dont quibble over the dollar cost for a "first gift purchase", take her to a local watch store and let her show you what her tastes are.

act like you want to get one for yourself and ask for her opinion. inevitably, she will look for one herself.

take her to the mall and check out the zales, bailey banks and biddle, helzberg et al.

she will go to work with that watch on and tell everyone she works with....

"he went to Jared"

then you can move on to diamond earrings for next time.

get a line of credit worked out in advance

Andrew, you need to spend more time with Matt. :)


Drew, someone said it earlier, but I think you should go with the perfume and then pick out another gift that you think she will like. That will show that you pay attention to what she likes, but at the same time you spent time thinking about her gift on your own.
Having the opposite viewpoint from you ensures my moral supremecy.

Robs, that's probably what I'll end up doing.

Ditto Robbie... Perfume and some other small trinket... www.redenvelope.com has some cool stuff. So does the National Cathedral store (https://commerce.cathedral.org/exec/ms/index.html).

Here's my thought--it's all relative. I think if you've already bought her a couple of gifts (in the perfume range or close to it) and/or she has done the same, you might want to go with the watch. Conversely, if you two haven't really done any gifts for each other (or very small), I'd probably start with the perfume and the other small items. If it makes you feel any better, I'm pretty sure that is what I got Lindsey last year--but it was perfume, and a bunch of other stuff because she didn't give me any help.

I would say don't be afraid to buy the watch if you really think it is appropriate/fitting for this Christmas, but don't be afraid to start off (relatively) small, too....Smooth

P.S. The Allure is good stuff......
I have no problem with people like Smooth who know what they believe and why they believe it - even if it is different than I.--UTwiz
