Rules for gift buying for women:

Do not buy cleaning tools, no vacuums or washing machines. Buy your wife something SHE likes, not something you want to buy for her. Flowers are nice when there is no occasion, but not on a Birthday or Anniversary. Candy is like saying you don't know her well enough to think of anything else. Doesn't take much thought.

If all else fails buy jewelry good jewelry.

I've used the wife countless times, it has saved me thousands in many hobbies.

It just seems so scary, like THE reckoning, or THE devil. Just mentioning THE wife to another man makes them shudder and lowers their guard and BOOM! You just scored a good deal.

At least that's my line of thinking.

I can understand the first part about cleaning tools, but I absolutely will never buy a woman jewely because it goes against my moral code and my personal philosophy. Not to mention, if you buy a woman jewelry there is no end in sight, it would be like buying an addict heroin, he will always expect more, no end in sight...

A worthless rock that some con-man found on the ground and was able to convince the women of the world that it is worth 4 months salary and if a man won't buy it for her he's a snake, I want no part of that.

If you know the history of De Beers and what they did to the Boers in South Africa, you'll never look at diamonds the same way. Keep in mind that diamonds are not even rare, there are millions upon millions of them, De Beers and other companies simply warehouse them in vaults, keeping them off the market, to create artificial shortages.


If you read the Scriptures of the Old Testament and the Letters of Paul, it is clear that jewelry is simply a vanity. It is a way for a woman to broadcast to society, "look at how much the man I am with spends on me." I don't want any part of that lifestyle.


With that said, there's nothing wrong with a particularly expensive gift, but I'd prefer it be personal and meaningful. If you know your wife of 15 years thoroughly enjoyed a particular book as a child and it was her absolute favorite book, it might be worth considering finding a first edition of said book, even if you have to hit up a number of book dealers and find one who has a book that old. I have a number of books that are 100+ years old and some that are around 150+ years old. If she really enjoyed a board-game that has been out of production since the 1970s, I wouldn't object to spending the time to track down an original first production run of the game.

But jewelry, never!

The last sentimental type gift was taking an old gold watch that had belonged to her mom and having it restored/repaired, the face was cracked and clasp broken
I think that was at like 15

guns/ammo/jewelry.....hubby doesn't get in my way on any of those.
and he didn't bat an eye when I saw some earrings found at Pompeii and said I must have that. I bought the 10mm south sea pearls and the design is now being implemented by a local artisan in 22k gold. i'll consider it our 10 year anniversary present. not romantic you say? is to me. wish fulfillment is different for everyone.

I never look at jewelry as a way to broadcast anything to society. That is just absurd. Nice jewelry is just nice jewelry and it doesn't have to be a big rock to make it good or thoughtful. I love the fact that my husband has taken time to find something he thinks I might like. Personally, I like dainty jewelry.

Once again, we are all different. If your wife loves an old board game or a book, so be it. Get it for her. However, I don't think it makes a woman vain nor a social climber because she likes jewelry. No need to thump people over the head with a bible because they wear jewelry.

so it does, Tripper, so it does.
what does she talk about, dream about, point out in movies/books/magazines? i'm betting there is something she has hinted at. however, I have to say that I learned to say, "I like it but its not something I want" because my hubby thinks if I like something I want it. not true!!!!!!!!!

Believe me, if I wanted to "thump" you over the head, I would have quoted/posted a dozen different passages, chapter and verse.

I don't believe making a passing reference to a general theme in scripture, constitutes "thumping" somebody over the head.

No thumping! We don't thump here. Well, not all that much, but we do try to play nice.

When I want something that I really really want I get it. No questions asked. Like my last rifle purchase.

I was in the store picking up something and I asked the guy, 'Do you have....., he said yes, I said, 'kin ah hold it pwease'
He said, 'Sure, lil lady, here ya are.'

Was love at first hold.

I said, 'Wrap it up and put a scope on it and I be back in 10 days'

Plunked down the cash and l love my new toy!

