Almost everyone has made the mistake of waiting until the last minute to find the perfect Christmas gift for her. And with Christmas right around the corner, time is running out. We have all felt the struggle; let's be real, there is no one-gift-fits-all for every girl out there.
The good news is:
We did the research and picked the very best gifts for women so you don’t have to (and each one of them can be purchased online). We even went a step further to categorize them based on her interests.
Make your Christmas shopping easy this year by checking out our list of the Best Christmas Gifts for Her 2017:
Not only are these slippers cute, they’re heated through a USB cable. One size fits most.
Sadly, the battery life on these slippers is limited.
Why she’ll love it: Whether she works from home, or would rather just stay in for an evening of marathon series watching, these are a sweet pair of slippers to have. They’re super plush and fit just about any size foot (up to size 12). It takes 1-2 hours to charge these slippers and the heat lasts for 2-3 hours on very warm or 3-4 hours for just warm. That should get her through part of the day. And if she’s near a USB charging source, she can wear them while they change. Now, admit it, you’re a little jealous.
Price: You’ll pay $40 for a wireless pair or a few bucks less for a wired pair. We think it’s a good idea to spend the extra bucks. And, if you have more in your budget, why not splash out on a slanket or a bathrobe too? You know she’ll love it.
A quality 10-speed stand mixer that makes cooking and baking easier. Comes with a 5-Qt stainless steel bowl, three attachments, and a one-year warranty.
This mixer is extremely heavy, weighing in at 26 lbs.
Why she'll love it: Whoever you give this one-of-a-kind gift to, be prepared for tears of joy. The KitchenAid Stand Mixer is something most women dream of owning. This product comes with a 5-Qt stainless steel bowl and three attachments including a flat beater, dough hook, and wire whip. The best part is, the bowl and attachments are dishwasher safe for easy clean-up. That feature alone will make her extremely happy.
Choose from over 30 colors to find the one that best fits her style and personality. If you can't decide which color option she'll like best, we suggest Almond Cream, White on White, or Blue Willow.
Price: The KitchenAid Stand Mixers are known to last a lifetime. And, sometimes longer. Some women use KitchenAid Mixers that have been passed down from their grandmothers. So, although it's an expensive gift, it's one she'll cherish for a lifetime. As a bonus, it comes with a one-year warranty if you have any concerns.
This whimsical fruity and floral blend hails from fashion icon Vera Wang and comes in a beautiful bottle. And, the price is right.
There are some who believe this fragrance isn’t concentrated enough.
Why she’ll love it: While everyone has personal preferences when it comes to perfume, so many women from so many different walks of life fall in love with this one. It’s as appropriate for a teenager as it is for more mature women – and it transitions smoothly between daytime and evening wear. The younger generation will fall in love with the bottle, while the older can’t help but enjoy the comfort of quality that comes with all things Vera Wang.
Price: Depending on the Amazon seller, you’ll pay somewhere between $25-35. Now, that is a bit of a range, but you may also need to factor in shipping costs. No matter how you dice it though, this is an affordable gift - so much so that it could easily be slipped into a stocking.
Available in sterling silver, white gold, yellow gold, and gold-plated options (at different price points). Comes with a magnifying glass so it’s possible to read the words inscribed in 120 different languages.
There are some that don’t believe it’s worth the money.
Why she’ll love it: How touching is this? It’s a little like saying “I love you to the moon and back” – only more grown-up. I love you is written in 120 languages on this necklace in tiny letters. She’ll need the included magnifying glass to read it, but she’ll definitely be able to feel it and believe it when she opens this beautifully-packaged keepsake necklace. It may be tiny, but it will mean a lot.
Price: The price you pay depends on the material you choose. The MSRP of the 24-carat gold option is $360, but you’ll pay closer to $290. The sterling silver and gold-plated options are less than $200. It’s a little on the high end, but still reasonable for what you’re getting.
Choose the plan and number of people to feed over how many days. You can choose to send a once-off gift or pay for a weekly subscription.
Convenience comes at a price.
Why she’ll love it: No matter how much she enjoys cooking and feeding her family, sometimes it’s just easier to have all the planning and shopping done. That’s exactly what Hello Fresh offers – convenience at dinner time. If you choose a subscription rather than a gift box, the recipient will be able to choose between meals that suit them best. The perfectly-portioned ingredients create delicious meals and the instructions are always clear and easy to follow. Users love that the fun has returned to the kitchen – and the variety of meals. Basically, this is a win all around – and a gift that really does keep on giving.
Price: A once-off gift box from Hello Fresh begins at $60, but that is just for 2 people. If you opt for a weekly subscription, the charge relates to the plan you choose.
Contains 5 funky veg seeds and everything you need to get them started – at a brilliant price.
There have been some quality control issues – and the instructions aren’t always clear enough for beginners.
