Choosing just the right present for someone special can make the heart flutter or the toes curl – depending on your reputation for gift giving. The next perfect gift might not spring instantly to mind when you hear the words, anniversary or birthday but you do know her. And if you call to mind the things that make her smile, before long you will be able to conjure up a whole host of items you know she hopes to open on that special day.
If the conjuring those ideas is taking longer than you’d hoped, consider:
Has she been dropping any hints about things she wants to do or places she’d like to go?
What has she been talking about spoiling herself with recently?
Has she mentioned running out of anything lately – perfume, face-cream, a favorite pair of shoes wearing out or a well loved purse that’s broken?
Once you’ve answered these questions, take the time to think about the sort of person your special someone is. Does she like the exotic, the wild, the bold or the serenely simple?
Going all out is great if it’s going to be well received but if your sweetheart is not one for the lavish – keep it on the simple side.
So, you know what she’s hoping for – and what she’s hoping to avoid. Now what? It’s time to go Etsy-shopping!
Read on through our carefully chosen Etsy gifts for her, picked by women for women so the occasion that’s approaching goes down a storm – for both of you.
