Brümate Uncork’d XL Insulated Wine Tumbler
Whether it’s her daily iced coffee, a mid-day sparkling water or a post-work glass of wine, chances are she wants it to stay cold. Brümate is one of the best brands for keeping drinks chilled, and this insulated wine tumbler is perfect gift for her if she enjoys sipping at her own pace without concern that her drink will warm before she can finish it. It’s made to stay cool inside, dry outside and is triple-insulated with food-grade stainless steel, so a dropped and shattered wine glass is a thing of the past. It comes in a bunch of fun colors, including this Rainbow Titanium, as well as glitter and matte finishes.
MIZON Under Eye Collagen Patches
These reusable silicone eye patches are a super trendy skincare product at the moment and a perfect affordable gift for any women in your life. They contain five different collagen peptides for helping maintain her eye area’s moisture barrier and gold for a glamorous look. The hydrogel is highly adhesive and designed to stick using the skin’s temperature, so she can put them on in the morning and walk around the house without them falling off. They’re formulated to soothe the skin, provide long-term lift and reduce puffiness around the eyes and face first thing in the morning.
lululemon Scuba Oversized Half-Zip Hoodie
When it comes to Christmas gifts for her, it’s hard to go wrong with lululemon. This Half-Zip Scuba Hoodie has just the right amount of cozy bulk and structure for rocking a cute athleisure look outside of the house. It’s designed to move with you and keep you regulated temperature-wise with a cotton-blend fleece fabric that’s super breathable.
The exaggerated, oversized fit gives you plenty of room while the waist cut flatters your shape. It’s got a kangaroo pocket in the middle for convenient hand warming, a phone sleeve for storage and an elastic pull that can also double as a hair tie in an emergency. This sweatshirt has truly thought of everything, and is definitely on the Christmas lists of SPY’s female editors this year.
Theragun mini Massage Gun
Mini massage guns are some of our editors’ favorite recovery technology, and this newly-updated one from Therabody is one of the best ones available. It’s a small, lightweight, compact massage gun that packs a major punch and is perfect for soothing sore shoulders, biceps, glutes, or sore muscles in general. It’s smaller and lighter in weight than the original Theragun Mini but no less powerful, making it easier to travel with and more convenient to use.
Levain Signature Cookie Assortment
Levain is the famous bakery in NYC specializing in giant cookies, and this assorted pack is a perfect gift for her if she has a sweet tooth. They’re baked by hand every day in their bakery using simple ingredients and arrive wrapped in plastic wrap tied with a decorative blue ribbon. You can also order them in a personalized gift box in 4, 8 or 12-packs.
YETI 12 Soft Cooler Hopper Flip
YETI is one of our favorite brands for gifting in 2022, both because of the quality of the products and how many they have available! This soft cooler bag is perfect for packing a lunch and drinks for a few friends for a day out, and comes in a number of bright looks including this Nordic Purple. Its wide mouth opening will make it easy for your wife or girlfriend to load and unload pre and post-adventure and the leak-free zipper decreases the chance for mess.
SoyCandleNYC Customizable Candle Set
Trendy candles are a safe bet for any woman who loves decor, and this customizable set from Etsy comes in a bunch of shapes, colors and textures. The wax is soy, so it burns more efficiently and up to 50% longer, but the great part about these candles is they’re so beautifully crafted she won’t want to burn them. This means your gift will last longer, and whenever she looks at her impeccably-designed shelf, she’ll think of you.
The Mindful Collective Affirmation Cards
Starting your day with an affirmation can be super uplifting, centering and motivating, and this deck of cards is designed to help ease the ebbs and flows of life. Inside she’ll find 36 beautiful cards with gold foil edges in a decorative keepsake box that’s perfect for her nightstand or coffee table. If your girl is into yoga, meditation or leading a mindful life — this is a great gift for her.

Each hand cream is formulated to moisturize and repair skin, so it stays rejuvenated all day. Their organic ingredients are ethically-sourced and plant-based, making this a thoughtful and environmentally-conscious gift for her as well.
Brooklinen Super-Plush Robe
All of the gifts on this list are excellent, but there’s a short list of slam dunk gifts for her that are a safe bet pretty much no matter what. A robe is one of those gifts. What feels better than snuggling up in a plushy bathrobe after a hot shower or bath? This super-soft bathrobe by Brooklinen features Turkish spa-like Hex material for efficient drying and a chic pattern available in limited-edition colors just in time for the holidays.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
If your special lady dries her hair every morning or even semi-occasionally, then the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer makes a great gift. Yes, we know this hair dryer is absurdly expensive, but it truly is the gold standard of luxury hair dryers. And because it’s the kind of beauty tool she’d never buy for herself, it is one of the best gifts for women on the planet. We promise any woman on your shopping list would be thrilled to find this in a gift bag. There’s just nothing else like it.
Cushionaire Recovery Slides
We love a comfortable dupe of a much more expensive, celebrity-designed shoe. These are SPY’s Senior E-Commerce Editor, Taylor Galla’s favorite house shoe at the moment for how comfortable, durable and waterproof they are. They’re made with a rubber sole that forms to your feet and have two adjustable buckles for a personalized fit. They come in a ton of neutral and bright colors, but these lavender ones are our pick for the holiday gifting season.

