It’s finally here – the most wonderful time of the year. While the season can be stressful for some, the magic is undeniable. One thing that may be stressing you out is trying to nail down the perfect gift for your significant other. Well, if you’re shopping for a lady in your life this year, make it a gift she’ll love and cherish for the rest of her life. The last couple of years have been a doozy, so lift her spirits with one of the following presents so she can enter the new year with a new lease on life.
Give Her A Break
One gift that would please anyone is a vacation – they’re shown to not only help our physical health but mental and emotional too. So, surprise her with an envelope containing tickets to somewhere she’s been dying to visit. You can hire a travel agent to make things easier on you regarding hotels, spas, and anything else you want to add to the itinerary. If you’re going to take it a step further, add an item she’ll use on the trip, like a new bikini or some designer sunglasses.
There’s nothing like receiving an item you’ve been coveting but couldn’t justify the splurge. If she’s a collector who’s had her eye on some antique glass or blue chip art – this year, give it to her. Beyond the beauty of these items, they provide a fantastic return on your investment. If the two of you are married, these are items that will be passed through your family generationally – truly a gift that keeps on giving.
Piggybacking on heirlooms, diamonds indeed are a girl’s best friend. Maybe this year is the year you want to pop the question finally. December 25th is the number one day to get engaged worldwide. So, visit your local jeweler to take a look at the selection of engagement rings they have. If you have no idea where to start or what she would love, meeting with a jeweler can help you pin down her style. If you’re already engaged, or that’s not on your radar, fine jewelry in other forms makes a fantastic present year-round, so why not for the holidays. If she doesn’t have a pearl necklace yet or a pair of diamond studs, that’s a perfect place to start.
A Subscription Service
Maybe the lady in your life is the practical one out of the two of you. If she’s got passions and interests that could be satisfied through a subscription service, consider them as a gift. It may not seem lavish enough, but if she’s a wine aficionado or a pet lover, sign her up for a service that will take the load of shopping for those things off her shoulder. After all, that gives you more time with her. If this is too simple of a gift, you could always add a few subscription notifications to her stocking.
As cliche as flowers and chocolates may seem, they exist as a cliche for a reason. While they may not take center stage in your gift-giving, they should be included underneath the tree or at the bedside when she wakes up on Christmas morning. So, find some luxury chocolate online or from your local chocolatier and let her indulge this season. When it comes to flowers, it’s best to leave the arrangement in the hands of a professional – so give yourself time to call and order the perfect arrangement.
Intimates Are Always In Style
Lastly, nothing says “I love you” and “I see you,” like giving your girl some new intimates to feel sexy in. Even the healthiest of romantic relationships can benefit from spicing things up from time to time. Keep in mind that this is a gift, so make sure you buy intimates in her style, not your fantasy style. If they are the same – even better – but buy something you know she feels gorgeous in.
Holiday shopping is, for many, one of their favorite parts of the season, and others dread it. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, we all get by with a little help from our friends. So let this list be your best friend and nudge you in the right direction. Happy holidays!
