When it comes to choosing the perfect Christmas or birthday gift for the woman in your life, think about her interests and pay attention to the hints that she will surely drop along the way in November and December for Christmas (and you'll get extra brownie points if you can remember something she mentioned last spring).
In this article, I've included unique holiday and birthday gifts for a wide array of women including ideas for health and exercise enthusiasts, fashionistas, Moms that deserve a little pampering, and of course, the woman that loves a little bling.
#1) Great Perfume
These fragrances are both wonderful! Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker has a light fresh scent that won't overpower the room. I love it and I know that your wife, girlfriend, mother, or other woman in your life will too!
#2) Spa or Aromatherapy Basket
What woman wouldn't love a little pampering? Honestly I would be thrilled to receive aspa gift basket for Christmas. In fact, we bought all the women that work for my husband's company spa gift baskets the last couple years. We also threw in a gift card for a massage at a local spa... they were thrilled!
Choose a scent for the bath and body products in the basket that the woman in your life will enjoy. Some popular choices are lavender, vanilla, or jasmine.
#3) Pair of Earrings
#4) Fresh Floral Bouquet
When you live in Minnesota, you start dreaming about the scent and beauty of fresh flowers around November 1st when the first snowfall usually occurs. As I look out the window today at a snow-covered backyard, I envision my beautiful perennial garden that once filled the space last summer. Gardeners such as me would be thrilled to receive a big bouquet of fresh flowers for the holidays. Amaryllis, paper-whites, and bouquets featuring a red, white, and green color scheme areunique Christmas giftoptions.
#5) Pendant or Necklace

And don't forget the bling for the women who love to sparkle and shine! Here are some great options for bracelets:

#7) Godiva Chocolates
So my mouth is watering just reading what is included in a typical chocolate gift basket. Give the women in your life a little chocolate bliss... many gift baskets includes milk chocolate, dark chocolate, chocolate filled caramel bars, chocolate covered cashews, strawberries, and a whole lot more.
#8) Purse or Tote Bag
These wet-dry totes are super popular this year!
#9) Gifts For The Garden Lover
If the woman on your gift loves to get her hands dirty and has a green thumb, then you can't go wrong with agardening gift basketthat is full of tools that she can use in her garden and goodies that she can enjoy while she is kicking back looking at her handy work. Whether she grows perennials, annuals, or vegetables, she'll love that you know her oh so well and bought a gift right up her alley!
#10) Pashmina Scarf

#11) Basket or Box of Organic Fruit
Healthy living means eating healthy too! More and more people are going organic... especially when it comes to produce. If the woman on your gift list is a health enthusiast, then one of the best gift options is afruit basket overflowing with organically grown fresh apples, pears, oranges, etc.
It also makes a great gift for an office or family depending on the size of the basket you choose.
#12) Gourmet Cookie Flowers
A great alternative to a traditional flower bouquet that lasts only several days,cookie bouquetscome in all shapes and sizes so you can tailor the gift to what she likes. Choose from red roses, birthday presents, snowman shaped cookies and more. The arrangements like the one shown in the photo are normally available with 5 to 12 cookies.
Another option is to buy gourmet cookies in a gift box where you can get cut-out cookies along with a traditional cookie assortment such as chocolate chip, peanut butter, and oatmeal raisin. If she has a sweet tooth like me, she'll enjoy this gift!
