Instructions

  1. 1

    Consider your spouse. Would they want his-or-hers emerald rings, or might they prefer a fresh coat of green paint in the kitchen?

  2. 2

    Be practical. Emeralds are precious stones, so they can cost a lot of green.

  3. 3

    Consider interpreting the suggestion creatively. Green can be golf-related gifts, landscaping services, a green tree planted in their yard or tickets to Ireland - the land of the green.

  4. 4

    Shop around; check out online stores, catalogs, and specialty and department stores before you commit yourself.

  5. 5

    Enclose a personal gift card.

  6. 6

    Wrap your gift perfectly, and if you can, deliver it in person.

Tips and warnings

  • Consider peridot instead of pricier emeralds.
  • How about sending flowers every week for 55 weeks? Or perhaps a fruit basket with grapes, gooseberries and kiwis.
