What should I get / make / do for my girlfriend this year for our anniversary?

People of the internet, don't let me down.

I've thought of many things to get/make/or do for my girlfriend and i have come to realize they love the little things you fo for them. not trying to make them sound like robots but they really don't make a big deal if it was expensive or not.

For our 6th anniversary i made My girl a necklace with my favorite guitar pick i always use and she knew i charished that pick. then I took our favorite picture of us from my cell phone went to wal mart sent it bluetooth to the machine and printed an official copy one for her and one for me ten i wrote  her a love letter on the back. our anniversary before that i bought her, her favorite book and wrote her a letter. i'm planning something big this time tho.

going out to dinner girls love preferably not McDonalds or taco bell ick greasey fattness not attractive. A movie perhaps seen that it was suggested a bit, and last but not least going to the beach just don't throw her in getting wet is only fun when it's not in the public lol. don't get chocolate it's bad for the skin. girls love different flavours and smells.

Best of all just let her know you love her and she is the only amazing/special person in your life and always will be. Girls LOVE romance..........
Well for my girlfriend of eight years,when I decided I fell in love with her completely I got her a little kitten(check with parents if a minor) and got put a collar on it that I had a jewelry person engrave to say "I will live you forever" and invited her over. She got so happy and wouldn't quit kissing me for like three hours.
thanks for the advise it worked by the way im also tyler.
a KNEX set! of course!!

Build her a cake or something.

What should I build her a cake out of?
I was quoting a movie there. But seriously, why not build/make her a large cake made of concrete? Decorate it all fancy-like, with a thick layer of tasty frosting. Get plates and silverware ready to go, hand her the sharp knife, and let her do the honors. Hmm, I'm feeling useful here. Tell me a little about her personality--her likes/dislikes--and I'll see if I can't come up with some more ideas.

She likes trashy B-movies, coffee, stylish clothing, large dance numbers, fancy Asian food, flowers, handmade cards and the usual girly junk. She dislikes investment bankers and balloons. Albeit, I think she would be supportive of investment bankers dancing in unison with balloons.
 What, no long walks on the beach?

If she's really into coffee, I really cant say enough positive things about Blue Bottle Coffee. It's absolutely the best coffee and espresso I've had around these parts.

I'd better get best answer for this one.

You can't get best answer, you didn't answer directly. Nyah.

A home gym built out of cake.
randofo (author)  noahw5 years ago
She would eat it and then neither get in shape nor have anything to show for it.
build it out of fruit cake then
You are what you eat..

You know those glued-pasta pictures kids make in nursery school? Make one of those, two stick-people in a heart, and sign it with your left hand in crayon. Stick it to the fridge before she comes down for breakfast (or get her house-mates to to stick it on their fridge if you don't co-habit).
:D That's actually quite cute!

Wait, how did you post a week into the future?
XD nevermind, 2010...
Hm. Seeing as how this was posted 11 months ago, it's likely relevant again, no? :D

 I thought you had to be married to have an anniversary any way why not by her a dog or cat or something cute then ''accidentally'' kill it and enjoy having her cry on your shoulder

Coal. Tell her it's a DIY diamond kit and to start squeezin'.
randofo (author)  scoochmaroo5 years ago
She won't like that. You can't fool me.
Aww, hell. I've been squeezing this lump of coal for a year and a half now!
Rofl im doing this
hmmmmmm......... maybe you should give her a question asking "What should I get / make / do for my girlfriend this year for our anniversary?". It's brilliant
I don't see your girlfriend.

depends on what kind of girl she is,is it one year anniversary or more,if more then is you love her make her youres and marry her,not up for it the give her a nice necklace or earings and say(baby nothing means more to me than to have been with you for so long)

I suggest building a time machine...

Thats what i did to propose to my girlfriend (the machine contained a custom ring box)
See Box Here

Really, you know her the best, so, as long as you make something that reminds her of you, but also appeals to something she enjoys, your onto a win.

randofo (author)  gmjhowe5 years ago
Congratulations on the engagement. I think I will stick with something simpler than a time machine.
gmjhowe randofo5 years ago
haha! Does she like hello kitty? or something else along the lines of easily available mass produced cuteness?
randofo (author)  gmjhowe5 years ago
At one point I thought about getting her a Hello Kitty bass guitar, but it turns out they only make the bass guitars with one of the secondary characters. You need to get a fender strat to get a Hello Kitty pick guard. Even in the world of Hello Kitty, the bassist gets no respect. I wonder if I can buy one of those Hello KItty pick guards and attach it to a bass. Now, that is an Instructable...
yeah, you can, cause the hello kitty ones really suck
gmjhowe randofo5 years ago
Buy one of those pick guards!!! when you have full access to a lazer cutter? get too and make one! it will mean more, cost half as much, and make a much better ible. Please find the attached .eps file of hello kitty's face. I suggest cutting out the outline from a black plastic, then cut out the inside white bits, the finally the bow and nose. Then they will easily slot together.

Hrm.... I suppose I can laser cut that. I should go investigate the one in the store more closely. Not sure I will get that done in time though.
gmjhowe randofo5 years ago
Well, in which case, maybe its worth using another idea, then saving this idea for the next special event?
Bluetooth Retro Phone.

Try this!
Hardware Store Bracelet
Simple, inexpensive, and since you made it, a way to show her just how much you care.

I got it.. do what i did before, buy or find a ton of flower petals. try rose, because they actually have a whole number of colors. then find someplace where there is a ceiling fan (your house or something) and stack them behind the blades.. later somehow make her sit under the fan. then tell her that you remembered.. and turn it on.. worked for me.
Ask her to marry you.
randofo (author)  GorillazMiko5 years ago
Are you sure?
If you're serious about it, then yes.
gmjhowe randofo5 years ago
Depends how long you have been together... Or more importantly, how long you want to be together.
