It’s that time of year again: we’re looking forward to the holidays but can’t help getting caught up in the anxiety of gift giving. We know that giving and receiving gifts should be an act of love and empathy that shows how well you know and how much you care about your family and friends. But the reality is, nobody wants to be ‘that guy’ who gives the dud gift and has to watch the recipient squirm while pretending to love it.
Of course, the purpose of gift-giving isn’t just to ask someone what they want and wrap it up for them (although it’s great when you can). Taking the time and care to select your own present is part of the act of showing you’re thinking of them. So when it comes to buying a gift for the women in your life this year start by considering what they really want. What kind of person are they? What do you know they use a lot or enjoy? After all, the gift should reflect the personality and interests of the receiver – not the giver.
We know, that’s not always as easy as it sounds. Especially if you’re buying gifts for a whole range of people with different likes and interests to your own. So, to make at least one area of this year’s holiday shopping a little easier, we’ve broken down the best gifts to give to the women you care about. And for those on a budget, they’re in price order.
