Gift giving can often be stressful because we want to pick something that will make our partner happy but maybe not break the bank as well. Before I break down my suggestions for great holiday gifts, first think back if she made any hints or gave any clues about something she might like. Stuff like, "if we only had one of these, then it would make this task much easier." Those "I heard your hint" gifts are always the best. Gag gifts are good too. But I have found that gifts that follow her Love Language are always a winner, regardless of the price tag. If you are unfamiliar with the love languages, please go check out "The 5 Love Languages" by Gary Chapman. You can follow this link to their website to find out which one matches you and your partner.

These gift ideas are all great no matter what her love language is. But if you pick the one that matches her style, it will surely be more meaningful and hopefully more appreciated.
1. Words of Affirmation
For the woman who loves to hear the words "I love you", give the gift that says it in 100 languages. This pendant not only looks great but shows that you care.
2. Acts of Service
For the woman who goes crazy for acts of service, pick up this luxury bath set. Then head to the nearest pharmacy and pick up a bottle of Foot Lotion (recommend "Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Crème") and a pair of bath slippers if she doesn't already have a pair. When she opens them, explain that after a nice bath with the bath set, you can give her a foot massage with the foot creme and wear the slippers after. Check mate.
3. Receiving Gifts
A gift for the lady who loves receiving gifts, easy. Just get something she can wear out and show off. This SWAROVSKI Women's Infinity Knot Rose-gold Bracelet will work nicely and won't break the break the bank at $99. If she doesn't like jewelry, pick any thing she can wear out (a new pair of shoes, a new jacket, etc.) and you will win every time she wears it and thinks of you.
4. Quality Time
This Coleman 4-Person tent may seem like an odd gift when it's opened. But will quickly turn great when you explain that you want to go on a camping trip to a nearby natural landmark, by a large river, lake or on the beach. Giving this kind of gift will inspire memories for years to come. If camping isn't either of your style, think of something else you both can go do and give that.
5. Physical Touch
This Microfiber Plush Sherpa Throw Blanket is so comfortable you might not want to get off the couch. Pair this with a bottle of wine and that's a wrap. When she opens it, explain that you bought it thinking about cuddling up for the winter and enjoying some good movies together. Like the other gifts on this list, it will be appreciated over and over and reap you even more rewards.
