If there is one thing I tend to struggle with, it is buying gifts for people. In particular the women in my life. Sometimes it is really hard to think of something that you know they are going to love. There are of course the obvious choices of chocolates or flowers but they don’t last very long. You really want to gift something that will be loved and treasured over time. So, if you are struggling to find a Gift for Her, be it for your Mum, Nan, Sister, Auntie, daughter, girlfriend or your Bestie, I’ve got some great ideas for you.
it’s the thought that counts
This is definitely true. It’s not all about how expensive something is; It really is the thought behind it. It doesn’t even have to be a physical gift. Giving someone your time is the most precious thing you have to give. We live such fast-paced lives and often we don’t make enough free time to spend with our loved ones. Just spending some quality time with her could be the perfect gift. Especially if you usually don’t get to see them very often. Do something special with her, take her out for the day to somewhere you know she will love. Or take her for a lovely meal or afternoon tea. Make memories with her that will last for years to come.
Make It Personal
Buying a personalised gift for her is always a good option too. There are so many different items you could choose to have personalised. Notebooks, journals or a gorgeous pen would be ideal if she is a stationery lover. For those that love to wear it, jewellery is always a good choice and is more meaningful when it is personalised; it is also something that will be cherished over the years too. You could get her a really nice keepsake like a trinket box, photo frame, or if she likes the odd glass of wine or gin, even a personalised wine or gin glass for fun! You can have fun with personalising a gift, it doesn’t just have to be sentimental and that’s the beauty of it.
Having a gift personalised also shows the extra thought and attention that has gone into it; ultimately showing how much you care about the person you are giving it to. It turns a gift for her into something very special and really shows your appreciation.
make it fun or unique
Sometimes, depending on the recipient, fun, unique or even the more quirky gifts can be a huge hit and warmly received. Just thinking outside the box you can come up with some really fab ideas for a gift that is just that little bit different and is sure to put a smile on her face. It could be an activity you can do together like wine tasting, rock climbing or any type of experience day – there are plenty to choose from. If she loves to cook, then how about a cookery class together!
make her feel beautiful
Okay, not exactly make her beautiful per se – I am sure she is already beautiful! But as I love beauty so much it would be remiss of me if I didn’t suggest beauty products as a gift option. I am not going to say all women love beauty because obviously, they don’t. However, if she does love skincare, makeup, and fragrances then any of those will be sure to please her. Perhaps even gift her a subscription to a beauty box each month; there are so many to choose from.
You could even surprise her with a spa break, or simply a pamper day to get her hair and nails done. Always a good choice if that is something that she doesn’t always find the time for. Or you could put together a hamper for her with lots of pampering treats like face masks, bath bombs, eye mask, body scrub or moisturiser, scented candles etc.
So, there you have it. I hope that I have given you some good ideas if you need to find a gift and are struggling to find one for your special lady, whatever role she plays in your life.
