    I'm doing a spa package for my gf. It's a massage, facial and I think a manicure or something like that.

    Ask her straight up what she wants and then go get it.

    My wife has FINALLY realized subtle hints and clues given through the year don't register with me. This, even after I've told her this very fact several times.

    Last year, I took her to the mall and she went on a shopping spree. Thankfully, she decided to be nice (it is Christmas afterall) and not break the bank on me. She was very happy with her Christmas gift!

    Here's an idea though: A gift certificate for her and her girlfriend for a day at a spa.

    I think Temperflare had a good idea for a gift that always works for me--the gift card, and these you can buy in some grocery stores, like HyVee in Iowa, for all sorts of places, including some restaurants, as well as the usual suspects. But ask her first; gift cards are a backup position in my experience. Another hint: cuddle duds, which are a kind of long underwear but a bit fancier, are good if you live in a cold climate. Good luck.

    Victoria's secret, that way it's a gift both of you can enjoy. Or some diamond thingy usually works.
