    depends on the person but I usually try to either get something practical like tools, etc. or get something that they will think about me when using that item.

    If gunners were as violent as anti-gunners believe, logically there wouldn't be any anti-gunners left.

    Well, I don't know how much money you are willing to spend but, when my wife and I were going to college we were ramen noodle poor. Trying to pay rent every month was a massive challenge. I remember going to the grocery store and getting 50-100 dollars worth of food to last us the month and then holding our breath when we were trying to pay, not knowing if we would be getting the food or not. Sometimes the card went through, sometimes it got denied. I know it kind of sounds impersonal but when I was a broke college kid one of my biggest wishes was that I didn't have to worry about rent...just once. And what a better time then Christmas to have your rent payed off for the month of December or even January if they payed this months already.

    I think I'm gonna get him some jumper cables, tire chains and some tools, and her a huge block of top ramen, some cooking utensils and my wife always buys her plenty of jewelery and clothes.

    gift ideas

    Condoms, fucking huge box of condoms....my sister dropped out of college cause she got pregnant...
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    true, I had a long discussion with her mom about getting her on birth control since her mom got pregnant as a teen kinda felt she may become sexually active at a young age. wasnt trying to give her a free pass to start having sex but its life and mistakes happen. Was a tough sell especially since she isnt really my daughter. Worked out good tho she graduated high school early and was in college at age 17. Just got married still no kids

    I'm torn. I like this, but I also like getting something that they want, but would not spend the money on because it wasn't essential. Something like a car radio (assuming they had a stock unit), because they'd use it every day.

    To the OP:

    So thinking about it, whether the item is a essential or not, put some thought into getting a gift that they would use very frequently.

    If they have iPhones or Androids the solar window cling charger might be good. The scooter luggage could be trouble in an airport if scooters and skateboards are banned.

    I like the i tunes gift card idea, and gonna get them a good kitchen knife set, some tire chains, small gas can, road flares and a toolset. may seem lame but they've only been married 5 months and I think these are things you may need but never think about till after the fact.

    I always go towards items that they wouldn't normally buy for themselves. Something they really want more than need. If they need more than want, I get a visa gift card.

    Remember!! When Buying a woman a present for Christmas. Get her a Vibrator too, So if she doesn't like your present she can go fuck herself.

    Titanium Escape Ring - Own - Thrillist Nation

    Next


    While it may resemble a typical men's wedding band, this mirror-polished, titanium piece of finger bling conceals a thin, flexible saw/ shim along the inside edge that can be easily removed with bound hands to cut through zip ties, duct tape, and rope, or even pick a single-lock pair of cuffs, though good luck using it to break free of your marriage.
