We get it: Finding gifts for your girlfriend or wife is stressful if you haven’t been given a wishlist. Worse yet if she says she doesn’t need anything this year. 

We’ll level with you. It’s absolutely easier to buy golf gifts, gifts for new dads, and gifts for gym lovers. The items are hyper-specific with a small margin for error. For the true last-minute procrastinator, there are even clutch Amazon gifts for men that take the pressure off holiday shopping. But when it comes to gifts for her, you might feel out of your depth.

If that’s the case, fear not. We’re armed and ready with Christmas gift ideas for her. 

Our Methodology

We’re lifestyle and wellness editors with a combined 20 years of experience under our belts. We’ve spent our careers testing and reviewing products in the fitness, health, beauty, tech, culinary, gear, and home goods space. We also happen to serve as long-time advisors to brothers, dads, and friend’s boyfriends and husbands when it comes to brainstorming thoughtful gifts for her.

To make your shopping experience less harebrained this year, we’re dropping our top 50 Christmas gift ideas for her (25 gift ideas for girlfriend, 25 gifts for wife) that won’t make her ask for the gift receipt. Most of these items have been personally reviewed by us, while others come from venerated brands we’ve come to trust and love over the years. 

25 Gifts for Girlfriend

Depending on how long you’ve been together, gift ideas for girlfriends can span a pretty extensive price range. Maybe you want something affordable and sweet for the early stages of dating. Perhaps you want to gift a grand gesture of love or pop the question over the holidays. Regardless of where your relationship is at, we’ve got great Christmas gifts for girlfriends that run the gamut from fine jewelry to fitness and beauty tech we’ve individually put to the test. And yes, there are a few items on our own wish-list this year, too.

1. Hypervolt 2 Pro

While I’ve tried several percussive massage devices, none compare to Hyperice Pro 2—a lifesaver for sore muscles and relieving tension from hunching over a laptop all day. It’s now lighter, more ergonomic, and quieter than ever (so you won’t be disturbed if she’s using it on the couch next to you), and has five powerful speeds to toggle through with the turn of a dial (older iterations moved through settings with the press of a button). She can connect it to the Hyperice app for step-by-step expert guidance on warm-up and recovery plans, making it extremely useful if she’s training for a marathon or just staying fit for life.

2. Alo Yoga Warrior Mat

Hunting for great gift ideas for the girlfriend who loves yoga and Pilates? is a top-of-the-line option she can tote to her favorite class or roll out in the living room to stream sessions at home. It has the perfect level of cushioning, wicks away moisture quickly, and comes in several trendy colors. I suggest pairing it with an ($130/year) for access to thousands of classes. That’s the true definition of the gift that keeps on giving.

3. Tata Harper Holiday Hydration Trio

If your girlfriend lives for her skincare routine, she’ll be impressed with the Tata Harper Holiday Hydration Trio. The natural, clean luxury skincare brand formulates, manufactures, and packages products in small batches by hand on a farm in Vermont to ensure quality and freshness. This skin-quenching trio includes the brand’s Hydrating Floral Mask packed with 1,000 different sizes of hyaluronic acid to deeply penetrate and drench cells with hydration; Hydrating Floral Essence, which is misted onto the face once the mask is rinsed off; and Crème Riche, a deeply nourishing face cream to keep her skin soft and hydrated all winter long.

4. Ember Mug 2

As someone who used to microwave their coffee multiple times each morning, Ember Mug 2 is a godsend. Good gifts for girlfriends enhance everyday life, and this present in particular is great if she works remotely and tends to get stuck on calls before she can finish her morning brew. She can set the exact drinking temperature she prefers and the smart mug maintains her tea, matcha latte, or French press to the degree for up to 90 minutes with the 10oz and 80 minutes with the 14oz. This battery life is a 50 percent improvement from the brand’s first iteration. The newest model comes in a bunch of colorways (be mindful some are only available in 14oz) so you can choose what suits your girlfriend’s taste best. Choose among the Metallic Collection (Copper, Gold, Stainless Steel, Rose Gold); limited-edition Ember(RED), which donates a portion of profits to support global health programs with (RED); as well as Sage Green (shown here), Sandstone, Black, White, and Gray.

5. AARYAH Deepa Ring

Upon meeting with Megan Kothari, founder of AARYAH, it was abundantly clear this brand is a welcome disrupter in the space. Offering bespoke jewelry, engagement rings, and fine jewelry, AARYAH offers pieces you won’t find anywhere else. The brand has an in-house diamond wholesale team with the ability to source rare, exceptionally cut diamonds that aren’t widely available on the market. Those diamonds are ethically sourced, embracing the United Nation’s strict Kimberley Process that prevents “conflict diamonds.” Kothari and her team use recycled and certified fine metals to create pieces that are consciously made and intentionally designed. If you want antique diamonds, stones with unconventional cuts, and distinctive bands and settings, come here (read: go online or to the NYC flagship store in the diamond district). The brand’s Deepa Ring—a Sanskrit name meaning “light”—is an eye-catching engagement ring. A 2.02 carat oval yellow diamond rests within a bezel setting fashioned with a rounded comfort fit 18k yellow gold band. A one-of-a-kind love deserves a unique ring. If you’re not popping the question, some other favorites include Noir Tennis Necklace and Moora Triangle Diamond Studs.

6. Nette Fete Candle

If your girlfriend’s candle obsession is as intense as mine, she’ll always love adding another to the collection—especially one as luxurious as this. The brand’s hand-poured candles are made from natural coconut soy wax without parabens, sulfates, or dyes, and the vessels are handmade. And, of course, they smell incredible. Nette Fete is a holiday scent with key notes of frozen cranberries, gingerbread, and fir balsam; it’s perfect for a cozy afternoon curled up on the couch. The candle has an approximate burn time of up to 55 hours. There’s a fun upcycle opportunity, too. Once the candle has burned all the way down, the handmade ceramic vessel can be turned into a mug or other container; it’s food-, microwave-, and dishwasher-safe. Who doesn’t love Christmas gifts for girlfriends that are multi-purpose?

7. ‘More Is More: Get Loose in the Kitchen’ by Molly Baz

Courtesy Image

The best thing about next-gen chefs like Molly Baz and Laurent Dagenais is they’re making cooking a less buttoned-up affair and leading with their personalities. It’s cool to stand in the face of a ripping-hot skillet and throw convention out the window. Ditch the apron and don a sweatsuit. Baz’s maximalist ethos is the through-line of the recipes in More Is More: Get Loose in the Kitchen. They forgo convention and meticulous measuring. Restraint? Not welcome here. (When a meatball recipe calls for 12 cloves of garlic, you’ve got my attention.) If your girlfriend likes to experiment, this cookbook is loaded with bold flavor combos that reward playfulness, as seen in Crispy Rice Egg in a Hole, Sweet Cotija and Sesame Pancakes, Fried Morty-D Sando, and Last Meal Scallops.  

$24 (MSRP $35) at Amazon

8. Beast Health Blender

A gift idea for the girlfriend who’s always on her smoothie game, Beast Health Blender is a trusty steed in the kitchen. I’ve used it daily to make shakes, and it pulverizes frozen riced cauliflower, berries, and bananas with ease. Unlike other blenders, the blend mode automatically pauses at two points during the cycle for the contents to slide down and become fully blended. Aside from being incredibly powerful, sturdy, and versatile for blending (soups, dips, and juices) or pulsing (grind coffee beans and spices), it’s incredibly well-designed. It doesn’t take up too much precious counter space and practically doubles as home decor.

$165 at Amazon

9. Lunya Washable Silk Long Sleeve Pant Set

Looking for foolproof Christmas gift ideas for her? Try luxe pajamas. I always reach for Lunya’s loungewear at home, and next on my list is the signature  Lunya Washable Silk Long Sleeve Pant Set. They look expensive, but they’re also high-performing: They thermoregulate to help her maintain a comfy body temp. This limited-edition shade of green is perfect for Christmas morning.

10. Where Should We Begin—A Game of Stories by Esther Perel

Courtesy Image

With so much of our free time going to streaming TV shows and mindlessly scrolling, it’s nice to be able to sit down with a partner (regardless of how long you’ve been dating) and play a game that lets you connect or re-connect. This card game comes from Esther Perel, world-renowned psychotherapist and New York Times best-selling author. Within, there are 250 story cards with suggestions like, “Share something nobody knows,” as well as 30 prompt cards with engaging opening lines like, “A rule I secretly love to break…” It’s all about coming back to our origins as storytellers and going beyond surface-level conversations to get to know your partner on a deeper level.

11. Garmin Forerunner 965

Courtesy Image

I’ve exclusively worn iterations of the Garmin Forerunner to train for triathlons. It’s the premier multi-sport watch if you’re drumming up Christmas gift ideas for her. The latest addition to the family, Garmin Forerunner 965, isn’t just an excellent pick for triathletes; it’s excellent for any endurance endeavor, especially running. The bigger, brighter OLED display gets more information on-screen and makes it much easier to see and read maps and other detailed screens in low light. The watch also records wrist-based running dynamics including ground-contact time and vertical oscillation without the need of an external sensor.

$595 at Amazon
$600 at Best Buy

12. Kate McLeod The Full Body Set

Pastry chef turned beauty entrepreneur Kate McLeod launched her collection of Stone lotion bars from her Brooklyn kitchen in 2018 and now I no longer buy plastic bottles of moisturizer. These solid bars—made from a blend of antioxidant-rich ingredients including cocoa butter and sweet almond oil with scents derived from pure essential oils—melt ever so slightly from body heat and turn into an oil. It’s not sticky, greasy, or a hassle to rub in. The Full Body Set comes with the brand’s signature Pebbles to drop into a bath or rub on the skin in the shower for a luxurious spa-like experience. I personally love Sleep for its chamomile and lavender scent profile, but you can choose among Forest (airy hinoki wood, citrus yuzu), Daily (rose, frankincense, and neroli), and Breathe (eucalyptus, peppermint, blue cypress, camphor). My skin is never softer than after I’ve glided one of these stones over my skin. For conscious consumers, all Kate McLeod products are climate neutral-certified, vegan, cruelty-free, waterless, plastic-free, and refillable.

13. Tecovas The Abby

Gifts for her in the realm of fashion might scare you, but shoes are the easiest to get right. If you know her size, you’re golden. Ever since Yellowstone came onto the scene, cowboy boots have had a chokehold on style trends. And while we tend to stray from fleeting fads, cowboy boots are an investment piece that are more versatile than you’d imagine. I’ve been living in a pair from Tecovas. The Abby is a bit taller than your average boot, standing at 17”, but that knee-high silhouette pairs perfectly with dresses, shorts, and jeans. Navy, Midnight, and Snow are all crafted from bovine leather, which is durable but soft for all-day comfort; while Driftwood is available in suede. What I love about these is the detailed 10-row butterfly stitching running up the shaft of the boot and Tecovas’ signature toe bug, which has a series of horizontal lines stitched across the midfoot to help the boots break properly as she walks. The contrasting stitching stands out beautifully on each of the colorways and draws a lot of attention (and compliments). The one thing to note is, because cowboy boots have smooth leather bottoms, she should lightly scuff up the soles (not the heel!) with fine sand paper to provide traction before wearing. 

