Thoughtful Christmas Gift Ideas for Her

Need to find a gift for one of the special women in your life? Picking unique Christmas gifts for her, gifts that reflect her personality and interests, will make your present more meaningful and score big smiles.

A Guide to Finding the Right Christmas Gifts for Women in Your Life

For the Foodie: Searching for ideas that your favorite food-lover will be sure to savor? Hands-on experiences such as cooking classes or winery tours could be perfect Christmas gift ideas for her. If you’re not quite sure where her epicurean interests lie, an American Express® Gift Card allows her the flexibility to pick out what satisfies her gourmet craving. She can use the gift card to buy a specialty kitchen gadget or treat herself to a meal at her favorite restaurant.

For the Bookworm: Is she a voracious reader? Then a thought-provoking book might be the most welcome and unique Christmas gift for her. Truly avid readers will appreciate the gift of an e-reader—an easy way to give her an entire library at her fingertips. Another option is a coffee table book. Coffee table books come in every genre and category, and serve as both stimulating conversation starters and stylish centerpieces.

American Express Gift Cards: The Gifts that Stand Out
  • Can be used virtually anywhere in the U.S. where American Express Cards are accepted
  • Safer than cash because the funds can be replaced if lost or stolen*
  • Choose from a variety of designs appropriate for Christmas

For the Nature Lover: Whether or not you’re well-versed in the world of outdoor adventure, a quick trip to your local sporting goods store can provide plenty of Christmas gifts for women who love the great outdoors. Match your gift to the activity she loves most, such as binoculars for a bird-watcher or a digital compass for a camping enthusiast.

For the Sharp Dresser: Choosing an outfit for your favorite fashionista can be tricky, especially where styles and sizing are concerned. (It’s easy to accidently offend by purchasing an incorrect size or style.) When shopping for a style-maven, gift cards—accompanied by a selection of photographs of outfits you think she would love —might be better Christmas gifts for her than the actual clothes themselves. Gift cards provide her the opportunity to pick and choose unique pieces that suit her personal style.

For the Artist: If the woman in question is a creative type, a gift of an artistic experience can be a great way to show you care. Give a gift that complements the artistic medium she enjoys most, such as museum passes or a do-it- yourself design class. If her artistic eye tends to be unconventional, American Express Gift Cards could be perfect Christmas gifts for her, giving her the creative freedom to express her unique style or stock up on art supplies, all with a simple swipe.

The most important thing to keep in mind when shopping for a special woman in your life is that Christmas gifts for her should come from the heart. All of these unique Christmas gift ideas for women are great ways to keep her spirits bright this season, but if you’re still unsure of what would make her happiest, one of the variety of American Express Gift Cards, further personalized with your own ideas for gifts and experiences she might use it for, is a thoughtful gift that ensures she’ll get what’s on her Christmas list.
