Whats a good birthday gift for boyfriends elderly grandma??

We%26#039;re throwing a surprise party in her hometown this May Well boyfriends mom planned all this trying to bring her crazy sibilings together and family and friends its sweet though.

i believe she%26#039;ll be in mid-late 70%26#039;s she a wonderful lady and she loves when her grandson and me come see her she lost her husband last year whom she depended on the most the back bone to that family. They worry she may not be round for long and this is something special she deserves, i thought trying to show up although moneys tight for him and i to fly right now..would be a nice gift in itself but if we cant what can we do to tell her we wish we could be there and what kind of gift can we send? If we do make it and see her is bouquet of flowers lovely card maybe picture of us nice even 2 send?? My b/f mom thinks we can just up %26amp; leave but we told her bout our situation they%26#039;re flying ova there %26amp; husband told us dont worry bout tickets. Is it right to let him pay for us too if we cant? we dont want that

Whats a good birthday gift for boyfriends elderly grandma??
Maybe you can make her a beautiful gift basket, I%26#039;m not sure if she likes to get her nails or hair done, but a gift certificate to her favorite place, plus some nice lotions and body washes always seem to be appreciated.

If she likes jewelry, you can go to Macy%26#039;s and buy her a beautiful pin (costume jewelry, not expensive, but it looks nice)

You can also get her an extra cozy pair of pajamas and slippers

I think the idea of giving her a beautiful frame with the picture is a WONDERFUL idea. You can also send her a fruit basket, or they also sell baskets with fresh jams/jellies and english muffins... Look into GIFTS.COM, you can put in your price range and see if there%26#039;s anything in particular.
Reply:Yes, let his parents pay, if it is that important that you are there. Pick out a beautiful shawl, pashmina and a brooch or pin to go on it, try to be meaningful. This won%26#039;t be expensive or heavy to carry with you. Your energy and happiness are what she will cherish the most grandma is 85, I gave her a webtv, its easy to use, easy to see, and great when they have trouble hearing. I think it really helps with the loneliness too... my grandma loves hers!
Reply:Electric heater pad, $100 cash, new sweater or cardigan, gift cards to supplements, new bedsheet set, tonics, or just flowers if they are well off.
Reply:A bible (if religous) or a card. Do not spend a lot of money %26#039;cause they are old and either they got it and can%26#039;t use it, or never got it %26#039;cause they never wanted it.
Reply:If he thinks it is that important for you to go, then let him pay for you. And you should get her something that is very meaningful. You and your boyfriend should sit down together and discuss ideas of what to get her and things that she likes so that you can get even more ideas! Good luck!!
Reply:try some old movies instead - like movies by Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, Roscoe %26#039;Fatty%26#039; Arbuckle, Laurel %26amp; Hardy, Abbott %26amp; Costello - even silent film box sets like -

Reply:How about a scrap book, of the generation she has lived. I am sure she has seen her fair share, and raising children.

This is something that EVERYONE can help do. Nice paper, a book, hit the dollar store, and get some old magazines from resale shop, cut out pictures...use your imagination...and it will be a hit, guaranteed.

Reply:Boyfriend pays for the flight. You might pitch in here and there with the expenses. Yes, I see nothing wrong with flowers, card and a picture from ya%26#039;ll. Gr%26#039;ma%26#039;s loves stuff like that. If you attend: shawl, brooch. Gr%26#039;ma%26#039;s loves stuff to keep them warm. Footie-socks; Lap throw; Warm lounging pj%26#039;s; Body powder. I know Red Door body powder is expensive, but I once took care of an elderly bedfast lady who had to have her Red Door body powder applied everyday after bathing. She always smelled so nice. Photo Album with some pictures of ya%26#039;ll for starters in it. Some grannies likes pretty aprons; some more active grannies likes the wind-suits, pants and jacket to match. A nice Bible in large print...even nicer to have her name put on it. Grannies aren%26#039;t hard to buy for. The most are very appreciative. Good Luck!

Hey there,

When you look at pictures for years to come, most of them are going to be in cute little dresses, right?

So why not try something that you would look at the picture and say, %26quot;Awww....she looks SO adorable in that lil%26#039; Pooh outfit!%26quot;

I%26#039;d go with the Whinnie the Pooh outfit!!!!!! It will be so innocent and darling!

Good Luck!

Whats the best birthday present to buy your girlfriend when you've been together for more than a year?

weve been together for 19 months i have given her everything (chocolates, jewelry, teddies, flowers, cards) i%26#039;m stumped for ideas. I%26#039;ve got 16 days to find a present HELP HELP HELP!!!!

An engagement ring!!!!
Reply:how bout booking yourselves into a health spa (kinda thing for the day). give yourselves a pamper....thats always nice. u have to go to tho really to make it special for her.
Reply:Does she like Pink - as in the female singer......if she does - buy tickets to go see her. I went a week ago and am still on a high and came back and booked more tickets for wembley on 4th dec.

concert tickets, theatre tickets (musicals are always good) we will rock you was fab.

get something that envolves you getting it organised - all she has to do is be ready on time.

Maybe, dinner, shopping to buy her a nice bit of jewelery and a show - then its day all for her. And if you wanna really splash out - hotel it up too. he he.
Reply:Here%26#039;s one, but it%26#039;s gonna cost you.

Tell her that you have a dinner with your co-workers on her birthday and that she must go along with you. This meeting is very important to you because you want to make an impression on the big boss. Tell her that the dress-code is formal. Hire two waitresses for the night. Drive around for a couple of minutes, say about for half an hour. Then pull over and look her in the eye and tell that you forgot where the place is and that you should leave everything. She will be mad at you for being the typical guy. Don%26#039;t worry, she will not hold it against you. Drive back home and let her walk in through the door first. The candles should be lit around the room, the music playing softly in the background, with the two waiters standing at the door with the champaign. At this time she will ask you what is going on, look a bit nervous and tell her that you got something to tell her. Turn around and give her the present and say Happy Birthday Babe. And you can let your imagination help you out for the rest of the story. Best of luck amgio.

