Having been married an unnaturally long time , we have all the " things " and " stuff " that we need . Spendin half the year in the van, is a good reason for not buying anything surplus.
If we ever wan't something , it's never a prolem... We're accomplished shoplifters.
Same for our family. We buy experiences now, events that we can all share in enjoying.
Take her to a gig... Even some act that you'd normally not think of watching...? The Pantomime ... ?
How about going to a strange restaurant and not looking at the menu, before ordering...? Ask for a Number 21 and a 53.. We have often done this , with memorable results. ( Avoid 22.. it's always Tripe ).
