birth­day gifts

What to give a girl for her birthday?

Giv­ing a gift to a woman you know is a very pleas­ant moment. Hov­er, choos­ing the right present is a lit­tle more dif­fi­cult.

You can make some­thing beau­ti­ful and use­ful with your own hands. The main thing is a good idea, not mon­ey spent. You can spend much more time and ener­gy on such a gift.

A gift must be expect­ed to sat­is­fy the recip­i­ent. The basic rule is to give what a woman wants to receive, not what she wants to give. In order to choose the right gifts, you need to ask the wom­an’s pref­er­ences 3 or more days before her birth­day.

Top Useful Presents

Crockery or household appliances (e.g. toaster, blender, iron)

If a woman dreams of a mix­er, then she should not receive it as a gift from her hus­band or son, because these devices will work for the whole fam­i­ly, and not just for the birth­day girl. Hov­er, for a beloved girl (not a fam­i­ly one), such things will be very use­ful.

In addi­tion, an excep­tion may be, for exam­ple, a hair straight­en­er, because in fact it is a gift that will only be used by the recip­i­ent.

An epi­la­tor can also be hand­ed over, but only upon explic­it request.

funny items

Diplo­mas, cer­tifi­cates, mugs with fun­ny inscrip­tions, cool things, T‑shirts with inter­est­ing phras­es.


Engraved crys­tals, sil­ver ros­es, plush toys, crys­tal vas­es for a girl, which would dec­o­rate a mod­ern style home.


Per­fumes are a good gift, but only if the woman says what she would like to receive. Per­haps if she con­stant­ly uses the same prod­uct, you can qui­et­ly check if the bot­tle is low and buy a new one. Per­fumes are often found in per­fume lines togeth­er with oth­er cos­met­ics, such as bath lotions, soaps, hair gels. A set with wom­en’s per­fume will be a good gift.

Creams and masks can put you in an awk­ward posi­tion. An anti-wrin­kle cream may not be the way to go, even if a woman uses it every day. Some­times they can cause aller­gies.

You should try not to buy ready-made kits (soap, deodor­ant, sham­poo, pearl bath) from pop­u­lar brands (Nivea, Dove, Fa), as this is a hack­neyed top­ic. Besides, giv­ing deodor­ant as a gift is a lit­tle tact­less.

Bath lotions, bath salts, mois­tur­iz­ing oils, scrubs, hair con­di­tion­ers should be giv­en only when a per­son knows for sure that a woman likes to exper­i­ment. In this case, you need to look for brands that pro­duce cos­met­ics from nat­ur­al ingre­di­ents with deli­cious fla­vors (fruit, choco­late, cof­fee, cin­na­mon).

They are often referred to as SPAs.

If a woman likes to take care of her hair, it is worth buy­ing pro­fes­sion­al hair cos­met­ics.

An inter­est­ing idea can also be a set of high-qual­i­ty cos­met­ics: pow­der, brush­es, shad­ows and lip­stick.

If a per­son is seri­ous about gifts, then you can look at some wom­en’s sites. Per­haps they will rec­om­mend some­thing inter­est­ing.


This option is only suit­able if the per­son knows the exact size and pro­vid­ed that the woman does not have a large bust or overight, since with all this bras are dif­fi­cult to find.

Under­ar should be not only sexy, but also prac­ti­cal. You should not pro­ceed only from your fan­tasies in this pur­chase — you need to take into account the inter­ests of the girl.

If a woman does not ar thongs, then you should not buy them.

You can, of course, buy erot­ic under­ar if a man knows that a woman will like it. Let her open this gift only in his pres­ence.

The pur­chase of cor­rec­tive under­ar is also exclud­ed.


A girl’s best friend is dia­monds.

When buy­ing pre­cious met­als, first of all, you need to check which met­al a woman ars the most. Then you need to remem­ber which mod­els she prefers: mono‑, with stones, in mod­ern design, clas­sic or retro. You can dis­creet­ly pho­to­graph her jel­ry mod­els and con­sult with a jel­er or sell­er.

