Most men will agree that choosing a good gift for wife, girlfriend or mother is not an easy task. The main reason as everybody knows – men don’t like shopping and second – women are choosy. Before you buy something ask yourself the questions below. Hope they will guide you to find a right answer on a question how to choose a good gift for her.
Another practical gift?
Why do men love to buy practical gifts? Because they are practical themselves. How many practical gifts my mom has got in her life from my father? A lot and for that, I can call my father “practical gift expert”. if something gets broken before Christmas, her birthday or Valentine day she will surely get a new iron, vacuum cleaner or any other needed stuff.
Of course, if your dearest begging for a brand new mixer, because she can not be without it anymore, yes, it can be an excellent gift. But if you want to buy home appliances with the hope she will like it, you are wrong. Actually, you need to buy it anyhow because your home needs it, but not necessarily your partner. So the question is why to spoil her celebration? Be creative and think about what can be really a good gift for her…
Is she passionate about something?
If yes, then you are lucky! Good to remember this important fact. Gift-related to her hobby will never disappoint her. Does she love to collect something like statues, coins, books or dolls? Surely buying one more can make her so happy. As an elephant collector, I am always happy to receive some new statues.
Listen to what she says?
Wife or girlfriend, mother or sister doesn’t matter, women always try to insinuate what they want or need. But somehow we are a bit complicated and will not tell directly what we want. We always use a statement: ”I have nothing to wear”, ” I need a new bag”, ”I am so tired I need some break ”. The first and second statement can be solved by buying a voucher for her favourite shop or shopping centre. Choosing a package of some great spa treatments or prolonged weekend stay can solve the third issue.
A different character needs a different gift. What is her nature?
Is she tender, kind, ready to make everyone happy, love animals and kids? You can make her happy with a beautifully decorated fruit bowl, some handmade sofa cushions or anything else what is cute and heart-warming. In case your present won’t match her criteria but you will not know about it, because she is too kind to tell you that.
Careful and caring who love some fun and being with family? You can buy for her voucher for cooking classes, diving with an instructor or Thai massage. Any activity with families like paintball game or ceramics modelling can be really a good gift for her. Because she loves to take care of home, surely she might like vases, candle holders or paintings. If she likes or doesn’t like the gift she might tell about it, maybe even suggest you something for the next time.
Friendly, carefree and sporty. Ticket for the concert, jump bungee workout or any sporty fashion accessories will guarantee a success. Unnecessary or useless gifts will end up next day in wardrobe. Usually, you will be able to read her face if it’s a good gift for her, if not she won’t care much because she does not have time to think about it too much.
Smart, independent and powerful women need a good and elegant gift. Luxury leather office diary, elegant golden bracelet or quality Kashmir pashmina can be a very successful choice. In case, you are not sure about the present keep the bill, she will surely tell you if she wants to turn this present back or to change it.
Jewellery, cosmetics and perfumes?
She loves jewellery – one more bracelet or necklace will surely make her happy. Another good idea can be an ultrasonic jewellery cleaner which will provide highly effective jewellery cleaning without damages and scratches. Handmade jewellery stand can add more aesthetics to her collection.
If she is not often buying jewellery and using only one favourite ring and a pair of earrings most probably giving jewellery as a gift is not a good idea.
Cosmetics as a gift – can be quite complicated, because you need to know at least a few factors. How to choose a good cosmetics? You need to know answers to following questions… What type of skin she has? Or what is her favourite brand or colours that suit her best?. If you are not sure on her tastes, an organic cosmetic package containing peeling, shower gel, body milk or soap will certainly do the trick for you…
For the perfumes, you need to know 100% the brand. Or even better take her for shopping? Kill two flies with one hand, give her your time and the right gift as she is the one choosing it. Of course, it should be an unexpected surprise. Please bear in mind that does not invite her for shopping after the party.
Make her delighted – Be a gift yourself!
Women generally love to spend time with their dearest. Remind her that she is in your mind always, be creative and make her day special.
Treat her with a good home massage. You don’t have to be a professional at it! Creating a soothing atmosphere with some dimmed lights, coloured candles, herbal oils and some relaxing music will turn any simple message into lovable memory. Body treatments including massages can fit any age and any sex.
Prepare a dinner for her! Even in this case, you don’t have to know much about cooking or be some specialist. You can find a hundred simple recipes online. A good bottle of wine, candles and some nice dessert will guarantee success.
First of all, don’t forget that gift it’s an expression of your feelings. It doesn’t matter how much it costs or what is it, the matter is how deeply you think and understand the person. How often we buy presents? Surely not every day, week and not even every month, so why not to try to make a special day and choose a good gift for her.
