Clothes. Nothing that requires the tailored sort of fit (my husband has very rare measurements – broad shoulders and back, long limbs, narrow waist, so unless they are tailored to the particular weight he happens to be at, they won’t show him off to the best advantage). The clothes that can’t go wrong are T-shirts and sweaters, the bigger and roomier the better.
Cuff links. Some men are closet jewelry hogs. Mine is one of those. He counts his little treasures like the Gollum with his “precious.” And there are so many ways to personalize cuff links to make them extra special.
Something from Home Depot. Like a special heavy duty manly drill or somesuch. Always strokes the male ego nicely even if you never expect him to use it. The gesture implies that you believe he’s capable of handling it like a pro, even if this would be an embellishment of the truth.
Sports tickets. Self explanatory.
Money/ Gift Card. Yes, a bit crass, a bit thoughtless. But if you attach it with “I just want you to buy yourself something you really need or want right now, honey,” you might do OK. I never know what he likes to read at any given point in time, for example, since he reads IT books that I have no interest in learning about.

This is Aja (pronounced Asia). Welcome to my site!
A bit about myself:
I’ve been writing stories since the age of six, and novels since the age of thirteen. Can’t say that those early efforts were particularly good, but I sure loved putting them down on paper! And whether I document them or not, stories are forever forming and expanding and interconnecting in my head.
The best part is–it’s completely organic, the way the stories develop. When the inspiration hits, I write just so I myself can learn where the characters are headed because oftentimes, they take me by surprise! It is my ultimate dream to become a best-selling novelist one day and share my stories with as many readers as I possibly can.
My other loves include art, cooking, old movies (anything with Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Robert Redford, Vivien Leigh, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Clark Gable, and all the song and dance numbers because you can’t watch them and not be happy!)
I adore taking long walks with my husband and running after my two rambunctious kids. I have traveled extensively (all seven continents except Antarctica) and have a multi-cultural upbringing. I speak two and a half languages and binge watch TV shows when the mood strikes.
I love hearing from readers, so please contact me directly! Subscribe to this blog to get the latest news and updates and free chapters in upcoming books!
Ciao for now!
XOXO Aja James
