So you’re wondering how you will ever come up with the perfect gift or gifts for the woman who wants nothing. No worries, I’m going to tell you why some women are like that (there’s a logical reason to it!) and I also have a few suggestions as to what kinds of gifts such women will appreciate so sit back and read til the end.

The thing about practical women like me is that we feel guilty receiving gifts because we always think about the other things that still need to be taken care of and so we say “nothing!” whenever someone asks as what we want.

Let me explain.

Whenever my husband would ask me what I want for Christmas or Valentine’s day, images of bills and more bills would suddenly appear in front of my eyes and this pushes my “wants” away and I tell him not to get me anything.

The same goes for the very altruistic people. When you ask them what they want, they remember the many people who have absolutely nothing thus, they say no.

But I know, I know. You still want to get her something because she truly deserves to be showered with gifts once in a while (ahem, dear husband) and you want to show her that you love her, so I have listed down a few thoughtful and practical (but beautiful!) gifts that any selfless woman will appreciate.

Ever Lane Gift Cards

Gifts for the Woman Who Wants Nothing - Gift Cards

The thing with gift cards is that you are giving her the freedom to get what she really wants. Never mind that she’s probably going to spend it on items not for her but for everyone else. So technically, you are just giving her a budget to shop for the entire family but it’s disguised as a gift for her.

It’s not as complicated as it sounds. Get one here.

This will make it so easy for your favorite cook to rub away the odors from garlic, fish and other strong foods.  She will just need to “wash” her hands with this beautifully contoured stainless steel “soap” bar and water and those powerful scents will disappear. It really works! Get one here.

Pearls of Love Necklace

Gifts for the Woman Who Wants Nothing - Pearls of Love Necklace

With time, patience, and a little help from Mother Nature, a pearl grows into an object of beauty and simplicity. Pearls represent the best in us…something beautiful that comes from within. Wear your necklace as a reminder that you are incredibly loved.”

The words will melt her heart and she will forget about how she told you she didn’t want anything in the first place.

Because a woman needs to know, needs to feel and always needs to be reminded that she is loved. And we love it when you do just that.

  1. I absolutely love this, because I am so like you and usually can never say what I want. Mainly because I do the bills and always think I could use that money for something else that we are going to have to pay for anyways. So totally get this and love your ideas though, especially the printer 😉
