There’s no doubt receiving flowers, chocolates, and other gifts on special occasions will make any wife happy, but if you ask the women, you’ll realize it doesn’t take much to win them over.

That’s exactly what Dindo Estrella, a 39-year-old entrepreneur did for his wife, Dien Katrina Estrellas’s 34th birthday. He came up with 20 “reward cards” that she can redeem any time! Take a look:
In an email interview with SmartParenting.com.ph, Dien shared that her husband always had a hard time choosing a gift for her. So, she had no expectations at all for her birthday last August 8, especially because they had a huge fight the day before.
“We managed to reconcile that same night to work things out. While we were making amends, I told him that I don’t want anything,” she shares.

Dien says that she’s already “redeemed” two cards: ‘[I’ll] fix it for you, no complaints,’ and the ‘In-charge of kids for one day’ card. She’s looking forward to redeeming the others, and even told Dindo that five cards should have no expiry date. So far, her favorites include:
