    Would that improve my image and thus chances or will it backfire?

    Depends on how close you are.

    Don't go for multiple gifts / expensive gifts, that'll creep her out.

    Maybe one thoughtful, small gift if it's appropriate for you to get her something.

    Get her a card at most, if you're friends that should be fine.

    You could give her something like a flower or some sweets, I think that would be lovely.

    If you sense there's mutual interest/chemistry then sure, if that's what you feel like doing/the kind of thing you'd normally do - a cute little gift (especially a thoughtful one) would be sweet. Just make sure it/they're not too OTT e.g. I wouldn't spend more than £5-£10 on a girl I'd never dated personally :scrooge:

    Don't get her a gift if you're not friends. If you are friends then maybe buy her a card.
    Either way, say Happy Birthday and offer to buy her a drink or something.

    NO don't do it. I have a friend who did that and was painfully rejected. The whole school heard about it. Not nice.

    If you know the person as a friend, do it, but as a friend. But considering you're considering doing it to win them over, I wouldn't recommend it. If you're not even friends, don't do it, it's quite strange thing to do for someone you don't know.

    So a gift only if she is your friend and as a friend.

    If you like this person, get to know them a bit better for your own purposes (maybe she isn't the person you thought she was) and if you still like her, and you think she likes you (which I think is quite important), ask if she wants to go and do something together and move from there. If she isn't interested, leave it there. You can't win them all and worry about something you can't change is counter-productive. If she is interested, then great.

    Do you think workplace romance will ever work?

    Romance anyplace, even deep space or a dessert island can work out just fine, if the people are right for each other and go into it in the right spirit