Arti­fi­cial jel­ry is pos­si­ble, but here you need to know exact­ly what the girl likes. For this rea­son, it is advis­able to vis­it shops with her and care­ful­ly observe what she takes in her hands and what she pays atten­tion to.

When buy­ing ear­rings, make sure that your ears are pierced.


Cloth­ing will fit if you choose it cor­rect­ly.

A sater or blouse usu­al­ly has to be bought, as it is a neces­si­ty, but not a gift. Hov­er, if she dreams of a par­tic­u­lar blouse from an expen­sive bou­tique of a cer­tain size and spares mon­ey for it, then this will be a top ten shot.

Bags, scarves are also a gift that a woman should choose for her­self.

Decorative items for home

On the forums in the inte­ri­or sec­tion, many women exchange com­ments about lamps, dish­es or paint­ings (you can give it to the artist).

Hobby related items

Gar­den items (e.g. large stain­less steel balls, foun­tain), hand­i­crafts, ten­nis rack­ets and oth­er items. Items for danc­ing.

  • glue gun;
  • mini engrav­ing machine on wood, glass;
  • many women like to take pic­tures — then you may need option­al lens, flash or tri­pod;
  • maybe the woman got a job — then a good choice would be an expen­sive pen, a leather brief­case, a lap­top bag, a note­book, a cal­en­dar in a leather case;
  • cof­fee lover will appre­ci­ate cap­puc­ci­no mak­er;
  • a girl who loves tech­ni­cal inno­va­tions will sure­ly be hap­py to receive new phone or tablet;
  • for those who love to draw - a set of pen­cils of any thick­ness, dry pas­tel, spe­cial sets for draw­ing, easels, sleep­ers, a set of brush­es.

If a young man is sure that she likes to exper­i­ment in the kitchen, then the orig­i­nal idea would be:

  • kitchen ther­mome­ter, scales;
  • a set of unusu­al spices — garam masala, juniper, car­damom, saf­fron, lemon­grass, star anise, gar­lic, bear gar­lic, sumac, fenu­greek, vanil­la sticks, dried toma­toes, cumin;
  • sauces, oys­ter, fish, rice vine­gar, bal­sam­ic vine­gar, fla­vored oils, or unusu­al seeds (reeds, lin­seed, pump­kin).

What to give for the birth of a girl?

What flors can be given?

Flors are an obvi­ous gift. Most women love them, they would like to receive them for any occa­sion and in any quan­ti­ty. They can be giv­en as an addi­tion to a gift or just for no rea­son.

Buy­ing flors for a birth­day is still con­sid­ered good man­ners and any­one should keep this in mind.

Women are giv­en ros­es, the col­or of which depends on age.

For exam­ple, a young girl should be pre­sent­ed with ros­es of gen­tle tones.

The choice of col­ors depends on the per­son for whom they are intend­ed. There are many types of flors:

  • ros­es;
  • cloves;
  • sun­flors;
  • wild­flors.

Mixed bou­quets of dif­fer­ent types of flors also look good, one of which is dom­i­nant, and the rest com­ple­ment each oth­er.

White and pas­tel flors suit a young girl.

Bright and expres­sive col­ors are ide­al for a mature woman.

It is cus­tom­ary for moth­ers to give flors with cheer­ful and grace­ful tones for their birth­day.

Anoth­er indi­ca­tor of the choice of flors for birth­days is their num­ber in the bou­quet. Hov­er, in the case of a birth­day, it is not nec­es­sary to adhere to this. When a girl turns 17, the same num­ber of ros­es in a bou­quet is most desir­able. But for the 56th anniver­sary, you should not give so many ros­es — based on tra­di­tion, you can order a bou­quet with an odd num­ber.

In some cas­es, you can give a solo flor. In fact, in many cas­es, florists will tell you how to choose a bou­quet for a cel­e­bra­tion.

Some girls don’t like cut flors because they die quick­ly. In this case, it is bet­ter to refuse a flor (a flor in a pot is a gift for mom or grand­moth­er). One flor, such as a rose, is ide­al for meet­ings when a young man invites a girl to a movie or cafe.

