Birthday Gift for the Girlfriend...

I've been dating my girlfriend now for over two years, this is by far the longest relationship I have ever been in and I'm struggling to decide on seemingly the most simple thing, what do I get her for her birthday? I am having a hard time of thinking of what she would want and so I thinking of turning to either her family for advice or just giving up on keeping the gift a secret and asking her what she wants. As you'll see in my options below, I already bought something for her, but it was not supposed to be a birthday gift, just something that I wanted and she agreed was cool and so I decided to buy one for her as well.

Do you think I should just count that as the gift, even though it was quite cheap, I've bought her something similar before, and when I told her I would buy it for her I did not intend for it to be a birthday gift?

Should I ask her family what they think she'd want? She is quite close with her mother and I think if I asked her she'd be able to suggest something good that maybe my girlfriend even might not suggest.

Should I ask her? Even though I really like keeping gifts secret from her because it drives her crazy which is pretty fun.

Or should I just try my best to think of something on my own? Given that I've been dating her for two years you'd think I'd be able to come up with something.
