Gifts For Girlfriend presents For

Show how much she means to you with a token of your appreciation. Here are some original ideas that may give you some much-needed inspiration.

A Token of Your Love

Vouchers are available for every kind of item; books clothes, shoes or holidays. They are a functional present and one that will definitely be appreciated. However, they are not original and you can definitely be more inventive.

What is her favourite magazine? If you know, get her a year’s subscription to it. Is she a film fanatic? If so, subscribe, on her behalf, to a DVD rental club and make sure that she never misses out on those new releases starring her favourite actors. These are all still voucher-based presents but they are slightly less predictable than the traditional versions and are more specifically tailored to her needs.

Box it up

Give her a goody bag containing more than one present. The presentation of multiple presents to open will make her very happy!

Theme it. Think about her likes and dislikes and put some thought into the purchases. Does she struggle with a daily commute? If the answer is yes, get her a commuting themed gift box of goodies. An MP3 player loaded with some new albums by her favourite artists, a book token and a portable coffee cup will make her very happy and will make her life easier. Is she is dire need of a spa treat? Purchase lots of beauty products, a spa voucher and a new dressing gown, perfect for lounging in.

Because She’s Worth it

Anyone can buy a perfume or a cosmetic item off the shelf. The chances are that she will love that new bottle of eau de parfum. However, it is possible to go the extra mile and really indulge her with a truly one-off gift to remember.

These days bespoke is the name of the game. Perfumers and make-up brands are letting you take the driving seat and make up your own perfect products. The beauty of this service is that you create something that only you will ever have. Company’s like Miller Harris and Cosmetics a la Carte offer a bespoke service. All you have to do is take her along to their shops and let her choose the ingredients. The end result is a unique and special gift that she will cherish.

Dream Date

If you have been going out with your girlfriend for a while, it may be that trips out to special restaurants or bars are nothing but a distant memory. Get the magic back and treat her to a dream date.

Think about what she would like to do and where she would like to go. Does she pine to go to the hottest celebrity nightspots? If she does, get on the list, tell her to dress up and surprise her on the night! If she loves live music, reserve a table and take her to somewhere like Ronnie Scott’s or The Jazz Café for a real treat. Add a night at a hotel into the mix and you have an impressive dream date!

Make Dreams Come True

Sometimes it’s not the material items that make the biggest impact. Sometimes it’s the thought behind a gift that will shock, surprise and delight.

Its time to wrack your brains and remember all those remarks once made about places she would love to visit or courses she would love to take up. Everyone has dreams – all you have to do is find out what hers are.

It might be that she has always wanted to learn a language. In that case get her a language set to start her off and a future place in a local language class. If she is a keen creative writer and has always wanted to write a screenplay, get her the expensive screenplay software for her computer so that she can make it happen. Not only do these types of presents show thought but they also show to her that you believe in her and her talents. Such belief just cannot fail to boost her confidence.

Buying a gift for your girlfriend doesn’t have to involve diamonds and champagne. You can be much more original than that. We hope that we have given you some ideas here. Just remember to try and make whatever gift you get personal to your girlfriend. Whether it’s big or small, expensive or cheap, if it means something to her and her dreams she will love it!
