Default Last minute gift ideas

I've gotten my wife several presents, most of which she asked for, and a pair of Mikimoto pearl earings which will be a suprise. I guess the fact that I was able to get everything in one easy trip to the Mall has me feeling that I haven't done enough. That coupled with the fact that lots of guys haven't even started shopping yet seem like a good reason to start this thread.


So......... let's hear 'em boys.

Five hours, 35 views and not a single reply. If that doesn't epitomize man's approach to shopping... Not only do we have this whole week remaining, there's the entire weekend available. Shopping is a sport - the fun is in the hunting and gathering and the true challenge is in the waning hours of the shopping season. Well, at least that's my story and I'm sticking with it....

What's the rush here ????? Just kick back, relax and have a chilly one.... an idea will pop into your mind before you finish the third beer.... IF, after the thrid beer you still haven't thought of anything, have one more and think a little harder. Think along the lines of gift certificates to places like Victoria's Secret, Crate and Barrel, or maybe her favorite on line store. And if all else fails go to Cabela's and get her a little certificate that she could us on YOU...... or the BOAT....... no sense wasting good brain power, we have so little of it left......

Cole Haan Bag with a bunch of $50 gift certificates to different stores in the mall. I know it sounds like a cop out, but she would love to disappear for an evening, with me watching the kids, and "shop" for herself.

I actually just got a raise which was what we were waiting for on buying a car, but I don't think I have enough time to get that done. There are only a few things that I will actually spend the time on researching before I will pull the trigger and cars are one of them.

Hey BugB, nice digs!

I'm still thinkin and haven't come up with anything yet. But there's no reason to rush. I still have almost a week.

We've been married a really long time, and a guy can only come up with so many new ideas, right? I'm fresh out.

So if any of you have any suggestions, besides gift certificates, I'm listening!

My wife loves to take pictures, sooooo, new camera and a digital picture frame so see can see some of the pics that we already have.

Granted its not a house, but I get an E for effort .

Thanks for the ideas. Just completed purchasing 2 Day Spa gift certificates, and am looking for a few other items my daughters suggested. I did the new camera and photo printer last year, and she doesn't like me to pick out clothes for her (something about no taste ). It will all come together by Christmas eve. It always does
