Stumped on coming up with the best gift ideas for women who have everything? With Valentine's Day approaching, Mother's Day in the spring, and birthdays, anniversaries, and wedding showers always on the horizon, we’re here to help you find the best gifts for women in 2020.
Getting the women in your life a great gift comes with a lot of anxiety. You want to get your mom the perfect Mother's Day present to say “thank you” for everything she’s done for you, but what sums up a lifetime of thankfulness? You certainly want to impress your sister with a birthday gift that says “sisterhood” more than “friendship,” and you’re probably looking for something special to give your best girlfriend at her wedding shower to make her think of you whenever she looks at or uses it. You definitely want a Valentine's Day idea for your wife so special that she’ll be singing your praises for years to come. But what exactly should that present be?
The best gifts for women—as with the best gifts for most people—are a perfect combination of unique and thoughtful. You want to get the women in your life items that feel personal, but they can’t be original to the point of uselessness (save those for Christmas white elephant parties, of course). A kitschy present is great only if the person will truly appreciate the kitschiness. Otherwise, you should focus on gift ideas for women that they’ll really use. (If you value usefulness over all else, gift card ideas are always an option, too.)
Actually, you don’t have to do any thinking at all: We’ve done it all for you. We’ve rounded up the best holiday and everyday gifts for women of all kinds—from the amateur hairstylist to the jet-setting traveler and the fashion-forward executive to the playful and young at heart. (We’ve even got a list of gifts for new moms.) Whether you’re on a budget or able to spend a little more, whether it’s Christmas, a birthday, an anniversary, retirement, or just a day to do something nice, you will definitely find something just right for you and your lovely ladies on this list of gift ideas for women.
Here are 2020’s best gift ideas for hard-to-shop-for women, romantic gifts for the love of your life, and unique gifts for women who have everything already.
