Today of three those writers, WisdomIsMisery, Dr. J and Mr. Spradley share five tips for ensuring your significant has a great Christmas.

1. WisdomIsMisery: I’ve already written about gift ideas for men. Today I will share my secret for how I conquer the daunting task of shopping for women during the holiday season. I have a notoriously bad memory, but I’m a great gift giver. If you follow me on Twitter, then you already know I am never without my phone. I use this to my advantage.

Whenever I’m with a special lady friend, I am always conscious of little comments she makes about gifts she has gotten in the past or would like to get in the future. The longer I know her the better. Throughout the year I plug this information into my phone so that by the time her birthday or Christmas rolls around I have a list of gift ideas to choose from. All of which are unique and tailored to her desires. I’ll usually combine a few related gifts to let her know I’ve been paying attention all year when she thought I was ignoring her.

However, if you’re late to the party, e.g. like most men you waited until December to even think about Christmas, you can still turn the game around. All you have to do is take your significant other to the mall and pay attention. While she is running around trying on outfits and pointing out crap the things she likes in various stores take a mental notes of a few different items and return later to purchase them without her. That way she has told you what she wants without telling you what she wants since we all know women want men to be psychic anyway. She’ll be so surprised she might even cry and will probably let you unwrap her for your thoughtful, sensitive ways.

2. Mr. Spradley: Wis shared a lot of great tips. Me, I follow one rule when it comes to shopping for the holidays: buy guilty pleasures. When I think about Christmas gift giving, I think about that magical feeling I had as a kid opening each present wondering what’s next. The presents that gave me the most joy weren’t the ones that were all thought out and heartwarming, the presents that gave me the most joy were the ones I was going to enjoy the most throughout the year. We spend so much of our time being frugal, penny pinching and trying to be responsible; for me Christmas is the one time of year where you go all out for the people you care about and get them something they’d really love, but would probably never buy themselves.

Now, if you’re going to buy a woman a guilty pleasure, there’s one place you can’t go wrong – in a word: Purses. I’ve been all over the world and I have yet to meet a woman who doesn’t love purses. Purses are to the discerning woman what watches are to the discerning man. Even if your woman isn’t the type who gets all into name brand this and name brand that, I’m quite sure she’ll make an exception for a really good classic purse. If you’re shopping for purses there are a couple that almost every woman loves and every woman wants to have in her collection regardless of her style. I want to highlight those here today. Let’s go.

A: Louis Vuitton Speedy:

Foolproof

The Louis Vuitton Speedy retails around $800.00. A pretty penny for a purse, but it’s the sort of bag that will never go out of style and will always get use. It’s super functional so she can be comfortable wearing it Monday through Thursday for work, and she can wear it Friday through Sunday for play. Even if you have the type of woman who never spends more than $40.00 on a bag she’ll love you and appreciate you if you buy her a Louis Vuitton Speedy. It’s almost a can’t miss. In the picture you see the various colors it comes in, if you have a woman that’s not into name brands, go with one of the solid colors – of those, my favorite is the black. If she doesn’t mind a brand print here or there, my personal favorite of them all is the Damier print directly in the center

B. Chanel Clutch

Can't Miss

We’re not going to talk about price when it comes to this bag because that would be a bit uncivilized. Here’s all you need to know about the Chanel Clutch: She will have it forever. A classic Chanel Clutch is the sort of thing a mother will give to her daughter when she’s old an no longer has any use for it. It’s the sort of bag that is inter-generational. I know if you go google the price of it y’all are going to come back and tell me I’m crazy – but – hey if you love the woman, why not get her something that will last a lifetime. In terms of usage, like the LV Speedy referenced above, it’s super functional and multi-purpose. In the picture on the side you see the ever-stylish Rihanna rocking one extra casual with a pair of harem pants, but it can also be worn with the most elegant evening dress your woman has in her closet. It’s expensive, I know, but you really can’t go wrong with a classic Chanel Clutch.

 

3. Dr. J: Please let my contributions to this list, include:

To all the fellas out there with ladies to impress, it’s easy to do just follow these steps:
1. Cut a hole in a box
2. Put your junk in that box
3. Make her open the box, and that’s the way you do it!

