Birthday Gift Ideas for Every Girl in Your Life


Shopping for girls can be a lot of fun because there are choices for every type of gal out there. Or, it can be a little stressful when the girl you know already seems to have it all. One thing is for sure though: girls love gifts. As long as you put some thought into it, then you’ll be good to go.


There are women that love all things beauty, and so a cute bag full of beauty products would be a dream come true. Or, maybe you know a book lover who is always reading the next best seller. A gift card to a bookstore or an anniversary edition of one of the classics can be a great idea for a present. The point is to match the gift to the person you’re getting it for. Flowers are a beautiful option if you are unsure of what to buy. But, if you’re stuck trying to decide a birthday gift for the girl in your life, here is a list of options to get you started:

● For the music lover, tickets to a live musical artist or a music documentary about a favorite artist are a couple of options for gifts she might like and can easily be adjusted to fit your budget.

● For the film enthusiast, a movie-themed gift basket filled with microwave popcorn packets, movie-sized candy, and theater tickets is a fun, thoughtful gift. Dinner and a movie also never gets old. Put a fun spin on it and make it a theme by having your restaurant selection match the type of movie you’re seeing.

● For the life of the party, bring her a party in a bouquet of balloons accompanied with miniature champagne bottles, wines-to-go, confetti, and maybe a few packets of Advil for afterwards. Plan a night out on the town or a game night in complete with cocktails.

● For the girl on the go, get her a travel mug or water bottle so she can stay caffeinated or hydrated all day long. A cross-body bag is a nice gift for someone who is stylish, but wants to keep her hands free.

● For the gym goer, buy her a new workout outfit or a gift certificate to a local yoga studio or spin center. Another idea is to try a new class together and then go out for birthday smoothies to celebrate.

● For any gal, a day of pampering is a good choice. Depending on her preference, schedule a massage, facial, pedicure, or all of the above. Spa days are rare and it’s nice to be treated unexpectedly. The planned relaxation will be much appreciated.

Birthdays are a time of celebration and paying attention to what will make the guest of honor feel special. Write down a list of five things the girl in your life likes and start building a birthday gift list from there. Decide on a budget and how much money you’d like to spend.

If you’re on a tight budget, then a cupcake with a candle is still a simple, sweet gesture. If you feel like splurging on sweet treats, there are many good options for that as well. Use your creativity and listen to hear if she drops any hints of what she might like. Take a road trip together. Try a new restaurant. Plan a weekend getaway. Schedule a small dinner party with a few close friends and loved ones.

A unique gift idea that many people like to opt for is not necessarily a physical gift, but rather a fun experience. Take in a sporting event together. Go on a nature hike to a beautiful location. Visit a psychic for fun and see what the future holds. Or, if she is the adventurous type, plan a hot air balloon ride, a skydiving adventure, or spend an afternoon paragliding.

Every type of gift can be adjusted to fit any budget and every kind of gal. When it comes to birthdays, it really is the thought that counts, so make sure that your efforts are sincere. Get started on the birthday list for the girl in your life and see how much she appreciates your gift giving skills.

  2. I love the idea of giving books instead of cards at baby showers. I also give books to kids as gifts other times of the year like Christmas and birthdays. My daughter loves getting new books.
