Some are going to be easy to answer, depending on your relationship with the lady, and some will require a bit more intimate knowledge.

Is there anything she needs?

Is your wife’s shoe collection looking a little weary or could her wardrobe do with a touch of updating? If you’re certain that something is missing from her life, now’s the chance to give it to her.
Does she have a hobby or special interest?
What does she love to do in her spare time? Buying a gift that’s connected with a hobby of her’s is a perfect birthday gift idea. Are the times that she’s happiest when she’s cooking up a storm in the kitchen, or does she much prefer curling up on the couch with a good book? Does she love to keep fit by taking a daily run, or does she spend her weekends working out at the gym? Whatever she has as a hobby, there is bound to be a number of great birthday gift ideas for her.
Are there any fond memories that you share?
You’ll find us mentioning time and time again that a touch of personalization will lift even the most humdrum of gifts and this doesn’t just mean an engraving. Making a gift personal to the person concerned also works equally well. When you’re thinking about the woman you’re buying the gift for is there a special moment that always springs to mind? It could be romantic, sentimental or even embarrassing or humorous. What matters is the fact that you shared it.
