Best Gifts for Women Who Have Everything

Etsy

Coming up with gift ideas for women who already seem to have everything is no easy feat. If she's hard to shop for, a unique, thoughtful, and personal present that she'll actually use is the way to go.

To get you inspired, we've rounded up the best gifts for women for every celebration. Whether you need a great gift for her birthday, Mother's Day, or just because, these unique gift ideas are sure to impress. We've got options for the aspiring home cook, someone who desperately needs a spa day, and even the person who's always losing track of their keys. We also tapped two gifting experts—Laura Jenning, founder and CEO of Knack, and Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy’s trend expert—for tips on how to choose a more thoughtful gift for women.

“Gifts that come with a story or a ‘why’ behind them will always be the most memorable,” says Jenning. “Whenever possible, make your gift reflect what you know about her. What does she like? Is she a coffee or a tea drinker? Does she spend quiet reflective time alone or lots of time with her family and friends? What have you noticed about her that can be reflected in her gift?”

With these insights in mind, we found the very best gifts for all types of women. Keep reading to discover all of our recommendations and shop our favorite ideas below.

Questions You Might Ask

How much should you spend on a gift? 

Figuring out how much money to spend on a gift is hard when there aren’t any set budgets or rules (like in white elephant gift exchanges). There’s no easy formula to figuring out an exact dollar amount, but there are a few things you can consider to come up with an appropriate number.

“In general, we find that the average gift for women is just under $100,” says Jenning. “However, this number will vary depending on the relationship you have with her, the occasion, and your own personal circumstances. Even for people very close to you, an inexpensive ‘just thinking about you’ gift can be just as memorable as a big, expensive birthday gift because it arrives when she’s not expecting it.”

What should you put in a gift basket for women?

If you’d prefer to give your recipient multiple presents (or you can’t decide on just one item), you might want to create a DIY gift basket. “When opting to curate a gift box as a gift, it’s important to consider their individual taste and interests,” says Johnson. “If you happen to know what their hobbies are, look for something that speaks to that—like a personalized mug, artisanal coffee, and a pour-over for the at-home barista or personalized garden tools, handmade ceramic pot, and garden markers for the person who loves to be outdoors in their garden.”

To make the most memorable gift basket or box, Jenning suggests including an odd number of items since it’ll be more pleasing to the eye. She also recommends sticking to a theme (like movie night or spa day, for example) and incorporating something with “immediate gratification” like cookies, chocolate, or another sweet treat. “It gives the recipient something to do with the gift right away,” she says.

What are some gift ideas for women that you don't know very well?

Shopping for someone you don’t know very well can be challenging, which is why you should look for versatile gifts that anyone can enjoy. “Cozy blankets, candles, and notebooks are always appreciated, and you don’t have to worry about food allergies,” says Jenning.

“If you don’t know her very well, another meaningful approach is to give her things that are special to you,” Jenning adds. “Do you have a favorite cause you like to support? A delicious food made in your hometown that you can share with her? Or just a little something that you find useful and you think she might, too?”

And when all else fails, you can always go the gift card route. “When buying a gift card, consider supporting a local restaurant or small business,” says Isom Johnson. “These types of gifts can make a real impact and might not be something your loved one would typically treat themselves to.”
