Give her a printed and bound copy of "Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!"

Nothing says "I've really enjoyed getting to know you these last few weeks" like giving jewelry to a woman who doesn't wear any.

Give her the T-shirt and the massage. It's a sure win...

The t-shirt will make a fun and clever stocking stuffer, but you should probably give her a "main" gift as well.

How many dates have you been on?

I like the spa idea. Hot tub, massage, dinner, and a night in a good hotel.

Depending on what her interests are, a Christmas ornament would be a thoughtful gift. Hallmark always has a lot of themed ornaments for around $25. If you know what fragrances she wears a bottle of her favorite perfume would also be nice.

Uh oh, have you checked for an adams apple?

I'm assuming she has SOME interests you've spoken about. Get her that. T-shirt is cute but I'd think you'd need a little something else. I'm assuming you are not 19.

Her interests include: being dressed, having bare arms

Should be plenty of high end spa options in Chicago. Do that, and score post-Christmas reservations at a nice restaurant.

Or a concert/jazz club and dinner.

I'd save the hotel for a future surprise weekend getaway.

Re: Christmas gifts early in a relationship

You fuckers got in my head, so I didn't get her the shirt after all. Back to square one. I'll take her out for a nice dinner.

Seriously -- a spa, fancy dinner, and a night in a hotel? I'm really supposed to drop $500 on a Christmas gift for a woman I've been seeing since mid-November? Let's be a little more realistic.

Wait, if it was a shirt of the nude Sarah Palin painting, you should absolutely get it!

Yeah, we spent a long night in that bar admiring the art. The one that depicts Newt Gingrich banging his third wife while his first two wives watch is my favorite.

Yes, that's raising the bar too high, way too fast.

T-shirt and massage still sounds good to me. You'll get a lot of points there for < $100...

Re: Christmas gifts early in a relationship

Give us all a present and stop being such a pussy and decide on something you know she'll like (I would hope if you're sticking your pecker in her that you have some semblance of her interests)...Sheesh, man...

I did decide, you jerk. I'm taking her out to a nice dinner.

(Because I do know her interests, and they don't lend themselves to tangible things).

At all? Tell that to the multi-billion dollar touristy trinket industry. There's a "keepsake" out there for everything.

Not saying dinner as a gift is a bad idea, but how is it different than a date?

Food isn't tangible? Heh. Who knew?

Yeah, you're right. It's getting back into the territory of my snarky remarks about diamonds and handbags.

Around here, you can go hot tubbing at a nice place for under $100. That's what I had in mind. It must be the hippy culture.

It better be a very nice dinner to count as a Christmas present. I hope we aren't talking about Sizzler.
