shoes
puppy
jewelry
clothes
vacation

basically, something expensive that does you no good and has only marginal utility for her but that she can show off to her friends and others.

no gadgets, nothing requiring assembly, nothing with an instruction manual, and nothing that she can't put on social media immediately. like if you get her a vacation, get a postcard or something about that place so she has something tangible.

I am trying so hard to avoid this but I know if I do then I am going to come home from work within the next month and we are going to have at least a dozen dogs and instagram accounts for each of them.

The worst. I can't stand how self important people are with their dogs.

Dec 8, 2014

I was at the nail salon yesterday with my fiance and there was a lady getting her nails done that actually had business cards made up for her dog with the dogs social media accounts on them....

I think there was even an email address, for the dog...

Take her out to a nice dinner, bring her back, say her package is all wrapped up, give her a wink, and see if appreciates a good Christmas slongg. If not, dump her off, go to a bar, and repeat.

Jewelry always works. Chicks dig getting that little blue box. It's safe, you can spend a reasonable or ungodly amount of money (Tiffany's actually has pretty decently priced silver jewerly, and they still get to open the blue box) and she can show it off to her friends. Or if you can get an ok priced designer like David Yurman and she can brag to her friends. You're actually buying it for her friends.

David Yurman

yes, if your girl likes showing jewelry to her friends and wants the same thing everyone else has, david yurman bracelet, michael kors watch, tory burch bag, frye boots, barbour vest, lulu pants, SBUX PSL, and a new iphone.

or just google "white girl starter kit"

David Yurman. Just nice enough to make her friends incredibly jealous but not so nice to the point it breaks the bank. I did the bracelets, necklace, earrings circuit and its nice because once you're done it gives you a few years break before you have to start buying jewelery again.

How significant is your significant other? Like, a few months, years, about to propose? That makes the difference for what I'd be getting my significant other.

I've never bought my wife anything for Christmas. Nothing for her birthday or Valentines, either.

She's got her own banking job, her own salary and her own credit card, so she takes care of her own spending. In any case, she's not into buying things and probably spends more on fitness gear for jogging than anything else.

On a different note if you aren't shopping at Harry Winston you are doing it wrong. Not that I ever have because I don't have a girlfriend just a black book full of call girls.

Vacation because when this relationship goes south you aren't getting the bracelet back. Plus you'll get more bang for your buck, no pun intended. If you've got more money than you know what to do with and you're married, whichever flora collection at Cartier that suits her.

Wait, hold on. Wso, the land of non drinking virgins magically posts strong when it comes to dog IGs?!

Haters, all of you. IMO, I'd rather see a little fur God on my I than endless duck faces and moronic selfie.

And if you get jewelry, get real jewelry. I cannot feed into tiffanys trash and colored glass from turdman.

I'll probably get my GF a tennis bracelet, but I'm expecting a sizable gift in return. TBH, as a percentage of income I get more than I give.

My wife has asked for new perfume the last three years. She also loved the nike workout gear I got her like 3 years ago...which doubled as a gift for me ;)

I typically would get her a few nice small things. That way I'm insured that if she doesn't like something, odds are she'll be compensated with liking something else (at least a little). Never clothes though, only took me once to learn that.

As a girl I can give small recommendation.
Guys since your 'banking hours' are precise and your girls are aware about it, make smth that requires some efforts and time. Impress them, don't limit your imagination to fancy trifles. It may sound obvious, but most of you usually forget about it.

Last christmas my bf nailed the gift-giving. He gave me:

- a white gold / diamond necklace
- PS3 games
- a polar bear stuffed animal
- trip to paris
- sex...five times in one day (we didn't actually leave the hotel much)

The best gifts I received were jewelry, a designer handbag, perfume and lingerie. But the lingerie should be a joint gift with something else, otherwise it just comes off as a little "meh". Also spa packages go over really well.

key thing to remember is, women arent materialistic.....

:)

suckers to those spending that much on the same shit as every other guy. Put a lot of effort into finding the right present for her, dont spend too much and if she isnt blown away by it, dump her in the new year.

Feb 7, 2015

Get her a box of condoms. It shows you still think she's sexy AND you're responsible. And you don't want kids right now. You really don't want kids right now.

Backup plan? Edible underwear. Make sure you get the kind made with real sugar. Nobody likes a substitute.

Feb 7, 2015

Get her the Wall Street Prep premium package, force her to learn it, and then get her hired in IB somewhere. Watch as she rises the ranks because she is a woman and that is the new trend these days (I'm a douche). Retire and let her make the money for you while you play Xbox all day and watch Sportscenter highlights at night.

Is it just me or is that thing ugly as fuck? Cute idea and all but I wouldn't get that for anyone.

