She doesn't collect anything, and she hardly buys anything for herself. She loves to read, but doesn't want a Kindle.

And no, she does not want a S/L of The Stand :-)
    I was together with my wife for 15 years and I totally understand the frustration. That's 14 Christmases that I bought gifts for her on top of the birthdays and just because gifts. I always tried to make each Christmas special, and here are a few of the items I got her over the years:

    King Arthur related items (she loved King Arthur and things in that motif) such as books (those were very tough since she hadmost of the published material or had at least read it), small pewter statues, a necklace of the sword in the stone, Barbie dolls done up like Arthur and Guinevere, a book of Arthur paper dolls, and a letter opener (that one didn't go as well as I had hoped)

    China dishes to replace a set that was stolen from her apartment

    Silverware (she LOVED china and silverware)

    A Barbie doll of Legolas from LotR (she drooled over Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp)

    Books

    Signed books

    Faberge ear rings

    A silver necklace

    And finally, what I believe to be her favorite things, handwritten poetry and love letters. She loved these so very much, and I know that because she kept them in a safe place that she could easily get to and had every one I ever gave her. I think those Christmas letters meant more to her than anything I ever gave her, and she did ask for one more than once. If there was anything I could suggest it would be that. Write your wife a love letter and tell her all the reasons you love her and just how much.

    Let he know that she is the light in your life and the sparkle in your eye.

    Sam,

    Thank you for your post. It is making me rethink this holiday season. Rather than go for the "goods", I may try to give her something much more personal instead. My mind is already churning...

    Not sure anyone has mentioned it, and maybe there is a better thread for this, but for anyone who cares: That flimsy glossy insert (USA Weekend) in yesterday's Sunday newspaper had a short interview with Stephen King.

    EDIT:

    Here is a link to the interview online.

    What's On Stephen King's Dark Side?

    Does anyone collect the original printed copies of this "small" stuff?
