Default Housewarming/gift for awesome wife... I'm out to sea!

My wife has handled a few Navy moves in the last few years... a couple of them on her own. One of them while I was on a hunting trip. She's beyond awesome... I chose well.

I'm out on the boat and won't be back for a couple months, and today she is moving from a house we own in town (crap schools) to a house on base (good school). We've got friends helping, but it still sucks. Yes, I'm going to be a landlord again, but this time we chose our renters well, not like last time... there's s thread out there about it if anybody cares.

I'm squashing my brain trying to come up with a housewarming/gift/present/thanks kind of thing for her. Jewelery comes to mind, but other than a set of diamond stud earrings that I'm supposed to buy in a foreign country (more mysterious), I can't think of anything.

I'm open to suggestions or brainstorming... what say you?

Chip and Dales guys to come visit after an evening of unpacking?

Send her to a nice spa for a day - where she can have a massage and they'll put vegetables on her face. Women love that ****.

P.S. - Don't send her to the "spa" that is right outside of the front gate of the base....wrong kind of spa.

Anything that would make her life easier before or after the moving day. Maid service, spa day, new ____ she's been wanting to use around the house...

Agreed with Spa Day.

I typically buy the wife 1-2 per year. Yeah, it's a bit of coin to get her the top of the line service (about $375 around here at the top-end Spa's), but she gets pampered for an entire day.

Movers are under control... much help from neighbors and friends.

Just bought a 3-pack of Poo-Pourri... best gift ever.
