Every woman enjoys being pampered but often falls into the busyness of life. We forget that taking care of ourselves is just as important as taking care of others. Therefore, offer her a day at the spa. Not sure where to find the best spa to treat a specific treatment, try spafinder.com.
As a man, I’m sure you’re aware of how much sexier a woman is when she smells good. Why not offer her one of your favorite scents? (remember to keep the receipt, just incase she doesn’t enjoy the particular fragrance)
Here are a few scents that are popular among women and will cost you under $70:
Yes, women love to look sexy for their man. We don’t mind when our men buy us lingerie and in our minds the more risqué the better. We love the idea of our man, swallowing his pride to venture into a lingerie store to find something he would like his woman to wear for him. We strongly suggest any piece from Agent Provocateur, classy with a hint of naughty. Check out some of their Winter 2012 collection to get some ideas.
It’s no surprise that the way to a woman’s heart is with jewelry. Everything is made right when you hand a woman a tiny box. Her heart melts at just the sight of it. Here are a few ideas that will make you into an amazing man, which she can later use when bragging to her friends about you.

DRESS IT UP
Something you’ll always hear a woman say is “I have nothing to wear”. Although shopping for a woman can prove to be a difficult task, if you know your woman well enough, you’ll have no problem picking out a dress to fit her style. Make sure you know her favorite colors or what fits her form the best. Sticking to a little black dress can also make it a safer bet. Take a look at these ideas below, which can all be picked up from nordstrom.com.
For the fashionista in your life, you will never go wrong when buying her some stylish winter boots. The styles that women are making popular this season are Booties, which is a style easy to match with any outfit. These booties stop at the ankles making it easy to pair with anything from dresses to skinny jeans. Hear are some of our favorites we are sure she will like too.
No man has ever been told that a designer handbag was the worst gift they’d given, so why not try your luck in this department. Remember that women use purses for many occasions. Try a clutch, which is helpful during a night out on the town and probably the safest bet.
Yes this section did not require any fancy headline. Women are expected to do it all and most of the time we do. Why not give your woman a day off and allow someone else to do the dirty work. You can offer up a one-time major housecleaning or an ongoing gift of a cleaning service once a week. Try the site merrymaids.com and get her all cleaned up.
ROOM FOR TWO
Lastly we leave you with a romantic getaway gift idea. Most couples just want an escape from the world, where they can focus on each other. It’s not necessary to have to travel to an exotic location to find this. Why not offer a weekend bed and breakfast escape. BedandBreakfast.com offers gift cards to over 11,000 B&Bs. They never expire and don’t have any blackout dates.
Only a few more days left to shop for the holidays. Merry shopping fellas. The fun is now in your hands.
