It can be difficult for a man to shop for the woman in his life, especially at Christmas time. Rather than buying a present that you think any woman would love, try to tailor your Christmas gift to the personality of your woman.
Many of us take the easy way out of trying to think of a suitable gift for a loved one by simply asking them what they want. Whilst this technique does mean that the giver is always sure of pleasing the recipient, it does take the element of surprise out of the whole affair. It is far pleasanter to receive a present that is unexpected, especially as it proves that some thought has gone into it. Just remember to tailor your gift to your budget.
For the woman who works, probably all the hours God sends, the best gift is one that allows her to relax and take time out. This could be something as simple as bath salts and a candle gift set, or the more luxurious option of an all-paid session at a health or beauty spa, a massage, or even a day spent with a personal shopper.
For the woman who fancies herself a bit of a connoisseur, you could buy her a hamper of food and drink goodies. These could include some vintage wines, Belgian chocolates, and caviar. If these would stretch the budget a little too far, consider some accessories instead, such as a wine aerator. You could even make your own hamper with a few select ingredients.
Gadgets are not just for men; women these days enjoy state-of-the-art technology too. Treat your partner to the latest smartphone or tablet computer, or for less expensive gifts, quality headphones or ear buds. You could also buy a subscription or voucher for music downloads. If the woman in your life enjoys cooking and entertains hopes of creating gourmet dishes, invest in a new food processor or mixer for the kitchen.
Of course, if you want to give your lady something girly, jewelry is generally a good choice. If buying a ring, make sure you borrow one that she currently wears to get the correct finger size. Diamonds are always a more than acceptable present, so why not choose a delicate pair of stud earrings as a gift? An alternative to jewelry is a leather or designer handbag – just try to keep her fashion style in your mind when choosing.
It could be fun to try to find a gift that can please both of you this Christmas. These are the kinds of presents that are best not opened in front of the family, but kept for the early morning lie-in present giving. Lingerie is always a good choice, and there is a good range of alternative sex clothes from lingeriediva.com.
Whatever your budget, prove you love the woman in your life by putting a little thought into the Christmas presents you bestow on her and avoiding the ‘one size fits all’ type of solution. She will love you the more for it.
