Holiday Gifts For The Misses?

What are you getting your Signifigant Other, Wife, Girl Friend for Christmas? In the past I got her a Cannon film camera, artist paint kit, home computer, all sorts of perfume, and many girl movies. She has given me a wide screen TV, Cell Phone, new Play Station, great boy stuff and clothes. So far I have scored high on the emotional gift list, this year Im getting her perfumes, a home spa kit, Homedics stuff and some movies. I feel as if Im missing something, ideas?

I can think of a few ideas, but this probably isn't the best website to discuss those...

You don't think a WAI kit is romantic?

Seriously, I'm still at a total loss this year too. No offense, but to me perfumes and soaps and stuff just seem like I went to the mall and bought whatever had pretty packaging instead of thinking of something she really wants. (I'm not saying those are bad gifts, if that's what your spouse wants, but for me they just seem too generic). Maybe it's my fussiness why I can't figure out what to buy...

It's kinda too late to put real thought and observation into it now. The time to come up with a really good gift was over the past year.

I did really well picking out gifts for my wife this Christmas, I think. I paid attention, I took notes, I photographed things she liked in stores (camera phone is very useful), I observed what she struggles with every day. Then I made a list, got what I could, and offered the rest to others as suggestions for what to get her (since nobody can ever figure out what to get for her).

Some years I'm good like that, other years I'm more like you guys.

It's a lot cheaper when I'm ahead of the game...
