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!

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
