    Simple...here you go...
    Send flowers to her at her job (it impresses her co-workers and shows them that she has a great marriage and husband), Take her to dinner, at a nice restaurant, (not "Applebees" or "Mayberry Diner"), Give her some little gift only she can use, like perfume or spa gift certificate. You will have a happy wife and better yet you will be a hero. Probably $150.00 tops. Put it on a credit card and pay it off over three months if you have to...it'll be worth it.

    She is a stay at home mom and we will be gone but that is a good idea about the spa gift certificate that way she could get out of the house for a few hours one day or something like that

    Take her out to a nice dinner, movie, go for a walk, get someone to take the kids for the night if possible. Stay in and cook for her (you can do a lot with mac n cheese), get a bottle of wine, rent a movie that she wants to see. After 18 years we have a hard time finding something we want or need (I just want guns and she's doesn't see the need for more guns until I get bit by a radioactive conjoined quadruplet octopus). Our last anniversary we left the kid with her grandparents and got out of town for a couple days (different restaurants and some shopping but mostly time alone together).

    Good Luck and congrats on staying married-an accomplishment in today's society.

    there are things like that but our baby is only six months old and she will not eat out of a bottle and she doesn't like to be away from her for more then a few hours beacuse then she starts to get worried, my parents are going to baby sit this weekend and we will be going out for dinner this weekend. i would like to get away for a few days but she just cant leave for that long and i understand as she spends all day with the baby and i only see her when i get home from work between mowing and doing other things around the house.

    What anniversary is it? Spend as much on her as you did your last gun... Girls like diamonds... Women like Bigger Diamonds... If she's stuck at home with the kids all day, everyday...errr, ohh, ummm...back to diamonds. .. You'll be

    ha ha i gaurantee she would kill me if i got a rod and a reel because she thinks i have enough in the house and in the garage and in the boat, in south dakota you can fish with two rods at a time so if i go out with 3 people in the boat i usually bring at least ten rods for different things and so you dont have to tie a new line everytime u get a snag and it is our 1st and i dont think diamonds will work as they are not in the bank account right now haha

    get her an engraved silver bracelet with your wedding date and initials. something simple but elegant. No need to go all blow out expensive, but something like that is personal and yet at the same time bling she can show her friends. Then take her out to a romantic dinner with wine and steaks, perhaps some classical music in the back ground, and tell her how much your life has been better because she is in it then give her the bracelet.

    Thats some good stuff man, my name should be Dr. Love.
