    Hey I need gift ideas for my little sister who is 8 and my older one who is 22 and my girl friend who is 18. I would like one for my Mother as well.. I am not the best at ideas and maybe someone else is not the best as well. I am hoping we can make this into a gift idea help for Men and vic versa for women :)


    Please post your ideas or your woman who you want to give that great gift to ;)

    Price range?!
    Perfumes if they wear em'; sneak a peak to see what is in their collection and low - ask at local department store for something similar (cross fingers).
    Bras for the girlfriend - there is a "new" bra site called TrueAndCo. - my lady got some nice things from them (enough said).
    Your lil' sister: Dolls? iPad? EZBake oven? Subscription to VaultF4.

    My eventual wife is the easiest woman in the world to buy gifts for. I an guaranteed to get a good response from giving her a nice LEGO set (we are both huge afols) or pretty much any sort of concert tickets. She also likes cute and simple jewelry (especially earrings), although I hate jewelry in general I last picked her up a set of hand made tulip earrings off an etsy shop that could not have made her happier.

    For your situation, an 8 year old is pretty easy, just look at what she does to entertain herself and add to the madness, the older sister would probably enjoy a simple tech gift or anything that would fit in a college environment (assuming she is going to college). As for your gf, you know better than anyone what she likes =)

    Don't know about Canada, but Monster High dolls are very popular for girls.

    Am I alone in finding most dolls kind of creepy?

    I love how no women have posted here yet :p

    For your baby sister: My daughter is 7 and she is highly into Taylor Swift(posters, journal or she has a new CD out "Red") Monster High is touchy...gotta find out if she even knows what that is...my girl doesn't like it. Unfortunately Justin Beiber is also a hot commodity, although I don't promote it here.

    Girlfriend: Any jeweler should have an inexpensive, white gold, heart shaped necklace. Guaranteed to melt any girl.

    Older Sister: If she has an E-Reader of any kind, look into a gift card for Amazon or wherever she buys her e-books from. I hate to keep suggesting gift cards but VS, Buckle and the like are great for college aged women because the shit there is too expensive to buy on her own.

    Mom: A ginormous basket full of pamper items. Seems generic but trust me, moms want to relax and feel pampered. OR if you don't want to go trolling the stores for that stuff, find a local spa and get her a gift certificate for a day at the spa :)

    I suggest not buying perfume unless you know the EXACT kind they love.
    I know this will sound cheesy, but as a mom I'd LOVE for my son to cook a meal or bake something for me. Or make some sort of coupons for raking the yard, washing the car..that kind of stuff.
    For the sisters, why not ask what kind of stuff they like. It's better than getting something they won't use.
    ah..and I agree with Lava about the girlfriend. a nice cute necklace is perfect.

    lol, when I was younger my mother would never let me do any sort of cooking and only let me help with baking. Now, when she comes over for dinner, she wants to go back in time and kick herself because I am quite capable in the kitchen and really enjoy cooking, she missed out on a lot of chances to not have to do all the cooking herself.

    My son is 13 and can cook just about anything from good pasta dishes to making sushi rolls. My daughter does okay, but Sam is the one who loves to cook.
    Iceh..can you cook? Do you think your mom would like something like that?
