This holiday season looks different from the year’s past, but that’s all the more reason to celebrate those near and dear with a carefully-chosen gift. From pocket-sized luxuries to major extravagances, a gift can show the most important people in your life that you’re thinking of them—no matter your budget. Here at Vogue, we’ve assembled 60 incredible gifts for women that will be sure to impress.
Case in point: No outdoors enthusiast could refuse a pair of shearling-lined boots, while those who take pride in their well-stocked beauty cabinet will surely delight in a limited-edition glittering lipstick. Still feeling overwhelmed? You can’t go wrong with something classic, like a chic leather card case or a sumptuous plaid scarf. In an uncertain year, thoughtful gifts will go a long way, maybe with a nice, handwritten note, too.
Here, 60 incredible gifts for women to unwrap this year.
Classics for Everyone on Your List
Finding that perfect gift for the special someone in your life may seem daunting, but rest assured these gifts have earned the title of classic for a reason. Métier’s card case, handcrafted in a small atelier in Italy, is practical but not at all boring, while Rodin’s tried-and-true face oil will leave everyone, quite literally, beaming.
Beauty Bounty for the Makeup Obsessive
No matter what type of cosmetics enthusiast she may be, she’ll most certainly fall hard for any one of these beauty goods, like Westman Atelier’s collection of made-in-Japan brushes and Dior’s limited-edition blush, which is embossed with busts dressed in the house’s haute couture gowns. Should you want to spoil her, a stamped leather case from Hunting Season and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is the perfect place to stash it all.
Swag for Fashion Fanatics
It can be a challenge to shop for someone with particular taste, but some items are guaranteed to make any fashion fan smile. This season we could all use a little “More Joy” and there’s no better way to spread that message than a face mask from Christopher Kane. Alternatively, who could resist a pair of dazzling rhinestone-encrusted hearts as stud earrings from Balenciaga.
Gear for the Top Chef
Both kitchen newcomers and cooking aficionados would appreciate a few chic culinary supplies to stock their kitchens this season. Let Material’s 9-piece set spruce up her kitchen countertops, while a colorful cast iron pot from Le Creuset and a printed apron to match would be sure to make any woman smile.
Conscious Presents for the Sustainably Minded
Whether she shops sustainably or you’re looking to shop more responsibly this holiday season, these conscious but covetable gifts for women make it pretty easy to give an eco-friendly gift. Skip the packaging and gift wrap with shampoo bars from the Package Free Shop, or say goodbye to single-use items by giving a logo-stamped reusable water bottle from Prada. When shopping for a classic gift like pajamas, sneakers, or jewelry, consider one that’s made from recycled or responsible materials, like Nike’s newest running shoes made of plastic bottles and scraps or Laura Lombardi’s recycled brass chain link bracelet.
Special Treasures for the Woman Who Has Everything
Is there anyone harder to shop for than the friend who always seems to have the latest and greatest? Instead of trying to get your hands on a limited-edition drop before she does, turn instead to a singular keepsake, such as a hand-carved facial massager made from Teotihuacán obsidian and mahogany wood or a luxe walnut domino set (equipped with streamlined stainless steel silver pieces) from Brunello Cucinelli. The award for the most epic present, however, goes to Chanel’s perfume poured into a Baccarat crystal bottle which has been infused with 24K gold powder.
Feel-Good Pleasures for the Homebody
As we continue to social distance and burrow away indoors, who could say no to a gift meant to be enjoyed at home? There’s an XXL candle from Diptyque, which will fill rooms with the sweet scent of rose, Entireworld knit pants (cozy and chic), and a journal complete with writing prompts and self-care rituals.
Fashionable Decor for the Stylishly Inclined
Surprise your fashionable friends and family members by gifting arty home decor made by the designers behind her favorite ready to wear and accessory brands. Now that we’re spending more time in our homes than ever before, a sculptural candlestick from Anissa Kermiche, a warming scent from Loewe, or a cozy pillow from Bode will be endlessly appreciated.
Outdoorsy Delights for the Cottage Core Camper
Those who have been staying in the country, like to go camping, or who simply have embraced prairie style would be pleased to unwrap a few of these wonderful gifts. A sleek, stainless steel, 3-piece bar set from High Camp would allow her to bring a cocktail or bottle of wine on any adventure. It even comes complete with two detachable tumblers to share. A pair of shearling-lined weather-proof boots, a classic cable knit sweater, or pair of colorful wooly socks would give the gift of maximal coziness, while a soothing bath soak infused with rosehip oil and jasmine would provide a spa-like experience following a day of winter excursions.
Must-Haves for the Exercise Enthusiast
Fitness fanatics will welcome these sophisticated additions to their workout routines. From marble dumbbells worthy of display to a slip-free yoga mat, these gifts will ensure those on your list start the New Year off on a healthy, happy note.
