Idea #7: A Gift For Your Girlfriend?

For those of you who have a girlfriend, I'm sure at some point you think or have though that this is a tough one.

Depending on your girlfriend, it can be the most difficult gift to buy.  Let's be honest... some girls are just so unreasonable right? =P  (Sorry girls hate to break it to you but we can't read your minds...)

So what am I going to get my girlfriend?  Personally I'm not one to give a surprise present for Christmas... maybe for her birthday, but not this time.  I want to make sure about what she wants before finding it.  It saves both of us stress and effort. 

Of course I'm not just going to ask her "what do you want?", seems kind of effortless that way.  I like making suggestions, mostly thinking about what she needs.  And no I'm not talking about daily needs like make up or shampoo or whatever. 

So I decided to get her a camera.  I guess you can consider it an inexpensive, or you can consider it a very expensive gift, all depends on you.  My girlfriend's camera recently died, so I think it's time I get her a nice one.  Just a compact one, not a DSLR.

 
Not gonna get this one, but you get the idea.

Who knows?  Maybe you're gonna run into the same question I did, and perhaps you might also find that a camera is an appropriate gift.  In any case, happy shopping!

If I had a girlfriend, I'd probably spend the same amount of money on her as I do everyone else, because I'm cheap XD You're very considerate though, a camera is a great gift!

A camera is a perfect idea! The only thing I am having a hard time with is my older sister, who happens to have a great salary and everything she wants and needs. What do you give these people?

Pretty cool idea. I actually got that for my wife about 3 years ago. This year, she and I will be going on a little vacation as well as I got her some special, super-expensive headphones that she's been wanting.

I've asked my girlfriends of the past what they want because I hate to play games with things we want, and it usually worked out okay. When something couldn't be gotten, or wasn't known, I would usually make a mixed CD of music and take her out to dinner somewhere nice. That usually works for birthdays at least. I never had a girlfriend during Christmas time, heh.

A Hermit said...

I have no idea what I would buy for a girl, and don't most of them already have cameras?
>Unablogger said...I'm getting mine a sandwich grill
Awesome

Reason said...

That's the beauty of imaginary girlfriends, you don't have to buy them gifts.

cooperlife said...

a good camera is a great idea for a girlfriend. not long does she get the camera, but now she can take dirty pictures to send you while you're at work.

kwile said...

Looks like a good camera...but don't have the gf to go with it. lol

MRanthrope said...

I got my GF a Canon powershot a few years ago and it's still amazing. Cameras are always WIN for girls.

Billy said...

What's wrong with asking someone directly about what they want? Seems like it would prevent a lot of disappointing presents.

Willow said...

Give it to her now, so she can take pics of Christmas.

HTT said...

good idea !

erics said...

girls can never have too many cameras.

Ryan said...

That would be a good gift for sure. Girls always appreciate things with a bit more personal touch, but if her camera broken, then that shows consideration on your part, so it works.

Domino Master said...
