All-Expense paid vacation or tix for Alexander Hamilton

All-Expense paid vacation or tix for Alexander Hamilton - 03/21/2018 02:35 AM

It’s my girlfriend’s birthday in a few months and I want to surprise her on her special day. I can’t decide which gift to give her. I already have two options in mind. My first option is an all-expense paid trip to Cancun for at least three days. I’ve heard her saying before how much she wanted to go there. Her brother lives in Acapulco after he married a girl he met in some latin tour singles social event. Maybe I can ask him to come fly and see us during our stay. Like a little family reunion on top of our romantic holiday.

Another option in my mind is getting her tickets to see Alexander Hamilton. It’s not the Richard Rogers show but rather in the local theater during the U.S. Tour. It’s still Hamilton nonetheless. She’s a big fan of the show. She even made me binge listen to the songs with her. I must say it’s quite good. So, I need to make up my mind so I can make arrangements ahead of time. Both options need a huge chunk of money so I need to prepare for this.

I don't mean to sound crass but what strangers on a travel website think will make a better birthday present for your girlfriend is irrelevant. I'd venture to say half the people will tell you to pick the trip and the other half will tell you to choose the show.

You know your girlfriend better than any of us so it's really comes down to your decision. You could, ask her what she'd like but that would spoil the "surprise".

So, just pick one option and let it go at that. The upside to your dilemma is that regardless of which option you pick you can always do the other one at a later date - say one for her birthday and one for next Christmas.

Right! You might get a slightly skewed response due to the question being posed on a "Cancun..." thread.

One has to wonder if that was the intention!
