Normally, I'm never one to give painted models as gifts. Firstly, I think the idea is a little stupid. Secondly, I wouldn't consider myself a good enough painter to actually make it a nice gift to receive. Nevertheless, my loving girlfriend has recently been taking an interest in my little-dudes-with-guns hobby and asked if I could build and paint her a model.
But there is a caveat, of course. Genetically engineered superhumans with rapid fire rocket launchers isn't really her cup of tea. Nor are plague-infested daemons or levitating aztec frogs. So I'm casting the net wide on this one. Fantasy might be a better bet than 40k, LOTR might even be quite good as we're both huge fans of the films.
If you were to build and paint a model for your loved one? What would it be?
What girl does not want her knight in shining armour? Of course its a shameless plug for my number one army - Brets!! Couple a knight on horseback with a damsel on horseback (painted with your girlfriend's hair color, of course) and you might have a winner!
Do her a nice vampire count. All girls love slushy vampire stuff.
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
Pink horror! Cos it's pink

The "knight in shining armour" and his damsel actually sounds like a (corny, yet) pretty good idea.
Otherwise, I'd probably look towards your gf for some ideas. Is she a hippy/free-spirit? Try Wood Elves. Is she sinister/domineering (which, let's be honest, is attractive )? Try Dark Elves or Slaanesh. Etc. Choose something that at least has some semblance to her.
The Lahmian vampire models are pretty good.
OR you could be really brave and go for the Ogre female manhunter model. And if that's not going far enough, sculpt/convert a huge skaven breeding-mother . "You practically spew the runts out as fast as they come in!". Yeah, don't, really. You'll be lonelier than me before you can even begin to form the words "It's a joke", "I'm sorry" or the classic "But I love you!"
I hope that was helpful

Goblins and snotlings can be pretty cute.

Lelith Hesperax (40k Dark Eldar HQ)... very feminine, very strong and looks like it would be a kick to paint
