5 Fresh Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Husband

Not to mention my Valentine’s posts with gift ideas (here, here, and here). What else is there to suggest?

Well, here are five more Christmas gift ideas for your beloved, manly, sexy hubby! Remembering that I focus on bedroom kind of stuff. ūüėČ

1. Wet Wipes for Men.

You know what kills the mood? Body odor. And let’s face it, wives, sometimes your man stinks. (Sorry, guys. Talking truth here.) I’m not saying we wives never stink, but studies show that our female noses are more sensitive than male ones so we’re more likely to pick up on body odor, even when the issue is mild.

If your guy doesn’t time to do the whole shower thing, how about some manly wet wipes? I found a couple of brands.

2. Body groomer.

I’ve talked here about us wives “trimming the hedges,” and our Sex Chat for Christian Wives podcast also covered the subject of hair removal down there with our episode on Tending Your Garden. But what about the guys? How about a little manscaping?

You don’t necessarily want him to use the same shaving equipment on his nether regions that he uses on his face. So I did a bit of research on what experts suggest for manly groin grooming, and here’s one great option for hubbies.

3. Double hammock.

Hammocks are very popular right now. My teenage sons and their cohorts love to hang out in hammocks at the local park. But you know what’s more fun? You and your honey-bunny snuggling up together.

All that close affection outside of the bedroom certainly helps stoke the fires of romance inside the bedroom. Plus, even if it leads to nothing at all … it’s¬†cuddling with your hubby! Still good stuff. Here’s one example, but you can find a lot of choices at Amazon or your local sporting goods store.

4. Underwear.

A few years into our marriage, I piped up and gave my two cents about what kind of underwear I’d love to see my husband in. (No, I’m not giving you details.) Suffice it to say that he incorporated my opinion into what he now wears. But I also got the opportunity in that conversation to hear what was most important to him about underwear, and that was comfort.

Since then, I’m always on the lookout for men’s underwear that might be better or more comfortable. One particular brand was mentioned on the Art of Manliness podcast, and when I checked it out, I was impressed with its¬†BallPark Pouch‚ĄĘ design that keeps everything down there tucked in just so, allowing for comfort and “breathability.” Check them out.

5. Ultimate Intimacy App.

When the creators of this app contacted me for support, I did what I always do: Took my time looking through the resource to make sure it’s something I can confidently recommend to my readers. Truth is, they did a really good job with this one.

The Ultimate Intimacy App is free, but go ahead and upgrade for $6.99 to get the restricted content. The core part of this app is a game you can play with sections on Romance, Foreplay, Heavy Foreplay, and Hot & Heavy. Don’t worry — there’s nothing extreme even in the Hot & Heavy section. And as I always say, if you don’t want to do something a game suggests, skip it. This should be a physical intimacy tool to use in ways that serve¬†your marriage.

There’s also a section on Conversation Starters to increase emotional intimacy. And I must admit the creators have excellent taste in books when¬†Hot, Holy & Humorous: Sex in Marriage by God’s Design is listed among their recommended Products. (No, I didn’t ask them to plug my book. They just chose it.) Moreover, they have a section on Positions with tasteful illustrations from Christian Friendly Sex Positions to inspire you.

And there you go — five more Christmas gift ideas for your husband and your marriage bed!

Remember as you deliver the gifts that a lot is in the presentation. For instance, add a note to the groomer about what oral delight you’ll be blessing him with once he trims with it. Or take a few screen shots of the Ultimate Intimacy game, print them out, and wrap up that paper along with instructions on how to download the app as a teaser.

Let your husband know that the gift isn’t just the item itself, but the way you’ll use that item together later to nurture your physical and emotional intimacy.

What ideas do you have to share? What are your sexy and satisfying Christmas gift ideas for hubby?

5 Fresh Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Husband

A couple of weeks ago, I gave you a roundup of all of my previous gift ideas, which you can find here: A Sleigh-ful of Gift Ideas for Your Spouse. But what else have I got? Any other ideas?

