It’s always difficult for me, being a guy, to choose female birthday gifts. Whether it’s my wife, my sister, or even my 15-year old daughter, it just seems easier to ask them what they want. Yes, I know I should probably already know what they want, but I can’t seem to keep up with the trends. Even when I ask them, it seems like many times I don’t even know what they’re talking about. Shouldn’t I get points for just remembering their birthday?
So I enlisted the help of some women to come up with a great list of top gift ideas and they surprised me. I was expecting a lot of jewelry and perfume, but I got romance, fun, and practicality.
Whether you’re looking for birthday ideas, birthday gift ideas for her, best gifts for women, gifts for girls, gifts for her, birthday gifts for her, birthday gifts for women, gifts for teens, birthday gifts for Mom, gifts for family, gifts for coworkers, birthday gifts for her, or gifts for friends, we’re sure you will find something they’ll love on our list.
Female Birthday Gifts: Bluetooth Portable Speaker
One of the hottest gifts this year are Bluetooth portable speakers. They come in handy in so many situations, provide rich sound, and are fun to use. Your lady will love sharing her music with friends and family from her Bluetooth-enabled portable smartphone, tablet, or MP3 player.
Compact Portable Charger
How many times has she complained that her smartphone is dying or dead. While it’s true that most portable electronic devices have painfully short battery lives, there are new compact portable chargers capable of charging multiple devices several times before needing to be recharged themselves. She can carry one in her purse or pocket and never run out of talking or texting power.
Streaming Media Player
The most popular HDTV-related devices are streaming media players. A streaming media player will allow her to stream TV shows and movies to her TV in Full HD 1080p quality mostly for FREE. If she doesn’t already have one, she will be glad you got one for her.
Now she can find out exactly what the temperature is outside and even the forecast for her exact location so she can know what to wear to work or play without waiting for weather on the local news. A handy weather station will tell her the exact temperature at the moment she needs to know it both outside and inside her house. Many also will forecast the weather for her based on historical trends in her location.
Silicone Baking Sheets
If she likes to bake, one of the best baking tools is the non-stick silicone baking mat. She can put one of these in the bottom of any backing pan and say goodbye to burnt cookies or food sticking to the pan. They’re easy to use, easy to clean, and will help her bake like the experts on Top Chef.
Portable Garment Steamer
When I was 100% travel for my work, one of the things I dreaded most was getting to the hotel room only to find that there was no iron, the iron didn’t work, or the iron was covered with some black goo rendering it unusable. I finally solved that problem by buying a travel garment steamer. Not just for travel, she will use it for touch-ups around the house instead of her iron.
Picnics in the park are romantic and fun, but assembling everything for the picnic and transporting it to the park…not so much. Make it easy for her to have a picnic with you more often with a picnic backpack that includes everything for a picnic and transporting it to the park can be a pain (labor of love) though. A picnic backpack includes everything you need to have a great picnic. All you have to provide is the food. Now you can give your friends or family all the romance of a picnic for two with none of the pain.
Personal Home Spa Treatment
Who doesn’t like a personal spa trip? My wife goes occasionally and I can tell you that it’s not cheap. Of course, she’s worth it, but as a gift, it can be pricey. She will appreciate getting all the components of an expensive spa all in one beautiful gift basket she can use right in her own home. So why not give your friends or family their own personal home spa trip.
Yoga Starter Kit
Yoga is very popular these days as people try to find ways to be healthier and reduce stress. The question is how do you get started? Should you go to an expensive trainer? If she’s just getting started, one of the best ways is with a Yoga starter kit. It includes instructions and everything she needs to find out if she is a Yoga person. Give your friends or family relief from the stress of the busy lives and some great exercise as well.
Cosmetic Makeup Kit
Makeup is a girl’s best friend. To say it another way, women can never have enough makeup. Applying makeup is an art that requires an artist’s tools and materials. Why not get your favorite friend or relative their very own cosmetic makeup kit complete with everything they’ll need to make themselves and their friends beautiful?
Personal Protection Stun Gun
I’m sure you’ve all heard of pepper spray, but did you know there are personal stun guns capable of bringing down large attackers with nearly a million volts of electricity? The amazing part is that they’re about the same size as a small flashlight, so your friends or family can carry it with them wherever they go. I’m an upbeat, optimistic person, but I have to admit, I’ve never been in the shoes of a woman walking out to her car, in a poorly lit parking lot or garage after work and worry about her personal safety. I can definitely see the usefulness of a self-defense weapon that won’t really harm the attacker, but will render them helpless long enough for a quick escape. This may be the perfect gift for someone you know.
Women love chocolate. Whenever I want to give a gift to a woman that I know she will love, chocolate always seems to be the answer. I’m not talking about just any chocolate. I’m talking about GODIVA. Nothing says high-end gift like a box of GODIVA chocolates. I’ve been to a GODIVA store and it’s pure decadence. The flavor of GODIVA chocolate is like none other. Get her some candy like chocolate and watch her eyes light up.
Romantic Gift Basket
I’m not a huge fan of gift baskets because they’re not very personal and they don’t take much thought usually. I had to make an exception in this case. This basket appeals to the romantic side of your wife or special friend. She will love getting something from you that says you’re thinking about her and your relationships. To top it off this gift basket is beautiful and will make a great impression.
Gardener’s Kneeling Bench
Many people love gardening. It’s relaxing, reduces stress, and the results can be beautiful and bountiful. The most common complaint about gardening is the effect on knees and on the back. If you kneel on the ground, it hurts and after awhile it takes its toll. Getting up and down a lot puts a lot of stress on your back and even if it doesn’t actually damage your back, it is certainly painful and can make you stiff for days after. There is a nice solution that is a great value and your female gardener will love you for it. It’s a kneeler bench and it serves two purposes in one. It has upright handles to help you when getting up or kneeling down and it is padded to reduce knee pain. Take care of your gardener and get them a kneeling bench for their birthday.
Compact Battery Jump Starter
Another gift you may not even know about and you’re probably not thinking about is a compact portable jump starter and power station. That’s a mouthful, but it simply means a device that can jump start her car all by herself without needing jumper cables or another vehicle. This is a great emergency tool that is so compact it can fit nearly anywhere in the car, even the glove box, but will be ready at a moment’s notice to save them the first time her car won’t start due to a dead battery. They also happen to come with a built-in emergency flashlight with SOS and have the capability to charge all her portable devices when traveling. Everyone should have one in their car.
Kindle Paperwhite E-reader
One gift showed up on everyone’s list and it has to do with the popularity of reading. It’s a relaxing pastime that can be made even easier and more enjoyable with an e-reader. The new Kindle Paperwhites are the most popular and so you can’t go wrong with that for that reader in your life. They provide a very nice reading experience without glare even in daylight and they are very light so you can read with one hand, unlike some tablets which are too heavy to do that.
There you have it, 15 gifts women love and would love to get for their birthday.
