4 month anniversary gift ideaPage 1 of 1    
my gf is 19 years old, tomorrow is our 4 month anniversary.
We are from Nanaimo, B.C Canada.
any ideas?
i wanna give her a surprise though.

Our relationship wasn't that smooth actually, her parents are strongly aganist us to be together. Now she only sees me two times a week behind her parents.
Her dad is a redneck, hate Asian.

She is a faithful church girl, we know each other at the public library and then met again at the church. She had my promise ring already.

Two ideas come to mind...

four roses, one for each of the months you have been together...

and/or

find an old skeleton key from a thrift store, or your attic or basement, or from an old hardware store... tie a red ribbon through it, and tell her "she holds the key to your heart". Bring along a one of those key rings so that she can attach it to her set of keys, and her dad surely won't no the significance of it!

She'll alway be able to have something you gave to her, at all times...

Good Luck

Wow....tough situation. When he finds out, he's going to hate you even more. And parents always have a way of finding out. It sucks that you can be open with your relationship.

Maybe you can figure out how to be with her for a ''real'' date. A nice picnic in the park or a dinner out. After your meetings in the library it will be far more special.

Get her a bookmark from either a craft store or a card shop that has some type of significance to your relationship. The meaning could be found strictly in the design or by the words on it. Keep it about happiness and friendship and how special it is to know others and not about love.

Or something she can wear in her hair on special occasions or even church without being too 'in your face' re: her father.

What kind of things is she interested in? Seems like she likes books, since you met at the library, so maybe get her a book by her favorite author or something. Tailor it to things she likes and you'll never go wrong.

is our 4 month anniversary.

any ideas?

That's the nicest thing I have came across, so affectionate and caring. It's nice for people to think that way, especially after dating for only 4 months. I never experienced anything like that before/within/after a relationship of 10 years.

Very sweet.....

I got her dark Pudy (a Canadian brand) chocolate and 4 pink roses, however, guess what? because i know she loves reading, i bought her "classic American car album"
lol

she was sick yesterday, we only met about 1 hour.

she can not bring anything home as her dad will get really mad.
Our relationship has to keep quiet............

past 2 weeks, she had a lot of pressure from her family because our relationship, she can't even sleep well, her stomach can not take anything she ate.

yep, it has only been 4 month, but feel like a year.
Her parents do not like Asian, our dating is basically without her parents support.

I am still not very confidence of our future, since her parents do not like my ethical background, I am a Chinese-Canadian. They are white, catholic.

her mom told me directly, they live under welfare, well you have a good career and a house. they still live in a rental basement.

I told her I do not care.....

Beside, her dad and family sell dubee in my community, lives in a ghetto. although my gf does not touch any those crap, don't even drink at all.

My gf talks about marriage stuff next year, in my deep mind, i am not really sure about this...

i do love her, but all i am thinking is long-term stuff, how her family could accept me?

I am glad to hear what you did, I am sorry to hear the stress is getting to her.
I also have some Ironclad advice. if she isn't willing to go it w/o family and they will never accept you. You are setting up for a heartbreak.
Sorry
