Do you live together?



unfortunatly not wish we did though just cant afford anything like that just now as she is paying her way through Uni

How about a long weekend somewhere, London, Barcelona, Dublin etc. ?

Massage, manicure or facial at Beauty Salon?

Or howabout an engagement ring?!?

Final idea totally depends on the weather but how about taking her somewhere for a picnic and get really lovely things like champagne & strawberries and all her favourite food, she'll probably appreciate this far more than a present, especially if you buy her them all the time. If you're really mushy, try hiding little notes or presents in the fodd (obviously where they choke her or break a tooth!!!!!).

She look's like she dyes her hair, so a hair appointment would be nice.

Mine cost's £60 at the hairdresser's, it may be a nice treat.

awww, you sound like a sweet bf buying her presents all the time
how about jewellery?

They all sound like a good idea i really like the picnic thing....weather permitting ofcourse.!

As far as engagement ring goes thats more of a save up type thing.....also i would rather give her another special day for that instead of haveing it bulked in with our anniversary lol

Hiya,

I was also going to say a charm bracelet from Links of London but not the sweetie one as shown above, I've seen loads of them about and other versions by different companies so personally not keen.

I've got this one.. linksoflondon.com/onl…let. Anything from Links comes beautifully giftwrapped. The charms are really pricey but they do have sales on throughout the year.

Other than that, what about:-
Watch.
Does she have a pet that she's mad about - posh collar for it or a pamper session for it.
Digital Camera - so you can make your own memories.
Something a bit different - tour of your own town (or nearest city) on double decker bus, lunch and cinema.
Theatre show.
Adopting an animal in a zoo

Good luck x

How about a treasure hunt with clues and then get her something like a star named after you both or adopt an animal or something like that. The certificate could be the last stop on the treasure hunt. It would be something different, a bit of fun and something sentimental that you can tell your kids about one day. Not that I'm pushing you into anything lol!

Would also get her a gold one.
Look in jewellers for secondhand. Not only do you get a better deal gold wise, there is no vat to pay.:thumbsup:

Oops, sorry, yes I did. PLEASE don't choke her!!!:whistling:

Nooo don't get her money, I'd HATE it if my boyf gave me that- may be practical but so impersonal.
For our 2yr anniversary my boyfriend picked me out a necklace/ earring set- i have to say that at first I wasn't sure as it's quite different from my usual taste, but 2yrs on and I LOVE it, and wear the necklace every day, and it's all the more special because it means something to me

women always love clothes, shoes, handbags, day at spa etc. if my hubby gave me any of these i would be shocked tho think his choice of clothes, shoes would be totally different to mine! lol. instead i get a card and a kiss on the cheek but i guess thats what happens after 5 yrs of marriage to a unromantic lol

lapdance, she'll love it :-D
