Birthdays are always a special occasion and rightly so. It is that one day of the year which you can call your day. All the cake, gifts and pampering, just for you. That said, birthdays are all the more important to girls. They make lists for their birthday parties months before their birthdays, the countdown begins a month before at the least, you have a special reason to shop that is ‘birthday shopping’ and what not. In all of this, the girls always remember and cherish those people who go the extra mile to make their birthday an eventful one and the one that they won’t forget. Parents, friends, boyfriends or husbands, whomsoever it be, you forget a girl’s birthday, you’ve had it from her. Birthday gifts can be a tough puzzle to crack for the guys. A girl may want a million things, but to gift her the perfect thing for her birthday will make not only her day, but her year. So for all those guys out there who have a tough time choosing that perfect gift for their girlfriend’s birthday, fret not, we are here to the rescue with some cute gift ideas for the girlfriend –
12. A Photo Collage
A photo collage is a very cute idea for your girlfriend’s birthday as it is thoughtful and also has a personal touch to it. You can actually make a collage in a certain shape such as a heart or star etc by cutting the photos properly. Please don’t resort to an online photo collage maker as it just shows your uninterest. You can take pictures from your days of friendship, your first date, a trip you took together, a picture with her friends, parents, pet etc to make sure that you know you’re thinking of her. It is an inexpensive but a very adorable idea.
11. Tickets To A Play/Museum She Likes
A girls may want all things fancy but she will forget all of that for a gift that someone has put thought into. Nothing can sweep her off her feet like giving her the tickets to a play, a match, a concert or a museum that always wanted to go. It shows that you listen to her and are interested in things that make her happy. A romantic play or a romantic gig can make things even better and she will always thank you for the kind gesture.
10. A Gift Hamper
A gift hamper can always make a girls day. Now a days, gift hampers are easily available online and in shops. Some shows also let you make your own hamper by choosing what all you want in the hamper and they decorate it for you. The Body Shop has some of the best hampers that includes body butters, lotions, soaps, perfumes, moisturizers etc. These are all the things that a girl wants and the fact that she gets them all at once, packed in the most cute basket with a bow on top is even better.
9. Candy Bouquet
Girls like flowers, girls like chocolate and girls like gifts. You mix all of them in one big gift – what could go wrong? Candy bouquets are a new concept wherein, you have a bouquet that is entirely made up of candies and chocolates or a flower bouquet which has chocolate bars here and there. You can make such a bouquet by yourself and choose all her favorite chocolates and flowers. It is a very innovative idea. You can put a small card in between or stick many tiny notes on the chocolate bars with sweet messages.
8. A Day At The Spa
Everyone works hand in their lives and everyone deserves a good break. Make your girl feel like she deserved to unwind and relax for a day and book an appointment for a full spa day with your girlfriend for her birthday. It is better that such a spa day is made one day before her birthday so she can relax without missing people’s calls for wishes and so that she can feel youthful and rejuvenated for her big day. Such a gesture will truly show how much you care about her health and well-being too. You can take the spa together so that you can spend more time with her.
7. Personalized Gifts
Nothing pleases us more than a gift which has a warm personal touch. You can gift her a personalized painting, jewelry with her name or something that she believes in on it, mugs, bed-covers etc.Today, buying such gifts is extremely easy and there are also some stand-alone shops which make personalized tshirts etc on demand. If you don’t want the world to know what the personalized gift has to convey, put something that is an inside joke or a secret between just the two of you. This will make her feel loved like nothing else.
6. Birthday Week
It is the latest trend to celebrate a loved one’s birthday and the girls will especially love such a heart-warming surprise. The idea is to celebrate not just a birthday, but the entire birth-week by sending or giving 7 small gifts for each day of the week. You start exactly a week before her birthday and send the better gifts as the birthday gets closer. The perfect gifts for a birthday week are glowers, cards, cupcakes, books, hand-written letters, bracelets and other dainty jewelry etc. You can organize a surprise party for the actual birthday. This is a gift like no other!
5. Clothes & Shoes & Accessories
All a girl wants and needs are some great clothes, shoes and accessories to go with that and you can give her just that for her birthday. But this doesn’t simply mean that you pick out a top or a dress and give it to her. You can actually make a goody bag for your girlfriend. Buy a bag that she’s been eyeing for months and buy dresses or tops that YOU think would look great on her and put them in the bag. Get shoes to match with the clothes you’ve bought and accessories too. This way, she’ll know that you have put some thought in the buying of the gift.
4. Handmade Cards & Flowers & Soft-Toys
If you are creative enough and want to show how much you love her, you can make her a big card and pen down all your thoughts about her and your relationship in a hand-written letter. A nice bouquet of flowers can also be a great gift for a girl who values thought more than the cost of the gift. And of course, no matter how old a girl is, her heart will always melt at the sight of a soft-toy. Cards, letters and flowers may be called old-fashioned but a romantic-at-heart will always prefer such small genuine gestures over lavish ones. A letter written in ink will always be more heart-felt than a one written in Arial font in size 10.
Jewelry, whether dainty or boisterous, always has a way to find the door to a girl’s heart. And a piece of jewelry that is not just with a big price-tag but with lot of warmth and thought behind it, is always a good idea. A pretty ring, a dainty necklace, cute earrings – the options are endless. All you have to do is choose the one you think your girlfriend can wear the best. Jewelry sets are also a great option for gifting your girl. And of course, you can also get personalized jewelry online. It doesn’t have to be Tiffany’s, it just has to be with loads of love.
2. Romantic Dinner Date
Believe it or not, every girl wants a guy who buys a dress for a girl and leave it on her bed with a note saying ‘Be ready with this on at 7.’ It is unbelievably romantic and the girl’s heart will melt within seconds. So that, a nice romantic dinner date is definitely one of the best ways to surprise and to gift the dress to your girlfriend. Again, the restaurant may not have to be a grand one. A quaint little place with good food, a nice glass of wine is just about perfect for any girl. And the very fact that you took so many efforts to make her day special will bring any girl to tears.
1. Romantic Vacation
And last, but not the least in any way, is the perfect gift that you can gift your girlfriend – some quality time with YOU, away from the daily hustle-bustle. Now,m quality time can be spent in the comfort of your home as well, but a vacation gives the girl a chance to take a break from the every day monotony and spend time with you in a more relaxed environment. A road-trip, a weekend spent in a cottage, foreign country or whatever it is that you can do for her, she will always be grateful. A place she has always wanted to go, or a place that toy wanted to always take her to, anywhere is good. The idea is just to go away, together.
