Gift Guide for Her: Gifts for the Heart

gift guide for her

Do you remember the old Sears and Roebuck catalog? I looked for it to come around every year. I would spend hours studying the colorful ads, imagining an assortment of gifts under the tree on Christmas morning. The slick pages fueled my dreams and filled my wishes.

Now that I am all grown up, I can save and purchase just about anything on my wish list. This makes gift buying a little difficult for my husband. He asks me what I want year after year. And each year I have a hard time thinking of anything I need.

When my friend, Lauren from For the Love of Dixie, invited me to link up a Gift Guide for Her this year, I decided to make a list of gifts for the heart. Hats and scarves are nice, but a gift that ministers to you is a special blessing.

Gifts for the Heart

The fist place to start is to consider what really puts a twinkle in her eye. What is that one thing that causes her speech pattern to speed up just a little bit? What does she use her free time to do? Then, consider what unspoken or unmet need she may have. When she has a quiet moment to dream, where do her thoughts go?

I compiled a list of a few gift ideas for the she’s in your life. They are geared to speak directly to her heart. Use this as a starting point for your girlfriends, mothers, and teachers. Or, forward it on to your husband with the little winking emoji. I bet he will get the hint and appreciate the help.

For the Giver

  • A donation in her name to her favorite charity.
  • A gift certificate for a pedicure. (This was a nearly unanimous suggestion from all of my friends. We like to have pretty feet!)
  • A professional deep cleaning of the house.
  • Something from the (in)Courage Better Together collection. Each piece reminds us of our greater purpose and helps support Village Artisan.


Hopefully, this list helps you to start thinking about heart-centered gifts. With a little extra thought about what inspires the women in your life, your gift will bless their hearts.

What would you add to this list? I would love to hear from you in the comments!

  1. This is a fantastic list! I’m an ambivert so I’d like them all 🙂 But now I want to go watch those Allume 2015 speakers!

    • Allume 2015 is a “free” gift to add to your list this year! I may ask my husband for a day to soak in Allume and all the Compel training I have missed. Merry Christmas to Mama!

  2. every year i took a sharpie to my Mamaw’s JC Penny catalog!!
    love these ideas. spa treatments are always a great gift!

  3. Yes to daydreaming and wearing out the pages of the big catalogs as a kid! And yes to each of these 🙂

  4. I want two nights in a hotel. The first with my girlfriend, but then the second by myself! I’m an extrovert living with a few too many extroverts. 🙂

  5. I LOVE this list!! Even the extrovert section would work for me as someone with the gift of hospitality and someone who loves her friends deeply. Good gift guide!! Thanks for putting this together!
