Christmas gift ideas for a girlfriend include jewelry, a dress, a handbag, a gift certificate for downloading music, tickets to a concert, a book or a subscription to a monthly wine club. Good gift ideas vary based on what the girlfriend is interested in and at what stage the relationship is.
If the girlfriend enjoys clothes, a robe or a pair of boots are a good choice. Girls who are into technology may enjoy a digital camera or a tablet. Gift ideas that a girl may like for her home include an espresso machine, artwork or candles. A vacation is a great gift for girls who like to travel. A road trip to a bed and breakfast is a good choice for an inexpensive vacation.
For a casual relationship or one less than three months old, a Christmas gift is supposed to be fun and inexpensive, usually costing less than $30. If a couple has been dating three to six months, a typical gift budget is $30 to $75, and romantic gifts should only be given if the couple is exclusive. For couples dating over six months, or those who are in serious relationships, the gifts can be more expensive and romantic.
