65. livho Blue Light Blocking Glasses
This is another gift that definitely falls under the “practical” category, but is a great one at that. If your girlfriend or wife is working from home, these are a must. Blue light is emitted from screens of all sizes and can cause eye strain, headaches, blurred vision and difficulty concentrating. These non-prescription lenses will help her avoid all of this and look super chic at the same time! They have ultra-lightweight and flexible frames built for durability, and the leopard print is super cute.

Is your girlfriend, wife, mom or sister the boss? Treat her as such by gifting her these power-move boots this Valentine’s Day. They’re great booties for a variety of outfits during the winter, spring, summer and fall and one of the most flattering boots ever made. They’re made with Everlane’s textured ReKnit fabric and have just the right amount of stretch to stay comfortable all day. The heel is tall enough to make a statement while still being walkable, and the whole pair is made of nine renewed plastic water bottles — so your gift is environmental and stylish.

68. 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 Guasha 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.

It has two holes on either side that enable two incense sticks to burn at once, and catches all of the ash below for easy cleaning and no mess.
