Buy Her Something Just For Fun

10 Day Challenge – Day 7

Kate says . . .

Buy her something! Yup, just for no reason. You know what your wife likes. Does she love getting flowers, candy, a new piece of clothing or a book? Perhaps it is a new CD or DVD? What does your wife love that she just won’t get for herself? What does she enjoy doing with her few minutes of free time?

I’m Thinking Of You

Take an opportunity today to give her a gift and to treat her a bit. This does not have to be an expensive purchase by any means. A gift is something that says, “I’m thinking about you”, and “I know what you enjoy”. While it is not practical to do these kinds of things on a regular basis, it is a good thing to do here and there. Every wife likes a gift that says you were thinking of her when you weren’t together!

We know that you might feel obligated to give your wife a gift later this week on Valentines day! That’s great, but a wow surprise gift now and then is another great way to say I love you! If you already planned a big gift for Thursday, think about how to give her a free gift or inexpensive one as an extra surprise!

Skip the Lingerie

If a new piece of lingerie is the first thing that came to your mind, I am not surprised  😉 I would say, go for it . . . but let’s be honest guys, lingerie is NOT really a gift for her, is it? So if you decide to purchase something that will look incredibly sexy on your wife, I would encourage you to also find something that is just for her.

Washing in the Word:

To give you the opportunity to grow in all areas of intimacy during the 10 Day Challenge, take time to read these “Washing in the Word” moments together.

Proverbs 31: 10-31

Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies.
Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life.
She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.

She finds wool and flax and busily spins it.
She is like a merchant’s ship, bringing her food from afar.
She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.

She goes to inspect a field and buys it; with her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She is energetic and strong, a hard worker.
She makes sure her dealings are profitable; her lamp burns late into the night.

Her hands are busy spinning thread, her fingers twisting fiber.
She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy.
She has no fear of winter for her household, for everyone has warm clothes.

She makes her own bedspreads. She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
Her husband is well known at the city gates, where he sits with the other civic leaders.
She makes belted linen garments and sashes to sell to the merchants.

She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.
When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness.
She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness.

Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her:
“There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!”

Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise. (NLT)

  1. Hitting the wall is real…wonderful to learn something new about each other and ourselves. Thanks for the encouraging words to press forward together.

    • It is John! I remember when Brad and I discovered that wall. I knew I had a wall, but my amazing hubby didn’t think he did! 🙂 It was a learning and humbling lesson for both of us. Becuase we were making sex and intimacy a priority, it was ok and really a blessing as we grew closer and learned a great deal about each other. It really helps you BOTH to be intentional about that time! Blessings as you scale the wall together! Kate

    • I think most couples hit a wall during this challenge. It is a great opportunity to continue to seek each other out and scale that wall together! Keep seeking God and each other! Blessings, Kate

  2. this is great! for us the 10 day challenege didn’t go quite as I would have assumed… but great conversation has been spured and i’ve learned some things about my wife to possibly facilitate 10 days in a row a little later… 🙂 i would sure love eventually to be able to get a 10 day challenge “work book” for couple with the content that gets developed over the years… what if you guys did the 10 challenge quarterly? the giveawaya are such a cool idea! thank you Brad and Kate! you guys are such a blessing! – Greg

    • Hi Greg! Thanks so much for your encouragement and remember you can continue to make intimacy a priority for the 10 days. It is less about sex and more about prioritizing that time. You can always do a 10 day challenge on your own at anytime or multiple times! 😉

      We do hope to compile all of our info and posts into an ebook! Brad has worked on it many times and just not had the time to finish. Hopefully we can do that soon! Thanks for the encouragement.

      Hmm a quarterly challenge-will have to think on that. I worry that it might get old and then people would not respond. Thoughts?

      Thanks so much for sharing Greg, we truly appreciate it! Blessings, Kate

  3. I have been really encouraged, because all of your suggestions we do from time to time in our relationship. I appreciated this challenge because it is truly helping me to realize, we are doing well if we just take the time to appreciate our relationship thruough God’s provisions for marriage!

  4. We both decided we were going to do the 10 day challenge, but we’ve both been ill since the first day it started. And I mean really ill! So ill that I actually had to say no to sex…! Now that doesn’t happen often.

    However, we’ve decided that we’re going to reset the timer once we’re both feeling better later this month. Disappointing, but hopefully it will be still just as much fun. We will take all your tips and pointers then 🙂

    • Hi Poorly Husband,

      I’m sorry you guys are feelings so yucky and have not been able to join us. But as you said, you can do this whenever. You can keep coming back daily and enter our giveaways and then when you are ready to go, go for it. You can also re-read our daily tips and washing in the Word! Sometimes life throws us curve balls, just get better and then set a date to start! Praying for your recovery and your 10 days! Blessings, Kate

  5. In case you are running low on funds this month (I’ve already used all of my personal budget) you can make a gift as well…

    My wife will be receiving a letter later today. And since she’s had a long weekend, it’s a gift that will really help her out.

    • Matthew,
      That is absolutely correct! A letter or homemade card speaks volumes! Find a way to say, “I was thinking of you while we were not together today”! It is the sentiment that counts not the price tag!

  6. Im loving all the blogs for this challenge. They are really helping me with ideas i never would have thought about on my own. Thanks

  7. Loving this challenges and give away. I would love a special gift from my husband. Even if I don’t get anything, I still know he loves my unconditionally.

  8. When I took the Five Love Languages Challenge, gifts was my lowest scoring language. That being said, I still love to get things every now and then. 🙂

  9. Came across this site a few days ago, and am loving it! I love the gifts idea! The last few years (this year I just had a baby, so it didn’t get done) I have given my husband little gifts or something almost every day of February leading up to Valentines. It was really fun!

    -Hannah

  10. A ten dollar bouquet of colorful flowers from the grocery store to brighten up the house shows he’s still thinking of me when he’s working crazy hours. I think it really means more than the expected (Valentine’s b.day, etc)
