Default what to get gf ? (calling the BC women and sensitive men)

So here is my situation.

I have a gf that goes to Ohio state, and as most of you know I go to RIT in Rochester NY. Which is a good 6.5 hour drive. And due to a poorly placed friday class I dont finish until 12 so making weekend trips is rather tough.

We are comming up on our 2 month this weekend. I would like to get her something. I haven't seen her in 3 weeks, and due to the way some exams and weekends fall I likely wont be able to see her for another 5 weeks.

I need some ideas of something cute to get her. I was thinking a teddy bear and flowers, since the bear can be there instead of me (or along that thought process) and flowers are always cute.

I guess I am stuck as to where to get them (online would likely be best I guess) or to have a local flower shop down there deliever.

any ideas?

I'm not sensitive okay?

Rob, that idea is a good idea, but maybe buy a reasonably cheap locket and stick your pic in it and mail it to me and I'll hand deliver it to your gf so I can see her for myself.

Damn it, I forgot to finish my post. I was going to say, send that locket to me along with some money and a lovely handwritten card that said "Sorry *insert her name*, I would love to be here next to you but Rob-bear will have to do, he has a locket for you"

then I'll go get a lovely bear and give it to her.

Online will be expensive as hell

Do a yahoo yellow pages search for florists in the area and do it that way

Flowers and a teddy bear would work or either a nice gold locket with your pic

Make the drive and suprise her and deliver it yourself

stop at show world. They'll have everything she'll need to when you are not there...

teddy bear is a good thought. a shirt might work. or a teddy.

i'll ask the girl if she has ideas.

Making the drive is pretty much out of the question, as much as I would LOVE to. Not to mention that this weekend is NYBF...and I am not missing another meet. Especially since people are staying at my place and I have mods planned for my car.

Jewerly is good, but I would prefer to save that for a 3month or x-mas or her birthday. (and she has VERY expensive tastes in jewerly)

If I go with local flowers that will deliver, and a teddy bear which will likely be online...is there any way to sinc that time wise so she would get them at the same time.
