Top 5 Best Gifts for Girlfriend and Wife
1. Lifetime Jewelry Rope Chain
Recommended Birthday/Christmas Gifts For New Girlfriend
If you are looking for Christmas gift ideas for girlfriend or valentine gifts for girlfriend, you really can’t go wrong with jewelry. One important thing to learn before buying any jewelry is whether your girlfriend is more into silver or gold. This is easy to tell because they will definitely wear one or the other more frequently.
If you have decided that your girlfriend does like gold, perhaps she would like the lifetime Jewelry Rope chain, which is 24k diamond cut. Normally, braided chain jewelry tends to be for girls that are a bit older, but they should work for most girls in their 20s. This is a stylish and sophisticated look and is definitely meant to be worn with dress clothes. The good news is, it is such a basic design that it goes with just about any outfit. This is a pretty safe bet if you aren’t too fashion savvy. You can also choose which size you want from 16 to 36 inches and you can choose either rhodium-plated bronze of yellow-gold-plated-bronze.
2. Obosoyo Women's Waterproof Handbags
Handbags Are the Second Best Gift for Women
If jewelry isn’t your thing, a handbag is also a good bet. Almost every girl has one and they need to be replaced every couple of years so these are good gifts for girlfriend. This one from Obosoyo is waterproof and extra large to fit all of your things. If your girlfriend is in school, this gift is perfect because it is big enough to fit books in as well.
The dimensions are 11.4”x11.8”x10.2” and inside the bag you will find a removable inner bag as well as a zip up pocket for storing small items like a cell phone or some money. The whole bag has a snap button to close itself easily, which is nice especially when you open and close your bag 50 times a day to get your phone and wallet out. The look is very simple and stylish and is sure to go with most outfits. This is a great relief for us because it takes a lot of the guesswork out. The best part about this bag is it’s made with high quality Italian synthetic leather so no one had to die in order to make it!
3. Stylish Top Handle Tote PU Leather Handbag
The next item on our list is also a handbag but it is a little bit different. It is slightly larger and instead of coming with a smaller bag inside, it comes with multiple small pockets. There are two main large compartments within the bag along with a zipper compartment in the middle, one small zipper pocket and two side pouches to hold smaller things like a cell phone and keys. This is great if your girlfriend is very organized and likes to have everything separated. The good thing about this bag is it’s good for all sorts of different occasions. If you are looking for gifts for your girlfriend and want to be sure to choose something she’ll use everyday, this is the best option. You can take it to work, to class, out shopping and wear it with formal attire. You really can’t go wrong and it is also super affordable.
4. 18pc Knife Block Set
A Good Gift for Wife
This is a great gift for girls in their late 20s and early 30s, especially if you have already moved in with her. I know this isn’t what comes to mind when you think of a gift for girlfriend, but hear me out! How many times has your girlfriend asked you to put the silverware back in the right place or told you that you’re using the wrong knife? Now you not only have everything organized in one console, but you also get the opportunity to start learning the names of each type of knife and familiarizing yourself with their uses. This is the gift that keeps on giving. Say goodbye to cluttered draws and say hello to better, less frustrating cooking!
5. Best Essential Oil Diffuser - Best Gift for Her
Next on the list is a bit of a fun one. One of the hardest things for us to deal with is seeing our girlfriends get stressed out. It is only natural to worry about them and want to help them in whatever way possible. For that reason, why not have this be the year you finally get into aromatherapy? Imagine waking up to an invigorating peppermint scent, or coming home to a relaxing sitrus or ginger fragrance. For the price, an aromatherapy diffuser is probably the best you can do in terms of improving the overall vibe of your house or apartment or dorm room. It is a simple purchase that can make all the difference. You want your girlfriends room to be a calm and welcoming environment for her after a long day. This is another gift that's seems to keep on giving every single breath you take.
They say it's the thought that counts, but sometimes that isn’t enough when it comes to your girlfriend. I hope that you end up finding something to get her this Christmas because otherwise you are really going to have to go all out when it comes to getting valentine's day gifts for girlfriend.
Most important thing about christmas gift ideas for girlfriend
The most important thing to keep in mind is there should be a lot of thought that goes into the gift you get. While it is easy to just get what all of your friends are getting for their girlfriends, you want to find something that is unique to her and shows that you care about her and listen to her. The fact that you knew here enough to pick out the gift is enough of a present and then the gift itself is just a bonus.
Things to remember when getting good gifts for girlfriend
My general gift giving guidelines are usually to find something they would use almost everyday, but something they wouldn’t get for themselves. Sometimes I buy baskets full of food for relatives and instead of just doing their grocery shopping for them, I try to pick out things that are just a little too fancy for them to get on the day to day but things that I know they would like. This applies to girlfriends as well. If you’re picking out clothes (which I would only recommend for the most experienced boyfriends and girlfriends) don’t just get them a three pack of jeans from target, make sure to really get something they would like to have but might seem a little too special for them to get themselves.
Easy gifts for a girlfriend
If you are just looking for easy gifts to get a girlfriend, just go with jewelry. It may not be the best idea to go for something as predictable as this, but even here you can add your own variety to it and show her that you care. Make sure you find out whether she is a silver or a gold, and find out what her favorite gemstone is. Some girls are crazy about turquoise, and others are not so much. An easy trick here is just start paying attention to what she is currently wearing over the next couple of days and try to get something that compliments that.
Other gift ideas for girlfriend
If you are not so into the materialism of the holidays, there are a few ways you can get your girlfriend a nice present without having to give her yet another thing. Set aside some time for you and her to do a fun activity you will both enjoy. Maybe there is a concert in town sometime next year for her favorite artist, or maybe you want to plan a weekend trip away to spend some time together. All of these make great gifts and from my experience end up doing better than just getting her some more jewelry.
