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
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!
