And yes, if you're unsure, ask her what she'd like!

I was thinking some kind of coffee stuff but I am not a coffee drinker at all.

Thought about shoes but not sure what to get.

I am usually very good at gift giving.
Go to Amazon and search for coffee lover's kits.

Have her send you a link to the item, buy it on line, have it pre-giftwrapped and all you gotta do is hand her a card.

Nothing says "I Love You" more than that.
Do NOT do this! It shows you that you don't really care. Sending links turns into "can you just order it yourself" and eventually you know your gifts (if you get one at all) for every birthday and holiday. It will make her feel awful. Pay attention and write things down if you easily forget.

Re: Need gift ideas for GF

Jewelry is tough unless you know her taste REALLY well. Another cheat so they she is still surprised - ask her best friend to come with you when you are picking something out. She likely knows her taste better than you.

Coffee cupping might be fun - sort of like a coffee tasting. Does she have a chemex? Home page

If she's really into specialist coffees, as in ones from a particular farm or with a particular flavor profile, chemex is a good way to show those off. You could get her the filters that go with it. You could also get her a spice grinder like this: Krups Fast-Touch Coffee and Spice Grinder | Sur La Table

so she can grind her coffee fresh every day before brewing it - makes a big difference to the flavor.

Re: Need gift ideas for GF

If she likes the candle experience, try buying her luminara candles- but deals at QVC.com . It's a real wax candle with an artificial flame and a timer.

A portable charger is always appreciated for charging phones or whatever on the go. Find one that has additional features like flashlight, bluetooth speaker, hand warmer, etc. Get it engraved with something sappy like "GF, you power me up. Love, NMT4M"

Re: Need gift ideas for GF

Find a local coffee or candle shop, a small business owner, that sells stuff she may not be willing to pay for (like maybe she buys the cheaper product at a discount store, but would really love to have a 'good' candle set. Buy some stuff to put in a basket, include some other things you think remind you of her, like a CD of music she likes or good gloves or scarf, or a special key ring, and include the candles or coffee - along with a gift certificate to go back to that store. Or if it's a place that has classes, include a certificate for the two of you to go together for such a class.

Re: Need gift ideas for GF

What I find to really work is pick a beautiful piece of wrapping paper,go to hallmark and buy the most romantic,soppy Christmas card you can buy and after you put it in the envelope wrap it in the gift wrapping.
Oh and fill the envelope with as much cash as you can afford!

That is what the ex wife would want. I found that I could not fit a hand grenade in the envelope

Well you need to use more than one sheet of gift wrapping.
