What is the budget & price for a sophisticated birthday gift for my wife?


The first thing to consider when choosing a gift is the budget and market price. Choose a budget that fits your own financial situation.

According to a survey of 500 men and women in their 20s and 30s who have a partner or spouse, the average budget for a birthday gift was 17,087 yen for the giver and 15,613 yen for the receiver.

The most common price was in the 10,000 yen range. This was followed by 5-6,000 yen, 30,000-40,000 yen, 20,000-30,000 yen, less than 5,000 yen, and more than 40,000 yen.

However, since this includes partners, the actual amount is expected to be a little higher. Using these results as a guide, let's look for the best gift at a price that is reasonable for you.

How to choose a tasteful birthday gift for your wife


To choose a birthday gift that your wife will really enjoy, you need to keep a few things in mind.

This is a different relationship from that of friends or parents, so be sure to choose a birthday gift with your wife in mind.

Choose by checking what she wants based on her usual words and actions

First of all, it is a good idea to take note of what your wife says and does shortly before choosing a birthday gift, so that you don't miss anything.

For example, when you go shopping, you should remember her small comments such as, "This is cute," or "This would be useful if we had something like this".

Also, carefully observe whether her shoes are tired, her purse is old, or she always wears the same bag or clothes.

If you receive a gift of something you are in need of or something you have been wanting, even if you don't say it out loud, she will feel more that "you remembered that I had said I wanted it" or "you were thinking about me so much".

Choose a gift with the image of giving it to an independent woman, not a wife or mother

When you get married and have a spouse or become a parent, your life changes drastically from when you were single. Sometimes you may have to endure many things you want to do as a single woman, such as work, housework, and childcare, which leave no time for yourself.

That is why I recommend that you think about your annual birthday gift while thinking about your partner as an independent woman, not as a wife or mother.

It is also good to imagine what you were able to do when you were single, and what you are no longer able to do after marriage and childbirth, and give that as a gift.

If she used to love makeup and beauty, but hasn't been able to devote the time to it, you could give her something that fulfills that need.

They will surely be delighted to feel as if they have regained a sense of self that they had almost forgotten.

Choose a gift that will uplift your daily life

In our busy lives, we tend to forget to take time to relax. If you are so busy that you don't have time for that, give an item that will help you relax your body and mind, even if it is just for a moment!

For example, people spend 1/3 of their lives sleeping. People move their bodies even when they are asleep, so creating a more comfortable sleeping environment will increase the efficiency of their daytime activities.

If your wife is having trouble sleeping or wants a relaxing time, how about an item that will help her get a good night's sleep or a fragrance that will relax her mind?

If you start by getting to know your wife's daily life and feelings, you should be able to come up with a gift that you think she will appreciate.

Great Birthday Gifts for Wives by Age


Next, we will explain what kind of birthday gift is most likely to be appreciated by each of the wife's age groups.

Birthday presents for wives in their 20s

When giving a birthday gift to a wife in her 20s, try to choose a gift that expresses your wish for her to "be herself".

Often, people in their 20s, who have probably been married for only a few years, are not used to balancing their own time with family time.

Therefore, give accessories, clothes, or small items that are in the style that your wife has always liked to show her that it is okay to be herself.

If you are unsure of what to give, imagine what shades of clothes she usually wears and what designs she likes.

In the case of clothing, you can avoid mistakes by going shopping together or choosing together.

Birthday Gifts for Wives in Their 30s

The 30s is a time when work becomes busier. Many people will be happy to feel a renewed sense of kindness, attentiveness, and a sense that their husbands are looking out for them.

For this reason, we recommend that you remember to give her a gift that she briefly mentioned she wanted, or that you noticed an item that was out of date and gave her a new one, items that show that you are looking out for and thinking of your wife even in the midst of your busy days.

It is also important to choose a quality item that is appropriate for a special day rather than a cheap gift.

Useful items that can be used around the house or gifts with an unusual and special feel will also be appreciated, but at this time you must remember to cater to your wife's tastes.

Birthday gifts for wives in their 40s

When giving gifts to wives in their 40s, quality, practical, and relaxing items are popular.

In their 40s, more and more people are concerned about quality. Therefore, give a gift of good quality without being particular about trends or brand names.

For healing goods that relieve physical fatigue, we recommend bath oils that can be used daily or high-quality bedding. They will be sincerely pleased just to have the opportunity to incorporate time for self-improvement into their lives.

Even if you choose accessories or daily necessities, try to avoid cheap items and choose high-quality ones.

Ideas for hot to give a birthday gift to your wife


Once you have chosen the perfect birthday gift, give it to the person in the best possible situation while planning the situation.

You can make your birthday memorable by multiplying the emotion and special feeling many times over.

Give a letter together

If you are going to give a birthday gift, be sure to give it along with a loving letter.

Thank your wife for all her hard work, tell her what you admire and like about her, and end with your best wishes for the future.

Give it along with a bouquet of flowers

Along with the birthday gift, you should definitely prepare a bouquet of flowers. You only get a chance to receive a bouquet of flowers on special occasions, so it would be great to receive one!

They will be happy to know that you thought and worried about buying them for them, and that you were trying to please them, and they will feel your love for them.

A bouquet in your partner's favorite color or with his or her favorite flowers will surely please him or her.

Give them at a romantic restaurant

This is a classic situation, but a restaurant with a romantic atmosphere that you would not normally go to is a good place to give a gift.

Giving the gift after filling your stomach with a delicious meal will be a surprise.

Just by creating an extraordinary atmosphere, you can turn your birthday into a more special day.

Decorate the room and celebrate big!  

For wives who don't like formal occasions, try decorating the room at home to the best of your ability. If you're not comfortable doing it yourself, you could do it with your kids or your wife's friends.

For those who have difficulty decorating because of work, we recommend balloon delivery. They deliver a large surprise balloon and when you get home, simply set it in the middle of the room. Choose a product such as a small balloon that will pop out from inside when you ask your wife to break it when she gets home.

It will take a little more effort to make the day special, but I am sure it will all blow over when you see the smile on your wife's face.

Give a gift the moment the date changes

It is also a good idea to give a gift the moment the birthday date changes. The key here is to act as if you forgot about the birthday until just before.

The key here is to act as if you forgot about the birthday until just before. If you give them a present, a bouquet of flowers, and a letter at the exact moment the date changes, they will be twice as surprised and happy.

However, don't act like you've forgotten too much or you'll disappoint the other person.
