Hi there, I must admit that I'm the worst person when it comes to giving gifts. I have no clue about it. Ive been with my girl for about 6-7 months now. Its her birthday next week. I would like to gift her something. But have got no idea. Could you guys suggest some gifts or special ideas or anything for that matter! What gift ideas do you'll have?

Well, if you can afford it, jewelry is the nicest thing that a woman can have. It doesn't have to be super expensive, maybe buy her a pair of earrings or a necklace. You can also give her flowers, and I think a nice dinner would also be nice. You can have dinner in a fancy restaurant or you can cook something for her. Believe me hat all your efforts will be much appreciated. My husband never gave me flowers, not even when we were dating. But he gave me a couple of jewelries already, so I just let it pass, lol

First of all you have to know what she really wants, what are her hobbies, what might make her swoon. What we could give you here are just generic ideas, but it would be best to give her something that she specifically like. But to help you with your dilemma, here are a few ideas. Most girls love flowers, a handwritten birthday car, and chocolates to come with it. You could take her out on a dinner and give her those. If she likes accessories, you can give her a bracelet with an engraved initial of your name and her name on it. If she's into fashion, then scarves would do, a wallet, a purse, etc. Perfume or cologne would do too. Just don't forget to tell her how much you care about her and how important she is to you. And if she really is that important to you, you would go out of your way to find out what she really wants on her birthday. Sometimes it's not material things that could make someone really happy. Goodluck!

Effort! Try making an old school love letter or if you know basic baking try to bake cupcakes for her. We girls never forget the effort people shows us. She would probably remember and treasure that moment forever. Good luck with this! :)

stuff animals would do but if you really want it to make very special... try to sing for her... like you are a rockstar. do it outside her window with guitar and all. tell her what you really feel through the song. but just be careful that the neighbors won't kill you couse you disturb them. but if you want it to be safe... just ask around... ask some friends of her about things that she likes or needs... well if you ask me i would give my boyfriend a cellphone couse he lost his and he really need it. and if you ask me what would i want for my birthday... an a-mount 55-200mm lens that would top my list.

Hi, first you should know what does she like and does not like. Well if you don't know an affordable gift to buy is a cute stuff toy. if you have some cash in your pocket you could also try to give her some jewelry like a bracelet or a necklace. If you really don't have any extra money to spend you could just make a gift for her like a letter, or a card or anything that you can do, I think its more sweet when you will just make a gift for her.

It is always hard to know what to buy for a girlfriend the first birthday that you're together. I don't think you should buy her too much, but something like a necklace would be a good idea as it would show to her that you like her and that you see a future together with her. Things like chocolate would also go down well, as well as a bottle of perfume or something like that. You shouldn't get into the habit of spending too much on her, as you would then have to carry on with that in the future and you might not be able to afford to do so anymore which would be a bad thing.

When you were together with your girlfriend,at least you have ask her what she likes most.From that point of view you can have a choice to pick what gift is appropriate to give for her birthday.To give her a gold necklace,or a gold earrings, or a gold bracelet,it is up for your choice.Then,bring her to a classy restaurant,and let her be serenaded by a favorite song.You can have other choices,like: by visiting her at her house--you can bring a bouquet of flowers,a gift of wrist watch especially wrapped for the occasion,then if they are having some party you can join her family and talk something good and if possible ask for some privacy,that is when you gave her the wrist watch.Remember this that the occasion is a birthday of your love,it must be blended with class to make her love you more than you think she was worth your love.
