6 best gifts women actually want

Make her feel appreciated this season ♥️



When people complain that women are difficult, it’s not because we don’t know what we want. Most often than not, we actually do. What makes women complicated is that what we want is usually something that we would rather buy ourselves: a pair of heels, the perfect red lipstick, or a little black dress.

Although what truly makes us happy can’t be bought, we’ve come up with a guide on making the most important women in your life feel appreciated this season. Here are six gifts women will actually want to receive and suggestions on what you can buy:

The gift of beautiful memories

When we take pictures, it’s not just for the ‘gram. Photos are our way of immortalizing special moments in life; they help us remember. Make sure the most important woman in your life is armed with a smartphone camera that can capture memories during the day and even at night like the Huawei Nova 5T. The phone has four cameras so she can take photos from different perspectives: a 48MP main shooter, 16MP ultra-wide angle lens, 2MP dedicated macro camera, and 2MP depth sensor. It also has a 32MP front-facing camera so she can take her solo selfies and group selfies with family and friends to the next level.

The gift of confidence

Jewelry doesn’t make or break an outfit; confidence does. Just like makeup, earrings can boost any woman’s confidence and make her feel powerful even on days when she’s feeling lethargic. Get her a good pair of statement earrings that she can wear either to work or to Sunday brunch with her best girl friends.

The gift of fitness

Motivation to exercise will always come from within, but one can achieve her fitness goals with a little help from her friends. Get her a smartwatch like the Huawei Watch GT 2. It has an impressive two-week battery life because really, who needs yet another device that she will have to charge everyday? It comes in a 42mm variant that fits women’s smaller wrists better. Not only will this help her monitor her heart rate and calories burned, it can also be her personal training coach.

The gift of style

The silk scarf made a silent comeback in the trend department this year, although we’d argue it never really went out of style. It’s a classic piece that elevates even the most basic of looks. Giving someone a scarf for the holidays is safe yet thoughtful. It’s a versatile accessory that she can wear not only as an alternative to scrunchies or headbands, but she can style it as a belt or tie it on her favorite purse, too.

The gift of me time

Women are nurturing by nature; we tend to put others’ wellbeing before we take care of ourselves. Sometimes, all we need is some me time and self care — a time when we don’t have to worry about anyone but ourselves. Get her noise-cancelling earphones like the Huawei Freebuds 3 to help her focus on herself and drown out unnecessary noise. Even if it’s just during her commute to work, being able to listen to music or her favorite podcast without distractions can make a huge difference in her day.

The gift of imagination

When we imagine characters and places by reading, we see with the mind instead of the eyes. You can gift a book about influential women, navigating womanhood, fantasy, or even a dystopian future — it will stimulate her imagination regardless. Getting lost in a good book is like going on vacation, only more affordable.

Sony WH-1000XM5 is a luxury for your ears

Improve noise cancelation and audio quality



Sony remains one of the most important players in the noise-canceling realm. While Bose is also a force in the industry, Sony is doing what it can to improve its own audio technology. Following up its impressive flagship lineup of headphones, the company has announced the WH-1000XM5, a new pair for your discerning ears.

Much like its predecessor, the WH-1000XM5 follows the same tradition of design. The sleeker evolution makes way for a softer, more comfortable fit around your skull, bolstered by synthetic leather.

Under the hood, the headphones sports an additional processor to improve noise cancelation, especially in mid to high frequency ranges. It can also adapt to various user scenarios like those who wear glasses or have long hair.

As always, Sony is also focusing on audio quality. The 30mm driver uses a light dome with carbon fiber composite material to deliver natural sound. Plus, with Sony’s LDAC coding technology, users can enjoy Hi-Fi Audio. DSEE Extreme automatically upscales audio files to high quality. Finally, if your audio can support it, the headphones is compatible with 360 Reality Audio.

The WH-1000XM5 also worked on call quality with four beamforming microphones on the device and noise reduction.

Starting May 20, users can buy the WM-1000XM5 for US$ 399.99.
