I’m a bad gifter for sure. 

But in the past two years, my SO has really stepped it up and got me a pearl necklace (CRAZY nice, big black/green pearls he had his mother/grandmother get when they were on a trip to China) and a debit card with enough money for us to take a trip to Europe with. *I kinda wish he’d just put the money he spent on those two gifts together and gotten me an e-ring, but that’s another story ๐Ÿ™‚

Best sentimental gift – I made him a slide show of pictures of us, little sayings (ex. “I can’t wait to be Mrs. xxxxx; I love you; Happy anniversary, etc.) and played it for him on the Wii w/background music.  He loved it Laughing

Best “gift”: tickets to see George Lopez in person! I was proud of that one b/c tickets were a pretty penny lol

The best gift:
My FH is a HUGE Buffy fan (like, HUGE!), and I got him an autographed copy of the script of the Buffy pilot episode. It’s the whole script, and then the front page is autographed by the cast.

He told his good friend (who is also a Buffy fan) who said “Wow, it’s like Gabrielle read a really, really good version of the book “The Rules”!” LOL

The second best gift is that he’s a big comic book fan, and I got him a limited edition print that’s handsigned by Jack Kirby. I wanted to get him an original page by Kirby, but those are going for like $6k or much more (just a tad out of my budget to say the least!), but the print is 1 of like only 175, and the signature is handdone by Kirby’s – it’s not a print. It’s a pretty large piece, and it’s very cool, if I do say so myself!

Hmm. I think I’ve gotten a few good ones. I got him cufflinks made from pieces of Shea Stadium, before it was torn down (he’s a huuuuge Mets fan). And for his birthday last year I took him on a sunset boat ride around Manhattan, and we were served sushi and champagne ๐Ÿ™‚ (unfortunately we weren’t by ourselves, as theer were about 15 other people on this boat enjoying the sushi and the ride as well, but it was still pretty darn romantic!).

I’m definitely a bad gift-giver and I’m like the guy in our relationship sometimes. He remembers everything I say that I like or am interested in (even the most random things that come out of my mouth when we’re driving). He’s very thoughtful!

The best he will get from me will be his wedding gift: a 42″ LED TV he’s been drooling over since he laid eyes on them at Costco. But it’s pretty hard not to give it because he’s been pining over it for months.

Best gift I’ve given to my Fiance – probably the time when before I was leaving to go backpacking in SE Asia for a couple of months, I wrote him a letter for each day I would be gone and put it in a box with a few pictures of us… which is so funny cause I am SO not a mushy person but he just brings it out in me I guess.

I gave him all the seasons of Smallville and Stargate last christmas. I didn’t consider it that good of a gift but Fiance went CRAZY lol if he only knew I got them all on sale on black friday ๐Ÿ˜‰

Best gift he ever gave me? Well he has given me tons of expensive gifts like on x-mas he got me a HUGE Coach tote a Coach wristlet and my two pairs of UGG’s or for my last b-day a shiny brand new Sony Vaio laptop but the best gift ever was for a V-Day he WROTE me and recorded the song for me! He is soooo shy and yet he sang a song for me, He doesnt sing or write! OMG it has seriously been the best gift I have ever received.

My Fiance is a HUGE pearl jam fan and they were playing last Halloween in Philadelphia. Fiance is also a huge history buff. SOOOOO I bought tickets and a hotel room and we drove down from Boston area for the weekend and did site seeing. It was a amazing. Each year I take him on a weekend getaway usually to Boston because I can’t afford anything more but it is still nice to get away.

I did give him a nice handcarved chess set made with real ebony wood that I know will last a lifetime.

But I think he likes the netflix subscription the best of all the gifts I’ve ever given him.  Easy to please!

Our first Christmas/birthday together (our birthdays are right after Christmas) I got my Fiance (then BF) a Wii. His face lit up and he looked like a child on Christmas morning. It was awesome!!!