My girlfriend's birthday is this Thursday. What should I get her for a present?

We%26#039;ve been dating for a few months. We%26#039;ve known each other for many years though. She%26#039;s turning 26. What should I get her? I%26#039;m already going to get her flowers and a nice card. Still looking for that something special though. Help!

My girlfriend%26#039;s birthday is this Thursday. What should I get her for a present?
It depends a lot on what your budget is.

Of course a very nice dinner out at her old favorite or new favorite restaurant is part of the mix, and a night of dancing.

It should always be something that she thinks is very luxurious, that she would never buy for herself. Very beautiful jewelery, a luxurious and fine quality robe, on the glamourous side (depends on her personal style), a spa day with all the trimmings( to prepare for your dinner and evening out?,( bonus perks for you too!)

Always if you buy clothing for her, if you do not know the EXACT size, err on the side of too small, NEVER NEVER too large.

A trip, a cruise, an overnight or a weekend at a beautiful bed and breakfast inn where you will both be pampered and the surroundings are exquisite.

I always recommend memorable experiences over material goods, unless there is serious jewelery involved, and that depends on her preference.
Reply:A picture of the 2 of u together in a heart shaped frame. If you don%26#039;t have any treat her to a photo shoot at the photographers and dress up smart!Flowers of course too.

Reply:How long have you known about her birthday??? Furthermore if you have known her for many years then you should know her well enough to know what she wants, needs, and likes. Perhaps you should get her someone who will learn her likes and wants and not wait till the last minute to ask a bunch of complete strangers what to get her... What ever you do...Good Luck Bro...
Reply:Well something that may look expensive but not give her a bunch of balloons her favorite colors but as long as they have some white and red in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its my girlfriends birthday today and Im broke?

I have no idea what to do, she knows Iv no money so do you think she would be happy with a nice bunch of flowers with a hidden love note inside? and a card of course, then I was thinking that night I could make her a romantic meal with the candles and put her favourite album on..then of course finish the night? I dont know what to do.

Any help? thanks guys

Its my girlfriends birthday today and Im broke?
something nice you can do is write a coule of small notes and letters and hide it in her room so that everywhere she looks for something like jewelry or a pen or in her handbag she will find it, its also nice to hide it so that she cant get it and then tell her after a while where she should look, but then you should of course not be there when you tell her, you have to like sms her and tell her go to this and this place and look there etc...another nice thing if you can order a pizza, you can lift up the pizza and write a note underneath it so that each time you and she takes a piece, you see a piece of the letter, make sure the pen or marker dont come of on to the pizza. a nother gift that is really not that expensive and is a nice gift is, if she likes coffee buy her a coffee mug, I know it might sound stupid but you actully use the thing alot. I got one and It%26#039;s a nice gift. To give her a massage may be nice... Good luck, hope i helped a bit...
Reply:I was in your boat this time last year but not worry remember if she really care she isnt with you for your money put as much thought as possible. So meal idea is good make sure everything is just how she likes it and make sure she doesnt have to do anything.

I wouldnt advise a film as this restricts conversaation but ask about her day. Maybe even make her a card if you glue glitter eect.

Do you play an instrument? play a song for her?

I really hope you both have a lovley evening.

Peace Chris.
Reply:give her a card %26amp; some flowers. in the card write some really nice things about her and how much she means to you %26amp; end it by saying your going to get her a nicer gift when you save up the money to get her something she deserves for her birthday, she should understand %26amp; later have her pick out a gift when you have the money =)

go ahead %26amp; do the romantic meal also, you want to make your lady feel adored on her day
Reply:Hide little Nice love notes everywhere for her to come across for example in her underwear drawer, then on the milk for when she makes a brew, in the bathroom put them everywhere you can think of then cook her her favorite meal maybe watch a movie of her choice then you could finish the night off.Then you could treat her with a belated gift when you have some money if you wanted too
Reply:It is supposed to be the %26quot;thought%26quot; that counts, so if that is true, your evening sounds appropriate to me. If she is the kind that expects you to spend money on her to show you care, it will be a big job to keep her happy. Is that where you want to be ?? I would hope and think your evening would be acceptable for her. Good luck.
Reply:Yes, all of the above and maybe a nice bubble bath with candles she could enjoy when you are preparing dinner or enjoy it together for dessert. Just make her feel loved and special. (Start saving up for next year, you may not get away with the same.) Anyway for this day you are spot on!
Reply:yes if that was me i would rather have that, but obviously you better make a real effort smarten yourself up, set the mood and pamper her because you must of known when her birthday was you should of saved money for it , do a three course she will love it im sure
Reply:I like what my friend Natalie said ( N)
Reply:you are so creative! well, i think it will be enough. its the thought that counts and the effort as well. but if you really want to give her a marvelous treat (something more that she deserves), then tell her that you will do better as soon as you get your money. :D
Reply:Sounds good to me. Just one point though, as soon as you get some cash, lavish it on her and never forget to save up for their birthdays, Christmas, anniversary or valentines mate. Women find it unforgivable if it is a habit.
Reply:Hey, that sure sounds like a winner to me. Flowers, a card. candlelight dinner, and! That would make any woman happy--have a nice time, and good luck. Remember...there are some things money can%26#039;t buy and this is one of them.
Reply:Yes I think that is a good plan and she would be happy. It%26#039;s the thought that counts. As long as you showed her that you remembered her birthday and that you are thankful for having her as your girlfriend.
Reply:I think she would love it, even write her a poem that comes from you, or a letter saying all the things u like about her, etc etc.. The meal and music would be beautiful, she will love it..
Reply:Flowers are the best language to talk to women, remember that. Your program is perfect, just go ahead and keep some self confidence, she%26#039;ll be amazed.

