Whether it's your sister, mother, niece or daughter, women are the hardest to shop for, according to a majority of their male companions. If you've ever found yourself lost in a department store, searching for that perfect gift, you know how difficult birthday shopping for a girl can be. Here are some ideas that will help you avoid the struggle on your next shopping trip.
Interests & Hobbies
If you're really at a loss when it comes to shopping for the girl or woman in your life, step back and take a look at the big picture. Often, the answer is right in front of you. Think about what the she likes to do. Cook? Read? Exercise? These are all great clues as to what you could buy. Think of the practicality behind potential gifts if you get stuck in between ideas. What would she get the most use out of? What would she get more enjoyment from?
She's Got the Look
If you're shopping for a girl who just seems to like everything, shopping according to her hobbies may not be the answer. Instead, try picturing her. What kind of earrings is she wearing? What type of shoes does she have on? These are often the simplest, easiest clues that will lead you to the perfect gift. Instead of guessing what she might like, try picking out a gift according to her style.
If All Else Fails...
One gift that fits anyone perfectly is a gift card. It may seem like an easy way out, so try to personalize it. Get her a gift card to one of her favorite stores, or to a place she visits often, such as coffee shop or a book store. Add a thoughtfully chosen birthday card, and you've got an ideal gift for just about anyone.
