Whether you've been dating your girlfriend for six weeks or six months, that first birthday gift you buy her sets the tone for all of the gifts to come. You don't have to spend a lot of money to get her something romantic and unexpected. Simply consider her interests and make sure your gift comes from the heart. She'll love just about anything you get her if she knows you put careful thought into her birthday gift.

Commemorative Gifts

What was the first movie that you and your girlfriend watched together? What book did you discuss at length when you first went out for coffee? What was the first concert or CD that you bonded over? Buy your girlfriend a gift that commemorates a significant moment in your relationship. Tell her why you chose this gift and what it means to you.

Future-Based Gifts

If you can see yourself being with your girlfriend beyond the next few dates, buy her something to tell her that you see her as part of your future. Think theatre, opera or concert tickets for an event that will occur within the next two or three months. You could even book a weekend getaway and wrap up aeroplane tickets or a copy of a hotel reservation. Your girlfriend will appreciate knowing that she is a part of your future plans.

Fulfilling a Dream

Has your girlfriend mentioned that she's wanted to try something new, such as skydiving, golf lessons or whitewater rafting? Make it happen for her. Better yet, make yourself a part of it, too. Not only will you fulfil a dream for her, but you'll also impress her with your attention to detail. You'll show that you were actually listening when she mentioned her aspirations to you.

Gift Cards

Because some women consider a gift card too impersonal, it should be your last resort only if you cannot think of anything else to get her. Just make sure to get one that you know she'll appreciate, such as a gift card to her favourite retailer, to a spa where she can get pampered, or for horseback riding or some other experience that you can enjoy together. Include a handwritten card expressing your feelings for her to make the gift more personal.
