HOW TO SHOP TRENDY GIFTS FOR WOMEN
Gift giving has been practiced for centuries. In Ancient Egypt, the deceased were buried with gifts to prepare them for the afterlife. And in societies worldwide, gifts are exchanged to build relationships and to show gratitude. While there are many helpful gift guides online, finding a suitable gift can become a stressful experience. When searching for trendy gifts for women, keep the recipient in mind, get to know her gifting style and buy her something that she will treasure.
TRENDY GIFTS FOR WOMEN WHO ARE HARD TO BUY FOR
Maybe she works all day and she loves nothing more than to kick up her heels at the end of the day. Her work is inspiring, and so should be her home turf. When she’s alone, she loves to prop her feet up on the coffee table, wrap herself in a soft blanket, and fall deeply into the comfort of her sofa.
When you are thinking about trendy gifts for women, consider how she accents her home. The hand-spun cotton Gabi Ethiopian Throw Blanket and the hand-embroidered Tunisian Throw Pillow are special gifts that are based on traditional design techniques and neutral color palettes.
TRENDY GIFTS FOR WOMEN TO ENTERTAIN WITH
It doesn't even matter how busy the day or week or month has been: she loves to entertain. Friends and family enjoy evenings at her home. She always shares some extra love and care, whether she’s whipping up something good in the kitchen or ordering take-out. Kitchen tools and dining accessories accentuate every gathering at her home.
She’s perfect to gift handmade ceramics to. Large platters and deep bowls in blues and creams are hand glazed to mimic the weave of basketry. Small appetizer plates and dining table accents are hand glazed in Jamaica and infused with Caribbean style and flair.
MODERN LUXURY HANDBAGS AND STATEMENT JEWELRY
Handbags: No matter her outfit, this woman always carries a fashion-forward handbag to tie her whole look together. She loves organizing her bag collection in her home closet and adores wearing each one to special occasions throughout the year. Consider a raffia handbag for the woman on the move who loves to travel. Hand woven in Ghana, these unique bags are colorful, memorable, and made with expert care.
Jewelry: She loves snapping iPhone photos at different occasions she attends. Whether at the kids’ recital, lunch with her friends, or a special night out with her significant other, she knows how to pull an entire look together, any day of the week. Give a gift to accessorize her look. Bold studded earrings are plated in gold, or silver. For the sustainably-minded, consider handmade jewelry that uses upcycled brass and cow horn materials.
Whether you are buying for a mom, girlfriend, wife, grandmother, friend, or coworker, consider these scenarios to narrow down what category of gifts to shop.
