It's the time of the year again. We all know what's been haunting you for the past month as you anxiously look at the days go by in a flash. With Christmas soon encroaching, the question "what should I get her for Christmas?" has gradually transformed into an alarm bell in your head. To help lessen your worries, we have compiled the top 10 gifts that girls want for Christmas this year that will have the answers to your pressing question. Whether it is for your significant other, your friends or family, you will no longer need to dread the upcoming holidays.
1. Beauty Products
Every girl needs her basic skin care products such as a good cleanser, moisturiser and sunscreen. Beauty products are without a doubt the most useful gift one can receive for Christmas. Almost all the girls surveyed stated that they needed to replenish their products that are almost empty. Since different products are specially made for particular skin types, be sure to find out the specific brands she uses before purchasing anything. She might hit the roof if you get her "anti-ageing" products but she will definitely be grateful in a few years down the road.
2. Books and Stationery
Since we are approaching the start of a brand new year, another popular need would be 2016 planners. Besides being an easy and affordable gift to purchase, you can also be assured that your gift wouldn't go to waste. It is definitely an appropriate gift to anticipate the approaching New Year. Additionally, you could also purchase matching stationery to accompany the planner.
Alternatively, why not help her complete her never ending "to-read" list by giving her some books this Christmas? Books are not necessarily confined to fiction, but there are also several motivating non-fiction reads or unique travel journals that might feed her wanderlust.
3. A Weekend Getaway
Without a doubt, everybody needs a breather, especially when we are just about to kick start another hectic year. You might not be able to squeeze in time for a holiday, but she will definitely appreciate a weekend away. From our research, several ladies revealed that Bali and Phuket are the ideal destination spots for a quick getaway. With the beautiful beaches and affordable plane tickets, it is the perfect way to end the year.
If time is too tight to leave the country, a handful expressed their interest in a staycation. Recently, staycations have become so prevalent due to busy schedules and the emergence of several affordable boutique hotels. Treat her and yourself to a night's stay in one of the many boutique hotels in Singapore. With different hotels embodying particular themes, staycations are undeniably a refreshing experience and are bound to leave you urging for the next one soon.
Ever heard of "diamonds are a girl's best friend"? No, I am not asking you to splurge on diamonds this Christmas (you could though). Instead, accessories are a more affordable and practical alternative. You might probably be picturing her ridiculous earring collection and thinking, "she doesn't need anymore of those!" Well, she does. Be it earrings, necklaces or bracelets, there will always be a need to get new designs for different occasions. With accessories coming in so many different shapes and sizes, how can it ever be enough?
5. Sports Wear
With the rising trend of eating clean and #fitspo everywhere on social media, it is not surprising if she has jumped on the bandwagon as well. Instead of dismissing her sudden interest in going to the gym as simply superfluous, show her your support by purchasing a new set of gym clothes so she can confidently sashay into yoga class every Saturday morning. Besides, these exorbitant gym fees are worth the numerous health benefits in the long run.
Scented candles are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they also smell extremely good. If you are looking for a kick, Yankee Candle has a wide array of interesting scents such as Gingerbread, Cotton Candy and even Chocolate Cake (gasp!). She will have the entire room smelling like freshly baked cookies with just a tiny flame. (Don’t worry, there are no calories involved here).
Treat her to a day of relaxation — spa, manicure and pedicure, hot sauna and a full body massage. She will definitely come back contented and refreshed.
8. Bathroom Essentials
With several holidays such as Christmas, New Year's and Chinese New Year just around the corner, the preparation of ensuring a clean house will undoubtedly be tedious and time consuming. Help her out this Christmas by gifting her necessary bathrooms essentials such as bath towels, soaps and organisers. Bathroom items are also an easy gift if you are merely purchasing a gift for an acquaintance or for a gift exchange. Everybody needs them!
Here's a tip: several girls have stated the allure of Lush's bath bombs (if she has a bathtub). Be sure to check out Lush for their distinctively attractive and colourful bath products.
9. Kitchen Equipment
Make her food more Instagram worthy by giving her new plates and cutlery for her flat lay photos. There are endless things a girl wants that will spruce her kitchen up. If you are feeling creative, you can always give her DIY glasses by personalising the designs.
10. Girls Love Anything
Contrary to popular belief, girls are not picky creatures. Random gifts, albeit small, will always be appreciated by her. We have compiled a list of items as pictured in the collage that have been mentioned a couple of times. Do not be afraid to get her something silly, as "tis the season to be jolly" after all!
