Default Gift for the girlfriend

Hey guys I need some help here. I am in need of a gift for my GF asap! Her B-day is wednesday and I am at a loss for a gift. We were supposed to go to Canada and hit the casino, but she is sick and decided against going, well that was going to be my gift to her, dinner drinks and a 100 bucks to gamble. Any ideas? We have been togeather for almost 6 years, and I have given her everything you could think of, so maybe some fresh ideas here will help.......

Thanks,
Chris

lock her in the closet today and give her bread and water until wednesday.

letting her out on wednesday can be your gift.

Well, if she is under the weather, I might suggest some alone time with her. Plan a movie at home, but first, you have to set the mood.

Make dinner, nothing fancy, something she likes and easy to clean up afterwards.

Offer her a hot sponge bath with aroma candles.

Turn the lights down, plop onto the sofa with a big bowl of popcorn, a big blanket, and a movie that you both like. Well, mainly what she likes. It is her b-day. You may even have to get a chick flick for her.

It worked for me a couple times. Saved me from the doghouse.

A gift to a day spa or something like that. FInd her favourite chick flick on DVD and give that to her. I love Mike'* suggestion, something from the heart, it does not need to be expensive, just something that you put some thought into.

Think of something you did 6 years ago and get her a gift to remind her of that time.(if it was a good time) But if all else fails just spoil her for a entire day.

Any woman worth keeping will enjoy being pampered more than an expensive gift.

Although.. a nice bracelet or something for her to wear is always a nice touch. I've always found there'* never too many back or foot rubs. .. Afterall... they put on high heels and attempt foot suicide just for us.

So true, Boost.....

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions! I appreciate it! I actually really like the idea of a day spa. Maybe I will stop and take a look at one that'* on my way home from work.......
