What do females want for their birthdays this year? Particularly for a milestone birthday.

Attention.

Me, presents - nah.....

Just some acknowledgement and a bit of a fuss.

Depends on finances, that could be a meal out, could be invite her friends round for a meal, could be just you let her laze about for the day while you wait on her.

Whatever sort of attention she's into.

And a card. Not an ecard, an actual cardboard one.

Pretty good ideas

She's crazy into cooking/baking at the moment (not helping the waist line) so leaning towards something in that area but she seems to have everything she could need (and that will fit into the kitchen)

Get her a gym membership, it's both practical and shows you care about how she looks ;)

How about something like a cooking class that you can both do - Reckon you would score points with that:

LOL.
Tell her that she is overweight on her birthday? Nice

Good idea about the cooking school, shame theres none in our area.

Not sure about the overweight thing, might get a black eye in return

Has to be a bouquet of flowers plus dinner at a cosy but expensive restaurant. All of this accompanied by compliments on her appearance and a bit of canoodling! This should be PLAN A!

Instead of trying to work out what to get her. 

The morning of her birthday, give her some roses with a card. Mention in the card that she needs to be ready at say 4pm. 

Take her clothes shopping in the late afternoon. Then a romantic dinner somewhere.

I could see this going very very wrong :P, I wouldn't be game enough to give a gym membership to my wife!!

Get her a bunch of vouchers or a visa card or similar and take her on a shopping spree
