    What to buy??

    If you have just started seeing a girl and really like her, and her birthday is a month what the F do you buy her?

    It can't be anything to huge because I have just started seeing her. But, it can't be something small like a mate might get.

    Must be some women out there with good ideas, lol

    Rep for any helpful advice

    a bottle of perfume maybes, do you know what one she wears

    a me to you limited edition bear?

    A small gift accompanied by a humorous card is your best option. Some gifts to consider are candy, a funny stuffed animal, or flowers.

    is she into any kind of films? music that you could add to her collection








    that sounded a bit rude

    i'd expect tea out anyway if it was my birthday ! Not posh - but a treat !

    I think a nice necklace or earrings - so she can read into it what she wants - Amazon have some nice ones cheap - and if you can stretch to it - flowers and chocs on the day will make her feel really special and remember the birthday...........not a huge bouquet even - you can get some lovely ones for around a fiver at Asda, Tesco etc - and they usually have a small box of chocs on offer too.

    How about a big giant Millies cookie with your choice of birthday message piped on it?

    The big round birthday ones are £11.99 and they come in large cookie gift box. Phone your local millies the day before collection.

    They always go down well when I give these as gifts.

    nice idea, something fun and nothing to serious

    Sassies idea of perfume is a good "neutral" gift,don't get supermarket flowers though if you want to impress.

    Why not take her out for a meal and perhaps a small (cost) item of jewellery.

    i wouldnt do jewellery after being with someone for a month, but thats just me, jewellery is far to personal and easily got wrong

    I like the idea, and the meal out would be good. But with earrings and necklaces it easy to make the wrong choice.

    Her birthday is for a month yet, so I have plenty of time to decide. I just thought I would prepare earlier so I don't end up panicking the night before, lol

    choccies and flowers are a bit cliche

    Why dont you buy her bath stuff from lush? i know that is too i geuss

    If you really like her then jewellery is always nice as it's something she can treasure.

    I am not suggesting that you spend a fortune though,maybe go for some fashion jewellery like the Lola Rose range....link ]here....prices start from just under £20......this range is young and funky and good quality too.It comes in a small, pink ribbon ties bag so nicely packaged

    Banned

    to be honest i think after a month, a card and a meal is ample, if you really want to go with a gift to them just make it something small and nothing to personal, your bound to get it wrong

    lmfao

    i just think jeweelery is really personal, and dont know many men that get it right after years let alone a month, i would never wear something i didnt really like, no matter who got it me, i have pieces of jewellery in draw that has never been worn, couldnt return it cause its the thought that counts, but wouldnt wear it either, something to pass on to daughter though - lol

    LOL

    I hope a lot does happen this month. Perhaps I should start a blog ;-)

    I like the cookie idea (have bookmarked it too). If you go too ott you do run the risk of having to do something bigger next year.

    I must admit I'd not want to receive jewellery after such a short time.

    Erm as you're still in the first blush of the relationship no doubt you can barely keep your hands off each other LOL how about designing a naughty voucher book to go along with cookie. I'm sure you'll enjoy it too when she redeems said vouchers

    You never know!

    Thats why I want to get it right. Not too over the top and nothing to small either

    i must be well behind the times - i would be naffed off if someone just took me out for tea and didn't bother with a pressie ! Supermarket flowers are fine - you can peel off the label -maybe i am a cheapskate ! I have bought psople jewellery before - just choose something like she wears already........i suppose everyone is different - thats the joy of this site - good luck on the day - and abouve all - have fun !

    How about combining chocolate and flowers and getting one of these
