Holiday Gift Ideas for your Wife

Choosing a gift for your wife may seem tough, because who else knows her better than you do? You know her likes and dislikes, what she does in her spare time and what sort of style she has…but still, like many husbands, you may find yourself at a loss when it comes to choosing the right Holiday present for her. With some simple suggestions, a little thought and ingenuity, you’ll be able to pick the perfect gift in no time at all.

First piece of advice: don’t leave buying her gift until the last minute. Shopping malls the weeks during the holidays, especially the week before Christmas, are a nightmare, and only add to the stress of buying gifts. If you decide what you want to buy her ahead of time, you’ll save yourself a lot of unnecessary stress and anxiety.

Holiday Gift Ideas

Women love gifts that allow them to pampering and rejuvenation. Your wife may enjoy a lovely basket filled with spa products will allow her some time to herself to relax, as would a certificate for a massage, facial and pedicure at a spa. You could also consider a gift card from her favorite make-up counter at the mall, or a bottle of her favorite perfume or perhaps even a new fragrance. If you choose to go to a store or makeup counter for these products, you should find yourself surrounded by associates who are eager to help you choose the right gift – take advantage of this, so go prepared. They’ll ask you questions about her, and the more specific you are about her likes and dislikes, the more they will be able to help you.

If you decide you would like to give clothes or shoes as a gift, make sure you know what size she is before you go. This will save both awkwardness when the associates ask you what size she is, and also her having to go back after Christmas to exchange the items and perhaps and risking the chance that they may not have the same stock on hand.

You might consider a gift that fits her hobbies and interests; if she loves cooking, you could give her some cookbooks and kitchen gadgets, and a certificate to a couple’s cooking class. If she likes the outdoors and hiking, you could get her a new backpack and hiking boots, and a guidebook for a trip you intend on taking her.

You should give her a meaningful gift that is a reflection on how much you love her. If you can, avoid giving her a generic gift, like CDs or DVDs, as her main gift. Also, if your wife is a homemaker, and unless she has expressed her interest in a specific item, you may want to avoid giving her kitchen or household appliances, as these look like you’re actually giving a gift to yourself. She may love them, sure, but you should try and give her a meaningful gift that shows her how much you love her and that she will remember and cherish for years to come.
