Happy Birthday! Our Fantasy Gifts For Jennifer Garner

04/17/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Isn’t Jennifer Garner just so lovable? She’s beautiful, a doting mother, successful actress and admits to making mistakes just like the rest of us. Remember when she dropped a diamond ring that husband Ben Affleck gifted to her down a drain? Whoops! To celebrate her 35th birthday we came up with our own fantasy gift list for her. Tell us: what dream gifts you would get Jennifer Garner for her birthday?

1. Now that Jen’s a mom, she spends a lot more of her time on the playground than the red carpet. But as summer approaches, she could be stylish and functional in Velvet’s easy jersey dress . Or what about this See by Chloe silk dress or this

for a romantic dinner out with Ben?

2. Jennifer is an active supporter of various charities, so why not give her something that gives back? She could accessorize her new dresses with this
“target=”_blank”> St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital “Hope” necklace
or a
“target=”_blank”> Presents For Purpose multi-layered heart necklace

3. Jennifer is rarely without beautiful daughter Violet, so how about
“target=”_blank”> an “I Love Mommy” tee by Choice Shirts
or Glamajama’s matching “I Love Mommy” top and bottoms for her constant companion.

4. Why not some adorable flats? These Sigerson Morrison red patent skimmers, green Poetic Licence flats or these
“target=”_blank”> Delman’s black patent leather slingbacks
would be perfect for running after Violet. And
“target=”_blank”> Loeffler Randall’s metallic ballerinas
would add instant glam to even the most casual look.

Love her! She should get all of the above – shouldn’t we all?. Happy B’day!

j on

i’d wrap up some crest whitening strips in a pretty bow and give them to her.

jennifer in tulsa on

I agree w/AnnieM….she should get it all; everyone deserves to be pampered on their birthday!
I’m thinking “j” must be a very unhappy person.

Leigh on


you have some serious self confidence issues. she is a beautiful, caring, successful woman. and you are going to pick out something like saying she needs crest strips. i feel really sad for you, to live such an unfulfilled life that you need to pick out the negatives (that don’t even really exist, because her teeth look better than most people in america) i think she looks gorgeous and deserves all the happiness that life can offer to her.

meagan on

i agree that “j” must be having a pretty bad day to say anything negative about jen. she’s an amazing person and should get anything and everything for her birthday!!

tracey on

I love Jennifer Garner, I think she is one of the true roll models left in Hollywood. What more can you ask for w/a gorgeous and loving husband like Ben and a beautiful daughter.

J never has anything nice to say in her posting; she just raidates w/negativity and anger. When ther was one about Halle Berry she went off like there was no tomorrow.

j on

leigh, you know nothing about me. you know nothing about jennifer garner except for what the hollywood machine wants to to know. get over yourself. her teeth look yellow in this picture!!! it doesn’t mean i think she’s a bad person or a bad mom or anything except–THAT HER TEETH COULD USE SOME WHITENING. relax.

Elda on

Gosh i wonder why she is glowing (could it be that wonderful man she is married to)? Happy Birthday Jennifer!!!

meagan on

J – jen is gorgeous enough that she doesn’t to whiten her teeth. i guess you just don’t have that natural beauty that you feel you have to do that to look good

j on

tracey–i never commented on halle berry????
meagan, i wish i could post my picture for you, sweetie. ;)

the first thing i noticed about jen from this pic was her teeth. there’s no hate, so stop looking for it everybody!

HAVE A GREAT DAY! SMILE!! (even if your teeth aren’t white!!)

Alice on

There is nothing more annoying than a catty nit picky woman. Thanks for reminding me of that J.

tracey on

J, actually you did comment on Halle Berry and I have copied and pasted it. Look back at the April 11 blog of her.

YOu are just very envious and hateful!

anything for publicity, right halle? it’s not enough to just do it as your JOB, for a ROLE, you have to announce it first. just like all your bad relationships, just like your suicide…get OVER yourself. i can think of 10 more beatiful black women than her right now who are quiet and classy and just go about their business and yet still get their picture taken all the time. that looks like an awesome dress, maybe someone ELSE could actually do it justice!?!

meagan on

j – i wish you could too so i could tell you what you need to improve on

deena on

can someone explain the difference of all you hating on j and j hating on the celebs?? not everyone has to like the same people or have the same opinion you know!!

enigma on

Just a thought, but perhaps j’s monitor isn’t balanced correctly in color tone because Jennifer’s teeth look very nice and very normal in color on my screen….??? I could be wrong though!?! I think Drew Berrymore and Kirsten Dunst have yellow teeth. But, really, it doesn’t matter…

And, Elda, you are right….Jennifer has a lovely glow about her…it’s called being in love with life!!

Cheers and Happy Birthday Jennifer!!

faith on

ARE THERE 2 J’S??? because there WAS a “J” that commented on halle berry last week–

either way, whether this is a different “J” or not, you guys need to stop trashing him/her. take the comments for what they are–OPINIONS–and stop taking them personally, people! seroiusly!!

i swear, haven’t you guys realized that these blogs would BORING if everyone said the same thing??!

KT from Cda on

Are they sure this is Jen? It doesn’t look a thing like her. It doesn’t look like the same Jen that we all know and love. Maybe it’s me!

Mary on

Uh, yeah, why in the world does this not look like Jennifer Gardner, KT? I think it IS you.
