Like the many men who have came before me, I have too been cursed with the inability to give my girlfriend a good gift. Even if my life depended on it, I would find some way to give a terrible gift. There are however many guys out there who have no problem giving a good a gift. Luckily for me, I was able to get some help from one who helped me out with a few ideas.

He told me that there are several days throughout the year that women feel are special enough for exchanging gifts. For instance, Valentine?s Day will soon be here and couples generally exchange gifts. Here are a few great gift ideas that he shared with me. Maybe they will be helpful for you too. These are the top five gift ideas for girlfriends that always work.

- Jewelry is something that all girls want whether they let you know or not. You can give jewelry charms and charm bracelets to make the kind of impression you want whether you are a new couple, or you have been in a relationship for a while.

- Vacations are next on the list, since you can spend time alone together in a place you always wanted to visit. Go somewhere neither of you has ever been before.

-Electronics. Everyone these days could use something that makes their lives a little easier. Technology is the answer to whatever problem she may be having. All you have to do is figure out what she could use and head to the electronics store to pick it up.

- Handmade gifts always make a great impression. Consider making something for her while using your hands and creative talents. Make something for her that she will adore. For instance, you can paint her a portrait or write a song for her.

- Hobby items are always a good choice when you know what she likes to do. Choose something that compliments her interests. For instance, many women love Scrapbooking and stamp collecting, so new albums and accessories are always a good choice.

I really enjoyed talking with him and finding out all these, great gift ideas for the girlfriend. Now, I know that finding something especially for her that will surprise her does not have to be a challenge. However, first you do need to know your girlfriend and the kinds of things that she finds interesting and the things that she personally enjoys before you can find just the right gift to give to her. After you figure out those few details, finding the best gift for her becomes so much easier. Start early and then take your time searching for gift ideas that will surprise your girlfriend. If I can do it, so can you!
