Whether it's her birthday or a holiday like Mother's Day or Christmas, we suggest you do things differently this time around. And by that we mean doing away with the basic bathrobe or rose-scented candle, the silk eye mask or the bouquet of flowers. This special occasion, get her something that she doesn’t have, something she didn’t even know she needed, something so unique and unexpected that you might even surprise yourself.
Whether it’s for your wife, girlfriend, mother, sister, best friend, grandmother, aunt’s hairdresser, or third cousin, we’ve got something in store for her. From a fully assembled cheese and charcuterie board to a compact iron and steamer to a make-your-own hot sauce kit, these are the gifts you wouldn’t think to get. Maybe it’s for Christmas, Hanukkah, her birthday, graduation, who knows—whatever the occasion, there’s a present for it. Think of these as the hidden gems of the holidays as we break the mold of traditional gift giving.
What are you waiting for? There’s no time like the present to shop for one. Seriously. So keep reading to check out the 36 best gifts for women this year and those to come.
