Jewelry is usually appreciated.
+1. That's why the pots and pans that Modo suggested would be so brilliant as gift wrapping. The let down before the delight.

But would she even look inside the pots before she started using them on your head?

Got any pets? Buy a heart shaped locked and stuff in the pet pics

How about a newspaper from the day she was born? Up to you to buy a true newspaper from some discarded library archive or a fake reprint, so be sure you get what you want. http://www.rarenewspapers.com/gifts/birthday

Night in a hotel room? But be sure to reassure her you'll be fine staying at home

World's best chocolate?

Victoria Secret gift card, a new set of deluxe hangers for her clothes (perhaps with a set of cachets to scent the closet?)or a total closet organizer system, one of proflower's monthly flower plans, if she wears suits, an art-deco or antique lapel pin, if she skis - a new ski suit & weekend ski getaway, some special x-mas tree ornaments, coach handbag, beautiful crystal stemware & wine/champagne? On the other hand, I always appreciate new potholders - but then, I've been married for 31 years!

Okay since we are saying what WE like...

I've got to say that one of the best surprises I got was an FSport suspension.

I'm actually campaigning for a new kitchen door.... The one we have is, I think, original to the house (pre WWII) & is falling off its hinges, plus, after a few glass replacements and one final plexi-glass replacement (which is, alas, duct-taped together at this point), AND the dog's foot-hold hole in the screen door (to open it, of course... and then brute-force his way through the wood/glass door)... I'm ready. I've printed out pictures of acceptable pre-hung doors from Lowe's & HomeDepot... I figure, while we're at it, might as well get a door a modern fridge can fit through without having to take the sucker apart!

Has the OP found any random ads lying about the house? Could be a hint??

I scored a Cowichan Indian sweater last night and the three ladies I showed it to today all wanted it. No go as it's already spoken for. Be a good winter wearer for the OP wife. It's similar to this one. http://www.hills.ca/Cowichan-Sweater...esign-p87.html Any body who tries to sell you a "Cowichan" sweater that has any colour than white, grey and black in the design is trying to fob off a fake to you.