Why she’ll love it: C’mon, what gardener wouldn’t want to grow purple carrots or red Brussels sprouts? It’s about as cool as it gets. And, this is one of the most unique gifts and perfect for Christmas – as these seeds should be planted indoors in the winter to give them the growing season they need for a full harvest after they’ve been transplanted outdoors (after the last frost, of course).
Even newbie gardeners have experienced success with these veggies – and the result is wonderfully fresh and delicious. Even better, this kit comes with everything you need to get going.
Price: The MSRP is $27, but you can find this seed kit for less than $20 on Amazon. That’s an excellent price considering you get everything you need to get these amazingly funky veggies growing.
This stylish Keurig has a larger reservoir with cup size options – plus temperature and strength settings so the perfect brew is always close at hand.
Older K-cups don’t work with this model. There’s a long pre-brew time that can be irritating.
Why she’ll love it: This machine offers plenty of options that the original Keurigs just don’t have. For a start, you can opt for larger sizes, including carafes for serving a crowd – or just that long morning commute. (You will need to buy carafe pods for this though.) The intuitive operating system is easy to use and offers temperature and strength settings.
And then there’s the large reservoir (80 oz) which means you’re not constantly having to fill it. When you must, the large opening makes it easy to pour water in rather than removing it to place it under the tap. There’s also a hot water dispenser option and you also have the ability to program this baby to turn off and on at certain times to conserve electricity.
All in all, this is an awesome option for anyone that loves their coffee – and those that have owned previous Keurigs swear by the upgrades and features on this one.
Price: You can pick this up for somewhere around $200, including shipping. For anyone that loves their K-Cups but needs way more options, this is the one to have.
A comfortable, noise-cancelling headset that brings out the best in your music. Engineered to work with most smartphones so she can talk on her phone hands-free.
These are expensive headphones and some think the older Bose models work just as well.
Why she'll love it: The Bose headphones are best known for their true-to-life sound. Meaning she'll be able to listen to her music and feel like she's actually there with the band instead of on a long flight. As a bonus, these headphones look as good they sound. They are made in black, silver, and white. If you're having a tough time deciding which color to go with we suggest white.
These headphones are lightweight with pillowy-like softness on the headband and ear cushions so she'll be able to sleep without any discomfort or noise. It will only take one flight with the Bose QC25 headphones, and chances are she will never fly without them again. They reduce airplane roar to a whisper. And, they even eliminate the sound of crying babies.
Price: With a MSRP of $300, this gift is one of the most expensive on our list (though you can pick it up for closer to $280). The good news is, you're paying for quality and these headphones will last for many years. If she travels often or loves her music, you can't go wrong with this gift.
An easy on and off, water-resistant seude slipper lined with wool. Comfy and stylish!
No arch support.
Why she'll love it: Slippers are a gift that makes every woman (and her feet) happy. There is nothing better than slipping these babies on right out of bed on a cold, winter morning. They instantly warm your feet up. And, because they are water-resistant and have rubber soles, she can wear them out for quick trips to the mailbox or coffee shop. The UGG Scuffette comes in six earth tone colors to choose from including chesnut, sand, and espresso.
Price: $84 for a pair of slippers may seem like a lot, but these are quality-made. And, they will last her through quite a few cold winters.
Keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold and it’s totally leak-proof and BPA-free. It’s virtually unbreakable and doesn’t sweat – even with ice.
It’s not dishwasher safe.
Why she’ll love it: Not only are these water bottles large enough to keep your gal hydrated for the day, they’re a fashion accessory all on their own. With several designs to choose between, you’ll definitely be able to find one that matches her wardrobe and personality. MIRA water bottles keep 17 ounces (500 ml) of cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours; hot drinks stay hot for 12 hours. And, the whole thing is BPA-free, unbreakable, leak-proof, and doesn’t sweat even when you’ve filled it with plenty of ice. What’s not to love about this?
Price: The MSRP is $45, but you should be able to pick it up for under $20 on Amazon. That’s a fantastic price – and this water bottle will last forever as long as it’s cared for. Don’t worry, she will because she won’t want to be without it.
A simple, easy to use turntable that you can easily take with you wherever you go. Plays both vinyl and streamed music from your smartphone.
The speaker quality on this player isn't the best. Especially compared to more expensive turntables.
Why she'll love it: The Crosley Cruiser Deluxe is a small, portable turntable that can play both vinyl, iTunes, and Pandora. So no matter what she feels like listening to, she can use her Crosley. There are two built-in stereo speakers that can stream music directly from her smartphone with the integrated Bluetooth capability. The hard and portable vinyl-wrapped case looks just like briefcase when closed. And, the handles latch so she can take this turntable anywhere.
The Crosley Cruiser is available in a wide variety of colors and styles to suit any taste. Colors include: black, blue, green, orange, pink, red, and turqoise.
Price: Altough this is somewhat of an expensive gift for your girlfriend, it's one that won't disappoint. Especially if she always has music playing.
