Some women are simply hard to shop for. It might be tough to think of something for her because she is picky, she already has everything or she prefers shopping for herself. Whatever the reason, there is always something that she would love. Get creative and come up with something she doesn't have. Alternatively, buy her a better version of something she has.


If she's hard to shop for, go for something rare that she would not be able to find every day. For example, if she loves clothing, buy her something that a famous actress once wore. Or go with a vintage designer handbag from decades ago. Maybe she is a big music fan. Purchase an item that has been autographed by her favourite band or musician.


Maybe she is difficult to shop for because it seems like she already has everything you might buy for her. Don't be afraid to duplicate. Think of things she already has that could use an upgrade. For example, maybe she loves cooking, but she has every kitchen tool imaginable. Buy her a new state-of-the-art stand mixer with a bread hook, pasta maker attachment and extra mixing bowl. If she loves listening to music but already has an ipod player, buy her a better one.


Some women are hard to shop for because there is nothing they need and almost nothing they could not afford to buy themselves. If she genuinely does not want you to purchase a gift for her, put your money to good use. Choose a charity she supports and give a donation in her name. Maybe you aren't sure which charities she donates to. In that case, think about her life and choose one that seems to fit. For example, if she has pets, donate to the local animal shelter. If she loves the outdoors, donate to an organisation devoted to saving forest land.


Maybe you aren't sure what to get her because she is extremely picky. No matter how picky she is, most women love a nice piece of jewellery. Choose something classic and simple, such as a delicate locket on a thin chain or a white gold bangle bracelet. If she has a few pieces of jewellery that she wears often, buy a pair of earrings, a necklace or a ring that coordinates with something she already owns.
