    Need some ideas this year for the GF. I plan on getting some stuff off Tobi, but just wanted to crowd source some ideas from the collective.

    Cheers,

    Harry.

    This year I ran out of ideas, so I asked her. She told me to get her something wildly expensive that she didn't need. So I signed her up for chemotherapy.

    besides dick in a box, I got her an orange Hermes wallet. it has one of those closures where a strip of leather loops around and fits into a palladium closure...it would bug the shit out of me with everyday use, but she seems to like it...

    GF and I of only a few months are both pretty open about this kind of thing, so we put a $200 limit in place due to the short amount of time. I figured that was pretty appropriate, given a dinner date up here can easily eclipse $100 even for something casual.

    I got her a Michael Kors fashion watch from Amazon and some crystal earrings off of Gilt. Hopefully she'll approve of my choices. She really needs a watch.

    Sweat pants and socks. It's what she wanted.
