A Blog from Organic Chemistry Lab

Hey everybody, I'm in organic chemistry lab. It's really interesting (I'm sure you'll find it so): we're performing a Pd-C catalyzed dehydrogenation/hydrogenation of cyclohexene to produce cyclohexane. Right now, the mixture is refluxing, so I'm just sitting and waiting while that goes for 20 minutes. Silviu wants to know what to get his girlfriend for Christmas, and several of us are trying to help him. I told him to get flowers on top of whatever he gets, but we can't figure out exactly what he wants to give as the main gift.

Someone just suggested he cook for her...he's not sure.

Silviu says: "Help me figure out what to get my girlfriend for Christmas and one-year anniversary. Post them here and I'll read the comments."

So, help him out, guys! (Er, particularly girls.)

hrmm...if i help, isn't that cheating for Jeffrey? ;)

anyway, Silviu, yes, get flowers on top of whatever you get, but as far as the main gift...that depends on the girl so much...there's not a sure fire gift for girls (yes, more ways for us to be complicated). if she's a girly girl, get her things to pamper herself...(MATCHING SCENT) lotion, shower gel, bubble bath, candle, etc. Or, if she's not a girly girl, get her something she enjoys doing...contribute to a collection, hobby, etc. depending on serious the relationship is, you can progress from there...i would need more info before giving advice. i hope this helps a /little/ though...

Hey thanx a lot for the advice Abi! I guess that's what i'm having a hard time with... picking out the main gift. jeff recommanded the flowers as well so im pretty sure ill get those but as for the main gift it's really stressing me out! She is a combination of both a girly girl but at the same time she plays pro soccer...any other comments are welcomed! Thanx

I recommend getting a gift that contributes to a hobby you can both enjoy together.

Like a bowling ball custom fitted to her hand and a pair of bowling shoes.

Now you can both join a league and not have to worry about coming up with new ideas for dates every week AND you can save a ton in shoe rental costs! :)

How dreamy!

hahah Jeff bro it looks like you might be gettin just as much help from this blog as i am lol. Anywho everyone I appreicate your ideas a lot! Check this out! I think i found the most romantic perfect anniversary gift! I already bought it cause it was amazing, at least i think so. So i found this really awsome cryztal bottle that's shapped in the form of a heart and it has a big silver key on the outside with a note that says "key to my heart" and than inside its filled with preserved silver encrusted rose petals along with a sweet message from me which just happens to be an amazing poem. So its basically a message in a bottle but a lot more special. Now im still tryin to figure out what to get her for xmas. Anyway to all the guys thinking about impressing their gfs i think something like that will def do the trick along with a romantic candle light dinner....good luck and if anyone has more ideas they are still welcome! I am out cause i got a bio test tomorrow!
