    Don't give her a perfume because she might hate it
    Urmm, a crrappy gift card and some things related to her hobbies maybe?
    I personally hate gift cards but when I ask women they like em even though you can only buy things at one frikking place.

    I don't think gift card will work. I actually would be embarrassed to give a gift card for 21st birthday. She won't remember it in 10 years.

    I already gave her the ring last year for Christmas (not engagement). If I give it this year it has to be engagement ring So no rings ...

    Now you see why it's so complicated?

    Oh something to be remembered in 10 years. Yeah, a kick *** ring. Or, go spend two weeks in Paris . Or just go someplace. Rent out a whole restaurant for the night and invite all her friends.

    Here's the thing about the restaurant.

    Her birthday is this weekend and I already reserved restaurant for 50 people for next week and she knows about it.

    Ring and necklace. Her parents already gave her an expensive ring and necklace (why?why?) so even if I give her a kick *** ring or necklace as a present it won't have that effect.

    I also have 5 tickets for Trans-Siberian Orchestra for the night before her birthday which she also knows about.

    It seems like I made enough of presents for her but I have nothing for her actual birth day and I won't feel comfortable by just giving her flowers. Do you see what I mean?

    Any other ideas / opinions?

    Rules for gift ideas for women are:

    1) Shiny things. (Rings, necklaces, bracelets.. think diamonds.)
    2) Smelly things. (Candles, perfume, those little dogs that when you hug them they smell like some scent.)
    3) Sentimental garbage. (Picture frame with your picture in it. Locket with your picture in it.)
    4) Something you would never think of having in your place. (Girly pillows, a pink blanket with flowers or angels all over it.)

    That should cover it.

    Kinky sex toys and objects may make it an interesting evening. Don't quote me on that.
