18 gifts ideas for your stud/stem/tomboy girlfriend

If you have a tomboy girlfriend who is a more masculine "stud" or "stem" woman, you are in the right place to find a great gift idea.

Here's a list of gift ideas to make your stud/stem/tomboy girlfriend feel understood and appreciated:

1. Cook them their favorite meal wearing an outfit of their choice

Nothing works up an appetite like some eye candy. Throw on that outfit they always compliment you in (or let them choose!) and whip up a favorite meal in the kitchen.

2. Classic Watch

Find your tomboy girlfriend a perfect timepiece in the men's or women's jewelry section.

Go for the classic big face watch in a neutral color such as black, tan, brown, or gray.

Tip: A leather watch is an easy gift since it won't require a trip to the jeweler's to get it fitted/links removed.

Oliver Coen has a beautiful tan leather watch with a white face (that would look good on just about anyone).

Where to shop?

We recommend checking out Oliver Coen for super classy watches under $200. Another top recommendation is the Macy's jewelry department which boasts a large selection of men's and women's watches ranging anywhere from $30-$600+.

3. Pajamas

Check out Nordstrom or Macy's sale section for some great pajama deals. Go for the loose fitting, soft fleece pants in the winter/fall and basketball shorts in the summer/spring. Pair it with a nice gender neutral t-shirt and you are golden.

4. Favorite sports team merchandise

You can get anything with her team on it - hats, jerseys, blankets, mugs, key chains, face masks, etc. Make sure you get the right team!

Here's a few places to shop:

Bonus points if you pair the sports gear with tickets to a game!

5. Custom made bracelet (or anything custom made)

(Tip: Check out Etsy for unique hand made products!)

6. Tickets to a show or event

7. Shoe organizer

If your bae is a sneaker head, give her the fitting gift of organization with a shoe rack. This shows her that you support her sneaker obsession even if you fully don't understand it.

Where to cop one? Check out Ikea or Target for an affordable shoe organizer.

8. Plan a romantic night out

Either plan something that take ya'll out of the house or plan a date night at home. Bring out the nice dishes and candles to set to the mood!

9. Rent her favorite sports car for the evening

10. Experience driving an exotic sports car at the race track

Groupon always has a good deal for driving exotic cars. Check for a local one near you or align it with an upcoming baecation trip you have planned.

11. Cozy house slippers

12. Sunglasses and a new hat

This is a perfect duo and so perfect if she loves to wear hats. A perfect summer birthday gift would be adding in a new pair of shades to go with her hat!

BONUS: Reebok has high quality sunglasses and you can score a special discount by shopping with my exclusive affiliate link to shop!

13. Get their car detailed

Proceed with caution: only do this if they are 100% cool with you driving their car... otherwise, play it safe and see the next gift idea.

14. Gift card to their fave car wash

15. Car wash kit

16. Staycation

Nothing beats a night alone with bae and not having to make the bed the morning after. Switch up the scenery and book a night or two at a local hotel. Bonus points for ordering room service and enjoying breakfast in bed.

17. Couples or private massage

Another great one to check Groupon for a deal. If you don't want to leave the house, print out a "I owe you" voucher for you to give her an at-home massage at her time of choice.

18. Computer/tech accessories

Having a second screen is a MUST for those who work from home or do their own blogging at home.

Make her work from home life better and gift her a new computer monitor, gaming mouse, or cool back lit keyboard.

TIP: mechanical keyboards are not only for gamers - they look and sound cool for anyone! You can get dope keyboards with rainbow lighting for under $50 at Best Buy!
