It’s time to celebrate the loved one in your life — and this time, you just can’t get her more jewelry or another book. For this special occasion, you want to truly surprise your mother, sister, daughter, wife, girlfriend or BFF with a unique gift she deserves.
In need of some inspiration? Here’s a list of five great gift ideas for all types of women in your life: the fashionista, fit girl, chocolate lover, outdoors(wo)man and boss babe.
1. Essentials for a Killer Wardrobe
Ever heard of Nasty Gal? If not, it’s a “badass to the core” online clothing boutique for the flawed “girl in progress” who just wants to be herself. Nasty Gal started with a simple eBay account in a San Francisco apartment and has since evolved into a worldwide retail brand.
Netflix even shared the story of founder Sophia Amoruso in the series Girlboss, which was based on how Amoruso transformed herself into a mega girl boss. A Nasty Gal piece is perfect for women upon the freshest trends and likes to “keep it 100% nasty.” So, start shopping nastygal.com for its clothing, dresses, shoes, and collections designed for knockout looks.
2. Gym Membership or Fitness Classes
The payoff of working out at fitness boutiques like Orangetheory or local yoga studios generally means enhanced physical fitness and mental dexterity, but often at a high price. Gym franchises and fancy studios aren’t cheap and can cost upwards of $100 to $200 per month. Maybe you can’t afford that life-transforming Peloton, but you can give the gift of health and wellness. For the fitness fanatic or yogi in your life, pay for one month of the class membership or a 10-class package.
3. Cute Confections
Maggie Louise Confections, a specialty chocolate boutique, offers more than hand-painted gourmet chocolates. Indeed, their premier candies are a gifting experience. If the lady in your life has a sweet tooth, then shop Maggie Louise Confections. Checking out the super cute themes is just as fun as giving and receiving. You’ll find rosé, latte, avocado toast, fries before guys and beauty-themed gift boxes. It’s chocolate so tasty and chic that it most definitely deserves a post on Instagram.
4. Simple Sleeveless and Training Tanks
As temperatures start to rise, so does the urge to get outside and soak in the sunshine. From running and gardening to yoga and kickball at the park, people take their workouts and activities outdoors during the spring and summer. If you’re shopping for a gal who loves to be active, gift her with a cute sleeveless top or tank top. A new tank, along with the warmer weather, will motivate her to keep doing what she loves. Tops come in different colors, styles, and sizes, so you can choose one that fits her personality and lifestyle.
5. Office Accessories for Women Making Moves
Create & Cultivate is an online platform and community for the modern working woman. Visit its shop featuring colorful tools, including notebooks, planners, calendars and clipboards, designed for notetaking and career planning. Of course, every creator, entrepreneur, and the boss needs the right supplies for chasing her career dreams. To keep her phone fashionable customized phone cases might be another idea.
In need of another gift idea? Then buy her a ticket to attend the latest Create & Cultivate conference, where she can hear from powerhouse panel speakers, experience mic-drop moments, connect with other driven female professionals, and so much more.
Bring a Smile to Her Face
With these ideas in mind, you can feel confident knowing you’re giving the special woman in your life a gift that she will love. Gift-giving should be a fun experience — not stressful. Part of the celebration is the excitement of knowing you’re bringing a smile to her face. Happy shopping!
