    :censored: jc43.... can you adopt me if you are giving gifts like that? :roof:

    Getting the girlfriend: nifty incense package, gold earrings, and diamond accented necklace with her birthstone (worth about $100 but got a good deal). Would have bought her more but we agreed on a $30 limit (which i DEFINETLY stepped over but can get away with this) and she'll be pissed if i buy her anything else or spend more money on her.... kindof have the reverse of what most guys have to deal with :woohoo:

    Lessee...
    -Made a new furnishing thing- it's a bathmat, but not the one that goes in the shower, but rather the one you step out onto. It's slatted and wooden. Kind of neat, very simple, and warmer/easier to clean than a towel or rug.
    -New dress boots
    And lots of small things:
    -Bottle of mineral water, bottle of fancy european lemonade
    -Couple of framed photos
    -Various sweets and treats
    -A Mancala set (our friends are the come-over-have-a-drink-or-two-and-play-a-board-game type)
    -Set of inexpensive earrings


    Good luck to everyone! :highfive:

    As a newlywed, I got my wife a TV and an antique diamond white gold pendant. The family seems to think I take good care of her. :p

    Things are tight with not much work around and consequently little money, plus I never know what to buy my wife, so I struck incredibly lucky when one of my clients asked me if I knew anyone who would like to buy a coat from her, she had bought it on a trip to Milan, Italy and never wore it. So I asked to have a look at it and ended up doing a deal of trading work for the coat.

    The coat is a heavy sort of silk on the out side and lined with Mink, it's calf length and has cost me 3 days work, which is a real steal, I have no idea what this thing would cost if I had to go and buy it , but I do know it would take a lot more than 3 days to work off the bill.
    My wife is Russian and nothing will make a Russian girl happy like real fur, so I win all round, make the client happy to get something for her coat, my wife's happy wrapped in mink and I'm happy, still got money in my pocket. ;)
