Need help, gentlemen? 12 Christmas gifts to impress the women in your life

Want to close the year on a high note with your wife, girlfriend, sister or mother? Here are 12 fabulous choices for a range of budgets that will surely impress.

Christmas gift-shopping for women can be tough for some guys – especially if the recipient has everything she wants or knows exactly what she wants.

It takes a lot of work to get it right, and not everyone can make that effort or spare the time during that final rush to get everything on your festive checklist done.

So gentlemen, when shopping for women, here’s a tip: You might want to rethink your strategy of just grabbing any random Christmas toiletry set from the next beauty store you pass. 

We think it would be a more prudent option to take your pick from these fine gifting options for the women closest to you – be it your wife, girlfriend, sister, mother or BFF.
