Need some advice. [Updated]

Hey everyone. Didn't know where else to post so I came to my fellow BMW addicts. It is my girlfriends 21st birthday this weekend and I don't know what to get her. A week after that is going to be out 7 year anniversary on the 13th of February. Any ideas as to what I can get her for her birthday? I kinda have the anniversary figured out, but suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for all the help.

UPDATED: I ended up having her surprise party at my house over the weekend. I bought her a black and white diamond necklace that she got on Saturday . On her actual birthday which was on Monday was the first day of college, so the party wasn't happening on that day. Instead we went out shopping for her, and had a nice dinner. Everything went better than planned. Thanks for all the advice.

NOW... On February 13, is our 7 year anniversary. I was going to propose on that day but a few things got a little delayed so its going to have to wait a bit. I was thinking of just getting her roses and another night out together. Let me know.

Seven years together and you are asking us on the BMW forum what to get her? Maybe a new boy friend... since she was 14!! How about her FREEDOM I bet she would love that?

Yup I was thinking the same. As for speed wagon I'm not holding her down. If we have been together for that long it is by choice on both sides. It's great you should try it.

I meant nothing bad by my post. I was thinking more on the lines of being able to be Independent first. Not saying that she isn't! I think long term commitments are great also, I have been happy with the same great woman now for 34 years, last weekend.

If you don't mind... What was it you got her? I'm going to be having her surprise birthday party with some of our friends, but besides that haven't thought of a present.

Really expensive box of chocolates and a gift card

Usually she loves chocolates but not this time. She is not really supposed to be drinking so I couldn't get anything like that. She would not tell me a damn thing she wanted so i tried to go the safe way. Backfire. "chocolates are an apology gift" wtfe

I feel your pain I tried asking in a million ways and she won't give in. Ehh I guess if i cant find anything else, I'll probably just get her a spa day and offer her to go shopping.

Saw the Armenian flag on your profile. I am also Armenian and so is she. The way our culture works, a trip wouldn't really be an option, at least not yet.

Lmfao that's hilarious. Wouldn't hurt to do something funny like that but I would still end up needing an actual present.

ultimate trick op.

Ask her to guess what you're getting her for her birthday. She'll name some of the things she wants.
