How about

He fulfilled my wish for a car


He satisfied my wish for a car


A standard phrase is grant a wish. In fact, a search of Google reflects that numerous organizations use the phrase as part of their names or slogans.

A related phrase is fairy godmother. This is an idiom for a wish grantor.

A generous benefactor.

    It was interesting. Unfortunately, I should choose one answer, and I found Alex's more relevant. Vote up :) Apr 14, 2014 at 14:54

    @a The beauty of language is the many ways we can say things and the subtle differences we can convey by those choices. You select the words that best convey what you want to convey. No need to apologize.

What about realize your wish?

  • Can I use it as: "I try to realize your wish?". Or, "I can realize your dream?" Apr 14, 2014 at 14:43
