It’s great if you’re a loving husband who showers his wife with gifts on her birthday and wedding anniversary. But there’s another important day that you can’t afford to forget. It’s Wife Appreciation Day on September 18th and the same old gift ideas are not going to work! Here’s a guide to give your wife a gift she’ll appreciate for a long, long time, earning you some brownie points along the way:

Whisk her away on an exotic holiday 

The foundation of every relationship is mutual respect, understanding and love. But that’s not enough- you also need to have fun, and explore the world together. 

If you want to show your wife how much you really value her contribution to the family, give her the break she needs and whisk her away to an exotic location on a special holiday for just the two of you. Your wife deserves some time away from her job and other daily chores so, get your passports in order and get some quality time together.

If you’re willing to be a little extravagant without leaving the coast, light up the night sky with fireworks or take her for a helicopter ride over the city.

Join her for a spa session 

Pamper your wife by treating her to a luxury spa day or spa retreat. There are some great packages for couples that you can make use of. A spa treatment will rejuvenate your wife and will help her feel relaxed. It’ll also be a great opportunity for you to inhale some nice aromas and feel intoxicated, if you’re into that sort of stuff.

Get Fit! 

It’s important to stay healthy to lead a happy life. It’s your wife’s special day so why not give her and yourself a healthy life with a fitness band or activity tracker? There are several fitness trackers available in the market today including Fitbit, Yu Fit, and many more. Bonus: Fitness trackers come in a various cool colours! But do keep in mind that if your wife likes to run/exercise alone, don’t force her to change her schedule just so you can see your gift in action!

Invest in a short-term instrument to help her buy that bag she’s always wanted 

You’ve noticed your wife has been eyeing that beautiful diamond ring forever- or maybe a really expensive clothing item that she wants to add to her wardrobe. Why not invest in a short-term investment instrument to buy her that? 

Savings bank accounts may be your first option, but consider other short-term investment options designed to give you good returns in a short period of time. You can look into short term debt mutual funds; for starters, since they are the modern, more profitable version of bank fixed deposits.  

Plan for retirement now 

Retirement is inevitable and something everybody should plan for regardless of their age. Mutual funds are a great investment option for that. Consider Equity Linked Savings Schemes or ELSS mutual funds, which invest in equity and gives you amazing tax benefits. 

Securing happy, comfortable retirement is one of the best gifts you can give your wife. Since your retirement is far, far away in the future, you can have an aggressive portfolio with around 90% of your funds invested into equities. 

Love your wife, show her how much she means to you, and let her feel special this Wife Appreciation Day!
