Gifts for her

Gifts © luigi diamanti |

A huge thanks to all the ladies who helped us put together a list of items they would like for Christmas. I have put the current list at the bottom, but it will not be updated here. The permanent lists (links below) will be updated:

A couple of thoughts from the ladies to help you – Enlist the help of your wife’s friends or other people who might know what she needs.  For example, I know of one husband who knew where his wife got her makeup, and one day after she went to work, he gathered up all her makeup and skin care, took it to the place where she got it, and the lady there helped him buy everything that she was getting low on or suggested new products based on what she already had. If she shops in a small shop or a local place where the proprietors get to know their customers, they might be more helpful than you’d expect.  If she generally shops at a big box store, you’re probably out of luck there.

► Gifts for Her ◄

This list of gifts is based on what women on The Generous Wife have suggested, with a few additions or specific suggestion added by Lori and me. Many of the links are monetised, so using them will help us. Where possible, links are to a search page for the item listed. 

Many merchants allow you to create “wish lists.” (Amazon for example) Check to see if a wish list is public or private (usually you can do either) or can be seen by a limited group of people.

There are many holiday specials (shop on-line at your favourite stores) and great coupon deals through companies like Groupon.

Dark, handmade, etc. (try GodivaRomanicos Chocolate, Sees Candies, or personalise some M&Ms)



  • Kobo
  • Nook
  • Kindle – I got Lori a Kindle early on and she loved it. Then she won a newer version and gave me her old one, and I love it too. If you read a lot, this will likely pay for itself in lower book costs. It will also save a lot of bookshelf space and make your carry-on luggage lighter!

  1. Gourmet Chocolates

    Try this site for gourmet chocolates.
    The location is out in the country from a country town on the middle east side of Indiana and the chocolate is wonderful.
