Valentine’s Day comes only once every year, but many husbands still spend more time thinking about what to buy their wife than seeing what the best Valentine’s Day present for her would be. What would be the best Valentine’s Day gift you ask?
Let’s begin with what your stay-at-home wife and mother does all day long. She takes care of the kids, washes clothes, puts clothes away, washes the dishes, sweeps the floor, cleans the toilet and shower, and well, the list goes on and on. Of course, if she is like most stay-at-home moms nowadays, she probably even does a small home based business of some sort.
After talking with dozens of stay-at-home moms, I have found that many of them are into crafts. Whether they sew, do wood working, make candles, make jewelry, paint, or make other crafts, she is probably wishing she had more supplies or the newest gadget to help her in her crafting. So, the first part of the best Valentine’s Day present would be to either purchase the items you know she is longing for or give her a gift certificate to her favorite craft store.
Best Valentine’s Day Present
For most men, shopping in a craft store for hours is not their idea of a great time. So, instead of going with her while she shops, take the opportunity to clean the house for her. Yes, this would be the best Valentine’s Day present ever. As moms, we find the endless list of household chores tiresome. Many stay-at-home moms will tell you if you ask that the best thing a husband could do would be to clean the house. Truth be told, we really don’t think it will ever happen. That is why it would be a huge and excellent surprise.
If you’d like to keep a little romance in your life, you could also cook a small dinner or lunch and add a single rose. If you can’t cook, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich will do just fine. We as moms don’t expect a lot or even want a lot. We prefer the simpler things in life, and knowing our husbands love us enough to clean the house and listen to the things we want is more of a gift than they could ever buy.