4. Mr. Spradley: Hard to top a d*** in a box (see what I did there) so I’m just gonna go head and move on to my next suggestion. A lot of you all may not quite be at the point of buying your woman expensive purses. Maybe that’s just not how she rolls in terms of fashion and style or maybe y’all haven’t yet reached the point in your relationship where you’re spending that kind of dough on each other. If that’s you, and if you’re trying to stay anywhere from $50.00 to $500 range, then I would suggest you get her a few smaller presents that combine both the thoughtfulness of WIS’ sentiments above, and my guilty pleasure theory.  With these suggestions, you just start with one and keep adding on till you feel like you’ve got enough stuff to make her Christmas special.

Start with perfume. Most women have a favorite scent and most women happen to be running out of it right around Christmas time. Nothing says I love you – so much so that I notice the way you smell – like buying her a bottle of her favorite perfume. It’s easy, relatively inexpensive, very useful, and thoughtful at the same time.

Gift certificates to wherever she gets her monthly maintenance done. This is the rare exception where buying a gift certificate is totally acceptable. You notice how your woman always looks ravishing right? Her eyebrows are always plucked, her hair is always done, she keeps a fresh mani-pedi and the lawn is always mowed. All that takes effort and money and most women go to different places to get all of this stuff done. One extremely thoughtful and inexpensive gift idea (that goes great with her favorite bottle of perfume) is to just go around to all the places your woman has to go each month and buy her gift certificates those places. All told it’ll probably run you anywhere from $100.00 to $500.00 depending on how high maintenance your woman is. The best part about it is, you can stop when you feel like you’ve reached your budget limit. It’s an easy gift and she’ll love you for it. If you don’t know the places, just ask her best friend or sister as women usually share this sort of information with each other.

Ok… enough giving away all my secrets. You ninjas is on your own from here.

See, everyone wins!

Those are our tips. What are some memorable gifts men/women have gotten you over the years? Do you prefer a thoughtful gift like WIS suggests for a guilty pleasure as Most suggests. Have any tips you would like to share so the men and women can make that special someone in their lives happy for 24 hours this Christmas? Ladies, how ’bout y’all just tell us what you want. Share what you’re hoping your boo gets you for Christmas.

Lastly, the time is finally here: Next Friday – Holiday Happy Hour at the Empire Room in the Empire State Building from 6-10pm. Be there or be square! (Always wanted to say that.)

Comment(90)

  1. I usually break up with them around this time anyways *Ice Cube voice*

    I got my girl a Kindle Fire(that i won at a holiday party raffle) , she hinted at an ipad but we not that deep *shrug of Yeezy*. From there i’m going wit the thoughtful pupu platter of gifts perfume set, earrings, a shirt or suttin (i gotta make my last mall run later). As for who i side with on the post, i myself love gifts i wouldnt typically buy myself so thats the route i’d go.

  2. The most memorable gift my hubs has gotten me happens to be the most thoughtful too. It was an antique glass cherry blossom. It’s something like one my grandma has and I used to go on an had on about how much I loved her’s and no

    This year I got everything I wanted. I went to victoriassecret.com and filled up a shopping bag and he bought everything but the booties and two things that sold out. Also a rachel roy bird ring and yoga classes.

    For him, I got a watch and a video game. He’s been saying for months that he wanted a watch and he told me he wanted the game. I just listened to what he says he wanted.

    I used to get things that he’s said he’s always wanted but that’s a bust because he never uses them.

    1. That’s supposed to say “It’s something like one my grandma has and I used to go on and on about how much I loved her’s and now I have my own.”

  3. I appreciate you specifically naming a brand and style of purse. Given that different women have different tastes, it is difficult to shop for a purse as a gift. So specifically saying, "Louis Vuitton Speedy" helps.

    Now keeping true to my comments in WIM's post, my broke arse ain't spending no $800 dollars on a purse!

      1. For the record, if a man spends hundreds of dollars on a purse and gives it to me, I would take it back and put it toward a trip to the beach. Possibly without him, cause, well I think expensive purses are stupid. Same thing for perfume. I am particular about smells. If I want it, I have it. I don’t need more than two. Um, I can pay for my own mani pedi, thanks. How about some romantic quality time? A night in a fancy hotel with room service breakfast. Phones off.

