Gifts for the New Year

What to give your wife for the New Year?

New Year is the main fam­i­ly hol­i­day. It is at this time that the hus­band and wife gath­er at the fam­i­ly hearth and dis­cuss all the hard­ships that they man­aged to endure over the past year, as ll as what awaits them in the com­ing year. Also, the New Year hol­i­days are the time to choose a gift for your beloved wife, and there­fore in this arti­cle will talk about what is bet­ter to give your wife for the New Year.

Gift selection principles

Choos­ing a gift for a loved one is always a dif­fi­cult task that must be tak­en seri­ous­ly. Before you decide for your­self which gift would be more appro­pri­ate, you should fig­ure out what cri­te­ria you should focus on.

  • Time. Always approach the choice or pur­chase of a gift in advance, this will allow you to plan pos­si­ble trips, buy tick­ets for excur­sions or movies. Any woman will imme­di­ate­ly notice an unpre­pared or hasti­ly bought gift and is unlike­ly to be hap­py with it.
  • Matu­ri­ty of mar­riage. In many ways, the choice of a gift depends on how much time you spent with your wife togeth­er. If this is a very young mar­riage and each of you is still full of strength and ambi­tion, aspi­ra­tions, then the gift should be not so much use­ful as beau­ti­ful, empha­siz­ing the charm and beau­ty of your wife.

If the mar­riage is mature, that is, you have lived togeth­er for 5–10 years, then you should give pref­er­ence to use­ful and prac­ti­cal gifts that will serve ll in the house­hold.

Hov­er, they should not encour­age your wife to do even more kitchen or house­work — unfor­tu­nate gifts in this case are sets of kitchen uten­sils or house­hold clean­ing items.

  • Hob­bies and inter­ests. If hob­bies and cer­tain hob­bies occu­py almost the main role in the life of your spouse, then you should turn to gifts that will some­how reflect her hob­bies. If your wife prefers out­door activ­i­ties and trav­el, then buy­ing a tour or excur­sion to the moun­tains or a reserve would be a great gift. If the spouse is engaged in needle­work, then there may be some the­mat­ic sets as a gift. If you don’t know what to choose for a cer­tain hob­by, just look it up on the Inter­net, it will sure­ly give you some ideas. In addi­tion, try to fol­low your wife’s hob­bies — she prob­a­bly often dreams out loud about the miss­ing items, tools or appli­ances.

  • Fam­i­ly and friends. If you can’t think of any suit­able gift and can’t remem­ber what your wife would like to receive, don’t hes­i­tate to con­tact her rel­a­tives and friends. They will sure­ly give you some gift ideas that your wife could have dreamed of for a long time. In such con­ver­sa­tions, try not to announce the pur­chase of some­thing spe­cif­ic, oth­er­wise the wife will prob­a­bly find out about it and the whole sur­prise will be ruined.

  • Fam­i­ly rela­tion­ships. A com­fort­able life in mar­riage involves con­stant heart-to-heart con­ver­sa­tions. As a rule, in such con­ver­sa­tions, both the hus­band and wife express their hopes or desires to each oth­er. Most of these wish­es can be real­ized as a gift. Try to lis­ten more often to what your spouse is talk­ing about, and then you are more like­ly to pick up the nec­es­sary present.

  • Rel­e­vance. When choos­ing a gift, pay atten­tion to its rel­e­vance. For exam­ple, you should not give vouch­ers for the sum­mer hol­i­days in the win­ter, such a gift, no doubt, is pleas­ant, but it does not mat­ter at the moment.

Inexpensive Gift Ideas

New Year is still not the most sig­nif­i­cant hol­i­day for a woman, and there­fore a gift can be not so much expen­sive and ele­gant as made from the heart. But this does not mean that the choice of a gift in this case should be treat­ed with dis­dain. On the con­trary, the less sig­nif­i­cant a gift is finan­cial­ly, the more it should mean in terms of prac­ti­cal­i­ty or sin­cer­i­ty. It is worth exam­in­ing exam­ples of such gifts.

