Girlfriend Xmas Gift

Postby Spiegs1106 » Thu Dec 01, 2005 9:33 pm

So I have been doing out with the girl you helped my with awhile ago for over 5 months. Our 6 month aniversary and Xmass are a day apart so I figured I could combine them and get one gift...easy enough, but no.

What would be a gift (not too expensive) that she would love. I have 2 ideas....

I found a web site that for you put in characterists of your girlfriend and they will design a fragrence with her name on it and everything.

My other idea was to get her a nice scarf and maybe personalize it.

Any ideas or things that have worked with your girlfriend? Thanx

You can never, never go wrong with jewelry.

My girlfriend has terrible taste, likes things in corny heart shapes. But she loves it nevertheless. The girl before liked simple shiny earrings, little studs.

But I've never dated a girl who didn't like a nice little necklace or earrings. They like when people ask "Oh, new earrings?" and they can answer: "Yes, my boyfriend got them for me."

Buy her a glass rose. Girls love that kind of stuff.

very true...all girls love accessories in general...but jewelry is the best by far...although it may be a bit heavy on the wallet...if so, i think the scarf is a great idea. As you know, I live right next town over from you...and we both know how f'in cold it gets around here...

I'm not buying any woman jewelry after six months. :-o
I mean maybe if she has bought me a few new shirts or some sneakers or something through out the year, but please ....

Oh and don't do that fragrance thingee either. If she doesn't like the smell of it, your doomed

Get her a bear from that bear place that is always on the radio. Chics dig the bear.

If she is still around next christmas ... then she can have the pearl necklace.
You don't believe me. Ask virtually any woman where they got most of their neckalces in their jewelry boxes, and the awnser is always "boyfriends".
Then ask her what those boyfriends names were or where they are now ....
Defense rests!

Get her the bear ;-D

WR is right on for this one.

I've been dating a girl 20+ months (will be 21 on the 13th) and the bear definitely is a hit.

Before we went to college we went to the Create-a-bear place and made each other a bear to remind one another or the other while away at college.

I wouldn't do jewelry after 6 months, but if you decide that's the best route, I'd get her a necklace that has to do with her birthstone and maybe have that set in diamonds, but that's going to be costly, especially since it is only 6 months. Girls don't often wear the same earrings on back-to-back days and rings are reserved for far more important relationship dates. Some girls don't like bracelets...definitely, if you get jewelry, make sure it's a necklace.

But, personally, I'd do the bear because it gives her something to cuddle at night when you aren't there and you can personalize it (even give it a sound bite when you squeeze its hand) that can remind her of you; always a plus. ;-D

Hope that helps...and p.s. what should I do for Christmas for those that have been in relationships close to 2 years. Money isn't really an obstacle here so play whatever ideas you have (keep them somewhat realistic, though).

If you like her and want to keep her, get her something from here:

You will get your way with her. I promise you that...

I agree, I got my girlfriend a tiffany bracelet after dating for about six months for Christmas. It didn't put me back more than $200 and, just in case this is what you're going for, yes it got me laid that night....

Twice. ;-D ;-D