And if she's more into listening to music on the go than at home, you absolutely need to get her a pair of Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones in Rose Gold (budget permitting). Not only will she love the sound quality, but she'll adore the color and style as well.
These gorgeous wallets feature RFID protection and have pockets for everything you need to be organized while traveling. It also comes at a great price.
Coin compartment and ticket holder aren’t as useful as they could be. Some of the pocket ideas (such as for your phone and USB) are smaller than desired.
Why she’ll love it: Any woman that travels frequently – especially internationally – will fall head over heels for this wallet. For a start, it’s crazy good looking.
But it’s really more about the organization which boils down to all those pockets, including: passport, boarding pass, 3 credit cards, ID, sim card, coupon ticket, money, coin and even a cellphone pocket. There’s also key and pen holders.
To make it even more exciting, the whole thing features RFID protection and comes at a stellar price. It’s so perfect that she’ll (just like many others) use it every day.
Price: The MSRP is $28, but you’ll pay around $13 on Amazon which means you’ll be able to pick up a few or put something away for your next vacation.
This leak-proof bento box seals tight and is both microwave and dishwasher-safe. It’s good looking and well-designed.
The elastic band can’t be used for carrying the bento box. And, you need to look hard for silverware that fits in the top lid compartment.
Why she’ll love it: If she packs a lunch to take to the office every day, this is what she wants to bring it in. This bento box is simply gorgeous. Better still it’s wonderfully functional and fits plenty of food. There are two airtight compartments for food and a third for silverware – all of which is held together with a strap to ensure that everything you need for lunch is in exactly the right place.
It’s well-made with quality soft-touch plastic and is safe for both the microwave and the dishwasher. Sure, it comes at a price, but it’s seriously worth it.
Price: The MSRP is $36, though you should be able to find it for a few bucks less on Amazon. We know that’s expensive, but it’s so gorgeous and she’s so worth it.
This handy gadget is essentially an Echo upgraded with a monitor for video calling and increased app functionality (check who’s at your door or drop into another Show easily).
There are still some areas where functionality could be much better – and the Spot (which is $100 cheaper) will be released just before Christmas.
Features: If she’s already a fan of the Amazon Echo (and who isn’t), then she’s going to love this. The Show links into all the apps and Smart home functionality that the Echo does; now it just does it with video.
Video calling and the Drop In features are by far the ones that users enjoy using. Both are far more useful in video than the audio-only Echo can provide. And the other video functions are a real plus. You can easily check who’s at the door or link to your security system.
The unit itself is sturdy, and the video display is crisp and clear – though you do need to remember that it’s only 8”, so might not be big enough to watch movies while cooking for some. Users in the know rave about the sound quality – finding it to be even better than the original Echo.
And, of course, one of the pluses of any of the Echo devices – the Show included – is that Amazon continues to add new apps and functionality, meaning that these become more useful every day that you use them.
Price: At $130, it’s definitely not the cheapest of the lot, but it’s worth it as a gift for the wife that always has her hands full (and the rest of the family too). If you happen to catch it on special (or as a buy 2, save some cash), you need to take the plunge – most users would absolutely splash out on a second Show if they haven’t already. This item will be released on November 21, 2019.
This stylish little tote has everything you need to enjoy your wine while out and about. It fits 2 bottles of wine comfortably.
There are some quality control issues with the handle.
Why she’ll love it: If she loves her wine, she’ll need a convenient way to carry it to picnics, concerts, and anywhere else she finds a BYOB party. This lightweight tote is well-constructed and has space for 2 bottles of wine. It features a cooling pack which means wine can be served chilled even on the hottest of days. Inside, you’ll find 2x acrylic wine glasses, 2x wine glass stakes, 2x cloth picnic napkins, a corkscrew, and a bottle opener. It’s everything you need for an outing and makes an incredible gift.
Price: You actually can’t beat the price. This wine tote sells for less than $30 and has everything she needs – except the wine. (Hint: buy her a few bottles and wrap it all together.)
The quality and options on this instant camera are superior to other models. It’s fun to use and the film for this camera is more affordable than competitors.
It takes some trial and error to get it right – and there are limits with this camera (temperature and light ranges in addition to not having a zoom).
Why she’ll love it: The feeling that comes from holding a tangible photo rather than a phone full of selfies is priceless. And, the Instax Mini 90 takes some amazing images. Sure, it’s far from professional quality, but what you can achieve is way more than the price tag suggests.
Users love the variety of settings and the double exposure option especially. More important is the rechargeable battery and the slim, comfortable body of the camera.
And, when it comes to the film, you can expect to pay around $12 for 20 prints, which is exceptionally reasonable. Basically, this camera has everything you’d want from an instant model – and it has vintage styling to boot. Not bad.
Price: The MSRP is $180 and it’s probably worth that amount, but you’ll be happy to know that you should be able to pick it up on Amazon for closer to $120. As long as it receives tender, loving care, you can expect it to last for a long, long time (though we would still recommend adding on the accident protection Amazon offers).
