1. For the one in need of new earbuds: Apple AirPods Pro
The latest model of Apple’s very well-received AirPods Pro have noise cancellation technology, a better-fitting design and are sweat and water-resistant. They’re beloved by Amazon buyers, too, for their light comfortable fit and decent sound quality. In fact, they're our favorite buds for iPhone users!
2. For the woman who’s always put together: Revlon’s Hot Air Brush
A miracle tool beloved by women young and old, Revlon’s one-step brush dries and volumizes at the same time, giving you salon-quality hair straight at home. Amazon users rave over the brush, with almost 325,000 buyers giving it an average of 4.6 stars. Available in seven different colors and with three heat-speed settings, the Revlon Hot Air Brush is one of those rare hair tools that somehow works for everyone.
3. For the woman who loves her home: Airomé Sonic Diffuser
A well-reviewed essential oils diffuser, Airomé's diffuser has a beautiful gray glaze and a quatrefoil pattern. Amazon users love the way it is lit from the inside, as well as its stylish design. They also say it’s “easy to clean” and “easy to use,” which is always a bonus. Plus, it's our favorite essential oil diffuser as it's both portable and extremely quiet, perfect for a cozy night in.
4. For the woman who’s always on her feet: A Renpho Foot Massager
A foot massager is one of those things that no one ever really buys themselves but that everyone really appreciates getting. Renpho’s foot massager is heated all the way around the foot and comes with three different massage modes: Full, instep and bottom. All the pressure levels can be adjusted to suit the user’s tastes (which we loved), and the massager even comes with a remote control, so your gitee can sit back and let their worries—and their aches—slide away. Amazon users give it an average of 4.4 stars, with some buyers noting in their reviews that it’s especially great for plantar fasciitis sufferers.
5. For the woman who hates to clean: Eufy 11s
If the woman you’re buying for hates to clean consider picking up Anker’s Eufy robot vacuum cleaner. Widely beloved on Amazon, more than 50,000 buyers gave it a 4.5-star rating, writing in their reviews that it does a “great job,” is “easy to clean,” and is especially effective at picking up pet hair. It's also our favorite budget vacuum thanks to its excellent suction capabilities and ability to navigate to hard-to-reach areas.
6. For the woman who loves a good mani/pedi: A UV nail lamp
Looking for a gift for someone who spends hours at the spa? Maybe someone who’s always griping about how they need to get their nails done? Consider a UV nail lamp, which will allow that favorite woman in your life to do salon-quality gel manicures from the privacy of their own home. Amazon users love SUNUV’s lamp, which can handle both fingernails and toenails and has a smart sensor to let the user know when their gel is set. Amazon buyers also call it “fast” and “convenient,” and for the price—less than the cost of one gel manicure in most places—you really can’t go wrong.
7. For the woman who's curious about her family history: AncestryDNA
Every family’s got its own historian. They’re the person who knows all the second cousins’ names and can tell you just wherein “the old country” your relatives came from. This year, consider picking up that person an AncestryDNA test so they can get to know themselves—and their family—that much better. The tests come in three tiers, with the most basic offering going for just $59 right now. We loved AncestryDNA as it was easy to use and gave stellar results just within a few weeks. Your giftee can discover where their ancestors come from and maybe even connect with a long-lost cousin!
8. For the light sleeper: A sleep mask
Is your giftee always complaining about her lack of sleep? Snag her Nidra’s eye mask, which is lightweight and completely blocks out all light. It’s also contoured to the face, meaning sleepers can blink comfortably and they won’t wake up actually looking like they’ve worn a mask on their face all night. Amazon users say it’s great for side-sleepers or couples where one partner might like to stay up later or sleep with the lights on.
9. For the stressed-out woman: A weighted Gravity blanket
Weighted blankets have been a hot commodity for a few years now, but that doesn’t mean everyone’s tried one yet. If you’ve got a high-strung relative who always complains about not getting enough sleep, consider picking them up with a weighted Gravity blanket. They’ll thank you for it. This 20-pound blanket comes in three colors and fits a twin bed. (There are different weights and sizes available, as well) Gridded stitching helps the weight stay evenly distributed, and the blanket’s cover is machine washable. It's also our favorite weighted blanket as it provided just the right amount of pressure without feeling suffocating.
