    gift ideas

    gift ideas for the wife...go
    in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.

    Something you make yourself, like a photo collage, drawings, and/or poems.

    Buy her a day at a Spa, massage and such. I would LOVE that.
    Thereís a promise I need you to make
    While Iím gone you take care of the love
    And Iíll deal with the hate.

    Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    Greet her at the front door while wrapped in saran wrap

    Unless of course you have already done that

    I kept doing that even when I was 8!

    OK, how about buying her something that you've been wanting, so that you can use it regardless of whether she really wants it?

    Oh OK, then I guess it can no longer seem original.

    How about a new car to go along with the GPS?

    again, we're getting back to gifts that i give to her but really want for myself. plus, in all honesty, a full night is a lot to ask for at this point in my life. id give it the old college try however.

    Okay. How about a shopping spree? Get several gift cards from various shops that you know she likes (including a restaurant), wrap each individually, and put them in a small shopping bag.

    Or if she's a spa person, get her a full spa day.

    If there's somewhere that she's always wanted to go, take her there even if it's a place that you hate (and don't complain while you're there).

    Give her a night out with the girls - a restaurant gift certificate and a hotel room for a night at a luxury hotel.

    If she doesn't already have one, maybe get a small gold badge pendant on a chain. My dad gave those to each of us and I treasure it.

    Start a charm bracelet for her if she doesn't have one.

    If she's a cosmetics kind of woman, this is great: Trish McEvoy Deluxe Plannerģ Makeup System (Black) - - Nordstrom

    If she gardens, get her some gardening tools, gloves, a sun hat, and a kneeling mat.

    If there's a book that she loves, find a special or rare edition.

    Have pictures or videos of the two of you put onto a single dvd.

    If she's always wanted to take some type of class, find one and pay for it and whatever materials she may need.

    This is very difficult, not knowing anything about her!!

    she has an 07 subaru lagacy sedan with only 29k miles on it. i cant really justify a new car right now. id like to get her an suv to cart the kids around in, but she loves her car.

    Oh, OK.

    What do you get the woman who has everything....

    How about:

    Twelve drummers drumming,
    Eleven pipers piping,
    Ten lords a-leaping,
    Nine ladies dancing,
    Eight maids a-milking,
    Seven swans a-swimming,
    Six geese a-laying,
    Five golden rings,
    Four calling birds,
    Three French hens,
    Two turtle doves,
    And a partridge in a pear tree!

    lots of good stuff here...a night out with the girls could go over well. i could also get the kneeling mat for that night full of amazing sex. she hates gift cards, even though i think the shopping spree of gift cards is a great idea.

    she's 5'4, 125 lbs and in good shape. we go to a gym together, and i was thinking about getting her some sessions with a personal trainer because shes been wanting to take her workout to the next level and kick that last bit of baby weight that shes been struggling to shed, but im afraid that will send the wrong message.

    the charm thing could be cool. i was also looking at some jewlery with our kids birthstones on them.

    and i want it to be difficult for you, because i want a lot of suggestions to choose from. you guys are helping out a lot though.

    exactly my dilemma...but more like the woman who wants nothing for herself. she just wants the kids to have a great christmas.
