    Default One Year Anniversary

    So coming up on the one year anniversary for the girlfriend and I. Any suggestions for gifts. We're preety serious and she's pretty special, I've already got something in the works but figured I'd see if any BGP'ers had some good suggestions.

    I still haven't decided, depends on what I can come up with, more than $100 less than $1,000. Ha I know that's kind of broad. Ideally I'd like to spend a couple or few hundred dollars.

    Jewelry

    Day at a Spa

    Hot air baloon ride - I know someone who did that but it cost around $500.00

    Designer purse (ask her friend or sister what for help on that one)

    From experience, I'd go with Tiffanys jewelry or a day at the spa/salon type package. My one year, she was 18 so a couple years difference.

    Most love Vera Bradley purses or handbags. Not sure the fuss about them but I can never go wrong with one for the wife.

    I like the Hot Air Balloon Ride and if you are thinking asking the big question, that would be a cool place to do it.

    Get her a pandora bracelet with a bead or two. Shouldn't cost more than $150 depending on the beads, and then you have an easy gift for birthdays, Christmas, 4th of July... Whatever.

    My wife is 25 and she is extremely in to Coach purses, they are around a couple hundred a piece, and I guess are a "status symbol" among women. Come to think of it don't go to the store I have a wide selection I will sell you at discounted prices. Cash only though, I have to spend it before my wife kills me when she finds out what I did.

    I to like the hot air balloon idea, but I hope that's something we can do together later in life. As for the big question, I'm pretty sure she's the one, but we still have some kinks to work out and I've already got a few idea's for that one; the fact that I can say that kind makes me sure she's the one.

    I'd say jewelry and maybe a weekend trip out of town. Don't over spend, but don't go cheap either and you'll be fine.
