    Christmas gift ideas for spouse

    Looking for gift ideas for the woman who has all she needs and won't ask for anything...

    Last time I got her a high quality writing pen and that was a hit (something she uses nearly every day).

    Any successes in the past for anyone?

    Best thing I ever got my ex was a nice makeup table, solid oak.

    I'm that type of woman too. If I want something I prefer to buy it at a yard sale or thrift store for $1. Lately I decided I have enough (too much) stuff and have been avoiding buying anything else. I have 7 bikes and all the clothes and gear I could ever need to go with them.

    My birthday is coming up and I cannot think of anything at all that I want.

    So, sorry, can't help you out.

    for mine I always score with ear rings. I know what she likes and she loses them so there's always room for more. if you don't know what she likes then don't waste the money. another biggy here can be colorful artsy jackets she can wear to art openings. that's particular to her - not for everyone.

    Dishwasher? Iron? Apron?
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Well I vote against any kitchen or household appliances. Those imply you want her to do more cleaning or cooking.
    Jewelry is usually appreciated.

    "Normal" is just a setting on a washing machine.
