone rings or a simple tennis bracelet, if that’s the case.”
Amy McWaters is the CEO at Gifts Australia.
“This is truly an opportunity to spoil your special lady, and luxury doesn’t have to come at a price! A beautiful piece of chocolate, a bottle of luxe nail polish, or a few nice sheet masks won’t break the budget.
If you’re at a loss for what to buy your wife, a gift hamper is a great way to cover all your bases and get a bit of everything. Sometimes they are even themed, such as a spa set or a gourmet foodie hamper, whatever your wife would like best there is likely a hamper for her interests!
Something sentimental will show her you really care, and doesn’t have to make sense to anyone but you as a couple. Maybe find a bottle of wine from the year you were married, or buy her some jewelry that will match her wedding ring. Go old school and make her a mixtape (or at least a playlist) of significant songs from your relationship history.”
Jason is a Senior Account Executive for The Content Factory where he manages public relations and social media for various purpose-driven, ethical and creative organizations.

“My wife appreciates a clean house, so to cut the clutter, I seek out consumable gifts. I find experiences she’ll enjoy but would never buy for herself, such as a painting class or a subscription to Medium. Artisanal foods and drinks are also perfect; we don’t want physical stuff that’ll eventually get junked, or worse, end up stashed forever in the spare bedroom.
I’ve given many consumable gifts to my wife, and all have gone over well. I think it’s because I pay attention over the year, looking for ideas to something she’s happy with, then I note it on a list, to pick and chose the best option when gift-time comes around.”
Ajmal Dar is the Founder of Moccasin Guru.
“Usually, I would give a spa day with lots of treatments and relaxation but with COVID-19 still being an issue, this would be definitely off the table. The best gift would be an at-home spa day with a basket of treatments and products from Dermatalogica, and a delicious lunch with a bottle of prosecco.”

Jamie’s travels have taken her across the world as she has learned to synthesize the best of Western and Eastern medicine to the benefit of her patients.
“Most wives love nothing more than a surprise getaway, trip or vacation to celebrate their birthday. While jewelry is nice, an overnight trip or vacation to a relaxing and fun location can help you and your wife reconnect on a personal level, making it an ideal birthday
surprise. The ‘surprise’ element of the trip makes it all the more exciting, and on the trip you can form new memories that will last a lifetime!”
Albert Lee is the Founder of Home Living Lab.
“While flowers are beautiful and timeless, they don’t last very long! Therefore, I usually turn to succulents if I am looking for a gift for my wife. A bouquet will die within a few days, maybe a week if you’re lucky. There’s no avoiding it. But, a succulent arrangement can last months with minimal care. I also find that succulents have so much more variety and diversity compared to flower bouquets. A succulent arrangement when done properly can look vibrant, lively, spirited and strong all at the same time. It is the perfect way to appreciate my wife for her strength and steadfastness in our lives. FYI, In the language of flowers, succulents symbolize enduring and timeless love!”

