It never fails, the holidays come up before you are prepared for them and then it’s all about the last-minute shopping rush. Break the cycle and get some shopping done now before everyone else gets started. There are so many great ideas to choose from for the women in your life. Let’s take a look at some ideas to get you in the shopping mood.
Gift Idea #1 – Shoes Always Make A Great Gift
Do you know a horse lover? Cowgirl boots are a sure-fire way to her heart. They can be worn with jeans or a dress. Perfect for the woman who doesn’t mind getting a little dirty or who likes to get all dolled up for some square dancing. Is your sister a runner? Running shoes would be a great idea for her. No matter what she is into, there are shoes for everyone.
Gift Idea #2 – Women Love To Pamper Themselves
What woman doesn’t love a little pampering? One great idea for her is a gift basket. You can create one or buy one pre-made. Make sure it includes luxury items such as bubble bath, bath bombs, lotions, eye masks and more. If you are getting her a few gifts, you can always stay on theme such as doing horse-shaped soaps for the horse lover you also bought cowgirl boots for.
Gift Idea #3 – Pre-Plan A Date Night Or A Trip
Whether she is your wife or your mother, she will love to spend more time with you. Purchase tickets to an event she wants to attend—a concert for a band she loves or anything else the two of you can do together.
If you want to go all out for this gift, you could also plan a vacation or just a weekend getaway. Weekend getaway ideas include a place she wants to see but you just haven’t gotten there yet—a place that holds a special meaning for you both. Maybe she really wants to try this great restaurant she heard about a few hours away.
Whatever you plan, she not only gets the enjoyment of the gift but also gets to share an experience with you.
Gift Idea #4 – Video Games, Yes Even For Women
Look, we know many people think video games are more of a guy thing, but trust me. There are female gamers and more so casual players. Pick up a game you can play together, whether on the same couch or miles away. Playing games are great for those who can’t be close together because you can play them together, chat, and interact, just like if you were in the same room. Playing them side by side gives you something fun to do on a lazy Sunday morning or a night in.
Gift Idea #5 – Winter Accessories For Those Upcoming Cold Months
Winter hats, scarves, and mittens are always a welcomed gift. You can shop online or in-store for items that are mass-produced. You can also find someone who knits or crochets who can make you a custom piece or set for your gift recipient. Websites are a great place to start when looking for someone who can make the winter accessory you want. Keep in mind that if you go the handmade route, you may pay a little more. It is handmade after all. The great thing about handmade is how you can customize the items with specific colors, yarn, and more. She will love a gift that is just for her.
Gift Idea #6 – Still Can’t Decide On The Perfect Gift?
If you find you still can’t decide on the perfect gift for some of the women in your life, there is still hope! Gift cards with a handwritten note or a special flower can be a wonderful gift for just about anyone. Consider getting her a gift card to a spa or to her favorite store so she can find just the perfect item. She may also love a gift card to a special restaurant or dessert place she can meet up with friends to share.
No matter what you give her, give it from the heart. That is all that should matter, especially around the holidays!
