Birthday gift idea for my gf?

It's her birthday day on November 6th.
I don't know what to get her.
I got her a silver bracelet when I got back from a trip to British Columbia this summer.
And I got her a diamond/white gold necklace for our 6 months.

She can't wear rings cause she has egsima (sp.?)
And her ears arent pierces


She says all she wants is to be with me... but I dont believe that. Haha.

Don't know what kind of bracelet you gave her, but...

If this is going to be an on-going thing, why not give her a charm bracelet? You buy the chain and one charm for her birthday, and then as occasions arise, you give her another charm symbolic of the occasion.

Or ask her girlfriends what she really wants...

Thank you NancyG
You're getting me thinking.
I'm thinking one of those roses now.... A glass cut rose or something.

Send a dozen roses!!Jewelry is always a desired gift -take her out for a nice romantic dinner!!!!!! I have a feeling you will go out of your way for her and that in itself is a great "priceless" gift - Tell her Happy Birthday for me

The "I only want to be with you" is sincere when we girls say it, but lets face it, we do appreciate a gift too. Are you going to make her a birthday cake too? Jewelry is always lovely and it sounds as if she has appreciated your taste before, which is a huge commendation....not all guys choose good stuff you know!

Gobo, the bracelet sounds really nice. As for the eczema, I'm guessing it doesn't heal too well, because of the cold at the rink (it is ice speed skating, right?)

How about tickets to a concert? Or maybe you could make her a CD with all of hers and your favorite music on there (make sure to add in some of the music you play too)

I'm worried that all her friends are guys.