Good luck.
Reply:Make an I.O.U. booklet of coupons, with things like %26quot;I%26#039;ll give you a massage,%26quot; %26quot;I%26#039;ll take you to the movies,%26quot; %26quot;I%26#039;ll make you dinner,%26quot; etc.
Reply:Write a lovepoem, there´s no better gift! It shows her you´ve made an effort and really cares. It´s not hard.

Linking to a site to get you some tips.
Reply:I think you would get to know is she really love you or not....go to her with empty hands and wish her..

let see what happens...a precious to know about your love...
Reply:You knew it was comming so you should of had something long ago. I am sure she will find a way to get you sometings. Ask your parents for a small loan.
Reply:Make up a card by yourself. A personal expression of love will always beat out flowers or candy.
Reply:Its all about the thought with girls. I would love my boyfriend to be romantic the little things that don%26#039;t cost money!! A card with a nice message..... Make a cake for her... Cook something
Reply:your idea sounds good

bake her something, too. :) preferably chocolate.
Reply:why didnt you save up some money before you were broke, as you know your gf%26#039;s birthday all along. men.... just another excuse.
Reply:You could do a lot of things like try to give her a bunch of flowers like you said
Reply:Make her a nice dinner and let her know that you wanted to make her day special.
Reply:The dinner thing was the part I liked most...
Reply:do as you sed, you should know her the best, just do it

ok, here%26#039;s the issue. my mom will be 42 tomorrow and i dont know what to get her. she doesnt like jewlry and she doesnt want clothes. i bought her a cell phone for mothers day and i dont want to give her a gift card. my sister always gives her flowers and i she doesnt like sweets. shes very complicated and theres not much she likes. someone please help me. money is not and issue, oh and she doesnt do spa%26#039;s or pampering stuff like that.

Mom%26#039;s birthday tomorrow and i dont know what to get her.?
I know you said no gift cards, but from the looks of it you don%26#039;t have much of a choice. I would suggest getting her tickets to a movie theater for you and her and write in a card that you want to have a mother daughter day{ your treat to a movie and dinner} I %26#039;m a mom and this would make my day if my daughter did that for me.
Reply:Does she like candles? How about a book? A photo album or picture frame if she likes to take pictures? (Yes, I know in this computer age most people have them on CD, but I still use my regular film camera when I want the best pictures, so I would love a photo album or picture frame.)

Does she have any hobbies???

she is going to be 44 and is not old fashioned at all so she isnt into cheesy stuff or ornaments...

Sorry its long but really stuckk..

Good news is i got her the cutest card ever off of moonpig with a picture of the two of us on the front and its a me to you bear card..i love it =]

My sisters birthday is in two weeks ... I'm trying to think of something unique to sent to her work ...?

My sister is turning 25 ... i want to have something special and unique sent to her work ... i dont want to just sent flowers .... i have heard of companies who do different things ... like send designed cookies / or cupcakes ... i am unable to find the phone numbers/websites to these companies ...

So if possible with ideas ... provide phone numbers/website addresses.

FYI - i live in Michigan ... so it would have to be a company that delivers to Michigan.

Thank so much in advance.

My sisters birthday is in two weeks ... I%26#039;m trying to think of something unique to sent to her work ...?
A good place to start may be They have a lot of other things that can be sent other than flowers. I am not sure if %26quot;incredible edibles%26quot; is in your area but I bet there is a similar company. They delivery food (veggies or fruit) bouquets...really neat stuff. They are made to look like floral bouquets but they are edible. And something I did for my sister-in-laws 30th birthday was hire a funny stripper. I chose a Larry the Cable Guy type to come sing and %26quot;sort-of%26quot; strip for her. He wore boxers and was tubby and it was a hoot. I hope this helps.
Reply:Not sure if they have it where you live but a great gift is chocolate from Edibable Arrangements. Looks like real roses and the chocolate is great. Very unusual and beautiful gift. Report It

New supervisor invited me to his 40th birthday party...?

what do I bring as a gift? I was going to bring a small card and some flowers. He invited one other person from the office but she couldn%26#039;t make it. There will be a lot of other people there, there is nothing romantic as he already has a partner. Flowers are classy right? He said that it is super casual

New supervisor invited me to his 40th birthday party...?
wine perhaps?
Reply:For a man maybe a potted plant would be better... Or does he have a favorite wine that you know of? Favorite restaurant?

Good luck and have fun!
Reply:I would say, ...a nice bottle of wine...or they have those gift sets with the pretty glassware and the wine , or gift cards for maybe a favorite coffee place, a car wash, a restaurant that he likes, or maybe a bookstore if he%26#039;s into reading. Me personally, I wouldn%26#039;t get flowers.
Reply:I think if he said it was super casual you could just bring a card. I don%26#039;t know enough about wine to suggest a particular brand however if you went to the liquor store they have people that could direct you to the right bottle in the right price range. I think some of the ones from the Okanagan have good reviews and they are about the right price. I personally like the flowers idea because you would pay the same for a good flower arrangement as a bottle of wine.

Have fun at the party!
Reply:whatever you do don%26#039;t drink too much you want keep the job.

it might be better if you don%26#039;t go.
Reply:I wouldn%26#039;t do flowers, because his partner might read it wrong. If you don%26#039;t want to bring a bottle of wine, or don%26#039;t want to carry anything with you, you could call ahead and have one of these delivered (click the link below); I use this service constantly and have never been disappointed. It%26#039;s a great alternative to flowers and makes a nice presentation.

