Gift Ideas For Her
  • | October 4, 2016
Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, or “just because” your gift giving game needs to be strong. Getting your special gal a great gift that never fails can be a lot to ask of us guys, but that’s why we’re here to help.

Don’t get bogged down with the old standbys: flowers are played out, and a box of chocolates now comes with creamy, unimaginative clichéd centers. No, it’s time to step things up a notch and that’s why we’ve put together a list of the top 5 great gifts that never fail her.

  1. Massage and Spa Treatments. Women, by and large, love the relaxation and pampering that massages and spas can offer. Whether it’s a deep tissue massage or a full body seaweed wrap (yes, that’s a thing), if she’s into relaxation you can’t go wrong with a good spa day. As a bonus, if it’s something you’re into as well, many spas offer couples packages for the two of you to share.

  2. Subscription Boxes. Monthly subscription boxes are huge these days and there’s one to choose from for nearly every hobby. Here’s where paying attention comes in handy, guys. What do your lady like? Candy? Cookies? Coffee and tea? There’s a box for all of those and more. Not only does this gift say “I know you and what you like,” but the subscription model means it doesn’t break your bank and with a new box each month it literally is the gift that keeps on giving.

  3. Kindle or other eBook reader. If your lady loves to read and hasn’t made the switch to the 21st century with an e-reader yet, this couldn’t be a more perfect gift. Kindle’s are lightweight, portable, easy to use, and with each new model they become more affordable. Not only that, but once she has it there are literally thousands of compatible accessories, apps, magazines, books, and other items that you can now add to your gift-giving repertoire.

  4. Romantic Getaway. This one has the added bonus of being a gift for you too! Not every trip has to be to some exotic, expensive location either. No matter where you live, there are plenty of quaint bed and breakfasts or couples retreat style destinations. Go horseback riding in the mountains, lounge alongside a tranquil lake, or cuddle next to a roaring fire at a snowy lodge. The experience is the present and the memories will last a lifetime.

  5. Surprise her with dinner. Not a night out. One you cook yourself. If cooking isn’t you thing, then sign the two of you up for a cooking class together. You’ll both learn something and have a fun night out in the process.

At the end of the day, it is important to keep your eyes and ears open. Women tend to be less secretive than men so if you pay attention you’ll be able to pick up on the hints she’s dropping. Also pay close attention to her interests or even better, something that solves a problem or makes her life easier. When you get her a gift that shows you put some thought behind it you’ll score more points than the old standbys of flowers and candy.

Good luck.
