Flowers in the morning with a little card saying happy birthday, gift card to a spa in the afternoon, then dinner with you at night and if you want you can get her a little present to give to her at dinner.

As for gift ideas, what kind of things does she like?

Remember it's the little things that counts, so doing something thoughtful is sweet too.

does she like bags? Into make up and stuff? There are alot of options, just dont get her stupid flowers, they die and make a mess, lol!

How about a bag from a high end designer if shes into that stuff( I am, lol), or maybe take her shopping, or you can try making a res at a nice restaurant, then maybe giving her a gift there? HOw about a watch? White ones are in for obviously next summer, Michele is a nice brand depending on her style..

My husband chipped in toward my wheels( but thats me) lol..

Let me know if you need any help

Thanks for all the advices - she likes designer bags but she has too many but I think she would still like another LV or Burberry...she often hints about how she wants a Hermes...etc but again as afar as I am concerned buying bags is a wste of money....she doesnt need any wheels as she already has BBS RS GTs on her 6 series....she wants a Cartier watch but again that is too much for me......

I know she likes flowers but again they die and make a mess.....lol, and its a waste of money for me lol ...so as you can tell there is a reason why I am running out of ideas....

Do nothing in the morning, tell her how you want your breakfast and dont say happy birthday or anything. If she hints at it being a special day pretend you dont remember. At about lunch time she will be going crazy thinking you forgot and that is when you spring a surprise on her. As for gift ideas nearly anything from tiffany will be good, I would never buy a purse for a girl because it is hard to get one that they really like unless they have dropped hints already as to which one in which color they want.

Why dont you plan dinner in the city (since your in CT) and then stay overnight in a upscale hotel; Hotel Rivington, Hudson is trendy, Gansevoort Park Ave......? Then wake up, have breakfast and spend the afternoon exploring the neighborhoods and shops. Dude if that doesn't work, I guess your stuck

I think that will work because she loves the city on the other hand I actually rather go to Boston than NYC...but that is just me
