Is there any charity she's involved with? I'm a big animal lover, and my husband sometimes "adopts" an animal for me. Like one year he adopted me a whale. It's a nice gift for someone who already has a lot of stuff, and it's doing something good for the world.

If you can afford it, don't worry too much about what you can wrap for Christmas morning -- a token will do if it is wrapped up with a promise for some time together.

After the holidays - that's when the real gift will bring a smile to her lips and a sparkle to her eyes. Take her away. Go to the ocean for a few days - or to a small tourist town in the mountains. Just go spend time together. Hold hands as you walk and stop to enjoy a nice breakfast, lunch and dinner that someone else made. Take her to a jewelry store and see if she takes a special liking to some pair of earrings, or ring... and if you can afford it, buy it for her.

That is my suggestion -- let's see if anyone else can beat it.

Music, at least for a stocking stuffer. Maybe a trip down memory lane.

If she has any siblings, you can ask a brother or sister what kind of Christmas music they listened to growing up.

I just found a website that helps get find CD versions of period christmas music and children's music www.themusiclocator.com

their e-mail address is themusiclocator@yahoo.com

Hi,
I would love to offer some assistance, but I don't know anything about your wife....but you do...you are the one who loves and lives with her..What are her interests, listen carefully for hints from her. If it comes from you...no matter what it is, as long as it comes from your heart, and is a reflection of how you feel about her, she'll love it.
I know this sounds like a commercial for a jewelery store or something, but it's true.
My husband bought me a 12 string guitar one year, because I didn't have one, and the only time I would sing was when we were at a party, using someone's guitar. when he gave it to me, he said, now I can hear you sing all of the time....I must say, It was absolutely wonderful.
Take Care,
Lisa

The ladies love something that sparkles! Get her jewelry - especially if that's not a usual gift from you. Shopo online and avoid the crowds though. Good deals abound. Try http://www.bellasperanza.com for starters and go ffrom there.

Lisa Nova Scotia, are you sure your not my wife? That would be her answer. It really is as easy as that, except for one thing. We're men. We don't take to hints nor do we listen to subdlties. Tell us what you would like, make a list shout it out or just hit us over the head. But whatever you do don't expect us to get it.
Background: I have been married to the same women for 21 yrs and still do get hints. Still, I love her and she me.

If your wife can buy you power tools, you use once and a while. What is wrong with a appliance that will get used everyday. Like a toaster or vacuum. just add a little something to make it special. ie. toaster, with her favourite bagels and cream cheese. Vacuum with a gift cert. for a pedicure, or lotion for a foot massage. just to show you appreciate the time she spend on her feet doing house work.

Last year I bought my wife a broom with her name engraved on it. I am getting tired of seeing her scoop the trash into her hands. This year I bought her the dustpan. I did not get it engraved, but I have a roll of masking tape in the garage and a black marker, I guess I will tell her to write her name on that as a tag or something... I stuffed her stocking with some dust and toenail clippings so she can try her new dustpan out... I know she'll like it, after all I told her to like it.

What a lucky girl to have the last ape as a husband!

it's not about buying her something at christmas...it's about reminding her all year long...write her a post-it note, cook her dinner one night, or send her a gift "just becuase". www.remindyourlove.com makes that part pretty easy.

Anything that sparkles and you don't have to worry about if you got the right size or not, you can do that after Christmas. One year the wife gave me a JC Penny's catalog with several outfits circled that she liked and the sizes. Went down to the catalog department, ordered a few and when they came in they gift wrapped them for a small charge. One stop shopping.

I like the idea of "something sparkly that every women loves to receive". I did it years ago to my wife, I bought her a case of baby duck (sparkly Write!). I tought I could even get something out of it... well I did after she drank her second bottle and got sick to her stomack... in bed.
"something sparkly they said".

I think Jewelery is always very nice. There are also spa gift certificates for a massage or facial. Women always feel guilty taking money to go and treat themselves so you can do it for her. Find a nice one though like one that serves chocolate and champagne. Hope you figure out something awesome.