  • Tick­ets to the the­ater or to a long-await­ed con­cert. The New Year is still not an indi­vid­ual, but a fam­i­ly hol­i­day, and such an inex­pen­sive gift will be a great start to any roman­tic evening. Try to choose a the­atri­cal pro­duc­tion accord­ing to the prin­ci­ple of what your wife would like.
  • Cup with an unusu­al or themed print also can be a great gift if your spouse can­not do with­out a por­tion of morn­ing cof­fee or evening tea. Some the­mat­ic object, object, favorite char­ac­ter or your joint pho­to can be imprint­ed on the mug.

In any case, the draw­ing should some­how be com­bined with the hob­bies of your spouse or the New Year.

  • Umbrel­la. As a rule, every­one buys almost dis­pos­able cheap umbrel­las, whose spokes break very quick­ly or the mate­r­i­al breaks. That is why a new ele­gant and high-qual­i­ty umbrel­la will come in handy for any woman. You can choose themed New Year’s umbrel­las, which even in win­ter ather will look appro­pri­ate.
  • Flash dri­ve or stor­age card. Suit­able for a busi­ness woman who con­stant­ly works with doc­u­ments and papers. Mod­est flash dri­ves up to 8 giga­bytes are suit­able only for doc­u­ments, but for the future it is still worth buy­ing for 16 or 32.

They are use­ful for down­load­ing new movies, games or pho­tos.

  • Acces­sories. It can be a beau­ti­ful new wal­let, a warm shawl, or even a sim­ple scarf, gloves, hat, coat or jack­et strap. So that these items do not seem too insignif­i­cant indi­vid­u­al­ly, it makes sense to buy sev­er­al items in a set.

  • bathrobe. Such a gift will sure­ly be suc­cess­ful for a woman who likes to relax under a warm shor or in a hot bath. The best option would be ter­ry bathrobes in an unusu­al col­or or with an inter­est­ing pat­tern.

  • func­tion­al note­book, in a spe­cif­ic theme or style. Such books are suit­able for women who have many dai­ly wor­ries and oblig­a­tions.

  • Bud­get set of aro­mat­ic oils. Any woman wants to take a break from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the day and relax, and aro­mather­a­py helps many here. Some of the oils can be used every day on the body as ll.

  • Set of baby clothes or clothes for the expec­tant moth­er will also be a pleas­ant and cute gift. To do this, you should know exact­ly the gen­der of your unborn child, as ll as the needs. Preg­nant women often buy most of the nec­es­sary things in advance on their own.

  • Sets of frank under­ar. The most impor­tant thing in this case is to know the exact para­me­ters of your wife, as ll as her exem­plary tastes in clothes. The ide­al option would be to buy a whole set of erot­ic lin­gerie.

  • Games or enter­tain­ment with sex­u­al over­tones. This includes strip games, joint quests with frank ques­tions and rid­dles.

Top Useful Presents

If your spouse prefers use­ful and prac­ti­cal gifts rather than pleas­ant and sim­ply beau­ti­ful, then here you can pick up a list of suc­cess­ful presents.

  • Elec­tron­ic devices come first on this list. This includes both kitchen uten­sils in the form of blenders, juicers, bak­ing dish­es, microwaves, as ll as prac­ti­cal and every­day ones: a smart­phone, a watch, head­phones, and even a hov­er­board (if your spouse loves bicy­cles, roller skates or a skate­board). A good gift would be home appli­ances. This includes humid­i­fiers, cli­mate sys­tems, air con­di­tion­ers, fans and oth­er devices.
  • Appear­ance items. Almost every young girl spends a lot of mon­ey every month on prod­ucts to care for her skin, face, nails and hair. You will give your wife a great gift if you decide to buy some kind of com­pre­hen­sive body care kit. Try to buy only nat­ur­al prod­ucts from the same com­pa­ny, as prod­ucts from dif­fer­ent man­u­fac­tur­ers may not be com­bined with each oth­er. Per­fume is worth buy­ing only if you know exact­ly the tastes of your wife. Cos­met­ic sets and orga­niz­ers for stor­ing a large num­ber of dif­fer­ent tools will also look great here.
  • Items for home com­fort. This includes sets of beau­ti­ful bed linen, table­cloths, bathrobes, small home fur­ni­ture (chest of drars, bed­side tables, tables, lamps and floor lamps, shelv­ing), inte­ri­or items — paint­ings, shelves, cre­ative wall clocks. Gifts of this type should be select­ed based on the char­ac­ter­is­tics of your inte­ri­or.

