Together 9 years and don't know? Wait - I've been with my wife for 9 years too (married one year) and I don't have a clue what she'd like either...

Actually - she wants (another) Coach purse but the budget's too tight this year.

Finding something less expensive that isn't cheap is harder IMHO.

Good luck bro....

$250 to $500 is good, but that's up to you. I usually spend around $500, but we don't have any kids and only a few nieces and nephews and we both work full time (we've been together for 10, married for 4). And she has a birthday in Oct and she gets treated pretty good then too.

Whatever you spend, the most important thing is that you thought about it and got her something you think would make her smile.

Jewelry never fails or a gift certificate to a spa. Add in a card and a few little fun things into the stocking (shows thought) and THEN you put the bow on your cock.

But, ask her for some ideas. I have been for 10 years and this year was the first time I actually got a list of ideas.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

+1 on the Jewelry (There are some small percentage that actually hate jewelry, but you'll know if she's one or not). Does she have pierced ears or like to wear rings? What's her favorite color or birthstone? You may find a decent ring, pendant, pair of earrings in a classic design that should easily land in that budget window. You'll get more for your dollar sticking with classic cuts and designs over 'modern' or 'neo-style' designs. A nice watch (if she doesn't already have one) also makes a great gift because it can be used as an accessory to outfits she already has. (It could even spark the idea later in the post-Christmas sales to find a new outfit to match the watch :>)

+1 again on the Spa gift certificate or anywhere else *SHE* can be pampered, where the experience is all about HER; also consider Pedicures, Manicures, etc...

Another thing to consider is the 2 of you getting away for the weekend some place (romantic getaway) where you arrange it all in advance and all she has to do is lightly pack and head off with you.

Could she use a new Iron or maybe a nice mop? Always good gifts.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
