Buffalo, NY – December 14, 2012 – Finding the perfect holiday gift for a special woman can be difficult, if not impossible. What’s a person to do short of listening in on the conversations that women are having with their gal pals about their secret holiday wish list?

Here are six must-have gifts that women are talking about this season—perfect gifts for nearly any woman, whether she’s focused on her career, is busy raising a family, or is an empty nester.

Touch-screen gloves: Touch screens don’t work with gloves and hands freeze without them. Touch-screen gloves are the solution; with the variety available today, there’s a pair for everyone—from sporty styles in bright colors ($24.99 at Best Buy) to classic leather with the warmth of a cashmere lining ($89.99 online from Sharper Image).

An inspirational book: Once the presents have been opened and guests have gone home, many will look forward to down time. What would be better than relaxing with a book chock full of inspiring, real-life stories and practical tips for getting the most out of life? The AHA! Handbook: How to spark the insights that will change your life and career could be just what she needs for the coming new year; order at  ($14).

A personal chef: What woman doesn’t need more hours in the day? Adding hours to the day isn’t possible, but a personal chef is. In a few hours each week, a personal chef can prepare and store several healthy, tasty meals for a family. Visit the website of the American Personal & Private Chef Association to find one.

Festive serving platters: Cross a charm bracelet with kitchenware and what do you get? Serving platters by Nora Fleming that can be customized with add-on “minis” for any holiday or occasion—from New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day all the way through to Thanksgiving and Christmas.

To-go wine glass: Wine-loving women everywhere have the Vino2Go wine glass on their wish lists this year. A cross between a wine glass and a travel mug, this unique gift is perfect for a walk into town or a stroll along the beach ($16 at

DIY gift coupons: What could be better than custom-crafted gift coupons? There are endless possibilities that women will love and appreciate—options ranging from a foot massage or a chick-flick movie night to a dream vacation or home makeover project. Download holiday coupon templates at
