    So I was trying to find a present for a friend's 20th Birthday and I thoguht maybe I'd get her some jewelry. So I had a look around town and bought a necklace for her. It's nothing fancy, it's basically a silver chain with a pendant in the shape of a butterfly.

    Anyway, I was thinking about it a bit more and I suddenly had the thought maybe this would come across as a bit weird - I've not really known her that long (about three months at most) and I'm a bit worried I'll be thought of as a bit of a creep if I hand her that as a gift.

    So basically, what does everyone think? I'm probably worried about nothing, but I wonder if its best to play it safe and just buy a CD instead...

    Why would it be creepy? It sounds like a nice gift. I had a friend who I'd known for two weeks who bought me a necklace for my 16th. Nothing wrong with doing that.

    Personally I'd find that absolutely fine and it sounds lovely, but probably best to get a few more opinions!! How close friends are you now?

    I'd be quite happy receiving jewellery as a gift. Surely you know the kind of thing she likes though?

    Fairly close - we've been out together loads and always have a good laugh. I wouldn't say we're majorly close, but I'd be happy dropping her a text every once in a couple of days just to ask how she is.

    then just give her the necklace. To be honest, I think buying a CD for someone is more difficult- how do you know they like the band, or that they haven't got the CD already or something? Jewellry's better.

    Hmmm... ok, so the general feeling seems to be I'm worried about nothing... typical.

    Thanks for your thoughts so far. I'd still like to hear thoughts from others as well though - but I think I am swaying towards giving her the necklace. After all, I've gone and paid for the bloody thing now.

    Jewelry as a token of ardour is typically presented in an elegant box or ornamented container, so provided you keep the presentational paraphernalia relatively modest/light-hearted, I doubt your intentions will be misconstrued.

    Mattaf, this Profesh guy is a TSR legend with his vast use of vocabulary.

    Eloquently put, Mr Profesh!
