Christmas shopping is stressful, especially when you have a special someone to buy for. Whether it is a new fling, a long term-relationship or your wife, there is no denying that finding the perfect gift is tough.
Because I am a woman and I know what women want, I’ve put together a couple gift guides that you can use to ensure you are not going to swing and miss.
I’ve also considered the fact that all girls are not alike, which is why I’ve created a guide for a few different types of chicas.
So you’ve landed an artsy girl… a girl whose right [creative] brain overpowers her left [analytical] brain. She’s a dreamer, a doer and a hard one to shop for. This type of girl appreciates gifts with thought – something that you can’t get just anywhere (she won’t settle for a Caesar salad). She prefers Steve McQueen to Alexander and would rather get lost in a book than in a mall.
