Hi to all!

I’m Dan, and yes “male” here. Although i know that the percentage to be accepted in this forum is too low, i took my chances. I told my story to the Admin and promised that i just want to ask for ideas so here i am!

I know this is NOT the right thread to introduce my self(cuz i saw the introduce thread) But to make the story short, I am 29 years old and currently based in Japan. After years in relationship(childhood love)I got married to my lovely wife last year Dec 30(yes! at last!). She will soon celebrate her 30th birthday(April) and i only have 1 month to go, since i only have male friend, and not so close female friends(stopped getting too close to female friends since the start of the relationship) i tried asking ideas from other sites but i only got BS answers.

(so back to the topic) i want to make her birthday extra special, i already booked for a dinner in one good spot here with good view, and i already bought a dress for her, but i want to give her something, like something that she can hold or she can keep and remembered her 30th birthday when she sees it. it doesn’t need to be expensive, but the thing is i cant come up with a good idea. So i’m asking for your help/ideas.

In advance i want to thank all of you.
and sorry for my english-_-.

(im in an IT job so i wont be able to answer ASAP but i will check this when i get home)

Thank you again, Have a pleasant day to all of you.
chao!

Oh dear, time for the cliches.

Sorry, but it’s the thought that counts. So pretty much anything will be good.

Flowers are just great and not terribly expensive. If you want to spend some money, then a bracelet from the local jewellers will not bankrupt you. Does she wear chunky or fine jewellery? That is your main question, as you mustn’t buy chunky if she likes fine, and vice versa.

Avoid rings as you will get the size wrong.

But seriously it IS the thought that counts, so you ca’t go far wrong just buying something.

Anyway, give us a giggle, what did your male friends tell you to buy. wink

I agree with Cherry here, give her something like a Bracelet or a pendant if she already got a chain or a necklace with pendant.  The dress won’t last.

So take her to dinner and give her the jewelry.

How about a photo album filled with some pictures of you both and some with friends? You could leave some pages blank so she can add more memories later.

Just a thought.

I’m sure she will be thrilled with the dinner and the dress.

Let us know what you decide?

Hi acherrystone!
Thank you so much for the idea! ill include bracelet in the list!
And flowers is included in the dinner reservation so ^_^.
she’s works as a pilot so i think fine is better rather than chunky.

You know male stuffs, full of BS. (most of them)bring her to 2nd honeymoon, (one says) give her a box of condoms,  (most of them) see through costume, the best answer i got from them is buy her a good wine bottle, but in the end they said then do the 2nd honeymoon -_-. You know what i mean when guys talk.

Thank you so much again!

@annelee
I will definitely do that! i think i can request for our 1st dance song to be played by the pianist!! LOL sorry im just so in love with her.

Thank you annelee!

You could buy your wife something that has sentimental value, such as a framed theatre ticket of your first date together or a single photograph of a special day out. Anything that has meaning to her and that she will treasure and think of you when she looks at it. I agree about buying a fine bracelet and not a chunky bracelet. Definitely buy jewellery that fits her personality and lifestyle.

First up: Your English is fantastic smile

Second: not to upset the balance, but I’d avoid expensive jewellery unless you know for sure what her taste is. I spend far more time around guys than girls and you have no idea how often I get confused lads asking why their wife or girlfriend doesn’t wear that piece of jewellery.

It’s a ridiculously personal thing! However, if she has any girl friends that can be convinced to keep a secret, ask them. Chances are she’s talked more to them about the colours, style, gemstones, weight, width etc of the jewellery she likes. Also, NEVER trust a salesperson in this regard. They’ll point you towards expensive pretty things, not a personal one.

I’d also advice you to not forget the little things. Women like to feel like their husband’s know them. Remember little things that are important to them. For example, I came home the other day to find the very last episode of friends had been recorded. It’s my favourite out of the entire show, so my husband had literally trawled through week after week to find it and record it so I wouldn’t miss it.

Small, simple, practically free but it meant the world that he’d gone to the effort. Little things add up smile

I agree: it’s the little things and small gestures that matter. Women tend to love being treasured and thought about. Romance and nostalgia mix well.

These are great ideas and inputs.

Per John Gray, the author of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus,  It’s the little thing that count. 24 roses is 1 point but one rose is also 1 pt. Taking the trash out is one point but taking her to an expensive restaurant is also one point so there you go.

And I agree with him.

Good luck, Dan!
