Bought the g/f a North Face jacket that was 50% off with a coupon I had, a small but nice sterling silver ring, and haven't decided what else yet.

My wife is getting the same thing she got from me last Christmas, nothing. Christmas is for our daughter and we get gifts for her, we are kind of past getting Christmas gifts for each other.

My wife and I agreed many years ago not to exchange gifts at Christmas.
Her idea not mine.

We formally exchanges gift on birthdays and our wedding anniversary.

She gets roses from time to time just for the heck of it.

The last Christmas gift I gave her was a spa day at an expensive salon. She loved it.

Seriously?

Some of you guys do nothing?

The camping gear she gets me and the mags/ammo/holsters I get her are really for both of us and the family. $150 max for each. We keep it a secret and wrap them up for each other and it's fun for the kids to see everyone get gifts.

Everything comes from the normal "to get" list so we aren't spending on shit we wouldn't buy anyway.

Good deals on stuff around Xmas, so why not cross a few things off the list and have fun with it?

Rules...........we have them........

Depends on what they're into. My ex really liked the spa treatment so a gift certificate for a massage and pedicure was the ticket. My current girl has never decorated her house so I'm thinking of some tasteful decorations (which is just an excuse for turning out the lights and taking advantage of the "spirit of the season".

Step one: cut a hole in a box...

Though make sure you keep the names straight as it is awkward if your mom gets the wrong box.

I made and installed some of those at my wife's studio. Bastards are expensive if purchased pre-made. The brackets were pricey.

I plan to teach my wife and mom that the use of an apostrophe in idea's implies ownership of something by idea, and not the pluralization of idea.

G/F and myself were getting odds and ends in Lowes when she saw a really nice flat-top stove and we discussed her getting a new one, as hers was 15-20 yo. She was trying to justify buying it, when a tooth got infected and she had to have an expensive root canal. I went to Lowes Saturday and bought the stove for her present and will give her the receipt [ paid ] with her name and address on it in a nice card, to be delivered the 26th. Win for both as she is a ''country gal'' in her 50's that can sho'nuff cook, and look good doing it.

Get her a nice painting. Women love that shit. I prefer Bob Timberlake out of Lexington, NC. Link

You can get an actual print for $250 and frame it yourself or they will frame for about $200. When I buy my wife one of these painting its the best investment ever, she lets me buy gun stuff for years after with no questions asked :)

Here's a few prints:






These images don't do them justice. Half the time I'm convinced they're pictures instead of paintings. Dude is awesome! He does a bunch of flowers too, which the wifey LOVES! I prefer the outdoor paintings of barns..

Edit: We don't exchange gift either, only stockings for one another. But this year I'm buying her a painting because she has been wanting it for years and years. I have a new gun I want to buy
