Christmas sales started earlier than ever this year. After a year of less than robust sales, online and brick-and-mortar retailers converted to red-and-green colour schemes and began offering their best prices of the year when Christmas was still more than two months away. There’s a chance that you’ve taken advantage of those sales and started your own holiday shopping a bit early.
On the other hand, there’s also a chance that you were blindsided by this whole “early Christmas” thing, and you’re still not entirely sure what you’re going to get for your loved ones. That might be especially true of the lady in your life. You want her gift to be the best one of them all. You want her to know that you really put some time into thinking about it – but at the same time, right now is your opportunity to get the best possible prices.
If you’re still trying to figure out what the perfect gift for the lady in your life might be, this is the article for you. We’ve done the brainstorming for you, and these are some gift ideas that she will absolutely love you for.
Wow Her With Designer Jewelry Worn By Taylor Swift
If you’re trying to choose the best Christmas gift for your girlfriend or wife, one thing is certain: You can never go wrong with something that sparkles. If you really want to go the extra mile, though, don’t just go to a mall jeweller – buy a truly spectacular piece from a luxury designer like Porter Lyons.
Based in New Orleans, Porter Lyons has designed pieces worn by a number of celebrities including Taylor Swift, Jessica Alba, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lawrence – and although Porter Lyons is a luxury brand, they have items available at a wide range of prices. Every piece is special and has its own unique story to tell, and she’ll be absolutely awestruck by the beauty and craftsmanship.
Whisk Her Away For A Relaxing Staycation
Travelling is a lot of fun, but who says that you need to leave town to have a great vacation? In just about every medium or large city, it’s almost guaranteed that there will be at least one luxury hotel – and staying at a great hotel for a few nights is going to feel like a spectacular vacation even if that hotel happens to be in your hometown.
The lady in your life will certainly love having a chance to put her feet up and let someone else do the cooking and cleaning for a few days – and the restaurants at high-end hotels are often world-class. To give your lady an experience she’ll never forget, book a stay at a hotel with a spa and treat her to a day of pampering.
Make Her Feel Like A Star With A Personal Tailoring Session
Speaking of pampering, what could possibly make a lady feel more special than wearing clothes made specifically for her? No two bodies are exactly alike, and off-the-shelf clothing is problematic for many women. A piece of clothing that fits perfectly in one area often isn’t quite right in another area, and that leads to a lot of unpleasant experiences in fitting rooms.
Tailors alter clothing to meet the needs of the wearer, and that allows for a perfect fit every time. If you’ve ever known someone who looked absolutely flawless in every outfit, that person’s secret probably wasn’t a perfect body – it was probably tailored clothing.
Tailored clothing makes people look better and feel more confident, and it’s often surprisingly affordable. For an extra-special Christmas gift, though, you want to do something more than simply altering her existing wardrobe. Instead, look for a tailor who can make custom clothing from scratch. A bespoke dress isn’t cheap, but it’s a truly one-of-a-kind item that should last years if it’s well cared for.
Treat Her To An Indulgent Hobby Item
If you’ve been with your special lady for a while, you probably know about all of her hobbies – and as you’ve probably experienced in your own life, it can sometimes be hard to justify spending a lot of money on something that has no real purpose other than your own amusement. Your lady probably feels the same way about her hobbies, and that’s an opportunity to treat her to something that she’d be hesitant to buy for herself. Here are just a few ideas to get you started.
- If she enjoys video games, buy her a professional controller. Pro-grade video game controllers can improve game performance because they’re incredibly precise. They’re also quite comfortable to hold, and some controllers offer additional comfort options by allowing the owner to swap buttons and sticks for components with different shapes and textures.
- If she enjoys photography, buy a high-end telephoto lens that can attach magnetically to her phone. A telephoto lens can greatly enhance a phone’s optical zoom capabilities, making it possible to capture dramatic photos.
- If she enjoys reading, buy a leather-bound collector’s edition of her favourite book – or hunt for a first edition.
- If she enjoys sports, buy a piece of game-used equipment from her favourite team. Items like game-used pads, hats and batting gloves aren’t cheap, but they’re plentiful enough that you won’t have to break the bank to buy one.
Give Her the Ultimate Relaxing Day at Home
Some people enjoy getting out and seeing the world during the holidays, and others would rather just have a little time to unwind. If the lady in your life falls into the second category, you can make yourself a hero by treating her to the ultimate day of relaxation at home. Start by ordering some ready-to-bake pastries from an online food delivery service and surprising her with breakfast in bed.
You can also order lunch and dinner at the same time, so all of the day’s meals will be taken care of – and all you’ll need to do is heat them up. Buy some big pillows and a fuzzy blanket to throw on the couch and enjoy a relaxing day of movies or video games. For an extra-special ending, sneak away at some point during the day to replace her bedding with some new high-end linens and down pillows. The new bedding will be a lasting reminder of the perfect day that the two of you enjoyed at home.