I was thinking maybe 14 kisses.. Or a teddy bear holding 14 flowers.. I dont know where a flower shop is though. Could anyone give me some suggestions on what to get her? Or where I could get some flowers for not too much (I dont really have too much money) Thanks.

URGENT!! What should I get my girlfriend for her 14th birthday?? URGENT!!?
aw. i wish i was dating someone as nice as you lol. i%26#039;m turning 14 in april so i should be a good source. and i think you should give her those 14 kisses and then a really good last kiss for good luck %26lt;3 and get her a picture frame and put a picture in it of you two (it doesn%26#039;t have to be big. just a small one) and maybe a little poem?

she%26#039;ll be amazed and i%26#039;m sure she%26#039;s gunna want 14 more kisses after. hehe ;)
Reply:Well it all depends what type of girl she is, if she simple then yes go with the bear and flower. If she expensive give her a ring(there are some places you can get them cheap, but not to cheap).
Reply:14? Her childhood back.
Reply:Maybe a tee shirt with a cute (but not explicit or x-rated) saying on it. You can get some really cute little stuffed animals for reasonable prices at some of the grocery or drug stores now. Pick out a cute one, have it hold a little pack of those candy-covered mini-kisses and maybe a single flower.

Or you could go to a crafts or party store, get a shiny little heart and key set, tie a ribbon though the key, tie it around the neck of the bear (or whatever animal you pick), tie another ribbon through the heart and slip it over your head,

then present her with the bear and %26quot;the key to your heart%26quot;

Good luck. Just remember that she%26#039;s only fourteen.
Reply:Go and get her a neckalace or candies that is what i would like or rent some movies and sit and watch them together that she would love just for you being with her on her 14th birthday.
Reply:like earlings or a shirt or something l;ike that
Reply:When I was 14 girls liked getting balloons and teddy bears. How about the 14 kisses plus a card, some balloons (mylar) the ones with the designs and a buy her lunch.
Reply:Make her a c.d. with songs she likes. Get her a helium balloon. Just as long as you acknowledge her, she%26#039;ll be happy, you dont have to spend a lot of money.
Reply:Here%26#039;s something creative that will be appreciated and you will have fun doing:

Make up a crossword puzzle and have all the hints be personal inside moments and jokes that only you two would know about. Put it on a poster board and add some clipart and some pictures to it!

The crossword puzzle could be time consuming and a bit frustrating ... you could do the same idea with a WORDSEARCH or WORDFIND puzzle.

Put your computer skills to work! Use Excel, get clipart from Yahoo Images Search, copy them, and reformat them, use a gluestick to put on posterboard.

Use graph paper, and pictures from magazines if you are not as good on the computer, and it will give it more of a homemade feeling.
Reply:go with a pearl necklace!
Reply:aww that%26#039;s sweet of you!

Any store such as safe way has flowers that can be pretty but rather cheap. just think of something sweet that would mean a lot to her. you can bake her 14 heart cookies and decorate them with icing. Good luck!
Reply:Get her a heart necklace %26amp; a kiss =)

Gf birthday present? :(?

my gf%26#039;s friend who is a guy got her a %26#039;white gold%26#039; bracelet or whatever, I got her a card, and i drew her a picture and bought her a cd and some flowers, I am starting to get worried because I think the bracelet might be expensive and my presents are rubbish, im not rich so i couldnt get her anything good, I dont know if she angry about my crappy presents but i am worried that he might have given her something worth a lot more to her, what do I do?

i am also wondering how much a white gold bracelet is worth or whatever :%26#039;(

Gf birthday present? :(?
If your girlfriend just judges a gift by how costly it is then it is not worth it.
Reply:you know, friend, if your gf really loves you, you need not be worried too much. a bracelet may bring some sparkle but your gift would tickle her heart. that%26#039;s for sure!
Reply:ok, you don%26#039;t have to be rich to give somebody something they love. It doesn%26#039;t have to be something big. I appreciate even the little things. Your present it just fine. I don%26#039;t think she is mad at you. If she is for some reason she is a. Ok nevermind. I%26#039;m not sure what a white gold braclet costs though. But hey if you gave the present you gave her to me I%26#039;d like it.
Reply:A white gold bracelet is worth nothing if it is given by someone you don%26#039;t love truly. I think it is very sweet that you hand made a present by yourself. And please, you present is not rubbish as compared to his. Your present required effort (drawing her a picture) while he took the easy way out of forking out his cash.

If she truly loves you, she would totally love anything you give her (as long as you remembered her birthday).

And if she truly loves you, she wouldn%26#039;t even be caught wearing that bracelet especially since she knows it might make you jealous.

Lastly, don%26#039;t worry about the value of the presents that you have given her. If anything, she would treasure anything given by you.
Reply:awww !! that%26#039;s so sweet of you!

girls cherish that kind of stuff! %26amp; its never rubbish ... i know you%26#039;ve probably heard this so many times before but its the thought that counts! i%26#039;m sure she isnt angry and i%26#039;m POSITIVE she loved what u did. money comes and goes, but love never dies.. and you put alot of love and effort into what you gave her ... she can get a white bracelet from anyone, anywhere anytime.. but something as special as a card and flowers from YOU, showing how much you love her is something she can%26#039;t just go out and get.. its very special and you%26#039;re a sweet guy =)

you think not to spoil her with material but with your love and i%26#039;m very very sure she would appreciate that.. i would! and honestly, your present is worth a whole lot more than a bracelet!!!

good on ya!!! xx

p.s. dont get into a fight with him.. your girlfriend will surely be mad at u for that. remember this: you%26#039;re the one who has her right now and you%26#039;re the one with the chance to give her love so dont lose that chance.. if he%26#039;s her friend.. let it be, you%26#039;re her girlfriend and you%26#039;re the one who should be looking out for her.. so dont get into any trouble with this guy.. your gf knows u love her alot and sounds as if she doesnt want to get involved with the guy anymore than she already is so dont worry =)
Reply:If your g.f is a materialistic person then she%26#039;s not for you. She should love anything you get her. A white gold braclet is about $60-$80

If she dumps you for him then you know she%26#039;s not for you
Reply:Yes the the bracelet is nice but she knows the sitution you are in.

