What do you do with the gifts your bride gives you? If you bury them in the back of a closet, to be sent to Goodwill in a few years, how do you think that makes her feel?
I’m not suggesting you fake interest in something that you don’t have any use for. However, if most of the gifts you receive from your bride seem useless, ask yourself why. Have you communicated what you like, and what you would enjoy to her? Have you really communicated it, or have you hinted? Do you, shortly before a gift-giving day, buy for yourself things that would make good gift? In other words, do you make it easy or difficult for her to give you gifts you will enjoy?
