    So what did you buy the girlfriend for Christmas?

    I just did some last minute shopping online. My girlfriend was born on Dec.22 so I also get to purchase a birthday gift.

    I went with Vancouver Canucks monopoly board with matching bottle coolers for the birthday. (She's a die hard Cancucks fan)
    For Christmas I took advantage of Thinkgeek.com's free international shipping and I'm going to put together a Dr.Who gift bag. Inside gift bag is a tardis blanket, tardis slippers, a tardis alarm clock with projection for the time, and tardis throw pillow to go with the blanket.


    I went from "I shouldn't have to tell you what to buy me" to "Wow, you're a thoughtful boyfriend" in a few keystrokes.

    How are you fellow boyfriends making out this Xmas as far as present picking?
    Same question to girlfriends of hard to buy for boyfriends.

    I should also make a note that I'm the type of person that prefers to make a memory and go away for a holiday VS feed into the consumerist craze and purchase purchase purchase.

    A large box of super absorbent Kleenex.

    Really though, i don't have one.

    I mean, there's a girl i'm seeing who has feelings for me and i think will get me a present, but do i return the supposed favor preemptively and buy her a gift?

    If you think she is worth it. Doesn't have to be extravagant just a small token to show that you were thinking of her for the holidays. I know myself when faced with this question I fall back on chocolates or something homemade. I enjoy baking quite a bit so for the inexpensive but will mean something gift I bake a variety of goodies and give away Christmas tins with baked goodies.

    The entire Avatar series (Aang, not Korra). She loves the series, but Nickelodeon is airing episodes in no particular order these days, it seems, so she wanted to see everything in order. Plus, it gives us another reason to lazy about on the couch every night

    A few books she wanted (she loves Shel Silverstein, picked a few collections), a matching necklace/bracelet set that says, "I love you to the moon and back," as well as a dinner date and a small "vacation" (I.e. Spending time with me and friends, since she's been out of state at school) before she goes to Montana for the holidays.
