18 Best Christmas Gifts for Your Wife

Looking for gifts for wife? You’ve come to the right place.

If your wife hasn’t let you know what she wants for Christmas, you could always ask. But, if she really wants something specific, she would probably have told you by now.

We’ve compiled this list full of suggestions for anyone that needs a few extra ideas when shopping for gifts for the wife. And, we’ve taken the time to make a few other suggestions for the most important woman in your life, so be sure to take a closer look at each and every fave.

How Much Should You Spend?

The folks at Huffington Post did an informal survey of their staff and discovered that couples (married or not) together for less than a year spend under $100. Add $21 for each year you’ve been together. And, if you’ve been together for ten years, you should expect to spend $300.

Of course, your wife may want you to stick to a tight budget. And, we have no idea what your budget looks like. So, we’ve added gift ideas for your wife in every price range. You’re welcome.

Why trust us: Faveable has spent thousands of hours researching, interviewing experts, and testing products to come up with carefully selected lists trusted by millions of consumers since 2013.

Why People Love it

  • Makes packing and repacking easier
  • High quality; very well made
  • Great price – you get real value for money

These luggage organizers awesomely keep everything in order in any piece of luggage (from carry-ons to backpacks) and they come with a laundry bag to keep those smelly airplane socks well away from the clothes that need to stay fresh. Plus, it’s a totally eco-friendly choice; these packs are made from recycled soda bottles.

The material could potentially be thicker and hold their shape better, but you’ll find remarkably few people that have a complaint.

Features: Believe it or not, even the wife that that loves to travel is a little tired of all the packing and unpacking, rushing to the airport, and trying desperately to find some rest in hotel bedrooms. It’s a mission. Couldn’t it all be easier? That’s certainly the premise behind these packing cubes.

The manufacturers went out of their way to consider the details of these bags. You get a set of packing cubes that keep clothes nicely separated from all the cables and wires we still haven’t gotten rid of in the modern world. And there’s a laundry bag that can handle everything worn, wrinkled, and cast aside after a long day of meetings.

Different color options are available, but more importantly, there’s a money-back guarantee and the cases are made from recycled materials.

Price: Then, there is the price. You’ll be able to give this to your wife along with anything else her heart desires. And if you’re really struggling for ideas, why not grab this four-port USB charger (because hotel options are never in the right place). Or, if your wife travels by car, this trunk organizer makes life ever so much easier.

Why People Love it

  • Comfortable as anything
  • Warm; perfect for any season
  • Invitingly fluffy

You might think a bathrobe is just a bathrobe, but this one has a hood, is snuggly soft, evokes the spirit of a spa, and goes into the washer and dryer.

Pay attention to the washing instructions. Really. You don’t want this robe to change colors (or do the same for your other garments).

Features: A spa day is a moment to relax and indulge your body with all sorts of wonderful, healing treatments. And, they’re not exactly affordable every day of the week. Often, they’re not affordable more than once a year. Hence, the spa at home phenomenon.

Take it as an opportunity to get out of the house with the guys when your wife says it’s time for a home spa day. You’ll score extra points if you leave a bottle of chilled champagne and a glass in the bathroom before you leave.

This robe makes it easy for your wife to make the most of bathtub soaks, exfoliation treatments, hair and face masks, and more. We don’t need to tell you how much clothing changes your experience, do we? And she’ll need this robe; it’s soft, it’s hooded, and it can go in the washer and dryer.

If you got her a robe last Christmas, why not try this oil diffuser to set the mood? And, a set of these fizzy bath bombs are the perfect add-on gift for just about any woman.

Price: Although nearly $100 seems a bit steep for a robe, you can usually score this baby for right around $50. Plus, think about how much your wife will save by not having to pay for actual spa sessions. And, can you really put a price on your wife's happiness?

Why People Love it

  • Gorgeous style
  • Perfect for short trips
  • Large space and well-made

This large weekender bag has just the right amount of smaller pockets and fits easily into overhead compartments. And, the price is totally right.

There have been some quality control issues with this bag – however the manufacturer seems quick to respond and willing to replace.

Features: Anyone that often needs to make short trips – especially those that do it for work – needs to have a sturdy, and hopefully, good looking bag to take with them. And, this is the perfect bag for those sorts of trips.

