$50 Birthday Gift Ideas for Wife?

Ok, my wife's birthday is tomorrow. I need to get her a small gift (I already threw a dinner party for her last weekend, but tomorrow is the actual birthday, so I just need to get her a little something).

Any ideas?

And, yes, I know that it's already almost 6 and the stores close in about 3 hours. But I have lots of confidence in you guys. I know you can come up with something in, say, an hour.

Whatever you get her, make sure you throw the receipt out so she doesn't see that you got it just now.

Doesn't a $50 gift for your wife usually mean a $150 gift? How about a gift certificate for a massage? Ladies like those, I think.

Check whether she is running low on her favorite perfume.
New CDs of music she likes but never has bought.
Do not even think of buying her a kitchen appliance.
A bouquet of flowers.
Negligee.
Gold neck chain for pendants.
Leather skirt.

buy her some flowers, put her in a bath with candles and soft music, give her a full body oil massage, make her dinner in bed... be sure to clean all the dishes up too.

its not about the money, SHOW her you care and the money wont matter one bit.

Good ideas everybody, thanks. Love the cash idea! Ha! Scottwww gets kudos for lots of good ideas. Wispre wins, though, for inspiring me to make her breakfast in bed in the morning. He also gets bonus points for coming up with an idea that doesn't require any last minute shopping!

Ok, I know this must sound pretty cheap. It's not like that. Really, we already had a record celebration last weekend. Tomorrow I just wanted to give her a small token.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Very tempting to put a joke answer here such as, "an electric razor", etc. but I won't do that...
