Make her smile with a unique birthday gift
Ladies love to receive gifts from their loved ones. Birthday celebrations are an excellent opportunity to show your wife, girlfriend, mom, or best friend, what a special place they have in your heart. Sadly, a lot of pressure is often placed on the gift giver. We think it’s not intentional, but nevertheless it still happens.
Finding a gift for her that’s completely unique is going to be virtually impossible. Unless that is, there’s no bottom to your wallet. Gifts for a birthday, come in all shapes and sizes, but are on the whole pretty similar. Your challenge is to find something just a little bit different, or think of a way you make those more common gifts stand out from the crowd.
Why not consider one of the following:
- A unique piece of jewellery – Does she have a favourite precious metal? Does she prefer to wear a certain kind or style of jewellery? Some ladies prefer a more classic look, while other prefer their jewellery to be all sparkles and bright colours. Don’t forget there are certain gemstones that are associated with birthdays, and you should check what stone is suggested for the month of her birthday. But why don’t we save you the worry and give you the list?
- Birthday gemstones:
March: Aquamarine, bloodstone
June: Pearl, moonstone, alexandrite
October: Opal, tourmaline
November: Topaz, citrine
December: Turquoise, zircon, tanzanite
- Beauty treatments tailored to her needs – A day of being pampered will make your special lady feel so very special. When she leaves she’ll be walking on air. Most beauty treatment centres and spas offer a selection of packages. Everything she needs to make her feel special is included in the price. Otherwise pick some individual treatments that you know she’ll enjoy. A new hairstyle, makeover, massage, facial or pedicure – whatever makes her feel good about herself.
- Personalized or handmade – If you make the gift yourself it’s definitely going to make your birthday gift unique. And the good news is you don’t have to be a master craftsperson. There are heaps of ideas on the internet that only require a little effort and a few basic materials. Most sites have illustrations as well as clear instructions, so why not give it a go. If you want to add some personalization, either in the form of an engraving, or personal details, even the most generic gift can be made totally unique.
The gift of an experience will be totally unique
There are a number of different companies offering a chance for the birthday girl to enjoy an experience. Unforgettable experiences are on offer across Canada, or wherever you live. You might be wondering what kind of experiences are available, so let’s give you a little taster:
- Off roading in an adventure buggy – After an initial instruction session she’ll be able to head out on a trail, and experience the thrill of driving through the forest.