The bag itself is made from sturdy canvas with leather adornments – though it’s still very lightweight. The majority of users find the hardware – zippers, buckles, strap fittings – to be strong, though there have been a few minor complaints about them. At which point, we’d like to point out that the manufacturer is quick to respond and replace.

Inside, there are plenty of small pockets, some with zippers to keep smaller items tidy and handy. Nearly everyone raves about the sheer amount of space inside the main compartment. And yet, it still works as a carry-on, even fitting into tight overhead compartments in ways that roller bags just can’t.

It’s available in four different colors: grey, dark grey, coffee, and army green – which we know sound a little like boy colors, but, if she’s travelling for work, she’ll appreciate the neutrality. Promise. This is definitely a winner.

Price: The MSRP is $100 and we think (as do many reviewers) that this bag looks like it’s worth twice that much. And yet, you can find it on Amazon for $60 or less. Steal.

Includes water tank-level indicators, folding drip tray for a variety of cups, and convenient cord storage.

Expert Ratings

Features

9.5 / 10

There's a lot of reasons to love this particular Nespresso model, beginning with the wonderfully small footprint and easy to use system. Indeed, it's got just about everything you need for an amazing cup of coffee.

We particularly like the programmable buttons for cappuccino as well as lungo, the convenient power cord storage, and that this machine falls in the energy consumption class of A-40%.

Finally, if you're more of a De'Longhi type of person, you can pick up virtually the same model by this brand. If you don't have a preference, you may be happy to learn that there's usually one on sale.

Heats up in 25 seconds and will shut off automatically after 9 minutes.

Value

9.5 / 10

It's not the cheapest option on the block, but the MSRP of $230 is quite reasonable. If you can pick it up cheaper, don't wait.

Why People Love it

  • Exceptional sound
  • Comfortable and always stay in place
  • Comes with all sorts of bits you never knew you needed

Besides the price and the sound (which you can’t beat), these comfortable headphones come with everything you need for charging and proper sound.

Besides a few odd quality control issues, there isn't really anything negative to say.

Features: If your wife goes for a walk or a run every day (whether it’s at the gym or with the dog), some tunes often go a long way. Okay, if she needs to clear her head, you might want to try something else.

But, if music and darned good quality sound (especially given the price) are something that she’ll dig, then you don’t want to pass these by. Users report them being exceptionally comfortable and staying put – no matter how hard they pound the pavement.

In addition to these earbuds, you get a heap of bonus Accessories and a 1-year manufacturer's warranty with a 30 days no-questions-asked return policy. And, the battery lasts a solid 8 hours (tested and proven by real users) with an enormous standby duration of 240 hours.

Plus, the mic works rather well and connection is a breeze. (Want to know more? You can read the full Faveable review of on best earbuds here.) Of course, you’re still looking at the price and wondering what else you can get her. Rest assured, this list has plenty of ideas.

Price: According to Amazon, the MSRP is $170 – which some reviewers believe would still be worth it. But, much of the time, they sell for $35, give or take. And, we’ve seen them as low as $20. You love that, right? Don’t worry, so will she.

Why People Love it

  • Makes a great gift
  • Excellent quality and materials
  • Wonderful for entertaining, perfect for displaying cheese

This bamboo cheese serving board offers more than a simple surface. The edges keep crackers in place nicely, and the sliding drawer holds the four (included) cheese knives perfectly.

Most users have life-changing experiences with this cheese board. There are a few that have difficulty with the drawer, but they’re few and far between.

Features: If your wife has a difficult time making it through the month without hosting a dinner party, this is the sort of gift she wants to see under the tree this year. It’s absolutely perfect for most occasions – from football games to five-course dinners.

The bamboo is super high-quality. And, although you need to hand wash it, cleaning is usually a painless process. Additionally, the blades of the knives are stainless steel.

We’re huge fans of the rimmed edge that makes it easy to add crackers to the board without destroying the presentation. And, if it matters to you, it’s also an Amazon #1 Best Seller. You could always toss a set of these cheese markers into her stocking to really make this gift sparkle.

And, if your wife doesn’t love cheese, you could give this gorgeous wine glass rack and bottle shelf a go. Or, try the Taste & Technique cookbook. Not only is this new release an Amazon Best Seller, it’s got backing from the respected folks at the New York Times.

