Last year for Valentine's Day, I made hubby a little Valentine-book called "LAURA'S GIFT GUIDE." I used an inexpensive plastic photo album (so I could make modifications when I wanted to or needed to).
When my husband or I see something that we would like to have as a gift, we mark the ad, catalog entry, circular etc. We indicate color, size and any other relevant information. This allows for a surprise, since we don't know what the other person will select. It also allows us to take advantage of sale prices. The only disadvantage to doing this has been a few gifts not given for the occasion purchased for because they were put away too well. Now we note what was purchased and where we stashed it on our personal calendars.
Excellent tip, very smart idea!
