Christmas gift

So after being separated for about six months an and filing for the big D!!
I have met someone else where life is becoming good.
My question is I would like to get her a nice gift that might is meaningful or fun.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
By the way she really likes my 911.

Get her a 911 of her own.
But for goodness sakes, do NOT let her drive yours!

Get her something nice and make something for her yourself. The personal thought is nice and if you are short on cash it helps. Do it from the heart and find something that will make her think of you ...

Budget please.

You gotta think man. What does she like to do? Does she have a hobby? Don't get here something that YOU think would be cool. When you have been out and about in the past 6 months, has there been something that she saw in a store and like, but put it back because it was too expensive? Those are always great gifts....

Kidding. iPod, or make her a CD of songs. That's personal and inexpensive. Have her listen to it while you give her a massage...and don't get frisky during the first song. Hold out for 5 or 6 songs. Massage her scalp too.

Or even better. Make her a CD with your own songs. I did that and I have never delivered so much joy before or after with a single gift.

I had several bands in my youth. We recorded a lot that I have kept stored away. So I decided to put together a CD with a few of my "evergreens". She was utterly excited, listened threw all the songs and I have honestly never heard her laugh so long and joyfully. Made me real proud...

Of course, I had to attach a diamond ring to the CD. Or else.

bkrygier,

Generally women like things which are personal rather than expensive, sure a diamond ring works but something nice and simple. This also helps so as the relationship gets better you can "get something" more extravogant

heres some tips:

1> work out your budget... bear in mind price is not an issue here

Things women like

1> Flowers
2> Choclates
3> Perfume
4> NICE underwear not trashy, and you will really impress her if you get her rght size, also a gift certificate is good
5> vouchers for a day out, makke-up, facial etc etc
6> personalised CD with nice songs
7> cuddly toys

and what I find always works is

1> leave little lovey dovey notes around (a treasure hunt around the house for a lot of little gifts
2> take her out for a nice romantic meal
3> SAY "YOU LOOK NICE" a lot,, also "I love you", "your beautiful"
(Women LOVE compliments but always say it like you mean it)

Dont fret the big stuf, thing small, sincere and personal.

A small $10 gift given with love and spirit is worth more than a diamond ring

trust me !
