We’re not planning to kid you here. When it comes to buying gifts, whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s or Xmas, things can be a little difficult. There are so many options out there that it becomes difficult and confusing to choose a gift. Whoever you’re buying for, whether it’s for your mum, sister, aunt, friend or favourite neighbour, you don’t want it to be a disaster. You want them to be proud of the gift you’ve given them. And feel confident that the gift won’t be passed on to someone else next year. When it comes to gifts for the female of the species, you’ve likely learnt from some of your mistakes. So let’s just recap some of the rules for giving gifts to ladies. Practical doesn’t work. These kinds of gifts are meant for every other day of the year. And when we refer to practical, we’re talking about that washing machine you gave her a few years ago. What matters most is that it’s a gift that you’ve thought about, and chosen it because you’re certain it’s what she wants.
If you’re starting to go into stress overload, sit down and take a deep breath. We’re here to help with your choice of special Xmas gifts for her. And help is the important word here. We’re not professing to be the golden oracle when it comes to finding the perfect gift. But we hope that with a few suggestions, you’ll be well on the way to finding what you need.
Impress with special Xmas gifts for her
We wouldn’t dream of telling you that finding special Xmas gifts for her is easy, because it really isn’t so. However, you can make life much easier by putting some thought into what you buy. Think about all the things she likes, what her favourite pastimes are and what her personality is like. Buying a humorous gift for the lady that takes life very seriously might not be the right way to go. And buying heaps of beauty products for the lady that prefers a more natural look won’t work either. One idea that we think will work very well for the lady in your life is the gift of a special experience. It’s not a tangible gift that she can hold in her hand, but it will give her the opportunity to take some time out of her normal routine, doing something that she loves doing, or enjoying a new experience she’s been longing to try. Here’s a few popular suggestions:
- Spa treatment for two – Lie back and relax and let the worries of the world just slip away. Enjoy a healing massage or many of the other treatments available. Pedicures, manicures, body polishes and wraps are just a few examples of the experiences that await her, and you of course.
- Vineyard tour – She’ll discover a world of fine wines in her own backyard, and learning more about how they’re made and the best ways to serve them will make her next glass of wine all the more special.
- Gourmet cooking class – She’ll have the opportunity to learn how to create some gourmet style dishes. And who will the guinea pig be when she’s practising at home? You, of course.
- Bistro dinner at home – Give her the night off and arrange to bring a personal chef for her into your home. With this experience, all of the preparation, cooking and serving is take care off. All she needs to do is sit down at the table and enjoy her gourmet meal.
- Personal fitness and lifestyle training – Armed with her own individual training program and personal instructor, she’ll soon be feeling in the peak of health.

Special Christmas gifts for her – Something to wear
Jewellery is a good choice for the lady who holds a special place in your heart. Never heard that diamonds are a girl’s best friend? There couldn’t be a truer statement.
How about something alluring and exotic for her to wear? Just remember who you’re buying the gift for, and don’t go overboard trying to fulfill your own personal bedroom fantasy. The lingerie or nightwear that you buy should be comfortable and make your lady feel sexy; not trussed up like a chicken ready to roast.
If she’s a bit of a techie – Special Christmas gifts for her
Modern technology is moving so fast it’s quite difficult to keep up with the latest advances. It’s likely there’s a piece of technology that she’s longing to own, so this Xmas surprise her by giving it to her. A new smartphone, tablet, laptop or even a digital camera. Some of the IT equipment available nowadays has enough processing power to run a small country. So it’ll be more than adequate for her to use to keep her life pretty well organized.
A special Christmas gift for her that she can use in the home
We really can’t believe you if you’re thinking about buying her a new vacuum cleaner! We’re not saying it won’t be useful because it most certainly will. But and however, it definitely doesn’t come under the heading of special. Instead consider an espresso maker, bread machine or ice-cream maker. Or a new dinner service in her favourite colours, a tea set or engraved glassware. Or even better would be an original piece of artwork in the style that she likes the most.
Whatever age you are, and whether you’re male or female, Christmas never stops being special. Part of the enjoyment is being with your family and friends, and of course the giving and receiving of presents. We hope we’ve helped to make your holiday celebrations a bit more successful and certainly a little more worry-free.
