    girlfriend gift ideas

    OK, I have no idea what to get this woman for her birthday. I don't want anything lovey dovey as I'm just keeping her around until I get a better offer. I know, I'm a jackass, but an honest one.

    non biker, she doesn't really have any hobbies at all.

    get her a gift certificate for a manicure or pedicure. should be relatively cheap and chicks dig pedicures.

    I'd go with a gift certificate for a nice dinner, that way you'll get to enjoy some of it as well. That is unless she finds something better in the interim

    I created a monster with that one a few years ago. She liked it so much that she has her nails done all the time now. It means less bike money for ME!

    You could cut her hands off? More money for bikes, but more work for you.

    two things my wife really liked:

    A certificate for a "spa Day" with massage, etc. at a ritzy spa.

    a big basket full of bath stuff from Bath and Body works or similar.

    I always hated dating girls with no hobbies. Their only source of entertainment is you. Through some flowers at her for the time being, and get out there and find a girl with some outside interest and hobbies.

    Well, if you're looking for the BBD, it's always around the corner. The real question is, will you be able to pull that in as an upgrade...

    but then again one has to wonder if 2 shallow people like that aren't doing the same thing
    That's basically all life is now.
    With 6 billion people it's just a matter of finding the right person.
