It is without a doubt that men are spoiled for choices and varieties
when it comes to buying presents for their girlfriend or wife. The
great selection of clothes, cosmetics and jewelry sold in the stores and online would make one think that buying a gift should be easy right? However, buying a birthday, Christmas or anniversary gift for that special person who seems to “have everything” may not be an easy task.
If your girlfriend or wife appreciates gadgets, I would suggest that you choose very carefully. Unlike men who pride themselves in having the biggest TV or the latest stereo, women are much more into gadgets that are functional, feasible and friendly. One very popular gadget that seems to pass the test is a Portable Video or Music Player. Busy moms or working women can save their favorite videos or music and watch or listen to these on the go. The Digital Photo Frame and Key Chain are also very practical and easy to use. They allow you to display your favorite photos in a fashionable way.
If she is artistic or creative, personalized art is thoughtful and tasteful. Personalized art is something that is often given as a surprise gift for anniversaries or special occasions. Dig out a cool picture of the two of you, a picture of the children or even your favorite pet and turn it into a fun piece of art.
If your girlfriend or wife is a sports fanatic, whether she swims, does yoga or runs, she is most likely to have all the running gear or sports wear. Do some research and keep yourself updated with the latest sports gear and be ready to replace them when her old ones pass their sell by date. For example, if your wife is a swimmer, her swimming costume over the long run will loose its shape due to frequent exposure to chlorine. For her birthday, you could consider replacing her old swim suits with new ones. This is a thoughtful gift.
Cosmetics are part of a woman’s life. Whether she puts on a full face in the morning or simply slap on lipstick, be attentive to her tastes and what she uses. When it comes to replenishing these cosmetics items, you can fill a gift basket with her favorite makeup. She will be pleasantly surprised!
Women are used to being taken out on romantic meals on special occasions. Why not break the tradition and prepare a romantic candle lit home cooked meal. If you have young kids, arrange to have a baby sitter or a sleepover at a friend’s. She will truly appreciate the effort you have put in and she will feel very special. Finish off the evening with a gift basket of movie munchies. Snug up on the couch and enjoy her favorite movie. This is a gift that is both personal and thoughtful and does not cost a fortune.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, if your wife or girlfriend likes a bit of adventure and excitement, an experience gift such as ski-diving or a helicopter ride is guaranteed to be remembered for many years to come
With some thought and understanding your partner’s needs you will be able to find that perfect Christmas, birthday or anniversary gift that is out of the ordinary for that person who seems to have everything.
