    Default Christmas gift ideas for the wife needed

    I am always stumped when it comes to gifts for the better half. Any ideas would be appreciated.
    Thanks and Happy Hoilidays.

    you and me both.

    not sure about your wife....but i can't go wrong when i buy mine:

    a nice watch, new shoes, new purse, new make up, coffee, wine....and every couple of years...to keep in style...a new winter jacket.

    sheet oh. dear .....she has guccie taste w/ a walmart budget ...so, it's always difficult for me to get her something without breaking the bank....not that i mind cause i want to get her nice things and things she'll use and wear out....

    if any of you want to shop for me...just go to REI.com and you can't go wrong.

    Why not get her a nice bottle of perfume, White Diamonds and Chloe are both real nice. And get some pampering bath salts.. Extractor NOT... Something just for her not the house or the bees....

    I would seriously hope that was a tongue in cheek question. I would hate to think that anyone would actually come her for Xmas advice

    Years and years ago I took my nephew Christmas shopping. He was just a little boy. It was right before Christmas. Every Christmas gift he bought we had to go up to the gift wrapping department. He spotted a gold tea pot. I said, "we are not going to buy that cheap tea pot." He looked at me and said, ''... nine dollars is not a bad price for gold." We bought that "cheap" little tea pot and it was his grandmother's favorite gift. Of course his gifts looked spectacular under the Christmas tree -all gift wrapped. When you see that special gift you will know it. Merry Christmas.

    The Christmas gift my wife remembers as her favorite from years gone by is a new polished stainless steel .357 Magnum revolver.

    Nope, been married 23 years now, and it was over 10 years ago that I gave it to her. Usually load her practice rounds at .38 special velocities in .357 cases, but she carried full power hollowpoints for daily carry. She has since switched to carrying a compact, polymer framed 9mm, as it makes her purse lighter. Keeps the .357 next to the bed.
