I'm in a little bit of a pickle. My 5th wedding anniversary is tomorrow and I have no idea what to get my wife. The traditional present is "wood". Any idea's or suggestions they would be greatly appreciated. Please, please help me out here!

I would get her a tree and ask her to plant it. That would give the two of you many years of enjoyment. :D

You can BLOW that traditional Hallmark crap. Take her out to an expensive resturante, drink some wine and tell her how much you love her with tears in your eyes. Talk about your wedding day and how she looked when you saw her coming down the isle to meet with you. Be a ROMANTIC!

The old saying "its the thought that counts" really is true....maybe more true when you are dealing with a gift for your wife. It is not necessarily important what you buy, just that it is something she has told you she wanted, or something she is interested in. That's what I have learned in my 10 years of marriage!

Pearl earrings are always nice. With a dinner out.

being romantic does not work with my wife...

sent her roses last year for Mother's day... but where I screwed up was signing the card.
"We Love You, Brian & the kids"

had them sent to her office, and she brought up during an argument that the only reason I did it was to pat myself on the back.

on our 18th Anniversary, I rented the honeymoon suite of a brand new motel...
being in a small town, I was the first to rent it, it was that expensive....(something like $230.00 a night)
Large mirrored whirlpool bath, champagne, roses, stainless ice bucket, crystal glasses, music, oils, lotions, bath beads, chocolates, desserts, spa & massage....all waiting on us when we arrived, arranged babysitter, you name it!
I made several trips and phone calls to this place beforehand, making sure everything was in order....

well, come Sunday evening after going home.... she told me the only reason I did that was because I was thinking of myself.

This 18th. Anniversary was a special one for me.... just for the simple fact that people gave us a week:rolleyes:


heck, just found a pic of the room, the space is more than twice as large as shown

You can be traditional, and romantic.

Buy a small (it can even be cheap) wooden jewelry box, and buy her something nice to put in it.
