Top Gift Ideas – For Her (2013)

Top Gift Ideas – For Her (2013):  Whether you need a gift for your wife, sister, friend, daughter or yourself, here is an ongoing list of gift ideas that will updated on an going basis.  Some of these items are items that have made a huge difference in my personal life, and others are gift ideas for myself that serve as “hints” for the people in my life.  All of the items make great gifts for Mother’s Day, Birthdays, Christmas or Hanukkah, or special occasions.  This gift list leans for towards “practical” gifts for women – meaning that they are likely to actually be used.

1.  For the Woman Who Hates Shaving

Tria Hair Removal Laser (at home)

The Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X is amazing.  My sister and I went in on this device together (split the cost), and we’re on the third round of using it on your lower legs.  It works great (but DO NOT use it before your period…it will hurt).  Some people haven’t had great luck with it, but see if your hair and skin-type are compatible with this.  This product promises to permanently remove your hair (which seems crazy).  I’m skeptical, but I’ve had to shave significantly less often since we started using the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X.  

2.  For the Gal Who Hates Vacuuming
Roomba Robotic Vacuum

It is difficult to adequately express my love for my robotic vacuum.  My Roomba has practically become a member of our family.  These Robotic Vacuums are great for homes with people who have allergies or for people who have toddlers who like to pic up random specs of anything off of your floor and eat it.  See my post on my robot vacuum at Robotic Vacuums and Your Toddler.

3.  For the Energy-Saving Lover
Nest Learning Thermostat

I love our  Nest Learning Thermostat.  If you have an iPhone, then you can change the temperature of your home no matter where you are located.  We were in Arizona, and we changed the temperature from 65 to 72 for our house (located in the Midwest) from the Phoenix airport!  (We wanted to warm our house up before we got home in the middle of the cold Midwest winter).

4.  For the Mom Who Hates Your Remote Control

Logitech Harmony Universal Remote Control
Link: Logitech 915-000162 Harmony 700 Rechargeable Remote with Color Screen (Black)

If there’s a woman in your life that makes death threats to the five different remote controls that operating the  DVR, DVD player, Television, Apple TV, and your Stereo System in your living room, then a Universal Remote Control will make her very happy.  It’s so user-friendly.  There are a variety of  Universal Remote Controls on with great reviews, so you can find one that meets your specific needs.

5.  For the Photo-Taker Without a Good Camera

A New Camera
Link: Canon PowerShot SX50 HS 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 50x Wide-Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom

This camera is on my radar.  I don’t own a camera (I use the one on my iPhone), but I want a middle-of-the-line camera that takes quality photos of my daughter, especially for the photos that we take outdoors this summer.  My iPhone camera isn’t cutting it as far as quality goes.  (Hint, hint – Mr. Mia.)

6.  For the Lady With an iPad

Writing an email from your iPad becomes 100x easier with an iPad Bluetooth Keyboard.  Make sure that you find one that meets your exact iPad generation.  

7.  For The Woman Who Hates Ironing

SteamFast Fabric Steamer
Link: SteamFast Compact Fabric Steamer

I love our  SteamFast Compact Fabric Steamer for nights I want to quickly get wrinkles of our my shirts for the week.  It works on most shirts, and it works GREAT for wrinkled window curtains (you don’t have to take them off of the rod).  I used this a lot for my professional shirts during my MBA program, and I use it a lot for my work shirts and pants.  I just keep it in my bathroom closet, and then hang my shirts from my shower rod and then steam away.

8.  For the Wine Lover

The Mikasa Cheers Balloon Wine Goblet are just really pretty wine glasses.  I got these for my sister for Christmas last year.  She loves them.  

9.  For the Lazy Wine Lover

Electric Wine Bottle Opener

If you drink wine in your house, then an Oster Electric Wine Bottle Opener is a must-have.  It makes opening a bottle of wine the easiest, most seamless process in the world.

10.  For the Gal Who Needs to Relax
Handheld Shower and Showerhead Combo
Link:  Ana Bath 5 Function Handheld Shower and Showerhead Combo Shower System

We had water pressure issues in our old shower-head, and the Ana Bath 5 Function Handheld Shower and Showerhead Combo Shower System not only took care of that, but it is a good-looking, convenient shower-head (love the combo feature).  The hose is long, and the shower stream is perfect.

11.  For Her, Around the House

Velcro Terry Bath Towel Spa Wrap
Link: Betty Dain Terry Spa Wrap 

I love my Betty Dain Terry Spa Wrap towel wrap (with Velcro  because I can keep a towel wrapped around me that actually stays on my body after I get out of the shower.  I use this thing every single day.  

12.  For the Girl With a Pretty Smile

Sonicare Electric Toothbrush
Link:  Philips Sonicare Easy Clean Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush 

The  Philips Sonicare Easy Clean Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush will make your mouth feel the cleanest it has ever felt.  It’s like going to the dentist every single day.  If you slide your tongue across your teeth after  the first few times that you use it, you will be like “Woah!”.

13.  For the Mom Who Loves to Jog

Jogging Stroller
Link:  BOB Sport Utility Jogging Stroller

I didn’t realize how smooth a stroller ride could be until we received the BOB Sport Utility Jogging Stroller  as  gift.  The BOB Sport Utility Jogging Stroller can go over bumps and gravel so smoothly.   When I’m motivated to go for a jog (which, for me, is actually very rarely), then this thing is great.  My more motivated friends with kids, who actually do go jogging, will swear by this.
