Not sure about this sentence...


New Member

So I have my first oral exam in Korean tomorrow and this is one of the possible questions:
여자(남자) 친구에게 생일선물을 하려고 하는데 뭐 좋을까요?
I'm not really sure if I fullly understand the sentence. I know it has something to do with girl/boyfriend and birthday gifts... My first thought was something like: "What would you like your gf/bf to buy for your birthday"...? Then again, 에게 indicates that the action happens to that person. So is it more like: "What is a good birthday gift to get/buy for your girlfriend/boyfriend?" I guess I have a problem with the 하려고 하는데 part in the middle... Help would be appreciated!
