48 Best Gifts for Women in 2021


No matter the occasion—and especially around the holidays—it’s important to celebrate those women nearest and dearest to you with a carefully chosen gift. From a pocket-size luxury to a thoughtful token, a gift, no matter the cost or scale, can show someone that you’re thinking of them.

Shopping for a fashion enthusiast? Who could refuse a new padded cassette bag from Bottega Veneta or cozy-chic shearling slides from JW Anderson? Looking for something for someone who takes pride in their well-stocked beauty cabinet? They’ll surely delight in a limited edition lipstick. Still feeling overwhelmed? You can’t go wrong with something classic, like a pair of leather driving gloves or a gold bauble and a luxe velvet jewelry box to stash it in. A thoughtful gift will go a long way, maybe with a lovely, handwritten holiday card too.

All these ideas and 48 other incredible gifts for women, below.

Special Treasures for the Woman Who Has Everything

Is there anyone harder to shop for than the friend who always seems to have the latest and greatest?

There’s also Kindred Black’s artisanal hand-blown glass bottle of slow beauty face serum that she’ll want to keep displayed on the vanity.