Price: We think $50 is a reasonable price to pay for a product that can be used at dinner parties for years to come.

Why People Love it

  • Super soft and comfortable
  • Wonderfully warm
  • Makes a great gift

This slanket (a blanket with sleeves) is super warm, soft, and snuggly. It comes in a variety of colors and is affordable.

The one-size-fits all doesn’t suit everyone and the sleeves can be a little large. Additionally, there have been a few quality control issues.

Features: Okay, we’re being a little general with the Netflix reference. And, if we were to tell the truth, she’s desperately waiting for the next season of the Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu. (Patience, she’ll stop talking about it soon.)

But, you know that this is perhaps the best option for curling up on the couch and getting through a couple of episodes on cold winter nights. All you need to add is a hot cup of tea or a glass of wine.

The microplush polyester really is as soft, plush, and warm as reviewers would lead you to believe – even though it’s a little thinner than you might expect. The sleeves are on the large side, but the pocket is super handy for not losing the phone or remote in the piles of fabric cuddled around her.

All in, this is a win for anyone that wants to Netflix and chill on the couch – and works surprisingly well for working in cold offices too.

Price: The MSRP is $30, but you should be able to pick this up for under $25 which makes it a steal. You should have plenty of money left to pick up a good bottle of wine, some comfy sippers, and an online movie rental card while she waits for the Handmaid’s Tale.

Why People Love it

  • Amazing for tracking fitness goals
  • An incredible gift
  • Attractive with useful calling and messaging notifications

This Fitbit offers new levels of tracking, including sleep and heart rate monitors. The wristbands are slim, attractive, and interchangeable

Some users have reported inaccuracies with the tracking features – and it doesn’t register stairs. Additionally, there’s no button to tell Fitbit that you’re about to work out.

Features: Wearable fitness trackers are becoming ever more intelligent and intuitive, and this Alta model from Fitbit is no exception. It has a range of new or updated features, including the ability to monitor sleep and provide you with a continual look at your heart rate.

Users tend to enjoy the easy-to-use interface as well as the speed of charging and battery duration. But, almost everyone mentions how good looking this model is – it has a lovely, slim profile and the wristbands are easily interchanged so your tracker can match your outfit. (Plenty of wristband options are available on Amazon at good prices.)

The ability to see who’s calling or who has just messaged you is a feature that most users treasure on this particular model. And, the app is fairly intuitive – though there are a few things this particular model doesn’t do well: detect stairs and register that you’re actually working out (so you can track time or intensity on that).

Overall, however, this is one beloved fitness tracker and makes an amazing gift.  

Price: Depending on the color and size, you’ll pay between $150 and $180 for a Fitbit Alta. There are 6 colors and 3 sizes available with the Alta itself. However, you can find individual replacement bands for $10-25 (depending on how fancy you go) and multi-packs available in the $20-25 price range.

All in, this is a good deal. There are cheaper trackers out there, but they don’t have the brand behind them – nor the accuracy of the developments found in this Fitbit.

Why People Love it

  • Powerful automatic cleaner
  • Easy robotic navigation
  • Simple maintenance

Although this isn't the newest robovac on the market, it is still a crowd favorite. This vac provides a powerful clean while navigating easily through any interior.

The biggest complaint about this robotic vacuum is the price. There are well reviewed cheaper alternatives.

Features: These days, there's almost no reason to vacuum. It's not that dirt, dust, and dog hair have gone away; it's the prevalence of robotic vacuum cleaners on the market. If your wife doesn't have one yet, you can bet she wants one. And, she probably wants this one. 

The Roomba 650 uses a three-stage cleaning process and can be scheduled to get out there without any extra work for your wife (or you) - up to seven days a week. Now, it is a little on the expensive side, but it's worth every penny. 

Not sure it's the right one for your wife? You can read the full review - and check out our other fave robo-vacuums here.

Of course, you could always invest in a maid service (she will really enjoy that)! Or, perhaps a Smart washer and dryer set. Every wife wants those too, we promise. 

Price: Not cheap, but well worth the investment.

