Even if she says so, “nothing” is never a good gift idea for the woman in your life. Here are some unique gift ideas for women.
Whether you have a horrible memory when it comes to birthdays or you’re just bad at presents, you’re probably not helped by the fact that the woman in your life doesn’t want anything.
Sure, she has everything, but she still deserves spoiling. The question is: what should you get her?
Fear not, good sir. Check out these great gift ideas for women who have everything, want nothing, and deserve to be treated like the queens they are.
1. A Monthly Subscription Box
These days, there seems to be a monthly subscription box for everything. Why not use it to give a gift that keeps on giving?
If your girl is a glamour queen, you could go for a makeup subscription box like Ipsy. Just, make sure you understand her makeup preferences (or let her fill out the quiz herself so she gets the makeup she actually wants).
Or, if she’s a yoga addict, you can get her a monthly yoga subscription box like Buddhibox. They also have the option of selecting a jewelry box delivered every three months or a “BBEO” box with essential oils, crystals, and meditations.
If she’s an eco-friendly foodie, go for a weekly Happy Harvest box. They deliver ugly or excess produce in a weekly box, and it costs less than going to the grocery store.
2. A Recipe Book
If she’s a foodie who’s happiest in the kitchen up to her elbows in flour, why not get her a recipe book?
The design of the book is super chic (can’t do much better than Kate Spade) and it has plenty of space for her to jot down all her favorite recipes.
If you’re feeling like an overachiever, you can get her started by writing in some of your favorite shared recipes. You could even make her dinner using one of the recipes you write and give her the book over dinner.
3. A Desktop Weekly Planner
She’s a grown woman with a grown-up job and real life responsibilities.
And if you want to avoid a deadweight gift (the company wasted time making it, you wasted time buying it, and she wasted time returning it) go for useful gifts. Plus, useful gifts can have surprising sentimental value.
With that in mind, help her balance the many tasks on her plate with this desktop weekly planner. It’s a little sign of you every day, and it makes every long hour in the office easier.
Of course, if you want something truly timeless, take a cue from a princess.
The Queen herself gave Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, a pair of pearl earrings as a gift, and if it’s good enough for a queen to gift to her granddaughter-in-law, you can take it as your cue!
Freshwater pearl earrings can add grace and dimension to any outfit, and they look good no matter how old you are.
5. Waterproof Bluetooth Speakers
If she’s the kind of girl with a Spotify playlist for every occasion, then give her a gift that will let her play her music loud and proud: waterproof Bluetooth speakers.
Not only are they easy to operate, but they can also survive an impressive amount of abuse, so you can play your tunes poolside without fear. View here for speakers that can be submerged in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes without damage.
6. Courvoisier VSOP Holiday Gift Pack
Is she the kind of woman who likes nothing more than a crackling fire and a glass of cognac at the end of the night?
She’s got game. We respect that. So should you.
For this awesome lady, go for the Courvoisier VSOP Holiday gift pack. You’ll get a 750 ml bottle of Courvoisier VSOP with two premium rocks glasses with the Courvoisier logo, packaged in a sleek wooden box.
It’s classy, and so is she. Enough said.
7. Thoughtfully Mason Herb Jars
If she’s got a green thumb, why not give her the tools to nurture a few more leafy friends in her apartment?
The Mason Herb Jar Garden comes with stylish mason jar planters for rosemary, sage, and basil seeds finished with farmer’s twine ribbon. Not only will she be able to wake up each morning to the smell of fresh herbs, but she’ll also have fresh herbs on hand to cook with, which is always a plus.
8. Artist Sketch from a Photo
Sometimes, nothing beats a sentimental gift.
For that, take your favorite photo of the two of you, a beloved pet, or your family and get an artist to transform it into a beautiful sketch.
This is a gift that has real heart behind it. It’s something she can look at every day to remind her of something she loves, and that’s a gift she’ll cherish forever.
9. A Lists Book
These days, most people keep their lists on their phone. It’s almost unheard of to go old school.
But then again, she’s not just anyone. And she’s adamant that she’d rather write things down than drop them into her phone.
Help her slow down with a book of lists as a one-stop-shop for all the things she needs to remember. Plus, it’s a reminder of everything that makes her…well, her.
