The song “Santa Baby” by Eartha Kitt or Madonna offers a cute twist on what women want for holiday gifts. Here are the lyrics.

Convertibles, yachts, condos and Tiffany’s are out of reach for most men, but Sabrina Fischer, owner of the Sassy Peacock in Erie, offers some great advice to all the guys who visit her stores this week (and her own hubby)!

  • First off, do not wait until Christmas Eve to purchase a gift. It will stress you out and limit your options.
  • Ask her for ideas. She will be thrilled, and you will probably get a list with pictures. You can also ask her mother or a close friend.
  • Gift certificates/gift cards are always nice along with at least one item that you personally selected. Choose services that she would not buy for herself: cleaning services, spa services or salon services. Splurge on a spa day for her and a close friend.
  • Plan a trip for the two of you. Get a travel agent to help! A weekend excursion would be a nice treat for both of you.
  • Diamonds are a girls best friend or any other precious gemstone. Great deals abound this week.
  • Don’t buy her a gadget that you think will help her — especially if it’s one you really want. That is unless she asked for it.
  • Do not buy a piece of exercise equipment — unless she asked for it.

Hurry Santa baby, time’s ticking away!
