What do you get a woman who has put her life on hold, a woman who took my kids all 5 of them and loved them as much as I do...She has enough jewlry to last 2 lifetimes.
Any suggestions-My son is fixing us dinner tonight.

That's wonderful Rick. I hope he's a good chef! My mom still does dinner most of the time. She's wary of my cooking.. my dishes are either "edible" or.... not.
Your wife sounds like an amazing person. How about a gift certificate to a spa? Or a photo album with personal messages from you and the kids and fam about how wonderful she is? Online they have photo "books" you can create and personalize.

I remember that you asked a question very similar to this last year. Of course, the best gift of all is that she still has you by her side a year later!
I don't remember what I said last year but I think you should write her a letter telling her exactly how you feel about her and all she has done for you and your children. Tell her how much you love her and how much more she means to you after all your years together. Give her the letter and one red rose. Believe me, it will mean far more to her than all her jewelry ever could.
I still at times get out the letters and notes Ray wrote to me on different occasions. Sometimes I laugh and other times I cry, but the words he wrote especially for me are so special that they never fail to move me.
Give it some thought. Happy anniversary, Rick!

First thing you better do is take back the snow shovel you told me you got her, the pink one.

I'm sure she already knows how lucky she is to have you and your family in her life. Sometimes words are all we need to make us feel special.
Whatever you plan to celebrate will be appreciated. Hold her hand, tell her how much you love her, and how much she means to you. After my diagnosis of pc, I found that hearing those words from my husband were better than any monetary gift I could receive.

Get her a beautiful big cashmere shawl/pashmina. Make sure that it is made of CASHMERE! Every woman loves cashmere and you cant have anoff of it!