  • So light and comfy you won’t even know you’re wearing them
  • Moisture-wicking for all day comfort
  • Cooling fabric; excellent breathability

Modest coverage, stylish, feather-light, no visible panty line, highly versatile, anti-microbial, soft and stretchy, cool cotton, breathable, no rolling or bunching. The underwear you want all day, every day!

May stretch out too easily and not as long-lasting as you might like.

Expert Ratings

Fabric

9.5 / 10

These underwear are made with a mix of 77% nylon mesh and 23% spandex. This mixture makes them super soft, super lightweight, and wonderfully breathable.

The Spandex also gives them a nice stretch, so they’re easy to pull on and off even if you’re packing a bit more “junk in the trunk”. It’s also anti-microbial and non-pilling, so you can use it over and over again without worrying about it being damaged in the wash.

However, there is a cotton gusset in the crotch, guaranteed to keep you feeling fresh. The “Cool Cotton” fabric is fast-drying, cooler than regular cotton, and with great breathability—all vital for all-day comfort.

Be warned: the fabric may stretch out over time, so they’re not the longest-lasting underwear on the market.

Comfort

9.5 / 10

The feather-light fabric barely feels like anything’s there, and you may just forget you’re wearing anything at all after a few minutes. There are no visible panty lines with these thongs, and they’re designed to avoid bunching or rolling up—perfect to wear under that LBD or cocktail gown. The seamless edges won’t be visible beneath even a tight dress or skirt.

Value

9.5 / 10

At $26 per pair, these are slightly on the pricier side, but well worth it for cool, invisible comfort. Definitely a great pair to own if you want to feel as good as you look in any dress!

Why People Love it

  • Super gorgeous
  • Holds up to 2 bottles of wine
  • Plenty of storage for everything else you need

It discreetly holds up to 2 bottles of wine in a BPA-free “party pouch” that can be dispensed from a hidden flap. Reusable or replaceable party packs are stored in an insulated compartment.

You’ll probably want to invest in extra party packs which are $18 for a set of 3.

Features: Any gal that loves her wine should have this purse. No really… it’s that cool. For the most part, it’s a handbag that holds all the stuff women carry around with them. But, it’s really a secret container for carrying and dispensing wine.

Yes, you read that correctly; this isn’t a purse that carries 2 bottles of wine. It’s a purse with a secret insulated compartment that holds a “party pack” with up to 2 bottles of decanted wine. The party pack features a spout that’s tucked behind a discreet flap on the side of the purse.

It’s a leather-like bag which is code for “easy to clean the inevitable splashes of wine” and it’s classically styled to look like any other purse your wife would carry.

Although party packs can be washed (well) and reused, you should probably pick up an extra set ($18 for 3) – at the very least there’s a couple for red or for white wines. Do it all at once to score free shipping on the party packs (the purse already features free standard shipping in the US).

Price: At $75, this is actually a steal as her friends will be jealous beyond words. And it’s the kind of bag that she’ll take for just about any occasion, so she’ll get plenty of use out of it.

Why People Love it

  • Fits Kindles like a glove
  • Attractive case (and plenty of options)
  • Durable and sturdy protective cover

You can wake or put your Kindle to sleep by opening or closing this lightweight cover. The interior pocket holds your reader in place for serious protection, and it would be difficult not to find an awesome design from the cover options.

A tiny minority of users report quality control issues with this. Additionally, you may want to be careful how you hold it sometimes; it’s the magnet that triggers the sleep mode.

Features: There is nothing like the feel of a real book. Then again, there’s nothing like the convenience of the Kindle bookstore. While Kindle has gone out of their way to create screens that read as much like books as possible, Finite has worked to create a cover that makes it feel like you have a real book in your hands.

There are a few things that make us flip for this folio cover. For a start, it’s lightweight – a mere three and a half ounces (or thereabouts). And then there are all those design options. It’s not difficult to find one that will make your wife smile. There is also the low, low price.

Now, it’s not made of leather, but it is solid enough to protect your Kindle. And, it’s magnetic clasp makes it possible to wake your reader up (or put it to sleep) when opening and closing the cover. It feels a little like a real book, though nothing can ever replace the beauty of a real book. That said, it’s tough to beat a new read at the touch of a few buttons; so why not consider this with the Kindle Paperwhite if your wife doesn’t have one yet?

