Anniversary Present

Recommended Posts

nuff sed

What can I get for my wife for 51st anniversary? I got her a new set of chrome pipes for her '96 Impala SS for Mother's Day. (She had said that she would like a set sometime before that) Then she wanted a new battery for the Weed Whacker....so I bought one ($30+) and said "Happy Anniversary" She gave me $50 last week and said, "Buy what you want for your anniversary.".... so it looks like if I spent another 20 bucks we are even. Any suggestions.??...Oh yes, we can use the $25 worth Of Olive Garden coupons (I got for giving blood) to go out to supper that night except that I have a meeting both that night and the following. Decisions, decisions....

She sounds very practical- my kind of person!!!

Get her something romantic- like a night in a hotel room that has a jacuzzi. Scented candles, body butter, and YOU <img src="/adventist/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I know I'd be impressed if it happened to me!

Bless you for thinking of her so

Welcome, Glad! I think I detect a bit of humor in this post! I think maybe you're pulling our collective leg!

But it's neat having a new voice here amongst all us oldies.

And Gail is probably correct: What your Wifey might love is a jacuzzi bath in a fancy hotel, followed by a massage with "body butter" [mmmm! sounds exotic!].

If you've really been married 51 years, that's some kind of RECORD! I bet not many of us on CA can match that one!

Enjoy each other. Do things together as long as you can. You never know when your companionship might end prematurely. So pack in as much LIVING as possible, before it's too late.

[i'm jealous.....!]

I also think that you are pulling our leg(s).

So, from the perspective that you began, why don't you purchase a new vacumn for her. That will show her you interest in getting the house cleaner than she has recently been able to do.

Now that's NOT a good idea for an anniversary present!! <img src="/adventist/images/graemlins/wub.gif" alt="" /> Unless you want to sleep on the couch for a week or so..... <img src="/adventist/images/graemlins/couch2.gif" alt="" />

Curious; what did you buy with your $50?

Show her you love her--whack the weeds, polish the chrome. Take her to dinner, but NOT to the Olive Garden. Show her that what you want is her and not monetary things. So, spend the $50 on her, and then, spend another $50 on her again.

One other thing...after 51 years, you still have to ask what to get her???? Surely, you know her better than that!

Most anniversary or birthday presents for my wife revolve around the collection of either Noah's Ark or Precious Moments. My wife generally gives me money for MY birthday because no matter what she gives me I have already found it in a thrift shop for less than half the retail price. (I just LOVE thrift shops ) It is amazing some of the things I have found there... I bought one of the "Colporteur Editions of Conflict of the Ages" series ( 12 volumes -$400) for $12 about a month ago. Regards, Gladussee

What's all this changing screen names in the middle of the thread??!!

:D

Just joking, of course. You, Donaldridge, evidently were formerly calling yourself Gladussee. And Maps118. (Right?)

Oh well, whoever you are, keep posting! And have a wonderful 52nd year of marriage....

[You and your wife balance each other's tastes perfectly. You remind me of "Jack Spratt who could eat no fat, and his wife could eat no lean -- so between the two of them, they licked the platter clean!"]
