Unique and Great Gifts for Women

By Charles Hopkins Published 10/26/2007 | Women
Finding the perfect gift for a woman, be her your mother, sister, friend, wife, or girlfriend, is really not that hard.  You only need to try to remember little details about her such as what she likes to do on a lazy Sunday afternoon, what brings her to tears, makes her smile and laugh, her beliefs, and such.

You must remember that women are very sentimental, and they pay attention to the little details that would seem irrelevant to other people.  Its those small things about her that could give you clues as to what to get her for special occasions or just on regular days that you want to make her feel extra special.

Different Women, Different Gifts

There is nothing more annoying than to receive something that everybody else got.  Giving a generic gift to everyone is thoughtless and just a little insensitive because it means you didnt bother thinking about the person youre giving the gift to, and you regarded this particular tradition as more of an obligation rather than something enjoyable and selfless.

Remember that gifts need not be expensive.  The important thing is that it represents how you feel about the recipient of your gift, and it expresses her importance to you.  Bear in mind that what one woman wants may not be the same thing that another one would regard as highly.  Hence, its good to think about the person and the gift beforehand.

If its someone you dont really know, say, an acquaintance you just met, try to find out something about her.

Gift Ideas

For great gift ideas, you can surf the internet and pick a few favorites before choosing one particular gift.  Here are a few suggestions on picking the perfect gift for women.

Mother:
1.    Pashmina
2.    Book
3.    Slippers

Remember that these are only suggestions, and you may find that the ones for your partner are more expensive than the rest.  In this area, you want her to feel a little more special than any other woman in your life.  Thats just how it goes.

Personalized and Customized Gifts

You can also choose to get her personalized or customized gifts.  This is even more exciting because you really took the time to put together everything you know about her and incorporate it all in your gift.

Online gift shops can customize almost anything for you to make the recipient of your gift extremely happy.  If you dont know what to get her but you have a lot of ideas on what she wants, you may also ask their help in coming up with great gift ideas.

The point is that your gift should mean something for both you and the one youre giving it to you, with regards to how you feel about the woman; and her, for how the gift will possibly make her feel.
