For spa seekers: Cozy Earth Waffle Bathrobe
Like everything Cozy Earth makes—including the Cozy Earth pajamas our editors love—this bathrobe is super soft and feels like a hug. What’s especially brilliant about this robe is its dual-sided texture: The ultra-absorbent waffle weave looks great on the outside and the plush terry feels luxurious on the inside. It feels so much like loungewear, she may never want to take it off, which is why it’s at the top of our list of the best gifts for women.
For popcorn fans: Opopop Popcorn Discovery Kit
If she goes to the movies mainly for popcorn, this Opopop popcorn kit will be her favorite gift. Not only are the flavors out of this world—think: Cinnalicious, Maui Heat and Salted Umami, among others—but the popcorn is also so much fun to make thanks to the collapsible microwave popper and lid that come with it.
In just a few minutes, she’ll have her favorite snack ready to eat in its own sunshiny bowl while she watches one of the best Christmas movies. The kit comes with seven flavors and a brilliant test launch pouch that gives her a practice round to find the right microwave setting. If you’re buying this for the holidays, consider the Holiday Discovery Kit that comes with Fancy Butter, Salty Caramel and Mint Cocoa popcorn. Yum.
For beach babes: Go to Your Happy Place Ocean Earrings
If you can’t actually take her to the beach, these breezy earrings are the next best thing. They’re handmade in Hawaii—where they know a thing or two about the sea—and feature a photo preserved in resin depicting waves lapping onto the shore. Jewelry designer Morgan Lane Tanner has created a piece of wearable art that makes gift giving a day at the beach. They’re great gifts for women who could use a little vacation, every day.
For the home chef: Our Place Always Pan
If she’s been cooking on worn-out pans for far too long, introduce her to her new favorite piece of kitchen equipment: the Our Place Always Pan. This editor-loved pan comes in an assortment of gorgeous colors and is designed to replace eight traditional pieces of cookware, so it’s pretty and practical. It’s one of those gifts for women that she may not buy for herself, but she’ll end up using it every day.
For the Anglophile: The Duchess Necklace
Any mom who’s also an eagle-eyed royal family fan will likely recognize the Duchess necklace. That’s because it was worn by none other than Kate Middleton when exiting the hospital with her new bundle of joy, Prince George. Make this necklace a personalized gift with name engraving, child-shaped charms and more.
For the festive woman: Rifle Paper Co. Holiday Village Porcelain Mug
Made of porcelain and embellished with metallic silver accents, this festive mug will put her in the holiday spirit any time of the year. As she sips her coffee or tea, she’ll imagine herself in this winter village with its Christmas trees, skaters and reindeer. This is the kind of white elephant gift people will fight over, and one of the gifts for women she’ll love to use while watching her favorite Hallmark Christmas movie.
For expectant mothers: Maternity Long-Long Set
Call it loungewear or call it pajamas; she’ll just call it her new favorite. Made of 100% pima cotton, this cute maternity pajama set from the softies at Lake has sass—and stretch—so she can still be comfortable and stylish even if she’s about to pop. Plus, the nursing-friendly snaps mean she can keep wearing it after she gives birth. Here are some more gifts for new moms.
For facial fanatics: At-Home Facial Device
Created by a world-class electrical esthetician, this amazing at-home facial device uses waveform technology to give her the skin she’s always wanted.

For the wordsmith: Little Words Project Bracelet
She knows that words matter, and now you can give her an inspirational bracelet with the word that matters most to her. What makes this gift really special, though, is that it’s meant to be shared. After wearing the bracelet and internalizing the word, she passes it on to someone who needs it more, spreading the word—and the love.
For the nature lover: Wax Buffalo Into the Woods Candle
Even when she can’t go for a walk in the woods, she can get a whiff of it through one of Wax Buffalo’s signature scents.

It has a sophisticated look but can easily be machine-washed.
For women who like their beauty sleep: Celestial Silk Pillowcase
Proof that sleep can be rejuvenating for both mind and body, this 100% mulberry silk pillowcase is a beauty tool unto itself. Not only do silk pillowcases feel luxurious, they tame frizz, reduce puffiness and promote moisture retention, resulting in hair and skin that’s, well, silkier. Our Health Editor tested a mulberry silk pillowcase and found that it’s the stuff dreams are made of.
For a stocking stuffer: Levain Bakery Signature Cookie Assortment
These Levain cookies are arguably the best in the world—the hour plus wait times at their stores proves it—and they’ll make her happy as soon as she sees them. The Chocolate Chip Walnut cookie is the one that started it all and remains the best seller, but this assortment also lets her enjoy Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip and Oatmeal Raisin.
