Oh for shame, yermom! You could have posted in a thread i began especially for such quandries.
That being said, please answer the following questions about this girl "friend" you are getting a gift for.
fill out as much as you can and I will do my best to help you.
3)hobbies? special interests? nerdy habbits? :
4)what are some of her favorite books, musicians,movies tv shows?
5)do you have any little inside jokes with her?? what?
6)list all of her favorite things that you know about (reflect on past conversations etc) and write them down to help you answer 2-5
then here is a little more advice.
When in doubt make a mixed bag o goodies. Chicks like variety, thought and cute little silly things. Despite popular concensus, girls are not into
pricey gifts. The reason why they may seem so is they are into guys who put effort/thought into pleasing them. We are all spoilt princesses deep
some ideas for this mixed bag o goodies
candles/incense/aromatherapy stuff from a store like whole foods
unique cutesy little candy and toys you can get from a chinese or japanese variety store (go browsing chinatown if near one)
anything with unique quirky packaging.
a cd or book she may like
(when in doubt funny goes a long way)
even handmade mixtapes (though i warn you mix tapes=looooove)
If you are already "more than friends" then you can get more personal and delve into the areas of something she would wear (sweater or necklace)
assuming you are not
Funky fun room decore is a nice semi personal-but not crossing the line gift. Do you have an urban outfitters or something around?? If not go to the
website and browse the housewears. Perhaps a cute drink mixing set or a lamp and talking goofball gag toy.
if you still are undecided please post more info about her and yourself... ie-write me a brief bio so i can get a sense of her vibe/tastes and the
relationship-appropriateness of it all....
Yea you are lucky I saw this. Your welcome!
