For Valentine's day, I've decided to give my wife a box with 7 gifts representing the 7 deadly sins. The only trouble is I can't figure one of them out. Lust, Greed, Sloth, they were all easy, but I can't figure out what gift to put in the box to represent Envy that wouldn't break the bank. Any creative ideas on this one guys?

The simplest and cheapest idea that comes to mind, is a photo of some celebrity she likes that seems to have-it-all, or similarly a picture of a mansion. (Obviously, if you gave her an actual item that she really wanted, it wouldn't be "envy" anymore, because she'd now have it!)

Gwenyth Paltrow's head in a Perhaps something that other women would envy, or that she has envied in others? Is there anything she's seen on others and wished for? Unrelated, here's what you get when you google "Envy":

Awesome pic! And it actually inspired me.

A piece of jewellery with a green stone, perhaps?

What a wonderful idea, I'm positive she'll love it!

How about something extraordinarily beautiful and somewhat rare that others would love to possess?
One idea is a black calla lily, I'd bet you can figure out something creative.

Another great idea.

I was thinking about finding a stuffed toy monster with green eyes, but I like both of these ideas better.

Maybe a green rose from Ecuador? Didn't know they existed but a quick google found me this. Only works if your local florist has them in stock, since the day is so near.

You could try to find a hamster with a birth defect that gives it green eyes. (Peter Gilmore's "Green-Eyed Hamsters").

Well... I guess that would take a while. Maybe next year?

This is the suggestion I went with. Found a beautiful Silver/Peridot bracelet that will cause a lot of envy among her friends.

Thanks for all the great suggestions everyone.

My favorite jewel, peridot. Mainly because it's beautiful.

Partly because most sheeple have never heard of it. They will find it hard to believe that it is a semi-precious stone.

The Jeweler tried to sell me an emerald bracelet(which was nice) for 5x the price. I have to say that even if they were the same cost, the peridot with silver is more beautiful than the emerald and gold.

Thanks again to Rev. Strongbone, ever the romantic.

Envy Perfume


A picture of her in sexy lingerie. Because I envy my wifes beautiful body, and if I were a woman I'd play for her team. Of course said pic would be of her in new lingerie, some of that earlier mentioned jewelry and of cours high heels.