$335 at Tecovas

14. Hydro Flask Travel Tumbler

Not all gifts for her need to come with a hefty price tag or feel super extravagant. Hydro Flask Travel Tumbler goes everywhere with me. A few favorite features (beyond keeping my water cold) are the flexible straw, snug lid, and the fact it fits in my car’s cup holder. I prefer the 40oz, because it encourages me to drink more water, but the Travel Tumbler is also available in 30oz ($40).

15. Hatch Restore 2

As someone who typically hates mornings, swapping my iPhone for this sunrise alarm from Hatch Restore 2 has been a game-changer. It wakes me up gently with gradual light and sounds that support my natural circadian rhythm. The selection of soothing audio is pretty expansive with everything from calm ocean sounds to thunderstorms, the latter of which comes in handy if there’s a snoring partner. Unlike other similar devices, it’s not an eyesore on the nightstand. In fact, it’s a little reminiscent of a high-end speaker.

16. Glossier You Perfume Duo

I’ve convinced several friends to wear this scent from Glossier, which is warm and slightly sweet with top notes of pink pepper and iris. According to the brand, it’s formulated to be a personal skin-scent enhancer, which is where the name Glossier You comes from. With You Perfume Duo, a limited-edition holiday gift set, she can have one for her vanity and a travel size for on-the-go. 

$78 at Sephora

17. New York Assembly x Nimes Basket Bag Tote

Courtesy Image

If she’s forever schlepping her laptop and essentials in random tote bags, get her something that can truly serve as a carry-all. I bought the Basket Bag Tote, a collab between New York Assembly and Nimes, for this exact reason. I love it for its roomy size and interior (height 14.5″, width 11.8″, depth 3.9″). While it’s 14.5 inches tall, it easily fits my 15-inch laptop, a tall and narrow water bottle, charger, and everyday carry items. The large shoulder straps make it so she can wear it over a shoulder and, well, shoulder heavier loads. If you’re not familiar with Nimes, the independent Argentinian brand utilizes vegetable-tanned leather sourced from a sustainable tannery. The items are timeless—not just in materials, but also style. The basket weave lends so much texture and visual interest, making it stand out from traditional totes. While there’s no interior pockets or organization, I toss in a pouch to keep smaller items together, and utilize the snap closure. This is incredibly sturdy and designed to last, so she needn’t worry about everyday use either.

$390 at Garmentory

18. Dusen Dusen Pocket Pot Holders

If you’re newly dating but want Christmas gifts for her that strike a not-so-serious-but-thoughtful cord, Dusen Dusen Pocket Pot Holders are cute and functional. Each 8”x8” square pot holder has two interior pockets, resists temperatures up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and has a loop for hanging. You can choose among three multi-colored patterns: Egg, Stripe, and Oak. These also make the perfect stocking stuffer for the girlfriend who loves interior design and cooking. 

$42, Set of 2, at Dusen Dusen

19. Catbird Baby Pearl Hoops

When in doubt, jewelry is always a great gift for her. These sweet Baby Pearl Hoops from Catbird are made in Brooklyn out of solid 14k yellow gold and 10 cultured freshwater pearls, sourced from a second-generation family farm. You can buy them as a pair or as a single earring if she likes to mix and match or wear something less traditional in a cartilage piercing. 

$176 (pair) at Catbird

20. Blundstone L.L. Bean Chelsea Boots

I received my first pair of Blundstones for Christmas last year and I’m not quite sure what I did before these water-resistant, super-comfortable boots came into my life. Blundstone L.L. Bean Chelsea Boots are a limited-edition collab. The legendary shoe manufacturers have a combined 260 years of bootmaking under their belts so rest assured these are high-quality. The Chelsea boots feature red buffalo check that’s perfect for the holidays.

21. Bala Weight Kit

You may know Bala for its colorful ankle weights that blew up during the pandemic. If your girlfriend loves at-home Pilates or strength workouts, Bala Weight Kit is among our favorite fitness gift ideas for girlfriends. It includes the signature Bala Bangles (2 lbs each), Bala Bars (3 lbs each), Power Ring (10 lbs), and Bala Beam (15 lbs). Give her the gift of strength, endurance, and balance.

