Christmas is quickly approaching, I will not tell you how little time you have, but you don’t have much time left! But don’t panic. I have compiled a list that you can use for that special woman in your life that is difficult to buy for. It could be your Mom, sister, grandma, or a good friend. We all have those people in our lives. You could always pass it on to a guy in your life that needs a little help! I will also be putting out a list for the guys in our lives that are difficult to buy for. My husband can be difficult. We always have Amazon boxes showing up at the house, he seems to just buy what he needs and when his birthday or Christmas rolls around it makes it difficult to come up with ideas for him. Can anyone else relate?

I don’t know about you but I love receiving gifts from people that are unique or that have a special meaning. Maybe something that I would not want to purchase myself. I think it goes back to when I was a child and my Mom would get us gifts that seemed special and that we kept for a long time because it had meaning. Not just a sweater that you can pick up from anywhere or a gift card. Not that there is anything wrong with that, we should appreciate anything that people go out of their way to do or buy us.
Do you have anything from when you were a child that you cherish or even as an adult, have you received a gift that you know someone spent time thinking what would make you happy? I know I have and it makes me feel so good when this does happen.
I have compiled a list of 10 gift ideas that could be used for a hard-to-buy-for woman in your life. I would suggest tailoring it to the person in your life if possible. But some of the ideas are great and you could just go with them! 🙂
I have several monogrammed necklaces and I love all of them! You have a few different options with these between whether to use initials or a full name and the style of necklace. I am going to share several ideas below. I think this is a very thoughtful and personal gift and it doesn’t have to be super expensive if you don’t want it to be.
Monthly Gift Box
I received this as a gift from my husband for one year. I had Birchbox and received multiple beauty samples monthly. Sometimes I even received full-size products. This is a great way to try different products that you would never have thought of and may end up loving! If you have a woman in your life that loves beauty products one of these would be a great gift idea! Birchbox,Stichfix, and Ipsy
To be honest this is a great gift idea for a lot of people besides the favorite women in your life. We had a large family photo canvas made and I love it! We had one made for my mother-in-law also and she loved it. There are so many options that you can go with here, family photo, kids, pets, vacation photo, wedding, graduation, and I could go on and on.
Monogrammed Straw Clutch
I bought one of these for myself this year because we were supposed to go on an anniversary trip in the spring. Well, it got canceled because of Covid-19 so I didn’t get to use it for that. I normally would not have bought it for myself and it is a great gift idea for someone else. It is one of the bags that you might not think of or want to purchase yourself but is so happy you have it.
This is a great gift for someone that has moved out of their home state or town. My daughter had moved to Chicago and I bought her one that smelled like Ohio. Believe it or not these small nice not bad. It is a very nice and thoughtful gift that isn’t expected.
I know I love a new designer bag but I am always too cheap to purchase one myself. How about you? I typically get mine as gifts from my husband. If you can purchase a nice designer bag for one of the women in your life I think it would be appreciated! They have outlets for a lot of designer bags. I know both Coach and Michael Kors have outlet stores and you can usually get a great deal there.
Digital Photo Frame
I know, more photos! Can’t you go wrong with photos for someone that you care about! I love receiving special memories as gifts. I have a digital photo frame and I love it, it has a USB that I load new images on whenever I want so I always have new and updated photos to look at. If you have an older woman in your life you could preload it for them and all they have to do is plug it in! Memories instantly!
Monogrammed Tote/Beach Bag
I love all things monogrammed! I believe a lot of people enjoy receiving gifts that are monogrammed because it shows that you thought ahead and personalized the gift. Tote bags can be used for just about anything and can be used for years! There are a lot of options, leather, canvas, beach bag, or straw.
Personalized Phone Case
Just about everyone has a phone, even my Dad does but he has a flip phone so I guess he doesn’t need a case for it! They make such cute cases for phones nowadays. You can personalize them with a photo or monogram. It might even be kind of funny to put a big picture of yourself on it!
Monogrammed Tumbler/Can Holder
The best way to make sure no one else uses your tumbler is to monogram it! This is typically a thing that most people do not purchase on their own, they may purchase a tumbler but they don’t go the extra step and have it personalized.
