Help needed! 21st Birthday Present for girlfriend of ~6months

30 replies
Found 21st Jan 2011
Hi guys,

As per title, I know i'm in for a lynching from some of you for posting this here but i'm REALLY stuck!

We've just had Xmas - presents for her were some clothes and the cheapo £20 FRIENDS DVD boxset from Tesco which i found on here!

21st is a big one right? It's only been 6months but i should still get her something special right?

What would you opt for in my situation? Some kind of jewelery? More of the same (i.e. Clothes and DVDs?) or Tickets to something?

Has anyone bought or seen anything on this website recently which might be suitable??

I'm a student so not flooded with cash, but i would have a fair budget if there was something good on offer.

Thanks to anyone who helps, but to be fair, i'd be laughing at me too right now!

Weekend break?Pandora type bracelet?



Yeahh...I was looking at those bracelets.
Key words there is Pandora Type....

Do you know anything about them? Which of the possible options would be the wrong one to get for a girl who presumably knows all about them?

Big chocolate phallus?



lol, and there we go!

i would look at cheap flights asuming a passport, and plan a weekend. Thought more than cost.

and the choc phallus as a stand-by

or even some of these romantic groupon hotel stays?

Yeh i think i might do something like that actually

being a woman would def suggest a weekend away spa or other i now i would of loved that.

new handbag, it never fails to please me

I'd deffo recommend the spa break, failing that a nice watch, you can always get watches that look a lot more expensive than what they actually cost. If your NOT buying pandora, steer clear of "type" to be honest, I actually don't see what the hype is about, but a lot of girls do!
What about a star? Or a rose? Named after her obviously!! Good luck. X

I agree with the spa or a pandora ring / earrings. Something small but a bit of luxury. The pandora website does quite a range for between £50 and £100

i dont understand the big deal with pandora bracelets why do people like them so much?? i got one for christmas its still in its box.

I agree. If you go for jewellery Links of London or Tiffanny are far nicer.

This link is for 2 nights for the price of one and includes Crowne Plaza hotels. I've used this for 2 night in Glasgow in March and it has all spa facilities & pool etc. Quite a few of their hotels have these facilities are are all over the country too!

I have switched around from buying long term gifts which are either love/hate to making the most of the day. She will probably appreciate it more if you just spoil her rotten for the day by showering her in affection, taking her to a spa/theatre/whatever-she-likes then finishing up the night with a few tidy glasses of wine and er /end

Heck even paying to have her haircut or other womenly treatments normally go down well, as long as you don't insult her in the process

The price difference would also suggest that too.

Get her a new fella who can make decisions by himself.

Tiffiny has some lovely silver jewelry for under £100

I love my pandora bracelet - think links of london is vile personally lol. You can get a real pandora bracelet and i've filled mine up with argos beads - as i've got 5 pandora beads and it looked a bit naked lol

Plus pink champagne is the one for a 21st - got a few bottles on miine

If you can get time off during the week consider a tuesday out & thursday back Ryanair flight somewhere. It will cost you next to nothing if you take hand luggage & there are some great cities in Europe waiting to be explored

Pretty much anywhere but Eindhoven btw

lol, you mock but it actually bares an INCREDIBLE likeness! I like your thinking! Cheap and chearful eh?

maybe tickets to go see one of her fave bands/singers/comedians

I got taken to see bill bailey on my 18th, and Al Murray on my 21st, and I have to admit they were the best presents I got for either birthday

something nice to wear and a nice meal for two.......................she can take her mum boom boom

in all seriousness a nice meal and a nice gift would be good

A Soiled Nappy.

give her a surprise,tell her that you are dumping her for her sister
