Re: Need Ideas - Surprise Wife w/ GC

Suprise her with the key, and attached to the key is sort of a "treasure hunt/map" with clues to where the car is. Can use places from your relationship's past. First date location, first apartment together, etc.

Re: Need Ideas - Surprise Wife w/ GC

Park the new jeep near her car at work or at store or something (somewhere so you can see whats about to happen). Put a card or note on her seat (somewhere she will notice) that says "turn around" or "look over here". When she does, hit the panic alarm on the jeep with you inside so she knows its you. good luck

Re: Need Ideas - Surprise Wife w/ GC

Just a quick update. Still waiting on delivery of the GC; scheduled to be here either Wednesday or Thursday. So far, liking the valet idea, but that would mean more in the way of logistics to get worked out, plus waiting another day or two to give it to her. The 6 week wait alread is killing me; don't know if I can hold out much longer.

I'll post up again later this week.

I really think you should wait it out, and do the valet idea. Even call the valet at the restaurant ahead of time, and drop it off earlier in the day. On the night you and your wife go out, have the valet guys keep your car till the next day, because that way you can drive the new Jeep home with your wife, and then the next morning your wife will have to drive you back to the restaurant to get your car.

Hope it goes well!!

Re: Need Ideas - Surprise Wife w/ GC

No way would I leave the new ride abandoned there at a restaurant. Of course I wouldn't give my wife such an extravagant gift even for a 20th Anniversary either. Good luck though.

Re: Need Ideas - Surprise Wife w/ GC

Yep definitely do NOT leave it at restaurant overnight. Too many things could happen.
You want the Jeep to look amazing and offer the ultimate surprise when least expected.
She'll have no clue.

Re: Need Ideas - Surprise Wife w/ GC

let the dealership know what you did. take her to the dealership and have her sit in one and blah blah blah and then show her that her license plate is already on it. have them put the plate on after she test drives it and you are "talking numbers"
