Obviously it varies. Do you even buy each other stuff?
But it's interesting to see what people think is the [monetary] 'value' of a relationship at this supercommercial time of year...
Plus I'm looking for gift ideas. A thumb piano you say?
Got her a Lomo camera, and a little book about something or other.
Fuck knows how much I'll spend.
Maybe double if I can get work. I figure he gets lonely sometimes, so it was about time I got him some company.
He'd totally buy me something if he could. Or kill me. Well, probably kill me. But we can look past that, I guess.
Why would he kill me?
Why would I get him a present?
£200? If you're going to get someone that kind of present, either get them something standard, or something special. Anything in between just looks lame.
Also, urghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. That's the most ick thing I've read on here in ages. How can one person have so many goddamn issues?
and i've already (this year):
- taken her to ATP
- got her a holga camera thing and another one with four lenses or some shit
- got her an umbrella with the new york subway map on it
- bought her lots of other things
i don't know what i could get. i might do a striptease.
girls love presents and scars.
Like a tenner? I don't think I've ever bought or received anything from a 'romantic partner' at Christmas.
That's a totally different story. I'm going to give him the world. I hope he likes it
In one bizarre sex fetish marathon
I'm usually always single at Christmas. The most I've ever spent is £400-500 on an exe's 30th birthday, but I could afford it at the time and he cried like a baby with the amount of thought put in. Not exactly the desired result but obviously appreciated.
500 in a swag bag?
In shiny 5 pence pieces.
other times around £100. Then it was perfume, stuff for shaving...ehmm I cant remember what else tbh..
this year we are going to London for the night, thats our christmas present to each other, erm it was about £30 each. I guess it doesn't matter anymore though cos i think she's gonna break up with me ;__;
for birthdays £300.
another time i spent about 8-10 hours making something though, on a sunday. i could have gone to work and earned roughly £120 after tax instead. so oppurtunity costs wise i guess that is higher.
and still gave it her after she dumped me 2 days before her birthday, see how nice i am ;P
so it was my way of leaving on a high note
Couldn't you reed between the lines?
and rubbish at buying presents. I'm planning on getting mine a long out of print record, but it's disastrously hard to find. think i might need to think of something else... :(
i can't remember what i got her...i know she got me some Wire cds. I would like to have a girlfriend over christmas this year i think. I enjoy buying presents for people i like.
