Buying presents for the special woman in your life can be difficult, no matter how well you know each other; which isn’t helped by how quick Christmas suddenly comes around! For those who still haven’t done their Christmas shopping, you’d be forgiven for going into a bit of a panic. If you need some help in choosing a great present at the last minute for your girlfriend, fiancé or wife, here are some helpful ideas.
Last minute present shopping doesn’t have to mean you rush into any decisions and buy random bits and pieces to try and impress her. These ideas will still show thoughtfulness, and you can probably still get them delivered before the big day if you act now!
This may be the cheekiest idea on the list, but underwear is a great example of a luxury gift for her. Underwear is a great gift for the special girl in your life, and probably not something she would expect.
Giving underwear as a gift can be somewhat of a confidence booster to your other half; just make sure she’s not opening it in front of any family members! If you live together, it’s easy to do some sneaky detective work to find out her size and preferred style of underwear. All you need to do then is head to the shop or browse online to find the perfect pair of knickers, and even a matching bra.
Jewellery is a classic gift and something that she will cherish for years, even if you did only buy it the day before Christmas. Opt for a necklace or earrings instead of a ring or bracelet; that way you don’t need to know her size. Remember what jewellery she already wears and try to find something in a similar style.
Jewellery is a timeless Christmas gift for your girlfriend or wife. Look out for jewellery brands that offer free engraving for an extra special, last minute touch!
Vouchers are a perfect gift if you really are struggling; plus, it means she can buy whatever she likes! Choose a voucher for her favourite shop, or even a restaurant. This means you can treat her twice; once when she opens the voucher, and again when she wants to use it!
So many places do gift cards now that it means you can choose any one of the main retailers or restaurant groups to be able to treat your other half. It can also take out some of the stress of trying to find a really last minute gift.
For when you’ve run out of time to order anything online, it’s time to get creative. Get your hands on a basket or hamper of some kind, and make a list of all the things you know she loves; whether it’s chocolate, wine, fresh pasta, posh condiments or crackers and cheese. Fill the hamper with goodies from the supermarket and give it to her on Christmas Day; she’ll love the thoughtfulness behind it, even if you know it was a last minute panic.
