    GF's BD is a few weeks away, and I bought her a nice lavender bathrobe and a card.

    I was thinking about just handing it to her, but then I thought better of it. Shouldn't I put it in a box or something?

    So I'm at the store and I see those gift bag things - I could get one and stuff it with stupid frilly paper and give it to her...then I notice the bag itself costs over $5 and the stupid frilly paper is like $1 each package.

    WTF, the robe was only $60.

    Am I going to get the cold shoulder if I don't package the present? What would my fellow cheap-ass K5ers do?

    Thanks for your input.

    Go spend the $5 on flowers, put 'em in the pocket of the robe and hang it in the bathroom for her. Flowers rarely fail.

    I'd say GJk5 and unclematty about nailed it.

    Please do yourself a huge favor and make an effort to put on a nice presentation. Otherwise prepare for a bad week.

    Or just toss it to her while continuing to watch TV. Please have a camera crew on stand by if you do this so that your surviving relatives can post up. :D

    if that stuff aint packed then you arent getting any gaurenteed. Go to the dollar store and buy a bag from there, get the frilly paper, and like the others said packaged that stuff real nice like, make her supper, ask her if she would like to come have a bath with you |this is where you get some| then give it to her when she asks for a towel.
