Studies show that our body releases endorphins when we give a gift, filling us with pleasure as though we were the recipient. Now, while the joy we receive from giving gifts is a scientific fact, it does not seem to capture that thinking about the right gift can be quite overwhelming. This is not so surprising when we consider how unique we all are as humans and so, what appeals to you might not appeal to me.
And some might argue that getting gifts for the women in your life is even more stressful. Be it your mum, wife, girlfriend, best friend or even your colleague, shopping for the right item for a woman is not a walk in the park. Buying a unique gift that she’d appreciate requires a little creativity.
So, to save you the trouble of racking your brain, I’ve helped come up with a list of amazing gift ideas for different occasions.
Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her
It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I’m sure there is a man somewhere asking, “what does a woman want for Valentine’s Day? While I might not be able to help you with every woman on earth, I can give you some wonderful gift ideas for her to consider.
Jewelry is always a good idea for Valentine’s Day because it’s quite intimate. People don’t generally give jewelry to you except there is an intimate relationship involved. So, you’d be showing her how special she is to you by buying her one. However, remember that there are different kinds of jewelry, so try to get her the piece she’d prefer. For instance, don’t buy earrings for a woman that prefers necklaces.
This is a go-to Valentine’s Day gift and really, who doesn’t like chocolates, especially on such a special day?
Although flowers are great, don’t just assume she loves flowers because she is a woman. Some women don’t like flowers. So, if you are totally lost, you could ask her friends if you have access to them. If not, then ask her. A simple, “do you like flowers?” would suffice. You don’t have to tell her your plans.
What makes buying lingeries a cool idea is the fact that they make women feel beautiful. So, a nice, sexy lingerie set is definitely something to consider for your woman.
- Makeup Bag
If she loves makeup, she probably owns different makeup items and probably already owns a makeup bag, but there is nothing wrong with getting her something new that can easily go in her purse.
Unique Gift Ideas for Her
Now, of course, you could decide to buy her the usual gifts or you could take a different route and go for something more unique. If this is you, I’ve got you covered.
- Scented Candle/Candle Holder
If you are gifting someone that loves scents or is into meditation, you can get them scented candles and/or a candle holder. The great thing about this is that not only will it serve the purpose of a scented candle, it’s also pretty. And one thing we know about women is that we love pretty things. You can check out our scented candles and candle holder for ideas.
- Beautiful Phone Case
A phone case is not your go-to gift for most people. And that’s why it’s a good idea because I bet she’d not be expecting it. However, I’d advise that you don’t get something flowery or pinkish because she is a woman. Find out if she’d like that or prefer something else. And you are sure to score more points if it’s in her favorite color.
- Home Art
A lot of people don’t consider home art when choosing a gift. But many women like decore- they may not be so into it but they’d still appreciate it. You should consider these beautiful decorative pieces from us.
You are probably bent over with laughter seeing this. But we are talking about unique gifts, remember? Surely, unexpected gift ideas like wigs should be there. One of the reasons women love wigs is because they give us an easy way to change our looks as much as we want. And I am sure many women will appreciate getting a wig as a gift.
Before getting scared, remember that it doesn’t have to be an expensive gadget. Of course, if you can afford it and are feeling generous, then sure. If not, you can check out more affordable options such as earbuds, mini-speakers, headsets, a wireless charger, Google home mini, Smartphone picture printer and so on.
Christmas Gift Ideas for Her
When thinking of Christmas gift ideas, it’s best to consider something the person has always wanted. But if you have no idea what they want, then you should think of something warm to spread the holiday spirit. The following are good ideas to consider for her.
Most people take pictures in Pajamas during Christmas. And that’s probably why Pajamas are a great idea for Christmas. I’d advise you to get a pretty but more practical one that she can wear at home and not just to sleep.
If she likes to cook or loves having people over for dinner, you should consider giving her dinnerware to upgrade her dining table. She’d definitely appreciate you giving her table a boost. We have cute hand-made dinnerware that she’s sure to appreciate.
Not only are sweaters (or cardigans) fashion statements, but they also come in handy during winter, spring and fall, especially. So, you’d be getting her something that can accentuate her style and to cover up when it’s cold.
- Essential Oil Diffuser
For the woman who loves home decor and scents, you can get her an essential oil diffuser that will add style to her room and fill it with a nice scent. Essential oils are also great for relaxing after a stressful day, so you’d be encouraging her with the right item to de-stress.
Buying gifts for a bookworm is probably the easiest thing ever; especially for those who don’t care about much but books. All you have to worry about is knowing the kind of books she likes and the ones she doesn’t already have in her library. And if she is a collector and it’s not above budget, you can get her the first edition of her favorite book.
Birthday Gift Ideas for Her
Just like Christmas, birthday gifts for her should either be something she wants or something practical and warm. Consider the ideas below;
This is a very practical gift idea for women; you can practically never go wrong with gifting a woman a shoe or a bag. Some women love shoes and others prefer bags. So, you should go for the one she prefers among the two.
Wristwatches are very useful and practical. And that’s why most people love them. Plus, one can never have too many wristwatches.
Women love dresses. Every woman is in fact advised to have that one dress that she can throw on when she needs to. So, you can help her add another dress to her wardrobe.
You are gifting a wine connoisseur? Consider getting her wine or even wine glasses. This is, especially, great for a woman you have a professional relationship with. This wine holder from us could also be a good add-on.
- Jewelry Box
If she has a lot of jewelry, then she’d definitely appreciate a jewelry box to store all her jewelry.
Anniversary Gift Ideas for Her
Now, some people might disagree but I believe that anniversary gifts should reflect your love and your relationship. After all, it’s the celebration of your love for a certain period, so let it reflect that. And the sentimental value will definitely speak to your woman.
- Picture Frame
You may be wondering why a picture frame is on this list considering I said anniversary gifts should be sentimental. Well, instead of sending an empty picture frame, you could add a favorite picture of both of you, especially one that means a lot to both of you.
- Set of Couple Bracelets
It doesn’t matter if it is beaded or leather bracelets, a set of couple bracelets makes a statement and it absolutely celebrates your love. You could even get custom bracelets with inscriptions about how you feel about each other.
Travelling on vacation to celebrate your anniversary works because not only would you be creating memories, you’d also be taking time away from the usual hustle and bustle to focus on each other. And you don’t even have to travel out of the country, you can take a road trip, go to another state or even plan a staycation.
- Pillow Cover
For a pillow cover, a throw pillow would be a better option but you can get a normal pillow cover as well. A custom pillow cover with your pictures or your names would be great. And if that’s too much hassle, then you can opt for a beautifully-designed pillow cover. We have a wide range of amazing pillow covers you should check out.
- A Photo Album
A photo album would carry the same sentiment as the picture frame but even more, because you have more space to accommodate more memorable pictures. It is a very thoughtful gift that’d require a lot of effort. And that’s why it works.
