I don't know what your husband is into, Duxxy, but the gift Mr. Rattus has loved best over our twenty-three years together is the $400 gift certificate ($10 for every year) to HMV Records I gave him for his 40th birthday. I know it seems like not a lot of effort, but if there's one thing Mr. Rattus loves to do, it's shop for music (and then come home, grab a beer, sit back and listen to all that music). Is there anything Mr. Duxxy loves shopping for? Tools? Sports equipment? I don't know how spectacular the ring he gave you was, but $1,000 ($100 per year) gift certificate to Canadian Tire would make many a man's heart flutter madly, because the browsing for hours at CT is almost as important as the stuff they've browsed for.
