What do you buy adults that have everything?! It’s a struggle every year. Most people buy the things they need and often the things they want as well. Finding unique gifts they don’t necessarily know they need or want, that won’t break the bank, is the key. Lately, I’ve been looking at things I’ve purchased or that are on my wishlist for gift-giving inspiration. I’m not going to lie, I was a little shocked and how many different items I came up with for this gift guide for women. There’s a little something for everyone on the list!
Gift Guide for Women: Unique Gifts for the Ladies on Your List
Christmas gift ideas for women really depend on your comfort level and knowledge of the person’s likes and dislikes. Almost everything on my list is an easy item to buy for anyone. I’ve broken my gift guide for women down by category in case you aren’t comfortable purchasing clothes or appliances for the ladies on your list.
Clothing & Accessories | Women’s gift guide
Slippers – A quality pair of slippers is like heaven for your feet. The key is to get real wool-lined slippers because they stop your feet from sweating and last longer than synthetic. They also resist smells and I’d call that a win for everyone 😉 These are hands down my favorite slippers!
Sherpa Pullover – The coziest winter top you can buy. They are warm, and snuggly and they are supposed to be a bit oversized so they’re easy to estimate size if you’re unsure. Sherpa Pullovers are always a huge hit!
Pajamas and Lounge Wear – I have a wide selection for all seasons and needs. You might even say I’m an expert in comfy clothes. My favorites are the Cool Nights collection from this retailer. I love the shelf bra camis and the wide-leg pants the most but you really can’t go wrong with any of it.
Barefoot Dreams Anything – I jumped on the bandwagon during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and let me tell you, the hype is real. Now I fully understand why people obsess over the Barefoot Dreams blankets, Barefoot Dreams sweaters, and Barefoot Dreams socks. They are amazing quality and the softest thing I have ever felt.
Sweater Blazer – This sweater blazer is one of my favorite clothing purchases in a long time. It’s a classic, versatile piece that works for any age. The quality is amazing but the fit is large. Order 1 size down.
Spanx Leggings – Worth. The. Hype. These leggings are amazing quality. They suck you in, in all the right places. The faux leather and moto faux leather options are gorgeous without being over the top. If between sizes go up.
Etsy Jewelry – Etsy is a great place for unique items. I especially love their handmade artisan jewelry. Etsy has one-of-a-kind pieces from all over the world at every price point. It’s a guaranteed winner. These are some of my favorite shops and pieces: Volucelle, RadiantRooster, EmiConnerJewelry, softgoldco, simonefinivintage, eMerakiStudio, delezhen, lolabeanjewelry, MinimalVS, eMerakiGalaxy, CaitlynMinimalist,
Madewell Bag – I have had the Madewell Zip Top Small Transport Crossbody for 4 years now and I love it. It’s a classic style, the leather is great quality, and it’s the perfect medium size for everyday use. If you have an oversized bag lady on your list, the large transport tote is also gorgeous. The weekender is on my wish list for traveling.
Designer Smartwatch – I’m not a smartwatch person but if I was I’d be all over these new designer styles that look so classy! If you have a stylish, tech-savvy lady on your list, this is for her!
Beauty | Christmas Gift Ideas for Women
Quality Skin Care – I really love Ole Henricksen vitamin c products. They do amazing things for your skin tone, brightness, and firmness. Plus they are hydrating without being greasy.
Makeup Brushes – Nice quality make up brushes are a unique gift and something a lot of women wouldn’t purchase for themselves. Grab some individual brushes or a full brush set.
Makeup Organizer – These are super hot right now which is awesome because they are also SUPER practical! This one is big enough for everything and still really affordable and attractive. Plus it comes in several colors and sizes!
Makeup Remover Cloths– I love these. These makeup erasers work exceptionally well, you know you always are using a clean towel (no grubby little mitts have dried their hands on them #momlife), and they are way more affordable than the “name brand” version.
Silicone Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush – I have one and I wonder why I went so long without it. It’s great for use with your cleanser to do a deep clean and also amazing with your serums for getting them deep into your skin. Your face feels so clean/moisturized after using it. Highly recommend this one. You don’t need the uber high priced ones.
