Gifts are always a challenge because almost everyone suffers from a shortage of ideas. Even if we know a person really well, buying them a present can be quite painful. There is the fear that the present might not be significant enough, they might not like it and so on. On top of all this, even more difficult times are coming since Christmas is getting closer. As the year draws to a close, everyone started building their own shopping lists with gifts. The ones that want to save themselves from some trouble and avoid the busy month of December should start shopping early. It never hurts to be prepared and that also includes doing a bit of research in terms of gift ideas.
For gift ideas, people use the internet since there are a lot of resources out there but most of them are quite unappealing when it comes to suggested Christmas presents.

10. RAVPower 16750mAh External Battery Pack
They say we live in a connected world. Everyone uses their smartphone anywhere, anytime for pretty much anything and we all know that battery life is a problem. The RAVPower external battery is a good companion for the ones that spend a lot of time with their smartphone. It will be able to charge the phone several times. It will prove to be useful when commuting, traveling and whenever there is no wall plug around. This might not seem like a great gift but for a woman that uses the smartphone a lot, it will prove to be quite useful.
- Large 16750 mAh capacity
- Works with Android and Apple phones
- Charges 2 devices at a time
Having a large capacity means that it uses more battery cells. This translates into more weight. It is a rather heavy external battery but it is still portable enough. It can be carried in a purse or backpack without feeling that it adds too much weight.
9. AirSense Smart Air Quality Monitor & Ion Purifier
There are plenty of ways to take care of our health and improve our lifestyle. A convenient way to do it is to get an air purifier. The AirSense Smart air purifier is a gorgeous little device. It is shaped like a circle with a wooden exterior and an inner ring that is illuminated. The device can detect temperature, humidity and send alerts to a smartphone. It also works as a wireless speaker or it can record voice. The main utility of the device is to purify the air and detect harmful elements.
- Modern and attractive design
- Works as a wireless speaker and sends alerts to mobile devices
- Detects harmful elements and purifies the air
Even if it was designed as an air purifier, it does not work in large rooms. It cannot handle large volumes of air. The ion cleaning function is difficult to track or if it has any effect. It is still an attractive and useful device due to all the features it comes with.
8. Samsung Galaxy Tab E Lite
Samsung Galaxy Tab E Lite is a good pick for a woman that travels often. It can replace a laptop since it can be used for productivity tools and has a decent 7 inch screen that makes it easy to watch video files or stream movies. The device offers a 9 hour battery uptime and comes with a 32 GB internal memory that can be expanded. In terms of hardware, the tablet uses a quad-core CPU and 1 GB of RAM that makes it quite snappy and responsive.
- Compact, easy to carry around
- Responsive and quite fast
- 32 GB internal memory, expandable
The tablet has only Wi-Fi for internet access. It does not have a 3G/4G SIM card slot meaning that it cannot be connected to the internet unless there is a wireless access point close by. It is still a great tablet especially for what it offers for its low price tag.
7. Fossil Q Wander Gen 2 Light Brown Leather Touchscreen Smartwatch
Fossil Q Wander Gen 2 leather smartwatch can be a great gift for a person that uses their smartphone a lot. It is an extention to any Android an iOS smartphone and looks great at the same time. It has a sport design but without being a unisex model. It is a watch that will mostly appeal to young women that like a great looking piece of technology. What is most impressive is the fact that it is quite inexpensive compared with the more popular smartwatches from brands such as Samsung or Sony.
- Works with iOS and Android devices
- Can take calls, emails, text messages, app notifications
- Activity tracker
In order to keep the smartwatch as thin as possible some compromises were made. The built-in battery is not that large. A single charge should be enough for about 24 hours which is not bad but not great either. Other smartwatches can work even for 2 days before needing to be charged.
6. Diamond Delight Sterling Silver Anger Feather Wing Diamond Necklace
Diamond Delight Sterling Silver Angel Feather Wind diamond necklace is a gift nobody can go wrong with. Jewelry is always a great gift and it is forever. A well-made necklace will not deteriorate in time. The design of this particular model is quite appealing. It has two angler wings with detailed feathers and round decorative diamonds. The necklace is made entirely out of silver and 0.45 carat diamonds.
- Made out of silver and genuine diamonds
- Gorgeous design and concept
- Cable chain with lobster claw clasps
There are other silver and diamond necklaces for slightly lower price tags. Still there is always the risk of getting crystals instead of diamonds. This particular model uses genuine diamonds which explains the higher price tag.
