Ah the holidays and Christmas shopping… or also birthday if you’re ‘lucky’ enough to be a December 21st baby like me… Point is, no matter how close you are to your friends and significant other, it’s a struggle to buy them a present and be 100% sure they’ll love it. I like listening for clues all year long and surprise them when they expect it the least but that’s not always easy. I’ve put up a list of affordable and thoughtful gifts that no matter what your girl is into she’ll like.
She likes fashion. But picking up clothes for someone ain’t the easiest, so I’d recommend for you to stick with accessories, like beanie, scarf, gloves… and let’s not forget about those comfy socks to watch TV with… because who doesn’t like staying warm while looking stylish?
Even better for the extra girly, she will love those beanies with sparkly words on. If you need help with the trendy outfits of the winter head over to my previous post. And don’t forget gift cards. That might be the easy option but you know they’ll pick something they like for sure.
If she’s a fashionista, chances are she likes taking care of herself and anything beauty related. Get her the full treatment, mani + pedi, massage, blow out… Those beauty bars are perfect for that. And she doesn’t even have to do it on her own, you can make it a girls day with her being the center of attention.
If your budget allows it I would hump it up and get your girl a brand new purse. No woman will ever be disappointed by having a purse. Just make sure to get one practical and in the style that she usually wears.
The girl next door
This is for my girls who don’t really care about fashion, nor makeup but just enjoy life in general. As a matter of fact that’s the easiest person to get a gift for.
Yes you can definitely go to lush and get some bath bomb but if you want to impress your girl with something a little classier, bath salt is the way to go. They stay in the bath, add texture and colours, smell good and even add minerals to make you skin extra soft. Who doesn’t like a pampering day to relax?
I recently got one of those to a close friend for her birthday and it was a hit. You don’t necessarily need to be crazy about home decor to appreciate it and if you don’t have time to take care of a plant (like most of us do) then this is the one for you. They only need water once a month! The one I got her was real but if you’re looking for a cheaper option you can find the one in the picture for only 9$…
The cold season is definitely made more bearable with all those flavoured drinks we have at Starbucks. I found a kit a of 4 different hot chocolate flavours, from peppermint to gingerbread and some syrup to put on top of your whip cream. This way, you girl can enjoy a hot drink in the comfort of her own place while watching Netflix. Not a hot chocolate fan? You can use those syrup to flavour up any coffees…
And when I say the nerd, it’s a little over done. It’s the girl who likes anything electronic related but who also likes to be organized.
If you live in Canada, definitely head over to Indigo, that’s a planner’s heaven place on earth. Especially with the new year coming up, we’re all full of resolutions and writing them down helps. From a weekly planner, to notebooks and cute pens, your girl will be a happy one. Anything that helps us staying motivated and achieving our goals is a good investment.
I don’t think I’ve ever met a person who does not like listening to music. Whether you’re on the go, waiting in line or cleaning your house, we all do it and what best way to listen to music than with an amazing sound? Those speakers are amazing and so small you can take them with you anywhere. If you wanna go even nerdier, hop for a shower speaker. How cool is that?
The Home Decor Queen
Anyone can appreciate a good decor piece but if she’s into it and spend a lot of time reorganizing her place with the seasons you’ve hit the jackpot.
Buying a classic candle is a little boring but they are amazing ones on the market. Bath & Body works always comes up with new packaging and sent that match every season. This way you can use them as a decor piece and have your place smell amazing as well. Don’t forget about the wallflower plugs. They are super cute and you don’t have to worry about making sure to blow them out.
Maybe it’s because it reminds me of the movies or the nice childhood memories but I have a thing for snow balls. They are back in style this year and you don’t have to stick with the cheesy one! Those are perfect to make a place look so cozy and put together, and if you find those quotes that we’re all addicted to, even better…
Ok maybe it’s just me who’s addicted to quotes and you can also add to that, mugs… But realistically we all love to drink something warm. Wether it’s a hot chocolate, a tea or a coffee this will be useful. Added to that, you can chose one really personalized depending on what your girl is into.
I hope you enjoyed this article and it gave you some ideas on what to get the women in your life.
