While it can be fun to give something that is trendy or quirky, if the gift is to be remembered it should be timeless. Luckily there are many gift ideas that are so special they are passed from generation to generation and eventually achieve heir loom status. The following ideas will jumpstart the search for the perfect gift.
Jewelry is a Popular Christmas Favorite
A favorite of most women, jewelry has the power to reach into the heart. The item must fit into the stated budget, but the good news is that the gift can be anything from a small pendant to an extravagant right hand ring. It is also a good idea to take a peek at the pieces the lucky lady already has so that it is easier to choose something she will like. When in doubt take her browsing arbitrarily or point to pictures in magazines and ask her opinion.
A Family Tree Frame Can Make Christmas Special
This makes a great gift because the Christmas season is all about family and women especially are the traditional keepers of the roost. A family tree frame is a nice way of celebrating genealogy and providing a beautiful way to display family pictures. They can be engraved with the family name for a personalized touch.
Crystal Figurines or Serving Pieces Make Great Gifts
Crystal makes a beautiful addition to any home and gives women the chance to add to a collection or start one of their own. Crystal pieces come in large and small sizes and they can be found in almost any shape imaginable. From classy figurines to jewelry, candle sticks, book ends and decanters, the options are literally endless.
Give Something Seasonal for Christmas
A beautiful and timeless Christmas ornament or a gorgeous tree-top both make great gifts. Collectable nativity scenes are another great option for gift giving. They will be treasured and taken out every year at Christmas time.
A Literary Classic Can Make a Lovely Gift for Readers
If the lady in question has a literary love of the classics these great books can make the perfect gift. Look for a beautifully bound edition of her favorite story and present it to her on Christmas morning with a lovely inscription inside. This treasure is sure to beat getting the edition on the Kindle and will look great on her book shelf or perched on her nightstand for years to come.
Timeless gifts last for years because they are well loved and of good quality. If the gifts chosen meet these two simple requirements they are sure to be cherished for years and years.
