Me asking for girl advice, who wouda thought eh?

I'm not one to ask forumers for girl advice because normally everyone gives "hollywood" advice, but I'm in a jam and don't know who else to ask. I have a girlfriend, believe it or not and Christmas is coming fast. I have nothing for her and no solid ideas. I have a couple really good ideas but I can't pull them off. she asked me for a blender, she seems really serious about it but obviously I can't wake up Xmas morning and feel good about a blender....... covering my bases I got one just so she can't be pissed I didn't get her one...... but I need a main gift. Also, her birthday is on the 28th of December.....this is the first gift giving occasion I have been with her and I have 2 in a row....... infact this is the first time in a good 5 years I cared enough about a girl not to break up with her before a holiday just to avoid gift giving (ya, I know....I'm a prick) my other problem is this........ after only knowing me for about a month my birthday came along........ she went out and tracked down my most prized possession that I foolishly pawned as a teenager.......I had to pay my rent ....... i was 18 and pawning my 5 string Gibson epiphone reverse headstock bass was my only option. she found it in a different pawn shop in town and paid quite a lot of money for it.......... for a guess....... I got a little over $500 for it when I pawned it....... and pawnshops usually double or triple the price tag in there store........ my guess is she paid close to a grand for it. for Christmas she got me concert tickets, a remote control helicopter and something else I don't know about. also for valentines day she bought executive box seats for a licolin park concert (she had to tell me about the concerts so I could take the time off work....) I am not a rich man...... I make a few bucks........ but I'm not loaded........... I have no clue what to get her. some of the ideas I did have were: 1. redo her condo...... paint fix stuff up ...... kinda extreme makeover but not so extreme....... this is something I know would make her happy but I have no idea how to get her out of her condo for 2 days without her knowing whats gong on. 2. book a cruise or all expenses paid vacation........ but like I said I'm not a rich man.......so I'll have to like.....put a down payment on it and then like....... give her the receipt for x-mas and go like 6 months later........ but I don't know if thats stupid or what? the only other thing I can think of is like.......... random junk like the blender and maybe some other crap so she has a few things to open on christmas that she likes and or needs and then take her out for dinner for her B-day and give her a diamond necklace........ but I hate buying jewelry for chicks. I must get 2 separate gifts for her because in conversation she has mentioned how people give her stuff and are like happy b-day / x-mas and she hates it......she also hates b-day presents wrapped in x-mas paper. I know she'd be happy if I gave her a pack of gum from the corner store......she's not materialistic or high maintenance........ but I feel like I have to do something nice and special for her? any idea's? keeping in mind I'm not a rich man

I agree with goodhart. Except add this twist. Put a card in the blender that leads her to another card, which leads her to another card, etc. etc. The final card leads her to a nice present such as a necklace or whatever. Then take her out for dinner. I wish i had a girlfriend. _
As long as she doesn't try the blender before she looks in it...

lol
Will it blend!?
...yes...
If you are using the vitamix you can probably blend coconut rind LOL
Psst, Goodhart, that's a reference to a YouTube phenomenon, but of modern popular culture
Ok, that's 15 minutes of research time I will never get back LOL Thanks Kiteman for pointing out what he meant though, I would never have guessed. :-)
Hah, I was trying to figure out what you meant :P
The Vita-mix has such a powerful motor it can knead bread dough.

Yeah, I was going to suggest getting her one of those 'Will It Blend?' blenders. I think as an Instructabler, you could feel good about giving a gift with so much experimental possibility and destructive power. That, or cunnilingus, for like, a day...
