Most of us who don’t shop for Christmas gifts in July are amazed that it is already time to choose presents for the people we love and care about. Throughout the year we give gifts for other occasions – Valentine’s Day, birthdays and sometimes even Easter and Halloween – and there are tried and true gift choices for women that are perfect for any occasion.
What are those choices? First start with a gift that means something to the recipient or something that represents the relationship the two of you have. For instance, a book of poetry signed by the author, a framed photo of a memorable occasion, an item you overheard her talking about or her favorite candy, drink, cake, delicacy that is hard to come by. Add to that a scented candle, piece of jewelry, perfume, luxurious body cream or a practical accessory, and you have a winner of a gift.
As far as accessories there are a lot of choices: a colorful scarf or belt, new sneakers and matching socks, hair bows, hair bands, flowers, head wraps, silver bangles, knuckle and stackable rings, leather wallets, makeup bags, compact mirrors, mini makeup brushes… get the idea?
Take those classic items and look out for the blinged out versions. Don’t forget, girls like their sparkle. A good place to start is with compact mirrors especially the ones we’ve learned about that are decorated in Europe where they are covered in the crystals Swarovski® Elements. All of that is done by Mont Bleu where the mirrors are decorated by hand.
A lot of women still carry compact mirrors in their purse, but the advent of all things technological has caused some to sway from things. For instance, there are Android mirror apps. There are ladies everywhere who regret replacing their compact mirror, older women whose handy mirrors have been lost or broken and young girls who realize how having a compact mirror makes them feel very ladylike.