Of course, there was accessories to buy for it, which was fun too!

ah, a woman like many of us here in this forum.

for the record, I may be one of the few people who didn't like Hawaii. I don't like hot/humid weather and oddly I got vertigo.....felt better out on a boat looking at the land! weird, I know......

has she never mentioned wanting to travel anywhere?
have you traveled anywhere with her and she mentioned how much she enjoyed it?
where did you get married?
is she an outdoors person?
does she like museums?
hobbies?
send me a PM if you don't want to divulge too much info on the internet.

I am not fond of humidity either Zombie. I do like Hawaii, but the sticky part can be miserable at certain times of year. I resolve to wearing hats to hide my hideous hair and light clothes when I am there. I couldn't live in humidity for sure. All of my heavy jewelry would stick to my skin!

Getting ready to have a ring made for myself, so son and daughter have equal pickin's when we kick off.

She's never mentioned traveling really
But, when we do any kind of traveling she does enjoy it
We have never discussed Hawaii, I just thought of it as a popular destination

Most recently, I mentioned a cruise, and she started sort of looking into it, I'm just not sure if she looked into it because I mentioned or because its something she would like to do

If she didn't mention it, it could be entirely because you mentioned it. You might want to figure out which it is.


A cruise is so bland. If you step back and think about it, a cruise is the equivalent of being stuck in a hotel that you can't leave for two weeks. It's just a floating hotel packed with lots of strangers.


I'd go for something outside of the box and away from 4,000 strangers who are going to crowd your personal space.


Raft down the Colorado River.

Hike through Yellowstone or McKinley National Park.


Something like that.

if she hasn't expressed an interest in rafting, don't do it!
if she hasn't expressed an interest in hiking, don't do it!
after this many years I would hope she has retained some interests and expresses them. listen!!!!!!!!!!
or even just ask her what she'd like to do to celebrate.
and you could even ask her friends!
if you're really interested in making this about her, then make it about her.
perhaps she's gone along with your ideas all these years?
or maybe she really is interested in the very same things and will be happy with what you decide to do?
or maybe you could both make this decision with her?
talk to her about a cruise....perhaps Alaska? i'm not a cruise person but that is one i'd consider doing.

what is an example of things you've done with her in the past? perhaps repeat one of those.

I have gone on a total of one cruises in my life. I took the gkids on the Disney Dream when it launched. We are taking the next two in March. Honestly, I HATE cruises. But the Disney thing is fun.

Hawaii is lovely certain times of year. My favorite island is Kauai. It is green and lush on the Princeville side and warm and tropical on the Poipu side. Lots of things to do and see and beautiful hiking everywhere. Lovely waterfalls you can take a picnic to and do a little swimming. June, July and August are stinking hot and humid. October through March are a bit less humid and very lovely. Rent a convertible and leave the top down. Rain or shine you will love driving with the top down and enjoy the panoramic view.

Very romantic trip for two. However stay in Poipu or Princeville. Steer clear of staying anywhere near Coconut Grove area and Lihue. My son went to VRBO and found a beautiful condo in Princeville very reasonable with a big Master and Kitchen and a short walk to a private beach. They stayed for a week, shopped at Costco, made their own meals. A couple of fun dinners out and they spent very little money.

Guy I worked with called his wife "the biscuit burner"

I call my wife
'Louise", "she who must be obeyed", and a couple well-deserved times: "the she-bear".

I get her laughing when I suggest she call me "master"

Off topic is better than no topic at all.

Ladies Forum is dead.

When one of my engineering professors [math] cautioned us against "going off on a tangent," I asked, "would it be permissible for us to go off on a cosine?"

If you know the history of De Beers and what they did to the Boers in South Africa, you'll never look at diamonds the same way. Keep in mind that diamonds are not even rare, there are millions upon millions of them, De Beers and other companies simply warehouse them in vaults, keeping them off the market, to create artificial shortages.
Very Interesting Article on Diamonds http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rohin-...b_3708562.html

My rock is 200lbs and 6' tall.

Can someone explain to me why guys refer to their SO as "the wife"?



"The Wife" as in: "The Wife, and Kids".
