Southern Living: The Best Gifts For Women

Southern Living: The Best Gifts For Women

 Unique ways to show her you care, no matter the occasion

Shopping for women—whether that be for celebrating holidays, birthdays, or milestones—is all about finding a gift that she really wants but may not buy for herself. “All good etiquette, including gift-giving etiquette, starts with being observant of others,” says North Carolina-based etiquette instructor Sydney Dunn. “Pay attention to the people around you and try to choose gifts that will make their lives easier or more lovely.”  

Whether you’re shopping for your mom, wife, daughter, sister, best friend, coworker, or any other leading lady in your life, start by thinking about her hobbies and interests. “I think the most thoughtful and meaningful gifts are ones that perfectly speak to the giftee,” says Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy's trend expert. “If you’re not sure where to start, consider unique and well-crafted items that match back to her interests and hobbies.”

Taking these insights into account, we rounded up a list of the best gifts for every woman in your life, from the fitness fanatic to the fashionista, the avid home cook to the outdoors enthusiast (and yes, even the woman who already seems to have it all). We’ve integrated many Southern brands and makers into our list, and, because we're firm believers that a great gift doesn’t have to break the bank, you’ll find dozens of gifts on our list that fall under $50.

Rosé Eye Patches

Especially when paired with a bottle of rosé, these playful yet hydrating eye gels make an excellent gift for any woman in your life. Formulated with antioxidant-rich resveratrol, strawberry extract, and hydrating hyaluronic acid, the gels are intended to give the undereyes a refresh. Patchology recommends keeping them chilled in the fridge before use.
