Best 2019 Christmas Gifts for Her

The Best 2019 Christmas Gifts for Her

We're using the title "Best 2019 Christmas Gifts for Her."  But our gift guide offers plenty of suggestions for birthdays, Hanukkah, or just because.

It can be challenging to come up with something unique. You need something to fall within your price range, a gift she'll love, and it also needs to show thoughtfulness. Yes, everyone loves a good gift card because it won't go to waste. But beautiful gift wrapped packages are part of the holiday experience. A tree filled with ribbon-wrapped boxes is part of the ambiance. A gift card in an envelope just doesn't have the same effect.

So, we hope that these suggestions will at least give you a good running start. Even if you're not jazzed about the exact items, maybe they'll spark some other ideas. If you do like one or more, though, we've got handy links included. So, you can cross an item off of your list in a less than a minute. No need to "shop til you drop!"

Who is "She?"

To make your process easier, we've put some gift options into five different categories. So, pick the one your recipient most closely identifies with and then peruse the options.

We've got you covered with the following:

  1. The Homebody
  2. Fashionista
  3. Beauty Queen
  4. Foodie
  5. World Traveler (or wannabe!)

It's $38 from Shop Bop and appeals to the inner fashionista as well. So, it's actually one of the best Christmas gifts for many aspects of "her."

Amazon for Shipping OR the Gift of Prime

best gifts for 2019, best Christmas gifts 2019, gift guide 2019, 2019 gift guideYou may have noticed that we included a few Amazon gifts in the mix. Our entire family at OTL has been members of the Amazon Prime program for years, and we have definitely reaped the benefit. If you're going to buy even a few items from the giant online seller, you may want to look at a Prime membership. It's $3 for a 30-day Trial. Not too shabby!

Also, we never thought about this one, but an Amazon Prime Gift may not satisfy the box, wrappings, and bow requirement that we love to see under the tree, but it will be appreciated

TIP: If you're looking to spend less than a year of Amazon Prime, you can also buy a gift of just three months. That's three months of free shipping, movies, and more. It's a great deal. But wrap it up in a nice big box with a pretty bow for more impact!
