Okay, Christmas is coming up, and I'm pondering gift ideas for the girlfriend. We've been together about 1.5 years. We're both in college. I'm not from a rich background, but I'm solidly middle class and have a decent amount of disposable income, not so much of the parents handing it out, but I always have a job. My girlfriend has always been poor, for the most part. Until she came to college, she lived in public housing. It comes down to the practical versus the extravagant. I -could- get her a new laser engraved iPod, since I know she'd use it. However, I was thinking of getting her a really nice scarf or wallet instead - like from Burberry or something, because I really like that idea more. The scarf/wallet idea I see will happen one of two ways, and I don't know which way. One is that she'll really enjoy the feeling of having something nice and expensive-ish, and think it's totally awesome. The other is maybe she'll think it's awkward - carrying around a Burberry wallet or wearing a Burberry scarf with outfits from Kohl's/Target. I'm not sure which - would it be too awkward to have an outfit worth $20 and a scarf/wallet worth $250 complimenting it? She loves going to places like Nordstrom with me, but is always sad that she can't ever afford ANYTHING nice, and has to shop at Target for her clothes and stuff. I personally am leaning towards the Burberry wallet(cause she needs one) or -maybe- scarf, but am willing to entertain suggestions. Please give them if you have them (no gift cards, I feel they're kind of impersonal for a g/f) - my absolute maximum is $300. SF ladies, if you are out there, chime in as well!
