Ever been stumped by what to give a girl for her birthday? What a silly question...of course you have! But if you want an inexpensive yet classy gift to give, read on: Be sure not to be want to impress your date, don't ya?


  1. Decide on a theme. You could pick a color most stores have, like blue or red. Stay away from exotic ones, like chartreuse or mauve. You could do a guitar or sports theme Or, do a character theme of Barbie, princesses, Hannah Montana, etc.(Depending on the age and interests of the person receiving the gift, you don't want to get them something they don't want. REMEMBER: It's their birthday, not yours, get them something they want).
    • Let's say I chose red as my theme. Now, go to a CVS (yes, this is where you will get the most of the gift) or a Walgreen's and find a container that matches your theme, in my case red. You can find a martini glass, make-up box, or bag. However, if you want to put a little more effort and money into your gift, go to Kohls or other retail stores. Let's say I go there and I find a red purse.
  2. Find a drugstore. Walk up and down the aisles looking for things that match your theme of your gift. Still using my theme of red, I would buy Big Red gum, Hot Tamales, red nail polish, red lipgloss and a red card.Some drug stores have a rack of gift cards. Gift cards are great to put in addition to your gift because it allows your honouree to purchase something that they want from a particular store. If you are interested in Disney, why not get them a gift card to the Disney store. If they are interested in music, why not get them a gift card to HMV. Catching on?
  3. Now, put all your gifts in your container, in this case, the purse EXCEPT the card.
  4. Wrap your present or bag it according to your theme. In this case, find a red gift bag/box or wrapping paper, that is suited to the birthday theme (Might say 'Happy Birthday', and if it is a bag/box, put in red or pink tissue paper, along with a touch of silver or gold. If you wrap it, make sure to tie it up with a ribbon (red with a gold or silver line).
  5. Write a meaningful message on the card wishing them a happy birthday. Do not go for the generic "I hope you have a very Happy Birthday {insert name here}" or the incredibly cheesy; ""I hope your day is as special as you". Make it personal, so the recipient feels like you thought about them.
  6. Attach tastefully to the gift. Either punch a hole it the corner and tie it on with the same ribbon you used for a bow earlier, or slide it under the ribbon, or gracefully in the tissue paper.
  7. Now, deliver it with a smile! Give it to them at a time when they can really pay attention to it, not when they feel rushed.


  • You can, depending on your container, you can get this gift for around $10. But, again, this price may fluctuate with the accessories or stores you go to.
  • Have fun with it! It will make shopping so much easier! And remember, sometimes cheesy is cool! If SHE LIKES it, get the honoree a Hannah Montana gift filling it with all MILEY!
  • Make sure the honoree likes the theme before you start going crazy with this gift!! Even if you like it, make sure THEY like it!


  • Make sure you stay focused, or else you'll be buying like crazy. Only buy for the person, not you!!
  • Never get a gift that your budget doesn't allow. Do not go bankrupt just to get someone a good gift.
