If you look at one person, there are many women standing behind them—mothers, daughters, girlfriends, wives, sisters, and best friends. They are there in support, in love, in stamina, and nurturing. They give so much that sometimes it seems no gift will quite repay or say what you want it to. Also, all women are such unique powerful beings that what would make one ecstatic, might make the other cringe. It can be quite tricky to nail down the perfect gift on her birthday or other special occasions. We’ve put together a list of things that just might cover all the bases of the women in your life.
Never Underestimate the Power of…
Bouquet of Flowers
Even if they say they don’t need them, a bouquet or even a single majestic flower will make a female’s heart leap. From a little child to your great-grandma, and every relationship in between, flowers are your everything. The only thing you need to be aware of is if she is allergic to anything in particular. The art to flower picking is in color and style. Pick colors that you know match their kitchen or home, or colors that you know they love. You can fill a room with roses or simply pluck the most stunning local bloom. Try to instill how you feel about her in your life and pick flowers that remind you of that presence.
Women’s Cowboy Boots
A pair of women’s cowboy boots is the advanced version of gift-giving. This is something she will most likely keep for a lifetime. Unless she’s a real cowgirl, then you’ll just be replacing her old worn pairs. Cowboy boots are a fabulous mix of style (which is always important) and function, with a side of adventure. It sends a message that you think of her as a strong, independent, fun, and adventurous spirit. This one takes a bit of investigating since you’ll definitely want to get the shoe size right. Ask friends, family, or be stealthy and check her shoe size when she’s not looking. Boots are so cute with dresses, denim skirts, and, of course, jeans and a t-shirt.
A Spa Facial
This is for the more adult females in your life, but any age from twenty-three to one hundred and eight will think you are the best angel in their life. Not only are facials a way for women to self-care and take a moment to pamper themselves, but they are also a break from a stressful day where someone else is taking care of them. Not to mention, they will literally be glowing from a nurturing slough and scrub. All you need to worry about again is matching her style. If she eats organic and is eco-friendly, book her something at an all-natural spa. If she enjoys glamor and dressing up, pick the appointment two weeks before a big important event, showing her you understand. If you’re not sure she’s into beauty treatments, there are clinical facials that are more simple and straightforward done by certified clinicians that focus on skin health.
The one you’ve been expecting and waiting for—yes, jewelry! Again, many women will deny that they want or need jewelry. This can be even better because they truly will not be expecting it. Any piece of jewelry is adornment and there is nothing like an adorned lady. It can carry a lot of meaning or simply let her know how much you adore her. With any sort of ring, be aware that you will want to be stealthy once again and know her ring size.
A Handwritten Letter
This might seem a bit strange, but the lost art of a handwritten letter will stay in her possession for the rest of her life. There is no better gift for her than knowing how she is cared and loved. Do the special paper, good pen, and envelope. Be authentic.
A Day Off
Every female is taking care of more than just her. Plan a day that is far away from the everyday. Either plan a road trip, or anything that differs from her day to day schedule. Even if it is spent at home, make it a day where all the rules and should-haves disappear. Taking on her responsibilities will relieve her from having to stress that she isn’t doing them.
The Gift of Your Time and Service
This is an important one. Because women give so much, it is especially touching to return the favor. Most are overwhelmed with certain areas of life and would love someone to offer their assistance in getting it done. Whether it is with her car, a skill-based task, or occupying children for a time, this one comes with a lot of gratitude.
