If you have a girlfriend whose birthday is coming up, you will certainly want to make her happy by giving her a nice gift. While she would likely be pleased with anything that illustrates how much you care, you might want to go the extra mile and give her something that will truly "wow" her. While some of the more extravagant birthday gifts may not be within your price range, you might be surprised by how affordable some surprise gift ideas can be.

Helicopter Tour

Take your girlfriend on a helicopter tour. Many companies in metropolitan areas offer helicopter rides over the city, and sipping champagne while hovering above the city skyline can create an experience that is both romantic and moving. A typical helicopter tour might last from 30 to 60 minutes and is supervised by a licensed pilot.


A skydiving trip is a tremendous change of pace compared to the traditional "dinner and a movie" date, and may even be a little frightening if you have never been skydiving before. Skydiving is a thrill and may result in a new bond formed between the two of you. After completing a safety class, beginners skydive strapped to their instructor, who handles pulling the rip cord for the parachute at the correct time so you can concentrate on the unbelievable view.

Evening Cruise

Take your girlfriend on an evening cruise on the nearest lake or ocean. You can find a cruise designed for couples, offering an extravagant dinner, black tie fashion and romantic music, or you could go on a gambling cruise if you are in the mood for something more wild. A gambling cruise is a full-service casino on a boat, which goes out into international waters before the fun commences.

Broadway Musical

Watch online for inexpensive airfares to New York City, and surprise your girlfriend with a day trip to see a Broadway musical. Return home well-rested after a wonderful evening in a high-end hotel. It is sometimes difficult to get tickets for the hottest Broadway shows and this is a gift that will surely leave your girlfriend feeling swept off her feet.

Journey on Rails

While high-end rail lines are largely a thing of the past in the United States, you can still find such companies in Europe. One example is the Orient Express, providing extremely luxurious train journeys across destinations in Italy, France, Austria and other nations with prices to match. If price is no object, you could hardly find a more extravagant gift with which to surprise your girlfriend.
