Dear Dish-It: What Gift Should I Buy For My Girlfriend?

Dec 20, 2012

Dear Dish-it,

My girlfriend won’t tell me what she wants for Christmas. She says she likes to be surprised, but I’m horrible at coming up with gift ideas for girls. I can only spend about $50, so what should I get for her?

Time Crunched

Dear Time Crunched,

It’s nice when girls tell you what they want for Christmas, but sometimes it’s even better when you get free reign to buy whatever you want. The shopping malls are your oyster, my friend!

Did She Drop Hints?

First, start by thinking back in case she’s dropped hints. Have you guys ever been in a store or looking online when she’s pointed something out to you and said “I love that!” This would be the perfect scenario, allowing you to give her something you know she’ll love!

Does She Have An Obssession?

If she’s never dropped hints, think about the things she likes. What music does she listen to? What colors does she wear? Does she have any hobbies? Where does she like to hangout? Does she like jewelry? Chocolates? Specific celebrities? Better yet, does she have a “thing”? For example, she may be obsessed with a certain makeup brand, movie or book franchaise, sport, you name it! You can always get her some paraphernalia related to her obsession!

Make a Memory

You could also give her the gift of a memory. Instead of buying something you'll half to wrap, why not take her someplace nice, like a swanky restaurant, or someplace fun like a local theme park or concert. Groupon and similar sites offer tons of ideas at affordable prices. Better yet, you could prepare a romantic dinner for her. There’s nothing more special than making a gift from the heart.

Stocking

Another fun idea is to make her a stocking filled with tons of little gifts. You could add things like $5.00 gift cards, magazines, hair accessories, lipgloss, sweets, stuffed animals, a keychain, fun socks, a CD, a Scrabble tile necklace, a book, lotion, temporary tattoos, or a DVD. With so many little things, you can't go wrong!

Pamper Her

When all else fails, go for the Spa treatment. After all, every girl loves to be pampered. Get her a manicure, pedicure or half-hour massage. All of this is in keeping with your $50 budget. You might even be able to find a full hour massage at that price on Groupon.
