hey guys whenever i try to think of something to buy for my girlfriend, i end up just scouring the internet for hours on end with no results. i have been dating her for about 4 months and want to get her something fairly nice for christmas. she is heavily into fashion and designers so i figured some of you would be of great help. few things about her; she is a college student / sorority girl (chi omega), wont wear gold and she is into coach. im wanting to spend about $100 on her (im poor) but i hate everything coach so im trying to get her something to veer her away from the designer. perhaps something from ralph lauren or marc by marc jacobs? i am open to any ideas, i love her a lot and dont want her to be upset with her gift on christmas, which is greatly impeding my decision making process. any help is appreciated thanks

Could you post pics of her. It's necessary before any of us can provide informed advice.

3-way with a sorority sister?

Tell her it will make your relationship stronger

This isn't difficult. Buy her something Coach. You know she likes it. If you're worried about buying something she won't like, don't chance it buying something just because it suits your preferences (i.e., Ralph Lauren or Marc Jacobs).

If she's "the one", you'll have plenty of opportunities to steer her in the direction of things you prefer. For a first Christmas gift, I'd play it safe.

Since you are buying for her, your hatred towards everything Coach should not come into play.

Get her something from Coach.

Or get her a Ipod Nano or something similar.

It's only been 4 months. Don't set a precedent that you cannot consistently meet since you're a poor college student as well.

I'd say get her a pair of winter gloves from Zara. Should be less than $100.
