i need IDEAS. seriously.
I have made my ex a portable easel thing out of an old cigar box, because she used to paint a lot but not having any supplies with her at uni has led to her stopping.
Babyliss Radience Pro 230s
Oh yeah! (Yes, this was on the wife's list last year.)
anything less than GHDs are frowned down upon.
Or something. They're not but they're EXPENSIVE and those Babyliss ones have a steam function like an iron. Well cool.
Young, Gifted @ Black: The Story of Trojan Records
Coco Before Chanel DVD
Jan Constantine make-up bag
Some gloves from M&S
Green & Blacks, Fry's Turkish Delight, chocolate money
Thigh boots from Office.
Pretty specific, but that's what I'm getting mine.
I have bought my sister:
a t-shirt with a cat on it
a brooch with a cat on it
series 2 of Gossip Girl DVD
a John Hughes box set with Weird Science/16 Candles/Breakfast Club
then I'm also going to get a series of books, some perfume, some earrings, and some kind of craft kit, but I haven't decided on/got any of these yet.
i'm getting my brother a dvd and a tshirt. both cost less than £10.
and fashion, so i should be safe :p
A nice dress, some perfume, books (the penguin great loves series is awesome) knee high socks, mittens/gloves ( http://www.asos.com/Asos/Asos-Leopard-Print-Faux-Fur-Mitten/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=828093&SearchQuery=leopard%20print%20mittens&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Natural <---- they look like paws!!!)
i think if i was given this i'd be fucking angry.
Try to get to know the things she likes and dislikes, her hobbies and her interests. This may give you a clue. If not, then give me her phone number, I'm sure I'll be able to help you out.
It's what I want every christmas and can't afford. I have been eyeing up violins for a YEAR now
or some sexy underwear
What a fucking mistake!
Although the ring is not ready yet but I've paid for it.
So, how did you propose? With your leg in a cast? When's the wedding? Do you need any ushers? Is Sir Cliff's fella doing the ceremony?
No dates yet, I won't even entertain talk about it until after xmas... the only thing I want is, instead of a cake, rounds of cheese in the style of a tiered cake.
Sir Cliff is getting his lisence (lisense Theo) just for the date.
bang goes christmas
I don't know, but if I had a boyfriend I WOULD LIKE:
Some cute over-priced vintage jewellery from one of the vendors on here:
A photography book
...you haven't said what she's into...
that's why he has to get her something REALLY great
I'm thinking if he has to ask people on-line what to get for his girlfriend, it's a lost cause.
made it sound like it was gonna be linking to a much sexier photo than that.
- a framed silkscreen print of a gig poster i've designed of the bjork gig we went to which was our first proper date.
- a hot water bottle (cos she's always fucking cold).
- a selection of fine cheeses from around the world.
- a sack of potatoes (an in-joke).
i'm on the dole so there ain't no "oh darling i've bought a week in the finest hotel in venice" bullshit for me.
it's not too late now to: DUMP THE POTATOES
DUMP THE HOT WATER BOTTLE
the print seems a bit overly creepy and weird? so maybe do a different picture for her of something unrelated to her/you
fine cheeses seem good. Get a nice musical instrument, chocolate, jewellery ( as shiny as possible, not too large, has to be worn out, and a gift voucher for her favourite shop
heed my advice
chocolate is cheap, jewellery get from M&S (cheap but looks expensive) gift voucher can be for 20 pounds, musical instrument can just be a ukelele or something, it's just something fun.
and take her to the cinema
cos you can reuse them and there is no fuss about change
we've been going out nearly 2 years and i've known her for longer.
1. she knows about the print and specifically asked for it
2. the potatoes and hot water bottle she'll love cos she's actually got a sense of humour
3.she hates jewellery, has all the instruments she needs (as she mainly uses reaktor/logic) and doesn't have a favourite shop cos she hates shopping
4. she's not you, she's not some materialistic jebend
1. if she asked for it that's ok, i was picturing tht you'd been dating for two months and working away on that on the sly:P
2. yeah, but also get her other stuff which she will love cos they're things she wants. Even if you don't have the spare money, what is a hundred pounds for spending time with her all year?
3. what shop does she use most often rather? Are there any she goes to most often, getting her stuff for free would be a treat. Even if it is something dull like food
4. Nah I buy everything myself, but I would still be very sad if my boyfriend got me this after spending all my time with him
but if this is the only time she will get presents off you(and probably not be getting much from anyone else) than why not get something nice?
Its a very patronising attitude you're displaying insinuating that you know better than him.
actually i shower her with gifts so christmas means nothing.
How do you know all her friends and family are dead? HAVE YOU BEEN MURDERING THEM?
do you lot just want puppies, flowers and diamonds?
god, so glad i've got a northern lass...
The Twilight Dildo.
given that we need a new garage roof, oh romance
erm, my best present was a bag like a ghetto blaster and a model of Bruce Willis from Die Hard
jewellery is always good...or tickets for something?
I would not be too pleased, unless maybe it was a mixtape. I had a boyfriend once who painted a vase and some candle sticks for me for Christmas. Um, thanks. Mr starshaped usually gets me a book he knows I'll like (usually a musician's biography) and a CD or maybe stuff from the bodyshop. All good. You don't have to spend loads of money.
You're a hard woman, Saz!
