Ahh, the magic of the holidays. The happiness (and insanity) that happens when families get together… the look on a child’s face while tearing apart wrapping paper.
And, one of my favorite parts, the fake reaction you give your spouse when you open a clothing box and it’s something that you would NEVER wear.
“Oh, um, honey, I, uh, love it!”
Granted, this goes both ways. 10 years ago I bought my wife a pair of shoes that she has worn TWICE. She won’t give them away or chuck them because of their “sentimental” value, but what was I thinking? Clothing is so incredibly personal. What’s more, most of us would rather grin and wear it than disappoint our loved ones.
So, lets get it all out on the table. Ladies, here is some shopping advice from the husbands who absolutely adore you, but haven’t had the courage to say, “you really want me to wear THAT?”
