Buying a gift for the women in our lives is often daunting. We want to make sure that it is something that she is going to love; that she will actually use; and that will reflect well on us. Concerns such as these can mean people often agonize for hours between buying the perfect gift or simply playing it safe and falling back to those primary gift staples; flowers and chocolate. But of course including one of these within the gift doesn't hurt...

Buying the right gift for her:

The first things to consider are who are you buying for and what is the occasion? Sounds simple as you know this already, but as you would get something quite different for your mother at Christmas than you would for your wife on her birthday it is important to keep attentive.

Depending on this, you will need to decide on what your budget is. Just because you don’t have a lot of money to spend does not mean the gift has to seem cheap, there are plenty of thoughtful gifts available at a perfectly reasonable price.

The occasion is highly important here as the value of the gift can be dependent on the event you are buying it for.  Some dates like an anniversary or a milestone birthday tend to require bigger budgets and certain types of gift, for instance jewellery, for certain anniversaries in the UK are aligned with specific materials. Still for many occasions, thoughtful yet less expensive items, such as gift baskets made up of her favourite condiments, spa lotions or oils always go down a treat.

Generic gift ideas are better avoided, thinking of a unique gift to suit your recipient is far more thoughtful and far more appreciated. It is important to take into consideration the individuality of the person you are buying for; What type of things do they like to do? What makes them happy? Where are their favouritism places? Adding a personalized element speaks out to the woman you are buying for as it illustrates how well you know them as well as reflecting their importance to you.

To summarize:
  • Think carefully about who you are buying for and what the occasion is.
  • Know what your budget is but make sure you plan ahead for the big occasions.
  • Make sure you consider the women in your life individually. Let them know how well you know them.
