What To Get That Special Someone…

Each and every year I am puzzled with the time old question “What do I get my significant other?”  Well, after all these years I have listened to my wife about things that she doesn’t want, but she never tells me what she does want.  I have been looking for anything that she will actually use.  Things like spa treatments, hair stylings, and teddies just aren’t up her alley.

I have been noticing a bit more that she is enjoying cooking a bit more than she used to.  I am trying to find just the right kitchen appliance for her.  She has almost everything, and that is where the problem lies.  Now I have to figure out the other time old question of “What do you get for someone that has everything?”

I am open to suggestions.

Things For The Mom

For many years I have been trying to find the most unique mothers day gifts for my wife.  This is among all the other holidays that I have to figure out her gifts.  I have searched high and low, but still have yet to find the perfect gift for her.  You see the problem I have is that she doesn’t wear jewelry, doesn’t like many perfumes, and I know better than to purchase clothing.

I am totally baffled with this problem, and would appreciate any suggestions that you may have for me.

All I Don’t Want For Christmas…

This Christmas I have made up a list and given it to everyone that is important.  That list is things that I do not want for Christmas.  I decided to make this list because it is easier than writing a list of what I do want.  This was also done because some people just don’t have a clue when they are shopping and get something because they think you will like / want it.

Here is some of the list…

  • Battlefield: Bad Company 2
  • Playstation 3
  • XBox 360
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • IPod
  • Apple Computer
  • laptop
  • computer
  • ties
  • suits
  • dress shirts

Have you ever tried this approach for Christmas?  This is the first year for me, and I hope it works.