“My wife is a big tea drinker and loves the tea selection from Big Heart Tea Co. They’re a female-run tea brand that features botanical-rich, organic, and ethically-sourced teas that are hand-blended in small batches.
For Valentine’s Day this year, I got her the Cup of Love. It’s a mild, nurturing, naturally sweet rose tea, which is calming and smells like I’m literally in a garden surrounded by rose bushes.”
Irreverent Gent founder Dave Bowden is a men’s style specialist, an Amazon bestselling author, an unrepentant introvert, a (patient, if long-suffering) Toronto sports fan and the husband of a wonderful (and fortunately much more patient) wife.
“The best idea when giving your wife is a gift is to pair something nice – like flowers or a fruit arrangement – with something personal. For instance, for my first wedding anniversary, I gave my wife a clock because timepieces are the standard first anniversary gift. But I paired it with a collage of wedding photos and a print out of our wedding vows, which made the whole gift resonate a lot more strongly.
The best thing about this strategy is that you don’t have to spend a lot of extra money to help your edible arrangement or other gift make an even stronger impact. Print out one of her favorite poems, or a quote from one of her favorite authors, and frame it in a nice frame she can keep on her desk. Or do the same with a keepsake from your relationship, like ticket stubs from a special concert.
Pairing these small but thoughtful and personal gestures with a nice arrangement turns a good gift into a great one.”
David De Haan
After spending most of his life on or near the water rafting, fishing, and sailing, David started the website Stand Up Paddle Boards Review, where he helps beginning paddle boarders with tips and advice.
“Every time, I try to get my wife a thoughtful gift that she will actually love and enjoy. Here are some of my favorite gift ideas.
A standup paddle board. We are a family of watersports enthusiasts.
Paddleboarding is one of those things that we love to do alone and as a family. I recently got my wife the Atoll Aquamarine SUP. She can’t seem to get enough. Since she received it, she is always asking me and the kids to go paddleboarding. It is also a way for her to take a break and enjoy some time alone in nature.
The other idea would be personalized jewelry.
A good piece of jewelry is irresistible for most people. But it is even more special if it is
personalized. It could be a bracelet with both our initials or a locket with photos of our kids.
My last favorite gift idea is perfume. This is easier when you already know what she likes. It is a thoughtful gift that I know she will be grateful for.”
Rhodes Kristie is the Founder of Tekli.co. He is an avid pen enthusiast and outdoorsman. When he’s not seeking out the next adventure, you can often find Rhodes in a local coffee shop working at growing his small business.
“Nothing gets the juices flowing like putting a pen to paper. You wake up on a Saturday morning to a fresh pot of coffee and a day free from obligations. Picking up your favorite fountain pen and ink you settle into your morning nook and begin to write and doodle about the week prior as your stress begins to melt away.
In a world of screens and constant stimuli give your wife the gift of stress-free creative flow with an Esterbrook Estie. With its tortoise patterned lacquer body and elegant chrome-plated trim, she won’t want to put this pen down.”
Tiffany DaSilva is the Founder of Flowjo.co.
“Looking for a unique anniversary gift? Want to bring the focus back to romance in your relationship?

No phones, no streaming services, just the two of you reconnecting and giggling ‘til your sides hurt. Plus, keep track of everything you try with the do, doing, and done folders right inside the box.”
Simonas Steponaitis is a Marketing Manager at Hosting Wiki.
“Recently, we celebrated my wife’s birthday and I gave her one cool gadget as a birthday gift: Lovebox Spinning Heart Messenger. While I’m sure you write to your wife on a daily basis, text can only do a lot. If you’re looking for a way to tell her how much you care, look no further than Lovebox Spinning Heart Messenger. When you send a message through an easy-to-use app, the heart on the beech tree box starts spinning, alerting the recipient of a new message. When they open the box, they will see your message on the screen. They appear well built and sturdy. All three came out of the box, worked well. They were easy to set up and easy to use.”

He also works as a record producer, producing and recording in his studio Brazilian artists. He has a Master’s Degree in music education whose research deals with the application of the musical Brazilian Choro music in teaching electric bass.
“My favorite gift was also the simplest I got for my wife. It was a notebook and one white rose for our 9th wedding anniversary. The notebook had our names on the cover, and inside 365 simple phrases I wrote every day for a year, usually, something that she did that was admirable or how pretty she looked. After years married, it was a great way to show my wife how much she matters to me through time and how much I love every little thing she does. The best gifts come from the heart.”
Dave Pedley runs a parenting blog called Your Cub – a site dedicated to all things family, parenting, and kids.
“I love giving gifts to my wife and depending on the season or what she needs, that will change accordingly. One of my favorite things to present her with, though, is a package at our local spa. Nothing says relaxation like a good massage and pedicure, for example. There are very few women that would turn this down!”
Hannah Derleth is a Marketing Coordinator at Piano in a Flash.
“A subscription to Piano in a Flash would be a great gift for any adult interested in music and learning an instrument, but never got a chance to try when they were young, or stopped lessons years and years ago and simply want to refresh their memory. Almost all of the songs we include in our lessons are songs that adults will recognize— we want to make sure they’re playing songs they know and enjoy, and not just struggle to learn how to play!”
Dwight Zahringer is the President of Pure Cabo LLC.
“One of my all-time favorite gift ideas combines animals, the outdoors, and an out-of-the-box date idea: horseback riding sessions.
Horseback riding is a really unique idea that doubles as a date for you and your partner. Plus, there’s tons of options to book. You can search for any of the following in your area, then pick the arrangement that fits your wife’s interests:
- Trail horseback rides
- Beach horseback rides
- Private riding trails
- A full or half-day session at a ranch, including rides, horse feeding, grooming, and more related activities.
