    For xmas my gf got me an iPad engraved and for my birthday she got me an experience day fot two to train at St James Park.

    Both pressies were around £500 each.

    How do i compete with this without blowing my whole bank account?

    Cubic zirconia

    give her £500 cash ?

    or get a group on deal - they are quite good - you could get a couple , say one each day of her birthday week ?
    or use the money to go away somewhere , preferably with her lol

    is that a new wrestler

    Shouldn't be about competing. Plan a whole weekend for her, take her away but don't tell her where you are going, save a fortune by searching cheap deals. organise every last bit of the trip down to where you eat and what you do but don't tell her any of it. Most woman are so nosy that they would find this both frustrating and intriguing, will be a great memory for her.

    buy her condoms

    the best gift is to send her to Egypt

    buy her nothing,sit her down and tell her over a nice glass of red wine how you feel about her,that will mean more than any present.

    No, no, no, ignore people saying cost doesn't matter or get engaged.
    Take her away to a nice hotel for the weekend, buy her some nice underwear, rose petals on the bed etc etc.

    This is good too. Great ideas guys

    Go away for a dirty weekend, it looks like a present for her but you get to enjoy it as well.

    I did this for her in November. Went to the new forest and rented a log cabin which was pretty awesome.

    Awww you old romantic you!

    If you are going for presents every day for her birthday week, nice things include:
    flowers
    Chocolates
    Helium balloon saying 'happy birthday'
    A meal cooked by you
    A necklace
    A mix cd of her favourite music
    A romantic evening, some flowers on the bed and she gets to choose whatever she wants to do in the bedroom department
    A photo frame with a nice photo of you together
    DVD lovefim subscription so she can have a few months of her favourite films
    A voucher to buy some shoes/handbag (like Next, Selfridges, house of Fraser etc)
    Some bath products from Lush

    EDIT: you could also write her some IOUs, like for you to drive when you go out for an evening so she can drink, to clean the house, to make supper, to give her a massage, to let her have a pass from the football on tv one evening, to leave the house one evening and let her have a girlie evening with her friends etc

    defo mix cd as sicklysweet suggested, awesome idea, i still have mix tapes from back in the day, memories....

    Write her a love letter and put a necklace in it.

    How old is she? Whatever age she is you could get that many presents (say she's 26, get her 26 presents), wrap them all separately and put them in a big box. Or play pass the parcel and wrap one in another in another, could be fun to open. It really is the thought that counts and if it was me I wouldn't want you being stressed about trying to compete with what I got you, I'd want you to have fun choosing something and for it to be full of love, thought and all that soppy stuff girls love.

    my partner has got the hint!! at last. hair vouchers. it costs a loads for what it is really to get your hair done at most places, and a lady always feels good after! or nails if thats what she into. or both!!!

    You have been very helpful. I like this idea also.

    Do people really do all this stuff ^^^^^ in actual life????

    Musical Man - just spend what you can afford.
    Are you sure you didn't kick all this off with the romantic lodge thingy????
    She's thinking ..OMG it cost a fortune the New Forest Lodge, I had better get something really expensive and special for Xmas and then birthday.

    You're thinking OMG she's got hugely expensive gifts, I had better get something dead expensive for her. All well and good if you have money to burn but not so great if you haven't.... if it's going to rinse your bank account.

    Time for a chat between the two of you, about finances and present buying, I think.

    Which stuff? The soppy stuff? If so then yep My OH and I both do and I love it lol Id rather have a small amount of money spent on me but there be lots of thought than just an expensive generic present just given to me.

    OP I agree that you should have a chat with your girlfriend about the worry about the price of the present, like Chesso said the lodge idea could have started the whole thing off and she might be pleased to hear that she doesn't have to try and 'keep up'. She'll also probably tell you that you don't need to 'keep up' and that its the thought that counts.

    Sicklysweet has come up with some great ideas, I need to get thinking for my OH's 30th!!
