What do wife's/female's want for their birthdays lately?



I had my mind all set on getting her a Kindle as she loves books, but she has a back log of hard books at the moment to read and just recently bought a box set so no need for a Kindle right now, might save it as a Xmas idea.

More importantly --

CB_24: What do wife's/female's want?



Anyone who can answer that gets... well, anything he wants, probably.

EDIT: Bah! Strikethrough doesn't work; Mauricio, I demand that you fix it immediately. It's ruining my smart-alec vibe.

I have ordered mine one of these . Ordered about a month ago no sign of it yet. Communication with the company is non existent so possibly a scam? Any who if it turns up I plan to also use it to scare the crap out of the cat.

Hopefully a 'whee' isn't the reaction you get from it.

Not a lawnmower, I can tell you from experience that it does not go down well.

Although a lawnmower is slightly better than nothing.
