Something that reflects her interests. And I hope you know her better than strangers on the internet.

What does she like?

(Does she want to skydive? Or see a particular concert? Or you?)

If you decide to do this, you still should give her something a bit more personal and romantic. If the relationship is getting serious, anyway.

A trip to Vegas

How about 21 of something she likes?

Whatever you do, don’t go overboard and set the bar so high you can’t keep up.

What will you do next year after you’ve been dating a year? Disneyland? Cancun?
Keep it simple and heartfelt.

Actually, I really like @worriedguy‘s advice.

A car. Or a basket full of candy.

Get a gift certificate for an afternoon at the Spa.
Nails, massage and herbal tea.

I agree with @ragingloli and @DarlingRhadamanthus. My SO knows that if he wants to give me a gift, skip the flowers. “Sweetheart, I had the oil changed in your car” is much more romantic to me.

Will you tell us what she likes? Is she a romantic? Is she living with her parents or out on her own? Details please!

Does she have hobbies? Interests?

Disneyland/world tickets! There’s no booze there though.

I like @Austinlad‘s idea of 21 of something she likes. Because you haven’t been dating too long, I wouldn’t spend too much money (skydiving can be pricey, especially for 2—maybe save that for a future anniversary). Maybe take her to dinner and get her 21 of her favorite flowers, and something she has mentioned wanting or needing. My ex got me stuff I had mentioned needing (like a pyrex dish, certain tank tops, and for some reason jeans), which was very thoughtful because it showed he listened (plus, you won’t have to worry about her not liking it).

I’m not sure the gift is as important as spending time with her and making her feel special. Your gift should reflect what you know about your gf.

If she likes concert tickets, concert tickets might be a good birthday gift but there are less inexpensive options. During the summer, there are many festivals and events that also include music, beer, and cultural themes. Taking her to one might be a nice surprise.

maybe a beer or the month subscription?

Get her a novelty booze thing, like Hot Sex or something. Then give her hot sex.

Roses and dinner before you go out partying.

How about an evening harbor excursion, you can find details here Or how about dinner at Mr. A’s. If that’s a little too pricey, you can just have dessert and champagne. Check it out here
