How do you choose good Christmas gifts for women?
The key to picking the perfect present for the woman in your life is to figure out what she wants and needs.
If you’re in a rut, take a look at popular items by product category—as defined by viral moments, news coverage, and research. Chances are, she's been eyeing one of these hot products for a while. For example, latte art experienced a surge in light of government-mandated lockdowns. Therefore, you may want to buy her a coffee maker of her own.
Alternatively, you may want to adopt a problem-solution approach. In other words, find solutions to her common, everyday inconveniences. If her bra is uncomfortable, snag a new one for her boudoir. Maybe she's a runner whose hands grow cold during long-distance runs. Or, score her a skincare regimen if she's a beginner eager to start anew.