As a matter of fact, I was feeling a bit tapped out last month, which prompted me to post this on Facebook:

I do a Christmas gift post every year, and I'm wondering what to do this year. I mean, really, how many sex-related gifts can I come up with us spouses to give one another? I'm just wondering how to shake things up this year. Is there a different angle you'd like to see? Any fresh thoughts on how I can address the gift-giving thing this holiday season?

And y’all gave me some great ideas! I’m going to cover them in categories (including a couple more I came up with myself).

Red background, green wrapped present, title of post

1. Romantic Messages for Your Bedroom.¬†Deuteronomy encourages us to write God’s commandments “on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates” (6:9). Because displaying important messages in front of our eyes on a daily basis practically guarantees we’ll remember their content and their importance.

Wouldn’t that also be true of your marriage? A few months ago, I finally put up wall art in our bedroom that looks like this:

"I have found the one whom my soul loves." Song of Solomon 3:4

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read that message, and how often it makes me smile. It reminds me that I believe that and¬†to believe that. How about a bedroom decor gift that celebrates your marital love or intimacy?

Gifts.com has a number of wall art options that can be personalized for a couple. Here are two of my favorites (click on the picture to find the item):

And Etsy.com features many shops that make beautiful wall art, including Song of Solomon themed options like these:

I have found the one whom my soul loves, I have found the one my soul loves, Song of Solomon Wall Decal, Song of Solomon Wall Art

EADY TO SHIP,My Beloved Is Mine And I am His,Song Of Solomon 2:16, Scripture Art,Scripture Wall Art,Wood Sign,Wedding Gift, Weddings

2. Date Nights for the Year. Just type that into the Pinterest search bar, and I bet you can find a gazillion ideas. But here’s how Hannah said it on my Facebook page:

I made a date jar for this Christmas. Hubby doesn’t like planning dates because, I’ll be honest, I can be moody and wishy washy. So I made him a date jar with different colored popsicle sticks. Each color represents how expensive that type of date would be so if we are broke he can still pick a date and “plan” it. Takes the stress off of him and gives me what I want, a date I didn’t have to plan.¬†

What a great idea, Hannah!

To help you get started, Oh Simple Joys provides a good list with DIY Date Night Jar (52 Almost Free Ideas), Freshly Married has an impressive master list of date night ideas, and The Dating Divas has a Steamy Bucket List you could make as a gift.

3. An Outside-the-Box Activity.¬†I recently listened to an interview of clinical psychologist and marriage author Dr. Les Parrott on The Art of Manliness podcast, and he mentioned an amazing finding. Remember those fluttery feelings when you were first falling in love? Some of that is fueled by the novelty of getting to know your now-spouse, and after a while, that part of the romance seems to fade. Yet you can tap into that by doing novel activities as a couple. You get that same rush of excitement and it’s paired with your beloved when you do something fresh together, whether it’s exploring a new garden or skydiving from a plane.

So how about a gift that isn’t tangible but rather an¬†experience? (Thanks to Ambrosia for this idea.) Book that weekend trip or last-minute cruise deal, buy those tickets to a game or concert, make reservations for a couples cooking class or horseback riding, schedule a tour of your local museum or winery, plan a state park visit or beach outing.

There are many creative ways to put your Date Night in a Box together. But just make sure your idea is something outside-the-box that will bring an opportunity to share new memories, engage in fresh conversation, and foster your friendship and romance.

4. A Celebration of His Manhood. Your man is different from you. Manlier. Of course. Sometimes we overlook the importance of celebrating our guy’s masculinity ‚ÄĒ his particular interests, hobbies, delights. What if your gift instead celebrated his manhood?

Here’s what Debbie said on my Facebook page:

What about gifts speaking to manly or womanly hearts? Just thinking out loud….I think by far my husbands favorite gift was the braveheart sword I got him one year…

Can you get more manly than a replica of William Wallace’s sword?

