The problem is men in particular usually don’t know where to start with holiday shopping. Get your friend or sister to buzz your boyfriend or husband and set the bar – “Just checking in! How’s your shopping going? Because I know you have some GREAT presents coming your way!”
5. Accidentally-on-purpose e-mail your wish list across
Send a detailed edit of all all your favorite gifts, for example in a spreadsheet, to your other half with Subject Line: My Christmas List 2016.
In the body of the e-mail, make out like it was meant for someone else and then around five minutes after sending it, send another nonchalant e-mail: “Sorry honey totally meant to send that to Mom… So work’s crazy today, how are you?”
Sometimes you just have to spell it out.
