When it comes to giving gifts, women can sometimes be a hard code to crack. Whether it’s your wife, girlfriend, daughter, or just a work colleague, you can rack your brain for hours on end and not come up with something that your special lady will like. With thousands of gift options on the market, it’s difficult to know what to choose.
Don’t worry; you are not alone. Many people have this dilemma every single day. The good news is that getting a gift for that special lady doesn’t have to be an impossible task.
Before Getting the Gift
Before you buy a gift, be clear on the purpose of the present. If it’s a Valentine’s Day gift, you know that a romantic gift is your best bet. An anniversary might require something more nostalgic and thoughtful. A matriculation or graduation gift should ideally be something that congratulates her and celebrates the achievement.
However, if there’s no particular event and you just want to put a smile on your lady’s face, you’re free to choose any gift that will do just that. Make sure your gift is appropriate – the present that is perfect for a girlfriend may be inappropriate for just a friend.
Remember, no two women are the same. Each has her own unique tastes and preferences. That’s why you should think about her interests before making a purchase. Has she mentioned any particular items she would love to get? What’s on her bucket list? If you don’t know these details, ask someone who’s closest to her, such as a best friend, spouse or work colleague.
Now that you have considered her interests, here are six amazing gifts that the woman in your life will love to receive.
You’ve probably heard it said that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” Well, flowers are not far behind. Have you noticed that almost every event in a woman’s life is celebrated with flowers? That’s because flowers are a delicate mix of colors and fragrance that help to express your feelings toward someone. The great thing about giving flowers as a gift is that there are so many options to choose from, and each of them has a symbolic meaning.
For instance, if you want to celebrate your friendship, daisies and freesia are perfect for that purpose. The yellow rose is perhaps the most common friendship flower, however, as it signifies the beauty and warmth of friendship. Other options to mark friendship are yellow, orange, lavender or white roses as they represent happiness, joy, and togetherness.
If you are not yet a couple, yet you wish to express your desire, go for lilacs, birds of paradise, or a purple rose.
If you are already in a relationship however, arrange for a birthday flowers delivery service, and surprise her at work or home with a bouquet of red tulips or red roses to express your passion toward her. With a lovely fragrance and beautiful adornment, you can let someone know the depth of your love without saying a word. On top of that, add a card or a handwritten note that you know your sweetheart will love.
Just like flowers, jewelry has been a favorite of women for centuries. From pendants with a chain, necklaces, brooches, bracelets, and earrings, you are spoiled for choice when it comes to jewelry.
When you give someone a gift of jewelry, it lets the person know that you care a great deal for them. In turn, the person will think of you each time they put on the piece. The beautiful thing about purchasing jewelry is that, unlike other gifts that decrease in value, jewelry often appreciates as time goes by. Thus, a simple gift of a necklace can last for years and still be as precious. In fact, many people pass on jewelry as family heirlooms.
Furthermore, you can find custom pieces that match your loved one’s personality, style, and interests. You can order jewelry be made with the materials you want, whether it is gold, silver, or precious stones. Some companies also allow you to personalize the piece by having the person’s name or initials engraved. You can even customize it with a date, word, or phrase that means something to the two of you.
Some people think that ladies only love clothes, flowers, and jewelry. However, ladies also have a soft spot for gadgets. In this digital age, devices make our lives more efficient and more comfortable. The best way to show someone you love them is to make their lives easier. That’s why tech gadgets are a great option for the lady in your life. Fortunately, there are many tech gadgets available for every budget and every preference. Business Insider’s top picks for women include:
- A beautiful piece of smart jewelry that tracks fitness
- A pair of wireless headphones
- A Kindle Paperwhite e-book reader
- A fun instant camera
- A pretty wireless phone charger
Other awesome gift ideas include smart mugs, Bluetooth speakers, tech carry-on luggage, and wireless earbuds.
Subscription boxes have quickly become a favorite among gift options for shoppers. The reason is simple. Unlike one-time gifts, subscription boxes keep giving year-round. They are, in essence, the gift that keeps on giving. When you purchase a subscription box for someone, you are letting them know that you care about them, not just for a moment, but again and again.
There are subscription boxes for nearly every interest you can imagine, from beauty, grocery, toys, pets, snacks, clothing and lifestyle. For instance, a self-care package containing essential oils, body products, and snacks will help a lady pamper herself.
A subscription box that delivers dog food each week would mean the world to a lady with dogs. Decide how often your subscription package will be delivered, whether it is weekly, monthly or quarterly. You can always change your subscription box package whenever you want to.
One of the best gifts you can give a woman is a spa treatment. Nothing says “I care for you and want you to feel special,” like a spa treatment does.
This kind of gift is especially beneficial for women who work hard and don’t have the time to take care of themselves. At a spa, they can get treatments including manicures, pedicures, facials, and massages. By the time a woman leaves the spa, she’ll feel refreshed both inside and out. This gift is perfect for you mom, wife, or even your daughter. If you have the money, book an entire day for them. Otherwise, book a specific treatment or package.
Which woman doesn’t want to smell like a million bucks? A well-scented perfume does more than help a woman smell nice, it gives a woman confidence and lifts her mood. So if you are wondering which gift your lady would like, a nice bottle of perfume is a no-brainer.
Choose a perfume that reflects her personality. A calm, laid-back person might like a toned-down fragrance, while a loud and vibrant person might want to go with something more intense. The great thing about perfume is that even if the person has other fragrances, she can still use the one you buy occasionally.
Buy a perfume that is high-quality. Some examples include Jo Malone Velvet Rose & Oud Cologne Intense, Calvin Klein Euphoria, Diptyque Eau Capitale, Montblanc Femme Individuelle, Vera Wang Princess, or Tom Ford Velvet Orchid.
