Gifts For the Ladies

Recommended Posts

Ok ladies,
you know most of us guys have a tough time getting gifts for you.

Please tell us what you'd really like to see your significant other get you before the year ends.

We need some serious help. Get your friends on here so they can let us know.

Thanks for any light you can shed on this for us. We're looking for multiple opinions.

So jump in Ladies, pretty please?

I just got a whole new computer with an/ all in one scanner copier printer and a digital camera as soon as I figure out what kind to get from my sweet heart. He knew I needed something to keep me busy with winter coming. The old computer took for ever to get any where and I spent a lot of time just waiting for things to open this one is great it opens right now. Yes I have the best husband in the whole world.

Here is a few hints for you gise. Most women want gifts that in some way lets them know they are loved. This varies depending on the person and that is the one thing you have to learn from them. Some women want personal gifts such as jewelry, perfume or clothing if you know the right size and her taste. Some women like house hold appliances that help make their work at home faster and easier. Be careful here some women don't find this very personal.

I guess for me I would like a prepaid cell phone. That would be a nice gift if she don't already have one. It would tell her that you care especially with winter coming and she could call you from any where.

Good luck, Finding that right gift can be hard. Your best bet might be to ask her what she wants. <><Mary><>

What ever you do don't buy her pans or appliances unless she asks for them!!!! I worked retail for a long time and saw a lot of men get in trouble with this one!

How about a digital camera my husband gave me one last Christmas and I love it! Now if I could just catch that big fish to take the picture of to send to all my friends! Or how about my favorite gold and diamonds - my personal favorite? I am one that does not care for flowers - I like something I can keep and use. So my advice is know your lady's tastes.

I also have some advice for you women which comes from years of retail experience. No matter what he buys you (unless it is the wrong size) do not take it back and exchange it for something else! I can not tell you how many men told me they quit buying their wives gifts because they just exchanged them anyway. So keep it and hope for better next time. Good luck with your shopping! Now do any of you have any idea for my husband? The one that has no interests except horses - no sports etc. although he did start fishing this year - because I forced him into it.

Well of the top of my head, here's a few ideas:

1) A new laptop computer, and a study to keep it safe.

2) A PT Cruiser, preferably in black.

3) Spending money (a lot)

Those are just the stocking fillers, of course, when I think of more, I'll let you know.

Hi Delmuts!
We have quarter horses which we showed for many years in pleasure classes. Now we mostly raise foals and he likes to trail ride. He goes with a bunch of guys to Tucson every year for 2 weeks in the winter. The problem with all your ideas is that I use to manage a western shop so needless to say he has all of the things you mentioned and much more. He did mention a new Duramax Diesel crew cab! Yeah right - he has not been that good this year.

Gifts for guys - that $100 gift cert to Cabelas or Fleet Farm will go along ways toward buying that item thats just out of range and is on the list for next year. And you just have to ask, guys that hunt and fish always have more gear they need. Some of the my most functional gifts (my ice king boots and my heavy archery camo) are gifts from my wife.

Hey Delmuts - since you have been soooooo good I sure hope Santa is good to you! cool.gif
The Fleet Farm is a good gift certificate for women as well as men. That is what my daughter wants.
But my husband does not hunt, ice fish or watch football and only fishes because I drag him out there. Looks like he will get another pair of cowboy boots this year.

As I am looking out the window at the ice and wind and cold I know what I want for Christmas. A three month fishing tour of the south - or should I say 5 month!

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • Wow, I didn’t realize the lake was under that intense of pressure. I suppose I will try elsewhere if most of the trout have been taken out. Thanks for the advice! 
    • ...LOL, I did it again on Sunday as well. I used 21-40 ct shrimp and grilled up some chicken breast ahead of time that were added before the pan went on the grill.... pretty spot on!
    • Thanks for coming back with a review. They look like they should work well but I'm wondering if they allow slack in the line at the trip and let the fish off the hook?  I use dipsy's and a few other divers for deep trolling Walleye's in late summer.  Fun stuff when their out there. 🙂
    • All the little Trout ponds around the cities get hit like this on opener. More or less a "Put and take" fishery.  
    • Wow that is some high density fishing pressure!!!
    • This is a couple years old but I happened to stumble on it again today and I’m not really a big fan of the slide divers myself after giving them a shot. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but they seem more of a hassle than just the plain old, but effective, Dipsy diver     
    • Like he said. After opening weekend there may be few fish left.  Here's a little view why! 😉        
    • Welcome to the forums.   There is another company here in Minnesota that gets used a lot called Mattracks that you may want to look up. What size motor do you have? It takes a pretty good size motor to turn these tracks and get any speed out of them.   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjohMjdlYbjAhWPGM0KHSFVAFoQFjAAegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mattracks.co%2F&usg=AOvVaw0l1s0-KJl2XMVmGU069TQt  
    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
