I had an idea in the middle of the night last night, what about a jewellery box? Thats romantic and useful, also its a keepsake thing that she can cherish for years. (DH agrees with me- I checked)

Thanks for the idea, but she already has a nice one, along with the one I gave her with the necklace. Actually, I got a very nice deal on it. The lady selling it to me was talking so fast, and doing a great job.. haha, but amongst all that talking i heard her say they'll throw in a box with it.
So I got a .25 ... i think Carat diamond with 23K white gold necklace, along with this nice red wooden box, that opens (obviously) with a mirror and a stand for the necklace on the inside. She said the box was worth about $80.

I got the box and the necklace for $300.

I may be able to help your girlfriend with her hands. I have delicate skin, and have had problems with exema, chapped skin, and splitting fingers all my life. When I worked in the greenhouse, my hands were wet and cold all the time, and sometimes my fingers actually bled.
I have tried just about every product out there. I found that the steroid creams prescribed by the doctor just made my skin more sensitive, and actually made the exema worse.
There is a product called "bag balm" or "udder balm" that you can buy at a farm supply store, and perhaps even Walmart. It contains no perfumes or anything that can trigger allergies...and it's very soothing.
For split fingers, there is also a product called "liquid bandage" that you paint on like nailpolish, and it makes a waterproof bandage over the raw skin.

It may not sound like a very romantic gift, but if you put the items a pretty gift bag wrapped in colored tissue and add a pair soft warm gloves, I think she'll be very pleased. It's the sort of personal, thoughtful little gift that women love.

Constance I use udder cream too! I use it for my horses legs in winter and noticed that my hands got less chapped, winter sore and like a lady's hands again.....It looks funny though, the big 5 litre tub on a dressing table, lol.

Hope your GF has a nice B'day Gobo.