10. For the woman who loves to cook: The Always Pan
If you use Instagram, you’ve seen the Always Pan. Beautifully colored and designed, the Always Pan replaces eight different pieces of cookware in your kitchen—great if your giftee is low on cabinet space. We liked how “versatile” the pan is, saying “If your kitchen routine involves simple, quick meals, then the standard Always Pan will do the trick.”
11. For the fitness enthusiast: A pair of lululemon leggings
lululemon leggings are popular for a reason: They’re not only great-fitting, stylish pants, but they’re also available in a whole range of lengths and cuts. The brand’s Wunder Under leggings are yoga classics and would make a great gift for anyone who works out indoors or outdoors.
12. For the woman who loves to learn: A Masterclass subscription
Since its inception, Masterclass has been offering up celebrity- and academic-led courses intent on spreading information and education to its subscribers. Its base of classes is incredibly broad, and subscribers can learn from everyone from astronauts to RuPaul. When we tested out Masterclass, we found it “incredibly motivating" and worth the money. Plus, you can pick up two memberships for the cost of one right now!
13. For the one who owns every gadget from Apple: Apple Watch Series 7
If they don't own one already, an Apple Watch would be a fantastic gift for the one who is always on their iPhone. We tested the popular Apple Watch Series 7 and it is the best smartwatch we've ever tested, thanks to its stellar fitness tracking and blood oxygen sensor and larger display. Give the gift of our favorite smartwatch so they can have all of their notifications, music, and texts at their fingertips all the time.
14. For the health nut: Philips Airfryer XXL
Air fryers are one of the trendiest (and most useful) kitchen gadgets, as they offer a way to make home-cooked fried food that’s healthier than your local McDonalds. The Phillips Airfryer XXL is the best air fryer we tested and would make a great gift for anyone who likes to cook and eat semi-healthy, and of course, has extra kitchen counter space. From frozen fries to hamburgers to Nashville hot chicken, this gadget could handle it all.
15. For the woman who loves a label: A Michael Kors’ Logo Wristlet
A best-selling item on the Michael Kors site, this logo wristlet is the epitome of understated luxury. An especially great item for those who travel quite a bit, this wallet has 17 interior card slots and a dedicated phone pocket, as well as a convenient wrist strap. It’s available in six different colors, and you can even add a complimentary monogram. Now that’s a thoughtful gift.
16: For the woman who loves candles: Capri Blue’s Iridescent Jar Candle
A tried and true item beloved by Anthropologie shoppers for years, Capri Blue’s Iridescent Jar Candle is the perfect candle to give to someone you love. It’s elegant and beautifully fragranced, and it’s just nice enough that the recipient might not have purchased it for themselves in the past. It's also one of our favorites!
17. For the woman in need of some self-care: Parachute’s classic robe
Everyone deserves a nice robe, but most people don’t actually want to spend the money on themselves to get one. (There’s a reason everyone goes nuts over a good hotel robe: They don’t have something similar at home.) Parachute’s classic robe is one of our absolute favorites, with our reviewer calling it “extremely luxurious, comfortable, and functional” with “high-end construction [that] makes me think it will last for years.” Consider it an investment in the serenity and sanity of whoever you’re buying it for, even if that’s you.
18. For the photography lover: Polaroid Hi-Print
Got a relative who’s always taking family snaps but doesn’t have anything on her walls? Consider helping them break free from digital purgatory by purchasing them this cute little Polaroid pocket printer. The sleek Hi-Print model uses Bluetooth technology to sync to a user’s phone so they can easily print out 2x3 photo prints in just about 50 seconds. The prints can be stuck anywhere, and with the Hi-Print mobile app, users can add borders, filters or even emoticons to their photos before they print them. It’s also pocket-sized and portable, just in case you didn’t think it could get even more fun and handy.
19. For the woman who loves to read: A Kindle Paperwhite
If you’re looking for an e-reader, you can’t do much better than the Kindle Paperwhite. Now in its 11th generation, the latest Paperwhite has a 6.8-inch display, adjustable warm light and up to 10 full weeks of battery life, which means you could probably take it to the moon and back and still not have to charge it. Its glare-free display is meant to mimic reading a real book, something that libraries love, considering many across the country offer e-book checkouts along with their regular paper book selections. Pick up a Paperwhite now, and you’ll get four months of Kindle Unlimited as well.
