As a man, the thought of going on a shopping trip with your partner will no doubt fill you with dread. Not only do you become the designated caddy for all her purchases, but you’re dragged into every dressing room so you can tell her, “No darling, your bum doesn’t look big in that.”
It’s not a pleasant experience, and can be one that you’ll try and get out with a whole host of elaborate excuses. In fact, statistics indicate that 80% of men hate shopping with their other half, and 45% will avoid it at all costs. But sometimes, you just have to take one for the team.
However, when the next shopping trip starts to loom, we’ve found something that will help to alleviate all the stress, and make you feel like you’re chilling at home in front of your favourite TV programme.
Sit Down, Relax and Enjoy the Experience

And the best bit is, you can even upgrade your chair so it comes with Wi-Fi – what more could you need?
Other Top Tips for Your Shopping Nightmare
Now you’re armed with the ultimate accessory for your next shopping trip, here are just a few other points as to how you can make sure it’s an enjoyable experience – for both you and your partner.
Don’t tell your wife she looks “fine” when she tries an outfit on, as this suggests she just looks average. Instead, use words such as gorgeous, fabulous or stunning. And never comment on the price tag – if you do, it’s highly likely that your partner will buy the item anyway, you’ll argue and the day will be ruined. Instead, try to tactically suggest she looked beautiful in the other dress she tried on at the other store (the one that was drastically cheaper).
