Mayor Rob Ford is offering husbands tips on what to get their wives for Christmas.

“Women love money,” he told a Washington radio show on Thursday.

“You give them a coupla thousand bucks and they’re happy.”

Ford told the hosts of Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan that he planned to get his wife “some treats on the side.” But he added, “At the end of the day she wants her cash.”

He said he’ll be giving her “a nice cheque.”

Ford’s wife, Renata, who is seldom seen in public, stood by her husband’s side last month after he spouted an obscenity on live TV while denying allegations contained in police documents submitted in court.
