    Uhhh... she's your GF, we don't even know the girl. Handy tip, buy her what she likes, not something some commercial tells you is "for valentine's day".

    Saddi's right. Look around, see what she does in her spare time. Does she have a hobby? Does she pamper herself? Does she read? sew? Shoot? Sports?

    Is there anything she's asked for or mentioned doing, with you, that you didn't want to do?

    Good luck!

    The thing with jewerly is, is she going to see it an think "it's not a ring" (if this mistifies you, watch the clip from leap year where she gets earrings instead of a ring). Again, I don't know the girl, but sometimes the little velvet box backfires.

    Quote:I agree with everything Saddi has contributed. And don't "overgift" - if you get her something really expensive, she will either come to expect that for every occasion, or feel like you're trying too hard to stay on her good side.

    Quote:So take her to a cooking store "just to look around" and see what she gets excited about. Do her pans need replacing? Maybe a cookbook on thai food that you two can try recipies out together?
