For the past few weeks I have been wondering about what sort of gift to get my ladyfriend. We've been loving, in love, whatever, for awhile now and it's pretty intense. Thing is she's leaving for the summer and I'm off to college when she gets back. We are gonna try to figure something out about that and fortunately that is not the topic of this forum (fairly sure that whole topic is beaten to death all day long). I am trying to get her something special as a birthday present/prom present/ send off gift.
So after much deliberation, I went ahead and got her a sterling silver locket with her initials etched into it. (cliche but idgaf). I was as smooth as a guy like me can be but she was sort of on my trail about it. She subsequently told me she HATES the idea of getting jewlery. I'm betting this is a front and going ahead with the idea anyway. Fingers crossed.
So the question is...
Have you ever gotten or given a gift that got a real resounding response? What was it? Why'd you get it? Etc. etc.
(also if it's an opinion about my gift you have, speak my friend.)
I find that jewelry, while the most obvious gift to get, is often the worst... The fuck do us men know about jewelry or what women like about it? I tend to stay away from it. Then again, I'm not offering a better idea, so fuck do I know?
