Your wife—she makes every day special, so how can do you the same for her this Christmas? Here’s the good news: you don’t have to spend a lot of money to give her a meaningful present. More good news: we’re here to give you some tips for taking ordinary Christmas gift ideas and kicking them up a notch.

Time To Relax

Maybe it’s a little time for herself—a day at a spa, a shopping trip without the kids or a dinner out with friends. They’re all nice ideas, but how do you make these gifts even more special and heartfelt? Well, rather than placing a spa gift card under the tree, for example, put it in a greeting card with a handwritten note that says you notice how much time she spends doing things for everyone else, so you want her to be able to enjoy a bit of pampering for herself. Pair it with a comfy new robe and a scented candle.

Another idea is to let her have the house to herself for the evening to host a ladies’ night. You can present this to her with some items that will help her entertain, such as this reversible serving board, a mini cheese board, and a cocktail prep set

Memory-makers

Your smartphone is probably filled with photos of your everyday events together. Put them to good use by creating personalized stationery, photo or note cards, a book, coasters, framed prints, or a 16-month calendar she can keep on her desk.  

Go one step further by wrapping your gift in festive tissue paper, placing it in a gift bag with a bottle of wine and a handwritten card.

Another way to show your thoughtfulness is with a jar of Christmas wishes. On small strips of paper, write down everything you wish for her in the coming year. From the outside, it looks like an ordinary decorative jar, but inside she’ll see all the time you put into letting her know you care.

Personalized Gifts

Almost anything can be personalized, which gives you countless opportunities to create a gift that is truly one-of-a-kind. Of course, you can give her something traditional like an engraved necklace or a monogrammed bag, but consider thinking outside the box.

If she has a favorite place to dine, for example, print out one of their menus with her name and a reservation date at the top. Add tickets to a movie or a concert if it’s within reason. If she loves to travel, wrap a beautifully monogrammed luggage tag and place it inside a small travel bag. Add a travel journal and include a personalized note that tells her you can’t wait until your next adventure together.
