My wife and I are doing the Brighton Marathon (it's our first Marathon) and one of the things I did to persuade her to do it was the promise of a custom goody bag.  She always complains that the goody bags at races are poor.  Personally, I don't want anything- I'm just there for the race.  Anyway, I digress.

So far, I've thought of getting a selection pack of her favourite chocolate and a couple of bath bombs from Lush.  I've no chance of picking any clothes for her and don't have a clue what magazines I could get her.

So, can you guys help me out with some suggestions?  Thanks

something nice to drink.......and a voucher saying you will give her a 30 mins foot/ leg massage at the time of her choosing.....

Put a bottle of champagne in it. She probably won't be expecting that.

Hate to admit it but I'm going to have to agree with DF3 on this one.

Thanks for the necklace suggestion.  That's a really good idea.

A single red rose.

A miniature of her favourite tipple.

Have you considered a pearl necklace? They cost nothing and every girl loves one.


EVERY girl?

I suppose it depends on who is doing the giving David.......I can't imagine many women being willing to accept one from you

Pretty much Pudge, perhaps you could ask your girlfriend if she would like you to give her a pearl necklace and let us know what she says?


I could.  But I doubt the wife would too happy about it.

but people like Pudge do the funny gags David....there is a difference....he is not encroaching on your turf

Do you really have to bribe her to do races?  If so, I wouldn't bother.

If she doesn't want to do the race enough to just DO it, then leave her to it!

I am almost ashamed to say this Seren, but I do find David quite entertaining.

Someone once summed him up quite well; I think it was along the lines of "somewhere between twat and awesome".

David - I salute you sir.

Perhaps you could treat her to a facial?