        1. See, I would never date someone like you, so its all good. I’m kinda like WIM, experiences > things. Especially if you are talking about intimate quality time vs. overpriced leather.

        2. I think you and I knew from the first time we'd ever read each others work here in the blogosphere that we'd never work… but we can still be cool tho! No hard feelings.

          But that said… intimate quality time and overpriced leather aren't mutually exclusive. Any woman I'm with gets both – or whatever guilty pleasure my knowledge of her told me she'd enjoy besides the prerequisite intimate, quality, romantic time.

        3. Come on WC. Don't put words in my mouth. She doesn't need my permission to do anything… I challenge you to find me ever saying I hold her to a different standard than I hold myself to or she holds me to. I kinda feel some kinda way about you insinuating that but whatever homey… happy holidays.

        4. Bah Humbug to your ideas!

          No matter how much you dislike something someone gets you, regardless of how cheap or expensive it is, returning it and putting the money toward something else is rude, ungrateful and flat out tacky.

          i feel like that stuff you suggested is super basic. Already take two vacations a year and a few weekend trips in between them. A dinner and a nice night in a fancy hotel is like something you do on a random tuesday. That's not even a gift. That's just a romantic evening.

      2. Louis Vuitton and Chanel never go on sale. Ever. I don't mean never as in rarely, I mean never as in – it's a fact of their brands. If you see Louis or Chanel on sale it's fake.

        1. Not true.. You just need a hook up. A friend of mine is a Exec Assistant at LVs Coroporate office and she usually lets us know when they are doing 6-8am kind of sample sale. Since I'm not a purse kind of girl I'm not sure how it works but I think my other friends give her the money and she buys them at the sale price. *shrug*

        2. They don't go on sale but there are site like ideeli, shopforme, hauteshop where you can but name brad items for a discount usually on a one-day deal because the money is made for buying in bulk all at once (like living social).
          The coach clutches were sold in 20mins even at 1400 a pop (discounted by 800$). So that's something to think about. You can sign up for emails. I set up a separate account for those type of deals, but you can buy name brands for less. Right now they have some lovely Hermes scarves… *sigh*
          My recent post Good Morning

  4. I'm not much of an LV fan (or any bad that has logo-gasms or logo-vomit all over the bag) But… seriously… if you get me that Chanel clutch, #wegotogetherforever. It's my DREAM to own a Chanel bag. When I hit it big, that will be my FIRST splurge.

    And Dr. J wins for quoting the classic D**k in a Box Christmas favorite! LOL

    Oh, and to answer the question… all I want for Christmas is you. Not, not you… you. *sweet smile*

    1. What I love about the speedy is that the name is very subtle compared to brands that have their name in super fonts (coach for instance). You know its LV by design and/or if you walk up on it…or you can get the plain joint.

      HOWEVER, in light of what Starita said yesterday, "I'd like that money for two of my car payments instead. Or, I can knock a G off this student loan. Or, pay my rent for a month…that would be nice! Please and thank you!" LOL…

      1. Amen, all I was thinking when he said "foolproof" and "can't miss" is um…#False – though I'd of course be pleased that he gave me something, I'd wonder who he'd been dating all this time and if she got my plane tickets to Vegas and I got her purse, cause that purse ain't me. But I'm not a rapper New Yorker…ya'll do things differently – I'm sure a large majority of women would love to get that bag and his principle of buy her what she wants but is too practical to buy herself still applies. Still solid advice at the end of the day.

        1. I agree with Star. I guess us simple, small town country folk can't relate to y'all with your worldly, material posessions. *chews wheat straw and tips cowboy hat*

          Nah, but seriously, I don't have issues with women folk out here IRL. And my "preferences" have never been a problem in Texas or now in Colorado. No stereotype.

          It's all good. If yall like it, I love it….

          My recent post Video Blog: Heartbreak and Lucky Charms

    2. "It's my DREAM to own a Chanel bag. When I hit it big, that will be my FIRST splurge. "

      Cheekie is this one of these things that you really want to buy for yourself? – Like you don't even want somebody to get it for you? (Like Samantha on SATC with that diamond rose ring?!) I have an item like that…
      My recent post Christmas in New York City?

