The best gift shows you know her well

The best gift shows you know her well

A perfect present for one woman could be absolutely useless to the next. Keep the tastes and personalities of your recipients in mind when shopping for gifts, and you’re sure to develop a great reputation as a thoughtful and generous gift-giver!

  • For the bold, trend-setting lady in your life, try an Furmani fashion handbag black. These funky florals aren’t for everyone, though, so pay attention to the other fashion products she wears. Does she like to dress up and go out? Does she have clothes to go with a bag like this? If yes, go for it!
  • If she’s into fine food and drink, your options are practically endless. Think a gift certificate to the new restaurant in town, the season’s latest cookbook or a simple hanging wine rack to showcase her beverage collection.
  • Is she a sports fan? Tickets or sports memorabilia are classic gifts and show that you really are paying attention when she’s venting about her team’s latest loss or celebrating their victory.

The most important idea here is just to know your recipient well. Pay attention to what she talks and cares about on a day-to-day basis, and you’ll have inspiration in no time.

Buying girly gifts on a budget

Buying girly gifts on a budget

Too many gifts to buy? Sometimes, you just can’t afford to spend a lot on someone. But that doesn’t mean the quality of your gift has to suffer! Here are a few tips on gifts that won’t break the bank:

  • If you’re looking for small budget gifts for multiple people, consider buying in bulk. Candy or chocolate tins that would be too expensive individually are often extremely marked down when you buy wholesale or online. Check out our great selection!
  • Items that are slightly off season are often cheaper, as well. Check out vintage inspired handbag with stylish beaded or floral designs in the summer, for example, or flip-flop sandals in the winter. You can even stock up on a few generic gift items so you won’t be caught empty-handed. For a more detailed purse buying guide, check out our Handbag Tip Center.
  • And the absolute cheapest gift is one you make out of materials you already own. Clean out your pantry and try a new pastry recipe, or refresh some old bamboo picture frames with plastic buttons, pieces of glass and other trinkets you find lying around. Save money and be unique!

Don’t automatically assume that a particular gift item is outside your budget, either. Search all your ideas on Become.com—you never know when you’ll stumble upon one of our top deals!

Thank your female coworker with a professional gift

Thank your female coworker with a professional gift

Hardly anyone gets along with all their coworkers, but usually there are one or two special work friends who make your workday bearable. It can be tricky to show your thanks. What kinds of gifts convey appreciation without breaching professionalism?

  • One rule of thumb is to think of items your coworker could wear to or use at work. A pearl cuff bracelet is a classic option, because it gives your coworker a pretty treasure to show off while remaining completely workplace appropriate.
  • If you’re good at baking, bringing treats to the office is a widely accepted method of thanking your coworkers for their teamwork and companionship. This gift is especially popular around the holidays, but baked goods will generally go over well no matter what the season. Or, reward the whole office by keeping a full crystal candy dish on your desk at all times. Just keep it simple, and remember to consider people’s allergies.
  • The workplace is for working, and if you really want to show your appreciation for a special coworker, take on some of her work for a day or two. Answer the phones or volunteer for an extra project—as long as it doesn’t violate company policy, of course.

Be “sister psychic” and find her the perfect gift

Be

Even though you’ve probably known your sister about as long as you can remember, she can be one of the most difficult to shop for of women in your life, especially if you no longer see each other too often, but even if you live under the same roof. Read on for some suggestions that will please even the evilest stepsister.

  • If you still live with your sister, you can always volunteer to take her turn walking the dog or emptying out the dishwasher. You save money, and she gets a relaxing day off.
  • You’ve watched your sister grow up, struggling with different looks until she find what’s right for her. Help her out by giving her a clothing or accessory item that looks good on anyone, like a houndstooth dress or cute ballet flats. She’ll think of you every time she gets a compliment on her stylish outfit!
  • Everyone has to give gifts every so often, so give your sister the gift or easier gift-giving with a cheap home craft kit! She’ll enjoy experimenting with scrapbooking, needlepoint and more in her free time, and when she’s next in your shoes, she can hand-make cards or custom frame pictures with ease.