William Wallace Sword braveheart 51"

Or maybe an Indiana Jones whip.*

Now I don’t actually know what says to your particular husband,¬†I celebrate the man you are,¬†but I bet you could come up with some ideas. It could be a T-shirt with his favorite fantasy character or movie quote. It could be a crossbow and arrows with a gift certificate to an archery range. It could be tickets to an ice hockey game or a men’s worship conference. It could be the newest gadget that seems like a complete waste of time to you but that catches his eye every time you enter¬†Best Buy.

And yes, I know those ideas sound somewhat stereotypical. It’s still true for a lot of husbands, but maybe your hubby’s masculinity comes out in his cooking and he’d appreciate a chef’s hat and new utensils. Or maybe your husband’s a history buff, and a subscription to WWII History magazine would bring him great joy.

You know your husband and what he likes. Give him something he wouldn’t expect you to buy for him, but that celebrates and shows your appreciation for his manhood.

5. A Sex Schedule.¬†So this is for the wives whose husbands want sex fairly often. (I’ll address how higher-drive wives can use this information in a minute.) What if your Christmas gift to your higher-drive spouse was a 2017 calendar on which you’d marked days you committed to have sex?

Maybe your idea is to choose one day of the week and make that your guaranteed, I’m-a-sure-thing¬†promise. So you’d simply take a calendar, decorate every Thursday (or whatever) with markers, stickers, glitter, etc. and encourage him to hang it somewhere he can see it the next year.

Or maybe you want to promise banner sex once a month, one time that will be more special in some way than the other times. You could select your weekend each month and then theme it, like:

January – Exploring Positions
February – New Location
March – Strip Tease Foreplay

…and so on. You can choose what you want to include, increase his (and your) anticipation, and share the commitment to try some new things for your marriage bed this next year. I suspect this gift would make most husbands smile.

Now to the higher-drive wives … can you use an idea like this? You can, but you’d likely have to change its focus. For lower-drive spouses, this could feel like a demand, and it’s better to issue invitations and flirtations. You might gift him a calendar with a note suggesting you together¬†fill in the dates you’ve had sex throughout the year with the idea of celebrating your sexual intimacy. Sometimes tracking it will help you both see sex as a priority and help you know what’s really happening. You could give him the calendar and ask him to mark up when he would like to have sex. But remember, you don’t want this gift to become a point of contention. So if you think conflict is likely to arise, maybe skip this idea and focus on some of the other ones above that foster your relationship … which will hopefully lead to more sex.

That’s it! Five¬†fresh Christmas gift ideas for your husband.

And what have I bought for my husband? Zilch, zero, nada. (And he’s probably reading this, so I need to get busy shopping.) Let’s come up with something great for our hubbies this Christmas!

Wrap It Up for Hubby: 10 Christmas Gifts for Your Marriage Bed

Every year, I try to come up with Christmas gift ideas for hubby. I hope to suggest some less-obvious ideas, especially items that can be used to enhanced your sexual intimacy.

Here is this season’s 10 Christmas Gifts for Your Marriage Bed. Maybe you can find something to wrap up for you and your hubby!

10 Christmas Gifts for Your Marriage Bed

ADD AMBIANCE TO YOUR BEDROOM

1. Canopy. How about introducing a bed canopy? Those always look so romantic and sexy in historical bedrooms, like you two are hiding away in your own private retreat. Check out this classic canopy from Bed, Bath & Beyond:

Majesty Bed Canopy in Black

Or find something hubby might appreciate even more:

2. Light bulbs. Colored light bulbs are one of the best ways to add low lighting to your bedroom, the kind that gets you two in the mood. This is also a great way to lower the spotlight enough that you feel more comfortable baring it all for hubby. You can find them at your local hardware store or shop online. I think this one is particular pretty:

GE 25-Watt Incandescent A19 Stained Glass Light Bulb

3. Wall art. I bought a wall decal for our bedroom that we plan to put up in our bedroom (after we repaint over the holidays). I love the idea of putting positive messages and scripture on our walls, and I found a wonderful Song of Song reference through Etsy. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a message like this in your bedroom? From Eye Catching Designz.

