Every woman and every relationship is different. This means that there is, unfortunately, no one-size-fits-all when it comes to gift-giving. Some women like quality time and would prefer a trip or an experience that has been put together just for them. Other women want the finer things, like expensive gifts. But at the end of it, all the women in your life, regardless of their truest desire, want to know that you’ve put time and effort into your gift. Sometimes it’s about reading between the lines. Look for something that matters, not just something expensive.
1. Forever Flowers
These came onto the scene for the first time a few years ago. Whoever said diamonds last forever and flowers die that one did not live into the 21st century. Secretly, and sometimes not so secretly, women want flowers. If you’ve recently seen a box online with perfectly lined roses that are in the most gorgeous bloomed state, these roses are like that for 365 days of the year. This is all thanks to modern technology.
This is another example of a gift that women want but probably won’t ask for, nor will they buy it for themselves. This is one of those gifts that you give out of the blue or attached to date, not as a birthday gift, so don’t make that mistake. Pair this with a few other things—some of her favorite chocolates and a meaningful knickknack or two. Few things beat the tastes of milk chocolate when they are a gift from someone you care about. Bonus points for knowing her favorite flowers and her favorite chocolate. This shows that you both listen and take note of what she does and doesn’t like.
2. Luxurious Pillow
Skincare has grown in popularity over the past few years, but unless you know exactly what she uses and if she enjoys it, it’s probably best NOT to purchase products without her knowledge. You never know if she’s been thinking about trying something new or if her existing products are no longer working for her. Skincare is about more than just the products you use on your face. A luxurious pillowcase made out of good quality silk is great for your hair, assists in anti-aging, are soft for your skin, and is even anti-bacterial in some cases. If the woman you want to gift this to is a sleeper, then this is for her.
More than a third of all adults in the US are not getting enough sleep, nor are they getting it on a regular basis. The best gift is one that she probably wouldn’t think of for herself. Maybe even consider getting a luxurious pillow inner for the luxurious pillow outer so that she can wake up feeling energized and with a beautiful head of hair.
3. Special Date
When you’ve been in a relationship for a while or don’t see this woman too often, a romantic or memorable date could be just the thing to make their day. You could go to a special space for both of you, one that has a significant meaning, or even a romantic dinner at a restaurant you have both been talking about. You can keep it light-hearted or amp up the romance. Both can be special. This is an excellent way to show her that she is an important part of your life.
4. Something That Represents Her
On the note of listening to her and taking note of what she likes, get something that represents her. Regurgitating a gift you’ve given to other women before is a bad idea and will not go down well. It is effortless for someone to search, whether on Facebook or Instagram, for gifts you have given in the past. Give them something related to their interests, passions, hobbies, or even career goals rather than something generic. Stickers are a fun and creative way to show your attention to detail. Consider creating individual stickers from a favorite movie, artist, or a character of your loved one and they will surely love it. This is a great way to show her that you really care and support her interests.
5. Essential Oils Kit
Essential oils are all the rage right now. They are being recognized for their soothing qualities amongst other uses. An essential oils diffuser can double as a lovely aesthetic piece with multiple purposes. It can sit there just doing its thing, and you can breathe in the essential oils and breathe out the stress of the day. It is something she can use all the time. It can even just be used as a piece of décor that uplifts the home space by releasing the subtle scent of your choice.
There you have it. Just a few ideas to get you going on the right path. It isn’t always about quantity, but quality. You don’t have to spend tons of money to make her happy. You just need to listen to her and give her what she wants.
