We all know someone – a friend, sister, partner, mum, colleague – who is seemingly impossible to buy for.

Now staff at WhenWorkWorks have compiled a list of the gifts women actually want – as well as some of the best tips for choosing the perfect gift.

These hints are a good starting point…

  • Consider their interests: Find a gift that aligns with what they love.
  • Personalise it: Make your gift extra special by adding a personal touch.
  • Plan an experience: Consider planning a special experience for the two of you instead of buying a material gift.
  • Pay attention to their hints: Be attentive and try to remember the things they’ve mentioned in the past.
  • Think creatively: DIY gifts, or something quirky and unexpected, show you care.

Quality Time

Quality time is all about spending focused, uninterrupted time with your loved one. It’s not about the amount of time you spend, but the way you spend it. So, make the most of your special occasion and provide your loved one with quality time that they will always cherish.

 Whether it’s a gourmet dinner, a weekend getaway, or a special activity, spending quality time together is a gift that will be treasured for years to come.

Unique Experiences

Adventure-seekers and women who enjoy trying new things will appreciate a unique experience. Gifting her with tickets to a concert, a hot air balloon ride, or a cooking class is a great way to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Personalised Jewellery

Customised and sentimental jewellery is an excellent way to express your love and affection. Opt for a personalised necklace, bracelet, or pair of earrings that feature her initials, her birthstone, or a special date that holds meaning for both of you.

A Luxury Getaway

A surprise weekend getaway or a romantic night at a bed and breakfast can be a memorable and exciting way to spend a special occasion. Choose a location that appeals to her interests, whether it’s a city with a vibrant cultural scene or a quiet and secluded beach.

A Subscription Box

Subscription boxes are a fun and easy way to treat someone to new and exciting experiences every month. Consider a box that caters to her hobbies and interests, such as a book club, a beauty box, or a wellness and self-care box.

Gourmet Treats and Foodie Delights

Treats and unique foods are a true indulgence, and gourmet treats and foodie delights are an excellent way to show your love and appreciation. Consider gifting her with artisan chocolates, gourmet cheeses, or a wine and cheese basket to satisfy her sweet tooth or love of good food.

Of course if she has dietary requirements, finding something she can both eat and enjoy will be a true labour of love!

Women who love a good thrill will appreciate a surprising adventure. Consider taking her on a scenic helicopter tour, a hot air balloon ride, or a bungee jumping experience to get her heart racing and her adrenaline pumping.

A Photo Album or Scrapbook

If you’ve known each other for a while, consider putting together a photo album or scrapbook of your memories together. This is a sentimental and beautiful gift that she will cherish for years to come.

Home Decor and Plants

A cosy and comfortable home is important to many women, and thoughtful home decor and plants can help make it a place she loves. Gifting her with a beautiful vase, a collection of succulents, or a throw pillow in a bold and playful pattern is a great way to show her that you appreciate her taste and style.
