The challenge here is deciding whether to buy something sexy, or practical. Why? Because most of us women don’t tend to splurge on beautiful sleepwear for ourselves. Love this Satin Silk Sleep Set from the Old Parisian Glamour Collection by Australian Esty seller, Orchard Rose.
Or these whimsical floral sleepwear shorts, also handmade by Orchard Rose.

“A book is a gift you can open again and again.” – Garrison Keillor
You don’t often find books, listed on online gift guides. However I am avid reader, when I have time! So I reckon books are one of the best women’s gift ideas. In Australia, I buy online through Book Depository, as they offer free delivery from the UK.
If the person you are buying for loves reading, go for a recent bestseller. For someone who has less time or interest in reading, try any of these popular non-fiction titles! Who wouldn’t want a night in with Jamie Oliver?

According to SheSpeaks, almost half of the women they surveyed wanted to be given gold jewelry as a gift. I am with them on that one! Simple and elegant to creative and fun, jewellery has to be one of the best women’s gift ideas!
Here are some ideas for women, young or old, who would enjoy pretty, bespoke, handmade jewelry.
Dew & Rose, an Etsy Jewellery store, makes socially conscious hand made jewellery. Like these lovely blush pink and rose gold studs. Bonus, Dew and Rose have earrings to fit young girls to adults.
Alternatively, consider a gift of jewellery that is both personal, uplifting, as well as fun and inspirational. These handmade personalised necklaces come in silver or antique bronze, with the addition of a cute charm. Love that there are so many inspiring quotes and scripture verses to choose from. Bonus pouch is included for gifting.
Equally as gorgeous, are these handmade polymer clay earrings by Clay and Clasp. Know someone who would love a pair of budgies, unicorns or perhaps pet dogs?

Or have a friend who you could see having a box of Weet-bix dangling from their ears? Love these quirky and fun, iconic Aussie themed jewellery by Etsy seller, Cheeky Little Monkeys J. What about jars of Vegemite or Tim Tams? Yes, really!!
6. A Worm Farm

Ok, not everyone would agree that this is one of the best women’s gift ideas! But some women, who are keen on natural living or gardening etc. would want to be given a worm farm. Tiger worms, are great for turning leftover kitchen scraps and paper into vermicast and worm wee. Both, which contain lots of beneficial bacteria and when it’s added to the soil in your garden, it helps everything flourish. Who wouldn’t want a worm farm!
7. Surprise Op Shop Or Thrift Store Items
Some of my friends and I will regularly source gifts for each other from our local thrift store or op shop. Of course, they are a surprise because there is no consistency with what you will find. In the past I’ve been given a brand new pair of Birkenstock sandals, thermal underwear, crockery and an awesome Italian cooking book. In return I’ve gifted clothing, gorgeous wood turned items, books and crockery (like this plate below only 50 cents).
I also use this idea of shopping second hand with my kids at Christmas time, to buy gifts for family members. Most items in a thrift store are low priced and my kids are not overwhelmed by choice. It supports a charity after all and gives the kids practice at thinking about what other people may like!
