Finding an unusual gift for a woman can be difficult, especially when running around the high street on a last-minute Christmas shopping trip. Thankfully, the internet has taken the stress out of gift buying and has some great original gifts to offer women of all ages.
Must-Have Gifts for Women
These gift suggestions are practical and sure to please:
- Custom Enamel Pins: If really want to think out of the box then go for personalized turkey enamel pins for him. This will be a completely personalized gift. Simple but elegant.
- Bag hangers. Most women own at least one handbag and many buy a new one every year not just for the latest fashion, but because their old handbag is tired and dirty. So what better practical gift than a neat little bag hanger, which holds any size of handbag safely under a table or on a chair. Prices start from under $10 for a simple bag hanger with a symbol like a black cat; women who prefer a little more bling might prefer a diamante martini glass (see the picture below) to identify their personal handbag hanger. Some online stores even offer personalized hangers which make a truly unique gift for a woman.
- Wine charms. Every woman who likes to cook dinner for friends and family will appreciate a set of original wine charms; simply place the charms, consisting of a circular wire with various different charms or colored beads, around the base of a glass to remind guests which glass they are drinking from. Wine charms are available with various designs starting from around $12 for a set of six and can also be bought as an economical craft kit allowing both extra personalization and more charms for the money.
- Glass tags. Even more practical than wine charms, an alternative gift for a keen hostess is a set of reusable wine glass stickers from a company like SplashTags. Identify each glass at a party with a cool tactile sticker that won’t come off in the dishwasher and that can be used on a variety of different shapes of glass and also plates and dishes.
Christmas Gifts for Women
For innovative gift ideas consider the following:
- Hot boots – slippers or boots that can be put in the microwave for toasty warm feet in a few seconds.
- A light pod – perfect for long dark winter days when seasonal affected disorder can set in; simply sit in front of a light pod for a few minutes to bring back a smile.
- A crystal photo – a picture frame with a difference; just send a good quality photograph to a relevant online store and get it embedded into a crystal frame, available in a variety of different shapes. The crystal will enhance the image and make the photo a real talking point, wherever it is displayed.
For other cool Christmas gifts, consider a personalized portrait or even a funny caricature. Both can be produced from a photograph sent by e-mail and either enlarged to a suitable size then framed, or sent as a digital image, which can be used multiple times; for example as a tee shirt print or as a full-scale picture to hang above a fireplace.
