9 Gift Ideas She Won't Ask For But Will Love

9 Gift Ideas She Won’t Ask For But Will Love

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I received payment to write this post but all opinions are my own. 

Do you have that special lady in your life who does so much for everyone else but never asks for anything in return?
Are you that special lady? I am all about balance, and I know that as go-getters and hard workers often women slip through the cracks and don’t ask for what they want.
I experienced it, “Dia what do you want for Christmas?”
The truth is my most honest answer to this question would probably be, “Sleep” or “Someone to pay some of my bills.” But since I haven’t become friends with Oprah yet I know those are probably off the table. The holidays are a great time to give back, and if you want to tell everyone just to donate to charity in your name, more power to you, but I know a lot of people who would make the donation and still want to get you something tangible.
Or maybe you are just a regular person who knows your kids will get you a spatula or a homemade card and you like the idea of treating yourself to something fun…
Or maybe you aren’t that lovely lady, but you know someone who is, and you want to give her a small show of gratitude. This woman might be your mother (my mom was impossible to shop for growing up, one year she asked for a spatula. This year she upgraded and asked for a kitchen aid mixer…still stuff you use to make things for your family.), it might be your wife, girlfriend, sister, boss, best friend or just the person’s name you drew for the office Secret Santa pool, whoever that lady is I’ve rounded up some great gift ideas from Uncommon Goods to choose from.

Tea To GoTea to Go Infuser Mug
I am a huge tea fan! This infuser travel mug makes it easy to brew coffee on the go. You can add fresh fruit, use tea bags or loose leaf tea. It’s also super cute!

Flavor Fusion Water Bottle

Flavor Fusion Water Bottle
So as I mentioned above I am a huge tea fan, part of the reason I got into tea was that I try to avoid drinking soda. To avoid soda I’ve been opened up to trying all kinds of beverages like kombucha, sparkling waters, teas and you guessed it, infused water. I always find it amazing how much of a difference fruit can make to water. I have always been the type of person who drinks a lot of water, but I always feel like infused water is next level, even if it’s just cucumber or lemons. One thing I like about Uncommon Goods is you get to know a little bit about the product’s creators on some of the products. A teenager created this bottle because he wanted to create an alternative to sugary drinks for satisfying his sweet tooth.
This bottle was designed in a way that promotes long-term use and lowers the risk of second-hand flavor or staining.

Wine Cork Candles

Wine Cork Candles

I will admit I am that single girl with three flower vases full of wine corks, so this is right up my decorating alley. I also think that the candle wax droplets has this sexy dark old-timey Dorian Gray feel to them.
Crimson Heart Umbrella

Crimson Heart Umbrella

This umbrella just too adorable! I feel like it’s something Audrey Hepburn would have used in a movie. It’s flirty and fun. Can’t lie with this I’d probably want to burst into a musical number if I had this umbrella.

Warm or Cool Face Mugs

Warm or Cool Face Mugs
These are so freaking cute, I don’t care how old you are. They remind me of Stonehenge but with snacks lol and in fun colors. I can’t be the only person who has to do a juggling act to trying to get their phone, tea, snacks and whatever else to their couch in one trip. This consolidates two of those things.

Aromatherapy Shower Kit

Aromatherapy Shower Kit
I know a lot of people go to a warm bath for relaxation but can I be honest? Sometimes taking a nice relaxing bath requires work, I have to clean my tub deep prior to taking a bath, make sure my bath pillow is inflated and that the water temperature is hot enough that it will stay warm for a while but not so hot it’s like I’m boiling myself for a big tub sized pot of Dia broth. I have back issues as the result of a bad car accident and a bath never relaxes that upper back the way steaming hot water from the shower head does. This kit allows you to enjoy the calming effect of aromatherapy without the work of a bubble bath.

Hand of Buddha Jewelry Stand

This beautiful handcrafted stand is the perfect place to house your favorite jewelry when you’re not wearing it. This piece is part of Uncommon Good’s Handmade Designs Partnership; the partnership works with locals in India to not only provide a constant source of income for crafters but provide benefits for the communities as well.

Luxury Herbal Booties 

Luxury Herbal Booties

Have you ever had one of those days where you feel like your feet might fall off? Maybe you were showing a visiting friend around all the tourist attractions in your town, perhaps you were visiting every bridal store in the city while your best friend looked for the perfect dress, or maybe you work retail (much love your way), wouldn’t it be great to end that day by treating your feet to some luxury? These Herbal booties are filled with natural herbs that are meant to promote relaxation. They can be heated in the microwave or chilled in the freezer depending on your need. It’s like a mini spa day for your feet!

Which one of these do you think you’d like? What would be a lovely gift for someone to get you, that you wouldn’t get yourself this season? Tell me in the comments.
