    So i had a few ideas ....I was going to get her a $250 gift card to the mall where she cal go to anystore in the mall, sorta like a mini shopping spree because she loves the mall more then life it'self and i thought that to be a good idea...She's not into jewlery except she does of course have a pandora bracelet which needs beads...

    What are you guys giving to your biatches this year

    Getting her an external hard drive. She's always complaining that she cant watch her anime when she goes to her mom's (even though they have anime network). Hopefully that'll fix a lot of that.

    More than likely a Coach bag, i.e. a fancy fucking purse.

    She's had her eye on one for a while, so a couple weeks ago we went to the Coach store here in town and I made her show me the ones she likes so I have something to go off of. I really dislike shopping this time of year.

    My only advice to the OP is sometimes the gift card route is deemed as the easy way out by the ladies. They figure you don't care enough to put the time into shopping. After 10 years of marriage mine knows how much I hate shopping so she makes it easy for me.

    Even the girls that "don't like jewelry" wouldn't mind a pair of diamond earrings or something along those lines. You could find something pretty nice for $250.

    We got a new 42 inch plasma for eachother for Christmas. She has wanted to upgrade to a better model. She DVR's a lot of stuff so at night I feel bad watching my 57 inch while she was stuck on the 27 inch tube tv in the bedroom. Now we are both happy.

    a giftcard? really? you might as well get her a dremel and finishing screws.

    it's better to actually think about something and get the wrong gift then to cop out and get a gift card. if you don't know 1 thing your gf wants/needs, theres a problem.

    get her a something shiney, something fun, and something usable. you can't go wrong.

    shiney-earrings/necklace. it's really easy, just go into costco or something and say i have $150, get me something nice.

    fun-get her a wii/xbox game just for her. or even something just to play with.

    usable-get her a hair dryer, curling iron, flat iron etc. something she needs upgraded that she wouldnt' buy for herself.

    this guy gets it. :thumbsup:

    Drake, I got one of those for my wife about 5yrs ago and the neighbor has one too. Great little gadgets. The neighbor said that there are program swaps online because the little 'cards' are so expensive.

    I have a GREAT wife who doesn't really want that much at all. I've got a couple things in mind, Day at the spa getting away from the kids and pampering/massages/manicure/pedicure/cucumber slices on the eyes...
    Mostly getting things from the 'youngins' to mom type of thing.
    If I let it up to them, they would be trying to buy Bionicals or fishing gear for good ol mom.

    it's different to get gift cards if you are trying to buy something big. but never buy them for a girl. if they want something for a certain store and you cant' get it, buy them something else and give them a gift receipt and let them exchange it.

    gift cards for wife/significant other is a BAD idea. Goodbye christmas sex too...hell, if it were my wife she'd take my computer and put a bullet in the hard drive (since her sex drive is higher than mine).

    Luckily, my wife is a geek, so as long as it's tech and geeky she'll like it.

    Yeah i guess i could get a her a couple pandora beads...A Wii game or two...and maybe a nice necklace or something...

    I guess giftcards are an easy way out but they also allow the person to get what they want without the hassle of having to return it. The only reason i was thinking the Mall giftcard was the the idea of a mini shopping spree so she could have fun.....get stuff she may no have bought herself....

    why not just giver her a thong full of $20's instead? lol

    you can do what you want, but if you want her to enjoy the gift, try to make it a little bit personal. I mean, i dont' know your girl, and maybe she's a picky pain in the ass, but 99.9999% of girls like a little bit of thought in a gift.

    it's better to fail trying than to go the easy way out. she'll respect the thought. it will make her tingly downstairs.

    hell, even if you want to stick with the gift card idea, make one of those build a bear things and wrap the card in that.

    what if i wrapped the gift card in a refridgerator sized box, and each box got smaller as she unrapped until she got to the gift card?

    do you really think thats a good idea? lmao

    where do you guys come up with stuff like this? maybe i'm just more in touch with my "feminine" side, but that is a horrible idea. they make tv shows for guys this clueless. it's called "the pickup artist". you need to get inside the womans mind a little bit.

    2 boxes into it, she'll be thinking, "give me my fucking present already". then to find out it's just a crappy gift card. lol dude, come on now.

    obviously the thinking part of this is too much for you. if you dont' "know" her that well, get her a gift card and just hand it to her in an envelope. if you like her and want it to be a good gift, at least build one of those teddy bears and package it together. even if you don't give a shit about her, at least help yourself get laid.
