Default Female friend wants a birthday present.....help. - 04-05-2013, 03:24 | posts: 3,878 | Location: Logd n jst 2 change avatar

Made a new friend a few months back, this friend is female. What the hell have i gotten myself into. It wants a birthday present, she likes horses and hunting, that much i know.

I cant afford a horse, nore do i feel the need to encourage the blowing away of animals for pure entertainment. But what i do have is any number below zero in experience with this sort of thing...women, i mean.

Please, what do the more experienced suggest.

Also, shes turning 20, if thats any help.

Take her on a date to a shooting range for her birthday. If you handle your pistol well there, I'm sure you'll get somewhere with your own pistol, if you catch my drift.

She told You she "Wants a present" ? If so Run like hell from her. If You just think She would like a present well then get her An nice orchid or take Her to the Gun range. (much better than cut flowers imo)

Best avoid anything that could be seen as romantic.

She likes guns? A cap gun would be a funny/inexpensive present.

+1..

I got my friend (she turned 20 just over a month ago) a new pink IME 3.0, a Nagisa Furukawa figure, silenced her HTPC and brought her some fresh fruits. I spent most of the time between xmas and her bday trying to decide what to get her though.

Whatever you get her, the next year she will expect a bit more so start lowish.
She'll be easier to please afterwards if her expectations arent put too high.

A bunny that takes batteries will be fun.
The next step from that is a good un, but hopefully you'll have made it that far before next year

Take her somewhere relaxing/fun where you can do things together.
Hide a rose somewhere (wrapped so it cant be damaged) and give it to her when she wont expect it.
A nice surprise.

edit:
Ah, if she has a bf, then go easy.
A card and a flower probably.

Wouldn't bother with anything then - why waste your money if you're not going to get a shag out of it - unless she's that way inclined.

If you really feel obliged, then get her a scarf and some gloves so she can strangle and hang her bf then go out with you.

The danger is if you get a good a novel gift is that you will out do the BF gift. Something simple that shows you have given at least 10 minutes thought to it. A pocket warmer if it gets cold hunting, a simple hip flask depends completely on your price range something she might use more than once.
