Candi--you ask a very legitimate question which isn't "grinchy" :teehee: . I do believe we will probably see her at Christmas, so I wanted to be prepared with something thoughtful yet relatively inexpensive, and not too personal because I didn't want her to get offended or scared off if we were too personal. I didn't want to knit anything really major because she may not like it (I don't know what her favorite color(s) is/are, or what her taste is) and I didn't want to go through the time and trouble of knitting something if she wouldn't like or appreciate it. Some people just don't like handmade gifts (I'm not one of them--I LOVE handmade gifts!!!) and don't appreciate the time and work it takes to make something handmade.
These are all really great ideas, and I appreciate all of your responses.
At this point, based on the responses, some bath/body products with some candles, maybe topped off with a small box of chocolates might be a nice gift I think. We have a nice chocolate factory here nearby where I live that has awesome chocolates; maybe that would make it a little bit more fancy-schmancy? Plus, I can pick up something for me too while I'm there! ha ha ha :twisted: :drool: She's a single mom so I think it might be nice to get something a little bit pampering for her. Thanks everybody! :hug:
Carmen, that's very bad! :teehee: They haven't been dating very long at all, only a couple of months, but things seem kind of serious. I just didn't want to get anything too major because I didn't want to assume that they were more involved than they really are, and then I'd either wind up embarrasing her or embarrasing myself by my assumptions.
