What do you get the woman who has everything she wants?

I don't want/need more jewellery, have enough handbags, already got a spa day voucher not used yet.

Got an iPhone and iPad.

I work full time so buy my own clothes, don't need anything for the house and not really interested in experiences.

I have horses , would like a new posh bridle or something but he refuses to spend money on horses.

Need inspiration.

He could give money to a charity in your name?

He needs to treat you to 'a nice new posh bridle'.

I miss my horses sad

Vouchers for local tack shop?
Another horse? wink

What about a really good quality gilet? Or some gorgeous new riding boots or jodphurs?

DH and I are just getting each other DVDs that we feel we ought to have watched by now or ones we love but don't actually own. Each one is therefore a date night too. Includes old black and white dramas from garden centre shop and some 80s/90s cult stuff.

Why does he refuse to get anything for the horses?

not really interested in experiences.

Huh? Do you mean like a day driving a fast car, or a parachute jump, things like that?

If there's nothing you want, don't ask for a anything confused

I'm also lucky enough not to need anything but my boys and husband still want to buy me stuff so I've done a list with possible suggestions. Things like the pack of mini Baileys with all the different flavours, in Costa they sell minis of the syrups you can have added to your coffee, nice candles, hand cream etc.
There must be something you would like, how about a subscription to a horsey magazine?
SilkStalkings I love your idea.

I can buy my own clothes etc too, but in the run up to birthday and Christmas, I hold off and make a wish list of things I'd like or vouchers for stores I'd like (to wait for the January sales).

This year I'm asking for some L'Occitane hand and body creams, wrist warmers, some bits for the house, a specific coat I had my eye on, and a couple of books. Any help?

Beaverfeaver Tue 20-Nov-12 19:29:14

I am asking for a watch, a funky bangle, and some clothes

I'm in the same boat, don't want/need anything. I like sewing tho so I think I am going to ask for a pretty new sewing basket and some nice crafty bits to keep me occupied in the winter.
I am only 32 honest!

Same here. I can't think of anything. And I have asked dh and he too can't think of anything he wants either!

I am asking for some Neal's yard bubble bath which smells lovely and is a bit pricy for a small bottle. A pandora ring and charm, a Karen millen handbag and an aspinal purse but prob won't get the last two!
