The singer says there’s only one thing she wants for Christmas

Getting the perfect gift for your spouse this holiday season may prove to be challenging, which is why Centric enlisted R&B Diva Syleena Johnson to share her gift guide on what she plans on getting her husband. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around what to get your husband, wife, or significant other, check out what items the singer says would make great gifts, including one practical gift she says is all she wants for Christmas.

Playstation 4

Johnson: “I would get a Playstation 4 because I know my husband wants one, which is sick, but that’s what he wants."
Editor's Note: The PS4 is most certainly at the top of many gift wishlists. No matter their age, game fanatics are dying to get their hands on it. Aside from its primary use as a game console, the PS4 allows you to watch DVDs, share video streams from your computer or mobile device and even stream Netflix, Hulu or Amazon.

A Car

Johnson: “I’ll probably get him a car, because he wants one of those too. He wants a Jag.”
Editor’s Note: For men especially, a car is the way to the heart - particularly sports car. Nothing says I love you more than new wheels. If you don’t quite have the funds to get a brand new car, consider trading an old car for a new one, or look into used cars that are still in great condition.

Shopping Spree

Johnson: "I’d probably take him on a gym-shoe shopping spree. Maybe $1,000 to Foot Locker. He’s always complaining about needing gym shoes.”
Editor’s Note: Make your partner feel like a king or queen for a day and take them to their favorite store and let them splurge a little. There’s nothing wrong with setting a reasonable budget, though. It’s the thought that counts.

Winter Coat

Johnson: "We don’t live in a cold climate, but maybe I’d get him a coat.”
Editor’s Note: Don’t just get your mate any coat. Go stylish and inexpensive with department stores like H&M, Topshop/Topman or Zara. For the heavy duty winter coat, try the classic North Face.

Gift Certificate

Johnson: “I’m a gift certificate girl; I like giving gift certificates and I like receiving them. I would want a $2,000-dollar gift certificate to Dick’s so that I can buy as much running gear, yoga wear and workout gear as possible, because when I lose weight my clothes get too big. That’s all I want.”
Editor’s Note: Gift certificates are becoming a trending gift idea. It eliminates the gift wrapping and makes it a lot more easy for the gift buyer, not to mention it allows your spouse to pick out their own gifts to eliminate the anxiety as to whether they’ll like your choice or not.