5. Kattee Women’s Vintage Genuine Leather Tote Shoulder Bag
Who does not like a stylish, well made shoulder bag? It never hurts to get an extra one which is why this can be a great gift idea but not everything goes. There is a genuine flood of cheaply made shoulder bags. The Kattee Women’s Vintage leather shoulder bag is the exact opposite. It is made out of genuine leather with a modern but classic design at the same time. The bag is also quite functional with 2 zippered pockets and 2 open pockets. It is large enough to hold a 15 inch laptop and it is available in 4 different colors.
- Made out of genuine leather
- Plenty of interior space, can hold a 15 inch laptop
- 4 colors available
This is a rather large shoulder bag. It will not be appealing to every woman but it does have a classy design. Being large enough to hold a 15 inch laptop also means that it is a bit heavy even when it is empty.
4. Amazon Tap
The Amazon Tap might seem like an unusual Christmas gift for a woman or girl but thinking about it, it does make a lot of sense. This device was made to handle a lot of tasks simply by asking it. It can play music from a wide range of sources, it can perform web searches, it can order items, food, it can control other smart household electronics. This makes it a wonder device and all it takes is to ask it to do something. New features are added all the time with automatic software updates.
- Can play music over Bluetooth or various internet sources
- Works with voice commands
- Reads news, performs searches, orders food, checks the weather
- You have to push a button to use Alexa
For such a smart device, it has a rather not so smart way of using voice commands. In order to use Alexa, the user needs to press the button with the microphone sign on the unit. This needs to be done every time when someone wants to interact with Alexa. Hopefully, a software update will make the button obsolete.
3. Amazon Kindle Voyage
Amazon Kindle Voyage is one of the newer generations that comes with several design improvements. The Kindle Voyage is slimmer and features a higher resolution screen having a display with 300 ppi. This makes it look almost the same as a real printed page. The battery of the device lasts for weeks while the light sensor adjusts the brightness based on the level of the ambient light.
- Slim, long lasting battery
- High resolution display
- Adaptive screen brightness
- Touchscreen can be slow at times
The touchscreen works flawlessly most of the times. It does have some issues when performing certain actions. For example, if a user attempts to highlight a text segment, the animation seems to be delayed a bit by one second. Since most other actions do not have any kind of responsiveness issue, this problem might be caused by software issues.
2. Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Gold Couture
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Gold Couture is probably the least popular perfume from the famous fashion house. This is a good thing especially since there are very few people to actually dislike the perfume. Viva La Juicy Gold Couture is a gourmand fragrance with nodes of caramel, vanilla, amber, sandalwood, blackcurrant and jasmine. It is feminine and playful. Being a sweet fragrance, it is mostly recommended for the cooler weather. In the summer it can choke the ones around.
- Feminine and youthful
- Long lasting, projects well
- Uncommon, not a lot of women wear it
- Too sweet for warm weather
It is quite rare to find a perfume that is strong enough for the winter but fresh enough for the summer. There are a few perfumes that are versatile and can be used in all weather types but this is not the case with the Juicy Couture. It is a perfume that shines in the winter and cold autumn and spring days.
1. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera Bundle
Everyone surely remembers the classic instant cameras from their childhood. They are still around and truth be told, an instant camera makes things more memorable. Digital photos get forgotten, deleted or simply have no meaningful value. The Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 instant film camera is a modern device using new technology to print photos on the spot. It is the ultimate travel companion to save memories that will last a lifetime. The camera uses Fujifilm instant film which offers 20 instant shots. The bundle includes 2 film packs, batteries, battery charger and the camera itself.
- Includes rechargeable batteries, charger and 2 film packs
- Compact, easy to use
- Automatic exposure, optimized for portraits
- Includes a screen protector and wipes
It sounds odd but the fact that the bundle includes a screen protector and wipes is very weird since the camera itself does not have a screen. It is unclear why the manufacturers chose to add these to the pack but for sure, they will prove to be absolutely worthless.
How To Not Fail When Getting Her A Christmas Gift
It is extremely easy to fail when it comes to Christmas gifts. You cannot ask her if she likes something because that would give it away. You have to guess if she will like the gift. This means that you need to know a few things like what is she into, is there something she wanted to buy for herself but did not get the chance to do it, something that she wants but never gets, a hobby that she has and so on.
A more thoughtful gift can be something that involves the both of you. Something like a camera for vacations together, dancing lessons or even matching accessories are all good ideas. What is important is to set a budget and a category of items that she might enjoy. Our list should be able to help a bit with that.
