Face it fellas, shopping for women isn’t easy. You know it and we know it. I’ve learned over the years it’s easier on everyone if I give my husband a list of exactly what I want. So, in order to make your Christmas gift giving easier than ever before, here’s a list of hand-picked items she’s sure to love.
There’s nothing like a warm & cozy blanket to curl up with. This throw is made from 100% Alapaca wool. It is super soft, light, and beautifully designed. Add a few chocolates & a new book and you’re set.
Every girl needs a perfect go-to chambray top. This one from The Studio Shirt is soft, fitted, feminine, and can be dressed up or down. These shirts are tailored so check the tag on something she regularly wears. If you’re not sure, go a size up.
A good pair of sneakers are ideal for running to the store, playing with the kids, or even grabbing a quick bite with friends. The Monterey Varsity are stylish and comfortable. Check her size before ordering to make sure she can wear them as soon as they are unwrapped.
Looking for a new hobby to do with each other? How about exploring! Give her these lightweight hiking shoes from Teva, a couple granola bars, map, and ask her to join you. She won’t be able to refuse.
Want to take it up another notch? Grab one of these Topo Rover bags. They are a great size for a day hike and made to withstand many, many miles. Also, the colors and design are a big hit.
Now this one is a splurge but I LOVE it! The Uuni Woodfire Oven is hands down one the kitchen gadgets that gets me all sorts of excited. It burns real wood pellets and reaches 900 degrees Fahrenheit – perfect for making homemade pizzas with the family or friends. It is also relatively light-weight so it can be taken to the cabin for the weekend or easily stored when not in use. Having tried (and mostly failed) to make pizza that is crisp on the bottom and browned on the top, this is high on my list this year.
Every woman loves jewelry. This handmade brass cuff will pair perfectly with anything. It’s light, dainty, and beautiful.
These leather ‘tacos’ are just what’s need to wrap up headphones and charger cords. They are a great, simple design that is easy to use and throw in our purse.
Girls like tools too. No, I don’t mean the douchey guys that try to pick up on us while at the grocery store but real, actual tools. This particular one is small and compact, the size of a pen – perfect for fixing that loose screw on our sunglasses, replacing batteries, or quick jobs around the house. Best part is that the extra bits are stored inside the casing so we don’t have to going searching around for the right size.
Ok, I know this one is unexpected and maybe a little strange to buy for your woman but a pocket knife is an incredibly useful item to have in one’s possession. You never know when you are going to need to cut open a package, remove something tangled up, remove a splinter, or (eek!) use it in self-defense. This knife by Damascus is beautiful. Teach her how to use it and how to carry it and I guarantee it will help her in a bind down the road.
Don’t forget stocking stuffers! Stockings often get overlooked and end up being a mash of random items thrown in to fill it up. Don’t let this happen to you. These items are all small enough to fit inside a stocking and are sure to put a smile on her face:
These are just a few ideas to help you along the gift-giving way. If she’s told you that there’s something specific she wants – GET IT. If she’s played the always fun, “I don’t really care” or “I don’t want anything this year” game, then this is a great list that will provide her with something that she will actually like and make you look like a rockstar.
