Giving gifts, especially for a girlfriend, can be a very daunting task.

To make this as stress-free as possible, whether you’re shopping for an anniversary gift, a birthday present, or just something special to surprise your loved one, I’m going to present you with 5 gift ideas that have stood the test of time and are (most importantly) appreciated by women from all walks of life.

In no particular order, here is the list of recommended gifts for the bride:

1. Lingerie Girls like to dress sexy for their men and when their men give them a sexy gift, like lingerie they have chosen themselves, girls appreciate it even more. So if you’re worried about going to the nearest Victoria’s Secret to buy bras, panties, and/or scent-related accessories for your girlfriend, start browsing the web and pick something you’d love to see your girlfriend wearing in your presence. Of course, you’d be wise to know your girl’s bra and panty sizes ahead of time before making any purchases, so you may need to run some reconnaissance missions through her dresser drawers.

2. handwritten love letter As we are well into the “Information Age”, one question that comes to mind is “who writes letters by hand these days?”. Less every day. Recognizing this and that many times the monetary value of the gift means much less to a woman than the intrinsic value or should I say “from the heart” that a gift like a handwritten love letter demands, a handwritten love letter is something your girl will keep in storage for days, months and years to come, where a fancy dinner at a high class restaurant will be over in 2-3 hours.

3. Photo Collection Scrapbook Similar to the idea of ​​the handwritten love letter, a photo collection scrapbook is also a gift that women appreciate especially since photos these days are digitized. Going out of her way to print her digitized photos of the two of you and place them in a scrapbook with messages, stickers, and such is something that will make her so happy to have you as her boyfriend.

4. personal video If it’s their birthday, take your portable video camera or borrow it from a friend if necessary and create a unique video with short messages from their friends, co-workers, family members, etc. wishing you a fabulous birthday. If you can’t physically reach all the important people in your network, ask them to send you their own clips so you can edit them into the final version. If it’s her anniversary or you just want to create a video for her as a surprise, include clips of places you’ve been on dates with comments, such as funny stories or other memorable moments.

5. handmade dinner Even if you are not the best chef in the world and your girlfriend knows it, she will appreciate it ten times more if you surprise her with a fancy dinner at your house, all prepared by YOU. So if you have no idea what to prepare or even how to cook, you better start researching what your girl likes and dislikes and take some cooking classes, especially if you are a complete newbie when it comes to cooking. From there, find a few recipes that don’t seem too difficult to perfect, and practice making those recipes a few times (you might even invite a few friends over to give you their own honest opinions) before narrowing the menu down to your final list for her.