If flors will be a birth­day present, then it is bet­ter to pick up a bou­quet. Beau­ti­ful bou­quets of many types of flors, for exam­ple, from the field. You can also give a large bou­quet, con­sist­ing of only one species.

Flors can sym­bol­ize cer­tain feel­ings. They are an expres­sion of love, respect, as ll as jeal­ousy, infi­deli­ty. When choos­ing plants for your loved one, you should be care­ful not to offend her.

Flors mean the fol­low­ing:

  • White Rose — puri­ty;
  • Red Rose - love, pas­sion;
  • pink rose — del­i­ca­cy;
  • yel­low rose — betray­al, jeal­ousy;
  • red tulip — love;
  • yel­low tulip — jeal­ousy, anger;
  • vio­let - loy­al­ty;
  • Red clove — Delight;
  • yel­low car­na­tion - con­tempt;
  • lily - inno­cence;
  • sun­flor - False.

When choos­ing a plant col­or for a girl, you should pay atten­tion to white, red or pink.

How to make a surprise?

Breakfast in bed

Women love it. You should have a fold­ing table-tray for the bed. A good impres­sion will be made of a per­son if he goes out ear­ly in the morn­ing for fresh bread and del­i­ca­cies.

You can cook din­ner in the bath. For this, a spe­cial shelf for the bath­room is used.

It will turn out an orig­i­nal and, per­haps, even a fun­ny sur­prise.


If a young cou­ple has not been to the cin­e­ma or the­ater for a long time, then it is worth plan­ning a date in these estab­lish­ments. The per­for­mance is just an addi­tion to hav­ing a pleas­ant evening togeth­er. The evening, of course, should end togeth­er, over a cup of cof­fee, where you can, for exam­ple, dis­cuss the ses­sion you have watched.

Spontaneous Journey

You can take the girl to Paris, Gene­va or Rome. Thanks to this, the young man will make a huge impres­sion, although it will sig­nif­i­cant­ly increase the val­ue of the gift. This is a great idea for a trip dur­ing which you can announce your feel­ings.

Hov­er, if a young man invites a girl to a rent­ed forester’s house in a near­by for­est or spon­ta­neous­ly goes to the sea with her even in win­ter, the effect will be no worse. It is worth remem­ber­ing that the atmos­phere of the whole hol­i­day is the most impor­tant.


We cur­rent­ly have a very busy lifestyle, so using relax­ing spa treat­ments can be a pleas­ant sur­prise. It is advis­able to choose some­thing more exot­ic, such as a hot choco­late mas­sage.

Such an event can be pre­pared at home. To do this, put a divid­ed bar of dark choco­late in a bowl, add olive oil and stir with essen­tial oils.


If a girl is inter­est­ed in sewing, knit­ting, decoupage, pho­tog­ra­phy and oth­er activ­i­ties, then you should find a place in the city where cours­es in this area are held and give her a sub­scrip­tion to these events.


A very inter­est­ing idea would also be the pur­chase of a pro­fes­sion­al pho­to shoot. Women often lack the feel­ing that they are beau­ti­ful. A good pho­tog­ra­ph­er will be able to bring out their nat­ur­al beau­ty and gain self-con­fi­dence.

After the ses­sion, a good sou­venir will remain for decades. By the way, you can also order a fam­i­ly ses­sion.

Budget options

Kitchen aprons and tols, kitchen gloves are not the best gifts. It is not good when a man looks at a woman as if she re a ser­vant. Incense, scent­ed can­dles are accept­able and nice if the girl likes them and uses them all the time.


90% of women “sit” on a per­ma­nent diet for ight loss, so a set gift will not always be in place. Like flors, con­fec­tionery can be an addi­tion, but there are excep­tions.

An excep­tion is a mod­est gift that can be giv­en to an unfa­mil­iar girl, for exam­ple, dur­ing the first meet­ing.

Then you can give flors and choco­late.

If sets are to be a gift, then it is desir­able that they be orig­i­nal, for exam­ple, hand­made or exclu­sive choco­lates with unusu­al addi­tives. If a young man does not know the pref­er­ences of a woman in this mat­ter, then they usu­al­ly choose dessert sets, not milk ones.

