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?

What size frame does she take?

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

A massage gift certificate is always welcome.

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.

Ask yourself "What Would George Do?"

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.

here's a list from 25 Christmas Gifts For Her

How about a nice dinner at her favorite restaurant?

Dishwasher? Iron? Apron?

Membership to a swingers club. Trust me, she is already thinking about it.

My wife has never complained about flowers and liz lovely cookies.

MangoPumpkin 11-21-13 10:18 AM

I like gift certs for things I like to buy.

Perfume, books, candles....things like that.

bikeguyinvenice 11-21-13 10:29 AM

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