Autumn Birthday Gift Suggestions for Ladies

13:19 Pippa Ainsworth 0 Comments

We have a couple of birthdays coming up in the next month or so and I'm a bit lacking in inspiration! I always find it so hard to think of birthday gifts when my thoughts have firmly turned towards... Christmas!

Still my lovely Sister in Law and friend have birthdays on the way so I've been trawling for ideas online and making a couple of sneaky purchases too. I'm not going to show you what we've bought but .hopefully below will give you some ideas if you're searching for gift ideas for ladies in their 30s and 40s. I'm sure some of them will work for Christmas gifts too.

1. Knitwear - Wool Overs are celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year and I've been browsing their range of Chunky Knit Cardigans. They are all made from pure lamsbwool or British wool and even have a  multi-buy option, if you're looking for more than one gift! I really love this belted cardigan, how warm and snuggly would that be for the autumn weather?

It's available in five colours too, I love the red. It's the perfect festive colour to make you smile when out Christmas shopping.

2. Console Games or eBook Vouchers - My friend loves her Nintendo 3DS for her bus commute and is often found playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf or similar so I'll definitely be checking out new 3DS Games for her. I usually browse the supermarket sites like Tesco first and often find some fab bargains! My Sister in Law loves to read so a gift voucher to allow her to add some new titles to her eReader is always a popular gift.

3. Pampering - A spa day is always a great way to spend time with loved ones. Getting away for a bit of pampering, child free is the perfect treat. I love one of our local hotel's spas and was treated to a day there last year. I'm going to give them a call to see if they have any tempting offers on at the moment. A treatment or two, time in the spa pool and lunch would be lovely to relax in the run up to Christmas. If you can't make time to get out for a spa day, why not choose some of their favourite, indulgent products as a gift?

4. Theatre Tickets - If your friend or relative enjoys the theatre then tickets for a show are always a popular gift. Check out what's on in your local town or city and get booking Have an early dinner (there are loads of restaurants with fab pre-theatre bargain menus) and have a girls' night out. You could even fit in a cocktail or two after the show!

5. Her Favourite Things - Sometimes it can be really hard for busy women to get some time for themselves, whether they are busy at work or with their children. I often like to collect a few of their favourite things together in a pretty box or basket to make a really thoughtful gift. The contents will differ for everyone but you could include their favourite chocolates, wine, magazine, a paperback book, their favourite lipstick or hand cream, you can include anything you think they would love. It's sure to be popular, I'd love it if someone did that for me! There are lots of suggestions online to make your basket look lovely,  check out this post from Camp Clem for suggestions.

Hopefully there are some really useful ideas for you here? Do you have any suggestions to add?
