    Might as well just buy her a house now. That way you won't be bummed out when the divorce comes along and you have to give her the one you live in... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    My girl and I agreed on a set spending limit for Christmas for each other. Of course she'll probably break it but I won't /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Buy her something sexy to wear to bed. That way you're buying yourself a christmas gift at the same time. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Depending on the commitment level and her make sure you don't spend too much. I did that once and scared an old girl friend away.

    I like Christmas shopping with my wife, yesterday we went to Sears and Funco-Land and bought my stuff, then to Bath and Body Works and A.C. Moore and got her stuff. That way we know were getting what we want.
