Yeah I think an organizer might be my next project.  I ended up getting her a wine subscription for a year (bottles every month). I really like the custom painted snowboard idea (last season her board was stolen).  So I got a new snowboard, sanded it down and custom painted it. She loves Hello Kitty and Star Wars. I looked them up and found this great tattoo that combined them.  I stenciled the design onto the board. I added some script saying  "Fortune Favors the Bold" in latin and "Chickaboom (a pet name) Edition 2008".

Wow! That's an amazing idea! And it looks really good!

If you do blow wine glasses, you should personalize them (even more I mean, hand blown glasses is pretty personal) by adding some details with glass paint maybe? Something that's personal for you and her. Smiley

Thank you soooo much for this thread!!!
Our five month is coming up.. I really want to do something special for her but I'm not sure what, and THENnn, there's her impending birthday. It's in October but, I wanna get prepared now.
She's into: penguins, monkeys, music, guitar, Italian food, nintendo DS

Okay, in writing that list, I thought of one present but I'm not altogether sure how to go about it. You guys know those jars where people layer the ingredients needed for say, chocolate chip cookies? I was thinking about integrating that with some sort of Italian recipe but.. again, I'm not sure how I'd go about it lol.

As far as music goes, I'm drawing the treble clef for the tattoo she wants to get on her birthday (it's her 18th lol) and I'm thinking of pitching in money toward it? Even though she told me she doesn't want me to. She's so stubborn! She told me she doesn't want anything.. Grrr!!
I'm thinking about buying her a ring lol.. I'm not sure though. She gave me a ring a while ago, not a promise/engagement ring just, a ring.. idk. It's something I know she'd like but I really want to do something more meaningful too, something I didn't just buy but put time and effort into as well

I looked at rings today and I came across one I loved.. I couldn't find a picture of the exact ring online, but this is basically what it looked like:



I actually might like this one slightly better, it looks simpler and cleaner lol.

But this is going to be most of her birthday present haha.

Her five month present starts here;

Haha Smiley I'm gonna knit a stuffed animal and put this inside Smiley

i really like that ring, but it looks a ton like an engagement ring (except for the red stone). it's gorgeous, but i'd think my girlfriend was proposing if i got that from her!

aaaaand, that board is awesome! way to take an idea and run with it!
