    One for the ladies

    Ok girls, Need some advice. I have got a little spare cash hanging around this month and my girlfriend has been suppoerting me financially whilst i have been unemployed.

    I want to treat her to something little just to say thanks and how much i appreciate it. I dont have alot to spare, maybe £60-£70. My options are:

    1) A nice big boquet of flowers delivered to her work
    2) Take her out for a semi decent meal
    3) your sudgestions.

    How about you blokes? what do you do to treat your lady?

    My opinion only - flowers - nah. Meal - maybe, it's a lovely thought, but as a more permanent "thank you for your support" maybe a small piece of jewelry - it really is the thought that counts - a simple necklace or earrings, or a bracelet. Necklace probably most likely to be worn most often. Something pretty in silver with nice detail would do, but you can also get a selection of gold ones which aren't too expensive - check out H samuel or similar. It would be a permanent token of your gratitude and love rather than flowers which will last a week then die, or a dinner which is soon digested and gone then forgotten.

    That said I do adore getting flowers myself simply because I never recieved them before and through all my younger years was always the one left out while all the other girls got flowery gifts I never did. Now I get flowers and I love it just because I missed out before, but apparently most girls think that flowers = "bloke has done something wrong" (I don't )

    Kirsty.

    Yep, I third Kirstys suggestion. You need to give her a permamant thank you, so whenever she sees it, it reminds her of you

    Romantic dinner at home with a bunch of flowers (Not huge just a normal size) and a movie I would do.

    try and sneekily find out what her fav flowers are, use that as a starting point....then when she's not around, prep the house for a dimmly lit, and a romantic meal (providing you can cook? chicken nuggets wont cut I dont think)

    prep the bedroom maybe? and a cleaverly placed Polaroid camera on the bedside table, for some "extra fun"?

    Go for the jewellery option.

    Underwear, she'd think you've bought it for your benefit not hers.

    Good idea with a meal, however if you want something that'll last....not an option.

    If you have anything spare after getting her her necklace, buy her a bunch of flowers.
    Every lady likes a bunch of flowers.

    Jewellery and a really well thought out thank you card, but say more thank you for being you than cheers for supporting me.

    No no to the flowers, much as they look nice they can't be treasured forever.
