Best Christmas Gift Ideas For Women

If you are looking at Christmas gifts for women then you have a variety of options. Try looking at simple but pretty things. Some basic gifts worth considering are chocolates or ornaments to adorn their desk or to place upon their mantle at home. Women appreciate the effort spent picking out a gift more than they appreciate the gift itself most of the time.

Diamond Jewelry

Believe it when you hear, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend." Every woman loves to receive diamond jewelry. Whether it's a simple pair of diamond stud earrings or a more elaborate piece, go for smaller diamonds in a higher quality rather than larger diamonds, which are obviously flawed.

Sexy Lingerie

When holiday shopping for your wife or girlfriend, you can't go wrong with lingerie. Select something sexy but not too sleazy. A lace babydoll or silk chemise is a hot choice.

Classic Watch

A terrific holiday gift for her is a classic watch — it will never go out of style. A simple face with a leather band is perfect for every day. For something a little more special, select a jeweled bracelet watch instead.

Red Lipstick

Make a statement this festive season with a gorgeous shade of red that will add a little bit of old-style glamour to any outfit. Best limited edition make-up collection for Christmas.

Parfum Gift Set

A luxurious gift set that contains a perfume and body lotion which have the woody floral fresh scent. Better yet, these come in a stylish parfums pouch.

Fall Rose Care Tips In Winter

Roses are no doubt the most beloved flowers of everyone. People admire roses for their colors, fragrance and elegance and love to plant their own beautiful rose garden. Roses have an undeserved reputation for being fussy, hard-to-care-for plants. But after all, they're just shrubs. Some roses do require more maintenance than others, but growing roses is something even a beginner can do.


Like all living plants, roses may be attacked by insects and fungus diseases. It is important to apply one application of dormant spray to each rose. A good copper fungicide, combined with a spray oil may be used to control both over-wintering insects and diseases in a single spraying.


Mulching is very important. It keeps the soil cool in summer and warm in winter. It retains moisture, controls weak growth, and renews and rebuilds the humus content of the soil around the plants.


Roses are heavy feeders and need food to get the maximum bloom, but not in the winter dormant season. The rule of thumb is to give them their first feeding in March or when the rose has six inches of new growth (whichever happens first). After that, every two months through October is recommended.


Roses can take lots of water during the growing season if the drainage is good, but will not tolerate wet feet in the winter. You should not have to water your plants until there is at least 6″ inches of new growth and the soil starts to dry out. Avoid watering at night to cut down on fungus and disease.

Cutting Roses

On newly planted bushes, cut off the flowers on the shortest stems, to allow more nutrients to go into the remaining flowers. On established plants, you can cut as high as the second (five-leaf) leaflet or as low as any two leaflets above the previous cut in order to promote more blooms – leaving as much foliage as possible.

How To Choose the Right Colors For Bedroom

When selecting paint colors for bedrooms, the first thing to consider is temperature. While warm colors advance toward the eye and appear more active, creating a stimulating effect, cool colors -- the hues from blue green through blue violet, most grays included -- tend to recede, producing a more calming and relaxing effect.

There's a lot of variation on the cool color spectrum; a bright green and a pale blue can create spaces with drastically different vibes. If cool colors aren't your cup of tea, warm hues that are light and subtle, such as soft yellows or pinks, can also feel soothing.

Find Inspiration

First, take into consideration your inspirational image's common denominators in terms of color. Do you like a variety of colors or particular shades and tints of a specific color? Do you like them bold or muted? Digging deep in the well of inspiration plays an important role in selecting and whittling down your choices.

Define The Mood

Secondly, is there a mood or theme that you would like to achieve in a particular space? Do you want a restful feel in the bedroom, or an energizing feel to the family room? The mood will lay the groundwork on the desired visual impact of a chosen paint color palette.

Use Key Elements in Your Home

The color of the flooring is an important consideration when you choose colors because it anchors the room and can impact the color on the wall due to reflections. Furnishings also play an important role in determining the perfect color scheme for your house. Since these are usually the most expensive and not easily replaced items in the house, they tend to suggest a coordinating color scheme that ties everything together.
