    My good friend (female) just started a new job in NYC. She also put me in touch with the style editor for GQ, who mailed me a bunch of clothes for free and took me shopping. To say thank you, I want to mail her a small gift. I do have a girlfriend, so I don't want to send anything that would make her feel uncomfortable. She likes flowers, so I was debating sending flowers. That just seems overplayed though.

    Any recommendation?

    Where you located? Perhaps you can find a local artist to paint some flowers or something special onto a nice bottle of wine.

    I am located in NYC.
    That is a good idea. The gift can't be anything too substantial, just a simple gift.

    Eh, don't know how I feel about flowers, but she does like them. Maybe just get her a nice bouquet.

    Yes, I cant bone her but that doesn't mean I don't want to. Maybe get her an orchid or just a spring bouquet?

    the plot thickens...will the gift have some hidden meaning.....or do you just want to give her a thank you gift??

    I would never actively seek out sleeping with her, but if the opportunity presented itself, I would seriously consider it.

    Anyway, this gift is just a thank you / congrats on new job gift.

    So this guy from GQ came over with a few racks of clothes and gave them to me all at wholesale cost. Descent stuff too.

    This shouldn't change the value of the gift, so I am going to send her an orchid. Its more unique then flower bouquet.

    Oh hohohoho you dog you!
    If thats the case, what about perfume! It has a hint of sexuality if you choose to go that route. Just pick whatever its not important, but DO read up on it's specs online. That way you can tell her of all the great aromas, top notes, subtle hints of bla bla bla etc and how you THINK it fits her personality because shes strong, independent, attractive...That way she goes "Awww...he cared enough to personally choose something for me"
