    I need a few ideas for a silly little gift for my girlfriend when she comes back from her holiday.

    Needs to be cheap (>£20) and nothing too romantic and silly.

    I'm utterly stumped, so any ideas welcome.

    "A female" as if they're all the same. LOL. What does she like doing? Does she have any hobbies or interests? Maybe buying her a stereotypical "female" gift will not be a great idea.

    Nail polish.

    Seriously.

    Got my gf this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004ZT0CQO and she was absolutely ecstatic, there's a bunch of different colors too, I got her white, black, and turquoise.

    Otherwise most any other make-up product works, obviously keep to brands she likes and not a color she already has.

    One question, if I may ask: what's the purpose of the gift or the message you're trying to convey with it? since that might well be relevant

    She reads an awful lot, and is ridiculously into poetry... to the point where she quotes it at me all the time and she is very cosmopolitan.

    Im not trying to convay anything, its just a ritual we have of buying each other stupid things when one of us has been away.

    when my wife came back from the brownie pack holiday (she is a leader there)she was greated by me with a glass of wine and i led her upstairs and gave her sa massage, i got some soap type relaxant from a local shop , afterwards i ran her a bath with some of those rose petals and lit some tea lites and i left her to it after a back scrub, left her in there for about an hour and had tea ready for her when she came out.

    needless to say, she enjoyed it. and you will when she returns the favour:naughty:

    Wouldn't an overly romantic gift be silly?

    Something such as a super lovey dovey poem, like really go overboard, compare her eyes to the sky, ocean, etc, her skin to sandy beaches, etc, print it out with a super cursive font, on fancy paper, and wrap it up with chocolates, a couple of small bottles of her favorite alcohol, a couple of condoms, a cigar, and a couple of asprins.

    A complete welcome back package :thumb:

    KY and a pineapple. Extra points if you draw a smiley face on the pineapple with a sharpie.

    Go looking around in her browser history and see what shops for on amazon. Be a real creeper and ask her friends too. If your lucky while your looking for things in her history she might even have been logged in to something where you can access a wish list... Why haven't I thought of this before now.
    Get her one of these for each open usb plug she has on her laptop http://www.amazon.com/THUMBS-UP-USBHD-01-USB-HUMPING/dp/B000LA8ZBA

    Also look around on Think Geek they always have some interesting things

    If she's a girly girl, anything from M.A.C (provided you know what she uses) will free her inner girl and reduce her to babble-nonsense while she throws away her old bits and pieces, and dolls herself up for you.

    TSB


    EDIT: Seen budget; maybe less M.A.C, more McDonalds?
