Shopping for a gift for your girlfriend can be difficult, especially if you are in a new relationship. You want to give her something that expresses how you feel about her, but you might not have the money to buy an extravagant gift. Fortunately, even simple gift ideas can be thoughtful gifts that bring a smile to your girlfriend's face. Consider her interests when choosing your gift---the more personalised you make the gift, the better.

Spa Gift Basket

Every girl loves to get pampered from time to time, but she might not have the money to spend a lot of time at the spa. Bring the relaxation of the spa to your girlfriend with a spa gift basket. Fill a massaging foot bath, which you use as your "basket," with aromatherapy candles, bubble bath, body gels, lotions and a nail polish in her favourite shade. Burn a CD featuring her favourite relaxing music, which she can listen to as she pampers herself at home. Your girlfriend will appreciate your thoughtfulness and feel rejuvenated after enjoying this gift.

Handmade Jewelry

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, but this stone doesn't work for those with a modest budget. However, many one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces are available that will make your girlfriend smile. Check out local craft fairs or craft websites that feature homemade jewellery to find a piece that suits your girlfriend. If she has a favourite colour, look for a stone in that colour for your jewellery inspiration. You can choose from chandelier earrings to statement necklaces or bracelets for this original gift. Having a one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery will make your girlfriend feel special.

Experience Gift

You don't have to rely on tangible gifts to give your girlfriend. Sure, she'll love something she can take home, but she will equally appreciate an experience gift that allows her to spend time with you. If her favourite musical artist is coming into town, get her tickets. Set up a picnic in the park or on the beach for a romantic day all about her. Surprise her after work with a romantic dinner cooked by you---throw white linens over the table, light some candles and top the table with a bouquet of her favourite flowers for a romantic night in.
