What to buy her this holiday season

Stumped about what to get her this holiday? You're not alone.

With consumers earmarking a smaller piece of their budget for apparel and handbags, finding the perfect gift for the woman in your life may be trickier than in years' past.

While those evergreen categories shouldn't be ignored, it's worth taking a more modern approach — for instance, a designer handbag that doubles as a phone charger.

And as home values rise and consumers invest more of their paycheck into their residences, sales of decor and furnishings are expected to post double-digit gains this season, making them a viable gift option.

From barware to lingerie to jewelry and more, click ahead to see 12 gift ideas for her.
