Are you stuck for Christmas gift ideas for that special lady in your life? Here are 8 gift ideas to find the perfect present.

It's already been one year since last Christmas!

The past 12 months have flown by, and all you want is to demonstrate your devotion by getting something meaningful for your partner.

But you are completely stumped. You can't think of a gift that encapsulates your unconditional love for her.

Luckily, we're here to help you out. Here is a list of unique Christmas gifts that will surprise her and make her fall even more in love with you.

1. Paper Gift

No lady expects a Christmas gift based on paper. This is what makes it unique.

A thoughtful idea would be to write a long, heartfelt letter about the time you have spent together. For some of you this may be a few months (or even less), and for others, a lot longer, even decades.

Remember, that using special stationery paper with a fancy print, color or texture will add a nice touch.

If words aren’t your thing, you can draw or paint a picture of something meaningful to your partner.

And if you're not the creative type, get an artist friend to create something unique.

Perhaps you can craft a special map of a trip you both took together (such as your honeymoon or first vacation), and have it framed.

Quite romantic and she won’t expect it!

2. Clock or Watch

Why not get your loved one a nice watch or clock and have it engraved with a special message, along with your initials and anniversary date.

A small, beautiful clock for an office desk or bedside table would also be a great gift that follows the theme of ‘time’ to symbolize your endless love for one another.

3. A Tour of You

Instead of getting something physical for a Christmas gift, consider taking your loved one on a tour of your relationship. This can be done on Christmas Day itself if your circumstances permit, or otherwise on a future date (which you can tell her about on Christmas Day as your gift to her).

Take your partner where you first went on a date, where you first kissed, got engaged, her favorite restaurant, and other meaningful locations.

To add some extra fun, make it a scavenger hunt. At each location, give your partner a clue to where the next stop will be.

This is a fun, inexpensive, and extremely thoughtful way to celebrate the end of a great year you have been together.

4. Jewelry

A traditional Christmas gift that your partner will love is a piece of jewelry. You can get a necklace, bracelet, or earrings that will mean something special to her.

Finding the right piece of jewelry can be a difficult task. You can go with a traditional heart-shaped piece, or something more unique, like her favorite flower in the form of a beautiful necklace.

This is something she can cherish and wear for the rest of your years together.

5. Give Her the Gift of Another Day Ahead

If Christmas Day is going to be busy with relatives and friends, plan ahead some extravagant day out for the two of you to wind down and relax when the festive season is over. Or a better idea may be to just stay home and make it special.

Cook your partner's favorite meal, and maybe create a heart-shaped cake for dessert.

Share a romantic bath or shower together, and spend the night watching her favorite movies.

These are inexpensive ways to show your loved one you really care about her happiness.

Present this idea to her with a card on Christmas Day, and she will have something to look forward to when all business quietens down.

6. Something Small but Thoughtful

Sometimes, the bigger extravagant gifts may come off as thoughtless and lazy. Many people would rather a small, thoughtful, and inexpensive gift that shows you really listen and care.

For example, if you've heard your partner complain about how dirty the house is, have her wake up to a perfectly clean home on Christmas morning, with the promise to clean up again after all the relatives and friends have come to visit for the day.

Nothing could make her Christmas Day more special and relaxing than this.

Or maybe your partner pointed out a pair of shoes or a nice coat to you while you were out and about. You took note of it, went back and bought it for her as a great Christmas gift.

7. A Special Kind of Rose

The cliche gift of roses isn't really good enough for the love of your life.

Instead, buy a gold, silver, or platinum-dipped rose that will last a lifetime.

This would be a great gift idea that you can use for every Christmas. Each year, you could buy a different colored rose, and watch as the collection grows side-by-side with your time spent together.

8. Scrapbook

If you are the creative type, making a scrapbook of your first months or years together would be an extremely thoughtful Christmas gift.

You can put pictures of all of your favorite memories, and add in witty commentary throughout.

Scrapbooking can be difficult to do, so here're some tips on how to get started.

While this may be the most time-consuming gift idea, it is guaranteed to make your partner fill up with love and joy.

This is also something you could make a tradition out of. The next scrapbook could be done for the next Christmas occasion, or perhaps on a special milestone in your relationship (eg, 5th, 10th anniversary etc.).

It is an amazing way to keep records of all the memories you have shared.

Tips for Finding the Perfect Christmas Gift

Still having trouble finding the right Christmas gift for your loved one? Here are some tips on how to find the best gift she will always remember.

Think of the things your partner values the most. If her favorite hobby is camping, take her on a surprise weekend camping trip.

Maybe your partner loves to read. Go to the bookstore and find a book you think she'll enjoy, you may just pick out her new favorite book!

If your partner loves music, create a mixtape of some songs that make you think of her. This is an inexpensive and thoughtful way to express your love towards her.

Make a list of the things your partner enjoys doing the most, and create gifts out of them. This allows for the gift to be individualized to her.

Another tip is to just be attentive on Christmas Day, especially if it is a hectic one with lots of people around. If you do this, even the weakest of gifts will be overshadowed by how you are making her feel cared for and looked after.

Lastly, don't over think it! If you have an idea for a great gift but are unsure if your partner will like it, just go with it!

You got together for a reason, so follow your instincts and watch as your partner bursts with happiness at your idea.

Merry Christmas!