Also, $75 is fine, but I would find something else.

Feb 7, 2015

Girl here. The thought is sweet, but honestly, the picture thing is ugly and not much different than one of those cheap Hallmark or CVS 'art' pieces. If I received something like that I would definitely not think it was expensive; <$20 would be my guess. (This wouldn't be true if she had a particularly uncommon name though.)

My advice would be to get something that shows that you know her -- something related to her interests or hobbies.

She actually has an unique name. I think this is a creative gift. Why do you think it's ugly? I get to select the letters of her name with each one being different in style.

Feb 7, 2015

Another girl here, and I completely echo cogitoergognome's sentiments (ugly and cheap-looking, no matter how unique her name is). For $75, I think you can get something much nicer. Go for the basket and toss in a movie/CD/anything.

ha my thoughts exactly.

Feb 7, 2015

Are you sure you're in a relationship? As a woman, I wouldnt consider speaking to someone via email or text as indicating we're in a relationship. Perhaps it means I may be interested depending on the situation but certainly not in a relationship. I think buying her a gift could be a bad idea as it may scare her off. I would recommend finding out whether exchanging gifts would be OK for what you guys are doing. Good luck.

PS - My advice is on the basis that this is a genuine problem.

Feb 7, 2015

although this is nice. do it only if the name is very unique. otherwise, basket is better. gluck bro.

Feb 7, 2015

when you met her did you take her down? If you have taken her to bed a couple times, I am with Tradesalot its a pen pal dude.

Feb 7, 2015

you gotta be kidding me...

You can get something from Swarovski for 75 bucks (okay fine maybe a bit more). Even a keychain is better than a frame... Or a scarf. Ferragamo sells for around $100 if you shop around Thxgiving.

Seriously!

I don't accept sacrifices and I don't make them. ... If ever the pleasure of one has to be bought by the pain of the other, there better be no trade at all. A trade by which one gains and the other loses is a fraud.

Feb 7, 2015

anyway, it is not about what to give her but about how to give her. The way to make her feel she's the luckiest bitch in the world by having you. That's what matters.

buy her a webcam so you can skype and at least get some naked pics that you can later post on here.

Feb 7, 2015

I'm with the others in this thread. $75 is fine for a present as long as it isn't a giftcard...but the picture is pretty ugly. Plus, big, displayable things like artwork are hard to give, especially if you haven't seen her place and don't know her taste. I mean, just go with a fancy candle if you need to...

Feb 7, 2015

bro - spend like an hour and write her a really 'sweet, cute, special' handwritten note. it's free and she'll definitely let you do anal that night.

You can get some decent perfume with $75 or less. Ask her about her fav brand, or choose some classics. Everytime she wears that scent, she will think about you, esp. when you are not around. Cool?

Feb 7, 2015

Are you serious?

First of all, all the smart ladies on wsoasis aside, OF COURSE women are going to say "go ahead" send a $75 gift. They identify with her- not with you.

You need to be asking guys in LTRs. Like myself. My opinion: This is not a real relationship. You have not spent many hours together and you have not slept together. This is "keeping in touch" with some romantic/sexual tension (at best). If you did that, this is what it says: "I've never even spent much time with you but I'm so desperate that I'm sending you a nice gift. Imagine what I'd do for any ho that comes along and gives me a friendly look more than once." Someone who did that wouldn't deserve a Don Draper profile icon!

Mail a nice card with a handwritten note. Maybe make plans to get together sometime in the future. That's it.

Feb 7, 2015

I'd recommend you get something cute like nursery art. You run the risk of her not liking the gift because the design is a bit complicated. Everyone likes nursery art.

It's nice. But they look like something you would give to a new born baby girl. Anyway thanks for your input, but I've made the ultimate decision of buying her the alphabet frame. In fact I just have to order it.

Why exactly would someone want their name on their own wall? Are you just trying to help out random drunk dudes she brings home who can't remember her name?

Feb 7, 2015

My girlfriend's at away at grad school atm, so I am in a similar situation. Bought her a silk scarf ($40) plus a small necklace ($60); we are also going out to a play she has been wanting to see.

Ideally I'd be able to make her something - I'm decent with glass, leather, and wood - but I am not sure if I will have time, and I am not sure how I could do a project in my studio apartment.

Feb 7, 2015

Its very nice option , But i would suggest a jewelry . Because jewelry is the key of womens heart . I would like to suggest you one site : Ergode here you can check for Best Christmas gift for her.

Feb 7, 2015

Just buy a can of spraypaint and scribble her name onto the wall. That will save you $70, and it will be an original.

My girlfriend 'accidentally' left her Pinterest up on my laptop about a month ago. Clever move on her part. Also made it very easy to shop for her.

I would agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