IF she loves you she will love anything you give her.

Why would this person being buying something like this for your girlfriend?

chocolates last longer than flowers, taste better, smell better, and satisfy appetites.

Inexpensive birthday present for my girlfriend?

she likes sunflowers and the beach. we live nowhere near a beach, so i was thinking of bringing a beach to her. any ideas? i also want to get her one single sunflower, but everywhere i look sells them in bouquets for lots of money (which i don%26#039;t have). any suggestions where to find cheap flowers?

Inexpensive birthday present for my girlfriend?
*Get a bunch on balloons and blow them up. Then put little bitty notes inside each of them that say ... I love you because, or you are special to me because (just make it unique) Then make her pop all the balloons and read the notes out loud!

*Make a scavanger hunt. Put notes on things that have clues to the next place. Like I put %26quot;I am always sitting here when we watch moves%26quot; so he knew to go to the couch. Then the next clue would be on the couch. and so on and so on.

*You could also get a picture of the both of you, put it in a frame and decorate the frame your self.

*Get a jar and fill it up with little pieces of paper that have a memory on them. Like one of them could be %26quot;the time we went bike riding, and I fell off and scaped my knee%26quot; (something like that).

*Buy some window chalk and write on her car windows HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Any creative ideas for me to make her something??

Ok, Birthday questions?

Its her sweet sixteen and we have been going out for about 5 months i know i%26#039;m sending flowers to her place but im not sure on the actual gift that im going to give her. We were talking about perfume and she said she liked the Versace but i am completely in love with the Juicy Couture. She seemed to like it but she knows its more expensive, so i think thats why she told me she like versace best, o well the question is, Should i give her the one i like or the one she says she likes?

Ok, Birthday questions?
If you can afford it, the Juicy Couture.


30th Birthday cake ideas?

Looking for ideas as to what to put on a cake (sheet) for my sister who will be 30. She does not like flowers and frilly stuff. This will not be a dirty cake. She will be surprised. Do not want black icing. Will have the words on there as far who it is for and from. What other simple designs and colors would look great?

30th Birthday cake ideas?
How about having crushed graham crackers and oreos mixed spread around the edges and a little tossed in the middle with the words %26quot;Older than Dirt%26quot;?

Or how about the words %26quot;It%26#039;s all fun and games until it happens to you%26quot;?

I don%26#039;t know if I%26#039;d put %26quot;Happy 30th Mary from your friends%26quot; (this is just an example: don%26#039;t know what sis%26#039; name is) on it without adding a bit of pokey humor. Everyone knows that turning 30 is a huge milestone and it%26#039;s fun to make fun.

Any color would be cool - pick her 2 favorite colors and have them just do balloons in those colors in each corner of the cake.

Happy birthday to your sis!
Reply:If you can locate a really cute photo of her from when she was little, you could have Albertsons (or whoever) put the image on the cake and something like look how you%26#039;ve grown or something about how she still looks so young. They can do up to 8 1/2%26quot; x 11%26quot; per photo. I have even combined several to make a collage.

I found a photo of my best friends party when she was about 4 and they had a cake shaped like a frog (green and everything). We had the bakery recreate the same cake and used the photo for the invitations. That was a big hit.

Good luck!
Reply:How about you take a phtot of her(if you have one) and have them put it on the cake.It%26#039;ll look nice.
Reply:Incorporate one of her hobbies. Does she like the tropics? Make a beach using graham cracker crumbs and blue icing for waves. Shopping? Use icing to make it look like a shoebox with a particular brand logo, like Manolo Blahnik which you can find on the internet.

The possibilities are endless. You can use candies for embellishment if you aren%26#039;t much for fancy frosting work.
Reply:Get a Mad Hatter Cake Instead! They are unique looking cakes and not to girly.
Reply:STARZZ!!! if shes not too girly, or too sporty, she%26#039;ll like starzz.


80th birthday present for Grandma?

Well, my Grannie is turning 80 soon and i want to give her something different, and special, not just flowers/chocolates/jewellery etc, but something that is really meaningful to the 80 years of her life. I really love her so much, and i want to get her something so so special. Maybe including a photo or something, something that she can treasure and remind her of her beautiful self and all her life.

Do you guys have any ideas?

BTW, im only 14, and so i dont have much money. But i want it to be more from the heart rather than purse...=]

80th birthday present for Grandma?
I think if your grandmother is sentimental and you don%26#039;t have much money, you could always create a scrap book/photo album with photos of all her children and grandchildren. That%26#039;s something that she will treasure. Otherwise, if you have enough material, you could collect photos of her when she was young and create an album of her life. Or you could get a photo blown up (you could even do this at home) of her children/grandchildren or of herself when she was younger and frame it. Hope that helps!
Reply:Well sally a few years ago we wanted to make something really special for my gran 4 her b day so we got a 3 foot cheap frame and cut up loads of old and new photos of her, our family and her friends and made a collage with them. My gran cried when we handed to her and she still talks about it to this day (5years). it was was very cheap to make but it was the thougt of it tat made it soooo special to her.

