A question for the ladies re Christmas presents.

#1
It is looking as if the present I have on order for my wife will not make it here in time for Christmas.
So I asked the obvious question.She replied "Oh anything,you know what I like" Clearly I don't have a clue.
What is "on trend" this year and will guarantee me some peace and quiet for 11 months until we go through the charade all over again?

look on her dressing table for a perfume bottle which is nearly empty, go to Debenhams/John Lewis/House of Fraser and buy a full up lovely new bottle :) simple

perfume is a good present as it is a luxury item - if you want to go to town get the shower gel/body lotion etc as well.
why is it you don't know what she likes? don't you share a home with her? silk lingerie or something cashmere would show thought - look in her wardrobe and see her size and colour preference. If you have ordered her main present anyway you don't need to spend too much
I read recently a cashmere hat stops the hair going static - see if you can find one. M&S may do one otherwise department stores as in my previous post

Poppys probably on the money here - if you don't know what to get her ask the girls who work on the perfume counters for help, they will have seen hundreds of guys like you especially in this week before christmas.

A nice expensive handbag or pair of shoes usually go down well. Black leather boots are a fave of mine.

What style of jewellery does she usually wear? A nice little set ( do NOT buy cheap crap she'll kill you if her ears turn green) with earrings and a necklace could be a good choice too.

actually I wouldn't advocate buying her a different perfume to what she usually wears - if she hates it she'll be annoyed that you don't know her taste.
personally shoes and handbags are very personal and you are in danger of buying the wrong thing unless you take her shopping or see something on the web and make a note. Same with jewellery - if it's not the main present and you are not sure of her taste avoid!!

on second thoughts maybe you should book a few days holiday to get to know her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If she gets anything she doesn't like though, she can just keep it rewrap it and give it to someone else next year! (that's what seems to happen amongst the ladies in my family anyway - leading to two of them giving each other the gifts they sent to each other the previous year and a lot of moaning behind each others backs :) )

I just opt for money.

Maybe you should just give her your credit card wrapped in a pretty bow vvaannmmann? let her loose on the shops herself - it will be a financial headache but at least you won't have to listen to her if you get it wrong!
