Re: Need gift ideas for GF

Gift card for an individual and couple massage is always a hit. Gift card to her favorite pedicure/manicure place will get used.

Diamond studded earrings are always a solid choice if she doesn't have any.

I'm getting my girl the game of Cornhole with her favorite NFL team painted on it. We always like playing it, so why not get something we can both use throughout the year.

She knows I'm saving up for a nice diamond engagement ring, so nothing crazy this Christmas.

If she likes to have fun, have parties and such, get her Cards Against Humanity. It's tons of fun for adults and great to have around.

On a serious note here is a really good idea.If you contact your nearest guide dog training centre you can part sponsor an assistance dog,either seeing eye or autistic assistance.Depending on your generosity they may let you name the dog and will always update you on training and when the dog is homed.This can be done as a gift and is also a very kind act.

This is a nice idea.

I disagree with the others somewhat. Coffee is a completely impersonal gift. I love coffee, but that's not what I want at Christmas from my boyfriend (if I had one). Jewelry, as long as it's classic (like a diamond solitaire pendant) is a beautiful idea, unless she absolutely doesn't wear any jewelry at all.

Do you have any idea what she may be getting you?

These are a great choice if she likes watching Archer. If she hasn't seen it then watch it with her first. It's awesome!!!

I am usually very good at gift giving.
Replace "cat" with "dog" and I'm your wife, lol.

Coffee: Get her an espresso or coffee maker if you don't already have one, complete with some coffee flavours. I prefer an actual espresso machine. I don't know why some people think it's impersonal. I loved it. But I'm ajunkie.
Cat: Not sure what her sense of humour is like, but my mom bought me a dog sling to carry mine around in (she's a small dog, OK, lol) and I CAN'T wait for it. You could always get her a funny "Crazy Cat Lady" mug or shirt.
Shoes: Go pick a new pair of shoes out for her. Don't ask her.. just PICK yourself. If she doesn't like them she can exchange. Same goes for clothes.
Candle: Order from Charmed Aroma! Those candles are awesome.

Re: Need gift ideas for GF

Actually my brother got his wife an electerlux top of the line canister vacuum cleaner the first year they were married, must be thirty years ago. Still married, still devoted to each other, and she still uses it. Oh, she is the managing partner in a mid size CPA firm for what is is worth.

I recall your orignal thread here on TAM. It is good to see you doing well! How are your children?

How to deal with an unrepentant spouse: an Irish person can tell a person to go to hell and have them so excited at the prospect they demand to know when, where the train is leaving and how to get a ticket. Then offer them a loan to get the ticket and a ride to the train station. Be Irish
