Does the woman you’re shopping for carry her life in a bag? Show her you care by treating her to a new one. Again, keep in mind her personal style and ask yourself if she has a favorite color.

You can tease her by wrapping up an air freshener or keychain.
10 – A Trip of Their Dreams
Is there a place the lady you’re gifting for has always wanted to go, but never booked the trip herself? Be the person to make her wanderlust dreams come true.
