Give him a Muffler from Remus and a KnN/Green Air Filter with CAI, or a standalone ECM

How about a digital projector......

It can be connected to laptops, PCs, TV set-top boxes blah blah.

Or a nice set of Bose headphones. They are very expensive but within the budget.

Buy something nice for yourself in that budget and tell her that you bought this for her hubby.

Lightbulb Gifting ideas

Every year i face the issue of choosing the right set of gift for my better half (for those N number of occasions) in order to maintain PEACE and HARMONY in my world. Crazy mistakes have been made in the past where forecasting was not done properly which resulted in...i will give you an example: Peel an orange, give it an imaginary name like "my world" & put that orange in a blender. So here is an attempt to avoid being a pulp in future.

1. Members feel free to ask about gift for any of your relationship/s.
2. Please share what gifts you gave / are planning to give out.
3. You come across a gift while browsing the web, share it here for others to see.

I just bought this Bicycle for my better half http://www.playgroundonline.com/prod...3X7/14503.aspx (from a physical store, not online) and will be giving it to her next week on her birthday. Looking forward to many cycling trips with her!

Requesting fellow BHPians suggestion on gifting WiFi on her birthday coming up in December, this is the third one after our marriage and comes close to our marriage anniversary as well.
Earlier gifts were a watch, mobile phone and jewellery.

I ve completely moved right from the early 2000's to gifting people different gift cards, gift vouchers and e-gift cards of popular brands and retail shops.
Let them choose what they want rather than me pushing something down their throats.

Second that thought of GVs fully but in this case it is THE WiFi who thinks it is totally unromantic to get something like that and not a physical gift albeit however small it can be

Hence this dilemma over and again balancing the heart and wallet.
