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.
Tiny stamped women’s symbol necklaces and bracelets that support Planned Parenthood! If you get her this, 15% of the proceeds from the sale of the jewelry will be donated to help spread the word about women and their rights to reproductive health care! She gets to keep a pretty trinket while donating to a good cause! You can see the details here.
If you have kids, she will love this and won’t even feel the slightest guilt! Have you noticed how much she loves taking photos of the kids? And have you noticed that she never finds the time to have those precious pictures printed out? This will solve that problem! And because moms love documenting our kids’ milestones, anyone who gives her a mobile photo printer is a hero. You can get one here.
Why she will love this? Number 1, it’s aromatherapy. And second?, everybody in the house will benefit from it. You are giving it to her (no doubt she will love it!) but she knows that she won’t be the only one who will enjoy it. Some people are so selfless that they want whatever they have to be enjoyed by everyone! Get it here.

I know you’re looking for gifts for someone who doesn’t want anything but trust me, SHE WILL WANT THIS, especially if she loves cooking.
It looks so simple, yet magical! 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.
“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.

If she loves cooking, then she will love an instant pot. People are raving about them that you can’t go wrong with this one. Plus, she won’t feel guilty because it is not just for her but for the entire family! You can even throw in an instant pot recipe book to make her extra happy!
If material gifts won’t work, why not give her the gift of experience and take her on cruise! You can book an affordable luxury cruise just like this one.
Or just whisk her off to Punta Cana as a surprise. Pack her things in secret and tell her to hop in the car with you for an adventure. She deserves nothing but the best without you spending a fortune!
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.