$312 at Bala

22. Frankies 457 Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

If your girlfriend loves to cook, you simply can’t go wrong with Frankies 457 Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It’s harvested, cold-pressed, and packaged on the Frankies Farm in Sicily. It has an incredibly nutty, bright flavor that’s perfect for drizzling and finishing off any meal. Bonus points for being USDA organic.

$30 at Amazon

23. Mark and Graham Travel Jewelry Case

This vegan leather Mark and Graham Travel Jewelry Case is a must for keeping all her jewelry organized on a vanity or while traveling. It includes a removable double-sided pouch for bracelets and earrings, tabs for rings and stud earrings, and looped clips so necklaces don’t get tangled. Choose her favorite color and personalize (for an additional $12.50) with her initials.

From $69 at Mark and Graham

24. Piecework Puzzles “A Box of Bagels”

On the hunt for good gifts for a girlfriend who loves puzzles—or bagels? Look no further than. There are 12 round puzzles with varying bagel and schmear/topping combos. (You can also go with the brand’s donut collection if that’s more her speed.) 

$38 at Piecework

25. Oofos Women’s Oocoozie Low Shoe

Like all OOFOS “active recovery” products, Oocoozie Low Shoe features the brand’s signature foam technology that absorbs 37 percent more impact than traditional footwear foam materials. That means less stress on feet and joints. They’re the perfect “house shoe” so she can be on her feet without the fatigue of being barefoot. Pro tip: Select a half-size up from her usual shoe size as these run small.

25 Gifts for Wife

You can be romantic or pragmatic—or strike the perfect balance of both by wowing her with a present that enhances her everyday life. What follows is a range of Christmas gifts for wife that include elevated everyday essentials and splurge-worthy handbags and jewelry (always a romantic gift for your wife no matter how long you’ve been married). You really can’t go wrong with these gifts for her.

1. Apple Watch Series 9

The new Apple Watch Series 9 has a more powerful chip, delivering a ton of new features without sacrificing the 18-hour battery life. A few new standouts: A brighter display, faster on-device Siri (requests no longer need to travel to the cloud!), and a magical new gesture feature that controls the watch by simply double tapping the thumb and pointer finger together. As with the Series 8, the watch also features a temperature sensor that tracks body temp every five seconds to provide insight into overall wellbeing and provide ovulation and cycle predictions. It also comes in a new pink color if your wife is all-in on the Barbie fashion craze.

$390 at Amazon

2. Recess Pickleball Set

Recess Pickleball Set is one of the top gifts for a wife who got swept up in the fastest-growing sport in America. Upgrade her gear with this set that comes with an embroidered canvas cover. The USA Pickleball-approved paddle has a honeycomb interior and durable fiberglass surface with the same sweat-proof, condensed-foam grip used on tennis rackets and golf clubs. The stylish designs certainly won’t hurt her game either.  

$168 (MSRP $198) at Recess Pickleball

3. UPPAbaby Vista V2

Courtesy Image

There’s a reason UPPAbaby strollers are as ubiquitous as iPhones these days. They get top marks for safety, style, and functionality. Vista V2 has a luxurious full-grain leather handle, intuitive foot controls to lock the wheels, all-wheel suspension with independent shocks for a bump-free ride, and a massive basket capable of holding 30 pounds. If your family grows, you can convert the system to a double or triple configuration with expansion add-ons. But for your first, the bassinet is a mainstay, with thoughtful features like a UPF 50+ sunshade and a perforated mattress pad and vented base. The inner liner and boot cover are also water-repellent. My brother used this for his first child and loved the ability to recline the seat and leg rest to keep his daughter comfortable when walking or napping on the go.

