She turns 20 in July -- 3 months to be exact.

She isn't girly or dandy in the least. The way she dresses is a bit hard to explain, it isn't gangster but it isn't feminine--I guess I would say it's 'butch' or hardcore tomboy. In any case, if you randomly saw or met her, you would have no idea she was a female; you would automatically think she was a guy.

She does not like girl things at all and I am having quite a hard time picking out a gift for I am not very good at male clothes or jewelry. She has told me countless times that the only thing she wants for her birthday is me but I want to be nice and get her something anyway.

I love you Steph. <3

Well, gifts don't have to only be clothing or jewelry if that's not her thing or yours. Those are only two options.

What are some others? Books. Pieces of art. A CD or two.

Outings of some kind: like a day at a women's bathhouse, a concert, a dinner, a road trip, whatever. And you can do that stuff on the cheap but still have it be totally awesome, like creating and organizing a picnic somewhere cool.

I don't know if she's a party person, but throwing someone a bash is another way of giving them a gift.

I think the best gifts are just things/activities that you know she would enjoy. Like tickets to a band she likes, for example.

One of my favorite gifts from my bf was a new video card for my computer, so I could play games better on it.

What are you not sure about Kristii?

Heather and KatWa have given some good ideas. Maybe if you have a think about what things your girlfriend enjoys, then you can pick something related to that? If you're really stuck, she has said she just wants you, so an outing/trip where you get to spend one-on-one time together sounds good to me. [Smile]
