Whether you’re shopping for your wife, your sister, your daughter or your boss, odds are she doesn’t want a random present. Socks? No thanks — unless they’re cashmere, of course, in which case, go for it!
To help you find that home run present, our editors spent weeks searching for gifts that serve a purpose or tell a story or will just add beauty into her life. They’re also within reason, price-wise, with a few splurges in there because let’s face it, she deserves something nice.
Included are gifts to delight everyone from the fashionista to the tech head to the multitasking mom. (And when in doubt, you can never go wrong with a crazy-cozy pair of pajamas, and yep, those made our list, too.) Shop all of our gifts for her.
Free People Ottoman Slouchy Tunic ($88.80, originally 148; nordstrom.com)
When the temps drop, many women want to put on a big ol’ sweater, and you can’t go wrong with this trending one. The oversized tunic’s extra-wide mock neck is warm (but not constraining), while the stretchy, ribbed fabric makes it super flattering. Available in eight colors, the sweater can be worn over leggings, tucked into jeans or even solo as a dress.
Aqua Leopard Print Puffer Jacket ($110.40, originally $138; bloomingdales.com)
Humdrum puffers are ubiquitous these days, but this one, in all its on-trend leopard glory, is sure to stand out. Boxy with a high collar and hood, the jacket has just the right amount of puff — enough to keep her warm on a chilly night, but not so much that she’ll be sweating while running errands.
Veja V-10 Sneaker ($150; nordstrom.com)
You know what’s never, ever going out of style? A classic white sneaker. And this one from certified B Corp brand Veja is not only Meghan Markle-approved, but also feels good. How so? The sneakers are truly eco-friendly, made from organic fair trade cotton, vegan leather, wild rubber from the Amazonian forest and recycled plastic bottles. The best part: The crisp, clean design will look great with everything from a dress to jeans and a button-down shirt.
Trunk Club (starting at $50; trunkclub.com)
Know someone who simply doesn’t enjoy shopping? This is the gift for her. From Nordstrom, the personal styling service will ask her to fill out a style quiz and then engage in a quick chat with her assigned stylist. Unlike many similar companies, Trunk sends a preview of the products selected for approval ahead of time, in addition to offering free returns. Done and done.
CRZ Yoga Naked Feeling High-Waist Tight Yoga Pants ($24; amazon.com)
Trust us when we say that these $25 yoga pants are about to be her favorite. Available in 26 colors and patterns, the high-waisted, ultra-lightweight leggings rival brands that cost three to four times as much. Also, they never need to be pulled up!
Outdoor Voices Exercise Dress ($100; outdoorvoices.com)
Fan-favorite workout brand Outdoor Voices recently launched this adorable workout dress, and we’re more than a little obsessed. Proving a lady can get in a tough-as-nails workout while wearing a dress, this one has built-in shorts, a phone pocket, and comes in seven colors and patterns.