  • Cloth­ing and footar. A con­tro­ver­sial gift option for any girl. You will nev­er be able to accu­rate­ly guess the tastes of your spouse and under­stand how a cer­tain ele­ment of cloth­ing looks on her. The same goes for shoes. This gift option would only be appro­pri­ate if your wife has repeat­ed­ly expressed a strong desire to pur­chase some­thing spe­cif­ic.

At the same time, you should know the exact para­me­ters of your spouse, as ll as have a rough idea of ​​​​her every­day style.

  • Com­put­er acces­sories. Suit­able for busi­ness ladies, and those girls who like to spend a long time at the com­put­er. Cool com­put­er head­phones, a lap­top, a new video card or RAM, an SSD dri­ve, an e‑reader, a tablet, a smart home cen­ter, a Por­bank or a portable phone charg­er will look great here.

If your spouse is one of those who in their free time likes to spend out­doors and in nature, then you should buy her an appro­pri­ate gift.

  • Vouch­ers abroad, excur­sions to the moun­tains or the reserve. Noth­ing can be bet­ter for an active and full of strength per­son than a walk in the fresh air among nature untouched by man.
  • Paint­ball, laser tag or oth­er active games ses­sion out­doors (recre­ation cen­ters with quests and enter­tain­ment). These events will require a few more peo­ple, so it’s worth alert­ing a few of your mutu­al friends.
  • Pic­nic in the gaze­bo for two. Such gifts are espe­cial­ly appro­pri­ate in the sum­mer sea­son, and win­ter gives such a joint pas­time a spe­cial charm. Imag­ine how you are sit­ting togeth­er by the fire near a heat­ed and warm house, there is an enthu­si­as­tic win­ter night around, and you look at the fire and under­stand that you have no one more dear than each oth­er.

  • Bowl­ing, bil­liards and oth­er gam­bling-type enter­tain­ment. Suit­able only for girls who are active­ly involved in this in their free time. Oth­er­wise, your spouse may think that you chose this gift for your­self, and not for her.

  • Cours­es in danc­ing, sand paint­ing or embroi­dery. It all depends on the hob­bies of your wife. For every hob­by there is a themed event. Per­haps your wife want­ed to attend a lec­ture by a famous psy­chol­o­gist or lawyer that would take place this com­ing ekend.

  • Intan­gi­ble gifts for relax­ation. This includes gifts in the form of spa vis­its, mas­sages, yoga, aro­mather­a­py or body wraps. To make the gift seem sol­id, you should choose sub­scrip­tions for sev­er­al vis­its.

  • Horse­back rid­ing out­side the city, swim­ming ses­sion with dol­phins, trip to the pet­ting zoo. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion with ani­mals always leaves pleas­ant mem­o­ries.

  • Pho­to ses­sion in nature. Expe­ri­enced pho­tog­ra­phers will sure­ly be able to sug­gest you a beau­ti­ful and pic­turesque place for such an event (even in the win­ter sea­son). This will sure­ly bring you a bunch of pos­i­tive emo­tions and will remain in your mem­o­ry for a long time.

  • Real gifts for the hol­i­days. This includes items and sets that will come in handy on every jour­ney. It can be a func­tion­al bacweack, a fit­ness track­er, a qual­i­ty ther­mos, camp­fire kits, a mul­ti­func­tion­al knife, and even a sleep­ing bag.

