    Totally agree with you, if a guy was to spent that amount on his girlfriend, he would have recieved a all sorts of devious looks from her. Girls get away with everything :mad: Us guys may not show it but we like to recieve good gifts too dammit :stomp:
    Haha. With most girls today, anything less than a really expensive watch, perfume or bag would mean serious trouble. :p:

    My friend gifted his gf a high-end car for her birthday. Luckily, she wasn't with him solely for his money (quite rare today).

    Point taken.



    SORRY :eek3:
    It was sarcasm (though I really do agree with the point made about the budget). I was actually trying to throw a tantrum like girls do :laugh: I guess it's more obvious when done in real life.
    Anyway, £25 is okayish, depends on the relationship aswell, if you've been together for a month then it's fine. If it's been a year, step it up girl!

    Just because some of us have said that it is quite a small amount doesn't mean that you should stretch yourself too much.

    Go a little out of your way but get something that you can afford.

    I agree with this to some degree... but you have to live within your means. if the OP cant afford more than £25 then im sure her bf will understand. when i was 17/18 £25 was quite a bit of money for me.

    anyway the link i gave has a variety of picks that can be engraved that start at £17.

    No don't worry I know you were being sarcastic:p: . It'll have been around 4 months and you're right...25 is a little cheap I have to admit.


    My ex remembered my birthday a couple of days before and got me a box of chocolates which he found in his house. We'd been going out 6 months...******* (that's not the why we broke up though! :P)

    ANYWAY. yeah. I'll stop talking now

    Very good point made actually. That didn't cross my mind, in which case if £25 is what OP's budget is then stick to it. Besides, these things are more of a formality anyway, people have said this too many times so it's kind of lost its meaning but it really is true, it's the thought that counts!

    my boyfriend got little gadgets for his birthday and he was overjoyed! i got him a hoodie and a bracelet, he was really pleased... i'm sure your boyfriend would appreciate anything

    me and my boyfriend try not to spend more than £30 on each other at xmas/birthdays because we're quite poor. we've been together nearly 3 years, by the way... can't believe people are saying £25 is cheap! it's really not considering some couples don't give each other presents.

    It depends how long you've been with him ...well I would think it does anyway.

    If its been a while, just get something heart felt that would be more of a keepsake
    So if there's something personal, get it engraved somewhere or buy something to remind him of a memory or something.

    That way it doesn't have to cost the earth and will still mean something.
    If he's that into science stuff, other people are bound to get him stuff like that right?
