As i see it you have 3 options:

1. Buy her something really sparkley (and I DO NOT mean a toaster) - doesn't matter what it costs, or how long you'll have to pay for it - it's always worth it in the end.

2. Fix up the basement and do the "Man Cave" thing mentioned above - that's what I did, basement consists of a Big screen HD TV, 92g bow front aquarium, my computer, recliner, and a poker table. Walls are all decorated in local sports memorabilia. It became our "high traffic" area quickly.

3. Put water in it before it's too late - she can't make you return it after it's wet - when she yells - just look at her and say "Can't return it now".

Now the caveat - utilizing option 3 will prbably land you on the couch for a night - but after a week she will completely forget how mad she was at you.
There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness"

Illusions. Mirrors on the wall will make the room look bigger.
What is man, that thou art mindful of him?...?:)
