    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    He recently just bought a couple of cashmere scarfs !!

    What would you want your girlfriend to buy as a gift ?

    If he buys everything he wants already, don't buy him anything - not worth taking the chance that he won't really like it. Take him away for the weekend and spoil him in bed instead.

    Definitely a good suggestion , but only if her boyfriend is over 65 and always cold.

    Get him some Zam Barrett DNA Overlocked jeans. Once you get them, send them to me first and I'll make sure you bought the right ones :nodding:

    This is a solid suggestion. It sounds like your boyfriend has the ability to afford his own clothes and it's a general interest of his own, so let it be. Surprise him with a weekend trip away to focus on a hobby or interest. Does he ski or snowboard? Go for hikes? Fishing? Does he watch sports? -- take him to a game.

    It can be much nicer to have memories with loved ones rather than things. (Sometimes...)

    We just had a child so it's very hard to plan trips at the current moment. I wanted to get him something he can unwrap and would love. He does have the ability to buy himself his own things but I thought for the moment now it would be sweet if I buy him something in his interest. He could never have enough clothes/shoes. Maybe get him a Gitman shirt or Tom ford fragrance ?

    If he's like me and buys what he wants himself, try giving him something that takes time, but not money. Does he have things he's planned to do but hasn't had time? Do them for him. Make him dinner. etc.

    Buying random things as "very special gifts" is a sure way to tell him I am too busy to care. Random purchases of random things do not create memories, and afterall love is memories shared.

    I'm sure you could spare a day (drop the little one off at Nana's?), and maybe take him on a shopping trip? The day would be all about him, you could get lunch/dinner together, and that way he could pick out something he really likes and you could pay for it? I'm sure as a new dad, he would really just like some time to himself, add in clothes shopping and his wife, it sounds like a perfect day to me.

    However, I guess this hinges on whether you live near a city or metropolitan area.

    Hire a baby sitter to take care of the kid, hire a chef to come home and cook you both a sumptuous meal. If there is $$$ left over, hire an exotic dancer to come your home and after she leaves, give him your own special "gift".

    Worked for me, (US) bought a Dick leather. Hopefully if the fit doesn't work out I can get a refund of the $65 in sales tax