Books — require pri­or explo­ration. When a man sees a girl read­ing a book, it’s good to know if she enjoys read­ing it. If it turns out that you real­ly like it, then you can give anoth­er book by the same author. The best option is to find the lat­est pub­lished book. In this case, there will be less chance that the book has already been read.

Don’t buy books like ight loss guides, cook­books (unless cook­ing is her hob­by and she real­ly likes to look for new recipes), “How to get a job” for the unem­ployed.

souvenir book

On the anniver­sary of the rela­tion­ship, you should think about what will become the bear­er of mem­o­ries. It can be, for exam­ple, a pho­to book with pho­tographs from the begin­ning of a rela­tion­ship to the present day. It can also be a col­lec­tion of the most impor­tant con­ver­sa­tions via email, instant or text mes­sages. Such a gift will great­ly awak­en pleas­ant mem­o­ries. It is worth remem­ber­ing that the aes­thet­ic aspect of this pub­li­ca­tion is also very impor­tant, but a good book­binder can take care of that.


For a hair­dress­er, a cos­me­tol­o­gist, a buy­er, this is a reli­able gift, because it is bet­ter to pur­chase such a coupon than to give some­thing com­plete­ly unde­sir­able.

restaurant invitation

A good gift, pro­vid­ed that this restau­rant is not a net­work where crowds of peo­ple “walk over their heads.”


It used to be con­sid­ered a gift for men. But there are women who like to drink good wine, liquor. Of course, you will have to buy alco­hol to the taste of a woman, and not for your­self.


Per­haps the woman is a cof­fee gourmet. Then you can look for exclu­sive brands of cof­fee.


Cin­e­ma tick­ets (the­ater, opera) are a good gift, but only for per­son­al, pri­vate anniver­saries. A movie tick­et is quite com­mon, so it’s best to give it as a sur­prise.

Flash cards with music

But this may not work if the woman is a music afi­ciona­do and down­loads music files direct­ly from the b.


For unusu­al, but very orig­i­nal and roman­tic gifts, you need to buy brand­ed, high-qual­i­ty paja­mas. This type of cloth­ing is an indi­vid­ual gift. It is not as “thin” as under­ar, but it evokes cer­tain asso­ci­a­tions.

For this rea­son, such a present would not be very suit­able for a girl with whom the young man does not yet have a close rela­tion­ship.

Original DIY gifts

Using a good idea and your own skills, you can pre­pare many orig­i­nal and cre­ative gifts. The fact that the young man did not lim­it him­self to a sim­ple pur­chase in the store, but spent his time and cre­ative tal­ent will tes­ti­fy in his favor.

Such gifts work bet­ter in an already estab­lished close rela­tion­ship in which both par­ties know each oth­er ll.


Some­times it hap­pens that a young man finds some­thing most suit­able for a lady, but the thing does not look too beau­ti­ful or cheap. It could be, for exam­ple, an old book that has rare con­tent but is visu­al­ly ugly. It is not nec­es­sary to refuse such a gift. All you have to do is spend some time choos­ing the per­fect pack­ag­ing for it.

For exam­ple, said book could be wrapped in gray paper, pro­vid­ed with old stick­ers from hotels and air­ports print­ed at home. All this may look like she trav­eled all over the world for at least 50 years before reach­ing her des­ti­na­tion. Such an unusu­al gift will be remem­bered for a long time.

Women often dream of many things that they would not buy on their own. The young man just needs to know what to look for. But do not for­get to invest ener­gy in the aes­thet­ic design of the gift wrap­ping.


If a young man knows his girl­friend ll, then he can give some­thing that is of great impor­tance to a girl. But this thing might just need to be updat­ed. This can be done with your own hands or giv­en to spe­cial­ists.

For exam­ple, he can give his girl­friend a grand­moth­er’s engage­ment ring. Then it should be enno­bled by the jel­er, filled with the miss­ing stones, the met­al cleaned and lev­eled. The effect will be stun­ning. The ring will look like new.

