    Birthday gift idea for a new acquaintance?

    I'm attending a very casual birthday party for a new acquaintance soon. I was invited by our mutual friend that is organizing the event. I don't know her well (the birthday girl), but have hung out with her a few times, always in a group setting. I doubt most folks at this event are even getting her a gift, so I don't want to get her anything that draws attention to the fact that nobody else got her anything... just something small, cute, or funny -- or maybe nothing if it is too soon since I don't know her that well yet -- but would like to know her better. A few details about her... she is into photography, she runs and is training for a marathon (we are all in a running club), she drinks beer -- a funny beer mug maybe? Hell I don't know, if I had a great idea I wouldn't be asking here... lol.

    If you are interested in her romantically I would strongly advice against getting her a gift.

    This isn't a gift for a date, it is for a birthday party. I don't see what your other post about dating has to do with this... and I'm not talking about flowers but something funny (like the beer mug idea), but better than the beer mug idea.

    Anybody else?

    I'd get her a funny card, If you feel l like you want to buy her soemthing you can throw in some lotto tickets or a postcard of a beautiful photograph since you said she likes photography

    a funny card is perfect. maybe a cheap gift card to starbuck's or something. it's simple and innocent.

    Definitely a funny card. I think a beer mug would be cute, too... It's not over-the-top and is pretty cheap. Ghost's idea of a gift card to starbucks was a good one.

    maybe she will invite you to share the card with her. you get your money back and a possible friend or date.
