10 Gifts Women Would Actually Appreciate

By Somdutta Mazumder

Updated - Aug. 12, 2021 6 min read

Gender stereotypes may trick you into comparing the task of buying a gift for a woman, to the quest of climbing a tall, steep mountain. No matter what you pick, what's waiting for you on the other side is a sharp fall into dissatisfaction, disappointment and requests for the receipt. Luckily, we're here to clear these misconceptions. I think I speak for all of woman-kind when I say this, WE JUST WANT GIFTS WE CAN ACTUALLY USE!

 

Now that that's out of the way, its time for some introspection. Are you really surprised that those tickets to the basketball game or that unimaginative photo frame set, did not make her want to run into your arms and proclaim her undying devotion to you? Next time you want to make a lady in your life feel special, just pick a gift that is rooted in practicality. Things she can put to good use, things that will simplify her life at least slightly. Lost? Look for inspiration in this list of gifts for women that they'd actually, genuinely, like. 

 

1. A Journal

INR 499

A bullet journal is the perfect way for a woman to find some artistic release in the process of staying organised. She can doodle when she wants to, put in appointments, create charts and basically get her life together between a few pages of paper. You can get her a pretty blank diary to encourage the habit, or help her ease into the hobby with a reliable daily planner.

Working out in skin-tight leggings can be awkward, to say the least. Not just when you factor in the hot weather and truckload of sweat, but also the discomfort caused by leering stares. Ideal solution? Getting your favourite woman 1 pair of bottoms that give the coverage of 2, AND come with quick sweat management technology that whisks all the moisture away!

5. Jewellery Organiser Box

 

Price

INR 796

 

Why She'd Love It

 

From the popular saying that asserts a woman can never have enough jewellery, we arrive at the second conclusion - a woman can never have enough jewellery organising solutions! Trust me, this comes from someone who's constantly losing her new studs and rings despite the 3 storage boxes on my jewellery counter. We'd also highly recommend making it pretty along with practical, and this trinket organiser from Chumbak fits the bill perfectly.

6. Travel Skincare Kit 

 

Price

INR 899

 

Why She'd Love It

 

I can't begin to explain how badly I've wished for a travel kit of skin care products in my bag, when I've had to stay somewhere overnight. If the woman you intend to shower with a present, has a penchant for skincare regimes and products, gifting her a travel-sized kit of essential products will only serve her well in unexpected future situations. Also, the next time a travel opportunity arises and she doesn't need to try and fit her sizeable products in a compact bag, she's going to thank you for sure!

Because sleep is one of the most important parts of life, and things that bring us closer to a night of restful sleep are always appreciated. A comfy, well-fitting set of cotton PJs is not only very useful when it comes to catching up on ZZZs, but they're also great for lounging around the house and working from home. The pure soft cotton material of the PJ set we're recommending, will ensure your girl stays untroubled through long hours at the desk, and drifts off into a peaceful slumber the minute she hits the sack!

Everything that she needs to take good care of her intimate hygiene, will now be found in a single pouch.

This pack from PeeSafe comes with a powder, wash and set of wipes for intimate hygiene. On top of that, it also has a handy toilet seat sanitiser spray which will work wonders when she's using any public washrooms, coupled with a period cramp relief roll-on for that painful time of the month.
