    25th Anniversary ideas needed

    I was hoping that my DW would have caught the bug for a gun by now, but alas, she has not. My goal if she had would be to buy her something nice for her pocket or purse (Beretta, Ruger, Glock , etc) but I believe that would now be a terrible idea.

    Because of our kids, I can't take her away. About all I can do is out for dinner.

    She says she doesn't want anything, and she spends her free time on Dementia support forums, Etc.

    Any ideas out there?

    Don't do anything at all. When the big day arrives act like you forgot.

    Buy a First Aid Kit for yourself. You're gonna need it.

    How about donating to a dementia research charity in her name?

    Traditionally, silver is the appropriate gift for a 25th wedding anniversary.

    I recommend a stainless Sig P239.

    If she's not into guns, then I recommend

    • Fix dinner for her and forbid her to help out. Use sparkly silver glitter on flowers, cards, centerpieces, gift wrap, balloons, etc. Set the table with a paper silver tablecloth, rent china and crystal with a silver or chrome trim, use silver looking votive candles, place flowers in silver colored vases.

    • Renew your marriage vows.

    • Plan a picnic with paper silver-colored plates and cups.

    Don't forget the CHAMPAGNE!

    That's something I have not thought about, except the donation would be small. Our medical bills are typically some peoples annual salary.

    I will have to look up what a Kate Spade is, but a spa day might be nice. She usually has 2 or 3 gift certificates lying around for massages but a whole day? Thanks

    I like the stainless Sig idea. :(

    I had forgotten that it was the silver anniversary. Those food ideas are good

    I did a Spa day, everything included. It was greatly appreciated for weeks after.



    My wife packed my bags and said "GET OUT!!!".
    As I walked out the front door, she screamed,"I wish you a slow and painful death, you *******!""Oh," I replied, "so now you want me to stay!" (wink)...

    If she says she doesn't want anything--she wants something!

    I'm not into the renewing vows. Said them once and been in trouble ever since. Treat her like she deserves to be treated. She be happy, you'll be happy, and you won't have to worry about it until next year!

    Rumor has it that chicks dig Geiger counters.

    (Thanks, Patti!)



    How about a week's worth of deep massages? Haven't met too many folks who don't gush over the idea of being pummeled and pampered. Better still, a week's worth of deep massage courses for yourself, so you can give the gift that keeps on giving.

    I have suggested this before, but with her fear of heights, a ladder becomes a scary thing

    Some good ideas so far, maybe I will have to do a combo of some of these.
    I could giver her a Coach bag with Champagne in it, which would be the only way to get her in an airplane. Where we will have a mile high picnic on silver settings, Then as we jump, we could use smaller sails so we hit a little hard on a trampoline so as we bounce we would be feeling like a deep tissue massage. When the bouncing stops she might want to point her new stainless Sig at me and hopefully she would miss from all the champagne. At which point I will pull out a first aid kit and claim it was not my idea, because I forgot. As I run because she continues to fire at me, I will yell But wait, we still have to renew our vows.

    Sorry, I couldn't fir it the geiger counter.