Good luck with your present hunting xx
Reply:If you have access to a computer and a program called windows movie maker, scan old photos of her as a child, teen, young woman, wedding, with children and then her grandchildren. You can add music and words. I did one for my parents 50th wedding anniversary and it went for about 10 minutes. It was a story of their life, how they met and then us cildren and family and friends, it was fantastic. i downloaded some songs, really meaningful, slow songs and special ones that they liked and would remind them of their past. There wasnt a dry eye in the place all 50 guests were really touched, my mum and dad loved it. If you have got time its a great gift.
Reply:try making a home made picture frame with your whole family%26#039;s picture in it.
Reply:make her a letter writing box

or a teddy bear

or a scarfe
Reply:Your grandmother doesn%26#039;t need more stuff and what she would really appreciate is something from your heart. Find a picture of you and her, maybe when you were a baby and write a poem or letter to her telling her what she means to you and how much you love her. That is something that will touch her heart every day.
Reply:A personalised mug, teapot or plate is very inexpensive yet very personal. I get mine from tilestodifor. Each piece is an individual piece of art, and the artist can paint from emailed photographs. I got my mother a teapot with her cat painted on it. Very realistic.
Reply:How about sending a sheet of writing paper to everyone in the family, asking them to write down memories of Granny. When they send it back to you, put them all in an album. Include pictures if you can, of Granny and everyone else. Try to include a pic of Granny%26#039;s house too :) Hope this helps!!

Her Birthday is coming up in a few months... Should I send her something to her job ? I really miss her?

I have not spoken to my ex-girlfriend for almost 2 months now but I still think of her. She broke off with me suddenly and I am still shocked on what happen. Per her request I stop texting calling her and for a period I have been sending her emails, which I shouldn%26#039;t of done. The last email I sent her almost a month ago was asking her nicely to restart our friendship. Her response to that email pretty much stated it may not be over; however she would respond to me in her own time in her own way, and to learn to love the rebel in her. Like an idiot I responded to her email asking how her week was going completely overlooking her wishes of not communicating with her and she responded with saying that she no longer is impressed with me and no longer cares what my friends think. She pulled all 4 of my previous emails which were somewhat lengthy and stated that I used my friends to make her seem beneath me. She stated that they were full of passive aggressiveness and she wouldn%26#039;t tolerate it. She also stated that she feels that I placed a lot of pressure on her without looking at my own introspection It was NEVER my attention to come across that way I just missed her so much. She later stated that if in the event I were to respond she would send all of my emails to the authorities to get a restraining order because she greatly fears for her safety. I%26#039;m so hurt... I had nothing but good intentions for her. Besides the once a week emails I haven%26#039;t stalked her. She is 21 year old college student and I%26#039;m 26 working professional. I honestly love her and want to make things right even if not for relationship reasons. Her B-day is coming up in June and I want to send her flowers, or perhaps do something before than. We broke up in February and I have dated since than but I still miss her so much. It hurts even more when a mutual friend of hers told me she is single. Honestly I feel that if she knew how I felt she wouldn%26#039;t act this way, or maybe not.

Her Birthday is coming up in a few months... Should I send her something to her job ? I really miss her?
There are only three words for you, Let it go, or maybe two will do, MOVE ON. When we lose someone we care about, and don%26#039;t really understand why, it hurts and we want to get it back to the way it used to be. But pressuring her and harrassing her, even in a nice way, is not the thing to do, it will lead to resentment on her part and she will only push you away further. Do as she asks, stop all calls, e-mails, texts, letters and flowers...give her a chance to miss you and rethink her decision to leave. You know the saying..%26quot;.If you love someone let them go, if they come back you know it was meant to be%26quot;. I%26#039;m sorry about your pain, but Let her go, and Move on.
Reply:well, i read a book on restraining orders and how to deal if the person you love don%26#039;t love you back. the answer, in my opinion to your question is no, don%26#039;t send her anything. she%26#039;ll only start to hate you. to love someone, is to want them to be happy no matter what, and it seems to be that you don%26#039;t make her happy anymore. i%26#039;m sorry, i bet it hurts.


Sending her 500$ flowers and im not her b/f?

we%26#039;re both 19, and this girl liked me before and i rejected her (even though she%26#039;s hot) and then i never saw her again... a year later out of nowhere i just started to like her but we%26#039;re living in different cities... I told her on MSN that i really like her but she didnt believe me... but after i kept telling her i think she does now. Her birthday is coming up and i wanna spend 500$-700$ on roses delivered to her. I%26#039;m rich so money doesnt matter and i dont care if u dont belive me because i am willing to spend that kinda money). But would it be major BAD because im not her boyfriend? Also i want to make all the girls @ her school jealous because a few of her friends have really big mouths and i wanna shut them up.

Sending her 500$ flowers and im not her b/f?
I think you should send her the flowers. You like her and she likes you, so hopefully those flowers will say that for you and you two will become boyfriend and girlfriend. If not, then she%26#039;s still your friend and I%26#039;m sure she would appreciate the gesture. Best to be open than keep your feelings bottled up inside! Good luck with your girl! :)
Reply:Please don%26#039;t send flowers, thats a major mistake. If you want her to think that you are a wuss trying to buy her affection then go ahead. Rather, spend your money on a night out. Forget about shutting up her school friends, what are you a show pony, what you and her do is your own business. Living in different cities doesn%26#039;t matter, provided it%26#039;s not on the otherside of the country. And if you like my answer, send me some money, I need it really bad. And remember, never ever ever ever ever etc. send a girl flowers until she deserves them, and a birthday doesn%26#039;t warrant such an occassion unless she is your wife.

What a loser.

Who would spend 500 dollars on flowers???

And yeah dont do it, you are gonna look way to desperate!!

