🎄🎁 Last Minute Christmas Gifts For Different Types of Girlfriends

Hey fellas, we get it. The struggle to find the perfect gift for your girlfriend is real. We've seen bad, bad, BAD Christmas gifts, from vacuums to irons to kitchen knives – and trust us, your girlfriend's GC has discussed it all.

But fear not! This year, we're here to rescue you from the dreaded "Worst Gift of the Year" award. Let's make this Christmas one to remember with thoughtful last-minute gifts for different types of girlfriends (if you have no idea what type your girlfriend is, don't worry, we've got you too).

1) Fashionista Girlfriend 👗

And no, we aren't talking about the lady equivalent of men and their Uniqlo wardrobes. Think of jewellery,


If you're sweating your butt off trying to figure out what's in trend, beautiful jewellery from local stores always go with everything! Now, time to figure out if she's a gold, silver, or rose gold girl... (Pro tip: see what type of jewellery she wears on your next date to distinguish her taste!)

Trendy Scarves

Nope, we're not talking about winter scarves for Singapore weather. Instead, take a peek into the landscape of high fashion with gorgeous silkscreen scarves -- perfect for girlfriends with that chic Parisian style, or je ne sais quoi.


From puffer bags, to Longchamp Le Pilage Totes, it's safe to say that bags (alongside diamonds) are staples in the fashion world. Check out branded bags such as from Diesel, or even Coach, for a fraction of the price here!

2) Bookworm Girlfriend📚

Come on, who doesn't want to snuggle up with a good book on rainy days?

Personalised DIY book subscription

For those with book-loving girlfriends, feed her literary appetite with a personalised DIY book subscription. While many services curate book selections based on genre preferences, up the ante by 'casually' checking out what authors she loves, or even asking her if any new books are coming up that she's looking forward to every month!

Favourite Book Advent Calendar

If your partner adores a certain book, then it's time for you to roll up your sleeves and get to work with your own DIY-ed Advent Calendar! Of course, for this, you'll need a little elbow grease to read the book and collect goodies mentioned in said books, such as chocolate frogs from Harry Potter, or even the Mockingjay pin from The Hunger Games, but we promise that the smile on your girlfriend's face will be worth it!

3) Adventurous Girlfriends🏔️

From bungee jumping to hiking up Bukit Timah Hill, we bet that you've been on every single one of those dates that make your heart absolutely race. Fuel her passion for adventure with an experience-based gift!

Well, from that picture, we know that love knows no bounds (vertically, in this case)! It's about time for you to take a little trip; and well, what goes up always comes down. Leap with Skydive Singapore as you reach new heights in your romance!

Paragliding in Indonesia

Time to pick up your passports and get ready to fly high! When you and Bae go paragliding at Timbis Beach in Indonesia, you’ll be high above the Indian Ocean. From there, you’ll see hidden temples, limestone cliffs, and the breathtaking Bali skyline!

4) Artistic Girlfriends 🎨

I think it's pretty obvious: if your girlfriend likes bringing you to art jamming sessions, and even the recent graffiti workshop, she's got a creative side!

DIY Craft Kits

Inspire her with a DIY Christmas craft kit or art supplies. Whether she loves painting, knitting, or crafting, a thoughtfully curated kit allows her to explore her artistic passions. Bonus points if you join in on the creativity!

DIY Gingerbread Kit

Alternatively, if you two have a sweet tooth, check out DIY Gingerbread Kits! From decorating your own mini house to a little tree, toast to a great Christmas season with your unique creations.

5) Gym Enthusiast 💪

For the fitness aficionado in your life, whose second home is the gym, consider gifting her gear that seamlessly blends style and functionality.

Fitness Accessories

Elevate her fitness routine with stylish activewear or high-tech workout gear like wireless earbuds and headphones! Looking great at the gym is a form of motivation in itself, and it'll even help incorporate athleisure into her everyday wardrobe.

Fitness Equipment

For the days that your girlfriend may not want to leave the house, but still wants to get her exercise hours in, check out some simple home gym equipment like a Premium Stepper!

6) [BONUS] The 'I Don't Know What I Want' Girlfriend🤷‍♂️

Ah, yes, the problem child of girlfriends (quick apology to my boyfriend for telling him this too). The 'IDK' is... slightly frustrating to say the least, but it doesn't mean that you can't get her anything, unless you're looking forward to a very angry girlfriend under your Christmas tree this year.

Rest Day

When in doubt, go for a versatile and timeless gift. A couple spa day or massage voucher is universally appreciated. It allows her to relax and indulge in self-care, proving that you've got her well-being at heart!

Silly Couple-Themed Gifts

This is perfect if your girlfriend's an old-fashioned romantic gal. With adorable couple items like magnetic socks, you can't go wrong! You can also look at matching ugly Christmas sweaters to stay in the festive mood, especially if you're planning to head to cold countries for the holiday!

Final Notes

This Christmas, let's retire the title of "Worst Gift Giver" and replace it with "Thoughtful Present Pro." Whether she's a fashionista, a bookworm, or falls into the mysterious 'I don't know what she wants' category, these last-minute gifts are sure to earn you major brownie points. After all, 'tis the season for spreading joy, not panic-buying at the mall. Happy gifting! 🎁💕