Romantic congratulations options

Romance, no mat­ter how old the mar­riage is, must be present in it. That is why roman­tic gifts always remain rel­e­vant. They strength­en rela­tion­ships, bring spous­es to inti­mate top­ics, make them even clos­er to each oth­er. It is worth con­sid­er­ing exam­ples of such gifts and fig­ure out what their advan­tages are.

As you under­stand, romance refers to spend­ing time togeth­er, and there­fore most of these gifts are for two.

  • Joint trip to the skat­ing rink. Ice skat­ing helps to relax, to feel like you are float­ing above the ground. You should choose a time for a ses­sion with a min­i­mum num­ber of peo­ple, that’s when it will be eas­i­er for you to cre­ate a roman­tic atmos­phere. Choose this option only if you clear­ly know that your spouse has expe­ri­ence in skat­ing or roller skat­ing, oth­er­wise most of the “roman­tic evening” will be spent in falls and bruis­es.
  • Launch­ing a paper lantern. It can also be the basis for a more mean­ing­ful gift. The dis­ad­van­tage of this present is that you need to take care of good ather and the absence of strong winds, oth­er­wise your flash­light may sim­ply go out or break.
  • Hike to the plan­e­tar­i­um for a pri­vate ses­sion. The star­ry sky has a calm­ing and relax­ing effect on every­one, and also inspires spir­i­tu­al con­ver­sa­tions and rev­e­la­tions, revives dis­tant mem­o­ries in mem­o­ry.
  • Going to the cin­e­ma togeth­er. The film should be cho­sen calm and not dynam­ic — a roman­tic atmos­phere is not cre­at­ed in sus­pense and antic­i­pa­tion of the denoue­ment of the plot. You should not choose paint­ings with obvi­ous roman­tic over­tones — such a gift will be too banal and your wife is unlike­ly to like it.

Symbolic signs of attention

Some­times finan­cial oppor­tu­ni­ties are lim­it­ed, but still you want to make a good and mean­ing­ful gift. The gift rat­ing below will help you with this prob­lem.

  • Flors. Beau­ti­ful fresh flors will be a great addi­tion to any kind of gift, and a large and beau­ti­ful­ly dec­o­rat­ed bou­quet can be a com­plete gift. Imag­ine your wife’s sur­prise when, right after a movie or plan­e­tar­i­um ses­sion, you sud­den­ly kiss her and give her a bou­quet of flors. Try to pick up not the most beau­ti­ful of them, name­ly those that your wife def­i­nite­ly likes. Flors in pots should not be giv­en, as a rule, this means an addi­tion to the list of house­hold chores (reg­u­lar water­ing, trans­plant­i­ng, chang­ing the land).
  • Roman­tic din­ner in a pleas­ant envi­ron­ment. The best gift for your spouse is that you set the table your­self and dec­o­rate the apart­ment for the New Year. As a rule, most of the house­hold chores dur­ing the New Year hol­i­days fall on the woman. Pre­pare a light din­ner, light a few can­dles, dec­o­rate the apart­ment with gar­lands and Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions, turn on light music. Roman­tic atmos­phere cre­at­ed!
  • As a sou­venir that will stand in one place for a long time and remind you of pleas­ant moments, you can order any dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments with a print. It can be a clock with the image of your whole fam­i­ly, a set of pho­to frames, pil­lows and bed linen with draw­ings of your chil­dren. Here you can not be lim­it­ed in fan­tasies.
  • Sym­bol­ic gifts for the New Year. A con­tro­ver­sial, but sim­ple and inter­est­ing type of present, where you can buy decor items, sets or cloth­ing items with sym­bols of the next year or New Year hol­i­days as gifts. These include scarves, hats, saters and paired mit­tens with snowflakes and rein­deer, ele­ments of win­ter cloth­ing, home sets with a win­ter theme, key rings, jel­ry and fig­urines depict­ing the sym­bol of the next year.

Copyright items

Some­times you want to give some­thing orig­i­nal and spe­cial, which is not made by a machine or some device, but by some­one’s tal­ent­ed hands. In this case, it is worth turn­ing to the work of famous mas­ters. Let’s look at exam­ples of such gifts.

