What should i buy my wife for her 63rd birthday?

Asked by john65pennington (29235points) July 2nd, 2010

Last year, for her birthday, i took the lazy way out and gave my wife a gift card. she accepted it, BUT i received that certain look women give, when they think you could have made a trip to Macys, instead. i will not do that this year. instead, i need your suggestions for what my wife would love to receive. i want to give her something really special. hopefully, not clothes, but something she will remember her 63 rd birthday for. Question: whats a unique gift to give my wife for her 63rd birthday, coming July 6th?

Books are always a good idea if she’s an avid reader.

Tickets to some very special event that you would usually not be too excited about. Showing her your willingness to cater to her interests is usually a very big thing to most women.

Reservations for a really nice dinner to a place she wouldn’t usually splurge on but has food that you know she appreciates (eg: a fine seafood restaurant or whatever type of cuisine or chef she especially enjoys.)

Well, this is the start of her 64th year of life.
A boxed set perhaps.

Try to find and buy the original single of The Beatles.

Either a gemstone ring or dinner and nice hotel for the night.

I have to follow this question closely, my wife’s 63rd is coming up in October. I have a lot to make up because I was laid up (July 2nd) for our 44th anniversary.

@john65pennington @Ron_C Hey guys, you could bring your ladies over for a memorable time. It’s a great city.

@lloydbird too bad the invitation is so late. I would have liked to visit. On the otherhand if you get your wife a really good present, it might be a standard that I could not meet.

Maybe next year. Our anniversary is on July 2nd and next year is our 45th anniversary. Now you have me thinking.
