26, into music. Is Scottish. Um, just moved.
Help. I'm seriously f**ked for ideas.
/buy her a cd/do both
does she like pretty things? get her something thats her style in jewellrey
thats how you'd win my heart
Id be happy
No no no no no.
body shop: admirable ethics. dull, dull products.
if you're gonna buy toiletries [acceptable if you get something that smells gorgeous, or looks beautiful - otherwise giver her credit for being able to choose her own shower gel, eh?], be more imaginative. there's just something really depressing about receiving body shop stuff as a gift.
you would totally fail if you bought me stuff from the body shop.
unless it was something really quality/that i'd specifically asked for.
buying toiletrees just says you didnt know what to get them
and the offer of a massage?
but i get massages whenever i want them anyway :D
shall I just list stuff I like?
coffee table books
handmade/plastic crappy looking jewellery
scarves and gloves (hats are too risky)
handmade compilation cds
alternative comic books about romance and music and cats
American teen drama box sets
films about teenage losers
I hate having to buy presents when you don't know the person well enough.
Good suggestions though. Thanks.
I'm gonna avoid sex toys, anything to expensive and no offense twee, but I was told by a girl once that the WORST thing to buy is Body Shop gifts. It says "I'm clueless" all over it.
if you don't know her, then steer clear of anything too personal!
so I should buy something kinda personal. Right?
So - is it just 'a gift', or is it a bday or special occasion. IMPORTANT.
and NO PHOTO FRAMES.
as in the wine glasses.
get her a frickin HMV voucher.
i like it. means i can buy whatever i want!
but i'd rather that then some shit...
Why don't you know her too well?
So it's personal but not wrong. Argh.
Book with lots of pictures.
Something kitch/quirky is always good. For example, one of my best friends bought me a really pretty set of juggling balls (despite knowing I can't juggle) and a little cactus plant for my birthday and I loved it.
is so thoughtful that even if it's a bit crap she'll still be massively touched.
Things that can't fail with me:
Nice meal/drinks your treat
Being taken to a gig
nice wine, nice chocolate, nice flowers
A book that you think I might enjoy
etc. Definitely not smellies, photo frames, candles or cuddly toys.
flowers are always good
an inexpensive musical instrument?
some mittens (I've just bought some top ones)
Buy her a tuba!
I'm on form.
like the musical instrument idea. We should totally date.
Well, not my actual dream. But you know what I mean.
and a nice bottle of red wine.
and some decent cheese.
and do like, a personal wine&cheese night with her nice new glasses.
You would definitely get laid.
and some posh Japanese rice crackers! That would be lovely.
Have a good potter around town, and deliberately go to lots of shops with jewellery and stupid little trinkets and things. Wait until she sees something she likes but can't afford or that she likes but doesn't think is really worth the money. Go back the next day and buy her that something.
you can have my four disc season one and two of the twilight zone if you like :)
sci-fi is always scarier if it's in black and white
anddd i have forbidden planet, fancy a date movie????
of mr men books.
you're a smooooooooth operator. Smoooooooth operator...
Gorgeous but delicate perfume, actually can't fail to smell good one ANY woman. Stylish packaging, £38-£40.
Congrats on new girlie btw :)
i mean, it's all about how it reacts with your skin... and it took me alone aaaaaaaaages to find my 'smell'...
But yeah, Moker, congrats n that... glad you got over your mentalist last lady finally.
but I have never come across anyone who smells bad with issey on - male or female - it must have some kind of universal skin beautifier scent-thingy. and it's subtle enough not to be offensive to anyone.
like a 50s toaster
to get your new bird. I'm glad we're not going out! Here, have a toaster/iron/tabard/set of steak knives/holiday to Bradford.
it's quirky AND useful