  • Iron prod­ucts. Usu­al­ly in big cities there are work­shops of black­smiths and cast­ers who are engaged in the man­u­fac­ture and smelt­ing of met­al to order. As a gift, any kind of flors, coast­ers, can­dle­sticks, cas­kets, fig­urines, key rings, bracelets and neck­laces, unusu­al rings and tiaras can be made.

Some black­smiths can also set stones and min­er­als into jel­ry.

  • Prod­ucts from pre­cious met­als. This is a much more expen­sive type of gift. You should seek the help of a jel­er so that he can select for you or spe­cial­ly make any jel­ry from your mate­r­i­al. Expe­ri­enced jel­ers are able to restore bro­ken jel­ry — for exam­ple, your wife’s grand­moth­er’s ancient neck­lace, which she cher­ish­es very much. Try to choose only reli­able spe­cial­ists so as not to spoil dam­aged items even more.
  • Jel­ry and dec­o­ra­tions made of glass. Glass tables, clocks, lamps, crock­ery and cut­lery, cos­tume jel­ry — all this can be made by expe­ri­enced glass­blors. Such inte­ri­or items look extreme­ly organ­ic and styl­ish in any apart­ment.

  • Stone­ma­sons, pot­ters and sculp­tors. Each of these mas­ters is able to make an inte­ri­or item to order. Usu­al­ly these are fig­urines, fig­urines, beau­ti­ful author’s crock­ery or cut­lery, coast­ers, frames.

  • Mas­ters in aving from beads or straw. Basi­cal­ly, these are pure­ly dec­o­ra­tive author’s gifts. Their unique­ness lies in the fact that a sig­nif­i­cant amount of time was spent on each such prod­uct. The list of straw items may include wick­er bas­kets, sets of dec­o­ra­tive brooms, wreaths, paint­ings, bast shoes, fig­urines. If talk about bead­work, then this is most often jel­ry (neck­laces, bracelets, hair­pins and brooches), dec­o­ra­tive bead­ed trees, key rings, flors and some fig­urines.

  • Leather­work­ers. Here, as a gift, you can order design­er clutch­es, pass­port cov­ers, hand­bags, straps, bacweacks, coast­ers and table­cloths, leather-trimmed paint­ings, watch­es and oth­er inte­ri­or items.

  • Engravers. Any gift can be per­son­al­ized by engrav­ing the name of your spouse or some wish for her for the New Year. Things on a sol­id basis are bet­ter suit­ed here — fig­urines, frames, rings, bracelets, fur­ni­ture, that is, any objects with a sol­id and sol­id sur­face for engrav­ing.

  • Mas­ters in the pro­duc­tion of nat­ur­al prod­ucts for body care. These include sets of oils, nat­ur­al soaps, creams based on nour­ish­ing herbs, masks.

  • Oth­er mas­ters and spe­cial­ists for the man­u­fac­ture of var­i­ous jel­ry and author’s items. These are usu­al­ly done by indi­vid­ual entre­pre­neurs. Gifts here can be very diverse: from mak­ing dream catch­ers to cre­ative New Year’s fam­i­ly art.

Such a gift will be even more pleas­ant if it is unique, that is, made in a sin­gle copy. You are able to make each of the above items your­self with the right work expe­ri­ence.

Items for hobbies and passions

It is worth­while to under­stand in more detail those gifts that should be giv­en to a spouse based on her inter­ests and hob­bies. As a rule, such gifts are a pri­ori suc­cess­ful, espe­cial­ly if your wife has been dream­ing about them for a long time.

