Silk Gifts for Her

Updated February 21, 2017

Silk items make elegant or romantic gifts for any woman on your gift list. No matter what your budget is, you can find a thoughtful and charming silk gift. Consider the recipient's favourite colours and patterns when picking the ideal gift. Silk pieces especially make ideal anniversary or Valentine's Day gifts.

Pyjamas

Treat a friend or loved one to a pair of silk pyjamas, which will make an elegant and pampering gift. Pyjamas make thoughtful presents for any occasion, from a "get well" gesture to a birthday gift. Choose a high-quality and luxurious pair of silk pyjamas, featuring comfortable, drawstring waist trousers and a button-down long-sleeve top. Pick sophisticated silk jacquard fabric displaying a delicate flower pattern. Buy a pair of pyjamas in the recipient's favourite colour, such as red, pink or blue. As an alternative option, choose a silk chemise with a coordinating robe.

Table Lamp

For a creative and artistic home gift, surprise a female friend with a silk table lamp. Choose a lamp inspired by a blooming lotus, featuring white silk taffeta petals, a durable black steel frame, and a hand-carved base of ebony wood. The lamp will look exquisite when displayed on a coffee table or desk. The light will shine through the silk petals, creating a soft, subdued glow. Include energy-saving, low-heat and wattage bulbs so the recipient can enjoy the gift right away.

Silkscreen

An Asian-inspired silkscreen gift will enhance any wall in the recipient's home. An elegant silkscreen is the ideal gift for a recipient with a discerning taste or who has everything. Delicate floral or cherry blossom designs are hand-painted on gold silk-covered paper. Choose a screen matted with a silk brocade border and featuring a bamboo frame for an authentic style. Silkscreens are available in a variety of sizes and dimensions, so choose one that fits your gift-gifting budget and the recipient's decor style.
