Holiday gifting doesn’t have to be hard. If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for the lady in your life, whether it’s your sister, girlfriend, fiancé, wife, aunt, you name it, we have a foolproof list for you. Every item on our list is something we want (or have *already* purchased) for ourselves. These gift picks are sure to impress to the point she’ll wonder how you even know what exfoliating sugar cubes are — or that she needed another pair of yoga pants this holiday (read: always). And don’t worry — you can claim all the credit! We just want to help you get it right this holiday.
1. Harper + Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes
You can’t put a price on self-care, which every busy woman needs more of. These sugar cubes are the ‘it’ gift to help her get that much-deserved R&R. These six exfoliating cubes are enriched with shea butter and aloe vera and they soften in water so as she’s rinsing off she can run these fresh-smelling cubes along her arms and legs to soften up dry spots and leave her smelling absolutely amazing. Who needs a trip to the spa when you have these?
2. FOREO LUNA mini 2 Facial Cleansing Brush
If you want to gift her a luxury beauty item she hasn’t bothered to buy herself — this is it. The FOREO LUNA facial cleansing brush is magic. If she’s the type of woman who can never go to bed without washing her face, she’s bound to appreciate this travel-sized cleansing tool. Beauty mavens swear by it as it reaches deep beneath the surface to remove any impurities and unclog pores. This travel-size version is extra special because it’s literally stocking-sized.
3. lululemon Women’s Align Pant II 25’’
Sponsored by lululemon
We’ve worn these lululemon leggings during several yoga classes and can verify they don’t budge or pinch during a fast-paced Vinyasa. Women can never have too many yoga pants, and we guarantee if you gift her a pair of these, or two, they’ll be in constant rotation for her weekends and workouts. If you need a color recommendation, we’re partial to the Polar Shift Emboss Black, pictured here, which is giving us all the holiday feels this season.
4. Hydro Flask Standard Mouth Water Bottle
Brighten up her desk with one of these water bottles from Hydro Flask. The office can be draining — and dehydrating — so this will help her stay hydrated and happy while toiling away. And all her coworkers will be wanting one of these for themselves!
5. Birdies Cheetah Flats
Trust us when we say, we live in these, and the woman in your life will, too. There are endless patterns to pick from depending on her persona. Does she live in leopard? Is she more of an olive green gal? You can’t go wrong with any of these colors but we’re particularly partial to the animal prints which are trending this season.
6. Kindle Paperwhite
Of all the gifts we’ve been given in the past, this is probably the one we use the most. She can load new best-selling books and her favorite magazines, or browse new releases so she’s never stuck without a good read on her next commute or vacay. For an even more thoughtful gift, gift her an Audible credit as well so she can pick out a few books right when she receives her new Paperwhite.
7. Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones WH1000XM3
She doesn’t need to be a total tech nerd to appreciate a killer pair of noise-cancelling headphones. Whether she travels a lot and could use these for the plane or simply would enjoy streaming her favorite podcast at home on the couch without distraction, these Sony headphones are best in class. They offer unrivaled noise cancelling, side panel touch controls, a fast-charging battery with long lifespan, and even include built-in Alexa functionality, too.
8. Rolling Stones 6-Pack Gift Set of Socks
One can never have too many socks. Liven up her sock drawer with this limited-edition set of Rolling Stones socks in celebration of 50 years of the band. We know vintage band tees are all the rage right now, but this will take her love of music to a new level and will spark all kinds of conversation in her next board meeting.
9. Givenchy Le Rouge Mini Lipstick Set
If your boo appreciates any and all things beauty, she’s going to love this set of holiday red lipsticks from Givenchy. This is a new, limited-edition holiday gift set which includes four miniature Le Rouge lipsticks in their best-selling shades. ‘Tis the season for a true red, and nothing says “I love you” more than gifting her a set up lipsticks that you promise to kiss off her later.
