Because the lady in your life is undoubtedly great, she’ll appreciate this boost of encouragement in paperback form. Sure, it’s technically in the self-help section, but it’s more of a “show off how fantastic you are” guide.


ban.do Portable Battery

We’re all a little power-hungry, right? Well, at least in terms of juicing up our mobile devices. This statement portable battery has two USB outputs and a heaping-helping of battery life to get even the busiest of gals through the day.


Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

If this hair dryer looks like it walked clean out of the future, it’s because it did. The new Dyson boasts intelligent heat control and high-speed power. Meaning: Your bathroom won’t smell like burnt hair and her drying time will be cut in half. Win, win.

For the girl on-the-go or the girl (like me) who uses literally any zippered container as a purse. This leather travel set is perfect for packing toiletries for an upcoming getaway, while looking polished enough to carry like a clutch.


Anthropologie Bronzed French Press

A handsome addition to any couple’s kitchen, this is a classic, “here’s a gift for you that’s also for us” option. Bonus idea: Pair it with her favorite local coffee beans and a home-cooked breakfast.


Raden A22 Carry

Joy to the jetsetters and wanderlusters on your list. Raden has outsmarted any travel woes with tech-driven luggage that features weight sensors, phone chargers, and location trackers. Oh! And did I mention how sleek it looks?

These appropriately named “Super Girl” frames are a modern twist to the retro cat-eye we all know (and love). The leading lady in your life will certainly feel the glamorous effects of these impressively priced shades.


Bose QuietControl 30 Wireless Headphones

I got my paws on the QuietControl 30 headphones soon after their release and am still in awe of the noise-controlling versus noise-cancelling feature. And yes, you caught me, I previously did not know the difference! With its lightweight design, I often forget they’re even on my neck – until I immediately raise the noise-control level when entering the subway.



The fitness junkie in your life will love the on-demand personal training sessions from the comfort of her phone. As much as I don’t want to say it’s the Uber of fitness apps…it’s the Uber of fitness apps. Even better? You won’t have to guess her size or favorite workout clothing brand.


Juniper Books Drop Caps Book Series

The 90s are back and so is another season of retro-inspired gifting. If you’re not in the market to get your lady a Nintendo 64 (which honestly, is a top notch idea), this colorful, customizable Drop Caps series will appeal to any nostalgic book lover.

Stance Women’s Holiday Gift Set

Once upon a time, receiving socks would be on the low end of the gifting spectrum. Until you fast forward a few years – and lost socks – later. This year, you can’t go wrong with spreading holiday cheer by gifting this festive box set from Stance.


Serafina Personalized Mini Nameplate Necklace

I’m going to let you in on a not-so-secret secret: Women love personalized gifts. And what’s more personal than her name? She’ll think of you every time she puts on what’s sure to be her new signature necklace.


Custom Frame Job from Framebridge

There’s just something about a framed photo that feels extra special – even if it’s the #tbt photo you posted on Instagram last week. Framebridge makes custom framing easy: pick a frame, paste a link to any Instagram photo, and prepare to delight.
