It’s getting close to that time of the year again where all we do is sing Christmas songs, make merry, eat chicken and probably get to watch ‘Home Alone’ again and laugh over it.
2019 Christmas: Most importantly, as the season beckons we are reminded of one of the simplest yet most difficult decisions to make concerning the people we love – gifting. Especially for love birds this can be scary and you might even have hard times sleeping just deciding on what to get that girlfriend the perfect Christmas gift that blows her away.
The situation can be even more worrying for men who might have to deal with getting the money to buy these wonderful gifts or secure great vacations. Well, GHPILOLO have put together a list of eight great gift ideas for you to get your girlfriend this Christmas that might not be so much of a strain on your pocket. And if you don’t like them, just take her on a trip to Hawaii.
Make Her Up
Not make her up in the literal sense. The outcome might end you with a broken heart. Women love their makeup. If your girlfriend is a makeup freak or occasionally likes to put the paintings on, buy her a kit. She would love to put them on every day and the best part of it is that, she remembers you anywhere she goes with your makeup on her face! Even if she has to go on a date with another guy and heart-breaking things like that, she has you on her face. No girl will have a good time with another guy while wearing makeup from another guy (except the really mean ones)
As Simple as a Hair Dryer
You might be spending so much on hair already. I’m quite sure you are having bad Fridays just because you are thinking of how to get her that (little) extra cash to fix her hair. What is worse? She might want you to come with her to the salon. Don’t get it wrong, that can be really romantic and caring but you do not have to miss Saturday EPL for that. No, do not exchange the games for the salon! Simply get a hair dryer. She might probably not enjoy the long queues and fidgeting old ladies at the salon.
Let her do her own little hair work. If there is one thing ladies like to do, it’s washing their own hair or letting their best friends do it for them at home (if you think it’s a lie, ask you little sister how she feels when mama washes her hair and how it feels when salon lady does it). Most ladies in Ghana go to the salon because they don’t have hair dryers and hair washing kits. Get your lady one this 2019 Christmas. Who knows? She might ask you to come over and help her wash her hair.
4 bars (Chocolate) and 1 (good wine)
Well if a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then a way to ladies heart lies in chocolate boxes. Just 4 bars or boxes, depending on how great your pocket is feeling and how much of a eater she is and you remind her little bit of the love you have for her. Just get the chocolates, let the weird psychology of chocolate and love do the rest.
And just add the wine to add some class, chocolates alone might be quite cliché. The two however presents a mood of love, sweetness, class and a lot of other things you will feel when she calls and says “I really love your 4 bars and 1”.
The current wave with ladies wearing sneakers is just awesome. If you love your lady in a pair of sneakers, why don’t you try getting her one? If you have already, get her another. A new pair no go spoil anytin.
2019 Christmas: How about something that reminds her of how beautiful she is every morning without you having to tell her? A portrait painting of her will do just the trick. Get her nicest picture, one that has beautiful memories attached and turn it into a painting. Or just frame it up for her, it works same way. And don’t forget to add a beautiful poetic piece about how beautiful she is and how you truly feel about her. Please do not download a love quote! She might break-up once she finds out an old man wrote that sixty years before two of you were born. Or she might laugh and tease you over it. But it’s better if the words are as sincere as the painting and the memories behind it.
A box for Jewelry
2019 Christmas: All year long you have been getting her necklaces, bracelets, watches, earrings and all of the other ‘blings’. It’s time to keep them for her. She might probably be expecting another jewelry but pulling off a surprising will not be that expensive. Get her a simple yet classy jewelry that she will remind you for. An empty jewelry box might seem quite weird but it doesn’t need to be full to be hearty Christmas gift. Get another inexpensive, beautiful and pearly pair of earrings that has its own box in the box. Just in case she might love the cliché!
Believe it or not she needs it and she will love it. It sounds crazy to gift someone a pillow or two. You wouldn’t even think of getting that for your grandma who has sleeping distress. However, it’s a sure way to stay relevant in her mind even when she sleeps. Let her remember you as the last thing she thinks of before sleeping and the first when she wakes. She will sleep like a love intoxicated baby feeling so close to you with just a pillow, or two.
One thing that Represents her
Just think of a simple thing she loves. One thing that makes her really happy. If she loves her job, get her something that will help her go about it more easier and with much more fun. A beautiful set of aprons if she is a waitress; a beautiful mug if she likes coffee or ‘This way’; waist trainers if she is a model. Anything that represents her and what she loves to do!
2019 Christmas: 8 wonderful gift ideas that will not cost you so much. If these don’t work for you just think of two more things that wasn’t included and get her those things. Otherwise you can take her to Kempinski for a treat or better still go on a tour with her to at Hawaii.
