Whether you are looking for a gift for your wife, girlfriend, daughter, sister or a friend for an occasion such as Christmas, a birthday, or simply as a kind gesture, shopping for great gifts for women can be a daunting and confusing task. There are many gift options available on the high street or in quirky boutique shops to cater to a range of budgets and tastes, which can make the process all the more mind-boggling. We’ve put together a handy list to take the stress out of choosing the right gift for the woman in your life.
The way to any woman’s heart is through a cosy set of pyjamas. From unicorn motifs to checked flannel PJs, there is a pyjama set out there to suit the individual tastes and personalities of every woman across the globe! Choose smooth, lightweight, cotton or silk pyjamas that feel extra comfy and luxurious against the skin and you won’t go far wrong. Posh PJs also make a great gift for women as it just isn’t the sort of thing that many of us want to go out and spend a lot of money on buying ourselves. If you’re looking for extra brownie points, why not buy her a super soft, fleece dressing gown too.
A Structured Handbag
Every girl needs a handy bag in which to throw their keys, purse, mobile phone and lipstick whilst on the go. If she’s always carrying individual items in her hands and back pockets or moans that her current style bag isn’t big enough or doesn’t match most of her outfits, then definitely consider buying her a structured handbag. The structured style and clean lines are a modern day design that oozes sophistication and femininity. Extremely practical and functional, a larger structured handbag can even double up as travel hand luggage with small compartments and even room to slide in a laptop, making them one of the best gifts for women. Opt for a bold, block colour such as black, navy or nude to increase the chances of it complementing most of her outfits.
We may be biased, but we believe that watches are one of the many great gifts for women that you can buy. A classic, chic timepiece will complement everything in her wardrobe, from her professional work outfit to an evening dress. If you are unsure, opt for a watch with interchangeable wrist straps so it can be tailored to every occasion.
They say that smelling great is the height of attraction for a lot of people. Again, due to the slightly higher price tag that comes with buying perfume, it isn’t something that she is likely to purchase herself, making it a great gift. If you are unsure, choose a classic scent like Chanel Chance or Coco Mademoiselle, both of which top the best-selling women’s perfume lists time and time again.
A Scented Candle
Most women love nothing more than an evening of pampering and relaxation. Whether she’s soaking in the bath or curled up in front of the fire with a glass of wine, a beautifully scented candle is the perfect addition to take the atmosphere from chilled to heavenly. Lavender and jasmine scents are associated with helping to relieve stress and induce relaxation whilst more fragrant aromas such as rose or vanilla will leave their home smelling wonderful.
When you think of great gifts for women, more than likely, purchasing a piece of jewellery will spring to mind. The beauty with jewellery is that you can choose anything from a statement necklace, a delicate bracelet or unique ring. The key to buying a piece of jewellery she will love is to try and discover if she would prefer a dainty necklace that she can wear every day and would carry a sentimental meaning or if she lacks statements pieces that can be worn on nights out to take her outfit to the next level. Jewellery shops like Pandora or Tiffany have stunning options that can cater to both.
Hopefully, our list of great gifts for women has inspired you and helped you to decide on the perfect present for your loved one. Try not to overthink it, chances are they will appreciate the sentiment and the effort that you have gone to even if the gift isn’t quite right for them. Happy shopping!