Home & Kitchen | Gift Guide for Women
Fuzzy Blanket – I have three of these fuzzy blankets now and I am obsessed with them. They have completely replaced all other blankets in our house. I would take 6 more if my husband wouldn’t lose his mind 😉 Get the king-size, and a second for yourself, you won’t regret it. I also LOVE these faux fur throw blankets and you can’t beat the price and tons of color options!
Weighted Blanket – I bought this weighted blanket for my husband who is a really bad sleeper and he loves it. He recently went on a business trip without it and it was an eye-opener on how great the weighted blanket really is. I “borrowed it” while he was gone and slept so much better than I normally do when he’s away. Fast forward a few months and I was buying a second for myself. It’s so comforting and cozy. We choose this brand without the cover because we hate being hot in bed. It’s very cool, great quality, and a really awesome price point. We figured it was better to start with a cheaper priced option to see if we liked it than going right for the $250 option and finding out it didn’t work for us. This option is also a great price for gifting!
Silk Pillowcase – This is something I have wanted to try but haven’t forked over the cash for. I’ve heard silk pillowcases do amazing things for your hair and skin. They’re one of those things that most people probably don’t have or know they need so it’s a great gift idea!
Nice Pillow – To piggyback on that, a quality pillow is another great gift item. It’s so funny because we have no problem spending a lot of money on a mattress but most people balk at spending money on a pillow. It’s really the same thing and the right pillow can make all the difference in your quality of sleep. This pillow is a good option for gifting since it is adjustable!
Packing Cubes – Have someone who loves to travel (or a super organizer) on your list? These packing cubes are awesome for keeping everything organized while you’re on the road! They’re highly rated, come with a ton of different size cubes, and are available in several colors.
Insulated Wine Glass – This wouldn’t be a gift guide for women without something wine-related, am I right?! I have 2 of these for keeping white wine cold in the summer but the key is they are spill-proof! Seriously, these wine tumblers are the best out there because the lid actually closes!
Instapot – Another item and have heard great things about but haven’t tried yet. I’m just trying to get into using the crockpots. Once I get used to those I might try out an Instapot. They are definitely on a lot of people’s Christmas list!
Roomba – This one is on my husband’s and my Christmas list! I’d give anything to not have to worry about the floors as often HAHA. I’ve heard great things about the Eufy Vacuum and the moderately priced Roomba model both of which are still a big gift, but I think it will go over really well! I know appliances and vacuums are generally looked at as a gift guide for women no-no, but one that does the work for you sounds pretty great to me!
Experiences & Things To Do | Christmas Gift Ideas for Women
Fab Fit Fun Subscription – Fab Fit Fun is a subscription service delivered 4 times a year. Each box is packed with 8-10 full-size, premium products valued at over $200 (cost is just $49)! This is a super fun, super unique gift idea for the hard to buy for women on your list!
Books – I have a long list of my favorite books on my Amazon Storefront. A few others that are a solid addition to this gift guide for women are: Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis, Homebody and Magnolia Table by Joanna Gaines, Cravings: Hungry for More by Chrissy Teigen, and Whiskey in a Teacup by Reese Witherspoon.
Staycation – Get a gift certificate from a cool semi-local hotel, throw in a gift card to a nice restaurant, and maybe a bottle of wine and you’ve got the makings for a perfect night away! My favorite sites to book through are Trip Advisor (especially the vacation rentals!) and Travelocity.
Trip – Want to splurge? Get them a travel voucher for a destination of their choice! It’s safe to say this is something everyone wants once this Pandemic winds down and we have some freedom back! Or if you know their dream destination, plan out the whole trip and maybe even tag along! Again, my favorite sites to book through are Trip Advisor and Travelocity.
Day Off + Gift Card – Probably one of the most appreciated items on this gift guide for women. I know I could just use some time to myself every now and then. If they have kids, offer to babysit and give them a gift card to a spa, local attraction, or just a visa gift card to do with as they please!
