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! Prices have dropped, and power has improved, so you can get a great reader for very little money