$997 at Amazon

4. Fewer Finer Two Pockets Ring

If she loves supporting female-owned brands, Fewer Finer needs to be on your radar of gifts for your wife. Madison Snider, owner, founder, and designer, creates nearly all the pieces in the brand’s capsule collection, vintage selection, and custom bridal designs in New York City. I love that all imbue a sense of casual luxury and are incredibly wearable, not just for big occasions. In the case of Two Pockets Ring, you can opt between 14k yellow or white gold. It’s a dual-sided piece—one face has a baguette diamond and the other has a small round diamond—with a unique story derived from a proverb that reads: Everyone should have two pockets, and in each one carry a note. When feeling discouraged or disconsolate, one should reach into the right pocket, and, there, find the words: “I am the rock on which this world stands. Everything revolves around what I choose to be.” But when feeling high and mighty one should reach into the left pocket, and find the words: “I am nothing but a grain of sand. Everything in the world is greater than me.” She can turn the ring to whichever side she fancies that day.

$2,800 at Few Finer

5. PHLUR Missing Person Perfume Set

Perfume is so personal and admittedly hard to buy for someone else, but there’s a reason why PHLUR Missing Person is always sold out. With top notes of skin musk, bergamot nectar, and sheer jasmine; middle notes of fresh cyclamen, neroli blossom, orange flower; and base notes of sandalwood Australia oil, blonde wood, and white musk; it’s a sexy yet cozy combination. I’ve been wearing it for the past year and have never gotten more compliments from any other scent. I even bought the travel-size version so I’d never be without it. I highly recommend this gift set so she’s covered whether at home or traveling. Plus, Christmas gifts for her from you will always have that association and since scent is so evocative, she’ll think of you every time she sprays it.

$98 (MSRP $122) at Phlur
$98 at Sephora

6. Oura Ring Gen3

If your wife loves optimizing her sleep but doesn’t love the look of a typical wearable, she’ll love Oura Ring Gen3, which is available in four finishes, Silver, Black, Stealth, and Gold, and two styles, Heritage (plateau design, shown) and Horizon (sleek continuous design). Made from lightweight titanium, it’s waterproof and has a seven-day battery life, so she’ll forget she’s wearing it. Packed into the ring are research-grade sensors that track 20 biometric signals—like heart rate, body temperature, and blood oxygen—to get personalized sleep and readiness scores for the next day. Pro tip: Take a look at the type of jewelry she wears (e.g. sterling silver or gold) and choose the finish that matches. 

From $299 at Oura

7. Houdini Shelter Anorak

Courtesy Image

Christmas gifts for the wife who loves to shred can feel tricky to buy. Boots, a snowboard, and skis are incredibly personal. But a multi-purpose shell is just the ticket. I’ve owned Houdini’s Shelter Anorak for years. The helmet-compatible hood works just as well on the slopes as it does on hiking trails, since you can snap the three buttons on the collar when snow and rain fall. It’s made of a versatile material called Loop Hardshell™ that manages to be impressively strong yet stretchy, water- and windproof yet breathable—oh and made from 70 percent recycled polyester that’s free of synthetics. The roomy fit makes it suitable for layering base- and mid-layers underneath, there’s a sizable kangaroo pocket to keep essentials handy, and a large side zipper offers easy on and off plus ventilation. What I love about Houdini is its products are circular, recycled, recyclable (return to Houdini so they can turn it into something new), and Bluesign-certified.

$550 at Houdini

8. Teva ReEmber Terrain

Courtesy Image

If your wife is an outdoor adventure lover, Teva ReEmber Terrain quilted slip-ons are a welcome break for her feet after a long day of hiking. The brand’s ULTRA-COMF insole technology is plush and supportive. Whether worn with socks in cooler temps or barefoot, a peppermint-based antimicrobial treatment inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria to keep ’em smelling fresh. I love that there’s a loop to hook them onto a backpack with a carabiner. They’re also great for running errands on a cold, drizzly day, thanks to their water-repellent protective coating. Opt among 14 colorways (birch/chateau grey shown). Finally, Christmas gifts for wife, made easy.

