Christmas gifts for her

Christmas seems to approach quicker every year and many will be scouring the shops and online to find ‘Christmas gifts for her’.

Some of the men will leave Christmas shopping to the last minute.

It’s not usually something on their top list of priorities.

Either that or they don’t ‘see’ Christmas fast approaching like women do.

Women are definitely the more organized out of the two.

Christmas Eve will see many men dashing about the shops.

None of them really knowing what it is they are looking for.

They’re either forgotten what their partner has asked for or they’re hoping that any gift ideas will jump out at them in the store.

Everyone gathers together and the tills are heard ringing when we walk past every shop.

Big department stores are always popular at Christmas.

The place where we can park the car for the day or catch a train and have every shop we’ll ever need right in front of us.

These shops were more often than not the most expensive ones.

It was the atmosphere around that seemed to ‘blanket’ the cost of what was going to be an expensive shop.

Gift wrapping service

The queues were often extended right outside the door as people were seen queuing up for their ‘perfect’ gift.

Gift wrapping was sometimes offered, depending on the purchase and what store you were in.

This in turn, took longer to purchase items as customers are left waiting for the gift wrap service to complete.

Time seems to be something that Christmas shoppers don’t seem to have much of when it comes to shopping for gifts.

There’s a sense of urgently, especially for men, when they realize that time is running out as the special day approaches.

They daren’t return to the car without buying at least one present and getting it gift wrapped in store will save them time.

What do men buy when choosing Christmas gifts for her?

Most men will indeed ask what their partner would like as a gift as they usually have no idea what to purchase.
They don’t want to have to face the look on their partners face either when they choose a gift that doesn’t suit or fit.
Some will go for the easy and the safest option.
Completely avoid buying anything that requires an accurate size like clothing or shoes.
So what else can men purchase without failing to impress ?
Make up can be difficult unless we know exactly what to buy so some will perhaps choose the body creams/shower gels or perfume.
Scented soaps have always been popular and they will definitely get used up eventually.
There are some lovely gift sets online and in store.

Perfume is another gift that almost every woman will appreciate if they are a perfume wearer.
Many perfume stores will have a huge selection on display to view and it can be difficult to try them if the man’s partner isn’t there.
Some stores will have samples available that can be brought home but then the surprise is gone if the men have to ask which one the women prefer.
Most women will already have their own favourite fragrance sitting on their bedside cabinet or inside the wardrobe if storing the perfumes correctly.
It’s even better if the men have used their initiative and checked out what the women are currently wearing.
With the wonderful internet at our finger tips, anything can be searched online.
If a favourite fragrance is entered into the search bar, we can ask what the fragrance notes are.
