Finding the perfect gift for a woman can be incredibly difficult. As a woman, it’s super hard to know what I want for Christmas when my husband asks, let alone what to get for other women. So, I asked 100 women what they really, truly want for Christmas and this is what they said:
This may sound like a basic gift. But, any way to cut down on time spent in the bathroom getting ready while still looking amazing, is great for any woman.
Everyone could use a break! Watching the kids or bring her dinner will always be a help. Especially for a woman who tends to overextend herself.
I love it when my house smells good. Even if the house is a disaster, if it smells good, then I okay.
She would love it if you were to hire someone to clean the house for a day. But, if that’s something that is not affordable, then kick her out for a night and clean it yourself. Even just doing the dishes for her one night will bring much-needed relief.
No matter how many clothes I have I could always use more. Clothes are constantly being tugged and splashed on, so they don’t tend to last. A new outfit, shoes, handbags or undershirts are always appreciated.
Any form of caffeine in a cute mug wrapped with a bow makes an easy present for neighbors or coworkers. You know how much we women need our caffeine!
Digital Photo Frames
In the age of smartphones, we have a million photos on our phones, but never take the time to print them out and hang them up. A digital photo frame allows her to display her latest photos in a place where she is going to see them.
Dinner is a daily chore at my house, so anything to ease that burden is always appreciated. Whether it is a gift card to go out for dinner, a subscription for a dinner service, or even a homemade frozen dinner that can be popped in the oven on a busy night.
Spending time with family is super important. For a lot of family’s this includes some sort of game. During the time of COVID-19, it’s nice to have new and fun things to do together as a family.
Gift cards make great presents because you don’t have to worry about getting the right size or anything. Make sure not to get her a gift card to a grocery store or something that she will end up spending on the family and not for herself.
Girl dates are such a breath of fresh air! We as women need time with other women and getting that set up by offering to watch the kids or setting a date means the world to us.
Does she have a favorite hobby? Get her something she can use to continue that hobby such as things for knitting, baking, or painting.
The number one answer I received, for what women truly want for Christmas, is a spa day. Women want to relax and buying a simple bath bomb isn’t cutting it anymore. Get her a day at the spa or a massage. If that’s not something you can afford, then buy her something soothing like a muscle foam roller. Or, check out the local beauty schools, because they usually offer a hair wash, head massage, and style for $15 or less.
A great self-care activity for women is getting their nails done. So, we would suggest buying her anything from nail polish, wraps, manicure, or pedicure.
Pillow and Sheets
Sleep is something I can guarantee your woman is not getting enough of. Get her something that is going to help her sleep better like a new pillow or silky sheets.
Women need to stay organized and the start of a new year is the perfect time to buy a planner.
I always just want a nap. Take the kids for an hour or two so I can sleep, and I will love you forever!
Fuzzy Soft Blanket, Socks or Robe
We as women love soft things, especially things that will help us stay warm during winter.
I want chocolate and candy that is all mine!
Trips and Experiences
We want to experience things with our friends or significant other. A day trip to a museum or glass blowing. Or, an overnight stay at a hotel. Anything different and special that we can look forward to.
Yoga is a great way to relax and take some time for herself.
In the end, get something that fits the woman you are shopping for. The perfect gift for a woman is going to fall into one of these three categories: Pampers her, reduces her workload, or is something she wants but would never go out and buy for herself. Happy shopping!
