We’re here to help with a gift guide that will aid you in your quest to find the perfect birthday gifts for all the ladies in your life. You never know, you might even get to enjoy the experience rather than look upon it with trepidation.
A great way to show the ladies that you care
There is no better way to show your appreciation than with a gift that comes from the heart. One that you’ve put a lot of thought into is only going to score big with the ladies. Obviously some of you are going to find it all a bit nerve-wracking, and that’s perfectly normal. There are so many options and everyone is different so it’s going to be a job to know exactly where to start.
To calm your nerves and make it so much easier, we’ve done a lot of the hard work for you. You aren’t going to need to spend hours trawling the online gift stores or spend days visiting all your local stores. But first there are going to be some things that you need to decide upon, so let’s start there.
How to choose the perfect birthday presents for her
A good place to start will be to decide on your budget. This will help you decide which category to consider. If you decide to set your limit at $100, there’s going to be no point looking at the high value items. Likewise if you want to be extravagant then boxes of chocolates and bouquets of flowers aren’t going to feature in your list of possibilities.
Once you’ve decided on your budget, it’s time to consider the lady you’re buying the gift for, and ask yourself some of the following questions. Some will require a little more intimate knowledge, and some might need the help of friends and family. Get the answers straight in your head, or written down on paper and you’ll be well on the way to finding the best birthday gifts your money can buy.
Are there any necessities that she needs?
Is there anything she might be lacking in her everyday life? Would a spot of cash come in handy? Or maybe there are some pots and pans she’d welcome? Is her shoe collection looking a little minimal, or maybe her wardrobe could do with a spot of updating? If you are certain that there is something, then your gift buying is going to be a piece of cake.
Does she have any children or pets?
If the special lady has a new addition to the family, or a pet that she spends all her time with, then a gift that’s connected will be well received.
What about a hobby?
Think about the things that she enjoys in her free time, because hobbies are great for birthday gift ideas. Does she love to play the piano? Is she only happy when creating in the kitchen? Maybe she loves the outdoors, or going for a run. Perhaps she can always been found down at the gym. Whatever her hobby there is bound to be a gift that suits. If she loves to curl up with a book in the evening then an electronic reader would be the perfect birthday gift for her.
Does she have any obsessions?
If you know the female well then answering this question won’t be a problem. On the other hand if you’re new to the relationship, or you don’t know her very well, you might have to ask friends and family for further advice. Is there a TV show she always rushes home to watch, or is there a subject that she never stops talking about? All you need to do is find a birthday gift for her that is appropriate.
Do you have any fond memories?
Any gift will be far more memorable if there is a certain level of personalisation, whether it’s a Christmas gift, retirement gift, or some other special occasion. Think about the woman you’re buying the present for and the things you love to do together and look for something suitable. Or buy them a gift that will remind her of a memory you share, even if it’s mildly amusing or embarrassing.
Time to give you some awesome birthday gift ideas for her
A digital camera – Is she regularly posting fuzzy pictures on Instagram or Facebook, because her camera phone isn’t up to the task? Give her a gift of the latest digital camera, but make sure you keep out of the way, or you’ll find yourself a regular feature in her news feed.
A meditation cushion or mat – If she loves to unwind and let her cares float away with a spot of meditation, she might appreciate a gift that gives her somewhere comfortable to sit. No more numb butt while she tries to reach nirvana.
A humorous mug – Whether she takes it to the office, or just uses it at home a humorous mug will keep her smiling. They are available with a wide variety of inspiring, funny and loving quotes. It’s up to you to decide.
A spice rack – Many ladies love cooking up a storm in the kitchen, so a rack of spices is going to go down a storm. Or maybe she’d prefer a gift hamper filled with all the ingredients to make her favourite meal.
For the green-fingered ladies – For when the weather is warmer, give her a collection of seeds and gardening tools, so she can spend more time in the garden.
Does she deserve a good night’s sleep? – After all the effort she puts into her day, give her a gift that will ensure a good night’s sleep. A new bed set and comfortable pillows will soon have her in the land of nod.
