    I played Tom Sawyer with a pick once. Shame on me.
    You write "Love you babe" below the gift card to her shopping place of her preference that you stuck in the card.

    That being said, I'm 19 and single so my advice isn't worth much. :D

    Muffin cakes, our love has ascended to such a level, that a material gift would be insulting. Merry Christmas!

    That's what I was thinking. I do gifts but not cards, and I wouldn't expect one from a boyfriend/husband. In fact, I wouldn't know what to do with a card.

    I draw her pictures of my junk in crayon. I create such art with my tongue out for concentration. It's because I love her.

    My cards are made out of 12 pack cardboard.

    Tat2dHeart Only two strings away from an attitude problem.

    When I was married, I never got a card for Christmas from my husband (any of the three). Oh. Wait. #3 didn't make it till Christmas - so...either of the two who made it through one or more Christmases.
  15. what a bitter and twisted bunch you are...lol
  16. You give your wife a Xmas card?

    the point is most men dont understand the mentality of a woman.

    and really a simple card can have more meaning than gifts.
    yes gifts are nice too....duh
    a card is a simple piece of paper little or no value, what you dont get is what you actually write in the card has more meaning.

    But if you buy a large card and actually write something in there that has a cute little love letter the tears will fall and they feel much more appreciated.

    simple...overview the reasons you love her, talk about the simple things in life and how they have much more meaning when she is around.
    if you took a trip or vacation recap the special moments
    if she does things for you, the children and friends, thank her for her time and helping. Talk about family life and friends.
    Just pretty much sum up your lifes together and express how much better it is when she is around. Maybe even throw in a couple of jokes here and there. Or include funny things that might have happened over the year. You know make it seem like you actually paid attention. Or mention funny quirks about her you love. Even say that listening to her snoring at night sounds like angels singing. (ok just kidding) you get the point

    for god sakes if you had a #### up or screwed up sometime recent, dont bring it up in the card and apologize. this just reminds them of the bad moment. leave that krap out!! only positive stuff

    remember its not the card....its what you say in the card.

    I don't give her a Christmas card. In case anyone thinks that's insensitive, I did not spray Windex on her orchids either.
