    Okay, this girl was easily one of my best friends, a couple weeks ago we started thinking of each other as more than friends and we are now happily dating. There's just one problem. Her birthday is this week and I have never had to shop for a girl before, much less a girlfriend. I have asked her what she would like for her big day, but she is as clueless for what she wants as I am (or at least that's what she tells me). So, does anyone have any ideas for a present that isn't too "lovey" as we've only been dating a few weeks?

    I've been told a simple necklace or bracelet does wonders, thoughts on this as well?

    Note: We are both teens. So no inappropriate answers please.

    Yeah, jewellery is always nice. You can get nice padlock bracelets for not too much money. They are good, not too 'lovey' and suit most women ;) 

    You'll need to figure out what she prefers (silver/gold).

    A teddy bear is always cute, too :)

    Try thinking of her likes and interests instead of thinking of "shopping for a girl." If you get something that shows you pay attention to what she likes she will probably appreciate it much more than some generic thing that girls are supposed to like.

    Thanks Jazzhunter and flamepanther. Others...

    Anyway, one piece of advice one of my friends gave me was "sweet but random". Thoughts?

    Hmmm a box of crayons? So she can write you letters in class (if she is still in school).

    Uh, what flamepanther said, something she'd personally like.

    Wow, how to kill a thread in the first post. No lewd.

    If you're both teens, anything goes.

    A pearl necklace is always nice.

    Get yourself a tattoo that says *girls name* 4EVA. The less inappropriate place, the better.

    I guess, but then you're kinda getting her something that she has to wear, and unless she's into that stuff lots, then it might not be good. I'm sure he'll figure something out, though. :)

    Bake her a cake. With two tickets sticking out the top of it to that thing that she loves.

    The tickets are now diamonds.

    I'm on a horse.

    Make her a mix tape.
    Careful - it tastes like Old Spice.
    Fixed. Otherwise it's her displaying a guy wearing women's underwear. Unless she's turned on by parading guys in gals' pants.

    Haha, I wondered about my grammer when I typed it, but couldn't be bothered to think too hard about it.

    So yeah, HER wearing it. Oh and Pics or it didn't happen. :p

    I suppose an important question is how much cash does the OP have? How rich are teens these days? If cash is tight how about taking her for a nice picnic? Or see if there are any local bands playing free gigs near you. Then ask them if they could dedicate a song to her from you. Check online and see if you can blag vouchers for free entry to something like a zoo. It's the thought that counts. If how much you spend on her is an issue for her then be wary. Although also don't be an overly cheap bastard.
    I don't think my girlfriend's underwear would fit me.

    ...

    Ah, misread what you meant. :confused2

    Honestly, don't even bother with girlfriend's underwear, men's underwear is just so much more comfy. I wear tighty whiteys to bed.....love knowing that no matter how much I roll around.....i'm gonna stay completely covered and not wake up with a colossal wedgie!

    No man I know actually wears tighty whiteys.....but I had been looking at them in the old man section of target for a while before giving in and trying them - I don't regret my decision ;)