And it does­n’t mat­ter if he sews a soft toy on his own or buys a lux­u­ri­ous dress. It is nec­es­sary to try to express some­thing extra­or­di­nary in a gift. If the present has a deep­er mean­ing, then it is def­i­nite­ly more ighty or even fun.

Hand­i­crafts are a fan­tas­tic way to show how much a per­son cares, and it’s also a great way to save mon­ey.

Filled with high­lights from a birth­day girl’s life, birth­day posters are a great per­son­al­ized sur­prise.


Make your own notepad. It will turn out an inex­pen­sive and nice present that will be con­ve­nient and mem­o­rable.

Origami from money

The best birth­day present is mon­ey fold­ed into a bou­quet.

Lavender hand soap

Laven­der soap is a won­der­ful and use­ful birth­day gift. If a young man knows how to make soap, then this is just fine. If not, then you can quick­ly mas­ter this method. Today, whole sets are sold for obtain­ing this hygiene prod­uct: from spe­cial soap bases to forms and aro­mat­ic addi­tives.

grass heads

Grass heads are a fun home­made gift for a girl’s birth­day.

These grass heads can be per­son­al­ized to look like fam­i­ly mem­bers.

Sugar and rose scrub

A sug­ar and rose scrub is def­i­nite­ly a good gift for a girl. Each per­son can make a cos­met­ic prod­uct, which is a sug­ar scrub.

This is espe­cial­ly true for aller­gic skin. Exfo­li­a­tion is nec­es­sary to remove impu­ri­ties and dead skin cells, which pre­vents the for­ma­tion of black­heads. The skin in this case is bet­ter sup­plied with blood, becomes more elas­tic and reju­ve­nat­ed.


  • 1½ cups sug­ar;
  • ¼ cup body but­ter, such as olive oil
  • a dozen rose petals;
  • blender;
  • dec­o­ra­tive jar with a lid.


  • sug­ar and indi­vid­ual rose petals are placed in a blender;
  • every­thing is filled with oil;
  • rose petals, sug­ar and but­ter are mixed until smooth;
  • sug­ar peel­ing pours into a pret­ty jar;
  • if peel­ing should be a gift, then a few rose petals can be put in a jar;
  • you can dec­o­rate the jar with col­ored rib­bon, a rose and a tag.

The smell of peel­ing is amaz­ing. Usu­al­ly ros­es have a faint smell, but ground with sug­ar and but­ter give a won­der­ful aro­ma. Peel­ing works great, wash­ing away all impu­ri­ties. At the same time, it per­fect­ly mois­tur­izes. The skin after bathing with such a pro­ce­dure is pleas­ant to the touch and smells won­der­ful.

Tray frame

For all those who want to give an orig­i­nal pho­to, you can make a frame. The pho­to is insert­ed into the cen­ter of the tray. This present is impres­sive and looks beau­ti­ful.

cover for flor pot

A pot­ted plant is always a good gift idea. Before hand­ing it over, do not for­get about the beau­ti­ful pack­ag­ing of the vase. It’s best to cre­ate the wrap­per your­self.

If you choose nat­ur­al brown wrap­ping paper, then this will cer­tain­ly be a good solu­tion.

When the pack­ag­ing process is com­plete, you can dec­o­rate it with mat­te oil mark­ers — their wide range includes var­i­ous col­ors, from bright and cheer­ful to plain black.

Plates hand painted

Embroi­dery has become fash­ion­able again, but this does not mean that you need to embroi­der table­cloths and nap­kins. The rebat­ed porce­lain felt-tip pens make it pos­si­ble, for exam­ple, to dec­o­rate plates and cups made of heat-resis­tant ceram­ics or porce­lain with cross pat­terns. Draw­ing on plates is much eas­i­er than it seems at first glance, and cross-stitch draw­ings are espe­cial­ly sim­ple because a per­son draws each cross sep­a­rate­ly.

