Beauty Bounty for the Makeup Obsessive
No matter what type of cosmetics enthusiast she may be, she’ll most certainly fall hard for any one of these beauty goods, like La Bouche Rouge’s very giftable essential lip and cheek set or, say, an advent calendar. Should you want to spoil her, Kjaer Weis’ Icons kit is the perfect gift to do so.

Other beauty counter mainstays include NuFace’s Trinity starter kit, Dyson’s Supersonic dryer, and a set of lip tints from none other than Hailey Bieber’s buzzy beauty line, Rhode.
Feel-Good Pleasures for the Homebody
Who could say no to a gift meant to be enjoyed at home? Bring spa-worthy luxury to her bed- and bathroom with Vitruvi’s calming stone diffuser and Victoria Beckham’s decadent silk eye mask and serum set. It’s also hard to miss with a cozy Ugg slipper or relaxing pajamas—the ideal get-up for all of her self-care rituals. The finishing touch? Diptyque’s Jasmin-scented candle, to put her in an instant relaxed state of mind.
Tiny Pretty Things
Jewelry or diamonds is always a good idea. These small baubles are sure to make a big impact. Kinn’s ribbed diamond ring or Dorsey’s tennis necklace will certainly leave her beaming upon unwrapping.
Swag for the Fashion Fanatic
It can be a challenge to shop for someone with particular tastes, but some items are guaranteed to make any fashion fan smile. The Row’s minimalist Park tote is a good place to start if you’re not sure what’s on her wishlist. Alternatively, who could say no to a bag from Bottega Veneta or Gucci? If she’s known to keep up with latest trends, Prada’s sought-after kitten heels and Toteme’s statement scarf jacket are surely the pieces she’s coveting most right now.
Gifts for the Gourmand
Both aspiring chefs and kitchen aficionados will appreciate a few chic culinary supplies or accoutrement to stock their kitchens. If you can’t give a Fendi baguette bag, Augarten Wien’s bread-shaped box is the next best thing; the ceramic storage container is practical and will add whimsy to her kitchen countertops. Meanwhile, La DoubleJ’s coordinating apron and oven mitt set is sure to make any cook smile—or you can stock her pantry with elevated essentials, like this oil and vinegar set from Brightland. Lastly, new-on-the-scene gadgets from Staub and Our Place will surely up her cooking game.
Entertaining Gifts for the Happy Hostess
Does she love to throw a dinner party, host book club, or is someone that always has company? Delight her love for entertaining with any one of these festive finds, from a drink pitcher with personality, martini glasses that match the mood, a set of colorful marbled serveware to a nine-piece collection of brass candlesticks. A scrumptious panettone is always welcome, too. Any of which will surely be a hit at her next soiree.
Must-Haves for the Exercise Enthusiast
Fitness-lovers will welcome these sophisticated additions to their workout routines. From Tory Sport’s best-selling activewear sets to Vogue’s—these gifts will ensure stylish and healthful habits. Set her up for success at any workout with Alo Yoga’s Warrior yoga mat or a set of glittering Bala Bangles. We can’t ignore all the ‘hot girl walkers’ out there, either. She’ll be ready to go in a pair of Apple Airpods Max and the latest sneakers from Loewe x On.
Conscious Presents for the Sustainably Minded
Whether she shops sustainably or you’re looking to shop more responsibly, these conscious but covetable gifts for women make it pretty easy. Consider Chloé’s Nama sneakers, made of recycled materials, or DeMellier’s cute and cruelty-free handbag made from 100% vegan materials. Paravel’s Weekender bag is made from recycled and natural materials as are these 18-karat gold hoop earrings from Octavia Elizabeth. A pair of knee-high black boots is a winter wardrobe staple—and this pair from Loeffler Randall is made from ethically-sourced leather.
One-of-a-Kind Collectibles for the Custom Connoisseur
How to impress the best gift-givers you know? Take a page out of their books and delight with something unpredictably unique. For something luxuriously small, look no further than Officine Universelle Buly’s monogrammed lip balm cases, straight from Paris. A chic art print or a Monica Rich Kosann locket are keepsakes meant to last forever. Then, there are home goods that stand the test of time, from Alexandra Llewellyn’s backgammon set to Sofia Coppola’s newest archival coffee table book.
Fashionable Decor for the Stylishly Inclined
Surprise your fashionable friends and family members by gifting arty home decor made by the designers behind their favorite ready-to-wear and accessory brands.
