I need help finding a Christmas gift for a girl I'm seeing.
I am not good at picking out gifts, sadly and need some help. I've been seeing this girl for a while, but it started just getting a bit more serious (originally, it was just casual dating). I don't want to get jewelry, because it's just too early, but I don't know what else to get her. She's a big sports fan, 20 years old and loves Christmas (like clinically loves it). Because of that love, I've already picked her up a Christmas music box which plays Christmas songs, but I can't think of anything else to get her. So DU women, guys that have had this problem in the past, can ya' help me out?

Thanks!

3. I was thinking of getting her Utah Jazz tickets.
That's where we met, at a Utah Jazz game.

22. I know, it's brutal.
Though I'm sure I could find great prices with how badly they're playing, as well. ;)

2. I'd get her something funny....
Like a dancing Santa or something else lame and Christmas-themed. Funny is casual and can be romantic, too.

10. I LOVE the Gummy hearts!
I'd love to send some to somebody I know in the hospital cardiac unit. Unfortunately, cardiac patients are not advised to eat gummy anything.

12. Casual jewelry could still be an awesome idea
if she wears it.

My ex-gf loved getting some nice necklaces and earings because she didn't have a lot of that stuff. It was nice stuff suitable for wearing to work or family events.

A Special Date box can also be a great gift. Gift cards together for a really nice restaurant she likes, a theater, and a limo service all delivered with flowers. It's a promise of a wonderful evening at the time of her choice. It's a good way to make gift cards mean a lot more than just the typical gift card.
:loveya:

Or, you could substitute a ticket to a game instead of the gift card for the theater.

13. Stocking
If she really loves Christmas and you want to warm her heart, get her a stocking filled with nice small gifts that she would like or find unusual. Girrls that love Xmas love their stockings.

Uncommon Goods is a great place for unique gifts http://uncommongoods.com /

You can get some cute, funny stuff at Archie McPhee http://www.mcphee.com /

I'm not suggesting these in lieu of regular gifts, just saying, if she loves Xmas you will probably warm her heart by doing a nice stocking. :)

15. A NICE* Christmas ornament with the year 2007 (but nothing else) inscribed
on it. *Nice= the kind that has to be wrapped/boxed. One never knows, such an ornament could have future sentimental value.

28. a spa day.
I'd love it if you'd get me one too please. or someone take this child so I can go drunk for a night.....it's been way to long since I let loose.

ok, so maybe that wouldn't work for you, but a basket from bath and body works or since she's a big sports fan how about a cool shirt from her favorite team, I'm not talking a cheap one from jc penny's but an actual team shirt.

A jersey or some other schwag from her favorite team... some tickets... there's all kinds of possibilities. :)
