  3. Get her something that is very pretty. Most women love anything that is pretty, whether it is a work of art like a painting or it is something like jewelry. If you get her something that is pretty, it’s likely that she will be happy with her gift. Just make sure you get something that suits her tastes. Ask your spouse if you are in doubt about something you are considering getting.
  4. Get her some chocolate. Unless she is allergic or dislikes chocolate, this is usually a good gift idea for most women.
