Gifts for a woman can be difficult to find, especially considering there is a huge market and every woman is different. Faced with an entire store of potential gifts, it is completely understandable that someone would become overwhelmed. However, if you take their interests into consideration, it will become infinitely easier to find unique gifts for her that will not be re-gifted.
If you ask your friends for gifts for her ideas, they may tell you to buy jewelry, flowers, candies, or other typical gifts. However, these gifts will not be remembered as well as a thoughtful and well planned out gift. Those who are afraid they will pick out the wrong gift frequently give out gift certificates for large stores. These fall into the same category of unmemorable gifts. However, gift certificates for massages or to spas are a bit more appreciated.
Women who constantly work may enjoy something to relieve stress. Aromatherapy gift baskets are traditional, but are still a boring gift. For them, you should think less about a physical gift and more about treating them to lunch, a movie, or even bowling. If you would rather give a tangible gift, try to find a fire bowl. These are medium size bowls that safely contain a gel fuel for lighting and make an excellent gift in lieu of water fountains.
More women are becoming environmentally conscious. If you are trying to find a gift for someone like that, trendy shopping bags or biodegradable, organic, spa-quality bath supplies could be an idea. Otherwise, uncommon house plants that are easy to grow may make a good gift. Or, if she is someone who could be called a hippy, try this unique gift idea: take a white button-down organic cotton shirt and tie-dye it with two colors she really likes.
For a crafty woman, you may find that she is looking for a certain hard-to-find or otherwise unattainable item. Finding and giving her that item may be the best present she has ever received. Otherwise, interesting yet functional holders could be a good gift. You can find a variety of cute baskets, nifty yet eye-pleasing key holders, and even stylish wine holders at many stores, or make them yourself!
Whatever you do, remember that mundane items like office supplies, appliances, car maintenance items, or other everyday supplies are definitely not the best ideas of gifts for her. Some of the best gifts are homemade ones, such as scrapbooks of your times together or a personalized frame for a picture of you two, handmade bonbons or chocolate strawberries, or even homemade beeswax lip balm if you are crafty enough. Just make sure to give her something that match her interests, otherwise it could end up in the closet, being re-gifted, or worse—thrown away.
