11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Girlfriend's Birthday on: September 24, 2005 07:35:34 PM
haha actually i'm a chick too but thanks for the help.  very good idea!

i've found that the best gifts involve decorated boxes filled with random stuff. so maybe decorate a shoebox with magazine cutouts and stuff that reminds you of her (pictures, sports stuff, inside jokes, etc.) and take time on it! that way she'll see that you really got into making something for her. maybe stuff it with a sewing kit, and a punk mixcd, and other things like candy and stuff you know she likes. maybe sports tickets, and a book of coupons for "free bag massages" and "good for one count of me saying you are right" etc. my boyfriend and i made those for each other and it was a lot of fun. maybe get some sports-related sparkly confettie to put inside the box as a filler and maybe even write things you like about her on little curled pieces of paper.

i hope that helps, if you need anymore help let me know. i get so excited about a boyfriend wanting to actually make something for his girl that i get sort of into it. i'd want someone to help my boyfriend if it was me.

So my girlfriend's birthday is coming up in November and I was wondering if anyone had any random ideas.  She likes sports, especially volleyball and softball, and she likes sewing, and punk music but she doesn't really have a favorite band.  We have a lot of inside jokes, mainly from the time before we were going out.  Anyone have any fun, creative ideas that could be gifts by themself or gifts to go with a store-bought gift?
