Default What to get a girlfriend of 4 years for the holidays?

I need some ideas guys, nothing to expensive. I was thinking a track day in my car but i also think its still a bit too fast for her to drive on track.

We are both college students, so for those of you who remember times like these feel free to think about where i am at in my relationship and in life and consider what you would do.

We like to rock climb together, camp, see movies, do the whole dinner thing. She listens for piston knock while i tune too, she's the **** and i can't think of a god damn good present for her.

:(

It may sound corny, but I got my girl for the 4th year was a list of clues. Which started with a sandwich baggy waiting for her at work with small sorts of things... candies and what not with her favorite flower tied to it with the first clue... which lead to her car, where she found a note with a mix music CD, with another clue (this one was tricky) that lead to her room on her desk was a mini photo album with the last clue that lead to the first place we went for a date with me waiting with a necklace... yeah, very corny, but it worked so good, she brags to this day about it...


I needed planning with her roommate, and co-workers.


Very corny. But awesome.

Thanks to people like you the rest of us looks like an ********.
My girl gives me clues all year about things she wants and I can't remember anything by the time Xmas comes, in the other hand she writtes all the things I say I want through out the year and she gets them. I fail

Give her a hand written coupon that says you will make her a sandwich. This way she can understand just how awesome it is to say "Bitch go make me a sandwich".

Good Job! Women love that. I did that for my wife for our 13th anniversary. I left clues all over the house that led her to the light blue Tiffany box. Needless to say she was excited by the time she got to the pressie.

To the OP. Be creative. Spa treatments are always a win. They like to be pampered. A manicure or a pedicure is heaven for most women.

You don't even have to spend money.

Make a day only about her, and you pampering her. Make a coupon book with foot massages, back rubs and so on. Be sure to tell her "NO STRINGS ATTACHED". You know what I mean. That way she doesn't feel the need to reciprocate, even though most of the time she will!

Trust me, she will dig it and be impressed that you saved money.

Tie a bow around your *****. If that isn't enough of a gift for her, either you have adequacy issues or she's an unappreciative bitch. Or maybe both.

Wow...you suck for that...jk.

Maybe just take a little vacation together.

Both jump in the Miata and take some nice roads to a good getaway.

Cost is her problem, not his. And it's the gift that keeps on giving, so I think that plan is full of win.

You want a gift that keeps on giving? Get her pregnant.
