Does the special lady in your life have a birthday coming up? It's understandable if you're not sure what to get her. Jewelry can sometimes feel like a cop-out, and maybe you've put things off a little too long and find yourself a bit short on time.
Whatever the case may be, don't fret! You'd be surprised at how much you can do for your lady in a short time without breaking the bank. If you're not sure where to begin, here are some great ideas for birthday gifts that will have your sweetheart swooning from delight.
Above all, birthdays are a time for indulgence, and you can be sure that your lady knows this. What better time to show up at her door with a pile of chocolate strawberries for the two of you to share? Plop yourselves down on the couch with one of your favorite movies and dig in. If she's got a bit more of a serious sweet tooth, you can choose to pick up a delicious cake. There are few culinary pleasures more decadent than sinking your teeth into a delightful piece of rich cheesecake. Just make sure it's her favorite flavor!
There's nothing wrong with going for the classic option of flowers. A bouquet of birthday roses will probably fit the bill, and she'll be more than happy to take them off of your hands when you show up at her door. Flowers may not be the fastest way to a woman's heart, but they're up there. If she's not the biggest fan of roses, plenty of other floral options are available to you. Whether it's orchids, lilies or tulips, just demonstrating that you're thinking of your lady can go a long way toward making her birthday a special one.
Remember, it's the thought that counts! Pay attention to what your sweetheart enjoys and do your best to cater your gift around that. If she's more active, take her for a long bike ride. If she'd rather stay in and watch her favorite television show, pick up a DVD box set of that program. You'd be surprised at what you're able to come up with when you put your mind to it. As long as you show how much you care, the rest will fall into place on its own.
Ladies, what's the most memorable gift you've received for your birthday?
