Default What did you get your other for Xmas?

Just curious as to what the main gift for your significant other was?

For her, tile in the master bathroom and radiant electric heat on a programmable thermostat, new trim and maybe crown molding if she's good.

I know, no diamonds, but that was what she wanted, and what I could afford this year.

She got new paint and carpet in the master bedroom, walk-in closets and two other bedrooms. She wants DDR for the Wii.

Apart from that, tickets back to see her family in England in Jan, which I'll do on miles!

I have a baby due Jan 6, so I had to get my wife a push present and a Christmas present. I figured I'd combine them and get her something really nice. She's going to love it but kick my butt when the bill comes . Sometimes she looks on here so my lips are sealed....

A 2006 Mercruiser 350 Magnum long block (thanks Nautidiver). I think I will get her an Edelbrock Performer intake and a 4 barrel for an early birthday present.

I was going to get the Misses a French Maid in a little skimpy black and white outfit, but I figured that would be a little selfish on my part. Instead I got her a top of the line iron so she can do her own ironing.

New carpet in Master Bdrm and on our stairs. Several gifts under the tree but I can not list them here since she checks out THT on a regular basis.

Some hand made hanging candle holder. Probably some poor bastid in India or China got $.12 for brazing together, an importer got $50 for importing, a distributor $50 in markup, and $100 profit for the expensive junk shop in town where she saw it.
I feel like I gave 3 presents already!

Dance Dance Revolution, see link. It's an exercise "game"! You have probably seen it in arcades, where the arrows come down and you have to stomp on the right square in time with the music. You can get it for Wii and it comes with a sensitive mat you stomp on. Damn hard work too!

Putting in new countertops today for her that were delivered friday. Also a bunch of carhart shirts and vests, which she wouldn't buy for herself. I'll have to look at carhart's website and see if they have a line of french skimpy..........
