The average Australian male doesn’t like to shop, and this mild feeling of annoyance is replaced with dread come Christmas time. Whether you have been dating for a month, a year, or five years, buying your girlfriend a great Christmas gift is kind of a big deal. And, with all the ensuing hashtags and photos that will inevitably appear on social media come December 25 such as #luckygirl, #igotspoilt, and #myboyfriendisbetterthanyours, the pressure is now even higher than ever to find a gift that she’ll be proud to show off.
Finding the right gift isn’t about throwing away all your money – it should be about picking what’s most likely to reflect her interests and her style. Luckily for you, most women just want to be spoilt so here are a few ideas (within your preferred budget) that will make it easy to find the perfect Christmas gift for your girlfriend:
Christmas Gifts under $50: What woman doesn’t love pyjamas! Spoil her this Christmas with Peter Alexander PJs. Their latest collection features loveable Disney characters from your girlfriend’s childhood. Let her reminisce with her favourite Princesses while she has sweet dreams: buy a pair of mini shorts, a tee, a tank, or even a pair of slippers – she’ll definitely be enjoying her time in bed with these cute Christmas gifts.
Christmas Gifts between $50-$100: Surprise her with gold class tickets to a movie she’s been dying to see. Not only will she appreciate the fact that you have been paying attention to her, but what makes this a cute Christmas gift is that you and her are spending quality time together. Gold Class tickets are available at Village Cinemas and include luxury reclining seats, state-of-the-art cinema technology, a bar to sip and enjoy a glass of champagne, and a personal waiter service. For an unforgettable experience that you can share with your girlfriend, Gold Class tickets are the perfect heartfelt Christmas gift.
Christmas Gifts between $100-200: There’s no better way to spoil your girlfriend and show how much you love her than to indulge her with a deluxe gift pack from The Body Shop. Whether she’s a working woman or studying hard, juggling career or her family, she will truly appreciate this chance to escape reality for a bit to focus on her health and wellbeing. These types of gifts are so decadent that women usually feel guilty buying it for themselves, which makes this present that much more special. Treat her to the Spa of the World™ gift pack or the Bowl of Japanese Cherry Blossom gift pack – both include DIY bath and body products that will make her feel so good this holiday season.
Christmas Gifts over $200: The sky is really the limit when it comes to a budget this generous. If your girlfriend has expensive taste, buy a genuine designer bag or a pair of notorious red-bottomed Christian Louboutins. If she’s the adventurous type, a gift voucher from Adrenaline will get her blood pumping. Alternatively, you could impress her with a classy watch or a set of pretty gold earrings. Or, you know, you could just buy her an engagement ring (hint, hint.)
As you might have already guessed from the above list, when it comes to girlfriend Christmas gift ideas for 2015, anything goes. The most important thing to keep in mind is that this festival season is meant to be a time of love and giving, so she’ll appreciate whatever you put under her Christmas tree (as long as you put a little bit of thought into it!)
