Mates, I bet it’s the morning of December 24 that you’re reading this post, not a day earlier, am I right? Unlike women, who spend days and sometimes months pondering upon the best present for us, we, men, tend to be more… how shall I put it, more practical of a sort. So, we never do our Christmas shopping until it’s absolutely critical to do so, meaning that we go out or go online at the very very last moment. And it’s perfectly normal, no?
Now, rise and shine, gentlemen! The insistence that with ladies it’s more about the emotional attachment you invest in a gift rather than anything else is drummed into us first by our mothers, then sisters, cousins and classmates… and later on by our girlfriends and fiancé. Sometimes we learn the hard way how to make the perfect present.
In fact, as long as you observe a couple of crucial factors when choosing a Christmas present for Her, you’re safe. Details such as preferred colours, best-loved fragrance, favourite animal, symbol closest to her heart, dear places – these are the things you should watch out for. Consider these factors count when picking up a Yuletide gift for your wife, partner, sister, mum or colleague.
Because, yes, a thoughtful gift can make the difference between a great Christmas evening and awkward moments when she will have to hide her disappointment or insult. So, here’s what we can suggest to you this year:
If your ‘tender half’ likes romantic symbols reminding her of sentimental moments, she might well enjoy one of those fairy-tale gifts such as an angel, cherub, Cupid or Unicorn for that matter…
A symbol such as a polar bear with cubs or an elephant with its cub are just as touching and might help you drive home the idea of a starting a family with the lady in question.
Women love light and fire – perhaps a remnant of the past inscribed in their genes, of the time when women would look after the house alone, guard the hearth and protect the warmth of the home. For this reason and for no reason indeed, a lantern, a tea-light or candle holder, etc. are yet other fantastic ideas for ladies.
The fair sex are also responsible for the pleasant and cosy aura of a place. Our shop is brimming with suggestions in this field such as potpourri, scented candles and sticks. As scent at Christmas is a must, this present will also fill the room with beautiful fragrance.
Brighten up her Christmas with a Himalayan Egg Salt Lamp – a gorgeous present that emits negative ions and adds a sophisticated touch to a house.
Or perhaps she is mad about vintage? I won’t be surprised if she is. A vintage melting clock will be just an utter surprise for her, especially if she’s got a thing about Dali and surrealism. To be honest, this is one of our favourites from this year’s range of clocks.
Why not a wall clock with a Thai Buddha? Does she like Buddhism and Eastern culture? If so, this is a stunning choice for your lover.
Whatever you choose, don’t forget that one of the most important routes to happiness is to do what you love, and share it with the people you love. Giving gifts is not just purchasing something. In order to really make the woman you love happy, buy something you believe in and give it to her with purpose and passion. If you can do that, is doesn’t matter how much money you’ve spent on it.
