If you’re like the most of us, planning ahead for birthdays might not be your thing. But what to do if you realize that your girlfriends’ birthday is in a couple of days and you don’t have anything for her?
Well, don’t panic, there’s still time.
There are a few things you can get her that she’ll enjoy and thank you for. You just have to think about what she’d like and then even a simple gift can feel personal and caring.
Yes, this one’s obvious.
But women do love jewelry and you can’t go wrong with this one. Just stick to the classics and don’t try to get her anything extraordinary, because, let’s face it, you might not be the best expert in this field.
The one drawback can be that quality jewelry is expensive, but when you think about it, that probably isn’t the main concern when you’re thinking about a loved one.
- Getaways (The Gift of Time Together)
Imagine taking her away to somewhere romantic, where you two can relax, enjoy each other’s company and get away from your everyday troubles. Pretty nice, right?
Well, she’ll think so too – spending time together is one of the best things you can get a loved one, because at the end of the day, everything else is just things, and the only really important thing is the time you spend with each other.
- Gift Certificates
A quick solution to your gift dilemma would be to simply get her a gift card. This may seem impersonal, but if you take the time to find something that she’ll really enjoy, you can be sure she won’t mind that it’s not a hand-made gift.
Just think about what she likes or would like to do, perhaps something that would reflect with her on a personal level.
- Spa Services
You can’t go wrong simply getting your girl a day in the Spa center. Every girl likes to relax, while taking care of herself– this gift shows that you want her to feel pretty and confident, which women usually do after all those beauty procedures.
Just, as always, remember to add a personal touch – whether it would be a personal card (hand written, of course!) or something else, show here that this is just for her, from you.
- A Special Date
If you just don’t know what to get her and want to make her really happy – make her birthday unforgettable.
Plan the whole day together – it could be as simple as a homemade romantic candlelight dinner, or, if you’re up to it, you could take her on a hot air balloon ride and then take her to a restaurant with a view.
These are just a few examples, only you can truly know how to make this day special for her, so figure it out and get to planning!
It’s probably best to start thinking about a gift for your girl a few months back – that way you can really leave a lasting memory, but sometimes that just isn’t an option.
When that happens, you can still make this day special, you just have to stay positive and remember, that even simpler gifts can still mean a world, if they are given with love.
