    I just got my first girlfriend not long ago and I'm wondering what I should get her for Christmas? I need some ideas, what do girls get each other for Christmas?

    We have been talking for just over a month but only made it official last week. She likes working at her farm, the gym, horses, nice clothes, films, she wears rings a lot...

    You could get her some of her favorite movies that she doesn't have on DVD yet, or the books that said movies are based on. Or a nice yoga mat, or a foam roller. If she's into working out she may appreciate it! Or a gift card to her favorite clothing shop. Does she have horses? If she doesn't but wants them, you could get her riding lessons, or just a trail ride (although it may be pretty cold. Lol).

    Hmm. Ok. As you haven’t been together all that long, I wouldn’t go overboard on the expense. It might make her feel a bit weird but certainly something thoughtful would be great. If she’s ever complained about not being able to ... I don’t know, clean her hands properly after working on the farm, maybe a hand care kit from Body Shop for example and throw in a homemade coupon for a movie night out, film of her choosing. Maybe a few colourful candies and hair baubles, if she’s into that. I think small thoughtful things are better than something big just because it’s generous.

    My 2 cents. :slight_smile:

    Clothes are a good idea. Like a nice blouse or leggings or even some nice workout pants for the gym.

    I haven't had a girlfriend however my sister has boyfriend. The first birthday the boyfriend had as a couple my sister got him a designer coat and a holiday. He got her tickets to see Adele. Personally I think they over do it.

    I also think spending over €100 on a Christmas present is overdoing it. He also flies to Ireland with her when she comes home. He makes Caleb from PLL look bad and I thought that was impossible.

    Don't really know what that symbol means in front of the 100 but I suspect it is a lot of money which is something I don't have. My girlfriend knows I don't have have a lot of money and I know the same for her so whatever the gift is it is the thought that counts.

    The symbol is euro. It's worth more than a dollar and less than a pound. It used to be worth a lot less than a pound until br exit happened and the pound devalued.

    If you love someone I presume you think they are worth it.

    True. And if you have that kind of money. Not from just babysitting from time to time do I have that kind of money. :slight_smile:

    My girlfriend and I are both 15 years old and don't really have jobs other than a few babysitting jobs here and there that we get. The good thing is I live Rent Free with my Mom and she lives Rent Free with her Parents. :slight_smile:

    I live off disability benefit. I believe my family will appreciate what I get them for Christmas. Especially because I asked them what did they want.

    I get my Mom a gift every year or at least since I was old enough and it has always been a thoughtful gift even though it didn't cost a lot. She always appreciates it because she knows it is coming from my heart.
