Ok guys, what are you getting your woman for Christmas? The little lady has decided she wants a bath robe, but that is rather basic and boring. I will get that for her, but what else can I throw in? Been there, done that with Jewelry and stuff. Power tools don't cut it....and fishing stuff does not impress her anymore (I thought the Chronarch was a GREAT gift!!). Gimmie some ideas!

it's not too exciting, but a gift certificate to a nice store like bloomingdales or sephora is always appreciated by my little woman... that way, she gets what she wants... or some nice lingerie will do the job for her and you!... think about something she likes that she won't buy for herself.... like fancy perfume (chanel no5 is a classic that most women like)... hope this helps.

how about a gift certificate to one of those beauty salons that give facials, manicures, pedicures and massages-the works

women seem to go for stuff like that-

why not ask tina or meg?

What are her hobbies? How does she spend her free time? To me those areas always offer the potential for a thoughtful gift.

Bob beat me to it..

I usually do the salon gift certificate for my wife's birthday in October. It's a dual gift in a way: she gets pampered for awhile at the salon, while I take the girls off her hands for a few guaranteed hours.

I used to add accessories to her camera setup, but now she either has it, or it's out of my price range. Consider hobbies.

Merry Christmas and Good Luck.:beerchug:

For the Robe go to Victoria's secret good stuff plus, well hell just look around the store. A spa gift cert is a good idea. Of course my wife has me so really any gift would seem pale in comparison.LOL

Hard to shop for.

I'ld avoid Victorias Secrete, since those robes don't stay on to long and are not what I would call warm.

Go to LL Beans and get one of those Polartec 200 robes. Not sexy, but if you're up North, warm.

Wife burns herself w/ cooking spagetti and pourning out the water, so I got her on of those pots with holes in the lid for ease in draining at Linen and Things.

Gift Certificates - that's a cop out. Just keep the receipt, if she don't like it, you'll know.

Actually, you should have started 'listening' for stuff early in the year. My wife complained about the sterio in her room, so guess what Santa is bringing her?

Good luck - best bet is to search the brain for times when she really 'needed' something.

Buy her cleaning supplies... Chicks dig stuff like Vacuum Cleaners, and dont forget to get her a new Duster. If anyone wants to argure that then why are most commercials for cleaning items have Women in them? If this is chovenistic and politically incorrect then why arent Womans groups protesting. I mean when you see a commerical full of women racing Vacuum cleaners it tells you something. If she gets mad then just tell her the woman in the commercial seemed to enjoy using it.

Seth,
I have to agree with Mike & Bobn. Perfume is always a good idea. I know for a fact that the day spa thing goes over very well with the ladies. Nothing like treating them to a day of being pampered.:yes: :yes: :yes:

UhOh....

Dave,

You're joking, right?

One of my wife's gift-giving rules is "nothing that plugs in". That is unless she specifically asks for an item (like the CD and DVD players we now have.) The no-electric rule avoids "gifts" like vacuum cleaners, ovens, washers, clothesdryers, etc.

I'm with you on the commercials though.:rolleyes:

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR THE KITCHEN, OR HOME MAKING ITEMS IN GENERAL!!!:mad: Unless it it specifically requested! Been there...... done that. They want something personal; just for them! Trust me!!

Since I never know the styles and sizes, gift certificates for her favorite clothing store, always go over well for my wife. It's personal; it's just for her; she doesn't have to pretend to like it and then exchange it behind your back. She can use it at her leisure; when the mood strikes her and when the "good" sales are on. My 2 cents!:D

C'ya on the water,
Ted

STAY AWAY FROM HOSEHOLD ITEMS,

Make her feel like she did the day you guys got married...
Jewelry is nice, A pampering day at a spa with a massage works....
a weekend away with you and NO KIDS at a place with a hot tub, bottle of nice wine, good food... and take care of HER every need that weekend (more afterwards wouldn't hurt either), if you catch my drift....

ALWAYS think of what SHE would like for herself something she'd love but wouldn't buy for herself....

It's never easy, but pay attention. it will come to you.

It's worked for me for the past 30 years.......

Tight Lines... and Happy Holidays....

Thanks Guys!

Some good ideas. Not sure exactly what I will get, but hey, still plenty of time! Been married comming up on 5 years...most of the "easy" presents have been used.

Merry Christmas!