Apple AirPods Max
These are a splurge of a gift, but if you’re looking to treat the woman in your life to something special, they’re worth it. They’re Apple’s answer to over-ear, noise-canceling headphones and come with cutting-edge sound technology that blew our editors out of the water the first time we tried them out. They have spatial audio capabilities with dynamic head tracking, so your sound follows you where you go, and the memory foam ear cushions are designed to stay comfortable. Can you say perfect for travel?

Each one is in a small, travel-size bottle and will give her a dreamy new scent for the new year.
Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 Instant Camera
ARRIVES AFTER CHRISTMAS
We tested many instant cameras this year, and the best option wasn’t the newest or most expensive. For half the price of the competition, our product reviewers found that the colorful Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 was the best instant camera for sale in 2021. Many gifts for women featured on this list are specific to a particular type of woman or interest, but this is one gift idea that everyone will love.

Comfort is one of the best gifts you can give someone this year, and this popular beanie from Carhartt is one of our favorite pieces of winter gear. It’s also one of the best-selling products on Amazon, where it has more than 100,000 reviews. It’s one-size-fits-all, cozy and comes with the signature Carhartt beanie right up to. It’s a perfect accessory for commuting in the snow or wearing during an aprés-ski hangout. This neutral navy is a safe bet color-wise, but it also comes in neon orange if she’d prefer something a bit bolder.
Hydro Flask Water Bottle
If your girl likes to stay hydrated, and we’re hoping she does, a new Hydro Flask water bottle is one of the best gifts for her under $50. Life can be draining — and dehydrating — so this will help her stay hydrated and happy while toiling away at her desk at work, doing errands on Sunday or crushing it at spin class. It’s got a wide mouth for easy refills and a powder-coated exterior that’s slip-free and won’t sweat. It’s vacuum-insulated, so it’ll keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot, and it’s dishwasher-safe.
Serena Williams Masterclass
Masterclass is one of our favorite digital gifts and last-minute gift ideas. They’ve got a wide range of experts but this Serena Williams is the one we recommend for women this year. Learn tennis techniques like groundstrokes and net play from the GOAT herself, a woman who boasts the title of #1 women’s tennis player and the winner of 23 Grand Slam singles titles. In light of her recent retirement announcement, there’s never been a better time to soak up all the wisdom you can from this legend.
You can gift an annual Masterclass membership for as little as $15/month, with the option for add-ons like the ability to download classes and watch on more devices at an elevated price point.

We love this gadget so much, we also include it in our round-up of the best Christmas gifts of the year in 2022.
Diptyque Paris Baies/Berries Candle

Everyone loves a Diptyque candle, making it one of the best gifts for her this year and beyond.
The Bouqs Co. Lemonade Bouquet
Random flowers is one of the best gifts you can give your girl all year round, but for the holiday season we’re recommending gifters go with The Bouqs Co’s “Love You Forever” bouquet. It has a classic mix of blush roses, campanella and free spirit flowers with peach, cream, red and orange hues. In the middle of winter it’s a bright, sunny treat with just the right amount of seasonal colors for livening up the house. She’ll so appreciate the gesture, and you can get them delivered in your choice of decorative vases or a mason jar.
Jade Roller Set
Jade rollers are excellent beauty devices for relaxing the skin on the face and around the eyes, and can also be used with face creams to help them absorb more effectively. This set comes with a Gua Sha scraper as well that soothes wrinkles and heals for immediate visual results. This pampering gift is great for women of all ages and interests — and pro tip from me to you: throw it in the freezer to enhance its effects.
REVLON One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer
This genius beauty product from REVLON has taken two key tools in styling hair — a brush and hair dryer — and combined them into one great tool. You turn it on, comb through your locks and brush them as you dry them, which makes styling much easier and faster. It’s designed to produce 30% less frizz than conventional drying methods and has three different speed and heat settings for flexibility.
