Most women today run busy lives, trying to balance work, a family and some sort of social life. If they are lucky they may even get some time to themselves. When it comes to buying a gift for such a woman often the best thing you can give them is something to help make their life easier, like paying a cleaner to come in every fortnight and do the housework, or even just have the carpet cleaning done. Often the busy woman runs out of time to go shopping, even for essentials, so you might want to give her a gift basket filled with all her usual skincare and bath products.

Gift Basket

If she doesn’t have much time to get to the shops or she needs a gentle hint that she needs to slow down and spend some time on herself, then a gift basket can be a great idea for a gift. A gift basket can contain whatever you want it to and you can buy them already made up, so you can choose one to suit your budget and it will get delivered directly to her. Choose a basket with filled with things to encourage her to pamper herself, like skincare products, candles, massage oil, a relaxing CD and bath products.

Gift Hamper

Perhaps she doesn’t get much time to spend in the supermarket, other than just to whiz in and buy the essentials. It is also highly unlikely that she can take the time to browse in delicatessens or food specialty stores. Buy her a gift hamper filled with delicious treats that she never has the time to buy herself.


She might work from home or she could head into the office each day after dropping the kids off at school or childcare. The only time left to do any housework would be the weekend, but that’s not a great way to spend her much needed time off. Give her back some free time to spend with her family by giving her the gift of a cleaner who can come in every fortnight, or even just once a month, to do things like the bathrooms, clean the showers, vacuum, do the windows and wash the floors.


Hiring a babysitter is a great gift idea for the busy woman, particularly if she has very young children who can be demanding on your time. Give her the day off to do as she pleases without having to drag the kids around. She can spend the day shopping for clothes, getting a hair cut or a facial, going to visit friends or going out to lunch.

Day Spa

To help her slow down, spend time on herself and just relax give her a voucher for treatments at a day spa. Either spend her for a full day of pampering or let her choose from things like a massage, a facial, a manicure or pedicure or other beauty treatment.

Gift Voucher to Shop Online

There are many great online stores that sell all sorts of things like clothes, jewellery, accessories and gift ware. Buy her voucher so that she can shop online, something that is great for the busy woman.
