Christmas Gifts For Her - 10 Great Xmas Present Ideas For Women

Updated on March 17, 2011

Looking for the perfect Christmas gifts for the women in your life? This article lists the ten hottest Xmas presents for her this year, and there's plenty to choose from, whatever her taste.

1. Apple iPod Nano

An MP3 player is indispensable these days, and the iPod Nano is among the most popular on the market, making it a cool Christmas gift idea. It is slimline and elegant, and the latest model has a storage capacity of either 8GB (2,000 songs) or 16GB (4,000 songs). She'll love the gorgeous anodized finish and choice of vibrant colors, and the Nano does much more than just play music  – it also has an FM radio and video camera, plus a pedometer, making it a great accessory for the fitness-conscious too.

2. Jewelry

Most women like jewelry, making this one of the most popular Christmas present choices for women, including wives, girlfriends, mothers, sisters, female friends and others. There's a huge range to choose from both online and off, so you're sure to find something to suit both your budget and her taste. As well as the usual items such as bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings, consider other jewelry such as body jewelry, bag charms, phone charms etc too. Remember that you'll probably find a larger range and better prices if you buy online.

3. Belgian Chocolates

Like jewelry, chocolates are another very popular Xmas gift for her. Even the most figure-conscious women will often enjoy indulging in chocolate on special occasions such as Christmas, so if you're looking for an easy, no-fuss gift that is sure to be appreciated, chocolate could be it. Don't get just any old chocolate though – Belgian chocolate is generally of very high quality, and makes a much better impression than the cheap and inferior brands that are made with vegetable oils and other undesirable ingredients.

4. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Perfume

Does your female recipient like perfume, but you don't know which one to get? She may enjoy Dolce & Gabbana's Light Blue, which is currently extremely popular. Light Blue is a vibrant but not overpowering fragrance that includes notes of citrus, apple, bluebell, jasmine, bamboo, rose, cedarwood, amber and musk. It is available in various formats, including Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette, as well as body lotion and other toiletry products.

5. Canon Digital Camera

A digital camera is another indispensable item, and if your lady friend or relative doesn't currently have one, or is looking for a better model, you could splash out and surprise her with a digital camera Christmas gift. Canon is among the best camera brands in the world, and there's a huge range of Canon cameras to choose from, from small point and click models to high end SLRs.

6. Espresso Machine

If she needs a coffee to get going in the mornings, an espresso machine might be the perfect Christmas gift for her. Home espresso machines are very popular, and there are lots of different models to choose from. Popular brands include Delonghi and Mr. Coffee, and you can buy machines that make enough for multiple cups at a time. Alternatively, you can get combination espresso/coffee or espresso/cappuccino makers – great if she likes other types of coffee too.

7. Apple iPhone

Apple's iPhone is a great Christmas present idea for women who want a phone that not only keeps them in touch with family and friends, but boasts a huge range of other features too. These include a video camera, a digital camera, MP3 player, voice control functionality, a compass, internet accessibility and much more. The iPhone is available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB versions.

8. Lingerie

Lingerie is another staple Christmas present for women, especially from male partners. Of course sexy lingerie is popular with both sexes, though it must be said that many gifts of this kind of underwear are bought mainly for the man's enjoyment – so if you want her to be really happy with her present, but the type of underwear that she likes – which might be less raunchy, and more comfortable!

9. Waterford Crystal

Great Christmas gifts for mom and other relatives and friends include Waterford Crystal ornaments and other items. Waterford Crystal designs are renowned throughout the world for their quality and elegance, and are sure to be appreciated by any house-proud person who loves beautiful things. You can choose from china and glass crystal ornaments, as well as other homeware items such as lamps, bowls, flatware and much more, and personalized Christmas gifts are also available.

10. Antique Collectables

Finally, if you're looking for a more unusual Christmas gift for her, consider antique or vintage items. Unlike the mass produced items that are available to everybody, antiques are by definition much rarer, so she can enjoy a one of a kind gift. Local antique stores are good places to look, but don't forget that you have access to a huge variety of unique items online, both in specialist antique sites and on eBay, where you'll often find some incredible bargains.
