My ex-girlfriend once bought me a t-shirt in the beginning of the relationship. It was hanging in the back of the closet with the tags on waiting to be returned as soon as we break up (which was inevitable, but not because of the t-shirt). I still appreciated it a lot, she had no way of knowing that I wouldn't wear anything less than a polo shirt outside the house. And there's no such thing for me as a nice
t-shirt. I hope that nothing like that would happen to your Dior suit or gf.
On a side note, I'd try to do everything to get her to drop the idea. Not because I wouldn't like the suit or wouldn't appreciate the gesture. I just think such a present would put too much pressure on me to, you know, do the right thing and marry her.
