My wife needs a hobby. Impossible to shop for w/o a hobby!

See, I guess I do know a "hobby" of hers but I cannot think of anything to get.

She is the one who makes the photo albums and calendars and such. She and I both are artists. She is a graphic designer/professor by trade.

I was embarrassed once... never again!

I do what KiltedBrewer does and make notes starting in the fall.

You're screwed then. What ever you do, do not buy her a vacuum cleaner.

I know mine's hobbies all too well but that is what I have been buying her for years now and this year wanted to do something different but I am stumped too. Have you been out to the stores and just walk around? That is what I plan to do after work one night and usually something comes up as a good idea. One thing she buys me just about every year (among other things) is a nice high quality pillow for my stiff necks. Good luck.

I love those gourmet cook shops in the malls, lots of neat stuff in there.

I agree!

Instead of a vacuum, I bought her a crock pot. We'll see how that goes.

Yup. Just got back when I posted this. I find myself doing that every year and it is an extremely painful depressing experience.

I like to do my shopping early, and as such, get it done early. I picked out a handfull of things I knew she wanted- the last season of Sopranos, Wii Fit, Dark Knight... And a couple fun things I know she would enjoy- a couple CD's the Godfather collection, the new rayman game...

What sucks is I put out my stack of presents, she put out hers, then every night for the last couple her stack for me keeps getting bigger... She is still buying crap!!!!

Oh well, I already got her stuff, I guess I will just get more



prepares bed with the dogs....
