So Christmas is approaching fast and OT season is upon us so I thought this may pass as acceptable. If not the mods can remove it, but given the state of things lately, removing ourselves from discussions about UM football probably isn't a bad thing.
So my wife and I have been married 12 years and together for 20. I used to be really good at buying gifts that she loved but the past two years I have been altogether stumped as to what to get. After 20 years I'm just fresh out of ideas. She seems to have everything she wants but I really want to get her something that shows I put a lot of thought into it....
Soooooo, here's what I have in mind for this thread. Anyone shopping for their wife/girlfriend can let the rest of us in on what you're thinking. Perhaps you'll find a good idea you neevr thought of, or maybe you'll put others onto a great gift idea for their significant other. You can also post some previous gifts that were a particular hit with your wife/girlfriend that maybe the rest of us have never thought of. Anything to help eachother out when trying to make the women who put up with us feel special at Christmas.
For my part, the biggest hit in a while was pretty much a throw away, last second thing that my wife loved. It was a kitchen Aid mix master and she absolutely loved it. I was jsut out of ideas and saw one on the shelf and thought "what the hell...I can give it to my mom if she doesn't like it".
Also, to the ladies out there you can play a vital role as well by telling us what you're looking for this year or what your favorite gifts were. In return we could help you if you were at a loss as to what your boyfiriend/husband might be looking for.
So Mgoblogger's, let's work together and make this Christmas a special one for our significant others.
