I usually go with "Honey, I didn't get you anything because I give you love every day".
Try it out and let me know how it goes!

I know that it's difficult for some of you, but try to listen for little hints and nuances. Has she mentioned that she would like to join a gym? Does she get her nails done? What are her hobbies? Is she a collector of anything?

Gift certificates to her favorite hair or nail salon, or a bit of pampering at a day spa.
As JCF mentioned, jewelry is always good. Buy her a pandora bracelet and a few charms. You can add charms for years of gift giving. Godiva Chocolate is another good choice.

One word of warning... DO NOT GIVE ANYTHING THAT RELATES TO THE KITCHEN OR HOUSEWORK unless she specifically asks for it. Even if she says "I could use some new cookware" that does not make it suitable as a gift!

Nah, get her an iron or a vacuume cleaner. I actually did buy her an iron once. She did not throw it at me and we are still married.

Instead of Jeep parts, give her(if she has a Jeep) a gift card from somewhere she can buy her own things, thats better than getting her a part she doesn't really want

^^^^^X2,


Back this summer, the wife was out on a walk with a neighbor, so my daughters (6 and 8) wrote her "Good Night Mommy" notes, I dug them out of the wifes little keepsake box and had them framed with the date engraved on it. Pretty cute with the kiddie writing and misspellings, I think she'll dig it.


She always says she has too much stuff (Bless her, now you know why I married this one!) and doesn't really want anything so I have to get creative.


Another inexpensive idea:
I raided my aunt's photo albums a few years back and pulled pictures from my mom's family growing up. I picked out pix of her parents, grandparents,sisters and brothers going back to the 50's and 60's and had them made into a calendar at Walgreen's or Office Depot...cost maybe twenty bucks and made Mom cry like a baby. Now they hang in her kitchen all year.

We took that idea and now we get calendars for just about everybody and it's pretty cheap to have done. You can also buy a program to make your own calendar and upload pics from your computer to it.
Just make sure yopu use pics that they like, not 12 months of Jeeps in the snow
