Your girlfriend's birthday is an opportunity to show her how much you love and appreciate her. However, finding the perfect gift can seem a little daunting, particularly if you are not fond of shopping. If your girlfriend has not made any hints as to what she would like, surprise her with a homemade gift or arrange a day out that you can share together.

A Little Luxury
Let your girlfriend indulge in a little luxury on her birthday. Busy daily work commitments mean that she may not get the chance to pamper herself as much as she would like to. Book her an appointment to get a facial, manicure or pedicure at a local beauty salon. Alternatively, if her life is often stressful or hectic, a spa treatment such as a back massage may be more appropriate. If you are not sure which type of treatment she may prefer, buy her a day pass at a local spa that allows her to choose what she would like. Cook her meal when she returns from her spa day and relax by watching a movie together at home.
Surprise your girlfriend with a road trip. Arrange a trip to a destination you would like to visit and let her guess where you are going on the journey. Create a CD of her favourite music or songs that have a significant meaning in your relationship. Take along a picnic to enjoy if the place you are visiting has beautiful parks or scenery. If you are visiting a bustling city, make reservations at a restaurant ahead of your visit.
Create a book of homemade coupons that your girlfriend can cash in at any time. Think about what she would really enjoy or would make her life easier. Your coupons could include the gift of a romantic meal, breakfast in bed, control of the television remote control for the night or a date night. Make your coupons from card stock and bind them together with ribbon.
Chocolates, cupcakes or brownies can all be beautifully decorated to make a sweet birthday gift. Order a batch of cupcakes and have them customised to include a personal message on the frosting. If your girlfriend is working on her birthday, arrange for the cupcakes to be delivered to her office to wish her happy birthday in front of her colleagues. Alternatively, bake the cupcakes or brownies yourself and deliver them in person on her lunch break.
