    Default When you have been married for 44 years what do you get your wife?

    We normally ask each other what the other one wants for Christmas or we buy something that both of us want together.

    I wanted to do something different this year though. A few years ago she bought me a new wedding band which I thought was nice. I don't wear it every day as I wear the original band.

    So, I thought I would get her new wedding rings. She always asked me why do guys if they get divorced go out and buy the new wife a big rock? I tell her it's because they can afford something better now.

    Anyway, we will see if this was a good idea. I know she will say I shouldn't have; but, if she does that I am going to take her out to the garage and show her the ACR and ZR1 and remind her she told me to buy those if that's what I wanted.

    Pure Class. Way to go.

    She's going to have a big smile on her face.

    Half the fun of Christmas presents is being able to show them off to their friends.

    Hit this one out of the park!

    Got my sweetheart a iPhone 4S. Nowhere near as romantic, but at least this way I can track here whearabouts : >)

    That is funny! And I am sure she will enjoy it as long as you don't give away the secret.

    I have a covert tracking device we throw on suspects vehicles and I had it on her car for a couple of weeks testing it. (And she knew it was there). I finally removed it when she got home one day and said she had been shopping and I pulled it up on the map showing exactly where she parked.

    Very nice. About five years ago my wife and I decided that instead of giving each other gifts at Christmas/Hanukkah ( we still exchange cards) that we would instead make an additional gift to a charity. This year we made a donation which will allow a local organization to buy a year of toys for at risk children who are brought in after they are removed from their "homes" due to abuse.
    Since we started doing this, the holiday season has taken on additional meaning.

    Nice one John. I just bought my wife of 44 years a candle lighter, an 85% chocolate bar and a tube of hand creame. Not just any candy bar, an organic one from the local health store mind you. $4.95 plus tax.

    This is so nice and sad at the same time. Sad, in that children are fragile enough growing up and then to have to put up with abuse.

    I usually buy books for her as she is an avid reader, unlike me. I only read a book if I am on a plane.
