I am not typically a very "creative" person, so take these suggestions with that understanding. From a wife's point, depending some on the personality and type of your wife here are some ideas: 1. If she is routinely responsible for most household chores, find the 2 she hates the most and have them totally done for her when she gets back. And/or make her a coupon book for your availability to do those things. 2. Pick some wildflowers if you have any available, if not buy flowers (unless you know your wife doesn't like them). Put them together with her favorite candies/chocolate/fruit etc. Arrange them yourself, its more personal. 3. Gift certificates to a day spa if you live near one. Now..know your wife on this one..believe it or not, not all of us dig this one. 4. Is there something she's been wanting for a while but doesn't want to get it for herself? Or something you've previously told her she couldn't have that you would be able to get now? If you can't come up with anything ask her mother/sister/best friend. Just remember to tell them its a secret. 5. Cook a candlelight dinner (or if you absolutely can't cook, order in). Set it all up with her favorite food/dessert. Make sure its all about her and not something you wanted. I have to say I'm glad to see another husband besides mine interested in surprising his wife with something special!

if am that woman , i want a bracelet. bracelet with heart pendant. when it comes to the party , i want it to be full of balloons, i like it to be cute. well, that is my suggestion, but i think you depends you gift on her personality, like what is her favorite color and movie. I suggest you also be romantic.

Wives have funny thinkings most of the time. If you are too good, they think you are up to something. If you do not pay attention to them, they are not happy and think you neglect them. In this case, I would just have a quiet dinner with her at a restaurant and listen to her trip stories.

You could cook dinner for her and set the table with candles and her favourite flowers.

I think you would know better what surprises her. Think back to your dating... what excites her? Be ORIGINAL dude... don't ask her. Show her your sincerity. :P
