What to buy...

Ok so I've been w/ my girl for 6 years... I'm 23 she'll be 22 in a few days. After 6 years I've bought her all the jewelry she can handle, Ipod's, digital camera and a few Coach purses and wallets. She really doesn't have a hobby... other than shopping and tanning... lol. Valentines day I resorted to my last known resource and bought her some really nice martini glasses, two Chelsea Handler books and some other random items.... so now I'm completely out of ideas
It's pretty much hopeless for me to buy her clothes, shoes, accessories bc she's extremely picky when it comes to those things... after 6 years I still have no idea what all her qualifications for clothing are... apparently I misplaced the checklist a long time ago.

So guys and girls... throw out some ideas if you could please!!

Buy a ring out of comitment and love. If it's an ultimatum you will be bosses around until your expensive divorce

No hobbies no collections... she enjoys traveling, shopping, tanning.

You didn't listen to the song did you?

In the song SHE's the slacker and HE buys her everything. :(

Take her to the Zoo. Dude you might be surprised. I took Bonnie to the Zoo on her 21st B-Day and we had a great time. It was personal and we had plenty of time to talk about stuff. It's a winner.

Anything that requires a setup. If you had to spend time doing it, she'll really appreciate it. Even if she doesn't like it.

How bout get her a new rotary sander or a dremel kit.

I once called ahead to Olive Garden (I know, not a 5 star place but that's what makes it cool) talked to the manager and set up a special dinner where everyone knew her name. I had set up a table with flowers and all that girly stuff. Our table looked much different than all the rest in the place. They were more than willing to work with me cause I did all the work. All they had to do is remember to call her Miss PeQueen all night. I tipped big but it was worth it.

*Disclamer* Don't do this when she's old enough to get pissed about being called Miss.

Then just have an action gift like tickets to a really cool show or concert or whatever she would like.

BELIEVE me. It's very simple but all she needs to have is the knowledge that you spent time in preparation.

A massage is always a good gift, or a homemade one (a small memento of you two, maybe breakfast in bed), also, handmake a card and include a coupon you've made up for a shopping spree, or something cute like "This entitles you to spend a day with (insert your name) alone, doing the activity of your choice" and either date it and let her pick what you do, or make it for that day.

I will post some more ideas later. Good luck!

There is no way anyone on her can give you the right gift idea....WE DO NOT KNOW HER!

ANY gift that is worth anything is a personal gift, that only someone close to her would know she wanted. REMEMBER, everything a woman wants revolves around the test of HOW WELL YOU KNOW HER..........EVERYTHING. Take it from someone who knew my first wife for 9 years, then I got divorced, now I am going on my 12th year with my current wife.........all women want from their man is the following:

- Someone to read her mind (Know her Well)
- Someone to Listen to hear (no matter how crazy she sounds at that minute)
- Someone she knows is still attracted to her even after all those years
- A Shoulder for her to cry on
- Someone to fix things when they are broken
- Someone to deal with the Icky Stuff (Bugs, Garbage, Dog Shit, etc.)
- Someone to just say "YES"
- Someone to appreciate what she does
- Someone to be a father to her children

And last but not least:

- Someone to treat her like a Princess in front of others and like a $2 hooker in the bedroom
- Someone to give her earth shattering Orgasms, night after night


If you can do all that, there is no need for all the Material Crap you waste your money on, because if you are not fulfilling the above, she will cheat on you and your relationship will not last anyway. So save your money and start focusing on what she really wants!!

Just a little tip from your buddy Xmicro!

Quality post right there.... bravo my friend, bravo... and thanks for the life lesson...

btw... I can only treat her like a $2 hooker when shes under the influance... any other time it's a least one of those $500/hr types...

Thanks to everyone who gave some great ideas... I really like the H1 off road idea... she would probably like that (did a pretty wild 4wd safari thing in Jamaica last year she loved).

keep em coming... Just got a text from her.. "We should go to Tanger Outlets and pick out my bday present" so we'll see how that goes...
