    You can try to supplement your low budget with a little romance, depending on if your girl is into that kind of stuff.

    Take her to a nice spot in the park, or somewhere that holds sentimental value for the two of you.. give her a little bracelet and tell her you love her.

    Again, if your girlfriend is kind of sappy then that stuff works wonders.

    Whatever you get her make sure it's NOT a household utility - make it something personal.

    A little input on the lady's likes / dislikes would help, as well as her age. wink-fix.gif

    Buy a bow, cut some roses from somewhere. And a nice chunk of fudge from somewhere nice (that probably depends on the girl, but my gf would really like it, and I hear chocolate is one of the standard girl gifts.)

    Also, trinket jewelry, especially if you have a matching piece.

    you could always write her a poem or draw her a picture or make her some sort of craft, if you're any good at that sort of thing. provided you guys are already pretty close. if you're just, like, on a second date, she'd probably think it was weird if you wrote her a poem expressing your undying love... tounge.gif

    or if you're NOT creative, but you two are, like, during the madly-in-love phase of the relationship (if so - cherish that phase =p), you can buy her some nice romantic poetry, such as Shakespeare's sonnets. Most of them are just comments on love rather than being directly romantic though. you could highlight some of the good, romantic ones, like 18, 23, 31, 46, 53, 61, 75, 91, 98, 105, 116, 123... or you could plagiarize one or two of them on paper for her, such as famous #18 =p

    of course this is probably all moot as probably only like 1% of girls give a crap about literature in this day and age.

    Thats harsh man.

    Hum go some strawberrys if shes not alergic, some melted chocholate melts *note make sure you melt it slowly a glass bowl in a pot of slowly boiled water as you dont want to burn the chocholate. mixed with some sweeten condence milk, lay her down on a couch deprive her of some of her sensors and pamper her stupid, ya could throw in a bit of pain as its a fine line, and both pain and pleasure create endorphins, mixed with the chocholate, weather you get some or not her entire night will be on cloud nine, and a memorable occation.

    Some fairly exspensive ciggars and some playing cards.

    I think fetish NGC sells a really good ball gag for about 9 bucks.

    If I was sonic and really put my evil cruel genious to work on it I would say you could prolly get some date rape drug for your 15 bucks.

    Pay a delivary person to deliver her pure mountain spring water to her work all day the momment she finishes a bottle get her work mate to spy on her to call you to get another bottle sent up, it will detox her she might get a bit of a head ach, by time she gets over it she will be home, cook her a nice healthly meal. you all the day before need to flush out your system, then drink as much tropical or pineapple juice as possable on her water day, if yas do get it on make sure she has plenty of water to drink the entire time, keep plenty of towels on hand you both wont regret it.

    Pay a pidgion handler to bring two white albino pidgions, as doves are to exspensive and tend not to fly home like pidgions do, get him to release them with you there holding her hand after pulling her out of work have something sweet to say on hand.

    Find a snake handler or a arachnid handler, ask them politely if you and your girl can watch them feed, mate or lay eggs, tropical fish are another one high up the list.
    Depending on the time of the year, you do not want to miss the slug breeding season. the artisticness of two slimmy A-sexual creatures mateing is feirsly adictive, and a huge turn on for the ladies in most cases.

    There are some plants and some times of the year you dont want to miss ether, in australia right now is a good one with in two days a entire padocks of grass that had been dead for a year instantly turned green to instantly turn yellow and orange almost over night from daisys, there are plenty of rose gardens around and other such plant life, 15 bucks would just about get the two of you into a butterfly avarie, or a marinar/aquarium, they love hearing about cuttel fish and squids, paupasues and seeing sharks and such.

    In most cases it only takes a bit of research, pay attention to her and listen. if she has a fear prahaps try and put her in a carm safe enviroment and try and help her over come that fear, there are so many things you can do to leave a posative scare on someone of the opposite sex, you pull it off and its win win, you have done something great for someone and they know you have done something great and life changing for them.

    Some of the simplest things are the best in life, and so are some of the illegal. A good old fashioned joint of hootchie cootch could see a fun night.

    Evil genius in me
    The other out come is you could go into your local hard wares store, bye chemical splash suit some signs witches hats a mask of some form, for 15 bucks, walk into some random shop puting up something that looks like police line, ask the store owner to clear out NOW, there is a gas leak its in there best intrest they drop everything now and leave imediantly while you cheack for gas.. its your job to put your self indanger. Then clear out the till, and disapear.

    Buy her a fish, it shows that you have long term commitment to care and look after something.

    A CD with nature sounds running water, and just massarge her for hours till every knot is out of her body and she cant even move with out hurting her self.

    If shes into body art peaiceings and the sado in her is very willing and submissive, a handy knife and knowing how to do a running stitch could fair the two of you well, start with shellow cuts, note they are cuts and need to be done in a clean semi sterile enviroment, her back has a few good area's but if she hungers for pain a few clean scares quikely tended too will give her so much raw primal erges, so much endorphins the pain will fade away and be carefull she will more than likely drop the submissive and turn feral and go dominate on your ass, you will prolly be a worthless puddle of goo on the bed once shes done and had her way with you.

    You could decorate a meal or dessert she likes with her favorite flowers, even better if you cooked the meal. Make a gift out of homemade materials if you're good at arts and crafts. If your gift is small (as it probably will be at <$15), make the way she gets it special. Make her follow a bunch of notes or clues around some area she's familiar with until she gets the present. Use the notes to guide her to some of her favorite things, making the gift that much more appreciated.

    Also, it depends on the occasion. Anniversary, birthday, just a thank you?

    I am with Them and Liku (who is fun to pwn with a baseball bat).

    Find out what her preferred type of sweets are, and then make her some.

    Most things are rather simple to make, even some of the fancy ones. Cookies are nice b/c you can go the extra cheese mile and cut them in heats and what not. IF she likes actual candy you will need a decent cookbook (or a good amount of time searching online), but are still not all that hard.

    good luck biggrin-fix.gif

    Yeah the thing is I've already gotten her jewelry, flowers, cooked for her, stuffed animals, and all the other mushy crap you usually think of. I hate giving the same thing more than once.

    And there are already enough tumbles in the sack.

    i beg to differ.. if my bf got me lipstick i would possibly tell him to *insert insults here* and die in a fire...

    give me a knife anyday, but dont give me makeup... at least i can use a knife... tounge.gif




    $15 isnt much.. infact you could possibly just buy flowers, but most women nowadays assume youve done something wrong when you buy them flowers or chocolates.. So I have been told by my work colleages who brougth their fiances and gf's flowers etc.


    if its for halloween get her a pumpkin and draw her face in it *chuckles* i would love the present just for the humor and enjoyment of it..
