Like most of the gift selection process, we should take into account the price and the significance of the item to the person we are giving the gift to. However, if your bank account limits the amount you can spend on a gift, then expensive presents are out. However, you can still have a romantic gift without spending a ton of money.

You should also keep in mind that selecting a birthday gift for your girlfriend or wife should be more than just a last minute effort. You need to show that you care for her by putting a little bit of thought and effort into it.
Remember that girls have that magical sixth sense to which she can tell if you actually put a little effort in finding that perfect gift. So, if you’re short on ideas, read these tips for ideas on romantic gifts that to show her that you really care:
1. Breakfast in bed
This is probably the go to “gift” of most guys out there who are short on cash. But instead of doing the regular breakfast thing, use a love theme for the breakfast.
2. Box of notes that you like about her
This will probably cost you zero dollars and earn you lots of love than any other gift you can think of buying for her. Simply grab a lot of paper and start writing all the things you like or love about your woman, roll the pieces of paper and put it all in a box that you have decorated and voila!
3. Spa day
Treat your woman to a day of massage and iced tea on your porch. You don’t have to go to an expensive place. Just make sure that she is relaxed and well taken care of on her special day. Treat her extra special than you would on any other day.
4. Plan a weekend getaway
Nothing beats a romantic trip to a special place be it a beach or a resort where you can be alone together. While this may cost, it is worth it. Take her to a place that is special to both of you.
5. Recreate the day you met or your first date
This may take a lot of request to your friends and family but can be very rewarding. It will trigger a lot of memories that both of you treasure. Take her down your memory lane and enjoy her reaction.
6. Flowers and Chocolates
While this is not that original, it still counts as romantic. Instead of the boring routine of just giving it to her, why not try some other methods like acting like you have forgotten that it’s her birthday and have the flowers delivered to her work. Or, if you want to take it to the next level, you can wait until dinner and surprise her by waiting by the door with the flowers and chocolate and if you are feeling well, add a poem and have everybody waiting inside your house for a surprise birthday party.
Remember that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to make her special day a day to remember. Simply by putting extra effort on your gift can make her day very special and memorable.
