Want to know how to find the best gifts for her? Shop where she shops! Know her styles and her interests. And if you don’t know, at least find out where she likes to shop and get her a gift card to that place.
Please don’t assume that if you like it, she’ll like it. I have family members who shop from their point of view, what they like and what they like to buy, and while I’m grateful for the the thought, I’ve carted many a gift to the Goodwill or sold them in my Poshmark closet because they didn’t fit (and there was no gift receipt) or they just were not me. There’s another tip- if you are buying a clothing item as a gift, get a gift receipt. Sizing is wonky at almost every store, and unless you are very close the the person you are shopping for, it’s hard to get sizes right. Heck, I buy two or three sizes for myself when shopping online.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, here are some recommendations for gifts for her- whoever she is- mother, sister, wife, aunt, bestie. These are things that a majority of women do enjoy.
1 Jewelry– My favorite brands are Kendra Scott and Gorjana. I wear my Kendra Scott pieces on a daily basis and they have held up to constant wear. I have given Kendra Scott pieces to my mother and mother-in-law and they both loved them. I’ve built my collection of both brands through my Rocksbox subscription so there’s another idea – a Rocksbox gift subscription. They get a monthly credit of $21 towards the purchase of one or all of the pieces in their box, and monthly boxes or more if the box is returned more often.
2 Pajamas– Soma cool nights pajamas receive a lot of rave reviews. I have a pair and enjoy them. You can even get them in a short inseam for the petites or longer for the talls. I also enjoy this Target brand and this set from Amazon.
4. Coffee warmer- Anyone who loves to savor a cup of coffee or tea, or anyone who is now working from home will love this.
5 10″ Genuine Marble Round Vanity Tray My vanity area could use jazzing up a bit.
6 Vera Bradley Slim card wallet Given the current state, this is all I need some days. I don’t need the whole purse, and even when I do, this would fit nicely inside with the essential license and cards.
7 Slip silk pillowcase– This one is a splurge and my hubby thinks an $80 pillowcase is the craziest thing he’s ever bought me, but I love it and it works!
8 Packing cubes– This is one of those things you have to try to appreciate. I’ve had mine for a couple of years now. Even if you don’t travel much, you will appreciate these when you do. You can fit so much more in a suitcase or bag. I even use these when I’m just taking a backpack or overnight bag. I sold the hubby on them last month when he used them for our camping trip, so these make great gifts for her or him.
9- Purse organizer I have these in medium and large and love them.
10-Hair tool caddy– I use one of these. You can plop hot tools right into this and there is no need to wait for them to cool to put them away.
11 Bliss Plush Throw- I asked for one of these last year and my mother-in-law ordered one for me. She wanted to keep if for herself.
12 Tri-Fold lighted make up mirror I used to have a similar one but stopped using it after a few moves. I use natural light bulbs in my bathroom now and I just use the regular mirror but if I ever go back to using one of these, this one looks promising with tons of 5 star reviews.
