    Other than the typical Jewelry/Coach Bags/Lingerie.... or is there even anything else? I was kind of considering getting her an ipod (and hoping she uses it to while she runs... thus a win/win situation for me)

    I need some ideas; I'll prolly just be getting her a necklace from some jeweler but I kind of want to do something else...

    Throw em out there girls!

    :rofl: Do all girls really ask for that shit? Jesus, no wonder you all think women are bitches. I didn't even ask my SO for anything this year.

    I like presents that prove my SO listened to me at some point. Last year he bought me a Nano (since I was the only person left without an iPod) and I loved it. Along with a pass to a theme park so that we could go together. IMO I also think cool gifts are one's that you both can enjoy.

    I got an ipod nano last christmas, that was cool. Don't get a full on ipod, but like nano or shuffle. The regular is far too large for any girl arm and just annoying.

    Last year, I gave him a list of things I would like for him to pick from. This year we are doing nothing for each other... stockings maybe.

    I don't think presents need to be sexy or expensive things, just things she would like...books, tickets to something, gift certificate for favorite store, game or dvd, etc.

    Oy. I know it's Christmas, but it shouldn't be about the gifts.

    I know this may seem like a weird thing, but I want to find a gf who isn't that big on getting or giving gifts. A card, or something small and personal for bday or christmas, but nothing too expensive or elaborate.

    I figure, if you want something, buy it. Don't expect someone else to give it to you.

    Spend TIME on your SO, not MONEY.

    I absolutely hate the jewelry commercials...they all seem to imply that love is equated with jewelry. IT'S NOT!

    And yes, i'm still single.

    I give my FWB sexy time, she always gives me something. I don't believe in buying gifts for christmas. Keeping the christmas spirit FTMFW.

    Christmas makes me incredibly depressed. I've asked bf to totally ignore it.
    I'm only exchanging gifts with my mother, brother, and sister, as far as I know.

    No not getting engaged. I hit a bad patch financially about 2 weeks ago for our anniversary, so I'm rolling the anniversary gift into her x-mas gift.

    And she didn't ask me for the uggs, her's are falling apart and she said that she needed to get a new pair and that she was looking to buy some brown ones.

    I just got out of a LTR, so for the first time in YEARS I won't need to be spending $200+ on her for Christmas.
    Which is good, because I am going to be hard-pressed for cash until January.

    Every year though, I always tried to get her something that she wanted, that useful to her and her quality of life. I used to spend money on jewelry for her, and then realized that it was pointless.

    I thought that said skanklet and I was expecting some type of anklet to keep her chained in the house so she couldn't go out and be a skank :rofl:

    I'd rather him do something for us like a nice weekend away somewhere or maybe tickets to something we both wanted to go to.

    I have crappy spacing before too.

    Early October was her Bday. Early November was our annual anniversary. Next month was Christmas, then 2 months later was Vday.

    That was always a rough a 4 months for me financially.

    I love broadway shows and so have a couple ex's so I've gone to a show then ice skating in rockefeller center a couple times.

    It was pretty romantic, relatively original, and better than a gift IMO.

    A friend got his SO lessons in skiing because she'd never gone. Now it's one of her favorite hobbies.

    Another found some place that teaches you how to build a proper snowman and other outdoor snow activities. It actually seemed like ridiculous amounts of fun. They highly recommended it.
