Yup. We had 1009 versions of this sentence before I incorporated your suggestion in all versions. Now we have 1729. One little suggestion for a man, one huge step for Duolingo..

Works as well. :)

Chtěl bych koupit své ženě dárek. - emphasis on dárek

Chtěl bych koupit dárek pro svoji manželku. - emphasis on svoji manželku

You usually put the information that you want to stress at the end.

It's weird then, because my sentence wasn't accepted, even though I think it's fine, I reported it. But I understand that it should work now, right?
