  • What does your wife ask of you all the time? To give her half an hour of your undivided attention?  Clean the basement? Do the grocery shopping?  Remodel the bathroom? Make a coupon book with a few coupons for each of the things (except remodels…she’ll only need one of those) she wants most from you…it won’t cost a thing but the rewards will be well worth it…as long as this isn’t her ONLY GIFT!
  • A romantic trip
  • One of the best gifts my husband ever got me was a wardrobe-replacement-budget. I had met my weight-loss goal and he gave me the money to refresh my wardrobe. The fun lasted well into February!

 

And guess what I just realized? Oprah DOES have something on me…about 80 more gift ideas on her Favorite Things List.
