When we celebrate the people who mean the most to us, one thing really matters: paying attention to them. There is no such thing as the ultimate key online that will tell you exactly what a friend (and certainly not your special one) wants for her birthday. The search for the perfect gift or the flawlessly planned party can be stressful, however, so hopefully these ideas can give you a little jump start when planning an unforgettable birthday for your girlfriend.
Mark the birthday on your calendar. You can’t bring your girlfriend a memorable birthday if you forget it. If you don’t remember when it is, ask her.
- Decent birthday planning doesn’t start the night before the birthday and you won’t even know it’s the night before the birthday if you don’t ask. You want a warning so that you can go through all of the preparations that you should be making
Listen to her carefully. This should go without saying for a healthy relationship and a well-functioning conversation partner, but make double the effort as your birthday approaches. Without a little effort, you will miss even the most obvious clues. If you’re shopping together, guess what? Right, she will talk about things she would like to have. Start a list with the note function of your smartphone or carry a small notebook with you in your backpack (but be discreet when you write in it).
- You may also get hints when you hang out on the couch together, lazily surf the Internet, or half follow the television program. If she has her iPad or cell phone open, try to pay attention to the occasional comments that might reveal gifts.
- That goes beyond the realm of gifts too. For example, you can only find out by actively listening if your friend hates surprise parties because she was horribly laughed at by her friends in tenth grade for a subject on her pajamas. In that case, having a surprise party planned would be a terrible idea. Don’t assume that she likes something just because you like it.
Be careful when she is with her friends. Even if you only have lunch together, she will likely be more open to talking to you about some of their interests that she thinks you don’t care about. Don’t let these openly given gift ideas (or opinions that might warn you about bad gifts) go to waste!Birthdays are a very special occasion for everyone so if you want some romantic birthday wishes for your girlfriend then you can visit our site.
Ask her what she would like. Of course, she has no obligation to answer you openly, but tackling the problem head on is often the best solution for everyone involved.
- If she tells you that she doesn’t want anything for free, that doesn’t mean “literally don’t do anything for my birthday”. Small gestures, like cooking dinner or giving away something you have made yourself, to remember your time together can be most welcome, even if she’s not expecting a big gift. If she doesn’t want a big event, how about a quiet evening for two?
- You shouldn’t ignore specific requests about how much money should be spent on the gift, especially after you’ve asked them for their opinion. The notion “more money = better gift” is a widespread misconception about birthday gifts, especially in the early phases of a relationship. 
- Although expressing a wish makes the person more susceptible to disappointment, don’t let it discourage you if you cannot grant your partner’s wish. If your wish is currently unaffordable for you, you’d better take a completely different path and not limit yourself to a less ideal version of a limited edition sneaker or the Tom Ford perfume.
Consider the status of your relationship. What may be appropriate for a girl you took out on a date in the classroom two days ago is certainly not appropriate for your four-year-old girlfriend who you’ve been living with for some time, and vice versa. Take the length of the relationship and the level of intimacy into account when considering your partner’s birthday.
- Overdoing it is another of those common mistakes in a new relationship.  Planning an entire evening of festivities may not be the best for newbies. But be communicative and let them know that you think about them during the day. Sending text messages back and forth or a few old-fashioned handwritten letters can do the job, for example.
Make a plan and prepare early. If you wait until the last minute to pick up the gift, make the restaurant reservation, or ask your boss if you can break up early so you can meet your girlfriend at the cinema, it will stress you out and Create situations where you have to resort to the second best (or third best) option. For no friend do the kidnapping tactics of her boyfriend appear in the imagination of an unforgettable birthday.
- If you’re planning a surprise party, make sure all guests know early enough so that they can clarify their schedule and make adjustments accordingly.
- Exploring a museum is a great idea for a birthday, but you should be perfectly sure about museum policies, ticket prices, and opening times in advance. Just assuming everything is open because “it should be” is a great way to thwart the best birthday plans at the last minute.
