Birthday ideas can become difficult to come up with for your girlfriend, whether she's your romantic interest or best female friend. Honour her by celebrating the day in a special way she'll remember for years to come. Ideas should come from the heart and from your knowledge about your girlfriend's interests.

Out on the Town

Take your girlfriend to her favourite restaurant to celebrate her birthday. Invite friends and family to join you there for a pleasant surprise. After the restaurant, consider going to the theatre to take in an opera or Broadway show. In smaller communities, community theatres can offer an exciting way for theatre lovers to experience live plays and skits. If your girlfriend isn't into theatre or musicals, consider taking her to a museum that may suit her taste, such as an art or history museum. Try something new and exciting, such as a riverboat dinner cruise or a scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt can involve finding gifts spread among her favourite places. Lead her to her favourite ice cream spot for a sundae or to a spa for a facial and manicure. Enlist the help of friends and family to make sure the day goes as planned.

Movie Night

Cuddle up at home for a movie night. Purchase, or rent, her favourite flicks and celebrate the night, or even the entire day, around the television. Arrange for a homemade dinner featuring her favourite foods and use food that relates to the movies when possible. Consider the location of one of her favourite movies and use that as inspiration for the food. Each movie can bring with it a new treat. For romantic movies, chocolate-covered strawberries can add a nice touch. For comedic movies, fun drinks such as Margaritas and traditional movie candy and popcorn will fit the bill.

Outdoor Adventures

Outdoor adventures can be both romantic and adventurous. Canoe rides can provide the perfect escape for couples and friends. Go with a group or by yourself. Pack a picnic and stop along the riverbank for a private lunch or snack. Camp out under the stars. As part of her birthday gift, provide her with a book on constellations and star gazing in the area. Of course, hiking or bicycling along well-marked, yet secluded, trails can allow for conversation and the perfect opportunity for a romantic picnic. Other outdoor options include a day at the beach, a visit to an amusement park or an adventure on the slopes.
