Planning a birthday bash for your girlfriend is a way to not only show you care but do something fun that puts her in the spotlight. From getting her a great gift to throwing her a cool party, pull out all the stops when it comes to making sure you plan the best birthday for her.

Well Wishes

Get all of her friends and family in on the action by telling them to salute her for the big day. Plan ahead to have dozens of them write a happy birthday message on a sticky note in different colours. Place each of the sticky notes in a trail around her place from the bathroom to her car so that when she wakes up she sees well wishes throughout her morning.


Create preliminary activities throughout the day to help her celebrate. Prepare breakfast for her with a birthday card. Give her plenty of compliments and take the time to really excite her before the main event. Have lunch delivered to her while she's at work or in class accompanied with a note and a playlist of some of her favourite tunes. This will help keep her in a great mood throughout the day.

Birthday Party

Arrange a surprise birthday party for dinner. For an over-the-top beginning, give her an hour or two to get freshened up and in party attire. Let her know that you've requested a limousine to pick her up from home and take her out for a night on the town. Have family and friends meet at her favourite restaurant. Escort her into a reserved room where everyone can surprise her. If her birthday is during the week this will be an ideal way for her to celebrate her big day on the actual day of her birthday and then follow-up with a more casual celebration on the weekend. Order a custom cake from a professional baker who can design a cake that matches her interests like a topsy-turvy cake in hot pink and zebra layers or in the shape of a handbag.

Birthday Gift

If she's been asking or needing something for a while now, like a new laptop, gift token for a shoe shopping spree or full body spa appointment, plan in advance to save for the very special gift. Throughout the day's events give her small trinkets that are not too costly, such as new fitness apparel or accessories for her car. Accompany her big surprise bash with the big gift that she would never expect.
