Due to your circumstances (deployment) If it is a gift to show her you are there in heart and spirit while your gone as well you might consider one of thoes Half heart pendent things the gives her one half and you the other.

Just a thought. You can leave with a goal that the Neclace and you two will be together agian soon.

Congrats on your Two years. Bless you Both.

Can I ask you where are you going to be deployed? And what is your ''trade'' in the Army/marines/navy/airforce?

I love that idea......or if you cant find something like that...do what my husband I did, when I was sent overseas....get a necklace...she gets one thats shaped like a heart...and you get the one thats shaped like a key....

If I remember right the saying on the necklace says something along the lines.......He who holds the key...unlocks my heart....

Just a thought.....eitherway...congrads to the both of you and I hope you have a save journey...come home safe to the ones the love you most!

God Bless you for what you're about to do. I speak from being there, its going to be hard...but keep your head up solider....you'll get through it... I did.

Just go to your local jewery store and look for something she'd like. What about a set of pearls...if the relationship is serious... those and the money you are talkin is some desent cash...

I think dinner, a movie, and a 6 pack would be a another great idea along with a gift of some kind at the dinner. That would be the best... ya know... that ole saying....wine, dine, and 69...

Too bad it is not in United Arab Emirats, I heard that they have lots of nice gold jewelry there and very cheap. Nice to know another A/F dude, that know what is a bomb. I did some buildup in a <bumb dump> here in Bagotville and was qualified loader/wingman on CF-18 for 2 years. Long live the armors!!!!!

got a camcorder? pre-record a special anniversary message and send it to her on the date (maybe with flowers). or send her a singing telegram (i'm a sucker for those). are there any barbershop quartets out there. perhaps some singing elvises? it is vegas, right? that's what i would like anyways. all of those ideas would go well paired with jewelry as well. good luck with it. and thank you for serving.

when you turn your bike on, does it return the favor?

This is one of the coolest and most personal gifts I've found in a while. Check it out:

I got one done for our 2nd anniversary (I'll find a copy of it and post the picture later). It is so cool because it is done personally for you. Check it out...I think you're girlie would find it really special.
