Spa in a Box, pampering girlfriend giftBe a better friend – think ahead for thoughtful, loved girlfriend gifts!

Summer birthdays are just around the corner and a little pre-planning can help your girlfriend’s birthday. Look at your calendar now for upcoming girlfriend birthdays. Think about their personal style, what’s going on in their life (busy mom, training for marathon, milestone birthday approaching) and consider a gift and/or celebration to be personalize to them and their dreams.

Here’s a few ideas to get you started on great girlfriend gifts for Summer birthdays:

* Is she a “Sex and the City” fan? Plan to take her to the movie when it launches May 27th. Plan a day of shoe shopping, an evening with cosmo’s and maybe a weekend of just being with the ‘girls. Here’s DVDs and downloads, episode guides, cast information, related products and more.

* Does she have that “Sex and the City” sense of style? Check out these sunglasses, scarves and handbags!

* Does she need a little pampering? Surprise her with a spa day, a gift certificate for a manicure or pedicure or, if long distance, a “spa in a box” (shown above) so she can feel loved and as special as her friendship is to you.

Friendship necklace silver* Need some time together? Want to reconnect? Give her a certificate for a day or weekend girlfriend getaway together. You don’t need to travel far – just treat yourself to a weekend trip together. Shop, eat, sleep, laugh, hike, read, ride bikes – whatever she wants to do for her birthday.

* Give her a symbol of your friendship – a friendship ring, a beautiful necklace, a sunny bouquet of friendship flowers, a poem you wrote for her or a thoughtful card. (Oooh – just found this site that helps you remember birthdays! Happybirthdaytoyou.com)

* Does she love a good book? Is she planning a summer trip where she’ll need a good book? Indulge her in some great summer reading with favorites selected by girlfriends of Girlfriendology in our Book Club books and gifts shop!

* Got a Green Thumb Girlfriend? Summer flowers and veggies are coming so why not make her garden even more beautiful with this solar-powered fountain, angel wind chimes or angel statue by Jim Shore.

* Is she a techie? Does she love her phone?! This is one of those gifts I’d love so I’m sure your techie BFF would too – iPod/iPhone speakers.
