So I need a gift for my wife...

Yea...it's that time of year.

Problem: We're been together for 8+ years so there isn't anything left to get her that would be original.

Her solution: She wants something homemade/crafty instead of me going and spending money on something she will not use or doesn't need.

My reaction: FUCK MY LIFE - complete blank!


I have no idea what to get her...nor what to make her. She's turning 27.



Any help from those that have been in my shoes???

Handgun with custom grips (inlaid pearl with your anniversary date!).

How about something like a coupon book. Cheesy but she'd love it.
Things like breakfast in bed, massage, date night, clean the house.

What about photos? Get some printed, framed up? You could even get some printed in a fridge magnet form as well.

There is always a mixed tape.......

^^ This works like a charm; and is cheap-as-chips too.

I've done pics...and mixtapes like 8 years ago. Pretty creative though...my ide of being creative sucks.

If it was up to me...I'd fuck up and buy her anal beads or same shit like that. Very Homer Simpson I am...bowling ball with my fingers sized...

Shit hit Ikea buy something and build it when you get home in like 10min!
Then have her bring you a beer and make love on said new item!
Or buy her a Liberator and tell her it's for her to use when she is reading....

Two suggestions:

1) Transform photos into something she likes (phone case, calendar, mugs, etc.). My wife loves the pewter Christmas tree ornaments that shutterfly does: http://www.shutterfly.com/photo-gifts/ornaments . But there are a lot of options that Kinkos or the online shops can do.

2) Diamonds. Diamonds are ALWAYS appropriate. When in doubt, diamonds. Big ones.

Living close to O-town, have you taken her to a cirque du soleil show yet? They love that crap. La Nouba is supposed to be good.

Make a custom voucher coupon booklet. Each voucher is good for one use for example:

She can tear off a "Husband will wash dishes" voucher or "Husband will cook tonight" just maker like 10 of them that have an expiration date to let her know it's real! haha


OR

Make a scrapbook of memorable days you guys have had but instead of pictures use items. For example, I saved the receipt of me and my girls first date or tickets from a show or a shell from a beach. This shows you've been planning this gift for a long time.

It got me my first lay.... with her at the time. Not that you should have any issues getting laid, or... Good luck!

They like handbags. Women like this Tory Burch shit. They love that brand. Even if you get her the same handbag every year.

Otherwise hit the apple store and get an iPad mini w your anniversary date engraved on it.

Step one: Cut a hole in the box
Step two: Put your junk in the box
Step three: Make her open the box

Scavenger hunt where she picks up little gifts at a time and which will lead to you at a nice restaurant or a nice candle lit dinner at home. Works like a charm

Methinks you have never 'built' anything from Ikea before... or, you are fluent in Swedish.
