Hi guys, ok so i have a real tough one here, I know im not gonna be liked too much for this one but I want to know what to get my good lady.
Background is she is my girlfriend (i have lived with her for a year or so now and we get on great) and she doesnt like techy things etc, she likes travelling and nice jewellery and is well into tiffany stuff, now i took her to paris for her birthday so dont fancy the travelling thing but what do i get her in the way of jewellery or anything else? She said just give her the money and she will shop when were away in new york at tiffany's but i dont like to do that.
I dont mins how much i spend, within reason of course, if its a new car im getting a boxster first!!!! nowhere to keep it though, boo hoo

so go for it guys what do you suggest, think from 3-400 quid

cheers

buy her purfume and earring and give her money to spend on holiday

i would get her some old jewellry, something really original and authentic, maybe an engagement ring, if your spending £400, must mean something

An arty collage from photobox (1.99pp + possible quidco hotukdeals.com/ite…pa/) to capture to love that you share (small present + other things)

If shes asked for money, but her a few little bits and do as the good lady says

Bill Bryson's book down under - brilliant book, hes got one on the USA too, could get her the collection they are really good books and so funny, and some nice perfume/chocolates
there was a lovely heart silver and mother of pearl locket on amazon with a huge reduction, I bought it for £7.50, you could put both your photos in that, a nice gift then give her some dollars for shopping in New York

i love bill bryson

usually easier (always get her something though, even if it is just a small thing)

what about one of those pandora bracelets....then a little money so she can add a few charms of her own liking

i wanted to get her a vintage watch but she said dont get me anything someone else has worn, they might have died in it

i just laughed at her

plus i think your barking up the right tree for the ring thing, think thats what she is after, good luck i say hahaha

True though, i would'nt like that either.

lol, tht would make it cooler to me

Sorry looks like my example was to low a price..........a canvas of a nice scene (something she would like) might be a possible choice.

hahaha thats sick!!! i dont mind vintage stuff its more individual but i wouldnt get one cause some poor giffer snuffed it while wearing it, you need help lmao

its got history though, if it was a minor celebrity tht died in it then it would be ace, its a conversation starter

what about a voucher for a spa day? or even a weekend if you want to splash out

Everyone one in my physics class (boys and girl) really love the programmable scientific calculators with 3d graph display. Have you thought about that?
