    Shopping tomorrow.

    here is what I now have in mind.

    1. beauty voucher for her to have something done (she did ask for lippo suction but I think my future mother inlaw will have something to say about that!!)

    2. Body shop stuff or some kind... will leave this to the ladies to sort out for me.

    3. perfume

    4. some Pandora things for her Pandora wrist band thingy ma bob

    4. a large cuddly dog

    5. hat, scarff and gloves (shes a community nurse)

    then I need to get her some stocking fillers. for the stocking she strategically hung on the fireplace.

    Are you SURE she needs a hat, scarf and gloves? Most women have loads of this sort of thing given to them as presents EVERY year!

    BHS have some nice cuddly toy dogs.

    My gf loves hats and scarves and gloves etc so I think that might be a good idea!

    Don't think I can be of much help mate - remember I am in IT so could be considered 'not normal'....but I will do my best
    The Pandora thing is good
    Perfume: only if you are SURE that there is one she actually likes or you really think you know her well enough to take a guess
    Large cuddly dog - only if he has a label round his neck telling her that he is just for now until you get a real one. I know you said you had researched a dog but can I put a word in for an abandoned one? They really need a home and you can go to specific rescue centres if there is a breed you must have. Personally I have a mongrel (they live longer) and wouldnt be without him.
    Body shop...hmmm... again only if it is her sort of thing. Not mine - got loads in the cupboard. What about some expensive make-up or face cream - it can be pretty pricey and would be more of a treat to me that some fruit flavoured bubble bath. Does she ever talk about make-up or cream? (or do you ever listen?) Can you sneak a look in her make-up bag, or better still, ask her best friend? In fact, that is always a good idea and actually gets you brownie points as it shows you are so concerned about getting the right thing.
    Jewellery is always a winner - something she can wear always like a plain gold chain or neat gold earrings or a ring (thinking of her job - not big flashy stuff - unless she likes it).
    9ct Yellow Gold 18" Curb Chain Necklace - H.Samuel the Jeweller

    These are popular with women at the moment:
    Characters / Ranges, Me to you bears - Clinton Cards
    - not sure how old you are but my son has just bought one for his gf for Christmas - he's 21

    Voucher - good idea (doubt you could afford liposuction anyway!).

    What you are missing is a present specific to her, and not just a 'woman's gift'. There must be SOMETHING you could get her that would be just for her - jewellery with a stone that matches her eyes, or a book you know she wants, or a ticket to an event you know SHE will love (and if it is something that she knows you will go to with her but wouldnt chose for yourself, all the better).
    Thoughts?

    I bought my gf a new hoover from ASDA on the way home from work!
    Apparently the current one is broke (...in the same way a car seizes up after prolongued non-use?!) so I'm going to wrap it up for Xmas!

    I'm going to present it as the only present she's getting and see what happens.... but don't worry - she's got lots of others really (bigger and better etc!)

    I guess the poor oncall proctologist at your local A&E on Christmas Day is going to be busy then Of course, the risk you play here is that you'll actually get to give her the other presents

    I should be safe - got lots of other things that I know she wants + something expensive and shiney that she doesn't know about, so that should turn things around!

    I told the GF Xmas is cancelled till the house is bought. Only a few months to go now. She bought a few things for herself from me. Be the boss, that is the best present.
