Well first, what does she *like*? Are there things she's in to that you can do something with?
Also dude, to be honest, even if it's not good, if you make something arty/creative/whatever for her, she'll probably appreciate it anyway; the effort will mean infinitely more than the skill.
joeyhops8804y@Zaphod65 She's really into art. She's going to an art school, has innumerable books on art, art theory, and art history.
A couple months back I made her something in Photoshop. It wasn't the best looking but she did love it. I know that anything I put the time and effort into creating she'll probably appreciate, but I just figure that if I'm going to put in the effort, it might as well be *good*.
@joehop67 do you know who her favourite artist is? That's a good place to start.
I read about this deep learning algorithm that could take one picture's style and apply it on another one. If you found out how to use this and rent a server for the time of calculations you could create something like both of you drawn in her favorite artist's style. I'm pretty sure she would appreciate that ;)
Maybe do something with an Image and Steering behavior, let us say you have a 400x600 image of her. Create a dot for each Pixel in the corresponding color and put them at the center of the screen. Now make them move to their position while drawing a line in their color. Maybe do the moving with a Physics-based model, so they overshoot, maybe orbit their point, etc.
I don't know im not an artist
A small android app is never a bad choice. I've made a small memory game with tiles (stole parts of the code from web, cuz i'm a beginner). Every tile was a small image of her/me/both of us, and as a backround i have put a nice little message for her that was revealed bit by bit.
It didn't look really good, but it served it's purpose. I've never seen her more excited regarding gifts
