It's that time of year again as we all know, and like every Christmas, I try to come up with an idea for a Christmas gift for Ms. Scooter Trash that is "from the heart". (In other words, cheap to do, but it goes a long way.)

The idea that I'm leaning towards this year was given to me from a friend. She suggested starting a book of our relationship together by using a journal and writing down "our first times" and stories and experiences over the past 5 years together. And of course, leaving pages empty for the future.

I was curious if anybody out there had similar ideas for such gifts?

Happy Holidays

My buddy did that for his girlfriend of infinity years (they later broke up and he married a better girl a year later, but I digress), and she loved it. He had all their old movie ticket stubs, pictures, etc.. and wrote down memories, thoughts, etc..

She loved it. It was a good sappy gift, and of course everybody loves a hand-made gift.

While this doesn't fit the category at all, a good hour long massage at a reputable place works wonders. Toss in a manicure and pedicure, and you're set.

I like the journal idea, but while at your at it, throw in a little hand-made coupon book.

The coupons will be for all the little romantic things that your lady just loves: a coupon for a day when you do all her usual chores around the house; a coupon for a night out to dinner at her favourite place; one for a foot and back massage; one for a smooching session, etc.

It's that you wouldn't do these things without the coupons, but giving her the coupons is a fun way of putting the control in her hands, a way for her to approach you and say, "this is what I would like to do today."

Pretty soon, she'll be approaching you with a little slip of paper in her hand, saying, "You're taking me out tonight," or "you're doing the dishes while I put my feet up," or "off with the pants, mister!"

Yeah, but if they're married she most likely has that control already, coupon book or no coupon book. :)

Does that rule out anything in Chinatown?

First year I was with my girlfriend I put together a giant Christmas card for her containing endorsements from various celebrities, including but not limited to:

William Shatner
Johnny Mathis and the cast of Forever Plaid
Ralph Nader

I'm OK with jokes and gag gifts, but man, I am terrible with anything serious.
