Hi Taylor! Aw, we love helping guys shop for gifts, especially "just because" gifts! I figured you wanted to give your girl something nice, but not break your bank, so I kept the budget under $120. If you're feeling especially romantic, consider giving her more than one of these. You'll melt her heart!
1 - Dogeared Gold Dipped Good Luck Reminder Necklace ($81) A sweet good luck charm she can wear before big events, including sports matches.
2 - Keiko Mecheri Mulholland Eau de Parfum ($115) This summer scent is fresh and youthful.
3 - Shakespeare's Love Sonnets ($19) A classic way to tell her you care.
4 - J.Crew Vibrant Paisley Scarf ($60) Appeal to her fashion-sense!
5 - philosophy falling in love Gift Set ($85) Let her pamper herself with a romantic fragrance.
6 - Kate Spade Sparks Fly Idiom Bangle ($32) Remind her of how you feel when you're with her!
