how to pick the right gift

In this day and age, a man may not be too sure how to handle gift-giving. You happen to have a few female friends that you want to buy gifts for. You realize that you are not sure what to give someone in this day and age. You don’t want to give them something that might give the wrong impression or have them think that the relationship is more than it is, such as chocolates, flowers or rings. There are fun times when a gift is appropriate: the holidays, a birthday, or just because they are your friend.

Here are a few ideas on what to buy to keep it nice and simple. It’s best to keep things on the inexpensive side when gift-giving to a friend of the opposite sex. 

  1. A Travel Journal

If you have a friend who is a traveler, a travel journal can help them anticipate their next trip. The pages to be filled out include their best memory of the day, the meals they ate, their expenses, what they wore and their reservations for the day. When their trip is over, it will be a real keepsake of their adventures. 

  1. A Gold-Filled Chain With a Charm or Pendant

She will love a simple gold chain that you can attach a pendant or a charm to. The charm could be something she really loves, such as butterflies or a starfish. The choice is yours. You can make this yourself by buying gold-filled chain at Get the length you wish, add the clasps, and put the pendant or charm on. This is a very personal gift that she will love!

Bring the outdoors inside and roast that marshmallow over the electric flameless heater. Delicious goodness ready in no time.

  1. Succulents

A new twist in decorating is the use of succulents in cute pots. You do not have to have a green thumb to keep these alive. They are very hearty. A group of three should do it. They will look cute on a shelf or an end table. 

  1. Clear Glass Impressions Pitcher

A good looking piece that guests will love.

  1. Beautiful Soaps

Get her some beautifully-wrapped soaps in some amazing fragrances. The paper they are wrapped in is so pretty, she won’t want to open the soap. Get about 3 and put in a decorated bag. 

  1. Herb Garden Kit

A simple, passive hydroponic system brings nutrients up to the plants’ roots while regulating moisture—no guesswork. If you know someone that loves to cook, having fresh herbs can make a dish come alive.
