    Okay guys and girls its suggestion time, as well as previous presents. Im looking at getting her something good this year, and my only stipulation was it can't be plugged in (I usually buy her crap) and that it has to show how much I love her. Baisically im up sh!ts creek without a paddle. She isnt really into anything too much, she takes dance classes and goes to night school... She has all the jewlery that she can handle and flowers are too cliche...


    HELP

    if she likes dancing...then take her out for dinner and a killer play/ballet. just don't tell her, let it be a surprise. that's what I would do if in your situation.

    Hey man can you cook? You could surprise her on her bday with a nice dinner that you cooked and then you could rent her favorite movie or something.
    I did this a few weeks ago for my girlfriend. I BBQed some porksteak and made mashed potatos, corn on the cob and some mixed veggies. I had the table all set with candles and all. Afterwards we watched a movie. I was a nice evening together which she really liked.

    I know it's a corny idea but it might be something diffrent.

    She may have a lot of jewellry but take it from me...diamonds WORK! Even a small solitaire...seems to make them cry, smile, laugh and then ask silly questions like "is it real?" and "did you buy it?" .......strange chaps, women. :D

    HAHA, I dont know how much she would appreciate a firearm, I know I could use a new shotgun for the rest of goose season.

    I like the dinner and a play or ballet idea. The people at the ballet might not let me through the door, or take it seriously that I want to see it, but I will try :haha:

    Mike,

    Just an off the cuff, out of the box idea - how about a IOU or certificate good for say 3 hours of your time to do whatever she wants, no questions asked.

    if you want to get laid out of this, the one thing you can do that has got me laid everytime with every girl friend is after you get her what ever present you end up getting her and you wish her happy birthday and all that, is to tell her you have one more suprise for her, you take her into the bed room and you sit her on the bed, then you stand in front of her for a moment looking at her, smiling for a moment, till she has a look of anticipation, then you slowely start to undue your pants and pull them down to reveal a red ribbon tied into a bow around your junk, and a name tag with her name on it, :haha: :haha:, they allways think its cute that you would do that. I SWEAR it will get you laid or atleast a hummer. you tell her, well are you gonna open your present..... you know what happens when she opens it. :D

    be careful with that one, that sounds like an open invitation to get to do laundry, the dishes, and massage her sweaty feet after she's been working in the yard all day. :eek1:

    You done messed up. When me and the wife got together an old man told to not get her anything for the next few holidays etc.., so i did not and now she will go get her a little something. She does not expect me to and appreciates that i don't when i make a few sugestions on what might be nice to get her. There are other things i was told to about this girl/wife thing too. When you go to the store and they ask if they should get this or that just give a shoulder shrug or the like and alot of the time they will leave it. Also suggesting some other one will make them unsure and they will not get one of what they are looking at. Man if you only knew before you bought her the first present.

    Maybe take her out so you can buy "battries" or something, have her look around, make mental notes of what she looks at and what she smiles for, then buy that
