Christmas Presents for a quirky girl

What do I get a somewhat quircky girl for christmas? I got here a really nice digital camera for her birthday. I'm considering getting here an accsessory kit for it (3 lenses, 3 filters, tripod, etc), but that is just kinda boring. But other than that, I have no ideas. HELP!!!!!

If you can pull it off.....women like clothes. Take a GF of hers shopping if you need help.

Girls also like candles, smelly stuff, jewelry, books(not car mags :D)

Keep your ears open...I haven't met one yet that doesn't leave hints a mile wide in everyday conversations.

They usually don't like or appreciate stuff we want ie Ipods, computers, car parts, tools or even appliances.....so don't go there without a very big hint

Good luck...

She is on a diet and rapidly losing weight, so close are out of the question. Jewlery that I would buy her is too expensive right now. That leaves candles, smelly stuff, and books. I think I will pick option 2. Now, what good perfumes are out there? Ladies? Guys with ladies?

I am assuming this girl is a significant other or you want her to be. This might take a while but get her a memory card with filled with funny/cute poses of you. Top it off with a Fredrick's of hollywood gift card.

Give her a gift certificate to "Bed, Bath and Beyond." Wimmin' go bonkers over this store.

Personally, I find perfume very unimaginative. I'd much rather have a $50 gift certificate to my spa/salon.

Unfortunately she hates that store, hence "Quirky".

Did that for Valentines day (and it was $100).

There are lots of smelly stuff that is not perfume. Women tend to have very personal fragrances in perfume that they like. And some won't change...or don't like to try new ones.

You could try perfumed soaps, lotions, body washes, shower gel etc. I don't know if you have Body Shop stores where you are.....but they have packages of girly smelly stuff here.

You can also buy clothing accessories like scarves, mits, and hoodies, sweaters etc, that won't be a problem with size change for a while.

You could also buy her a SPA day package...women love that...massage, nails, facial etc.

If all else fails....listen and drop hints to find out what she likes

:D :D :D

The only hint that I have been given is that she wants a photo printer from her parents (kinda why I am thinking that the lense kit for the camera may be a good idea), and diamond earrings from her grandmother. So that leaves me out in the cold. I am usually a pretty perceptive guy, but she hasn't been giving me any hints lately.

Sorry to be so difficult, I do appreciate all of your input.

Hitachi Magic Wand massages MANY different places. She WILL thank you for it. And if you're good, she might let you watch or even participate.

I see your Hitachi Magic Wand and raise you one Hello Kitty Vibrator. (It actually exists, I can't link to it though since WebSense is lame.)

I liked the idea of giving her something that has to do with you. Women like sweet/well-thought-out gifts. Make a music CD with all your favorite songs on it as a couple. I had a roommate that once made his girlfriend a CD he titled "Goddess" in which all of the songs talked about her being a goddess. Very sweet.

You could also make it fun. Lots of little cheap gifts (gift card to somewhere, free 30 minute massage voucher from you, etc) with a scavenger hunt that leads to the best gift you could think of (if this is around your family, you might want to keep it "G" rated).

You could always get her some Semenex. :p I can't post a link to the site, but just add .com to the name. Definitely NOT safe for work. :D

i find a personal assortment of items serves as a good gift that is more meaningful, fill a shoebox with trinkets, photo albums, cds (mixed) and she'll love it.

Hmmmm..... no one mentioned Lingerie... :D, of course that wouldn't be very appropriate as we are going to be visiting my parents. Maybe I will give it to her before we go on the trip. :D

Get her a vacuum - chicks loooooove vacuums as presents. j/k

You could always get the Liberator. Look it up. Actually that would be for both of you.

Hmmmmmm...

Don't know how serious you two are, but an extended weekend in the mountains is a tried and true winner. Took my girl to the Poconos for her birthday. I guess that's also a present for both of you.

You can always get her a remote controlled car, that way if she doesn't like it, I can have it.

or, instead of a vacuum, you could get her a little feather duster and when she's like wtf?, tell her to bring it with her to the mountains (the requisite french maid outfit should be in your suitcase).

I actually thought about getting the Liberator Wedge for my wife and me, but decided I wasn't ready to spend $120+ on a foam triangle. :D
