For Your Wife
If you’ve been married for awhile, then you should have a pretty good idea about what to get for your wife for Christmas this year. But for the newly married and for those who don’t know what to get, most women do like jewelry – and no matter what your budget is, you can get beautiful, memorable jewelry pieces.
Look at what type of jewelry she wears and buy something along the same lines. If she doesn’t wear flashy jewels and you rarely see her in sterling silver, then odds are, she won’t like jewelry along those lines.
Because of their brilliant color and meaning, jewelry that contain rubies are a good idea. Giving ruby jewelry signifies love to the person that you’re giving it to, but diamonds are a girl’s best friend for a reason. Pick up diamond earrings, a tennis bracelet, a beautiful ring or teardrop necklace.
Vintage jewelry in rings, necklaces or bracelets are some of the top selling Christmas gifts for wives and you can also get jewelry boxes or a jewelry armoire. Quote bangle bracelets are also popular for 2012.
Silk nightgowns and robes make great gifts for a wife – and gifts that make her feel pampered are good ideas, too. Spa items for the home, as well as gift certificates for her favorite spa procedures are perfect.
Clothing items like cashmere sweaters or cardigans make lovely holiday gifts and are soft and stylish. But she may want to shop for herself. If that’s the case, try to remember her favorite places to shop if she splurges on herself once in awhile, and get a gift card to that store.
CDs of her favorite artists are good ideas if she’s in the car a lot, and so are portable music devices if she doesn’t already have one – and if she does, then upgrade her to a newer model.
More great gift ideas you can get for your wife are romantic movies or movies in other genres that she likes – with a promise that you’ll watch them with her. Boxed television show seasons are also gifts you can get for your spouse.
Tablet computers and e-readers are both gifts your wife would love to have. Many women love to take photos and videos of their loved ones so besides a nice camera, one of the high definition camcorders would also be a great gift.
Look at the gadgets she already has and think of ways you can get her accessories for them. For example, if she already has an iPad, then get her a stylish case for her iPad. You can get expensive ones or ones that fit any budget.
Purses also make great gifts for wives and you can find some great designer bags that she would love to have. If you’re not sure what style she’d like, think about her past purse purchases. Did she like a big, roomy bag, or a small clutch?
Just remember that your wife’s friends and family will be asking what you got her for Christmas. She wants to be able to tell them a gift that reflects your love for her. Choose at least one present that isn’t functional, but heartfelt in nature – something just for her.
