    anything you buy her will
    anything you buy her will mean more to her than you can imagine, with that said, diamonds are always nice!!:)

    Diamonds Kathy! ha,ha,ha.

    A kiss on the hand
    May be quite continental,
    But diamonds are a girls,s best friend.

    There may come a time
    When a lass needs a lawyer,
    But diamonds are a girl's best friend.

    It's then that those louses
    Go back to their spouses.
    Diamonds are a girl's best friend.

    Yap but I can't afore it , at least not impressive ones, Next suggestion please! LOL.

    A colorful scarf or good
    A colorful scarf or good leather gloves?

    Or a day of pampering?

    Or just assuring her that you will do anything you can to continue to be there for her.

    I second Alice's suggestion

    I second Alice's suggestion - a gift certificate to the spa for a massage/nails/feet. I like Kathy's too (I just told Rick that he's going to have to start writing!) ;-)
    Anyway, how about a gold necklace with pendant - not too expensive, just something simple and classy. Or maybe a ring with her birthstone flanked by a couple of small diamonds (chips even), again, it doesn't need to be too expensive. I'm really picky about my handbags, so nobody would even TRY to buy one for me! :-) Happy shopping!! :-)

    When our (me and my husbands) work gets crazy, which it has been since my mom got sick, we give each other the gift of time. We say that we are going to take a trip on a specific day. We spend the money that we were going to spend on christmas gifts on the trip.

    something else ,so this is the time for a surprise!
    She use to love jewels and hand bags too, concerning to hobbies and interests , she use to be very handy, and a big reader but unfortunately since I'm sick she spends more and more time behind her lap top smoking a lot , chatting by facebook or working , and of course taking care of me!.

    It has nothing to do with a
    It has nothing to do with a handbag - just that I like the kayak paddle even better! It gets me places that a handbag can't.

    Whatever you get your wife she'll appreciate. By the way, in our tradition, it is bad luck to give an empty handbag - it must contain a few sous....

    Happy Christmas!

    I will tell you what we are doing
    This year my oldest daughter suggested we do "family rings" for Christmas. We are having rings made for my two daughters + me with each of our birthstones on them. For my husband we are having cufflinks made with the 4 gems in it. There are also some beautiful bracelets out there, which seem to be very poular with a lot of my friends + can be purchased at many price points. Also, if she loves to travel + you are going to NYC when you are NED, what about a book about NYC? One Christmas my husband planned my whole Christmas gift around travel - suitcase, books, nice soaps etc.; it was a wonderful gift + left me anticipating our first one week holiday w/o kids, which we took in May.
