When you need birthday gift ideas for women, I have a few rules for you to keep in mind.
If you're a male and purchasing for a platonic friend or office pal, it's better not to give her jewelry, perfume, or an engraved gift.
That being said, here are some ideas for women and what type of gifts would be appropriate.
If she's someone you work with - choose anything for her desk or office.
She might like a
special name plate, pen, iPhone cover, or personalized cup.
If you know she has a particular hobby, that would be a good area to shop in. Is she a gardener? Then anything regarding gardening would be perfect.
Does she love to golf? Whereas you may not get her golf gear - she would still appreciate a golf shirt or personalized golf picture.
Does she love to cook? Then she'd love a unique cooking gift.
If you don't know her that well, but would like to get her a really nice present. . . consider gift baskets.
This would be appropriate for a business associate, a bosses' wife, or someone you want to impress.
Any food gift basket,
wine & cheese gift basket, or fruit basket are good women's birthday gift
Regarding the wine - make sure she likes wine. You wouldn't want to give
wine to someone who doesn't drink.
Now if you're a woman purchasing for another woman, it is
acceptable to give her jewelry - especially if it's not too expensive. A nice
pair of feminine earrings is on the top of the list of birthday gift ideas for women.
How I generally shop is. . . if it's for a friend or acquaintance - I consider what we have in common and then shop in that area. For example - I have a friend who is a dog trainer. She loves any kind of dog stuff! She's easy to shop for!
