You are not the first and you won't be the last person to need a last-minute gift for the woman in your life. If you're shopping in a hurry and can't find a fitting gift, then here are a few ideas to save the day.
First of all, giving her a gift card doesn't have to be as impersonal as it sounds. Instead of getting the retail or big-name gift cards, though, try shopping for spa service vouchers, restaurant vouchers, manicure/ pedicure vouchers, or even a certificate for a 'couples' trip to a place she's hinted before that she'd like to go to. This will let her know that you understand her, even if your shopping time was limited.
Jewelry shopping is always a good choice for last minute gifts, because there will be a great selection from which to choose. Just remember to keep her personal style in mind rather than just buying whatever's on sale. Dramatic pieces might not be the best shopping ideas for someone who is quiet and enjoys delicate accessories. Make sure to take a peek into her jewelry box or armoire before you set out shopping and you'll get an insight into what kind of jewelry she likes best.
Also, for the girl who has everything, try getting her a charging valet. This is perfect for the girl who loves her cell phone and MP3 player, because it will keep all her belongings in one place and keep the batteries charged at the same time. To add to that, you can go shopping for other accessories that she might enjoy for her phone or music player and present the gifts all together in one package.
Just stop to think about the woman in your life's personal style before shopping and you will save yourself a lot of stress and walking, while still selecting a gift she will love.
