When brainstorming birthday gift ideas for your girlfriend, it can be difficult to know where to begin. However, a girlfriend's birthday does not need to be a daunting occasion. Rather than navigating aimlessly through crammed department stores, think creatively about her interests and personality. Give her a thoughtful, personalised present that shows her how important she is to you.

Give your girlfriend the opportunity to see her favourite musician, sports team, theatre production or comedian by getting her event tickets for her birthday. Before purchasing the tickets, discretely make sure she does not already have an activity booked on the date of the event. Give her two tickets so she can take you or a friend with her to the event. Event tickets give her something to look forward to after her birthday celebrations have ended.
Treat your girlfriend to relaxation and pampering. Give her a gift token for a spa treatment such as a massage, facial, manicure or pedicure. If your budget can't accommodate expensive spa treatments, create a coupon book of spa treatments that you can perform yourself or give her a selection of beauty products that allow her to pamper herself. For the coupon book, write phrases such as "Good For One Massage" or "Good For One Foot Scrub" on each coupon and let her know she can cash in the coupons at her leisure. Pampering gifts will show your girlfriend that you appreciate her hard work and think she deserves some TLC.
Books, Subscriptions and eBook Readers
For girlfriends who enjoy reading, there are several reading-related gift options that can be given with her personality in mind. For example, if you know your girlfriend has a particular area of interest, such as gardening or basketball, give her a book on that topic. Or, if you know your girlfriend likes a particular magazine, buy her a subscription to that magazine so she can enjoy it throughout the year. If your girlfriend enjoys reading in general, consider giving her an eBook reader such as the Kindle, the Nook or the Samsung Papyrus.
Homemade Birthday Cake
Show your girlfriend that you care about her by baking her a birthday cake yourself. Bake her favourite type of cake and decorate it to fit her personality. For example, if she is an avid soccer fan, create a soccer ball on top of the cake out of icing or black liquorice. Baking her a homemade cake, rather than purchasing one from a store, will show her that she's special to you and worth the effort. Baking a cake works well as a gift if your relationship is quite new, as it is it thoughtful but not over the top.
