They say it’s the thought that counts, but being spoilt for choice in this modern world can make it difficult when it comes to buying gifts for women. There are too many options, and when most women already have everything they need, getting them something they want can be complicated. For anyone struggling to find the right gift, here’s a short list of ideas every woman will love and cherish.
Makeup & Cosmetic Cases
Women love makeup, but buying makeup for another person, even if you know them well, can be risky. It’s not easy knowing the right brand, the right product, the right ingredients… There are just too many variables and buying the wrong shade of anything will guarantee it never gets worn.
There’s one beauty product however that doesn’t require quite so much customisation. We’re, of course, talking about a makeup case. Makeup cases are the perfect gift for any makeup lover. They are both practical and pretty, and help keep makeup organised in one easy-to-find, mobile home.
Flash New Hair Brush
This is another safe buy when it comes to self-care for women. In terms of hair products, brushes are at the bottom of the list of investments and something that rarely gets upgraded or replaced, despite being a vital tools for your hair health and look.
So, surprise someone special with a brand new, clean and beautifully designed brush. You can opt for a simple brush or choose something more specific to hair type or styling. The new it thing is having a quality hair straightener brush that doubles as a hair styling tool; a nice ‘just because’ gift for every woman that spends a lot of time waiving a straightener around.
Bling & Other Pretty Things
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but jewellery, in general, features in our close circle as well. If she loves wearing jewellery, then you’re all settled. Jewellery is personal and makes a great milestone gift that will long outlast the occasion.
Women have individual taste when it comes to jewellery, however, and the best thing you can do before buying something is take a look at their current collection. Try to figure out which piece she loves the most, and whether they’re predominantly silver or gold.
Maybe she loves earrings, but never wears necklaces. Research is crucial for finding the perfect piece, but once you do, it will all be worth it when you see the look of joy on her face.
For something even more special, unique, one-off handmade jewellery shows her she’s unlike anyone else and you’ve gone the extra mile to find something extra special that nobody else has.
Wine, Dine or Pamper
The perfect gift doesn’t have to come neatly wrapped in a box. Think about what her perfect day or evening would look like and organise a pampering package. It should be a time for her to relax and enjoy, whether that’s getting a manicure, visiting a luxurious day spa, or enjoying a facial treatment.
You could even book a massage, take her out to one of Melbourne’s best restaurants or just make her breakfast in bed… It doesn’t need to be expensive, it just has to be thoughtful and out of the ordinary!
