Christmas Gifts for the significant other!

Loosely related to RIBs ... as in if I don't get her something good, I wont be allowed out cruising ever again!

So anybody got any good Christmas present ideas. At least one of you creative types must have thought of a blinder for Christmas for their partners. You know you want to share the idea with me and save my fat ass from a beating!

"We're not doing present's this year as I've just ordered a brand new 33ft rib!"
That should have the desired effect your looking for Andy!

Failing that in my case; the imminent arrival of her mother also has the desired effect and takes her mind of xmas completely!!

At which point I "hot foot it" to the pub as sharply as possible with the birds brother!

There's no point getting in the way of family over xmas they always ruin it!

I've bought my other half a Yamaha manual, she keeps going on about the cost of boating and the servicing costs, so she can bloody well service the engine from now on, quaranteed after she's been out there on the 27th Dec in the cold removing spark plugs she'll be eager to spend the money having the engine maintained by my mechanical genius and be glad to spend the money
