Before diving in, you need to know that this isn’t your regular “gift ideas for your girlfriend or mom” blog post. You may have gone through several such posts and found them pretty much petty and generic. 80% of what you see is clothing and clothing accessories, and that leaves you even more confused because you wouldn’t know which is suitable for your loved one. Or should you just buy everything?
Your being here reading this blog post means that woman means so much to you. And I want you to know you’re the nicest person in the world for desiring to appreciate her with a gift. But it’s also a great idea to not go with just any gift suggestion but to be thoughtful about it.
So whether it’s her birthday, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, your anniversary, or a holiday gift, this blog post will guide you on choosing the right gift that your loved one would cherish.
Identify her wants
While every gift can be great, some are more preferred than others in certain situations. You can get your wife or mom a new set of comfy loungewear, but if this is the last thing she wants at the moment, she may not really see the value. Sure, she’ll smile and show excitement, but deep within, there’s something else that would have made more sense to her. And she has been showing you the signs.
Think about how often she complains about cramps from work or an intense workout. In this case, a theragun would make her go, “Oh my, you’re such a thoughtful darling!” She can use this device to massage her aches away after every workout session.
Or maybe she’s been talking about how lovely dogs are; you could get her one.
Whether it’s your mom, aunt, or any other loved one that’s so dear to you, always try to identify their needs. You could gift your mom modern household devices to ease her cooking and cleaning.
It all boils down to listening and understanding your woman. Know her desires, and when you can hit that spot without her asking, she’ll fall head over heels in love with you again, be it your lover or mother.
Know her type
Does your woman like gardening? Why not get her an indoor garden? Is she the type that loves donning every latest fashion trend? Then it would be a great idea to Google the latest designers for ladies. It will even help if you’ve been following up with her favorite brands.
She may be the type that cares less about expensive, flashy accessories. But it wouldn’t hurt to surprise her with something valuable and modest. A gemstone customized on a necklace or watch can get that lady leaping onto your body for a super-warm hug.
Then, of course, every woman likes to look and smell nice. From perfumes and body lotions to makeup kits, you just can’t go wrong, be it for your mom or spouse. To make things easier, you can give her one or two curated gift boxes. A curated gift box would typically have a lotion, perfume, makeup, and other beauty products in an all-in-one package.
Each product in a box would be carefully selected for a particular skin type, so you have nothing to worry about. And the good news is you can create your own customized package by choosing what you feel is best for the woman who means the world to you.
If she desires to keep in shape but is finding it hard, perhaps you can get her home gym equipment if you can afford it. It all boils down to what you know your woman will cherish. Getting the right gift for a woman is all about being thoughtful.
Remember that a woman can never have too much
I’ll tell you a little secret, but do keep it between us: a woman never has too many wears!
Your woman will always appreciate it when you buy her beautiful clothes and accessories no matter how many she already has. Even when her closet is already overflowing, she’d still appreciate a smart pair of sneakers, a cashmere jacket, dinner gown, leather pants, or hot pair of undies. Keep her looking great, and she’ll always be the most beautiful woman ever! Get her a new watch, and she’ll think about you whenever she checks the time!
However, if you’re getting a gift for your family member, do not go for items that are too personal. Avoid anything like undies; instead, go for jewelry, handbags, shoes, perfumes, watches, jackets, books, phones, or anything you know your loved one would cherish. Hell yeah, it could even be a car if you can afford it!
Some thoughtful gift ideas for your mom in 2021
Revlon hair dryer
If your mom loves her hair as much as she loves you, then a good dryer is the best gift you can ever give her.
For the woman who has refined taste in wine, getting her an expensive wine would be so much fun. Better still, you could purchase a wine subscription to keep her home bar ever-flowing.
Curated gift boxes
Think your mom is getting old? Why not get her looking ravishing again with some all-in-one beauty-product gift box? She’ll appreciate it even more obsessively if she’s a skincare geek.
Digital cooking equipment
If your mom especially loves cooking, why not make it even more fun for her? You can get her a digital meat thermometer, an automatic pan stirrer with a timer, or any other smart kitchen appliance.
For the mom who loves working out, you can never go wrong with a pair of leggings. You can put the icing on the cake by adding a lovely pair of sneakers (get the right size).
A vacuum cleaner
Make things more manageable around the house by giving your mum a modern vacuum cleaner like the Shark Navigator. If she has a large property and is having trouble keeping it clean, she’d greatly appreciate how thoughtful you are.
Now, this one is a no-brainer. Your mom will definitely love a beautiful watch, a necklace with an adorable pendant, and a pair of matching earrings.
The best gift for your mom, wife, sister, aunt, or girlfriend is that which they secretly long for. Discover that, and you’ve hit your target.
However, never go beyond your financial capacity. Whatever gift you give, let it be out of love and not out of compulsion.
