Giving your girlfriend the perfect gift for her birthday can be a bit of a challenge, especially if she has lots of hobbies or interests. However, you can give her a present she won't soon forget by choosing items that will help her take time from a hectic schedule or recall fond memories to make her birthday special.
If your girlfriend loves chocolate, you can present her with birthday gifts that feature her favourite sweet treat. For instance, you can set up a mini chocolate fountain in her house, and give her a tray filled with the fruits she likes best to use for dipping; a pot of chocolate fondue with her favourite desserts and fruits is a great gift as well. If you know she'd appreciate a home-cooked present, bake her a batch of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in decorative paper of her favourite shade, along with a card wishing her the best birthday ever. You can also put together a gift basket for her, featuring all the chocolate foods you know she'd enjoy, such as brownies, gourmet chocolate bars and chocolate truffles.
Personalise your girlfriend's birthday present by giving her a monogrammed towel or linen set. Choose fabrics in the colours she'd use to decorate the bathroom or bedroom, and trim the sheets or towels with her favourite metallic thread (silver, gold, or bronze). You can also buy her a monogrammed throw blanket in an eye-catching pattern like argyle or polka dots that she can use when the two of you have movie night at home. If your sweetie loves visiting the beach or going shopping, give her a large fabric bag with her initials on the front filled with some of her favourite items such an initialled beach towel and flip flops. And the fragrance she wears most often makes a thoughtful birthday gift.
You can give your girlfriend a jewellery piece that features her birthstone for a gift she'll always treasure. For instance, if she has a May birthday, an emerald brooch plated in gold is an elegant present; if her birthday is in July, a ruby ring or necklace with a ruby pendant is fitting. It's also a good idea to give her a piece of jewellery that she's had her eye on for a while; if you notice that she gushes over a pair of earrings each time the two of you pass by a certain jewellery store, her birthday is the right time to present her with them.
Shoes and Accessories
If your girlfriend is a shoe fanatic, take a glance in her closet to see which types of shoes she likes best. Be sure to check her shoes to get her correct size, and ask her female relatives or friends for a little advice on how to choose the perfect pair. If she has a job where she has to dress up each day, a pair of black or grey heels by her favourite designer is a fitting gift. If she's an outdoors girl, quality tennis or hiking shoes will make a welcomed gift. A birthday gift of accessories is also a wonderful way to say 'happy birthday' to a fashionable girlfriend; belts and scarves in her favourite colours or patterns can be presented with the shoes you select, or you can give her shoes with a coordinating hat and handbag.
