The Perfect Guide to Buying Her a Meaningful Gift
Feeling discouraged and a little clueless?
If the time to think about the gift for the woman in your life has come, and you don't have an idea of what to buy her, don't worry, you are not alone.
And it is precisely to assist all those clueless and desperate husbands that I have created this guide, which will ensure that the gift they select reflects the love they feel for that special person.
Let’s get started:
Always remember that the gift is for her, not for you!
It might sound strange, but for instance a dear friend, who abstains from alcoholic beverages, was given a DIVINE machine for Christmas by her husband, enabling her to prepare drinks that she avoids but that he enjoys so, please... DONT!
Be observant and plan ahead of time.
There is no better way to give a meaningful gift than to pay attention to details. If you know you need to buy a gift for a birthday, Christmas, or other special occasion, pay close attention to conversations you will have with your partner a few months earlier.
You can probably figure a way to find out if there is anything specific that she wants or lacks without being obvious.
Practice your detective skills.
Should I tell you something that only a woman knows?
There is no better surprise than discovering that the gift one is receiving (no matter how expensive or inexpensive) is the result of the other person's efforts to delight and make the recipient happy. The process of knowing that someone took the time to research what would make us happy is often remembered far more fondly than the gift itself.
And I have a fantastic example for you:
Jett, the husband of my friend Julia, texted me a few months ago. She and I have known each other for over 40 years. He explained that he needed to buy a gift for her because they were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary, and because "silver" is used to commemorate that special occasion, he thought of me. He remembered once Julia told him about Nueve Sterling, my Mexican silver jewelry business, so he thought that if the gift came from me, it would add to the surprise.
Jett and I had never been in direct contact before, he managed to obtain my details in order to share his plans with me so that we could find a lovely present for Julia.
That's exactly what happened. When Julia opened the gift and saw the "Nueve Sterling" logo on the box, she burst into tears before even opening it. Jett was not only giving her a wonderful silver necklace to commemorate their 25th wedding anniversary, but he also knew that our friendship would add a special touch to the gift that he had lovingly planned months in advance
Way to go Jett!

If you don't have the time or patience to gather that much information, but still want to impress your partner, there are other ways to do so.
Did you know that there is a list of gems associated with your birth month? That's right, all you have to do, is figure out what type of jewelry she usually wears and then buy her a nice piece with the stone representing her birth month.

Here, you need to consider the type of metals she frequently uses because, occasionally, it's not just a matter of taste, but rather an allergy. It would be very sad if you gave her something lovely that she adores but can't wear because it hurts her.
Her size is also important because if she likes flashy accessories, you should buy her something large and visible, whereas if she is very discreet, something small and delicate would be more appropriate.
If you're going to buy her earrings, make sure you know whether she prefers them long or glued to her ear. Some women prefer both versions, while others prefer only one of them. As a result, make sure that the earrings you buy are of the same format as the ones she usually wears.
If you’ve decided that you would like to get her a ring, you must secretly take one of her usual rings and trace the inner circumference of it on a sheet of paper, to later compare with the table of measurements that the jewelry store where you intend to purchase the ring will undoubtedly have.
Check out the SIZE CHART link to learn how the size chart works when purchasing rings.
Numbers and zodiac symbols can also be useful. If she has a thing for a certain number, you could use that information to your advantage and give her a gift related to that number.
A small pendant with a connection to a hobby or extremely specific taste is always well received. This works particularly well with young couples, where the attention to detail compensates for a lack of purchasing power.

If the gift is for your wedding anniversary, I have another great suggestion for you.
You've probably heard of golden or silver wedding anniversaries, right?; similarly to birthstones, there's a list with the elements associated with each year of marriage.
Check the list that giftsforyounow.com prepared with the traditional gift and some gifts ideas for the anniversary to be celebrated. There are many options available that will relieve the burden of having to find a special gift to commemorate such a significant occasion.
I remember once I received a call from someone who wanted to buy his wife a present for their wedding anniversary. He wanted to get something special because they were about to celebrate 35 years of marriage. Knowing that coral is typically used for that specific anniversary, he looked on my website and found a lovely necklace and pair of coral flower earrings, which he bought for her.
Without a doubt, this is a lovely way to present a gift that will leave a lasting impression on the person receiving it.
And, just as I have given you some guidelines for purchasing a memorable gift, I'll make it very clear what, in my opinion, you should not do:
Don't give money or gift cards unless the person you're trying to please has openly stated that's what she prefers to buy herself whatever she wants.
When you give these types of gifts, you are saying, "I have no idea what makes you happy, but I need to get out of trouble."
Keep yourself out of this situation as much as you can.
As you can see, giving a thoughtful gift is easier than you might think.
You must definitely put some effort, but keep in mind that worthwhile things take work. However, I bet you that when you see the happiness that you are able to generate in the other person, it will fill your heart with joy.
Courage that with a little will I'm sure you will be able to find the perfect gift for that special person.
