Best gifts for the lady in your life

Published

Picking the perfect gift is never an easy task. You desperately want to impress and you’ve thought it through carefully, but what if they don’t like it? That’s a lot of pressure for anyone to handle.

Your best option is getting something original that breaks away from the tired old cliché gifts that you have probably given time and time again. This shows that you’ve actually put the effort into choosing it. That’s what everyone wants really — to feel like you know them and you listen to them.

It really is tough to get it right, and we could all do with some help. That’s where we come in. We’ve put together a list of the very best gifts for every type of woman, whether she’s obsessed with the latest tech gear, is looking for an excuse to unwind, or is always on the go. All of them would make great gifts and a big impression. Now is your time to shine.

Here are our suggestions for the best gifts for women: 

iPhone XS — best for the Apple junkie

This one isn’t really a bold idea from us. We’re happy to admit that. The point is that if she is into Apple and the iPhone, then this gift is going to be a massive hit. The iPhone XS has a beautiful edge-to-edge OLED screen, it’s fast charging, and has received rave reviews. With three colours and a Max option, it’s a true step up from the X and will seriously impress any recipient. 

Instant Pot — best for the wannabe foodie

Instant Pots are everywhere at the moment, and that’s because they are revolutionising how we cook. This super trendy instant pot speeds up the cooking process and uses up to 70% less energy. And oh yeah, most importantly it produces nutritious healthy food in a convenient and consistent fashion. The 7-in-1 Instant Pot Duo comes in three sizes and can sauté, steam, warm, cook rice, pressure cook, and slow cook. Basically, there’s no recipe this device can’t handle. 

Kindle Paperwhite — best for the bookworm

The all-new Kindle Paperwhite is thinner, lighter, and has twice the storage of previous models. It’s also waterproof, which is pretty cool. The latest Kindle is also now twinned with Audible, so you can pair it with Bluetooth headphones or speakers to listen to your story. The all-important battery is another big plus. A single charge lasts weeks, not hours, meaning she should never have her reading session interrupted. And there are over 5.5 million books to choose from. 

Chic Watch — best for the stylish

A classy watch is pretty much guaranteed to be a good move. OK so nothing is guaranteed in the gift giving business but you are giving yourself the best possible chance for success, particularly if you choose an MVMT item. MVMT watches are known for their sleek design, and come in a wide range of colours and styles to match every taste. And just think about it, buy her a watch she loves and every time she checks on the time she’ll think of you.

Essential Oil Diffuser — best for the stressed

Self-care is more than a trend and that’s a good thing, because we could all do with a little TLC from time to time. The QuietGuts Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser helps to fight back against mental fatigue, stress, and anxiety, offering positive vibes in the form of steady mists and customised lighting for a truly relaxing situation. Here’s another tip: grab some essential oils too, so she is ready to go.

Ring Light Makeup Mirror — best for the time short

Morning routines can be stressful and any help you can provide to make the process more streamlined will be well received. This wall mounted, 8-inch mirror claims that its ring light mimics natural sunlight for the most accurate reflections possible. The light also turns on via motion sensing — so she can sit and stand freely without covering the stainless steel in fingerprints. Basically, you get this for anyone and it will reflect very well on you.

Silk Sheet Set — best for the napper

You might be her favourite person, but you are probably playing second fiddle to her bed. A set of silk sheets will make her love her bed even more. But she’ll love *you* more too, so maybe it’s worth it. Silk pillowcases are also said to be good for skin and hair, an added bonus that we can all enjoy.

iPad Pro — best for the creative

If her projects involve drawing or graphic design, then she’ll be so happy to have the iPad Pro accompanying her, especially as the Pro is compatible with the Apple Pencil. The iPad weighs one pound and lasts for 10 hours on one charge, so taking it on the go is a no brainer. 

Fitbit Charge 3 — best for the health conscious

The Fitbit Charge 3 rocks a sleek OLED screen and comes in an assortment of classy, muted colour options. The Charge 3’s personalised fitness score will help her to track her progress and monitor her heart rate, as well as track sleep and count steps and calories. So not only does it look good, but it will help her to get fitter and stay healthy. Everyone is a winner.

Fire TV Stick — best for the movie critic

The best-selling Fire TV Stick, with the Alexa voice remote, provides access to over 10,000 apps, games and Alexa skills, including Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, Netflix, and more. If the lady in your life is obsessed with movies or loves to get lost in a new series, then this is a great option. The Fire TV Stick should be top of her list if she wants the latest in entertainment technology.

DNA Testing Kit — best for the curious

This is the perfect gift for those eager to learn more about their family. As an added bonus, the 23andMe kit also offers a health screening kit. All you have to do is mail in a saliva sample and you’ll get a full breakdown of your ancestry.
