Let’s be honest, buying gifts for your lovely lady can be a pain in the ass—for you and her. You might have some great ideas, but who knows whether or not it’s actually what she wants. Not to mention shopping for her is exhausting and boarders on sensory over-load.
Take it from me, the woman in your life doesn’t want to get another coupon book full of free hugs, or jewelry she doesn’t like. Here are five gifts that she’ll actually use, and you won’t have to navigate the tween nightmare of a mall to buy.
If your girl doesn’t already have a tablet, chances are that’s she’s got her eye on one (heck, you probably do too).
There are plenty of tablet buying guides that can help you pick out the tablet that will fit her needs. If she reads more than surfing the web, you should consider getting her an e-reader.
Tablet buying can be super quick and easy, if you buy online, you don’t even have to leave the couch.
2. Concert Tickets
There are plenty of sites that make buying concert tickets a breeze. You can search by artist, city, price, or venue. If you and your girl have similar taste in music, take her to a concert for a surprise date night.
If you can’t stand the music she listens to, treat her and her best girlfriend with tickets. Either way, shopping for tickets is easy, and you might have fun going with her.
3. Spa Day
If spas are a completely foreign subject to you, simply use a service like Spa Finder to find highly rated spas in your area, and buy a gift certificate online. You don’t have to understand the slew of services to pamper her.
But let’s be honest, wouldn’t you love a spa day too? If you’re up for a new experience, treat her to a couple’s spa day, or pamper her with a day alone if you’re not up to a day of indulgence.
4. Keurig Coffee Maker
If your lady is a coffee or tea lover, she will thank you daily for buying her a Keurig coffee maker. These machines make brewing a cup of Joe a breeze, which is perfect if your woman is a whirlwind of clothes and makeup in the morning.
And wouldn’t you love quick and convenient coffee every morning too? Again, this coffee maker is available online, which makes buying it super easy.
5. Digital Camera
Who doesn’t love getting a new camera? Spoil the lady in your life by picking out a top of the line digital camera for her to document your memories together with.
You can probably get better deals on a camera if you buy online, so shopping doesn’t have to be a big outing.
Buying gifts for her doesn’t have to be a stressful and overwhelming experience—just go with one (or more, if you’re feeling generous) of these five ideas, and you don’t have to worry about disappointing her or wearing yourself out.
