What shall I buy my wife for Christmas?

Postby actuallyadad » Wed Nov 15, 2017 11:29 am

Hello
So I'm sort of in a Christmas present rut! Basically I always buy fairly typical stuff like jewelry, handbags, shoes etc all of which she likes.

And I can easily do the same again...apparently one can never have enough of those and she is always happy with them and (I think) I know what she likes.

Just wondered if any body has any more slightly unusual ideas?

Ok so nothing with a plug (obviously) and up to 500 quid or so is fine.

All thoughts appreciated!
Thanks

A weekend away - without kids if you have them - is always a winner! Maybe somewhere with a nice spa in January, which is always a dreary month.

What about a course about one of her hobbies, interests or passions? Loads of options there.

how about six month's worth of monthly massages done at home (I recommend Francesca Walsh - £70 a session, absolute heaven and really effective for sore backs)

What a lucky wife to have such a thoughtful husband!

You can buy a bespoke perfume customisation from Floris within your budget.

I bought this for my sister for a milestone birthday and she loved it! I was able to join her and the whole experience was really brilliant. She now has her very own unique scent that she can re-order when ever she runs out.

How about something a little sentimental, an illustration of your Family Home, the place where you first met, or your kids (if you have!)

Guaranteed brownie points!

Hi there,
I am a personal stylist offering gift vouchers for any of my services. Having a styling session, wardrobe clear out or colour analysis is the gift that keeps on giving as it makes shopping fig clothes easier, pinpoints the best pieces for your lifestyle, shape and colouring and ultimately saves money too!
Have a look at my website for my details:

If she is a keen reader she might like a subscription book service. I think several bookshops do them, e.g. ones that spring to mind are Heywood Hill bookshop and Libreria bookshop. You would need to tell them some details about your wife's tastes and then, every month for a year, they send her a specially selected book. I guess this would only suit a passionate reader.

Does she like Espresso Martins or Bloody Marys ?

Local firm Bloody Bens has a couple of gift packs using the Bloody Mary Mix recipe which they made on St. John's Hill a few years back.

I'm not a big Bloody Mary drinker but it's actually amazing in cooking. I think it's because it's got balsamic, Worcester sauce, garlic, horseradish & celery salt etc. I marinaded chicken and steaks & it was delicious; really softened the meat.

How about a flower subscription - Bloom and Wild or Freddies Flowers do these, there's probably other companies too. Fresh flowers every month (or fortnight or week if you're feeling very flush).

Massage vouchers or bespoke perfume would also be great. Or at least, I'd love them (hopefully my husband is reading...!)
