    Need Ideas for a Gift...and Soon!!!

    Ok guys and galsÖ.I need some help. Iíve procrastinated and now Iím in a bind. I need to come up with an idea for a gift that if possible can be delivered. The catch is that it would have to be delivered tomorrow or Saturday. Without going into great detail, itís for a girl thatís not yet a girlfriend but that could be soon. So, that rules out flowers as that would be too much at this point.

    I need something unique or creative. Something that will be funny or bring a smile, etc. etc. It canít be ďtoo muchĒ right now.

    I believe it was Puffy who had the idea of the coupon for a free night of love-making. That was a tremendous gift idea.

    You would have to be careful with that one. She might try to redeem it with someone else.

    The coupon must be very specific, that's true.

    Just make sure "NON-TRANSFERABLE" is on there somewhere. It's legally binding then.

    WilyMoRocks' great gift idea is a 30 pack of Natural Light (he's an odd bird). It would be tough to have that delivered but I'm sure it's possible. Combine it with the coupon though and it would make for an interesting night.

    Further information on the recipient and her interests and whether the gift for a particular occacion would be helpful.

    When I got married I gave all my groomsmen a mug with just my smiling face on it. Pretty cool and got a lot of laughs.


    Or take her up to Caribbean Cove at the Holiday Inn near the Pyramids. They have a indoor water park thats way cool. If I recall alotta decent bars nearby to .

    It's hard to suggest a gift for someone you've never met. That's why I'll suggest the safe answer: give her a gift related to her interests. The creative and unique part is up to you.

    Having a gift delivered gives the impression that you're serious about a girl so just about anything you give might have the same impact as flowers. Just thinking out loud...