Enough said.
Reply:HAHA! Where have you been all my life? kidding.. Anyway, I say go for it. Show her you care and make those girls jealous.
Reply:You%26#039;re a loser. No amount of money on flowers is going to change that.
Reply:It depends on the girl. It sounds nice...But do you want her to think you%26#039;re trying to buy her affection. It also sounds like your coming on to strong. Do you really want some who%26#039;s affection you can buy, if she%26#039;s not one of those girls sorry. It%26#039;s just nicer to do something sweet. If you still want to send the flowers go ahead, but try to do something sweet to so she knows your not trying to buy her.
Reply:go for it.....its a mixed decision.....alot of girls love that stuff especially if you don%26#039;t tell her till her bday....and def don%26#039;t mention how much they were........if she asks.....juss say %26quot;alot%26quot; or %26quot;there isn%26#039;t a price to see you smile%26quot; she%26#039;d luv;ll def make her friends jealous.....but don%26#039;t boast saying i spent $500-$700....its quite a turn-off...other than that ur golden
Reply:Sounds like you have it bad! Well if you thinks she will like it go for it. If money is not a issue then spend it and see what the out come is going to be. You know little things are always bigger to a women? Good luck.
Reply:If you%26#039;re gonna send her that $500-$700, it%26#039;s really a strong statement. You really like her that much but don%26#039;t overspend something that you can%26#039;t guarantee the result. Still, you never know what she%26#039;s thinking.
Reply:Go for it my lover boy.

Make that splash and create the talk while you %26quot;walk the walk!!!%26quot;

I sure wish you well.
Reply:She will just think you are obsessed and her boyfriend could get mad at you for trying to steal her. I say forget about her, find another woman and move on. If you refuse to listen, only trouble can come.
Reply:Why the hell did you reject a HOT girl?

Yea well some guy did that for me before, It was cool but he went all out. I dont know if it was cause he was desperate to impress me or what. He sent like 3 dozen roses and got lobsters and gifts and all kinds of stuff. It still didnt work out in the end.

Heres what I think... Send the roses , do it all... she will be Impressed and maybe forgive you for last year. Who cares if youre not her boyfriend? If you do this you just might be soon.

If you send her 500 dollars worth of flowers, trust me, she will remember it or at least it will make an impression of some sort and she will most likely tell you thanks or think about you as a boyfriend... If she still likes you.
Reply:Wow.....dude stop the madness,personally I would be turned off if you went that overboard on me,you do not need to spend that much,sure send her a dozen nice beautiful long stem roses from the best florist around,but that%26#039;s it any more and its overkill.Trust me on this one.
Reply:It doesn%26#039;t matter if you are rich. Spending $500-700 on roses is ridiculous. Why don%26#039;t you just send her a regular bouquet of flowers (maybe $100 range so you can guarantee they look beautiful).

Anyways, if you want to show her you like her, then pay attention to her. For example, call her... take her out... give her special treatment. Also, learn how to spell and punctuate, etc.
Reply:i%26#039;d love it, dont see why she wouldnt! but you dont want her to freak out though and think your obsessive.... maybe halve the amount!

Birthday idea for a girl i like she's 20 years old?

I like this girl...and her bday is coming up and I really need ideas

I found out she likes me too but I want to rush everything

anyway...her bday is coming up and I%26#039;m trying to get her something special

so here%26#039;s what I came up with so far:

1) either I surprise her at 12am OR pretend I don%26#039;t know her bday and surprise her at like 10pm on her bday

2) get her a necklace, make her meet met at like a park and tell her to close her eyes..then put on the necklace on her neck

OR buy roses and her fav flowers with a picture frame and in the picture frame, I%26#039;ll draw a pic of me and her or something

then hide all that behind my back and ask her to hug me to find out

sorry if it%26#039;s extmreely cheesy/corny but yeah

HELP!!! haha

Birthday idea for a girl i like she%26#039;s 20 years old?
okay, yea, if you aren%26#039;t going out with her or her good friend, you really shouldn%26#039;t give her anything like a necklace. if you are, yes, sure go ahead.

but if you aren%26#039;t, don%26#039;t get her anything more than like a card or a chocolate bar. she%26#039;ll then realize that u have feelings for her, and that you%26#039;re sweet and thoughtful for remembering.
Reply:Don%26#039;t you watch TV???!!! Every kiss begins with KAY!!
Reply:You can take her out for dinner and then present her with a nice picture frame. you can also take her to a spa women love that. I also recommend buying a frame from bc they look very expensive and impresive but are cheap.

Hope this helped!

Birthday gift ideas for MUM please?

My mum%26#039;s gonna be 33 in May and I have no idea what to get her. She wrote out a list but it only says flowers, chocolates and nail varnish! i really wanna get her something special. I just don%26#039;t know what! oh and i%26#039;m not exactly rich (pretty much the opposite) so if it could not cost much. So something sweet and cheap. Around a tenner (10 euro) would do. Thanks!

Birthday gift ideas for MUM please?
What about a gift voucher for a place where she shops? Try Next or New Look. I%26#039;m 30 with 2 kids and personally Id rather have a lovely card with a lot of time gone into choosing it than a gift. Make sure its got an extremely long verse in it. Do you have a card factory shop in your local high street? If yes and you haven%26#039;t bought your mum a card then get her a card from there. They also do little gift bags and key-rings in there that are cheap you could get your mum a gift bag, card, a purse size wallet card. (ask the assistant to show you where they are, they usually on a swivel stand. Get one with Mum on or her name or birth flower.) Go to your local £1 shop or Home bargains if you have one and get her some chocolates from there. Don%26#039;t spend more than £2 on choccies. You should try and spend less than £6 in a card shop and manage to get her a card, bag and wallet card. Pop to Asda or Tesco and get some flowers for £1.98. Also make her breakfast in bed. She will love it.
Reply:When one writes a list, then it pretty much tells you what they%26#039;d like. If she loves nail varnish, then that%26#039;s what I%26#039;d get. There are so many colors to choose from. And even slip in 1 flower and maybe a candy bar, so she get%26#039;s all 3!! :-)
Reply:Here is what you do....

