Girlfriend's Birthday - how to celebrate her day? Ideas??

On my birthday she woke me up (appropriately dressed) with a champagne and strawberry breakfast, - then whisked me off to one of the UK's top spa's.  We spent the day together being massaged, chilling out in the massive outdoor jacuzzi steam baths, eating lovely food amongst other things, - absolutely amazing day.
 
Now it's her birthday coming up in less than a couple of months... - how the hell am I going to match this?!  Anyone got any good ideas???  BTW - her birthday is on a Sunday!

    Probs too late for a hot air balloon flight.......Going shopping and spending lots of money on them usually does the trick!

    Just make sure you don't do what I did for my last gf's last birthday - took her out to a very expensive fancy restaurant and when I went to pay my card got declined for insufficient funds, so she ended up having to pay, LOL

    part of the present.... effort is required but little money.
     
    - buy a photo book
    - find a collection of photo's of you 2 over a long period of time (facebook, myspace, or any other photo's)
    - organise start to finish (chronological order)
    - stick in book
    - each page write something, preferably rhyming with the next page obviously about the pair of you and the times you had in the photo's. (so it reads like a rhyming story about the day you met, up until the present and possibly the future)
     
    effort > price.
     
    anyone can splash money around. Dont get me wrong splash money around as well, but mix it up a little.
     
    its a start...

    maybe you could do the breakfast thing, and then arrange to meet with all her friends later in the day, obivously to show off all the bling that you just bought her in the shops....
     
    oh if your not engaged yet....propose, that oughta do it :D

    the photo idea is a really good one, girls tend to love their men who put some thought into things rather than just a standard present.
    Also another idea is if you have something meaningful to the two of you then frame it or something, as an idea  it is mine and my girlfriends anniversary coming up and i still have the cinema ticket from the first time we went out, so was going to put that in a frame for her, cheesey maybe but ime girls like a bit of thought

    I wouldnt do the 'thoughtful' and 'romantic' style homemade gift unless you love her, can backfire...

    Have a look for weekend breaks on lastminute.com for some ideas, there's a whole world out there.

    If all else fails then go for the old faithful of breakfast in bed, a day out with a nice meal and some bars then a night in a hotel for the inevitable birthday sex.

    Alternatively Think outside the box... save a few quid and give her her marching orders a few days before... Then beg forgiveness after the date and she'll no doubt take you back and as the ig day is gone, No present required! EPIC WIN!

    Worked for me last year (coincdentally of course,although it was me who got my marching orders) and conveniently we broke up again last week, my turn to give the orders... her birthday is next week...... All round Win i'd say  \o/ Wooooo!

    I did this kinda thing often and when I finished with her she was like oh I thought you loved me you did this n this n this etc blub blub. Guess it gives the wrong idea.

    This! 
    Could come off as extremely needy/clingy and could also come off as "cheap".
    Personally, I'd WAY rather receive a thoughtful and romantic style gift compared to say an expensive shirt or whatever as its far more long term. Hey hoe.

    Tell her to pack a suitcase and drive to the airport, look for cheap flights there or last minute.com and dont tell her where youre going. Do something spontaneous that she will remember.

    The weekend / day away.. - i'm just wondering if a lot of time is 'wasted' by all that travelling... - although thinking on it.. - i guess that's all part of the fun isn't it... hmmmm....
    That's not a bad idea about the Ritz and top hotel...
    Nath - no i like that cinema ticket idea, - it's good, - makes a change from the usual photo...
    And i'm not worried about giving her the wrong impression, - as I love her!!

    Ritz is alright, but for the same price and same level of quality, the Savoy would be a better shout (imo) especially after the 100m Refurb they just had. Would be best to book it now, as my family booked a table for 6 at Christmas and the earliest we could get was mid April time! 
     
    Also if you fancy restaurants Simpsons on strand do an amazing buffet style breakfast.
