Having trouble deciding what to get the single girl in your life? Need a little inspiration? Whether you’re thinking of a friend or your sister, your daughter or niece, these five gifts are suitable for all the women in your life.

Something to Wear

For the single girl who loves to stay fit, consider gifting her a brand new running jacket. But not just any old jacket — get her a reflective windbreaker that keeps her safe and seen while she runs outside in the evening or early morning hours when it’s still a little dark outside. Nike offers Nike Flash, a collection of reflective running gear designed especially with women’s needs in mind. In addition to windbreakers, Nike also offers reflective shoes and vests, suitable for the dedicated runner in your life.

Something for the Home

A simple addition to any single girl’s home, security camera systems can give both you and her peace of mind. Rest assured that she’s just a little bit safer with a Lorex home security camera system installed. The professional-grade security systems are easy to install and they are also simple to use. And some security systems can be paired accessed remotely online, allowing her or a friend to check in on her place if she’s away.

Something for the Car

Make sure that she’s prepared for the unexpected by gifting her an emergency kit for her car. She’ll be able to endure breakdowns, flat tires and more with a AAA Road Warrior kit. The emergency kit includes 80 pieces, ranging from first aid items such as antiseptic, bandages and gauze to automotive essentials including booster cables, reflective warning triangles and a flashlight, plus, the kit even includes an emergency whistle. With this emergency kit, you can rest assured that she’s prepared to take on, or at least be a little bit safer, if she’s to encounter a problem out on the road.

Something for Travel

If she’s got an adventurous spirit, you know that there’s a risk that she might be putting herself in danger. Female hikers are exposed to different threats than their male peers. And although she might know the trails and insist that she’s safe, consider equipping her with a personal locator beacon or satellite messenger, just in case she gets lost in the great outdoors. Personal locator beacons send out a distress signal if she is in danger and satellite messenger systems can allow her to communicate her coordinates if she’s out of a cellphone reception area. Every hiker should have one of these devices in their pack.

Something for Every Day

For the girl who has just about everything, give her a practical gift that she can take everywhere and have on hand, just in case, everyday. Personal alarms designed especially for women are a great self defense tool for the ladies who walk, run, bike or travel alone. There are dozens of personal alarms, from types that flash with strobe lights, so that she can be found if she’s lost, to others that transmit sounds. Plus, these handy tools are small enough to take just about everywhere. She can toss it in her favorite handbag or clip it on to her keys and know that she can draw attention to herself in anytime of crisis.

Now these gifts are outside the realm of your typical romantic offerings of jewelry, roses, or candy but they are tokens showing your love and concern for the lady in your life knowing that she can keep safe no matter where she is. Have you given someone a self-defense or aid gift before?

Do you have any other gift ideas for the ladies in your life?

  1. OK, I’m so glad to see a woman say that practical gifts are romantic. Getting her something she needs is always more romantic than some sweet-smelling but going-to-die-soon gift or one that makes her fat. Real life, real love, real romance, IMHO


      1. That’s when you buy her new tires, and a full size spare if she has a car. Or a year’s buss pass if she doesn’t. Those are romantic, aren’t they?
