Gift Ideas ?

Specifically significant other? I seem to be at a loss this year, nothing is jumping out at me. we never spend a ton at christmas, but $100/$150 range. Any ideas?

In general, or cycling-related. Both my sites have some gift ideas for outdoorsy people.

i bought my wife a few pairs of those flats that women seem to like this year, the lucky brand ones. a long fuzzy victoria's secret robe for couch lounging, and two of the new juicy couture perfumes, le fleur and the special edition one that comes in the funky bottle.

if she likes shoes, those flats are the in thing for chicks now. i am not sure if your wife likes those but i see all the women at the mall wearing them now. and everyone loves a big fuzzy warm robe for lounging.

a day at the spa so she's out of your hair for a day? it's like a gift for-you-for-her-for-you kind of thing.

Think about it. She gets pampered for the day, comes home feeling great and you've had a day to yourself.

Win-Win!

A home brewing kit for her too. And a new cordless drill.

I have yet to meet a woman that didn't like a spa day kind of thing.
