When getting a birthday card for your girlfriend, you want to get something that is meaningful and will make her feel special. To do this, you need to take a little extra time and effort in making it a fantastic card. If you are short on time or creativity, you can always run to the store and get a pre-made card, but do your best to go the extra mile, she will love it.


Make her a birthday card. With scrapbooking being so popular it is very easy to find materials to make an extra-special birthday card. Include a picture of you two and a heartfelt, handwritten note. You can make it in the shape of a heart, party hat or a birthday cake, for example. Use construction paper to create a 3D card. You can also make it a pop-up card by cutting a small part in the crease and inverting the folding direction so it pops out when opened.

Mirror Card

Give her a mirror and write your message on it in dry-erase marker which will rub off. Or you can write it in paint or permanent marker if you want it to stay on. Write something romantic like “Mirror mirror on the wall, reveal the most beautiful woman of all.” Then on the bottom write something like “Happy Birthday Gorgeous.”


Send her an e-card birthday card. This is a way to show her that you care about her and the environment. E-cards are sent to e-mail boxes so they help cut down on paper use and postage. They come in many designs and give you a good amount of freedom in designing them so take advantage of it. Also, many of them are free, which means you can spend more money on her gift.

Vintage Card

Create a vintage looking birthday card. Use handmade paper and an ink pen to write a special note to her. You can even copy an old poem, like a Shakespearean sonnet or one of her favourite poems. Writing the lyrics to a song works as well. This makes it look like an older, vintage love letter. Send it to her in the mail so that she receives it on her birthday or before, but make sure it isn't late.
