Does your husband or significant other never know what to buy you for your birthday or other special occasion? Create a "gift-idea envelope" for each of you.
Whenever you see something you'd like in a magazine or catalogue, cut it out and place it in your envelope. Also write things down on slips of paper and place those in your envelope. Whenever the time comes for gift giving, the person who is buying the gift simply pulls an idea from the envelope. Gift giving made easy!

You can wrap a mirror or a picture of your spouse. Then add a note that says "the most beautiful person I have ever looked at".

This is not very romantic, but it worked for my grandmother-in-law. Her husband used to buy her electric kettles, saucepans, etc. when she wanted something for herself. So she came up with this plan:
Early in October, she would go shopping and pick a ring or a brooch or something she really wanted and put it on layaway. She would give her husband the layaway docket and he would pay it off, wrap it, and give it to her on Christmas day. It also had the added bonus of allowing him to see what she liked. Eventually, he was giving her that sort of thing himself in addition to the present she had chosen!

A plane ticket so she can visit you for the weekend.
I want to give a special gift to my love, my lovely wife. She is turning 25 on May 10th. I don't know what to get her. Can someone please help me? She is in Canada and I'm living in the US. It would be if someone could give some good online shopping online ideas where I can buy and ship the gift for her to her address. Thanks.

NotWrong is right. I know, because I'm in the same situation. Ironically, though, my niece who lives in the next state has me pegged. She thrilled me by purchasing a gift certificate to my fave online store. She didn't realize at the time, but she financed the new talking watch I'd needed for over a month!
To make a long story short, if you know your wife's preferences and her favorite store or shopping site, why not buy her a gift certificate?