9. Sixpenny Esmé Glider Chair

Sixpenny did a soft rebrand in the summer of 2020 to hone in on slipcovered upholstery (now including beds) and eco-friendly, ethically sourced tables. We both have Sixpenny pieces in our apartments and can speak to the quality and craftsmanship; I have the Cordelia Console Table and Kylie has the Neva Chaise Sectional. If you’re seeking gifts for your wife if you’re expecting your first child, consider the Esmé Glider Chair. While charming, it’s sturdy in design with a base of kiln-dried hardwood, plywood, and metal. The seat cushion comprises high-density foam sandwiched between fill layers of your choosing: ethically sourced feather down or vegan poly fill. You can also select the slip cover material and color, which comes in 32 different variations. Shop among cotton linen, cotton canvas (Quiet Sage shown), washed cotton velvet (+100), washed cotton linen (+100), thread-dyed cotton linen (+100), recycled faux fur (+200), medium-weight linen (+200), and light-weight linen (+200). I recommend ordering swatches so you feel confident in the material and color, and don’t wait til the last minute to purchase as items are made to order. Set it up in the nursery the night before Christmas for a sweet surprise come morning.

$1,700 at Sixpenny

10. Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay HX Over-Ear Headphones

If you both work remotely and constantly struggle to concentrate during competing Zoom calls, treat her to Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay HX. Not all over-ear headphones are designed equally—not even close—but Bang & Olufsen’s designs are like the Rolls Royce of noise-canceling headphones. If you like to geek out on audio specs, BeoPlay HX boast custom 40mm drivers that have neodymium magnets, which  produce greater sensitivity, power, and nuanced sound output. She can select adaptive active noise cancellation or transparency mode if she wants ambient noise to filter through—like if she’s in the office and needs to hear if someone’s trying to speak to her—and toggle through Optimal, Commute, Clear, Workout, and Podcast sound modes in the app. She can even create her own by adjusting low and high bass and treble for a sound experience that’s brighter, warmer, more relaxed, and/or more energetic. Ears are cocooned by lambskin leather-covered memory foam cushions, while a pressure-relieving headband offers five different adjustment positions. She can keep these suckers on through an entire work day or long-haul flight; the battery lends up to 35 hours of play.

11. Anastasio Home The Chain Tray

Anastasio Home’s upcycled luxury home goods make for beautiful gifts, while preserving and expanding the livelihoods of craftspeople around the world. The Chain Tray is a limited-edition, 12-inch catch-all. It’s a beautiful statement piece for a coffee table, nightstand, or bathroom counter. Each tray is cut from a single piece of solid marble or stone and is hand-sculpted by artisans in Rajasthan, India.

$695 at Anastasio Home

12. Joey Healy Face Renovation Device

There are a lot of pricey at-home microcurrent devices out there (they use small pulses of electricty to stimulate the muscles in the face for lifting and tightening). Joey Healy Face Renovation Device, from celebrity eyebrow specialist Joey Healy, offers a ton of bang for your buck. It has five different strength settings and is perfectly sized for lifting the eye and brow area. 

$299 at Amazon

13. The Rowley Ripple (Two Pint)

Courtesy Image

Every gardener needs a watering can. We suggest The Rowley Ripple, as it’s both functional and incredibly elegant. The long curved spout helps with accuracy, and she can remove the brass rose to water delicate plants. We love unique gifts for wife that don’t stray too far from the norm.

14. Dyson Airstrait Straightener

Looking for a gift for the wife who loves a high-tech beauty tool? Dyson (yes, the folks behind the best vacuum cleaners) entered the hair game with a hair dryer and styling tool that I’ve used weekly for the past five years. The brand’s latest innovation is Airstrait Straightener and it can take hair from wet to dry with less heat and half the damage of other straighteners. It’s thanks to manganese copper alloy plates that automatically regulate temperature 100 times per second. The cherry on top: It’s cord-free and fully recharges in just 70 minutes. Choose between Prussian Blue/Rich Copper and Nickel/Copper.

