Top Summer Birthday Gifts for Her

Women want wild and crazy stunts to show her you love her on her birthday. They want hot-air balloon rides at sky-high altitudes. They long for “Dave loves Jessie” lit up in big, bright lights for all the world to see. And of course they want you to scale a mountain and shout at the top of your lungs (which are starving for oxygen by the way) that you love this woman and want her to have the happiest birthday in the world!

Now scratch the hot air balloon, she’s afraid of heights. Scratch the lit-up declaration of love, she’s probably embarrassed. And don’t even think about scaling that mountain, because let’s face it, the chances are you won’t make it back down.

Men only get a few opportunities each year to prove they’re not completely inept in knowing what their woman wants. The inexperienced ones go overboard, planning these marvelous, magnificent, and yet truly disastrous birthday gifts. The veterans on the other hand? Well they stick to simplicity to ensure their better half is happy and content on their big day and not shaking in fear 2,000 feet above the Earth’s surface thinking of ways to get back at you on your birthday. Here are simple gifts to tell your special woman you love her.

Flowers

Women drool over a beautiful bouquet of flowers. The colors, the scents, and the meanings attached to each individual species can add up to being the most thoughtful gift you can give. Red roses say “I love you”, white lily’s represent “purity and sweetness”, and orchids communicate the “magnificent beauty” that she possesses. Flowers always ensure your love will continue to grow.

Perfume

Another traditional yet always engaging present, perfume is always at the top of a woman’s gift list. It’s sexy, endearing, and a safe bet for most men. Consider the top sellers of this year: Daisy by Marc Jacobs, Coco Noir from Chanel, Donna Karan Cashmere Mist, and Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb.

Jewelry

It’s the year of the watch. They’re in and they’re going to be on the high-end of any woman’s birthday wish list. The hot color is rose-gold and the most popular brand is none other than Michael Kors. Imagine her wrist without the watch. Now imagine it with the watch. Yeah, it looks that good and she’ll feel the same way.

IPAD, Tablet

It is the 21st century right? These tablets are red hot right now and even the most technological challenged individual will enjoy it. It has everything a woman needs: music, Internet, videos, etc. A short tutorial on its use will pave the way for her to play with this device for years to come.

A Night of Dining and Dancing

How many times has she tried to persuade you to get your dancing shoes out? And how many times have you actually done it? This time, turn the tables to give her the surprise of her life. Follow up an exquisite meal with a night of dusting off the old moves and embarking on a dance celebration she’ll absolutely love.

Cruise

For those using her birthday as an excuse to sail the Caribbean, there’s nothing wrong with that. A cruise is a romantic getaway where you can showcase how much you truly love and care about her. And the best part is you can bring the flowers, the gift basket, book the trip on her brand new IPAD, and you can even promise to hit the dance floor to give her the most amorous and unforgettable birthday present she will ever remember.

Show her she’s special on her birthday, but keep the flair packed away. Simple gifts come with simple messages. And the simple messages will always carry the deepest meaning.