Great grandma gifts for any occasion

Great grandma gifts for any occasion

Shopping for grandma can be particularly difficult because of the generation gap. If you don’t have much in common with your parent’s parent, how can you choose the perfect gift for her? Plus, many elderly women already have a lot of stuff—so much so that they aren’t really looking to be bogged down with any more. Here are a few solutions:

  • An easy fix for both these issues is to give grandma something temporary. If you have culinary skills, thank her for years of a well-stocked chocolate chip cookie jar by cooking for her. If you’re artistically inclined, make her a fun wreath for the upcoming season.
    • Some everyday items are likely to wear out—think clothes, kitchenware and garden tools, to name a few. So you couldn’t go wrong surprising grandma with a pair of oasis shoes to replace her falling-apart everyday shoes. Trendy but also unlikely to swing far out of style, these shoes are a perfect balance between practical and fashionable. She’ll love ‘em. For a more detailed shoe buying guide, check out our Shoe Tip Center.
    • She may also enjoy a pair of arthritis gloves. If she is experiencing pain from arthritis then this will show her that you care and are able to provide some form of relief.

Gifts that show appreciation for mom

Gifts that show appreciation for mom

When was the last time your mom made a sacrifice so that something would be easier for you? Probably sometime around yesterday, or maybe even this morning! How do you show your appreciation?

  • While her kids are still at home, a mom often has her hands full with the job of raising a family. So give her back some time! Draw or print coupons for kitchen clean-ups or trips to the supermarket, or just pitch in without being asked. Mom will notice and appreciate your help, and you don’t spend a cent.
  • Sometimes when a mom tries to follow the latest fashion trends, her kids wind up embarrassed. Take the initiative and give her something she can wear in public with you that won’t make you want to run for the nearest shelter—try Scala hats for a classic look you’ll both love. Choose from a variety of styles in straw, wool felt, paper braid and more.
  • Many a mom loves trinkets or keepsakes that will remind her of you for years to come. Handmade is always nice—think that plaster handprint you made in preschool that’s still up on the wall—but if you choose to buy something, just make sure it reflects both of your tastes. Items that come in a range of prices, like earrings or a pretty angel wind chimes, work best.

Indulge the wife you love

Indulge the wife you love

After years of marriage, not much needs to be said or repeated too often. Your wife knows you trust and rely on her with each passing day. So when giving her a special gift, your goal is to remind her of more carefree and romantic days between you. Depending on how much time and money you want to spend, here are some suggestions:

  • Your wife probably works hard on a fairly regular basis to keep the pantry full and the house clean. Reward her with a set of foot massagers, and be sure to offer her the first test run. Or step up your game and invest in a deluxe massage table for your home. Help her relax her tired muscles in utmost comfort.
  • For a professional massage treat, surprise your wife with a day at the spa next time you want to celebrate. This is a particularly fun gift because you can tag along!
  • When you’re married, especially with kids, time spent together can fall by the wayside. The solution? Escape together for a fun romantic weekend—longer if you can! Popular getaways include Carmel-by-the-sea, Maui and Miami Beach.

Refresh your wife and your marriage with these indulge-worthy gifts. Check Become.com for the best deals!

Send the right message to your girlfriend

Send the right message to your girlfriend

There are a couple of tricks to choosing a gift for your girlfriend. You have to guess what she wants, of course, but you also have to decide a few things about yourself—like how much you’re willing to spend, and what the gift will convey about the status of your relationship. Here’s how to strike a balance:

  • If your relationship is pretty low-key and you want to keep it that way, give her something that you’ll enjoy, too. A square game table is a good option—she’ll recognize that it’s not super romantic, but who can complain about a gift that comes guaranteed with more time spent together? Enjoy everything from poker to Risk on these versatile tables.
  • A great gift for showing you care—but not too much—is something handmade, like a drawing or painting of the two of you together. If you have no artistic ability, take a photograph to an artist and have something professionally done. Or, just frame the photograph!
  • Make her the envy of all her friends with a an art deco diamond pendant. You’ll show a commitment to the relationship because you’re willing to spend your hard-earned cash—but not too much if you find great deals on Become.com!—and she gets to gush to all her girls. Choose from elegant, simple designs or go for something more elaborate.
