For some reason, many guys find it difficult to find good Christmas gifts for girlfriends. You might hear ideas all year long, but when the holidays draw near everything you swore you would remember seems to have leaked out of your brain. One great place to start when you are in a tight spot, as far as Christmas presents for your girlfriend go, is with the stocking; stocking stuffers, traditionally, are economically priced gifts that are both practical and show that you care.
Stockings are the ideal place to put gifts that show even though you might have forgotten that she had hinted at wanting a specific purse for the holidays, you still care about her well being. Here's a hint: Beauty salon gift certificates always work when it comes to your girlfriend. Girls like to be spoiled, and a day or an afternoon at a beauty salon will generally leave them feeling like royalty; moreover, a visit to the salon usually proves to be quite a relaxing experience, so including a gift certificate in her stocking will definitely give the impression that you have a deep understanding of her unspoken needs.
But, just what kind of spa gift certificate is right for your girlfriend? Well, the answer to that question lies in several criteria. For example, if you live in Vancouver, a gift certificate for a day spa in Toronto won't do her much good. Keep your search refined to cities that are close to you and have a day spa. Boston, for example, has several day spas that are reachable for anyone within an hour drive. Or, if you really want to be creative, you can plan a whole trip around the day spa of your choice; let her open the day spa gift certificate first, and save the airline tickets to Boston for the big present.
So, if you can't decide what to get your girlfriend for Christmas, start out with her stocking. You never know what kind of ideas you will end up with.
