wow I am meant to know her style aswell???

Oh no
haha surely you have an idea.

Her birthday's going to be been and gone by the time you get her something. I agree with the other person to get her a watch (not from argos lol).

Some ideas:

I rrrrrrrrrreally wouldn't buy her clothes. Just, don't do it. But her a piece of very pretty jewelry, I recommend (very strongly) a necklace and also, if it can have it done, have an inscription put on it like both of your initials L.R & T.S/ L & T you get the point. I think that's what she'd really want. Also, use some other suggestions on here to actually make the day special and romantic.

If she has a lot of watches, she must like them!
She also has a lot of clothes, I imagine, so therefore a new watch will be the same value to her as new clothes...
Are the watches she currently owns cheap ones or nice ones? Are they similar in style or all very different? It should give you an idea of what to look for.
Try looking at swatch watches - they do lots of different ones and are quite nice.

I just think that if you've ruled out jewellery but want something she can often use to remember you, a watch is a good idea. Clothes are very...meh. If you get her a nice dress she won't be able to wear it that often, and it's likely to get messy/too big/too small faster than a watch will change.

I just think a watch is quite personal and quite a nice gift which really does last for a very long time and can be worn every day. Maybe pair it with something like a really nice silk scarf?

How about these two together:

http://www.asos.com/Dg/Dg-Diamante-L...=-1&clr=Silver

and

http://www.asos.com/Asos/Asos-Studde...t=-1&clr=Black

Trust me she likes the jacket and she needs it for school as well.

Do you think maybe the watch looks a bit tacky?

Thanks

It's not a hassle actually. Go to a few jewellers, pick something out ask them there and then if they do engraving - they will do - say what you want, pick it up either the same day or the next day. Actually very simple and she'll love it. In fact it sounds like that's what she's been hinting at.

I think you should buy her a bunch of flowers. Nearly every girl loves flowers, and maybe get ones that are her favourite colour. Also, nearly all girls love teddy bears. Me To You bears are a personal favourite of mine, maybe a large one with a heart or something similiar on it.

Thanks for the idea. Maybe next year.
