This month’s Ask Coach Kathy question is about how to give gifts that are meaningful to your spouse on Mother’s Day.
Each year I give my wife flowers or a plant for Mother’s Day, but I can tell she isn’t that excited about the gift. What am I doing wrong?
Although, flowers or a plant is a lovely gift, I’m wondering if you may be showing love to your wife in a language that’s not speaking to her. Instead of, or in combination with, try loving your wife with a different love language. Maybe she would enjoy quality time with you – an outing of some kind. Or perhaps she would feel loved if you buy a flat of flowers and plant the flowers for her. Could it be that she craves a big hug if she hasn’t received one in awhile? Writing her a letter with a list of concrete examples as to why she is a fabulous mom to your children is another option.
Once you hit on the way she feels loved most, you’ll hit gold!
