Most women want gift cards, clothing and electronics for Christmas, according to a 2014 CreditDonkey survey. Sporting goods, music and movies were the least-wanted gifts by women.
The survey revealed that 84.8 percent of women would want a gift card for Christmas. Other popular choices include homemade gifts, books and household goods. Perhaps surprising to some, 49 percent of women wanted jewelry for Christmas.
For more help finding the perfect gift for that certain woman, check out her social media profiles. If she has a Pinterest account, it is likely that she has pinned several items that she would be ecstatic to receive on Christmas morning.
A recent survey by SheSpeaks revealed that one in four women use Pinterest to create lists of items they want to receive, while two out of three use the social media service to get gift ideas for others. Also see Facebook and Twitter accounts for further inspiration. Amazon wish lists are another possible source if they are shared publicly.
The SheSpeaks survey also found that 47 percent of women want a gift that they have hinted that they want. Another 41 percent of women said they want a gift that is a complete surprise.Learn More
