Creative Gift Ideas Women Love

If you're anything like I am, you try your best to select the "perfect" present for each of the women on your gift giving list. Are you stuck for gift ideas for Mother's Day, Birthdays, Graduations, and Thinking of You Gifts? No need to fret. I'll provide several ideas to help you whiz through the shopping process. Put some thought into it, and the recipient of your gift will be delighted and so will you.

1.Consider the preferences of the person you are shopping for. Think of the colors she wears and the color scheme and style of furniture in her home. Is it modern (sleek and unadorned), traditional (classic and solid), or Mediterranean (scrolls and flourishes)? Does she like new ideas and up to the minute fashion? Perhaps she wears classic styles and color-coordinates all her outfits. Choose your gift according.

2.What are her hobbies and interests? Is she the outdoors type (sports or gardening items), stay at home home-schooling mom (on-line magazine or newspaper subscription), career woman ( streamlined pocketbook or case for a laptop or tablet), or the woman who wears many hats? Is she a woman who works out at the gym or a health club, while on her lunch break? Perhaps a thermos, gym bag, or gym attire would fit the bill. Does she stop at the market on the way from her kids' soccer practice? She may appreciate an insulated shopping bag or appointment book. 

Her lifestyle is a good clue to her taste. Accessories like a beautiful scarf, sunhat (UV protection), cross the body pocketbook, wallet, yoga mat (recycled material of course) are items that don't require you to know her size.

3. Give a customized gift, if you can. You don't have to break the bank to do that. Make her a bead jewelry necklace in her favorite colors, frame a picture of the two of you, or make a scrapbook keepsake of a favorite time you two spent together. If you don't have enough pictures of that time, cut out ones from magazines to illustrate joy, fun, dancing, music, bike riding, or other activities you enjoy doing together. Another idea that is personalized is to make a donation in her name. You'll be able to work within your budget, and help spread the holiday spirit in a very generous way.

4. A wonderful idea that I've saved for last is affordable, provides hours of entertainment and discovery, and makes an eye-catching gift. 

Colors of Joy: A Woman's Guide for Self Discovery, Balance, and Bliss is an interactive journal that's heartwarming and attractive. In fact, you don't have to wait for special occasions. Surprise that special someone by ordering it and gifting it right now.

Purchase an autographed copy from my Website by clicking right here, pick up a copy of Colors of Joy at a fine Book Store or Shop Where it is Sold, or order it at Amazon Books.
