The Surprising #1 Gift He Really Wants

The Gift Men Really Want

Surprising Survey Results – #1 Gift Men Really Want

You might be surprised to learn what the Dating concluded was the #1 gift men really want.   They asked hundreds of their male customers what they really wanted as a gift for Valentine’s Day.  As a man, I believe it’s the same answer for any major gift-giving holiday; Father’s Day, Anniversaries, the Holidays and even Birthdays.  And no – It’s not what you’re thinking!

In their article, they broke it down to the Top 3 gifts men wanted and found that:

The #1 thing men wanted most as a gift was Quality Time with their partner.

The men’s comments further explained that they really appreciate when their partner put some thought into planning their time together.  Less surprising, of course, was #2, which was Intimacy and #3 was Food.   Well, we are men after all!

Supporting Survey Results

A study that directly supports the Dating Divas’ survey results is a 2016 Wakefield Research Survey of over 1000 U.S. adults sponsored by Sparefoot, which found that:

81% of Americans would rather receive experience-based gifts than physical gifts.

 Making Memorable Moments Together

To further prove the point, can you really remember what gift you got for your birthday six years ago?  I can!  My wife started our tradition of giving experienced based gifts during our first year of dating when she surprised me with a Hot Air Balloon Ride for my birthday.  It was an incredible day that neither of us will ever forget!

Start the Tradition

Since then, we’ve continued to surprise each other with numerous concerts, events and activities that have created lasting memories.   These memories are far more memorable than a physical gift will ever be and it doesn’t have to break the bank.  Watch for deals on Groupon or Living Social for restaurants, activities and events that are in your area for significant discounts.

    I agree to your point that memories are the best gift to men ever. I remember that my wife has presented me a wrist watch on my first day together, but more than the present I remember how she had travelled 200km to surprise me at 12am with help of my friends.
    Moments makes memories, and are truly the best gift ever.
