This is a book for males—of all ages. (Yes, ladies, you can read it, too, if you want to.)

If you have ever given a woman a gift and received a dull stare or even a look of utter disgust—THE LOOK—instead of a thank you or a big smile, hug and kiss, you know the feeling of making one of the biggest mistakes you will ever make as a male: giving the love of your life a present that you THINK she will want, love, or cherish, and not what she really wants. It’s called a BAD gift, and I don’t care how much it cost, nor does she.

You would think that if you took the time to shop and spend your hard-earned cash, that there is no such thing as a bad gift. WRONG!

If you have never given a woman a less-than-well-received gift, the rest of us poor souls salute you. You must have either been raised in a cave filled with women of all ages, or—like Mel Gibson’s character Nick Marshall in the movie What Women Want—you are just light years ahead of the rest of us who are searching for just that right gift that will earn us a special place in the corner of her heart for the rest of our life.

I am writing this book because I have spent the better part of my adult life trying to figure out what women really want and what will make them happy and satisfied when it comes to gifts. Trust me, I have made more bad choices than good ones over the years, but after painstaking research (for about fifteen minutes), I believe that I finally have the answer.

This book will not be long or complicated because I am writing it for the male gender. Don’t take this as an insult, gents; this line was to appease the women who may read this book because many of them think most of us are insensitive, unemotional, gift-giving idiots. Who knows, there may even be a sequel for the women on giving gifts to men; nah—on second thought, that book would be too short to make me any money. Gentlemen, are we that simple and easy when it comes to what we want in life? For many, the answer is a simple yes; for others, a complicated no. Ask any women what a man wants, and she doesn’t need a book to answer that question.

Now keep in mind, fellas, that when I am talking about gifts for her, I am referring to any or all of the following special events or holidays:

– birthdays
– Christmas or Hanukkah
– Mother’s Day
– Valentine’s Day
– Grandmother’s Day
– Groundhog Day
– the first day of spring
– the last day of summer
– the second Tuesday in June
– plus any other holiday or occasion I may have overlooked.

Got it? Any day is an appropriate day for gift giving from the women’s perspective, and until you learn this simple lesson, you may spend a lot of time agonizing, apologizing, hiding, or squirming, or all of the above.

And to think you are getting all of this help and advice for less than 20 bucks. I’ll bet this book saves you more aggravation and cash than anything you have ever spent money on in your entire life, plus I will also personally guarantee that if you will follow its very simple and common recommendations, that you will never ever be in trouble again for your thoughtless gift giving.

Now, there may be a few members of the male gender out there who are thinking, “I have never given her a bad gift yet.”

How do you know? Because she always acted happy with everything you gave her? Not a surefire way to determine she really liked what you did, trust me.


Men give gifts for one of three reasons:

1. They want something in return.

2. They truly love and cherish the female in their life and want to express that love with acts of kindness or thoughtfulness with their gifts.

3. It is something they secretly want themselves.

Professional Reviews

Bonnie Davis
5/2004 - Book Review, Bonnie Jo Davis, Gift Guru

This extraordinary book was recommended to me by a colleague after he visited my new web site, Gift Ideas For Women. The Male Gift Giving Survival Guide compliments my website perfectly, untangling for men the web of gifts for women. It deciphers the components of the complex female psyche to its most logical terms. And no, that’s not a misprint...I just used the words “female” and “logical” in the same sentence.

There is but one universal truth about those of the fairer sex: “Women Love Gifts”. So, all women love gifts... a guy doesn’t have to be a genius to grasp that concept. Or does he? Ask your golf buddy who gave his wife a garden rake for her birthday. “You just had to remind me” he mumbles dropping his head. Make certain that you have lined up another friend for next week’s game though...your buddy is going to drop you like a rock. According to the author, women adore gifts that reflect the love of the giver and his explicit understanding of her desires and tastes. As a woman, I must salute this author. His book is the literal lifeboat of women’s gift ideas, without which no self-respecting man would ever set sail on the sea of relationships.

The author, Tim Connor, is a seasoned and well-traveled professional speaker who has authored 45 books. He wrote this book based upon the knowledge he gained in his personal mission to discover the keys to female happiness. The result of his quest is this easy-to-read, spiral bound book that men can refer to routinely. Not only does Tim’s book disclose the keys to a woman’s happiness, it is the genuine tool for unlocking it with an ever-so-easy click.

The book begins with the quote:

"A man who knows what women want rules the world."

- Nick Marshall

This first quote of many accurately reflects the intention of this book. Continual studies concur that the happiest relationships, right or wrong, are those in which the woman is happy and fulfilled. There are some common guidelines in the book that apply to every woman regardless of her individual preferences and needs.

Important chapters include "The 20 Biggest Gift-Giving Mistakes Men Make", "It's not about the money or the number of gifts, or is it?" and two chapters detailing in-depth, women’s stories about the worst and best gifts they have ever received. Many of the best gifts, as pointed out in the book, were not the most expensive or glittery. They were often romantic gifts that were well thought out, affordable, considerate and timely.

Many of the collective complaints about gifts from men to women are that the men often don't remember important dates, don't pay attention to the nuances of a woman's life and don't know what she prefers most or cares for the least. The Male Gift Giving Survival Guide covers all three bases. The book features an extensive diary prompting men to record important dates, what makes her happy or feel loved, favorite colors, dress and jewelry sizes, travel destinations, food, restaurants, activities, etc. Guys can fill out this diary as their relationship with a woman progresses and consult it regularly for help choosing the perfect gift. Other diary sections are for tracking any gift given to the woman, her reaction and also a gift log so that the same gift is not given again and again.

Overall, I found this book to be an amusing and accurate portrayal of the importance of gifts in the life of a woman. Every male over the age of twelve who reads and follows this book will certainly reflect the female appreciation of his genius in the smile he wears on his face.

About the reviewer:

Bonnie Jo Davis, also known as the Gift Guru, has taken gift giving to a new level in order to help men stay out of the gift giving doghouse. Her new website eliminates male shopping jitters by helping men select the perfect gift for every woman in their life.
