    I took about 30 seconds. Always give her a funny card, never a serious one.

    You're sweet to get her a card. :)

    In the past, I was big on giving cards "just because" and on most holiday/special occasions. I've evolved over time, not so heavy into cards these days.

    My wife would rather get the card than the jewelry. I learned early on not to forget the card, and even more important, to act like I care about the card she bought for me.

    I totally get what you're saying--I'm sure my wife would love to get the kinds of cards I gave her when we were dating--it's been 15 LONG years though.

    I love getting cards and artwork from my daughter--I prefer that to purchased gifts. :D

    I heart elvis!