      1. Nah, I'd take it any way I could get it. But, to be perfectly honest, I'd feel something special if I earned it myself. Like with anything, actually. But, yeah, I'd be JUST as happy if my hypothetical dude did this… and it was reasonable for him to do so. He'd get Chanel chex, definitely. lmao

  5. *drools over A*

    I'm about to move in a few months…so xmas extras have been canceled, lol. I did get my kids some needed updates to their wardrobe, they'll get one of those Just Dance joints for the wii, I'm getting my sweet g-ma who's coming to town for xmas a gift card for her 74th bday that just passed, and…um…that's it. The bf just had a birthday and he was spoiled to the utmost. He in turn spoiled me for being so fabulous (got a gift for giving a great gift…how cool is that?!). So, we agreed that we've spent enough money on gifts for each other in 2011.

    Besides, y'all know full well this xmas gift stuff (to the degree we do it) is a marketing swindle, LOL! Take the red pill and save yourselves a lot of money…

      1. Chill B. I don't care how much or how little the Mrs and I get each other during the year… we still giving gifts on Christmas. It's the most.wonderful.time … of the year.

        Plus we're so old now, if we don't get each other gifts for chistmas, we won't getting any gifts for christmas at all.

        I believe in santa, and I believe in gift giving at christmas.

        1. I mean…that's also real. My family hasn't really full-out done Christmas in a long time (for personal reasons, not tryna get all sad out here on the interwebs), so the gift-giving and all that doesn't excite me the way it did when I was younger. If/when I get married, I'm sure I'll be more convicted to splurge around the holidays and give because thats most of the beauty of xmas. But for people fresh out of college and just starting to make real world money (or for people who already know they ain't got it), choosing not to exchange gifts or making home made gifts can be a gift in itself if it alleviates the stress of stretching out money thats not there.

        2. You and the Mrs with your sharing bills, no kids having selves can make it rain on each other all y'all want for xmas, lol…

          You still believe in Santa?? JC would NOT approve, lol.

          There's nothing wrong with giving gifts at xmas if you have it to do. This year, its just more important for me to upgrade my environment…so that's where all the extra $$ is going.

        3. i believe in Santa…

          now to be fair, i know that a jolly fat guy doesn't fit in my chimmney, but i believe in the act of being selfless in bringing joy in the form of gifts…to brighten up another person's day…

          that doesn't supercede my belief in the reason for the season, but it's secondary, a compliment to the reason that i've learned to appreciate over the years.

          but…that's just me.

  6. Can't go wrong with purses. Don't forget to add Coach and Dooney & Bourke to the list for purses. If you have a Coach outlet in your area, you can buy her at least 2 purses for the price of one. Take off the ticket, she'll never know you didn't pay full price for it. 🙂

    I don't know a woman who doesn't like Bath & Body Works. I prefer a gift card from there so I can stock up at the semi-annual sale right after Christmas…more product for my buck and its fun when its someone elses buck 🙂

    Perfume gift sets–for sure…but make sure its a fragrance I wear or one that you would love for me to wear. Random perfumes that I wouldn't wear will be exchanged.

    Gift certificates to my favorite stores is always good too.
    My recent post Why eBooks Don’t Have to be the Death of Print by Guest Blogger

    1. Hey Shelia! Appreciate the suggestions.

      I gotta say something about this Coach/DB situation though. If your woman is between the ages of 25 and 35 and lives in a metropolitan area like New York, DC or LA, I really can't co-sign getting her a Coach Bag or a Dooney and Bourke Bag for Christmas.

      To put this into language that guys would understand, buying a Coach bag or a Dooney and Bourke bag for your woman for Christmas would be like if you wanted the Concorde 11's and your woman bought you some Fusions.

      Nothing says Auntie Swag like a Coach Bag.

      The bath and body works gift card is a great look though. But if you're going to get that, and you and the woman are in a serious long term relationship, you might have to supplement it with some other stuff to round out the gift.

      Great suggestions though!

