She’ll look forward to using this
Tell her to up the ante on her kitchen game, because a new Vitamix A2300 Ascent Series Smart Blender is one of the greatest tech gifts for creative home chefs in search of the perfect way to blend, puree, and even make one-machine soft serve ice cream concoctions.
Is there anything better than starting the day wrapped in an extra-soft, cuddly towel after a warm shower? Hardly, which is why we know she’ll love new Coyuchi Temescal Organic Towels in her bathroom. Tell her to study our guide to making towels last longer, too.
More restful sleep
A good pillow can mean the difference between a few hours of quiet time in bed and some serious REM sleep. Give her the gift of deep, restorative sleep with new Spry Pure pillows, which boast both waterproof construction and breathability. They offer full protection from bacteria and viruses by only letting clean air pass through them. Here’s how to keep your pillows from getting misshapen.
Hydrate happily all winter long
She can add a Quinn Rose Gold Travel Tumbler to her hydration gear rotation next to her favorite smart water bottle because it’s a sturdy-yet-fashionable way to take tea, coffee, and other drinks on the go in an easy-to-clean ceramic.
That’s what you’ll both be saying when you realize your gift of real gold large hoop earrings were the perfect score. You really can’t go wrong with lightweight 2.5″ diameter 14K rose gold hoops from URBAETIS Fine Jewelry that pair well with every look ranging from business casual to weekend wear.
You’ll be a hero
Give her a new Rainraps Reversible Waterproof Poncho and you’ll be a hero for years to come every time an unexpected day of inclement weather pops up. She’ll be able to switch her look from always-elegant black to a bolder print in just a few seconds, and enjoy hair protection thanks to a clever built-in hood.
She didn’t know she needed this
She may already have everything, but does she have the perfect pair of faux sherpa slipper socks? Probably not yet, but if so, a backup pair of Pudus is never a bad idea—especially since they’re a favorite under $25 gifts every one prone to chilly toes can use.
Om-goodness, how thoughtful
If she’s known to om and get her namaste on in her free time, she’ll love a new artistically-themed Yellow Willow yoga mat. They’re easily cleaned, rolled, and stored like other yoga mats, but they make bold art statements on recycled materials her soul will appreciate.
A buzzy gift for the matriarch
She’ll buzz about this Queen Bee pendant from Colby Davis till your next thoughtful gift-worthy occasion because it’s a fashion-forward affirmation. Paying attention to detail is one of the 11 upgrades to making your outfit look more expensive.
For the home decor lover
If she’s known to spend her lunch break browsing the latest throw pillows and home accessories and mapping out furniture moves, she’ll be thrilled with a Decorated subscription box. Each box comes loaded with at least $200 in home decor goodies, but costs less than half that. Plus, it’s the best excuse ever for her to redecorate her favorite room. These are more of our favorite subscription boxes for everyone on your list.
A purse she’ll treasure
She’ll get years of seasonless wear out of a new Dooney & Bourke Florentine Satchel, especially in a classic neutral shade of black leather, or a newer neutral like eye-popping red.
Healthy, happy, and simplified
She’ll thank you with guilt-free fries, chicken, and veggies galore after you give her a new Crux 2.6 Quart Touchscreen Air Fryer. Here’s how to clean an air fryer so she can keep it in tip-top shape.
Fitness gear she can take anywhere
The gym queen who already has the best sneakers and leggings will jump for joy when you give her a new Crossrope Weighted Jump Rope. It’s a portable solution to aerobic exercise that fits in her carry-on bag, pairs with a free smartphone app to encourage healthy jumping habits, and even helps her target specific muscle groups.
A new fragrance
Add a gorgeous new bottle of Elie Tahari Eau de Parfum to her perfectly curated vanity. The light, romantic scent of bergamot, dewy violet leaves, and pear will sweep just about any fragrance lover off their feet. Find out more crave-worthy beauty gifts she’ll love.
The gift of coziness is usually priceless
Cozy is less than your cable bill in this case, though, because high-quality Dagsmejan Nattwarm Sleep Tech pajamas exist and are waiting to keep her snuggle-ready till summer. She’ll love the over-thumb sleeves, too. Find out the other 14 bedroom items you should have replaced by now.
If the woman on your list is known for staying on top of every beauty trend, rest assured knowing Korean beauty gifts will be major hits. Those in the know herald the Dear Dahlia Dream Velvet Lip Mousse for it’s long-lasting, non-drying formula.
Run straight to buy a pair
Actually, we think she’ll love a few new Tifosi sunglasses if she’s an active outdoors-loving athlete. They’re ideal for running, but also come in outdoor cycling styles that will keep her eyes on the fitness prize instead of squinting at the finish line. Here’s how to find the best glasses for your face shape.
A significant sleep upgrade
If she already loves soothing noise machines and other top-selling sleep products, she’ll be grateful for a new Honeywell Dreamweaver Sleep Fan. It combines technologically-advanced airflow with soothing sleep-friendly pink noise sounds for the most restful sleep.
Best hair day ever
You’ll answer all her hair-related prayers when she saves time and money on salon blowouts. The gift of a new Revair Reverse-Air Drying device will make her rethink the way she sees her hair. Instead of losing hours and patience with hard-to-use typical dryers and round brushes, she can use a vacuum-like automatic blow drying Revair from the comfort of a chair, making it ideal for already over-committed types. Having a good blow dryer is a smart beauty hack for the days you’re running late.
Don’t spin your wheels
Instead, let her spin her way to her happiest level yet with a new pair of TIEM Slipstream Indoor Cycling Spin Shoes. They’ll beat out smelly rental shoes at spin class any day of the week, and she’ll be thrilled to put in a few more uphill spins when she’s wearing the most comfortable spin class kicks of all time. Better yet, the bike clips are recessed. She’ll be able to walk around the spin studio without doing that weird click-clack walk the folks in borrowed shoes tend to do.
Because you can’t buy extra hands
Unfortunately lending her a hand is a temporary solution to a long term problem—just not having enough Mom to go around. Rockit Portable Baby Rocker is as close to a bonus as you can give, though. It rocks any stroller effortlessly, so she can use her actual hands to finish her meal, take that important phone call, or just about anything else. Be sure to avoid these baby gifts that are totally unsafe.
Classic British candles are always a hit
When you’re really not sure what to get the gal who already has it all, classic British candles and reigned-in design elements should do the trick. Try luxe scents from Urban Apothecary, the London-based candle maker known for rich scents like verbena leaves and fig tree.
A total sanity-saver
Loved moms, grandmothers, aunts, and teachers will love receiving Dr. Biscuits’ Radical Road Trip, a travel game perfect for kids and young adults, with dozens of fun mini-games to play on road trips, long commutes, and carpool days. Share our ultimate road trip guide with her for extra points.
You’re number one