GET THINGS GOING

4. Love Notes. How about trading love notes to spice up your romance? How about leaving one of those notes for your beloved in the shower? Yes, you can. Aqua Love Notes comes with waterproof pad and two colored pencils you can mount and use in your shower.

5. Signal. Looking for a unique way to give your lover the go-ahead for tonight? Why not use¬†the bat signal? I suspect most hubbies would love to get this signal to step up their superhero power and rock their wife’s world tonight. Cape optional. From ThinkGeek.

6. Game.¬†The Dating Divas specialize in activities and games for your marriage. For those Do It Yourself-ers, check out this fun Spin the Bottle game. This looks like something even I — craft-challenged person that I am — could make!

DRESS FOR INTIMACY

7. Socks. Did you know that people tend to climax more easily with their socks on? No, seriously. It was a surprise finding in sexual research.¬†So help your man keep his feet warm and his marriage bed hot with some personalized socks. Etsy has about gazillion options for you to choose a great pair of socks he’d enjoy and add your own romantic or sexy message. Maybe something like¬†Let’s knock socks?

Personalised Black Socks Any Text - Personalized Text In Lots of Colours - Great Birthday Present -

8. Fun undies. Given the upcoming release of the newest installment of¬†Star Wars, I thought it would be super-easy to find boxer briefs that actually said “The Force Awakens.” I mean, come on ‚ÄĒ that’s kinda funny, right? But I had no luck.

You could opt for Star Wars undies or maybe something more direct, like these fun undies he can swagger into the bedroom wearing. From Webundies.com.

9. Lingerie. I have a friend who used to work at Frederick’s of Hollywood. She explained that the same scenario was played out before and after holidays multiple times: Hubby comes in looking for lingerie for his wife, has no idea what size she is, selects something he thinks is sexy, and after the holiday wife shows up to return said lingerie with words like, “I don’t know what he was thinking.” I can shed light on that: Your husband was thinking he wanted see his wife looking sexually interested, and lingerie signals that.

So oddly enough, one of the best things many wives can get their husband is sexy lingerie for themselves. Find something that stretches your comfort zone a little, but not too much. Those of you who are worried, I promise you can find items that look suggestive without looking slutty. For example, here’s a lovely nightgown from Macy’s, in plus size. (I didn’t want to post anything more suggestive here, but you can find plenty of options.)

GIVE THE BEST GIFT

10. You.¬†Probably the best thing you could wrap up for your hubby is yourself. Make a big, beautiful bow and place it on your body. Wear it over lingerie or just by itself. And then let hubby unwrap his favorite present. Because, after all, he has been a good boy this year, hasn’t he? Instructions can be found here.

Yikes! What Do I Get My Spouse for Christmas?

Holy Jingle Bells, I looked up and whoosh! Thanksgiving had passed, and Christmas shopping had begun.

Of course, if you’re one of those who finished your holiday shopping in October, kudos to you! And the rest of us do not want to hear about it.

But if you’re like me, one of the hardest people to shop for is your spouse. I’m married to one of those men¬†who just buys what he wants instead of saving it up for a wish list. He should be on a first-name basis with the guy who delivers his Amazon packages. So when it comes to holiday season, I’m usually doing mental gymnastics worthy of an Olympic medal to come up with what to buy, wrap, and tuck under the Christmas tree for my man.

Yikes! What Do I Get My Spouse for Christmas?

Still, every year I write¬†posts with Christmas gift ideas, and this year is no exception. Next Saturday, I’ll share a list with ideas of what to buy hubby, but for the time being I wanted to remind y’all¬†of a few previous posts that might help.
