Holiday Gift Guide for Her

Holiday time is when I love to shower the women in my life with gifts. I put a lot of thought into picking out something I know that special “she” is going to absolutely love. While this may seem like I’m putting a lot of pressure on myself to consistently “wow”, it’s really not all that difficult. Most women I know love receiving pretty much anything wrapped up in a box with their name on it. (Maybe that’s because they are giving so much of themselves all year long!)

So, in the spirit of holiday cheer (and who can’t use a little help at this time of year), here’s my gift to all of you. A holiday gift guide for her. Here’s to hoping this shortens your search for the perfect she-themed gift.

For her style:

If she's one for fashion, then pajama sets, slippers, robes, cashmere sweaters and winter weather accessories are always winners for the holidays. For the home decorator, go for art prints, candles and decorative pillows. If she's big on self-care, consider getting her a cosmetic, skin care or at-home spa gift set. You can always choose travel sizes when you're unsure if she'll love the products.

If those don't quite fit her style, consider gifts such as:

● Boots

● Sunglasses

● Perfume

● A wallet

● A purse

● A travel bag

● Reusable tote bags

● Bath bombs

● Makeup and brush sets

● A bracelet, earrings, necklace, watch or other jewelry

● A jewelry holder or travel case 

For her tastes:

For the gal who loves to cook, eat and/or drink, consider kitchen tools, cookbooks and bar accessories. Surprise her with a romantic dinner or delicious treat she's never tried before, or an engraved bottle of her favorite wine. Other gift ideas that appeal to her tastes include:

● Infused alcohol kits

● Tea and coffee gift sets

● Glasses and mugs

● Baking supplies

● A wine carafe

● Date night cooking class

● An indoor herb garden

For her intellectual side:

Think about what she does for work and even more so about how she loves to spend her time outside of the office. Gift inspiration can often stem from talents, interests and hobbies.

If she's a writer, she may appreciate a classic notebook and pens to take a break from her computer screen. (Hmm..hint to those in my life, I would love aforementioned gift.) For the woman who always makes time for her health and fitness, consider workout clothes and a S'well bottle. If she loves a good movie, gift her a membership to a local movie theater or original posters from her favorite flicks. Other gifts that may appeal to her include:

● Books and comics

● Tickets to a lecture series

● Records and record player

● Art supplies

● Gardening tools or indoor plant accessories

● Embroidery supplies

● An Audible, news or podcast subscription

For her gadgets:

For the tech-savvy woman on your list, consider gifting her a phone, laptop, tablet or TV upgrade. Bluetooth speakers or mirrors, smart watches and Polaroid cameras are also fabulous tech gifts. Check out this definitive guide to the best smart home devices to see if there any gadgets that she may love. If you're unsure where she lands on the Amazon versus Google smart speaker debate, we also have some hot takes on which one may be better suited for her preferences.

When in doubt, gifting a tech accessory for her gadgets is a good idea: 

● A cute phone case

● A laptop sleeve

● Wireless headphones or earbuds

● Portable chargers and charging stands

● Cord organizers

● Smartphone touchscreen gloves

● A Bluetooth beanie

Give her an experience:

For the female who's harder to please with material goods, consider treating her to an experience. We're talking weekend getaways, luxury spa days and wine tastings. Or try one of these other ideas:

● Concert, theater or event tickets

● A MasterClass pass

● A fitness or dance class

● A sunset dinner cruise

● Sports game tickets and gear for her favorite team

● A wine and painting class
