    I didn't spend too much on the wife this year. Just an exercise bike to compliment the treadmill she doesn't use. At 5'7" and about 210# I fear for her getting diabetis. Hope this bike gets more work than the treadmill. I figure I'll use it for cardio and flexibility purposes.

    Last few years we've concentrated more on our kids and grandkids. She buys clothes and toys and I write checks. I figure to give the kids some help now while they're struggling rather than wait till I die and inherit money they don't really need when they're 50 years old. Besides, I play the stock market and this year started picking my own stocks. Doing fairly well lately so can help them more.

    My wife is a Neil Diamond freak so I got her a pair of tickets for an August 7th show in San Jose Ca. GD, you think that mixer is spendy . I'm guessin he won't have many more tours left in him.

    FYI,these mixers are down right spendy.

    and i had to bing SIGNIFICANT to get the spelling.no one will take my lack of grammer and spelling crown from me.lol
    GD, on the plus side, those mixers have attachments that can grind meat and help make sausage. Just trying to help you find a bright side. Enjoy.

    My wife got the same mixer last year for that very reason. Coincidentally, it's the one she wanted for baking....

    Sue and I don't get each other gifts, stopped doing that many years ago.
    We just get stuff all year long. This is the first year we didn't get a tree, with my son gone out of state now it doesn't feel like Christmas.
