Dear god, shouldn't you have thought about this a week ago?

What does your girl friend do / like? What's her hobbies and interests? If she's into make up you could get her a $100 gift certificate for Sephora and she can pick her own stuff.

Damn talk about waiting till the last minute..

If you're crafty try making something in your spare time. I'm sure that will rank high in the "meaningful" column. Definitely more meaningful than almost anything you can buy in a mall.

Isn't there any little thing your girlfriend mentioned she likes or wants but never got around to getting it? Little things like that makes the most meaninful gifts. Even if its something stupid. Like my gf mentioned she wanted a black and white picture of the eiffel tower for her room, and when I got it for her she was soo happy and surprised I remember because she mentioned it when we first started to date. Iuno that's just my opinion

Check out groupon. There are spa and some hotel stuff too.

If I'm not working, I'm with the lady, so I am very limited on alone time to shop.
I got the 1 night at winery resort thing in osooyoos. Should be a good trip.

buy her a bit more expensive gift, she will like it more than spending a day or night with her alone.

the more useless the item to you.. the more she will like it.. if you buy her a gps or mp3 player.. since its useful she will hate it.. if you buy her make up she'll hate it cuz cuz she'll accuse you of thinking she is ugly.. just get her some useless sparkly crap (ie diamond, jewelry) or a stuffed animal XD

I went quantity > quality.
Instead of buying her a expensive piece of jewelry (that can give one the impression you just walked into a store and picked it up) I bought her a scarf, gloves (different colors. Like $1 each lol) matching hoodie I already have LOL, a cute cardigan, earrings and a few accessories.. Went to the dollar store and got a really pretty box to put the stuff inside, wrapped the box with wrapping paper and ribbons. Put a letter/card at the bottom of the box. (save the best for last) write something cheesy lol. The card costs a dollar and did magic last year. Total costed me around 80ish.
Have a shopping list in mind and know where to go. Forever21 has really cheap yet pretty stuff and old navy has simple stuff (scarfs) but 30% at checkout when you give them your email

If you want to get her something pretty get her a makeup set at sephora (limited edition doir collection) for like 60$.. Good luck!

EDIT

Expensive isn't everything man.. Unless youre dating some hella careless or superficial girl..
Reading your thread (http://www.revscene.net/forums/rant-never-buy-p7238816.html#post7238816)
Looks like you went the expensive route and wasn't happy about it

^Nice man, thats a good approach to Christmas on a budget! I also try to give a few small gifts if I need to shop on a budget. One of the reasons I find it works really well is that it shows you put in lots of effort, going to a few different stores, thinking of lots of different things, wrapping a lot of small presents.. these types of things make them happy.

Have you thought about getting your girlfriend a dyson vacuum cleaner? You could always help her cooking experience with some new pots and pans.
