We’ve all learned our lesson with the vacuum…and the pots & pans…and that time we totally thought she’d appreciate the snow blower. We can all use a little gift giving inspiration when it’s time to buy for the person who’s always been! Whether you’re buying for your wife, your loving mom, girlfriend, or even your best friend who holds that special place in your heart – we’ve got you covered with totally unique gift ideas she’ll love (and actually want).
The key to finding just the right gift is of course considering the recipient. Some gals are practical, while others love being just a little extra. Gift ideas might mean a can’t go wrong perfume, or something a little more personal, like a monogrammed gift that goes the extra mile.
To help you get through your gift-giving list, we’re including a well-rounded list of inspiration and ideas like:
→ A face mask (the spa kind!) that will have her selfie ready
→ A super comfortable robe to keep her warm while lounging at home
→ A monthly bouquet subscription, so you’ll get a year’s worth of bonus points
→ The hair styling system that everyone is talking about (It sold out during the holidays!)
Shop our picks for the top gifts for her in 2023.
