Thoughtful Items for the Amazing Women in Your Life
Looking for a thoughtful gift for the amazing women in your life? I get it. It can be so hard to buy for the women in our lives who do so much for us– the mothers who take care of us, the care providers that care for our children, the friends that keep us going. We want to express our love through the perfect, thoughtful gift this holiday season.
But, you're busy. And you have a lot going on and you may or may not have forgotten to send lunch with your preschooler again this week (ahem). So take a leisurely perusal through these thoughtful items for the amazing women in your life to find a gift that is meaningful and easy to find.
We love to share favorite products with our audience. We want you to know that we may benefit from purchases made using any affiliate links below.
For the woman who's always cold
It's a hug and a blanket all in one and what's not to love about that? The Big Hug Lap Blanket lets you write messages, silly notes, prayers, and uplifting quotes on the six starter tags included with the blanket so your loved one can cuddle up with reminders of how much they mean to you.
For the woman who likes her coffee piping hot
This might be the coolest gift I've ever seen and while I can't say that I would spend the money on myself (classic mom move, right?), chances are you'd probably be willing to spend it on someone you love. The Ember comes in a tall travel mug or a cozy classic style and it heats your coffee and keeps it warm. No more cold coffee!
For the woman who loves tea
Not all moms are coffee lovers, I know. I don't understand it, but I am aware of it. (Kidding, I love tea, too!) Tea is one of those fool-proof gifts, so to amp up the thoughtfulness factor, you can wow with a personalized blend just for them. Cool, right? But hurry–if you want this gift, you have to order fast.
For the woman who has experienced loss
I founded this product after having two miscarriages and it's near and dear to my heart. All items in the box are from a loss mom and each item is tied to a meaningful part of that mom's story. The Stay Strong Mom box is about showing each other that true strength is not found in trying to face hardships alone, but in sharing our sorrow and our struggles together.
The mug was designed by my daughter the day I miscarried as her gift to me (she had no idea I was even pregnant!), the coffee comes courtesy of a strong couple who lost two babies after birth, the cookie is from a mother who lost a baby almost full-term into her pregnancy, and the jewelry dish is from a woman who used the art form to heal after miscarriage and is now expecting a rainbow baby. The Stay Strong Mom box can also be the perfect gift for any mom going through a hard time in her life. 100% of the proceeds go to helping moms pay their bills after infant or pregnancy loss.
For the woman experiencing infertility
If there is a woman in your life experiencing infertility or secondary infertility, Lullaby of Hope makes beautiful loss boxes, as well as infertility boxes so you can gift someone in your life in a thoughtful way to let them know you are thinking of their journey. Their infertility box includes tea, scripture cards, a candle, a pearl bracelet, and a keychain.
For the woman with big dreams
Straight from the bestselling author of “Girl, Wash Your Face” herself comes the “Start Today” journal by Rachel Hollis. Her journal is based on the simple premise that in order to reach your dreams, you have to do two simple things: 1) write your dreams down and 2) practice gratitude for what you already have in your life. Sometimes the simplest things are also the hardest, right?
For the woman who is darn proud of breastfeeding
And as she should be, right? This might be a little “out there,” but after reading stories of moms who had friends sneak away some of their frozen breast milk and surprise them with a necklace made out of it, I'm convinced it can be a really thoughtful gift. I've also heard of moms who lost children who had friends turn their breast milk into jewelry in their honor and it's such a beautiful gesture.
For the woman who just needs some flowers in her life
You've heard of subscription boxes, now get ready for … subscription flowers! The Aurora Rose Flower Farm in Caro, MI offers a “Bouquet of the Month” club so you can gift a woman in your life with monthly flower deliveries. And I don't care what anyone says, fresh flowers are life-giving and can brighten anyone's spirits, especially in the cold, harsh months of winter. The Aurora Farm delivers to Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana currently and you can request an order form through their Facebook page.
