    2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X Limited with all the goodies. She got it early of course. Can't hide it in the closet or wrap it and put it under the tree. Unlike the year she got me a Porsche 1:64 scale of course.

    Mine has been mentioning for a couple years that she'd like a TV hooked up in the bedroom. Our room is big (24x25, I think), so the tv would be pretty far away and I don't really want a huge one in the room so I bought a storage chest that goes at the foot of the bed, and put a 19 " TV that raises up automatically when you lift the lid. If I had more time (All my good Ideas come at the last minute) I would have motorized the lid too. Maybe for mothers' day?

    My wife was the recipient of:
    • A range bag
    • More magazines for her Sig Sauer
    • New electronic ear muffs
    • AND she spent some of the money her father gave her on a new holster!


    Looks like we'll be going to the range again!

    A Canon Rebel XSi DSLR camera and a bunch of accessories.

    I'm sure she will want additional lenses, but then I can turn the question on her: "You have a camera lense, why do you need another lense?"

    Mine is getting some fleece sleepwear (I know, not romantic like Victoria's Secret stuff - it gets cold in NE and she likes warm sleepwear), $150 gift to Kohls for the big after XMAS sales, and the Nintendo Wii that she has been wanting.

    I in turn got a new Stihl MS361 chainsaw for cutting wood for the woodstove to keep her warm. Got it early because my old one crapped out on me.

    I am looking to get her the Kahr PM9 in the spring for EDC as she wants something lighter than her SP101 or my XD40SC that she has taken from me.

    I got mine, and don't laugh 'cause she actually loves this stuff, a food sealer, food dehydrator and some extra mylar bags. I also got her a box set of Celtic Hymns and we will be going to pick out a pistol for her after Christmas.

    I got mine a 37" flat screen HDTV. I added in a Blu Ray player as well.

    Wife insists I did it for myself..... Jeez, men just can't get a woman a gift without being scrutinized...

    That's HILARIOUS! Great cultural contextualization of the message...

    I gave money to her favorite charity, and bought her some chocolate stocking stuffers and a new wool stocking cap

    We decided that we would go together and buy eachother an eliptical excersize machine for the basement. Picked it up 3 weeks ago and I'm already down 5lbs.

    Then I picked her up a new Carhart arctic lined coat, and a couple books (Nascar for dummies and one about mountain snowshoe trails).
