But there's a catch...the gift can only be given online, very long and extremely long story that I'm not gonna go into right now, but unfortunately, that's how it is.

I've already gone through the basics: Steam game, gift card, crunchyroll sub...nope, none of them quite fit the bill. I'm looking for something simple, yet unique. I have a few ideas i'm toying with, like commissioning a piece of art, or a flash video...but I'd like to see if I'm overlooking any other possible ideas.

and btw, it's for a girl's birthday.

Thanks!

I mean, there are quite a things needed to be known.

Have you thought of writing a short story/poem...... some people like that type of thing. (Sorry with little to no knowledge I couldn't think good).

What more info would help?

I thought about a poem too, but I've never tried writing a poem in my entire life, not sure what results that could have

Poems are all about expressionism similar to art, everyone indirectly has different ways of writing. Though they use the same rules, you can chose different words than others that make it just as good as the greats. (haikus are a form of a japanese poem, even though people kinda put poems as a cheesy gift. Its the little things that mean a lot....)

What info I mean is like what she likes. You know those examples of gifts where no one knows anything about the other. Where it ends up like a sweater. Other wise i'd make a joke to send a picture of a sweater.... unless you want to.

How about by singing to her? You can send her a video.
I think that will be sweet.

I don't think a poem is a cheesy gift, but then that's me.

Anyways, yeah, that's why I don't like the whole gift shopping thing, I never know what to get people, unless they point out something they'd want to get. Anyways, let's see...likes or interests: anime, video games, cats, language.

I'll post more if I recall anything else that stands out...and could help.

As intriguing as that idea sounds, I don't think I could pull through with it
