It can be hard buying a gift for someone. It can be especially hard if that someone is your girlfriend. One wrong move and your relationship could be over before it even starts! I kid of course, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need to be careful when buying her gifts. Here 12 Basic Girlfriend Gifts.
1. Mini Perfume
Perfumes are a girlfriend gift that you can get for almost any occasion. While there are different brands and scents to consider, getting your girlfriend a cute mini-bottle will often be the right choice. Being able to be carried around in a purse or handbag all day will really come through for your girlfriend.
Relax, I don’t mean you should get your girlfriend actual diamonds. But jewelry is a good girlfriend gift to consider. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets, they all fall under this category. They don’t have to be super expensive,or elaborate. They just have to be able to convey the feelings you want to convey.
3. A Scented Candle
A girlfriend gift for the home. A scented candle may be more practical than some of the other items on this list, but it’s still viable. The best thing about it is that you can choose what scent to get for her. Seasonal, sweets, nature; whatever you get can be a message in and of itself. Every time she lights it, she’ll think of you.
Some girlfriends love to treat themselves to a good soak. Getting them the right bath products, which come in convenient gift baskets, will make certain nights for your girlfriend feel like she’s gone to the spa, which actually relates to another item on this list. Bath salts, lotions, scrubs, bubble baths are all things that are included in some of these gift packages. You might think you’re spoiling your girlfriend, but trust me, it’s worth it.
A personal gift, like jewelry, is a makeup bag with your girlfriend’s name for her to see on the side. It might not be much, but it’s still a sweet gesture. This personalized makeup bag is one of the best girlfriend gifts!
6. A Tote To Carry With Her
There’s a lot to say about a woman by the kind of handbag she’s using. That’s why she has more than one. And seeing as she uses it to carry around all of her things, I’m sure she’d love it if you got a new one for her. Like many of the other gifts on this list, be sure to find out what kind she likes or needs.
7. A Relaxing Spa Gift Card
A trip to the spa is one of the best girlfriend gifts out there. While you don’t have to go the whole nine yards, getting her a free massage or pedicure would be a nice thing to do. But if you want to go the extra mile, you could offer to go together for the couple massage. That’ll be a memory she’ll treasure.
A great gift for the girlfriends that take their makeup seriously, a set of makeup brushes will be a big help, especially if her old brushes are starting to wear down.
9. Get The Sun Out Of Her Eyes With These Sunglasses
Sunglasses are another basic girlfriend gift. Not only do they block out the soon, but they can also be used a stylish accessory to compliment a wide range of outfits. When buying one though, be sure to know what kind of brands and styles your girlfriend likes.
10. A Gift Certificate To A Store She Loves
Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, even McDonald’s. A gift certificate or gift card is probably the most basic girlfriend gift ever. Yes, some would say that you’re basically handing money to your girlfriend and telling her to go nuts, but hey, some girlfriends are okay with that. Just make sure it’s a gift card you know she’ll be happy to have.
11. A Travel Mug To Take On The Road
Some girlfriends cannot function without a cup of coffee or tea at the start of their day. If they need it on the go, a travel mug would be very handy to have. You could even customize the design on the mugs, as some allow you to place messages or pictures. When she’s away, she’ll always have a lovely memento reminding her of you.
12. A Home Cooked Meal
This might not seem basic, but hear me out! If you go out of your way to cook one of your girlfriend’s favorite meals, she’ll know that not only do you know what her favorite meal is but that you actually spent the time and effort to make it. This will mean a lot to her and is definitely one of the best girlfriend gifts to get!
