A: What do you bring for her?
B: I bring a table for her.
- I think it should be "bring to her" is better, right?

Thanks a lot!

    I think it sounds better how you have it originally.

    However, I think it would sound even better if you put it in the past tense.
    A: What have you brought for her?
    B: I brought a table for her.

    I think Twin may well be right, but it's really hard to say without context. What table? Something you drew in Excel or a thing to put your coffee on?

    I would use "I brought her a table," which would avoid the to/for issue and I think would sound natural enough.

    But please try to offer context. How can we know if we're offering good advice when you only give us fragments?
