What hobbies does she have? What kinds of things do you like to do together? Can you snoop around her house to see what stuff she has? My bf and I don't really do presents for bdays: we'll usually go out for a nice meal, but he's taken me on a rollercoaster for my birthday, once, and a few years ago we went to Ireland to see Radiohead for his. It's the planning that goes into it that makes it really special.
I really like practical presents, but I don't think everyone is the same about that (I got a handheld food mixer for Christmas last year, and eco washing balls before that, so I think maybe I'm abnormal).
Mochemoseo, if you're going to get her diamonds, I'd recommend a simulant...cubic zirconia. You should be able to buy a impressive looking rock of a ring! If she's not too fussy, she'll certainly never tell the difference and she have all the excitement and joy of thinking she owns an extremely expensive diamond. Better still, you'll be quids in, so everyone wins!
Thanks guys but the idea of diamonds is outa picture for now. Well she is just a girlfriend and not a wife. What if she we kol it quits and she leaves with a thousand dollar stone. I will have a heart attack.
May be the firs and second thoughts would be rational for the moment. Something practically thrilling. I love the rollercoaster idea. And a fancy box of her fav ordinary stuff. Nt gold treasure. Not that am stngy.
NO ONE should buy diamonds! Don't you know where they come from? "Ooooh look I have a bit of a rock on my finger; no matter that it's sale helped prop up an illegitimate authoritarian government that uses child soldiers, as long as I look pretty that's all that matters". Ridiculous!
My mother got engaged at the New Year and she went for a certified Sapphire (she got a certificate of origin stating it was from Australia) and even though the ring is stunningly beautiful it's all the more so for knowing its provenance.
