Diamond Earrings

I believe diamond earrings are a fabulous gift for your girlfriend. Even if you haven't been dating for a long time, I think that as long as you are an exclusive, committed couple, giving jewelry to your girlfriend is a sweet idea. Don't worry if you can only afford small diamond studs for her birthday. I still have the very first pair of earrings my husband gave me when we were dating 20 years ago. I wouldn't trade them for anything. Diamond studs go with virtually any outfit, They're timeless. They'll never go out of style. That's what makes them such a desirable gift to give a woman!

Simple diamond stud earrings don't have to be huge in order to be appreciated as a birthday gift. If your budget is tight, choose sterling silver over 14K gold.

Something You Made Yourself

This gift idea for your girlfriend will require some advanced preparation but the look on your girlfriend's face when she opens her homemade gift will be worth it. From homemade chocolates to romantic body scrubs to keepsake reminders of why you lover her so much---there are endless creative gifts you can make all by yourself. If you don't know what to make or how to get started, check of the video below of some cute and romantic gifts you can make for your girlfriend's special day!

Handmade Birthday Gift Ideas:

  • Candy bouquet

  • Gourmet dinner
  • Gift basket of her favorite foods hand-picked by you

  • Three dozen assorted homemade, hand-decorated cookies in a charming tin
  • Poetry or song lyrics you composed just for her birthday

Carving a miniature clay figurine in the shape of your pet name (i.e. Angel dove) for your girlfriend is a sweet gift to give her.

Something That Shows You've Been Listening

Do you remember that time your girlfriend once told you what her favorite childhood board game was? Or how about that night she shared told you about her fear of getting stranded if her car breaks down? If you have been truly listening to the little stories and secrets your girlfriend has been sharing with you, coming up with a good gift idea for her birthday shouldn't be hard. For instance, you could try finding her favorite childhood game on eBay or in an antiques or collectibles shop. Or, if you want to help her overcome her fear of getting stranded by a car breakdown, you could get her a tune-up at the local garage, an emergency roadside kit, and a solar power source for her cell phone.

Remember when she told you about her favorite board game from her childhood? Find a vintage edition of her favorite toy and wrap that up for her birthday

    Interesting gift suggestions for girls!

    I always believed that perfumes, flowers , jewellery and chocolates are the most desirable gifts any girl would love to have. They are even now but nowadays the girls love to be gifted with electronic items as well such as mobile phones , iPad and others.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful gift ideas!
