Finding the perfect gift for a single woman in your life won’t make or brake a relationship, but it will certainly let her know how well you know her. Gift giving in general acts as an indicator of sorts, so finding the perfect gift for any female in your life, regardless of relationship, is important.
Determining what a girl wants is a fairly simple process. After all, it only requires that you pay attention. Here is a gift giving guide to the best Christmas gifts for single women this year and where to find them. Each one will be appreciated by most, can be found in any price range and leaves some wiggle room for personalization.
Airline Vouchers or Airline Gift Cards
Several airlines offer the opportunity to give travel vouchers or gift cards good towards the purchase of an airline ticket to friends and family members. Everyone loves the opportunity to travel and single women, especially, could always use the gift of a plane ticket to head off somewhere new.
Southwest airlines offers the convenient gift giving option through different denomination gift cards that you can find at several popular retailers, including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens and CVS. Gift cards can also be purchased directly off the Southwest Airlines website in any amount you choose to give, so you could purchase a gift card for the entire sum of a round trip ticket (www.southwest.com).
Women love jewelry, and even if it is a gift it doesn’t always have to mean something. If you are a family member, friend, platonic male friend and thinking about giving a single woman in your life a piece of jewelry, there is plenty of casual jewelry that is fine to give for Christmas. Watches are a great example of a piece of jewelry you can give that many women will appreciate and find something to suit every style preference. Fossil has a huge variety with everything from casual to whimsical to dress watches (www.fossil.com, $95-150).
Email and blogging are more popular than ever, mainly because it is easy, quicker and available to a bigger audience. But that doesn’t mean journaling and letter writing have ceased, and a beautifully designed journal or stationary items make a great gift for women. Kate’s Paperie carries several brands of journaling and stationary gifts from brands like Kate Spade, Crane, Russel + Hazel, and Tornado. To shop the graphic journals, boxed notes, and bamboo roller ball pens visit www.katespaperie.com, $20-50.
Being able to pamper yourself a little is always a great treat, so spa gifts or gift sets are a very welcome Christmas gift. Single women enjoy Christmas gifts that they can use for or on themselves and this includes moisturizing lotions, spa gloves, manicure and pedicure sets or luxurious body butters. One of my favorite go to websites for always needed spa gifts is Bliss (www.blissworld.com) where you can pick and choose items to give or purchase already put together gift sets in every price range, $35-100.
Flowers and Floral Gifts
Every woman loves flowers, and not having to buy them for herself is always a good thing. Christmas time is a great time to give flowers and the types of floral gifts available grows. Potted bulb growing kits, simple herb growing sets, and Christmas tree shaped rosemary bushes are all great gifts for single women. Websites like 1800 Flowers have Christmas rosemary trees for under $40 (www.1800flowers.com).
