Amp Up the Holiday Lovin’ with These 11 Romantic Gifts for Her
Women know that great things come in small packages, so you can’t go wrong with jewelry. When you gift your girl with bling, you’re telling her that she’s worth this luxurious treat.
On top of that, jewelry often symbolizes commitment and great affection—it’s not something you give to just anyone. Here are a few pieces you can consider:
- Charms for a charm bracelet
- Classic diamond studs
- Personalized necklaces (with meaningful initials or dates)
- Stackable bands
- A necklace with a heart pendant
If your lady isn’t hot on bling, maybe she’ll appreciate a nice watch. You can also consider matching jewelry for couples, like customized cuffs.
Spa Gift Set
If the holidays have been extra stressful for your girl, spoil her with a spa gift set. Women are more likely to get in the mood for love when they’re relaxed and in a good mood.
Here are a few items you can add to your spa gift set:
- Luxurious robes
- Champagne and flutes
- Candles or diffusers
- Massage gift certificate
- Massage oil
- Moisturizer or body lotion
You can customize your spa gift set to make it a couple’s activity. If things go really well, you may end up de-stressing in the bedroom, too.
3. Music Art
This is the perfect holiday gift for music-loving women. To begin, you need to think of the perfect song.
It can be your girl’s favorite tune or a song that’s special for the both of you. Once you have your song, you have a few options on what to do next, such as:
- Send the song to an artist and have them create art inspired by the song. You can ask them to highlight specific lyrics.
- DIY your own music art by playing with different fonts on your computer.
- Order sound wave art. All songs have soundwaves, and there are online stores that capture this and turns them into wall art.
This may be an unconventional gift, but think of it as a mixed tape on steroids!
4. Cashmere Sweater
If you’re going to get your girl new threads for the holidays, make it extra special by gifting her with a cashmere sweater. Cashmere is the perfect combination of comfort and style—that’s why it can be pricey.
She’ll definitely feel extra fancy (and loved) with a luxurious cashmere sweater. While you’re at it, you may want to throw in a pair of cashmere gloves, too!
5. Instant Digital Camera
If your girl loves new tech, instant digital cameras are all the rage these days. It may not seem romantic at first, but adding a thoughtful holiday card can go a long way.
In your card, you can let her know how excited you are to make new memories this coming new year. You can even fill the camera with photos of places you want to visit with her—how romantic is that?
6. Subscription Box
One of the best romantic holiday gifts for her is a gift that literally keeps on giving—a subscription box! Why spoil your girl once a year when you can make her feel special all year round?
Here are a few subscription boxes she might enjoy:
- Succulents or flowers
- Skincare or make-up products
- Specialty foods (ex: cheese, hot sauce, chocolates, etc.)
- Games or puzzles
Think of something she enjoys receiving and match it with one of the many subscription boxes available out there.
7. Meaningful Framed Photos
In this fast-paced world, there’s something undeniably romantic about an old school printed photo in a beautiful frame. Go through your photo library and find a photo you think your girl would love to see every day.
It can be a photo of a significant relationship milestone or a snapshot from a memorable trip you took. You don’t have to limit yourself to couple photos either.
If you do a little snooping, childhood photos are also great for nostalgia. Remember, gifts don’t need to be extravagant to be romantic.
8. Couple’s Getaway
If you are feeling extra extravagant, that can be incredibly romantic too! These days, there’s an emphasis on investing in experiences rather than things.
Your millennial lady love will totally appreciate receiving a romantic getaway as a holiday present. You may even get some romance in advance for this generous gift so make sure you’re ready to keep up with her.
Tip: If you’re giving your girl a couple’s getaway, try to be creative with the packaging. You can give her travel-related items like a passport holder or a toiletry kit with the big reveal tucked inside.
9. Customized Map of the Stars
If you’re looking for a more unique romantic holiday present, you can get your girl a customized star map.
What is a star map? A star map shows the alignment of the stars against the night sky at a particular time, place, and date
Choose a date that’s meaningful for both of you. It can be the date of your first meeting, the day you proposed, or your wedding anniversary.
Once you get your star map, you can even have it framed so that it’s easy to display. What could be more romantic than immortalizing the exact moment that the stars aligned for you and your girl?
10. Keepsake Jar
If you’re in the mood to get crafty, a keepsake jar is an easy DIY romantic gift. There’s a lot of room for creativity here, but a keepsake jar is a jar full of notes for your wife or girlfriend.
Here are some common keepsake jar themes you can play around with:
- My favorite things about you – On a small piece of paper, write one thing you love about your girl. Keep going until your jar is full.
- Why I’m grateful for you – Think of all the different ways your girl makes your life better and list them down on small pieces of paper.
- Motivational quotes – Fill the jar with some of her favorite quotes. She can pick one out on days where she needs an extra push.
- Jokes – List down some things you know she’ll find funny. She can pick one out every time she feels down.
Ready-made keepsake jars are available online, but it’s always more romantic when your man goes the extra mile to give your gift a personal touch.
11. A New Mattress
When you’re thinking of romantic gifts, it’s probably a good idea to stay away from most household items like cleaning equipment or cooking tools. These gifts may make her happy, but it doesn’t normally elicit a romantic response.
That doesn’t mean though that a practical gift can’t also be romantic at the same time. A great gift that marries both romance and practicality is a new mattress.
Who wouldn’t want to ring in the new year with the promise of better sleep? And maybe your girl will even let you help her break the new mattress in.
Tip: If you want her to help you choose a mattress, you don’t have to give up the surprise factor. You can wrap up some new bedsheets, put it under the tree, and add a card explaining that she can use them for her new bed.
Don’t let holiday shopping stress you out! Hopefully, these holiday gift ideas help point you in the right direction.
