    Any suggestions for a gift? Obviously I don't plan on getting her anything too big, just something to go along with the card. Her actual b-day is nov. 14th, so I'll probably take her to an upscale restaurant, but her parents are having a Halloween party on Saturday and it will double as a surprise birthday party..

    Ahh. Sorry.. She's turning 30, great girl, went to law school, just took the bar.. not high maintenance, but always looks good.. a bit of a home-body, very sweet.

    I'm bringing a bottle of wine to the party, will be picking up a card, just looking for a little something.

    Thats hard, with only dating for a month you'd be hard pressed to do anything really special. I'd say a bottle of wine and a card is good for the party. Then plan a really good date for her actual birthday.

    try to pay attention to things she says she wants or likes in the next few weeks. if you guys are in the car listening to the radio and she says she loves a song or an artist, get her their cd (if she doesnt already have it), or if she mentions she loves a movie, etc

    it doesnt have to be anything big, just the fact that you heard something she wanted and picked it up for her will be sweet.

    if you still have no luck with that, make her a nice dinner, or take her out to a nice dinner, and that should be good as well.

    actually i dealt with this same situation when i first met my gf. You guys haven't dated long enough to warrant any extravagant gifts...but it doesn't mean you can't do anything thoughtful.

    I got her some flowers and took her to a nice dinner. Or, like someone else said, if you paid attention the entire month, you can probably guess little things she likes and base your gift around it.

    Do not go all out with the bday thing though. You're only setting yourself up for an expensive relationship

    A motto to live by in relationships: Dont set the bar so high you cant jump over it again.

    I sang happy birthday for my girlfriend on my guitar, wrote a poem, and drew a sketch of a abstract dancer picture that I saw on deviant art(since she was a dancer in high school) and got a frame for it from wal-mart. This all cost me 2$. We had only be been dating for four months btw.

    Well said.

    I would probably get her some flowers and/or a card, taker her out somewhere nice for dinner, and leave it at that. No need to dump a large amount of money on her at this point, if you do she may start to expect it every time.

    Depends on the person.


    But I don't don't usually get cards for people who are close/I see all the time. It's more of a distant relative & acquaintance sort of thing.

    I bought roses for my girl on her bday when we were still just dating hadn't slept together. It got me laid later that night when I dropped her off at her place after the bar.

    I think they cost like 30 bucks or something. Nothing extravegant and you don't look crazy by giving her something personal like jewelry.
