Whether it’s your first or fifteenth Christmas spent with your girlfriend, you’ll want to make her the happiest girl in town.
But whatever gift you decide to give her, make sure you personalize it to show that you put some thought into her gift. At the end of the day, the best gifts are not the most expensive, but the most thoughtful.
Take a peak below for gift ideas.
The Usual Suspects
Candy, cards, seasonal flowers and stuffed animals are all good choices, especially if the relationship is brand new, and you don’t know a lot about her yet. These are also good add-ons if you want to get her a little extra something with another gift.

If you reaaaally want to impress her this Christmas, then take her somewhere! Gifts aren’t only about material objects; they’re about creating memories that you can both share.
- If you live in Ontario and are in driving distance, take her for a wine tasting tour at any one of the wineries found in the Niagara region. Try Hillebrand, Jackson Triggs or Peller Estates.
- If she loves musicals, buy her tickets to a popular show. Check out Mirvish.com for ideas if you’re around Toronto, or use our RazorGator Canada coupons to get $10 or 10% off your order. Before you order tickets, try to casually ask her what she’d like to see. This may be tricky, so try to slip it into casual conversation.
- If she’s a sports fan, get her tickets to see her favourite team play. Maybe get her a team jersey along with it to amp up the team spirit.
When choosing the perfect perfume, choose a scent that you’re attracted to and would want to smell on her. If she already has a favourite scent, get her the same bottle or a gift set of lotion and shower gels. You can also ask a sales representative for fragrances similar to the one she wears, or search her fragrance on Amazon and look for “Customers who bought this item also bought” suggestions.

Ultimately, coming up with a good gift idea comes down to listening. Pay attention when she mentions wanting something in passing or if she shows particular interest in an item while you’re out window shopping. Leave a reminder note in your phone if it helps you remember. She’ll be thrilled at your thoughtfulness!
