SHOPPING FOR HER
If you are struggling to figure out what to get her, here are some helpful tips to guide you during your shopping experience. What’s most important is that you find the joy in giving, and she will be sure to appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Figure out if she already has a lot of the same style clothing (she may want more of that same style, it’s safer to stick to similar style clothing rather than venturing way outside the box).
Does she like a certain brand?
Does she like a certain color or pattern?
What are her favorite stores?
Be sure to know what the exchange window of time is and be sure to include a gift receipt so if the item needs to be exchanged or returned, she can do it on her own without having to ask you.
DON’T KNOW HER SIZE
When it comes to size, this can be a touchy topic. If you really know her size, great! You are one step ahead of the game. If you don’t, can you get a sneak-peek into her closet? Look at the sizes she already has. You are safe to go with sizes that you consistently see she is already buying. If you don’t know the size, avoid buying tight fitting styled clothing and just go with something that is more of a one size fits all type of item (like a sweatshirt for instance).
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
Find out if she works out at home, outdoors or in the gym. This makes all the difference when it comes to shopping for a fit girl. If she exercises at home, then she will definitely need some workout equipment to stock up her home gym. If she has a gym membership, avoid buying a lot of those big bulky gadgets and get her something cute to wear to the gym. If she’s an outdoor kind of girl, maybe she’s training for a marathon, buy her some new shoes or a running belt to carry her belongings.
