Gift giving is an exercise in being thoughtful and creative. For the budget of under $200 there are a variety of gift options and ideas. From relaxing spa packages to fine fragrances, there are plenty of thoughtful, fun and practical gifts for the woman in your life.
The Spa Package
To relax the woman in your life, a spa package is the ideal gift. Many spas offer packages that include a variety of services, such as massages, facials and body treatments, for a more affordable price than purchasing them a la carte. Downtown spas are trendy options, but for more bang for your buck, pick a spa outside the city or one that's off the beaten path.
Her Hobby Gift
Find out her hobby and think of a gift idea from there. If she loves to cook purchase her a new set of kitchen knives or cookware. If she loves the outdoors consider some hiking or camping gear. If she's an artist buy some high-quality art supplies. Whatever her hobby is, choosing a gift related to it is both thoughtful and practical.
The Mini Shopping Spree
Take her on a mini shopping spree. This gift will become memorable if you take her to her favorite mall and hand over $200 to buy whatever she wants. Watch the excitement on her face when she is let loose into a mall with $200 to spend, guilt-free. The mini shopping spree will also work if she's an online shopper.
Fragrance sets make gift giving fairly simple and are a favorite among women. For finer fragrances, one bottle can cost as much as $100, but sets give you more for your money. Fragrance gift sets often include some combination of perfumes in smaller sizes for variety, lotions, body washes and soaps. If you are unsure what she likes, take a look at what she already wears, ask one of her friends or family or even describe her personality and style to salespeople and they can help you find the right fit.
