I think that can be resolved by invoking the rule: "It's only illegal
if you get caught." It's completely inconceivable that the copyright
holder(s) would find out about your private gift to your girlfriend
(unless she tried to sell it after a messy breakup, perhaps...), so
you are really only answerable to your conscience.
