It can feel so stressful when you have to buy gifts for people that you don’t know very well (or even when you do know them well, especially those who are hard to shop for!) Thankfully, there are some no-fail gifts that almost anyone would be thrilled to receive.

Here’s my criteria for our annual holiday gift guides:

  • gifts are in a variety of price points (higher priced gifts are great for group gifting!)
  • highly rated
  • appeals to a wide variety of people
  • most are ‘tried and true’ suggestions of products and items I love

Heck, here’s items on the teen gift guide I want for myself. This is a judgement-free zone, we love and appreciate everyone and live by the mantra ‘you do you, boo!’

Clothes for her

Clothes are a bit more iffy when you are buying Christmas presents. The best way to buy clothes as Christmas gifts is to think about comfort first. Buy her slippers, PJs, and any other things that help her snuggle and relax at home. If she’s into sports, get her something with her favorite sports team on it.

Best gifts for women FAQs

Here are some questions people often ask about buying the best gifts for women.

How much should I spend on a Christmas present?

This all depends on the occasion of the gift. If you don’t know the person very well, plan on spending about $25 or less on the gift. If the recipient is someone close to you, it would be more reasonable to spend in the $50 range.

What are the best types of gifts to buy women?

It’s always best to ask what their favorite types of gifts are. If you don’t know them very well, ask people who do for suggestions. It’s more thoughtful when you buy them something they love.

Gifts that help people relax are always a big hit, as well as new tech gadgets or things people can use around the house.

What is a good special gift for a woman?

The most special gift to give someone doesn’t have to be expensive. Think about what she wants more than anything. Does she work really hard? She might be craving relaxation and self-care, so a facial, neck massager, or some at-home spa treatments might be amazing. The most special gift will be something that brings her joy.

Hopefully you’ve found some great gift ideas for the ladies in your life. Whether it’s your wife, girlfriend, sister, daughter or mother there’s so many thoughtful gifts here that will make her feel special and loved.
