    thank you all for the quick answear
    i agree with jewelry because i know no woman in this earth refuse them in Xmas or in other day but is their other things more special i mean more sentimental for example drawing a card, singing a song make a poeme, make a special t-shirt, (make a baby) ...etc. I buy a white gold ring and i want to give other thing or do u thing that that's enogh?

    She will love the ring, lockman. You could also get her a few "little' things, such as a box of yummy chocolates, her favorite candy bar, a pretty glass candle, a gift certificate to her favorite store or to a salon where she can go to be pampered. A card and poem is special, too. Very sweet and she would have to be touched and flattered.

    Happy first Christmas! :-)
    Peace,

    Take some good advice from a guy who has been married for 30 something years......

    Don't buy her anything....whatever you get it will be wrong.

    Your best bet is buy her something that you personaly want for yourself then when she tells you she doesn't like it or complains about it you get to keep it for yourself

    Us romantic guys always get the correct presents
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.

    Whatever you do DO NOT get her Lingerie. Odds are it will be the wrong size and you will pay for it for years. Don't ask me how I know this lol A victoria secret gift certificate is much better. Let her pick out her own lingerie

    Okay, so I take it you're not living in the U.S.?

    One thing I've noticed that expatriates have in common is they miss certain foods they loved in their homeland that they can't find in their new country. Does your wife ever talk about how she misses things like maple syrup or blueberries or a particular brand of peanut butter? Just a thought.

    Perfect idea. A pretty bag filled with American goodies. :-) When I lived in Rome, I missed so many things and anyone who came from the states for a vist had to drag food with. My sister lives in Geneva and flies in twice a year just to stock her cupboards with American food products. We'd beg people in the American military to take us to the APO stores to get goodies.

    A big fistful of cash. As big a wad as you can hold without popping your knuckles out of their sockets.

    Be prepared, though. A few days later she'll ask for more. It's the American Woman Way.

    Anything for her comfort. Do you live where it is cold? Warm, soft comfy slippers.
    Anything romatic flowers, music, candles, chcolate, bubble bath (Jump in with her!)
    Anything pretty for her adornment jewelry, scarves, nightgowns, pretty robes

    Don't be cheap! If you get her slippers, stuff them with CASH!

    She probably spent all her spare change on YOU!

    I'm giving my husband some accessories for his iPod and some books and DVDs he wants.

    I'm getting a set of copper Cuisinart cookware, earrings and a comedy CD.

    What is it that you THINK you want to buy your wife? Coz I thnk it's time to stop thinking and time to start shopping. You have what we call "analysis paralysis" in the U.S.

    So what did you end up giving her? Inquiring minds want to know... LOL

    I gave hubby a coffee grinder with lots of coffee beans, so he can have fresh coffee every morning. (it's what he wanted)

    He gave me a new set of telephones. (I need the phones, but I wish he would have given me diamonds! )
