    We've been dating for almost 2 months. We're really close, and totally enjoy being together.

    Any ideas? :)

    Hmm... after 2 months? I sure hope you know her well enough by now to get her something you know she'd like.

    Oh definitely some chocolate. :) She's as big a fan of the simpsons as I am, so maybe a chocolate homer or something :mamoru:

    A bouquet of flowers (too bad daisies aren't in season :hs: Her favorite)

    Yep, basket o' novel,yet meaningful, somehow personalized, crap is always good. lol If you make it cute, it will impress. (I'm a girl, well, an "old girl", lol, so I am giving you a female perspective too, as did Mars.)
    For 2 months of dating, don't go nuts and get her diamonds or anything way expensive, though.

    Good to know. :)
    I know of a few people who would do something crazy like that. I don't understand it. Money to burn, or something, I guess.

    What about a little hand-made book of coupons like the following:

    1 free snuggling
    unlimited free hugs, etc. :)

    Well, I think that's very sweet if you feel like that is her style.

    We really enjoy snuggling on the couch, in bed, etc. I told her when we were snuggling the morning after we first slept together that I'm guilty of being a snuggler. She said that she is too

    How about a big piece of Salt Cod, a bag of Dulse and a bottle of Schooner?

    If that doesn't work, give her something from your heart, something she will like, cherish and remember and Sweetie, don't forget the chocolates and a big old fluffy Easter Bunny for her to snuggle to on those nights you aren't together.

    I am so happy for you.

    Downloaded a bunch of cute coupons to print off and customize for her. I was thinking of tying a red-yarn rope aroound a fluffy bunny with all the coupons attached to them, and some chocolate. Maybe a nice candelight dinner, too. And the flowers.

    :) Sound good?

    We missed Valentines, only started seeing each other Feb 11, so it didn't feel right to do romantic stuff 3 days later.

    This is our first holiday-ish thing together, andI want to make it memorable. :)

    It's Easter, I'd rather get her something for her birthday or a 1-3 month anniversary type thing.

    Uh, I don't know about that...

    You might as well put the final coupon as "My balls" and hand them over eternally.

    Snuggling up with your lady is nice and fun at times, but this is a bit silly IMO.

    Awwwww...where's your sense of PuppyLove Doggy?
    Showing someone you care is NEVER wrong.
    I think Green's idea is kind of comforting...it makes me all fuzzy and warm...I wish someone would do that for me....especially when I know it is coming from the heart.

    I'm not surprised you said that, being female. Unfortunately there are a lot of things that women say are sweet, cute, good ideas, etc and guys ended up finding out weren't such a great idea afterwards. Kind of like when a girl tells you to keep being that emotional sweet guy because that attracts girls, only you've never had a girlfriend and the girl telling you this has no interest in your either.

    I am not saying that it isn't a good idea to show someone you care, but there are such things as overdoing it, and I think that kind of present is going a bit far.

    Instead, why not put something a little more sexy in there instead of "free cuddling"? Why not put, "Free massage" or something even a little more provocative? That's a lot better than saying, "Use this coupon and get unlimited cuddling from me!" I dunno. Sounds wimpy and cheesy.

    You may find it silly -- we both REALLY enjoy snuggling. We snuggled for a while last night on the couch, and afterwards in bed. She fell asleep in my arms -- I tell ya, when you really care about someone, having them fall asleep in your arms is so comforting, and it lets the heart know how much the other person trusts you. The shitty part was that I had a 1 hr drive home. SHe lives just over an hour away, but the distance doesn't bother me, the separation does.

    I did not say that snuggling up with your lady is wrong, or that you shouldn't enjoy it, but I simply think that idea is a bit over the top. It reminds me of the movie "Bedazzled" when Brenden Frasier turned into the wussy guy who cried everytime he saw the sunset, and then his girlfriend-who loved him-ended up leaving him because he was simply lacking too much testosterone.

    I am not saying you do, I don't know you, but the idea is cheesy. I don't mean to be rude, you asked for advice and I am merely offering my opinion that this is silly. The chocolate is a good idea like everyone recommended, and so is a notebook with something sexier. I mean, it's Easter man, it's not even like it's Valentines Day or anything. It's a bit much...
