The Different Types of Gifts for Women
Luxury and Trendy Gifts: Cool designer gifts like a high-end tote, frock, or perfume are always foolproof for any fashion or beauty lover on your list. In terms of fun luxury gifts for her, especially if she’s someone who already has everything, you can also go the tech gifts route with a brand new Apple watch, noise-canceling headphones, or monogrammed iPhone case. Also, consider the latest cutting-edge skincare and wellness tools, like a high-end microcurrent device, infrared sauna blanket, or Theragun eye mask, for a gift that will truly wow.
Shopping for trendy, cool gifts doesn’t mean you have to invest in something expensive, though. There are a range of items, including must-have beauty and self-care gifts, across all price points to fit any budget. Think the TikTok-famous Revlon One-Step styler, which is a great affordable alternative to the Dyson hair dryer. Cozy presents such as a plush robe, women’s slippers, or throw blanket similarly make for indulgent and relaxing moments, too.
Also to note is that some self-care and beauty gifts come in amazing sets to suit different needs, including everyday mood-boosting kits, rejuvenating haircare systems, and pregnancy-themed options that make the perfect gift for new moms (although keep in mind these options tend to be a bit pricier than buying an individual product).
Creative and Unique Gifts: When shopping for any woman or mom who has everything, creative and unique gifts are another great way to go. For example, if she loves her furry friend, consider getting her something quirky like a custom pet portrait. Or, if she’s a jetsetter, a solid piece of luggage or travel accessory will help make the prep for her next vacation that much easier. No matter her hobbies, rare designer accessories and unusual gifts like unexpected-yet-stylish home decor are superb choices.
Thoughtful and Sentimental Gifts: Anything personalized can never steer you wrong for a birthday, Mother’s Day or special event gift, including pieces like a digital picture frame, monogrammed jewelry or wine glass that you can customize with multiple photos. If you’re shopping for your wife or a romantic gift for your girlfriend, a fill-in journal in which you can write special love notes makes for a supremely romantic gift.
As previously mentioned, keeping your giftee’s interests and hobbies in mind when shopping is crucial, since it shows you put thought into her gift and ensures it will actually be something she’ll use. For example, tennis, yoga and running gifts well suit fitness fanatics, like a sleek new racket, buttery-soft pair of leggings or stylish yet made-to-perform sneaker.
