4 Best Gifts for Tired and Busy Working Women
Soothing, Relaxing, Rejuvenating, Delightful Gift Ideas
I have been a working woman for more than 24 years now and one particular working period stands out because I had to do sooooo much walking and standing that my feet would swell until they were so tight that they felt like they would burst open! So I know what it is like be too exhausted to move.
For four (4) years, I worked at this one particular company in a foreign country and I had to use public transportation to get to my workplace. I would walk from my apartment to the local area bus stand, stand and wait for the bus to arrive and then stand in the bus, if there were no more available seats, when the bus arrived. Then once I got to the city, I would walk from the city bus station to my work place.
At work, I would walk around offices on my floor (the 4th floor) or walk to other floors for information, meetings, to complete transactions etc. Then in the afternoon, I would have to walk from my workplace to the city bus station again and then stand waiting for between 1 to 3 hours to get a bus to go home. Again, I would have to stand in the bus, since, there was almost always no available seats in the afternoon. Finally, I would plod along with my swollen and tired feet from the local area bus stand to my apartment.
I also know what it is like to be so busy, have so many deadlines at work and 'I need it yesterday' requests from my boss that I don't have time to get to anywhere but the supermarket before closing hours. (The supermarket closed at 8:00 p.m.)
So in this article, I will share with you four (4) simple but thoughtful gift ideas that have 'made my day' in the past and which you can purchase for yourself or the working wife, mother, co-worker, aunt, godmother or any other working woman in your life, to soothe her tiredness and bring a smile to her face.
Stay-at-home Moms and Women with home businesses are Working Women too!!! They'll appreciate these gifts just as much as the Office Woman.

Working Woman Gift No. 1: - FOOT MASSAGER, SPA BATH & BODY SET
There's nothing more relaxing than a warm bath, being engulfed with the scents and fragrances you love and a massage for your TIRED & SWOLLEN feet!!
During those four (4) years that I described above, when I reached my apartment, I would have a loooong bath with my favourite scented spa bath (I did not have a bathtub) and then soak my feet in my Dr. Scholls Touch Toe Foot Spa. Yes, that ‘Touch Toe’ feature ensured that I didn’t have to bend down and move any more muscles than were necessary!
With a Foot Massager, Spa Body & Bath Set, you or the working woman you’re planning this treat for can wash away the tiredness any day of the week, any time of the year.
The colour Green and the scent/fragrance of Green Tea are both soothing.
Lavender is one of my favourite scents and colours. So I saved the BEST for last!
Working Woman Gift No. 2: - SOFT LISTENING MUSIC & SCENTED CANDLES
Let your senses bring you the COMFORT you deserve!
Yep! Another FAVOURITE scent of mine - lavender.
If you love roses or flowers, then this is a scent for you.
How Your Favourite Scents & Sounds Bring Soothing Relief
Did you know that "The human sense of smell is a primary factor in the sensation of comfort"?
Well research shows that "The odor molecules transmit messages to the limbic system, the area of the brain that governs emotional responses. Some believe that these messages have the power to alter moods, evoke distant memories, raise their spirits, and boost self-confidence."
My favourite scents (lavender, lilac, cinnamon and cool linen) usually help me feel happy, relaxed and help to wash away my tired and exhausted feelings. It is guaranteed to work for you or the working woman in your life also.
Did you know that listening to Classical Music can improve your overall health and well-being? Dr. Claudius Conrad proved this in his 2007 research article.
For me listening to my favourite soft listening music always helps to soothe, relax and rejuvenate me. So between her favourite smells and favourite relaxing music, you or the working woman in your life will be rejuvenated!
This is one of my FAVOURITE scents. Careful! it will remind you of food too!
An intoxicating and interesting scent that will be pleasing to everyone!

Mixing colour and sound works for me. So you can make the deciding factor for which CD or MP3 you choose be your favourite colour.
This is every bit as relaxing as it looks!
Working Woman Gift No. 3: - SPECIALTY STORE GIFT CARDS
As a working woman, I know that sometimes I just can't seem to find the time to do anything for myself. Most other working women feel the same way.
These Specialty Store Gift Cards are ideal, especially when you don’t know exactly what to get yourself or the working woman in your life but want her to have something that SHE would love. That way, you don’t have to worry about getting her something that she won’t like.
These Specialty Store Gift Cards are also very convenient!. You can e-mail them to the working woman you have in mind, send it to her via Facebook or print it and give it to her in person. You can even personalize the Gift Card by adding a special message or uploading a photo.
What's the occasion?
These Gift Cards are ideal for any and every occasion!
Birthday, Anniversary, Office Gift Exchange, Thank You, Sorry, I Love You.
For the lover of fashionable clothing and bed & bath items.
Working Woman Gift No. 4:
I love jewellery and accessorizing tastefully in order to create different looks. In fact, I take extra special care to dress up when I am feeling ‘low’ because pretty soon with people complimenting the way I look my mood soon picks up. So I have jewelry for work as well as informal or more formal occasions to help with dressing up.
Like me, most working women delight in getting jewelry (jewellery) for any occasion – birthday, anniversary, farewell present, office gift exchange party - and feel truly special when they do receive it.
These exquisite looking sterling pieces will enhance any outfit (work, casual, formal) and have the working woman in your life looking and feeling special!
