    Exclamation Re: Guys, what did you get the girl for Xmas

    Does she get her hair done? If so, a $100 - $150 gift certificate to get her hair colored, cut, etc.....this idea went over big with my wife. Especially since I took the time to go to where she gets her hair done, talk to the lady, etc...Other ideas:

    - Pajamas from VictoriaSecret.com
    - 5 for $5 each underwear from VictoriaSecret.com (good gift for you too)
    - Tanning salon gift certificate
    - Manicure/Pedicure
    - Massage (from a professional)

    Do you have kids? If so, get a $300 gift certificate from the local mall, tell her you'll take care of the kids all day and send her shopping...........................

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Guys, what did you get the girl for Xmas

    Since my wife got this when my parents and sister celebrated Christmas earlier this month, this one is safe to say -

    Isabel Bloom is huge in the Quad Cities area, and I easily picked up on a subtle hint Erin sent my way when we went thru the store earlier this year. Basically, it's a cast concrete sculpture of two doves nuzzling each other:



    My wife has some other fun things coming her way - a couple of movies I know she's looking forward to getting.

    A little Christmas Tree and some ornaments for it.



    (She's from South Korea and has never had a Christmas tree, so that went over pretty well )


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    My fiance told me that if we ever get into a big fight or if I do something wrong, that would be the place to get her something.

    As for Christmas gifts I hate to say it but she made me a list of about 10 things that she wanted. With the wedding coming up and moving into our new house next month we decided only to spend $75. Cheap yes, but we really have alot going on.

    Also great for paper weights, boat anchors, ballast for your two-wheel-drive pickup truck in the winter, medicine balls, wheel chocks, shot puts, and downrigger weights.

    Ah man - I need to get my wife to hang around her and gal for sure. Maybe some of this sports love will rub off.
