Ford said that ultimately, women just want cash.
"Give them a couple of thousand bucks and they're happy. Get some treats on the side obviously for her," he said. "At the end of the day, she wants her cash. So I give her a nice cheque and we're all happy."
Though Ford consistently gifts with cash, he says presents form his wife are always a great surprise.
"She always surprises me. I have a fantastic wife," he said.
Ford also got in the holiday spirit on Tuesday by singing and dancing to reggae and Christmas music at a city council meeting.
