    Uh yeah...since we all know her and her interests better than you we WOULD be the logical choice to ask, huh?

    How about a nice new bass. What's your price range?

    it would help to know how old you both are - where you see the relationship going, how long you have been going out, what you have gotten her before, what your price range is - details man, details

    ok, im a sopmore and she is a freshman. we have only been dating for about three months now so i dont plan on spending a huge amount of money but i want to get her something nice. her fav colors are pink and black if that helps anything, she likes music (rock), bands like rolling stones or aerosmith and some newer bands. she loves animals, she likes sports, she likes movies.

    Something homemade. I'm talking masculine arts and crafts. Are you good with wood? Carve something.
     
  10. I'd be happy with a box of chocolates and a bunch of flowers (preferrably not fake, though). It's more of the thought that really counts - a card could also work, but it's just a card... if you got me all three, I'd love ya forever. :D

    :rolleyes: :p

    are you talking high school or college when you say freshman and sophomore?

    anything that shows you thought about it for more than 10 seconds is usually a good start

    Women love flowers, as far as I know.. So perhaps some of them and something small?

    teddy bear?

    not sure if they have these anymore, but two years ago this one girl at my high school got this talking bear with a barry white-type voice for her anniversary.

    ...and now that couple is married. i think. not sure if they still are. lol.

    but that could be a safe bet.

    girls always know better than boys
     
  16. Three months and you STILL don't know ANYTHING that she likes. Shoes, books, CD's, anything.

    Triple Tsk!!

    How about turning her on to some new music she may not know about. From the VERY short list of Music she's into (and because IMO they are VERY under-rated and FANTASTIC albums..) I would suggest:

    Morning Wood: Fantastic acoustic rock album, great playing, great vocals, 5 originals and the rest are classic rock covers (Eagles, Nazareth, etc) Plus it's a cool subliminal band name!!!
    http://www.nehrecords.com/SHOP/HarnellMorning.htm

    Westworld: Same Vocalist (Tony Harnell also from TNT, but they might not be her thing) Great Rock Band. Any or all of their CDs:

    Westworld {ST}: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/A...45443/sr=ka-3/ref=pd_ka_3/002-9638573-5496020

    Skin: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/A...45443/sr=ka-1/ref=pd_ka_1/002-9638573-5496020

    Cyberdream: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/A...45443/sr=ka-2/ref=pd_ka_2/002-9638573-5496020

    I'm sure others can suggest others or if you can give us some others she listens to. I think (and my wife agrees) that there is no greater gift than being turned on to music you've never heard of before.

    i just threw out a couple that she likes so u could get the idea of the kind of music she listens to. she also likes scorpions, pink floyd, smile empty soul, primus (I'm considering getting this one for her), ac/dc, tom petty, green day, red hot chili peppers, avenged sevenfold, trapt and regretfully she does like some country. thats all i can think of right now.
     
  19. Well, I'm just saying that's what I'd like to receive.

    Or you could take her out to dinner.

    Yeah, actually that's not a bad idea - roses, chocolates, and dinner. d00d, you follow my plan, and you'll be happy by the end of the night. ;)
     

  20. +1.. heck yeah listen to the lady.. she knows what shes talking about :cool:
