Let’s be honest, boxes of chocolate and flowers are boring! Their popularity has already faded. But you can put a unique spin on this traditional gift idea with something like a bouquet made out of doughnuts instead of actual flowers that will only wither away. With a creative donut bouquet for your sweet-toothed lady, you can never go wrong! These little doughnut bundles are making a boom these days! And can you blame them? They are a fresh and extraordinary gift idea, perfect for people who love sweet goodies.

There are all kinds of interesting ideas when it comes to creating doughnut bouquets. You don’t even have to do it yourself. You can simply find an online service that can arrange a fancy donut bouquet for you, ideal to spoil your girl’s cravings. To pick the perfect bouquet, consider your loved one’s preferences and taste.

For instance, if your lady is a chocolate lover, you can pick a Nutella donut bouquet with a giant Nutella syringe inside. Sounds rich, and yummy too, right? If your girl’s favourite colour is pink, in addition to doughnuts, you can also add different candies in this colour. Don’t stop at just doughnuts and feel free to upgrade the bouquet with lollies, musk sticks, or rainbow sour straps. Wake up the child in your girl with a cute edible bouquet and watch her happy and satisfied face. At the end of the day, it’s her birthday, and she deserves to be spoiled.

Are you worried that doughnuts and candies aren’t as romantic? Don’t go for the classic roses yet. Instead of adding fresh flowers, you can enrich the bouquet with something more permanent like faux roses. Use them as a decoration to give the bouquet a romantic note and kill two birds with one stone.

Finally, don’t forget to add a personalised message to the bundle to express your love. Your loved one will be pleasantly surprised by this unique gift.

I am certain your better half thinks like that too. Especially if she is the refined type, or she simply loves to spice up her outfits with a piece of good jewellery. That being said, what gift would be more unique than personalised jewellery? Go for a simple silver necklace with her initials or the date of your first kiss if your lady appreciates minimalism more. Or go for a big diamond necklace if diamonds are her best friend. You can also do your research and find out what her birthstone is if she’s into astrology and get her a piece of jewellery that incorporates it.

Not only will it be the perfect touch to complete any outfit, but jewellery has a strong sentimental value for people. One more reason to surprise her with jewellery.

If your dearest is not much the office type, but she would rather sit next to her window with a cup of warm tea and read books all day long, then a book basket is the way to win her heart once again and also win her birthday gifts collection. A bookworm has never enough of new books. Choose a couple of titles she would love to read, or buy that new collection she was talking about. Wrap them up into a nice wooden basket with a bow in her favourite colour. Add some chocolate or wine in – and you’re all set for her birthday.

There are a lot more great ideas that can go into this list – from elegant lingerie to a fragrance that’s hard to resist like Van Cleef and Arpels perfume, make-up kit from her favourite brand, or a nice phone case or new seat covers for her car. Think about what your beloved would prefer. Make sure the gift is authentic and impressive enough. Wake up the creativity inside of you, and brainstorm new ideas to make your better half’s birthday memorable.
