I thought you said it was your girlfriend. You're supposed to know about this person, care about them, and know things like this. That's normal. Doing that to strangers is where stalker comes in.

we do know eachother it would just make it feel awkward and make her suspicous if i ask you know?
Relationships ARE awkward at the start - thats the part where you learn about each other. Don't ask what she wants, ask what she likes -- then find something that fits.

(sigh)
Do your best to help her feel-right. That means being a good friend and trying to understand why she is dysfunctional like that.

The gift is not going to fix her head - talk to her about stuff instead.

well this isn't to help her feel better this just a random gift of affection
W'ref "dude are u nuts She will think im a stalker!!!!!" and the comment which you deleted, talk to her first before getting any "random" gift.

Gifts should be thoughtful and appropriate, else people wonder what the hell someone is doing giving them one. Affection isn't always felt if people don't know each other and "random" can lead to someone thinking "what are they up to here?"

Dude we know eachother and have been going out for months she likes little things that show her i love her and if i ask her she will get suspicious See what i mean so i am her boyfriend but i just dont want to make her suspicous.

I said talk to her (not ask her).
That is to understand her well enough that you know what she'd like, and much better than some random-internet-people...

Maybe a compass or a flint-firestarter?

If you want to make something I suggest you either go for something more artistic than useful crafted out of wood (maybe a pendent or a picture frame), or something more functional than artistic out of a more robust material (camping backpack).
But anything I suggest will be relatively generic. You know her better and know the message you want to transmit with your gift.
