40th anniversary edition (wifes 40th)
I need help! Wife's 40th is coming up in roughly 30 days!

What I know:

My 40th = '02 x-star and a dinner plus a vintage mahogany skateboard

Her expectations/request:

No big parties. Small family and maybe a friend.

*****Nothing boat related...

Trips - form of time share
SUV - form of New Expedition or the out of budget Lexus 570

I need to give her something while we wait for the new Expedition to come out!!!! The Timeshare deal is not something I can just buy her.

Need help!

My thoughts:

Host a small dinner (9 people)
Provide Food, her favorite Cake, her favorite wine

And then what? The above sounds like a regular birthday. I suck at this stuff!

I'd say set up a houseboat trip on one of those killer reservoirs you guys have but I heard they're empty. Summer in SE Michigan is starting to look more attractive if we can ever get past the never ending winter. Horrible winter snow fall translates into full lakes come spring!

Technically I DID (well the lower end of one) - but if she ever finds out I'll not need to worry about this party!

So wait did she get you your x star for your birthday? Lol

Get her something for you disguised as a present for her! Such as a new wake board!

Get her a day of her own, away from you and the kids (if you have them).

My wife loves the whole spa thing. Massage, getting her nails done and then do dinner in the evening? It easy, but I guess you have to have a wife that enjoys stuff like this...

We can't tell you. Only you know your wife. My ex was a high maintenance person who needed everything for show. You should know what will make her day. If not........let's not go there.
