Dolphins...

Now I have your attention, I need some help please.

I would like to buy my GF something a little special, not jewellery, but something authentically Mexican.

say around the 150 GBP mark.

i am totally devoid of ideas and any help is really appreciated.

basically i have had a real rough 9 months and i want to give her a present as a token of my thanks. (no i am not expecting) lol

Yes..that got my attention smarty pants. LOL

Does she like art (paintings)? If yes, maybe check to see if the Thursday night art walk still takes place...it started around Constituyentes and headed north. Or there's a gallery on 5th. http://galerialaquinta.com/

No worries...I had a good giggle out it. :-)

Another option..the jelly fish lamps. I expect you could get one custom made for far less than 150 GBP.

Great title, lol!

I found Tulum to have the most unique jewelry places....most of the shops in Playa sell the same old silver (and not-so silver) stuff they were selling on the beaches 20 years ago. You maybe could do a day trip there and let her pick out something she loves...that is what I would appreciate most!

jph15178...jelly fish lamps..you can buy them on 5th..there's a shop http://www.jellyfish.com.mx/ on 5th av and calle 4 that I bought from as well as a shop around 5th and calle 6 or 8 (whatever the cross street that Burger King is on..assuming it's still there lol)...there was a man making them just outside of Domingo's Bone Art store. They also had better prices at the store across from Domingo's but people have written that the farther away from 5th you go the better the prices but they weren't that unreasonable.

Haha jph. Love this. I really love those lamps too. Hoping they are small enough to fit in the suitcase. If not, could one be taken on as hand luggage?
