Nope, not at 2 months. I personally think its too early for that. Earliest I would do for that is x-mas which would be just short of 5 months.


so if I were to do a single or two roses....what color?

ok I think I have come up with what I want to do.

1 a single flower
2 letter from me (scented)
3 some baked good, since I like to cook and she lives in a dorm w/o a kitchen


should I send it with an ice pack (I have these ones that last forever..).to keep the flower cold and hopefully lasting longer. What is the best way to ship that. Obviously buying it and overnighting it is the smartest, since I didn't plan ahead enough to dry it out. But what to do with the flower, foil and a wet towel on the bottom? something to keep it cold? idk?

I guess I could do that too. Wouldn't it make sense for it all to come together?

Take a look thru www.redenvelope.com and get her something nice. If you can spend money on your car, you can spend money on her

As for Roses (IMO) I would go white or possibly pink, 1/2 dozen (1 rose says your cheap). The color is dependant on how strong the relationship is between the two of you

Red=Red roses proclaim "I love you." They are the ultimate symbol of romantic love and enduring passion.

Pink=Pale pink roses connote grace, gentleness, and gratitude.

Yellow=Yellow roses indicate friendship and freedom -- so don't send them if your intentions are romantic and long-lasting. Yellow roses are also appropriate for sending congratulations to newlyweds, graduates, Texans, and new mothers.

White=Pure white roses symbolize truth and innocence. They also send other messages: "I miss you" and "You're heavenly."

Good luck dude

Okay- I've got to ask... why get her anything for a 2 month anniversary??? I could understand the 1 year mark but does she expect something for each month?? I guess that would be fine if you were in high school.

I guess if you were going to do anything flowers or teddy bear would be nice.
