Birthday gift ideas for a girlfriend in her thirties

Gift ideas under $100

Romantic birthday presents for your gal don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg (or a month’s worth of pay). For example, you can get her one or two of the signature line of decorative tin candles from Nordstrom. Each one is only $8, and they have 25 hours of burn time. They look beautiful and have fragrant blends that make her home feel even more inviting than usual.

Another cute gift idea is a box of lavender soap jewels that are shimmering and look great on her bathroom counter. They’re almost too lovely to use… almost. Other great surprises for your hot woman include:

  • Temporary tattoos that feature her favorite animal or flower
  • A trinket dish for your GF to keep “this and that”
  • Nail decals in colors she loves to wear
  • Engraved pencil set based on a chick flick she adores, like Legally Blonde

If your lover has a great laugh and you can’t wait to hear it again, treat her to a comedy night for two at one of the local clubs. You might even find a deal through Groupon. Laugh until the late hours of the evening and buy her one of those fruity drinks she seems to like so much too.

Is your girlfriend an adventure seeker? If so, a gift she will treasure is ziplining or bungy jumping. Offer to drive the two of you to the location and pay for all of the expenses involved. Whether you join her or not for the adrenaline rush is completely up to you. If you want to get in on the thrill ride, try a tandem skydive; most packages include video of the couple taken by a skilled videographer freefalling in front!

Or, maybe your special lady is more of a homebody. She might like getting some new items for the house, including a high-end wood pillar speaker from Stelle Audio. If this woman stays home because she’s a foodie, surprise her with a set of handcrafted ​Poglia knives or gift wrap a KitchenAid Ultra Power Stand Mixer in bold red. By the way, this mixer packs a punch with ten speeds and 300-watt power.

Every woman dreams of a closet full of high-end clothes. Now you can give your girlfriend “The Forever Closet” from Net-a-Porter. The shopping experts, including the company’s Head of Personal Shopping Lupe Puerta, will help you create a wardrobe full of luxury fashion for your woman. Price varies by request; email to find out more.

If you think your stylish gal would rather shop for runway clothes herself, though, treat her to anything her heart desires at the Emilio Pucci online boutique. The Italian fashion designer offers luxury collections in a range of bold, beautiful colors. Your girlfriend will adore looking like she just stepped out of the pages of Vogue or Elle.

Speaking of stepping, you could also give her a pair of Jimmy Choo high heels. If the designer sounds familiar, it’s because his shoes are sought after by A-list actresses and singers. Well, you always knew you were with a diva!
