You are thinking, her closet is full of clothes, the coat closet is overflowing with her stuff, the shoe rack is packed and I haven't seen those earrings I got her for her birthday in month's right? Well not surprisingly many women have numerous material items and surprise, surprise purchases many more throughout the year as well. This can lead many husbands, boyfriends, brothers and friends clueless as to what that special woman in their life might actually need. Well, not shockingly, many women probably don't need anything else, but there are some gifts you can get her that she will definitely appreciate.
If you describe your woman as a beauty queen, someone who lives and dies by fashion and beauty, then finding the perfect something for her is easy. Jewelry for this woman is always a great choice, think of something classic like a beautiful pair of pearl earrings, or if you want to splurge go for a pair of diamond studs. You can also head to your local spa and grab a gift certificate for a day at the spa, think manicure, pedicure, facial and massage. You can also choose a perfume scent that you enjoy, and trust me, if you like it she will be bound to wear it. If you are looking to spend a little less money, browse for some aromatherapy candles in her favorite scent or a plush bathrobe that will make her want to stay in bed all day.
If you are looking for a gift for a home and kitchen goddess think about getting her something she can use around the house. Think about adding the cookbook the American Fashion Cookbook, assembled by the Council of Fashion Designers of America, to her collection. Anthropologie also has dozens of different kitchen items ranging from petal shaped measuring cups to lotus dinnerware to a Parisian café apron. Again, if you looking to splurge a little bit think about gifting a Kitchen Aid mixer which comes in a variety of sizes and colors, my tip, gift the largest mixer your budget can afford.
The next lady on our list can only be defined as superwoman, or in more simple terms an athlete. This woman can often be hard to shop for, seeing as you can only have so many workout shorts, shirts, shoes, etc. Well this year look into getting her an iPod shuffle so she can add some of her favorite tunes to her workout. She would also benefit from a Timex Sports Ironman Wrist Watch which would help her train like a champion with the time zone and lap recall features. This woman might also enjoy a Wii Fit that would allow her to work out from home on those days she just doesn't have time to get to the gym. There are also a number of small things you can get this special lady, think a yoga essentials brick, a Pezzi Gymnastik Ball or a Biggest Loser Workout DVD.
For those women who love a good book, there are also many popular reads that you can add to her collection. The first thing you can think about investing in is an online book of the month club for her to join. These clubs offer a wide variety of general categories and have thousands of titles to choose from, so there is something for everyone. Specifically, some good books to look into are The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, The Measure of a Man by Sidney Poitier or any of the Nicholas Sparks novels.
If you are not sure which of the above categories your woman falls into, there are also many gifts that are suitable for just about any woman. First, a good chick flick will be much appreciated, especially if you sit down and watch it with her, try Twilight, Four Christmases or Sex and the City. A classic watch is sure to be another pleaser, for it is one thing that most women want to invest in but never do. You can also splurge on something like a digital camera that can be used for years to come. And finally, a homemade dinner is something that comes from the heart and something she will truly appreciate, but at a small cost to you.
Despite whatever you decide to buy that special woman in your life, she is bound to appreciate the thought you put into it, but if you are looking for something special try any one of the ideas above.