The pen nib has a mul­ti­pur­pose hole to cre­ate thin and thick lines that resem­ble brush strokes. The creamy con­sis­ten­cy of the ink on porce­lain mark­ers ensures an even dis­tri­b­u­tion with­out unnec­es­sary dots. Line pat­terns or oth­er graph­ic options are also easy to draw. When the cre­ation of the dec­o­ra­tion comes to an end, you should leave the ink for a short time to dry, and then fix the draw­ings on the porce­lain in a pre­heat­ed oven.

Valentine bowl

If you have glossy oil mark­ers, it’s not hard to cre­ate the look of a bowl or jar, as the durable coat­ing ink they con­tain real­ly shows up ll on dark sur­faces.

In addi­tion to valen­tines, heart-shaped bal­loons with hand-writ­ten love mes­sages can be insert­ed inside the con­tain­er.

Original napkin

Most of the clas­sic place­mats avail­able in stores have bor­ing col­ors or unat­trac­tive designs. If you need to stand out and use text mark­ers, you can cre­ate your own nap­kins.

You should come up with an inter­est­ing project, draw it on a card­board box. There are spe­cial mark­ers for dye­ing light-col­ored fab­rics, such as cot­ton, silk or linen. You can choose from 20 col­ors and two line widths, keep­ing in mind that neon col­ors have a par­tic­u­lar­ly intense effect.

More­over, sets of tex­tile mark­ers are avail­able: shades of blue and green, red or oth­er col­ors. When the draw­ing is ready, you need to iron the fab­ric. Thanks to this, it can be safe­ly washed at tem­per­a­tures up to 60 degrees.

Saucers for jelry

If you need to find a great idea for a gift for a girl, jel­ry saucers are what you need. To give it an orig­i­nal look, you can use the beau­ti­ful col­ors of spe­cial felt-tip pens for paint­ing porce­lain. These pens are ide­al tools for dec­o­rat­ing porce­lain, heat-resis­tant glass and glazed ceram­ics.

After fin­ish­ing work, you need to leave the ink for a while to dry, and then heat the prod­ucts in a pre­heat­ed oven.

beautiful garlands

You can also dec­o­rate the girl’s room for her birth­day with won­der­ful gar­lands. There is noth­ing com­pli­cat­ed about it, and guests are sure to be impressed. Text mark­ers and pens are great for embell­ish­ing the mate­ri­als used. Thanks to them, you can eas­i­ly dec­o­rate each pen­nant in such a way that it match­es the spe­cif­ic occa­sion. To do this, it is enough to put icons or texts on pen­nants using tem­plates that can be found on the world­wide b.

phone case decoration

Almost every­one uses a case to pro­tect their mobile phone. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, most of the mod­els avail­able in stores do not impress. For this rea­son, it is worth cre­at­ing your own case that will suit your tastes, which is much more pleas­ant.

To imple­ment this idea, it is enough to choose the appro­pri­ate draw­ing and the appro­pri­ate felt-tip pens.


A hand­made cot­ton bag is a great gift for those who love shop­ping.

Most women nev­er leave the house with­out a bag. Now you can cre­ate an orig­i­nal and fash­ion­able bag with a tex­tile han­dle. You don’t have to be an artist to turn a bag into a beau­ti­ful piece. Even begin­ners will be able to draw the select­ed draw­ing in a short time. All you need to do is come up with your own theme or copy one of the designs from the Inter­net.

Tex­tile mark­ers and pens are ide­al for draw­ing on light­ight fab­rics such as cot­ton and linen.

When the draw­ing is ready, you need to iron the fab­ric.

cat house

If a girl has a pet, then you can give her such a house. It is ll known that cats love card­board box­es and they don’t need any­thing else to be hap­py. Cats love to hide in all sorts of box­es, pots, cab­i­nets, bags.

To make such hous­ing, you need to prop­er­ly redo the box.


  • box;
  • knife;
  • scis­sors;
  • self-adhe­sive tape.


  • choose a tem­plate on the Inter­net;
  • cut the entrance to the “cot­tage” with a knife;
  • above the entrance to write the name of the cat;
  • make a slop­ing roof from the upper parts of the card­board;
  • glue it all with thick tape.

You can put a blan­ket and toys for cats in the house.
