"They" say one of the easiest ways to make an active commitment to your spouse is through gifts. Honestly, what do they know, right? Well, let's not throw this baby out with the bath water.
We have to admit that there are some who find value in receiving gifts in relationships, so we cannot dismiss what is important to our loved one. We want to maintain a redemptive atmosphere in our relationships, remember? So that means no judgment. In fact, committing to this act is not as hard as it seems. Start your own tradition of gift giving in your relationship.
Something that we created in our marriage is #DirtWars. When the kids used to try to catch me in the act of surprising them, they would ask, "What are you doing" or "What are you up to, mom"? My answer? "Dirt!" Believe it or not I brought that idea into our marriage. It's code for "I'm up to something 'good' for YOU but it's a surprise"! Sometimes it's a favorite treat that magically appears in nightstands, a note strategically placed in the driver's seat of the car, or destination treasure hunt. Who knows! But the results are fun, easily reciprocated, and most of all... you can keep track so you that you can stay on track with your giving. :D
