Surprise your girlfriend with something special, just because! It doesn’t have to be a birthday, Valentine’s day or anniversary to put together cute surprises for your girlfriend.
Surprise Gifts for Girlfriend
Surprise gifts for girlfriend can make her entire week. Small things like flowers, or love notes mean so much to us. Especially that you went out of your way to do something special ‘just because.’ Some of my favorite ‘just because gifts’ have been flowers, coffee (at home or from our favorite coffee stand), and small pieces of jewelry, but the possibilities are endless.
A surprise gift doesn’t have to be something material. You can always surprise her with tickets to an event, a special dinner date, or just doing little things that are above and beyond around the house. Small gestures of kindness, compliments, and little gifts can all be beautiful and special ways to show her how much you care.

Surprise Sticky Notes
I love these surprise gifts for girlfriend because it is so special, and so affordable! No need to break the bank to express how you feel and make her day! Write some positive affirmations, compliments, love notes, or special memories down on sticky notes, and start hiding them around the house. Bonus points if you stick them along the path of her day-to-day routine. (Mirror, shower, purse, fridge, desk, laptop etc.)
Golden Self Care Box

She’ll love all the goodies inside and the fact that you went out of your way to get something to help her unwind and relax. This is also a great creative gift for a long distance girlfriend.
Pressed Flower Necklace
I cannot get enough of pressed flower art, and what woman doesn’t want a beautiful delicate necklace to add to her repertoire. Jewelry, although cliche, continues to make a timeless and lovely surprise gifts for girlfriend. Especially when you take the time to find something high quality, that fits your lady’s style and taste.
Be Yourself Yoga Tee
Remind her how beautiful, powerful and strong she is. Today, and everyday she wears this soft and cozy t-shirt!
A person can never have too many candles. I’m obsessed with these handmade soy candles that can be found on Etsy. They smell amazing, and the presentation is beautiful. Why buy her ONE candle, when you can get an adorable set!
Spotify Song Necklace
Another option for jewelry. Customize this necklace with a song that is special to you and for her! She can scan the necklace to pull up the song on Spotify. This is a fun and sweet sentimental gift for gf.
Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in bed is one of the best surprise gift for girlfriend. If you wake up on different schedules, you can even go out and pick up a special breakfast and coffee to bring home to her. She definitely won’t be expecting that and will love waking up to you and a special treat.
Pun Filled Mug
Sometimes the best surprise is just a simple punny mug. It’s sweet, simple and useful.
Bath Bomb Variety Box
I would be OBSESSED if my fiancé ordered me a variety pack of bath bombs, ‘just because’! It’s not something I would buy on my own, which makes it all the more fun to be gifted it! Who doesn’t need a nice colorful fizzy bath to soak away the day in!

Speaking of trips… Plan a trip! I will never forget back when my fiancé and I were dating, he planned a trip to Rome and away we went! Now to be fair, it couldn’t be a total surprise, we had to plan around work, but don’t be afraid to surprise her with a special trip! Whether it’s to Rome, or a weekend getaway a little closer to home, she will be absolutely thrilled and the two of you will get to enjoy the extra special time together.

Cook Her a special Dinner
Prepare a special dinner for her, decorate the house with some romantic flowers or candles, and don’t forget the dessert!
