There is a girl I am madly in love with and I want to get her something for Christmas. The problem is first, I have little imagination and can't think of anything really good and second, I don't have much extra cash right now. I need some ideas of some things I could get her that would show her how much I deeply care for her but might not be too extremely expensive. Maybe a few things under $20 each. Any help?

I like the simple things in life.

The best Christmas present I ever got was a little stuffed teddy bear with a heart shaped locket around it's neck 'baring' my initials. I could just imagine how hard it was for him to walk into a store and put together such a great gift.

Unfortunately, I was scared of boys at that time (I was 13). :o
That's beside the point. The point is it was a great gift that I remember to this day. :D

I was just going to suggest this. I got my wife something similar from Target our first Christmas when we were dating, then I took it to Things Remembered and had it engraved with her initials and the date. It's one of her favorite pieces of jewelry to this day. I think I spent a total of $30 on it. It's a great gift if you're starting your relationship, because it's something inexpensive, but means alot, she'll hold on to it forever, but at the same time it's not a huge commitment thing for you, so you don't risk scaring her off with something extravagant like a ring.

Are you two dating? It is not clear in your email if you are already involved with this girl and it makes a difference for choosing a gift.

Yes we're involved. It's pretty serious.

Okay. So far I like the engraved jewelry idea too. :)

You can buy already engraved jewelry. The cost will be cheaper than actually having it done. Just pick her first name or last name, since most jewelry has one initial.

Another suggestion is a home cooked meal. That's melts my heart, too. :P

If you really have problems shopping pick something that you can enjoy together and give it to her. That's how I usually end up shopping for the-wife-who-has-it-all.

For Christmas? :-? Well, I spend my Holiday's alone, so someone willing to spend a day with me cooking for me. Yeah, it's pretty sweet. :D

I'm always a fan of the homemade gifts. :) I'd often make tapes or CDs of our favorite songs, may be write a poem, frame a picture of us in a nice frame, ...

My ex-boyfriend was an artist and he made me great stuff! (oragami roses - since real ones are so expensive for Valentine's Day, little teddy bears, rings made of wire, etc. )

Also, concert/play tickets are great - our local symphony has student tickets for $5 or $7. And combined with a good dinner - it works well. :)

Also, is there a movie or CD she's been wanting lately? I really treasure some of my CDs because they were gifts. :)

Excellent idea, which gives me another... there are movies that play on Christmas. frenat could take her to see a romantic movie. It could be alone time on a busy day. :wink:
