What Makes a Great Birthday Gift?

There are a lot of women in your life that you will have to buy birthday gifts for, including wives, daughters, mothers, grandmothers, girlfriends, and platonic friends are just a few of the women you may celebrate through your lifetime. If you have different tastes or you’re a man that doesn’t know much about what women really want for their birthday, you may struggle to find just the right gift.

Instead of dreading an upcoming birthday, you can look forward to celebrating with your loved one with just a little planning. Keep the following four points in mind before you being shopping to ensure you get a gift she’ll love.

Consider your relationship with her – The first thing you need to think about is your relationship. If, for example, you’re purchasing for a platonic female friend, you don’t want to purchase something that would be more appropriate for a romantic relationship.

If you’re purchasing for your wife, you don’t want to buy just any old thing that doesn’t reflect her interests and personal style. You’ll want to consider your relationship before you even begin shopping to determine how much you’d like to spend and what products are most appropriate for a birthday.

Set a budget and stick with it – Nothing ruins a birthday surprise faster than knowing you’ve cleaned out your bank account. Obviously, you want to purchase a great gift, but a great gift doesn’t necessarily cost a fortune. Decide before you buy just how much you can comfortably spend. If you find the perfect gift but it’s just way out of budget, consider more affordable alternatives, or you can even pool your money with other loved ones to purchase it.

No matter what you do, you have to remember that the perfect gift isn’t defined by how much you spend on it. The thought you put into it and the sentiment behind it is much more valuable than what’s on the price tag.

Figure out what interests her the most – You want to buy something she will love, so consider everything that interests her. Does she keep up with the latest technology? Does she prefer to send her time picking out her outfits each day? Does she enjoy spending time pampering herself and looking her best with makeup and beauty products? Does she play sports, or do her eyes light up when she looks at fine jewelry counters?

Think about everything she likes, from hobbies to personal style to daily habits, and use this info to come up with a great gift idea.

Consider giving her the gift of time – If you share a close and loving relationship with the female you are shopping for, how about giving her some time spent with you enjoying the things she loves? With busy lives full of work, raising children, running errands, and doing other daily tasks, it’s sometimes too easy to put a relationship on the back burner.

If you both need some quality time together, consider spending a night out with her doing something she enjoys, like attending a concert, going to a wine tasting, watching a play, or enjoying a gourmet dinner that she doesn’t have to cook.

Types of Gifts To Consider

Jewelry – Jewelry makes a great gift for many women. You can purchase costume jewelry that adds fashionable style to an outfit if you’re on a budget, or fine jewelry to really wow her for her birthday. For moms, mother’s jewelry or a classic piece like a strand of pearls are great, while your wife may enjoy receiving an anniversary ring or a diamond necklace. If you have a platonic relationship or you’re not extremely close, stay away from purchasing fine jewelry.

Media – If she loves listening to music or watching films, you can use this information to purchase her a great gift. For the music-lover, consider purchasing ear buds, headphones, a music player, or a Bluetooth speaker. For a woman that loves movies, buy her a classic that she could watch again and again on DVD or Blu-ray. If she’s addicted to TV shows, a streaming video box is a great birthday gift.

Food and drink– If she’s a foodie, there are so many options you can consider. If she prefers to cook her own food, a nice set of cookware or kitchen tools should be considered. If she prefers having someone else cook for her, you can take her out to her favorite restaurant or give her a gift card she can use at her convenience. If she enjoys drinking a glass of fine wine, pick out her favorite bottle or purchase her new crystal wine glasses. An electric wine bottle opener is also a great and inexpensive gift idea.

Shoes and clothing – If she has a closet full of shoes and can never get enough, consider buying her a pair for her collection. Before doing so, though, make sure you know her correct size. You also want to stick with the styles that she favors. If she’s usually wearing cross trainers and flats, for example, you don’t want to buy her a pair of stilettos she will never wear. You can also consider clothing, but this may be a more difficult purchase. If you do decide to go this route, make sure you know her exact sizes, brands she prefers, as well as style and color preferences

Conclusion

Whether you’re celebrating a birthday with your mother with the rest of the family or spending an intimate evening with your wife, it’s always a great idea to come prepared with the perfect gift.

No matter who you’re shopping for, with a little bit of planning and careful consideration, you can find the most special birthday gift for any special lady in your life.
