If your wife or girlfriend is celebrating her birthday, or if you simply want to show off your chivalrous nature with an unexpected gift that shows your love and appreciation for the amazing woman in your life, you need to think beyond the cliché bouquet of roses or the “I Love You” teddy bear that most likely gets donated to Goodwill a few weeks after you purchase it.
The giving of gifts has been a part of courting, wooing, and showing love and respect for women for hundreds of years. Unfortunately, our generic consumer culture has taken much of the spice out of the “art” of gift giving. If you are not a proficient poet who can write a sonnet or a musician who can compose his own songs for the special woman in his life, a unique, unexpected, and matchless gift is also a great way to let your heart speak what words cannot convey.
Here are seven hot gift ideas for a woman who occupies a special place in your life.
1. Candles for every occasion
Candles are a favorite of women for a number of reasons. When infused with essential oils that can be calming after a long day of work. They are also a great addition to any romantic dinner. There are also unique candles available like the ones that bring the smell of the sea into your home, perhaps reminding your loved one of a recent vacation to the beach. A mixture of coconut, tropical fruit, tuberose, salt, and white musk essences will keep your gal in a great mood.
2. Chocolates: A tradition that never grows old
A box of chocolates might seem like a pretty traditional gift for women. However, tradition isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and if you go beyond Hershey Kisses and other “over-the-counter” chocolates you pick up while waiting at the checkout line at the supermarket, chances are that chocolates can make quite an impression. Chocolates are loved by all and gifting chocolates is in itself a sign of love and affection towards your partner.
These days, many unique chocolate manufacturers allow you to personalize your gift with special messages imprinted on each piece of chocolate in the box. Here is a useful tip that you should certainly keep in mind: the darker the chocolate, the more aphrodisiac properties it is said to have. A little hidden intention behind gifting of a chocolate box might go a long way.
3. A home spa experience
If you cannot afford to take your girl to the local spa (which can easily cost you hundreds of dollars), the next best thing is to purchase a home spa kit that will help any woman to relax and unwind after a week of stressful work. There are many brands that offer home spa kits contains body scrubs, lotions, bubble bath, shower gel, massage soap, bath salts, and much more.
If you feel the need to surprise that special someone in your life with a unique and exceptional gift that goes above and beyond the wilted roses on sale at the supermarket, any one of these seven unique gift ideas for a woman will certainly do the trick.
4. Corsets: A gift for both of you
While chocolates might have a hidden agenda, our next gift idea certainly doesn’t conceal its intention. Giving a corset as a gift to the special woman in your life is as much a gift for you, as it is for her. A waist-training corset can help you woman get her hourglass shape while allowing you to maintain a sense of sensuality and eroticism in the relationship and is a great way to celebrate a special moment in your relationship (think anniversaries).
5. A bubble bath
Bubble baths aren’t just for kids anymore as several companies have begun to manufacture bubble bath products that will help adults relax and rejuvenate after a long day of work. A lot of products come infused with herbs like Valerian and Hops that can help your girl get a relaxing night of sleep. Bubble baths can also be a part of a romantic night at home, and many companies offer a wide range of erotic bubble bath treasures.
6. A romantic night with a bottle of wine
Some of the best gifts you can offer to a woman are experience based, instead of simply being consumer items that you purchase. Consider inviting that special someone to an outdoor concert that she had been wanting to go to or simply make an effort to get off of work early and prepare a romantic dinner that she had not been expecting. Whatever romantic experience you settle on, bringing home a bottle (or two) of wine is a great way to increase the romantic ambiance.
7. Creams, facemasks and other beauty delights
Never try to buy makeup for your wife or girlfriend. You will almost certainly choose the wrong color lip gloss or pick the eyeshadow hue that she most despises. Rather, purchasing a high quality skin cream or facemask is a great way to pamper your woman and to help her take care of herself. Skincare brands offer a wide range of rejuvenating products like face masks, sheet masks and clay masks that works to hydrate and rejuvenate her skin while she sleeps.
