Make sure you have the correct size before you buy shoes for you spouse. If possible take a comfortable old pair of shoes with you to make sure that you get the right fit.

What can we say about belts? I wouldn't be too thrilled to receive one as a gift, but they are practical. Make sure your spouse likes or wears belts before purchasing one. Don't forget to check size too.

4. Leather Desk Sets

Does your spouse like to keep his/her desk organized and uncluttered? A leather desk set may be just the right gift. It wouldn't work for either of us. We would just lose it under the pile of papers on our desks.

5. Leather Handbags

Be very, very careful in selecting a handbag for your wife. Women are picky about the purse they carry. It took me 2 hours to select my last one. I had to make sure it had enough little sections and pockets to keep things organized, yet not be too big at the same time.
