Re: Gift Ideas

Me, 35 married female epidemiologist. I want: Jewelry! I saw something at the swaroski store that I just have to have and told my husband three months ago. I know I am getting it
So price range for GIFT FOR wife = 300 CHF and I think I am not being unreasonable (Edited)

I saw something at the swaroski store ...

I've always thought of that as a store for fake diamonds. Tell me more... what exactly did you see?

LOL it does sell swaroski (trademark) brilliants, they are not real diamonds, they are though very high quality. If it were for my anniversary I would ask for something else, but it is christmas...I saw this cute pendant I just love it.

Put some thought into it. Get everyone batteries. Sooner or later everybody runs out of batteries.

One of the best gifts I received was a day at a spa. This is something that a lot of people would never buy themselves. Most places allow you to choose a package so you can decide how much to spend. The person's relationship to you isn't really that significant.
