Wink Menage a Trois....Should I?

Not what you're thinking!

Angie drew names for our Christmas, extended family/friends, exchange. As luck would have it she drew my ex-wife's name out of the hat for me

So...what do you buy for an ex-wife?

Angie won't help me out at all on this

She thinks it's funny....

My buddy at work said maybe a bottle of wine...

I have several bottles of Menage a Trois...quite tasty too!

But that's only $10-12 bucks worth of a gift...

Don't want to be a cheapskate on my ex...

Even though she tried to (unsuccessfully) take me to the cleaners many years ago...

HELP!!!!

what does she like?

is there a present limit?

why not stick the bottle of wine in with some cheese?

maybe some great wine glasses?

wine glass charms?


.....or go with something totally different!!

Something that shows that you have class and taste. Like NOT a book on how to have a healthy relationship.

Different Menage huh? How about a nice gift basket, toss in what she likes - wine, box of chocolate, movie card, fruit, nuts! Something so simple is all you need to keep the peace!

Exactly what I was thinking, start with the wine, throw in some nice glasses if you'd like, but a nice assortment of chocolates, crackers and maybe a little cheese board. Fancy and elegant but not crossing any potentially uncomfortable lines

have to add, i think its wonderful that you and your ex and wife have the type of relationship where everyone one is included. Really great to see

Awww, now I'm disappointed - FALSE ADVERTISING!

There are so many gifts you can get a woman, it's the men who are hard! But yeah, something from The Body Shop maybe?

Great advice JESS but as you may have noticed I have no class!

EVIL, I'd be glad to toss what she likes in a gift basket but I have no clue on what that is! And peaceful is hard for her to come by...jealousy is not

COONDOCKS, my ex-wife and some of her family, have been at my house on Christmas Eve every year since 1989 when she left. Not an event goes by that she is not invited to.

That's what my wife says and yet I still can't think of anything...but I do know you do NOT want to buy a toaster for the family and try to sneak it in the rest of her goodies on Christmas morn!! Lesson well learned

I'm the rare woman who likes getting kitchen appliances!

Is she/was she a high maintenance kind of gal? What about a gift certificate to a nail salon?

There's always the generic candles or scented soaps route.

Does she drink coffee? A pound of good coffee and a French press are always nice.

If the idea is bringing up this much stress and resentment, swap with someone else.
