Yes, we often give hints, at least I do. But just in case you haven’t taken these hints then pick gifts that will complement her beauty and nurture her as a treasured person. Gifts which are meaningful, romantic or adventurous are certain winners. Also, the fact that you have taken the effort to buy her a gift means a lot especially if you are not someone who gifts often.

Spa hamperJewelry: Jewelry, particularly of diamonds is a perennial favorite. It being a high priced item, you need to budget it well in advance. A solitaire is an exquisite gift, always and a perfect gift for your anniversary.  For other occasions consider a necklace, a bracelet, earrings, a brooch or an anklet. Do consider the style and content of the jewelry she fancies and buy accordingly. Some women love statement jewelry while some prefer delicate stuff. So glance through her collection but don’t make it obvious! In case she prefers elegant clothes, then a set of freshwater pearls would be well matched. If you have children, then gift a mother’s ring to her with a birthstone for each child. It is emotionally striking. You may also consider a charm bracelet.

Gift a Spa packageSpa Gifts: Pamper her on her special day or give her a day’s break at the spa after she has worked for days to deck up your home for the festive season. A gift basket with her favorite bath products is a great idea. Pair a new robe with matching slippers, aromatherapy candles, lotions, salts and oils. Include a loofah and body scrubs also. Help your wife relax at home or else, gift her gift certificates for a package of manicure, pedicure, facials or massage at a local spa. Though she will not mention, this is one break she definitely needs. If you have kids, please take care of them for a day.

Give her a day off: This does not mean that she is trapped at home and you have to let her off one day. A woman, whether a wife, girlfriend or mother, should have a personal life. Take all the responsibilities that she handles for a day. Take care of your home, kids or anything else and let her spend the day like a spinster – shopping, chatting with friends or meeting them. This is a perfect gift for a woman who does not step out of home often and will surely be appreciated.

Cook for Her: Rise up early and make her a cup of tea and breakfast but don’t put the kitchen on fire. Don’t try anything fancy. Even a sandwich or toast can melt her heart. Women just want to feel special. So the gifts don’t have to be very expensive..it is the feeling behind the gift that matters (most of the times :P)

Cook For Her

A second Honeymoon: Any married woman would be thrilled with a romantic second or even third honeymoon. You may choose any place, though it is preferable to go to the same destination as you were newlyweds. A candle lit dinner and a romantic evening would be unforgettable. Who doesn’t love it?

Housekeeping services: In case your wife is a working woman and rushed for time, consider housekeeping services for several months, so that her burden is lessened. It shows you truly care. She would be happy to spend time back home with the family and tend to herself better.

Lingerie: Lingerie is a very personal and romantic gift that every wife loves to receive from her husband. Your wife would love to be gifted pretty innerwear Buy only if you are confident of the sizes or else an appropriate gift certificate would be fine. With innerwear as gift your wife would undoubtedly feel more beautiful, when the lingerie accentuates her features and make her more desirable.

Clothing and Accessories: You can never go wrong with these. Though they may not be included in the list of novel gift ideas for women but they are a savior when you are picking something in a rush. (Imagine forgetting your partner’s birthday). The list of accessories for women is endless. There are a wide variety of women’s watches to choose from. A matching watch to her favorite dress would be well suited. If she loves handbags, get her a branded one. A pair of glares is also a good idea.

[quote]“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” – William A. Ward[/quote]

Write to her: We know men are not very expressive when it comes to feelings. But for a change do it. Pen down all that you feel about her (only good things obviously!) in a letter and hand it over to her with a bunch of flowers. Tell her how important she is and what would you be if she was not around. The reaction may be teary eyes but they are definitely tears of joy and the letter will stay with her forever and ever.

Personalized Letter

[quote]”The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.” – Pierre Corneille, Le Menteur[/quote]

Whatever the gift you buy for the woman in your life, make sure it is wrapped attractively, personalized with her name. An attractive gift wrapping is like half the game won. Also make sure that it is straight from the heart and not just an obligation. It will help you choose better gifts.

[quote]“In giving, a man receives more than he gives, and the more is in proportion to the worth of the thing given.” – George MacDonald[/quote]

So don’t wait. Plan ahead and make all the forthcoming occasions in her life memorable. You are sure to receive lots of love as a return gift.
