Lets be honest here when it comes to shopping most men suck. I know it sounds sexist but it is mostly true, I suppose I could say it is just the men in my house but I am sure it isn’t.So what can you do to encourage the man in your life to get out there and shop? Well you can start by taking the TV remote off him, obviously don’t do this when there is a big game on or else there will be uproar. Once you have control of the TV remote at least you are assured of his attention.So what is the next step in actually getting him out the door and into the shops? Then of course making sure he buys useful presents that are at least in the right size or style.ListsWhile you don’t have to provide a specific list for everyone he has to buy for, you could give him a list with 3 broad hints on it for each person he is buying for. While you may not think he needs help to buy his parents a present the chances are he does.BudgetThis really depends on who is the financially level headed person in the relationship, if he has a tendency to get out the credit card at the drop of a hat then maybe you should remind him of the need to stick to a budget.Shop Early Get Home EarlyThe sooner he gets his shopping done the sooner he gets home and can regain control of his TV remote.While this may all sound very lighthearted, it can be a serious problem, if he goes shopping at the last minute for Christmas gifts you could end up getting a Snuggie as a gift and no one wants that do they?
