Most of us have probably received the emailed “Good Wife’s Guide” from a 1955 edition of Housekeeping Monthly. (You know the one; it suggests that you “Touch up your make up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking” for your work-weary husband when he gets home.)
Well now you can buy a book’s worth of similar wisdom and advice. These pocket books, last published in 1913 but revived to celebrate their publisher’s 200th Anniversary, offer hints and tips like “Don’t scowl or look severe. Cultivate a pleasant expression if Nature hasn’t blessed you with one.”
And “Don’t refuse to see your husband’s jokes. They may be pretty poor ones, but it won’t hurt you to smile at them.”
They cost £3.75 each and come with free delivery when ordered at The Anniversary Present.