Give her the day off...

You do the dishes, cook the meals and look after your little brother who is an apprentice to the devil....

Then, by dusk, you give your mom a bunch of fresh flowers.

Buy only those you can afford...

She will love you for it, and remember it always.....

Try to combine the ideas ...... get with Dad and get her a trip to a day spa ... so she can get papmered, nails done, relaxed .... then cook her a good dinner !
Reply:take her out to a posh restaurant.



24kt gold ring and get it from ebay..... believe me. (trust me mums LOVE that)
Reply:Why not give her the day off. You do all her housework for her, that I%26#039;m sure she%26#039;d love.
Reply:You could cook her a nice meal .

If you%26#039;re looking for a fun and unique gift idea , these personalized soaps from soapcard. com should do the trick. they make soaps with your photo or just message embedded inside. I got one for my boyfriend and he loved it. You can write all kinds of funny stuff.... My boyfriend thought it was super cute! .the %26quot;Think of me when you%26#039;re feeling dirty%26quot; soap was the one he loved the most
Reply:Peanut M%26amp;M%26#039;s are in no way %26quot;fruity%26quot; and I have gotten them for my content father for his birthday or Christmas every year of my life. Please don%26#039;t ONLY get him the m%26amp;m%26#039;s if you do
Reply:Have you ever considered giving him a handmade portrait or painting of yourself – in your most cute appearance? You can select a suitable photo and then send it to and they will create a wonderful portrait out of it – on oil, pencil, charcoal or on canvas. Try it out! It doesn’t cost much.

If you are looking for an affordable gift urgently, the same company also has a studio for oil paintings reproductions. So, visit them at http://www.oil-paintings-reproductions.c... and take a look at their %26#039;stock on sale%26#039;.
Reply:for my birthday this year my girl got me a new .45 cal glock .
Reply:I’ll have to suggest

They offer beautiful and affordable hand made paintings from your favorite photograph. I find it a unique and creative gift. What I liked of them is that they at reeeeaally good at capturing the physical likeness. I was very impressed with the results. In addition to portrait paintings they also do paintings of pets, landscapes and anything that means something to you (like your first car, favorite vacation spot, etc). They’re the nicest people… because I was late with her gift they even hand made a custom card to notify my mother that a special gift was coming her way. I highly recommend them.

Best wishes!!

what about a animated character? maybe scooby-doo or barbie,i think that would be cute cuz girls like that stuff! hope this helps.

Reply:we did ice cream cones with cupcakes in the cone instead of ice cream---was fun.
Reply:Why not make special cupcakes and serve a fruit pizza? You can find the recipe for the pizza on the web. I can give you a site for directions to make special cupcakes. Ice cream sodas would be a fun drink to serve.
Reply:I take it you do not want store bought cake decorations then? How about marzipan fruits? You could also purchase fondant and tint and shape into anything you want really. I made some beach balls out of fondant, then I took natural sugar and put it on the cake to resemble sand, and then placed the fondant beach decorations on it.

For snacks, you can%26#039;t beat finger sandwiches, I love egg mayonnaise, tuna mayonnaise, ham, cheese, etc.

Birthday gift for mom? Spa, massage? Or Stay in super nice hotel?

OK every time my sister and I buy our mom a present, she never likes it. We buy her clothing, flowers, jewelry all of that mom stuff. But noooo, she never likes. So I%26#039;m thinking since she%26#039;s been stressed lately, my sister and I could go half and half on either a say in a really nice sophisticated hotel for a night or two and order room service and lavish in the luxuries of the hotel OR we could get her a gift certificate to a day spa where she can get a massage and facial and all that good stuff. Which would you go for? I cant decide. Or do you have a better idea? Please help. I%26#039;d rather not buy her anything. Thanks!

Drying out flowers?

i got a dozen red roses for my birthday and they are starting to die, I want to keep one as a memory, but I don%26#039;t know how to do so with out it wilting like the others, is there any way i can preserve it?

Drying out flowers?
put in da vase
Reply:Tye them together at the stems with a twist tie or elastic bands or string and hang them upside down off a cupboard or something.. that way the flowers will dry nice and straight and not have droopy heads..
Reply:My wife always wants to preserve flowers from funerals and weddings, etc.

I have found freeze drying to be the best.

While they are still fresh, I use a push pin to tack them to the side of a cardboard box in our deep freeze. After a few weeks, they are dry and you can do what you want with them.
Reply:Tie the flowers together with string at the end of the stems, like a bouquet. Find a warm dry area in your home and use the ends of the string to hang the flowers upside down. Leave them undisturbed for about four weeks to ensure that they are thoroughly dried out. They are then ready. Handle them with care to ensure that the petals do not detach and they will last a life time. :)
Reply:You can get some silica sand or silica gel from you local craft store like a Hobby Lobby. This product is used for flower preservation and does a wonderful job of drying roses while retaining color and shape.

Birthday gift for 19 yearold girlfriend?

dating for 3 years ( im 19 too ) got her a ring a before, jewelry, flowers, made her stuff, cd%26#039;s. been there done that lol. i need a fresh new idea, bought or made. any suggestions will be good =) also if it is bought please make sure it is less than $70. ( haha university students were poor)

Birthday gift for 19 yearold girlfriend?
Are you artistic? If so, you should paint/draw/sculpt her something. It will mean so much because it truly came from your heart.

If you aren%26#039;t artistic yourself, you can take a picture of her (or the two of you together) and have an artist from your school draw it. Then you buy a cheap frame from a thrift store and you have the perfect gift.

Good luck!