  • Artis­tic hob­bies. If your spouse likes to spend all her free time near the can­vas, then you can think about buy­ing qual­i­ty paints, a set of expen­sive brush­es, a func­tion­al palette, a fold­ing easel, a set of char­coal or pas­tels as a gift. As intan­gi­ble gifts, you can give a tick­et to a gallery vis­it or a mas­ter class by a famous artist in your city.
  • Needle­work. A sewing machine, a large set of high-qual­i­ty threads and nee­dles, hoops, knit­ting nee­dles, and sets of beads can be a great gift here. The advan­tage of such goods is that almost all of them are con­sum­able, and there­fore will always be rel­e­vant for your spouse. Intan­gi­ble gifts here can be the fol­low­ing: a sub­scrip­tion to a mas­ter class in embroi­dery and aving, a trip to the House of Cre­ativ­i­ty to an exhi­bi­tion of hand­i­crafts.
  • Sport. Many girls pre­fer tak­ing care of their own fig­ure to all hob­bies. Here, a fit­ness bracelet, ther­mal under­ar for jog­ging, leg and head pro­tec­tion (if are talk­ing about cycling), a water bot­tle, com­fort­able and breath­able shoes, and good sun­glass­es will be good gifts here. You can also offer your spouse a mem­ber­ship to a gym, a fit­ness cen­ter, or an enroll­ment in a med­i­ta­tion or yoga course.

  • cook­ing. Some of these gifts have already been list­ed above, so only a few will be men­tioned here: a hood, a bar­be­cue, a bar­be­cue, a bread oven, a slow cook­er, a dou­ble boil­er, a waf­fle iron, bak­ing dish­es, a bak­ing sheet, sets of ceram­ic knives. You can order an online course on bak­ing or Ital­ian or French cui­sine for your wife, she will sure­ly be hap­py with such an expe­ri­ence.

  • Books. Such gifts would be appro­pri­ate for ladies who spend most of their time read­ing books. It can be a cre­ative book cov­er, a ll-known work of the spouse’s favorite author, a rare col­lec­tor’s edi­tion that she has long dreamed of.

Also, buy­ing an e‑book will look good here — it’s still bet­ter to car­ry a whole library with you than 2–3 books.

  • crop pro­duc­tion. This applies to those girls and women who devote all their free time to car­ing for flors and flor beds. Sure­ly your wife has long dreamed of hav­ing some expen­sive flor at home — buy it for her, just make sure that he gets home safe and does not freeze in the cold. Sets of col­or­ful design­er pots for plant­i­ng, plant care kits will also look good.


A hand­made gift rarely dis­ap­points. Try to put all your love for the woman you love into the process. It can be a home­made note­book, where on each page there is some kind of entry with an expres­sion of feel­ings towards your spouse or her good qual­i­ties. It can also be a set gift pre­pared and dec­o­rat­ed by you.

Nobody can­celed the era of brave knights and noble maid­ens. If your wife is fond of the work of world writ­ers or poets, then you can try to com­pose some­thing sim­i­lar. It does­n’t have to be a long poem or a poem, but maybe just prose — a piece of text in which you would thank your spouse for the time spent togeth­er. It can be a short sto­ry about the his­to­ry of your acquain­tance or about some fun­ny inci­dent from your life.

If you can play musi­cal instru­ments, com­pose a song or sing a song about your spouse. Such gifts are remem­bered for a long time and are a strong bond of mar­riage.

Make a pre­sen­ta­tion or film about your mar­ried cou­ple. Use old videos and pho­tos from the first days you met. If this does not cause ten­der­ness in your wife, then it will sure­ly fill the whole evening with laugh­ter and joy.

If you are a skilled cook, then it makes sense to cook some­thing unusu­al and excep­tion­al for your wife. It can be an exot­ic dish that you have nev­er cooked before, or some kind of set­ness, from which even a gourmet will sali­vate. Just don’t let your wife try dish­es that you haven’t tried your­self, first you should make sure that what you cook is edi­ble — not over­salt­ed, has a pleas­ant taste and smell.

A thing con­nect­ed by you per­son­al­ly will inde­scrib­ably sur­prise your spouse. Any man can han­dle the cre­ation of an ordi­nary warm scarf or mit­tens. Take a few hours of your time to make things and make sure that your spouse does not notice you doing this.

Such a pop­u­lar item of cloth­ing as a scarf can be sewn from oth­er pieces of cloth­ing that have a mem­o­rable mean­ing for your spouse.
