Gift Ideas for Her


Sometimes it can be difficult to come up with gift ideas for woman in your life, whether it’s your Grandma, Mom, or Girlfriend. I think sometimes it’s even harder for guys. (It is for me when trying to find something for the men in my life.) So we’ve done a brainstorm of ideas you could get your grandma, mom, girlfriend and wife.

We’ve sorted the list for you based on how much trouble you could be in if you don’t give a thoughtful gift. Chances are your Nana will be more forgiving than your girlfriend or wife.

I worked retail enough years in college to know that many guys are overwhelmed this time of year and end up wandering the mall on Christmas eve, desperately trying to find something, anything.

Guys, remember gifts with cords attached to them are not always the best idea unless you know it’s something she wants. Tread lightly…There are some ideas on this list that could be hit or miss depending on how each woman feels about her “role” in the family. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, force yourself to sit through the movie, Father Of the Bride, to see what happens when the fiance gives the bride-to-be a blender. He thought she might like to blend something, she took it as “a woman’s place is in the kitchen.”

Whatever the occasion, if you’re looking for some fresh ideas, we’ve got a few to keep you going throughout birthdays and holidays to come.
