Birthday Gifts For Women

By: Ken Marlborough

Lewis Carroll once said, "There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get un-birthday presents ... and only one for birthday presents, you know." As Mr. Carroll knew, birthday presents are special, and different from other presents you might be getting all the year round for other occasions. So a birthday gift must be chosen with great care, and it must reflect a woman's personality, her likes, and preferences.

The selection of birthday gifts depends on what your relation is to the person who is receiving the gift, and, of course, the person herself. So if she is a romantic person, her boyfriend or spouse can choose from many gift baskets available on websites like AllOccasionBasket.com. A Bath and Body basket for a relaxing bath is a good option; something more intimate like lingerie is also appreciated.

For friends and co-workers, a newspaper from the day and year of their birth is an ideal gift. A birthstone is a good option for those choosing gifts for a friend, sister, or any other woman you are close to. TheCherryMillShop.com retails birthstones of all twelve months. Glass angels that come in many lovely colors, each color matching that of the birthstone, hold the stones; for example, a green glass angel holds the green birthstone for the month of May.

Jewels are, of course, the eternal favorites of all women, regardless of age. You can't really go wrong there. The only thing to be kept in mind is the kind of jewelry she likes; is she the kind who will appreciate a chic, light platinum chain, or some antique jewelry, or maybe a simple silver plated bracelet?

For the women passionate (and even those not so passionate) about gadgets, electronics like the latest mobile phones, DVD players, and CDs of some special bands are all appreciated. A CD of her favorite band or musician is a gift she will appreciate.

Books are also a good gifting option. A racy thriller, the latest bestseller, or a romance novel is something most women will like.

If you are still not sure of what to gift her, then Birthday tins from websites like AllOccasion.com is the best bet. A birthday tin might contain something like cookies, party blowers, caramel corn, jellybeans, or many other items.