Upgrade her pourover game with Great Jones Great Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Pour-Over Kettle. It comes with all the bells and whistles including a precision-pour spout and built-in temperature control system. This limited-edition Broccoli green colorway (a collaboration with Great Jones) also adds a fun pop of color to brighten up her morning. Pair it with a bag of her favorite coffee beans for a personal touch.

Staub, a premium French cookware and bakeware brand, and Jenni Kayne, a California lifestyle brand, partnered up to create this super-chic Round Cocotte, or Dutch oven. Made in France, the cast iron is oven safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and works on any stovetop. The heavy weight, tight-fitting lid also helps retain moisture for more tender dishes. If your wife loves cooking, it’s a timeless kitchen essential for soups, stews, you name it—and the neutral color and brass knob will complement just about any kitchen. 

$545 at Jenni Kayne

17. Papier Recipe Journal

If your wife is a foodie who loves trying new dishes, one of Papier’s Recipe Journals is a super thoughtful add-on gift to a kitchen appliance or piece of cookware. The hardcover book has 96 pages so she can jot down all her old and new favorite recipes. There’s even space to note ratings and tips for each one.

Hand soap and candles from Flamingo Estate, a lifestyle company set on seven acres of lush gardens in Los Angeles, are always in my apartment and they make perfect gifts. If you want to splurge and give your wife a taste of the best-sellers, The Garden Tour set has it all: hand soap, body wash, and a candle, plus wildflower honey and olive oil made from hand-picked, organic olives grow in California.

19. Kinn Ynez Pavé Huggies

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: If you’re at a loss for a Christmas gift for her, you can’t go wrong with jewelry. In fact, my partner knows to go straight to Kinn when the holidays roll around. The brand’s classic 14k gold pieces—like these vintage-inspired Ynez Pavé Huggies with 10 round diamonds in each earring—make for a special gift that looks just as good paired with a black-tie gown as it does with jeans and a tee.

Straight on, Prada PR 17WS sunglasses have a traditional rectangle shape, but when she turns to the side, it reveals geometric corners and temples that add a bit of edginess. Cool yet classic, the acetate frames are best suited to round and oval face shapes. They’re the easiest way to elevate any outfit.

Future beach trips will be made 10 times better by replacing your clunky beach umbrella with a lightweight (only four pounds!) Shibumi Shade. One person can set it up in a few minutes and the wind-powered canopy provides both shade and UPF 50+ sun protection. You’ll never have to worry about your umbrella getting carried away again, so this gift for your wife is really a gift for you, too.

If your wife loves lululemon leggings, it’s time to get her into a pair of the brand’s sneakers. They’re anatomically designed for the female foot based on four years of research. If you can’t decide between a running or training shoe for her, the new Chargefeel 2 is designed to be versatile enough for both. It features dual-density cushioning that fits both needs and a pressure-mapped outsole that delivers both flexibility and agility. The sock-like fit provides extra stability and feels super comfortable, too.

$148 at lululemon

23. Colville Striped Wool Blanket

Colville Striped Wool Blanket, made in Italy, is a colorful and luxurious accent to a couch or bed. When she gets complimented, she can share a pretty cool backstory, too. Colville works with the family-run Paoletti Mills that was founded in 1795 and still uses traditional materials and techniques first introduced to Northern Italy by Cistercian monks in the Middle Ages. 

$555 at Colville

24. Lake Jane Sweater

Lake’s pajamas are a consistent go-to for just about everyone on my shopping list. Now the brand has super-soft 100 percent cotton knitwear in the core lineup, too. Lake Jane Sweater has a classic cropped roll neck that can be worn with jeans, or—my personal preference—paired with loungewear for a day spent at home.

$160 at Lake