    2. I don't know any grown woman that would be okay w/ a dude hitting w/ her the 3 for $25 package from B&BW…but to each his own I suppose

      And Most is def right about the Coach/D&B bag thing…after teaching in Philly and living in NY and Jersey, I've seen high schools and college freshmen w/ the smaller Coach bags and clutches…so again, buying that for a grown woman is a no dice

  7. "Hard to top a d*** in a box (see what I did there) so I’m just gonna go head and move on to my next suggestion."

    LOL! Well played sir. Nicely done.

  8. First my real answer: All I want for Christmas is to go home. Yep, some emo shyt. You wanna turn it into a gift? Buy me a ticket home.

    Anyway, as for receiving a gift from a man: "It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries." * <—- TRUTH. Therefore:

    1. BOOKS. I know it seems hard to pick a book… especially for someone who has a large collection already… but if she's serious… she should have an amazon wish list of books just waiting for you to choose from. If you wanna be more thoughtful? Skim my wish list and then go pick a few that aren't even on the list but that you think I might like based on what *is* on the list. Even if I already have them? #swoon cuz I'ma think you "get me." If you wanna take it over the top? Buy me a first edition autographed copy of a book from my favorite author.

    2. PANTIES. Women can never have enough of them. And I'd prefer several mid-price-range pairs than one La Perla-esque pair, but that might just be me. And no, not a gift card to go buy some, but YOU actually pick me out some!!! Go in the panty drawer (if you know her like that) or just look at whatever she takes off next time to see what size and brands if you don't already know.

    *From here: http://nonamerah.wordpress.com/2011/10/03/869/
    My recent post Christmas in New York City?

    1. Panties are a great idea! He gets to pick what he likes and you get to wear them for him! And panties are expensive for their purposes, so it'd be nice for him to supplement this cost for December 🙂 And if you're a sap like me you'd think of opening up these panties and what ya'll did when you first modeled them for him every time you wore them and he would get residual @ss off that one gift all year…

      Suggestion approved!

  9. Nice collabo fellas. I love WIMs idea though. If he were to pick out something for me that I casually mentioned in March?! It is going DOWN. Period.

  10. Do you prefer a thoughtful gift like WIS suggests for a guilty pleasure as Most suggests? <– No preference, both ways of thinking would make me happy, just in different ways #GeminiSwag

    I don't think anybody has mentioned jewelry yet, but jewelry for Christmas >>> and it doesnt have to be anything over the top (although, we've talked about Chanel bags, so anything is game I guess). Juicy Couture charm bracelets are thoughtful and cute, especially if you pick the charms yourself. I don't wear mine everyday, but it puts a smile on my face whenever I see it in my jewelry box. Pearl earrings and necklaces can be found for great prices around this time of wear and are classic. And if you want to go the thoughtful route, custom make me something from Things Remembered please.

    1. I don't love the look of a charm bracelet but he would get points times infinity for hand selecting each charm and telling me why and I'd be one charm bracelet wearing fool! It's about the thought. No, for real…

    2. I only want jewelry if I ask for something specific. Otherwise it just seems like you were in the store and said heck I don’t know what to get her, I can’t fail with jewelry. Pffft. That is a fail for me.

  11. I just can't with Dr. J…

    and Fellas, I just want to let you know. A classic leather staple can be purchased for under $500… try Coach and Fossil (that's if you have a woman that's not into "name" brands and just likes quality pieces*

    I'm not that type of chick, but it's something about a little blue box and makes women swoon… and in case you need help, the blue box is from Tiffany and Co.

  12. It may be a little late now but a good gift Idea is getting her a personalized gift. If your pockets aren't that deep you can keep a fairly cheap item and adding some engraving on it makes a big difference. Notice she always has a blanket or throw when you guys are snuggled up on the couch watching TV? Buy her a Throw and have it engraved with some sappy stuff. You could include it with a bunch of other stuff you get. http://www.ThingsRemembered.com has some good personalized items.

