Our expert says:
I think there's a difference between someone who resists the entirely commercial promotions that insist you must buy something over-valued for your wife because the stores need to boost their February Sales in the name of Valentine's Day, and a guy who's too mean to ever, more spontaneously, give gifts or treats to his wife as a token of his love. Mind you, I think women should do the same for their man.
And whatever the date, he should take you out to dinner occasioanly. And Birthdays and wedding anniversaries are personal specials, not concocted by the stores.
Have you tried giving HIM shirts the wrong size ? Or gifts you will enjoy, but not to his taste ? To provide opportunities to discuss your concerns, when he has felt what its like ? Maybe just dont get gifts for him at all, and when he mentions this, say "I've been meaning to discus this with you - what do you think is the best way for us both to give each other gifts we each really want, and without falling for that commercial nonsense at the shops ? "
But also, couldn't you be more pro-active in a pleasant way ? " That's a nice shirt, but I think you've forgotten what my correct size is." Where shall we go for dinner on our anniversary next week ?"
