I asked several brothers to list the top three things they would like to receive as a gift from their wife..
These are the top ten answers:
#10 – A sentimental, thoughtful token. Something personal. (Isn’t it sad that this is at the bottom of their list and probably at the top of ours!)
#9 – What I like to call ‘Boy Stuff’. (Sporting equipment, gardening equipment, grills, power tools…you get the idea)
#8 – Something pleasing to Allah (Yes, they really put this! I should tell my husband this is enough to make some husbands happy)
#7 – Islamic lectures/CD’s/Books
#6 – Food! (They want us to make them food…specifically something sweet)
#5 – The old classic, “Dinner and a movie”
#4 – Sports Stuff (tickets, memorabilia, etc)
#3 – Personal Items (clothes, accessories like a watch, belt, cologne)
#2 – A surprise trip (a weekend getaway somewhere)
#1 – Techie Stuff – (Ipad’s/Iphone’s/DVD’s/Flat screens etc etc)
**BTW the top two answers were overwhelmingly the top two!