  13. Shopping for women is so tough, because you kinda have to think ahead to what you'll buy her for Valentine's Day and try not to make both gifts be the same thing. I've always been a big fan of a gift w/ a hefty price tag for Christmas and then something more personalized for v-day

    The purse actually gave me good idea though. I already bought my girlfriend the iPad2 (she bought me 1 for my b-day) and some games for her Wii

    What do you fellas think about buying your lady shoes for Christmas?
    My recent post Kris Humphries Makes A Great Fit for LA

    1. I think you and I are on the same page. Valentine's day I usually do a smaller more thoughtful gift combined with a 3 or 4 day trip somewhere.

      In terms of shoes… what I would suggest is you do a whole collection. I did that one year and the Mrs. Loved it. She's fancy sometimes, but most of the time she's every down to earth in her attire. So instead of buying one really expensive pair of shoes, I bought her like 8 or 9 pairs of shoes in the $100-$200 range. It went over really well. I think she liked it alot more than if I would have bought her one pair of Lou-B's or Choo's

  14. So I havent celebrated Christmas with my family since I was 8-9, which strangely has nullified the tradition for me. I'm not always sure how to respond to gift giving (aside from thank you), but I'm huge on giving gifts.
    In response to WIM: I like sincere, thoughtful gifts. Things that have some type of long-term functionality: cooking utensils to improve kitchen efficiency, or a really good book.

    For Streetz: I like the practicality of the gifts. I would add a AAA membership, year-long car maintenance (tune-ups, oil changes), a basic mechanic course, or even something you can to together (photography, painting, crafts, cooking, dance classes).

    For Most: I would add scarves, gloves, and watches. I've always wanted lined leather gloves in camel, a Hermes scarf (so classic/timeless), or a movado watch.

    My recent post Good Morning

    1. I gotcha…

      Can totally understand what it's like to not be able to spend christmas with the people you spent it with growing up. That's my life in a nutshell too.

      Still though, I do my best to make the most of the holiday season, in my own way. For me that means giving great gifts.I just love the look on the face of someone who loves whatever I've gotten them – especially the Mrs.

      But I totally hear what you and a few others are saying. I think part of getting someone something, even if it's a guilty pleasure is knowing your woman well enough to know what her guilty pleasures are.

      For some it's a trip she wouldn't take otherwise. For others it's a day at the spa, for some it's gadgets and such, and still for some it's high-end luxury items.

      To each their own…

  15. Oh Mr. Spradley!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I'm sorry fellas, but he hit it on the nail with the gift idea!! An ex boyfriend of mine did the same thing and this still goes down in the hall of fame of best gifts- right under my puppy!!
    It's just a win-win for everyone: you already know she'll use the gift, she'll love and it's thoughtful.
    And if you're girl doesn't go places that are too expensive, you can always pay for two trips!

  16. I know you don't love me, I know you don't love me
    You ain't the same whenever Sprads around
    I know you don't love me, I know you don't love me
    You scream and holler whenever WIM's in town
    I know you don't love me, I know you don't love me
    See Slim put me up on how the hoes get down
    I know you like EBM and that RCLS sh*t
    Try to run game on me you punk b*tch
    I know you don't love me

    I gets only a couple ounces of love today… and I love both of you who commended me on my efforts!

    1. I love you Dr. J!
      But ay I can’t help but imagine that if I opened that box, all I’d think is this thing looks used…

        1. I’ll check out that carfax.
          *picks a piece of lint off it*
          I’m sure it’ll look better after a spitshine.

  17. I have to go with WIM on this one. The best Christmas present I received was the “Martin” series on DVD. I remember telling my bf, “If u find all of the Martin episodes on DVD I’ll love you forever!” Now this was before his show had been released on DVD. So on Christmas morning I open a big package and there are ALL the episodes but when we went to watch them, someone had recorded all of them off a television in horrible quality. He was so upset and so was I b/c he had paid almost $200 for them. He begged me to keep them but I later called the company and demanded they give him his money back. (When he got the refund he bought me some shoes) He was disappointed and felt that he had let me down but the fact that he went out of his way to find them for me was enough. Even though he had bought me many other expensive gifts, I put it on his ass so good Christmas morning just off the strength of those bootleg Martin DVDs 🙂

  18. I have to go with WIM on this one. The best Christmas present I received was the "Martin" series on DVD. I remember telling my bf, "If u find all of the Martin episodes on DVD I'll love you forever!" Now this was before his show had been released on DVD.
