What To Get Your Wife For Christmas

She’s the one that tirelessly gives to all. She never complains and deserves something nice. Sometimes the people closest to us are the hardest ones to shop for. It can be hard to express the depth of your feelings and gratitude for your wife. A new set of pots and pans doesn’t exactly say, “honey, you hung the moon and the stars, I love you.” But what does? Finding the perfect Christmas gift for your wife is no easy task, but finding the perfect gift is worth it. Old World Christmas is here to help. We’ve already set you in the right direction with gift guides for the hard-to-shop-for teen, mom and dad, and we’ve already filled the wives in on what to get for you, so let us guide you through some ideas, hopefully sparking an idea for the one you love the most. 

Moto Mama

Maybe she’s hard to shop for because she doesn’t always fit into the “typical” gifts-for-wife category. Is she more comfortable on a motorcycle or dirt bike than she is in a car? Does any of her gear need to be updated, refreshed or expanded upon? We think these cool riding jeans would be a versatile addition to a riding wardrobe. If a track or trails are more her jam, a new riding set or new pair of the latest boots could be an exciting gift. If your wife is a Moto gal, we also recommend a dirt bike or motorcycle ornament (and if she’s a huge Santa fan, this ornament might take the cake).

Hygge Honey

If moto isn’t her thing, maybe being cozy at home is. In Sweden, “hygge” (pronounced hoo-ge) is the state of coziness and warmth at home with friends. A hygge kit might increase her cozy quotient and make her happy. We have some ideas. First off, she’ll need a blanket or two. We love this simple, and go-with-everything design or the classic, and infinitely warm, Pendleton blankets. Here’s one everyone loves, but there are many more to choose from. Once she’s set with blankets, now to the fire. Hopefully she has a wood-burning fireplace (it ups the hygge points). If so, she’ll need this twill log carrier to haul in the firewood. If not, no worries. Candles are a staple of hygge. But don’t just get any candles. Get something special for your wife for Christmas. She can buy her own candles from the stores she frequently shops at. For the next level, check out the ultimate in candles. Once you’re on a roll, might as well go big and finish her hygge collection with a pair of slippers. We love these and these. The finishing touch to her hygge collection could be the Dala horse ornament or the holiday hearth ornament.

Bahama Mama

But, maybe your home is tropical and hygge sounds too hot. No worries. We love tropical too. Does she need a paddle board? Probably. The relaxing, yet balance-challenging stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) is a fun one with a lot of variety within it—paddle yoga? Racing SUP? Recreational SUP? It’s all available. A blow-up board is the ultimate in convenience and versatility, but a fiberglass board gets you where you need to go. Maybe she’s landlocked, but chills out in the pool. A motorized pool float will also get her to where she needs to go and will allow her the relaxation she’s looking for. And, definitely don’t forget her drink holders. The crown jewel of her tropical gift could be the tropical parrot ornament or the tropical fish ornaments.

Our list isn’t exhaustive, but we hope that this gift guide sparks some ideas for your special woman. Finding the perfect Christmas gift can be nerve wracking, so start early, search exhaustively and don’t stop until you find the gift that exudes thoughtfulness and love. You can do it!
