When you have a creative wife, girlfriend, mother, sister, daughter or friend, the most popular electronics or the latest trend in clothing simply won’t do. You want to give gifts that celebrate how beautiful, artistic and one-of-a-kind she is. Surprise the creative woman in your life with one of these five gift ideas.
1. One-of-a-Kind Jewelry
Don’t walk to the nearest jewelry store and buy the first shiny thing you see; half the women in the country have access to the bland and typical jewelry you find in pricey jewelry shops. Instead, give her one-of-a-kind jewelry through one of these methods:
- Make it yourself, if you think you have the skill and patience.
- Shop at craft fairs for folksy handmade jewelry at cheap prices.
- For a little bit extra chic, without the high price tags you would at a local jewelry shop, look for online shops with handmade jewelry by French designers. If it’s handmade, chances are there are very few in the world, or it could even be one-of-a-kind. Plus, France is a mecca worldwide for art.
2. Journal, Tablet or Netbook
The creative lady may write poetry or short stories in her free time, and inspiration doesn’t always strike when she’s comfortable at home in front of her computer desk. Give her something portable that will allow her to write wherever inspiration strikes, such as a tablet or netbook. If it’s out of your budget, a beautiful journal will do, so she can take notes and type them later.
3. Art Supplies
If the woman you love has talent for art, let your gifts nurture that talent. Give her blank canvases, paint, brushes, charcoal, sketchbooks, clay or colored pencils. If unsure about what medium she works best in, give her a gift card to an art supplies store.
4. Craft Kits and Materials
If the creative woman in your life can turn yarn into clothing or wire into necklaces, give her materials for her next craft creation. Showing her you appreciate her crafts and can recognize what materials she uses goes a long way when showing her you love her creative side.
But of course, if you think she’d rather do the shopping for materials herself, give her a gift card to her favorite craft store and include it with readymade clothing or jewelry such as Jewels Creator bracelets to give her the hint that you hope she makes some more crafts of her own.
