The holiday season comes with elves on shelves, fun festivities, and twinkling tinsel, but it also comes with a tremendous amount of pressure for many of us. Whether you have been happily married for years or you are getting cozy with a special someone, shopping for the woman in your life during the holiday season can be a challenge.
We have put together a few pieces of advice to help your gift-giving experience be a great one. Consider the tips below your “stocking stuffers” from Diamonds Forever:
Ask Her Family and Friends
You might think that you can find the perfect gift with no assistance. However, we highly suggest asking your loved one’s family or friends what she might want this year. If she has a sister, she has likely told her sister what she is hoping for this holiday season. Her best friend likely has screenshots of her “ideals” that she sent to her in hopes that you’d ask. Family and friends are typically thrilled to play a role in picking out the perfect present. Trust us, she is expecting you to ask them and they will have good insight. Swallow your pride, put down the gingerbread house kit, and get some answers.
Listen for Her Hints
If the two of you ever go shopping together, she has probably pointed out (on several occasions) different things that she likes or what stores that she prefers. If she points something specific out to you, silently take note of it until you get a chance to put it into your phone. If you purchase something that she has told you in passing that she would want, we have no doubt that you will make the nice list for months to come. When you are out at the stores shopping for family and friends, listen for potential indicators of what she might want for herself. You’ll know exactly what to get her and she’ll get exactly what she wanted.
Look at Her Pinterest Board
The key to a woman’s heart is through her Pinterest board. You might wonder what she spends so much time looking at on Pinterest and it could very well be the perfect holiday gift. In the midst of her pinning plum pudding recipes, she likely has a board packed with purses, jewelry, and outfits that she thinks she will never really receive. If you don’t have your own Pinterest, ask a mutual friend to take a look at hers and send you a few recent pins that could work well as potential gifts. Buying her something off of her Pinterest will guarantee that you are purchasing something she has genuine desire for with no expectation to ever really own it.
