Shopping in Oxford: Last-Minute Gift Ideas for That Special Woman

To all gift-giving guys out there: Look no further. Consider this an olive branch from a girl who is fluent in the love language of gift giving. Christmas arrives in less than two weeks, and whether you just started dating or have been married for more years than you can remember, you might find yourself in a bind when it comes to gifts for “HER.” 
Yeah, maybe you already got her the expensive Michael Kors bag that she so specifically and blatantly texted you the link to so that you’d get her the right one. Or maybe she did what I did and told you, “I want a yoga class pass, so I’ll just sign up, and that can be my gift.” Big gifts are great. But we women always appreciate the gifts that slip our mind. You could call them “extra.” We call them “cute” and “thoughtful,” and they definitely earn you a ton of brownie points. 
You can find great gift ideas, prices included, here. Run down to the Square and find her the crowning jewel of Christmas gifts. Good luck!

Blue Capri Candles
Tall: $36
Small: $20
Candles are always a great gift idea, especially when the jars are as eye-catching as these. There are other brands and styles available, along with plenty of different scents. Gift the scent that reminds you the most of her this season, and be sure to let her know that. She’ll go weak in the knees. Not to mention she can reuse the gorgeous jars for makeup brushes or planting succulents when the candle burns down. 

Hardtail Velour Pullover: $69
Available in multiple colors, this top can be dressed up or down. The material is very soft and comfortable and also lasts after washing and machine drying. This shirt is perfect for any weather. Show your bae that you know how much she appreciates a great go-to piece of clothing. 

So there you go. I hope this helps and that you see that glimmer in her eye on Christmas morning. Christmas isn’t always about the material things, but when an adorable new sweater or piece of jewelry that she might never buy herself is involved, it makes the holidays with the ones you love that much sweeter.
