Alice and Edward together had created a CD of Edward playing the piano, including Bella's lullaby.  The planning of the birthday party for Bella was also Alice's doing, spite of Bella's insistence that she didn't want to make a big deal out of her birthday.  She's disgruntled because she's now older than Edward, who will be 17 forever as a vampire, and she can't convince him to change her into one as well to stop the aging process.  However, Alice, who has a natural gift for fashion and entertaining, refuses to be swayed by Bella's negative attitude, and has the party for the grumpy birthday girl anyway.

Alice was having a party for Bella and she helped make a CD of Edward's compositions that he wrote for Bella. Bella did not want overly expensive gifts so she wanted to help Edward instead.

Alice gift to Bella was both organizing the party and helping to make a cd of Edwards composition and the lullaby he wrote her. The gift she was not able to open was the cd which Edward showed her when he snuck in her room later that night.  Alice also knows Bella doesn't like accepting big expensive gifts so the best route to go was helping Edward out with the cd.
