    Several years ago my wife and I agreed to stop getting X-mas gifts for each other, we were both tired of getting stressed out trying to come up with a decent gift idea. It got to the point we were basically saying to each other to just name something we really wanted so we could each then go buy whatever the item the person named. Well this year she threw a wrench in that by letting me know she saw a great gift for me & she had to buy it.

    So even though she said she still doesn't want me to get her anything I don't feel that's a good idea. So instead of asking people I know & she knows for suggestions & getting stupid ideas that never make sense like in past, (I used to wonder if her friends & family knew her at with some of the crazy ideas they would give me) I thought I would try a different approach: See what others bought their wives or girlfriends & maybe see something that I never thought of but she may really like.

    And I know the joke on this forum is that a lot of posters are single and live at home with their parents so I'm aware there will some ridiculous suggestions and that's cool too.

    That's always good. Chicks usually dig smell pretty lotions and potions, too. When I'm really stumped I round her stuff out with a basket filled with new PJs, lotions, candles, and bath salts (not the schmoopy kind).

    If your wives like makeup, skincare, beauty products, get her a 12 month subscription to Glossybox. There are a lot of them, but this one has the best high end products. Not schlock. And don't get the 6 month subscription, you will look cheap. Get the 12 month.
