The holidays sneak up on us and before we know it we are wracking our brains trying to find the best Xmas gifts for women that share our lives. So what do women truly want? How can the gift this year make her eyes sparkle and a smile come to her lips?
Women seem like they would be easy since so much merchandise is directed towards them. But if you have to shop for a woman in your life you may be finding the sweaty palms and worry is already setting in. You can buy anything, but what if you want to buy something she will really love?
Best thing to do is start to pay attention now. Women know that people around them do not always know what to get them so they start laying the hints on real thick a few months before the holidays. When you are shopping together pay attention to what she looks at and especially what she points out to you. Whatever she shows you, she wants.
If you do get the opportunity to be shown the object of her desire, write it down immediately. Put it in your phone, text, or on your calendar. Do not, and I repeat, do not try to remember it and then be stuck not being able to figure out what it was she wanted and buying something she could have cared less about.
Being observant it the biggest part of gift giving for women. Because not only are you being tested to see what you give, but there is a level of seeing if you care to buy her something she really wants. The test is in the fact that she can tell if you have paid attention to her and what she tells you. Look around you at her home decor and her dress and you will see that a style is important to her. Use that information to your advantage.
The gift is the tangible item that has meaning but what you pick out says lots of unspoken things to the woman in your life. Women like to receive presents but it is in the knowledge that you know us, understand us, listen to us, and care enough to find something we really truly want that is the real gift we are looking for.
So at least for the next few weeks pay attention to the women you wish to shop for. See what colors she wears regularly. Watch what catalogs she lays down and what pages she has bent back. Listen when she says four times that she would love to see Wicked. These are the aspects that show that not only will you buy the best Xmas gifts for women but that you understand these women as well.