Price: If you buy this baby from Amazon it's a total steal! A gift you absolutely cannot afford to pass up.

Why People Love it

  • Easy to use
  • Amazing, delicious cold brew coffee
  • Sturdy, top-notch quality

This cold brew machine is well designed, easy to use and clean, and makes a lot of coffee without taking up a lot of space. It also sells for under $100.

It doesn’t always do a good job with tea – and a minority of users experience a problem with small grinds making their way through.

Features: If your wife loves her cold brew coffee, this is the coffee maker that she needs. It’s really a quality machine with the KitchenAid brand behind the stellar engineering.

Users love that it is super easy to use – and (perhaps more importantly) to clean. It also makes a lot of delicious coffee without taking up a lot of space. The most irritating thing seems to be waiting up to a day to pour the first cup.

And, everyone raves about the taste of those first sips. This really does an amazing job of producing a strong concentrate – which means that a little goes a long way.

It’s beautiful and looks so inviting when you open the fridge and see it sitting comfortably on the shelf there. Plus, that drip-free tap makes it easy to pour coffee from the fridge rather than hauling everything in and out.

The only caveat is that you’ll want to pay attention to the grind of your beans; if it’s too fine, those grounds will become stuck and someone will need to dig them out.

Price: It’s $80 on Amazon and that’s an unbeatable price. Just calculate how much she spends on cold brews on the way to the office and you’ll know exactly what we mean. Most users recommend just buying it and asking questions later – that’s how much they love theirs. Doesn’t your wife deserve the same?

Expert Ratings

Quality

9.6 / 10

These lounge pants are made with a blend of three fabrics: 45% micro-modal, 45% polyester, and 10% spandex. This blend makes them super lightweight, wonderfully stretchy, and resistant to pilling, sweat stains, and food stains.

They won’t wear out, fade, or stretch with regular use or washing, and they’ll last you for many years to come.

Style

9.7 / 10

The style is about what you’d expect from lounge pants: a soft elastic waistband and a straight cut that hugs your legs but has plenty of elasticity to keep you comfortable as you sit and move.

The lounge pants come with two built-in side pockets (not very large, sadly) to store keys, your smartphone, or other small items. Best of all, there’s no itchy tag, and you can be comfortable wearing these all day long thanks to the tagless design.

The stay-put waistband will ensure that the pants stay firmly in place, but they won’t leave red marks. There’s no risk of rolling up or pulling down, and you’ll love how the fabric is light, airy, and beautifully cool even on the hottest day.

The pants only come in black, but they’ll hold their color well over years of use.

Value

8.8 / 10

At $52, these are definitely some of the priciest lounge pants on the list, but excellent for those who want maximum comfort and a lightweight fabric.

Why People Love it

  • Awesome hands-free video calling
  • Sound quality is superb
  • The on screen apps and the functionality are practical and fun

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 7”, so it’s not really big enough to watch movies while cooking. 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 $230, 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.

Black Opium by YSL is easily the best perfume for women overall, as it has a fantastic scent for…well, everybody. Depending on what size you buy, it’s pretty affordable. Black Opium has an irresistibly sweet aroma that turns heads of wearers and smellers alike.

None that we can find. Just make sure you are buying from a reputable seller if you purchase on Amazon, some sellers are not authentic.

Expert Ratings

Fragrance

9.5 / 10

An addictive combination of white floral, mixed with base notes of coffee, vanilla, and cedarwood. Sweet, sensual, and unexpectedly soft. 

Occasion

9.5 / 10

Black Opium is a very versatile fragrance. The softness from the white flowers and vanilla makes it a great choice for the day, while the deep tones of coffee and cedarwood make it appropriate for evening wear as well.

This is a warmer scent, so it probably works best in the colder months. Additionally, it's incredibly long-lasting, so you can wear from morning until night.

Value

9.5 / 10

Just over $100 for a 3-ounce bottle is actually a heck of a deal. Plus, you won't need much of this to make an impact, so this bottle should last a very long time.

Katie’s Cleveland proud; but she’s also lived in Australia, Switzerland and now stays in South Africa. That’s a roundabout way of saying she can’t sit still; she’s always moving, always busy.

She has a BA in International Relations from Kent State University and work towards a Masters in Human Rights. She speaks French, is learning German and used to dream in Spanish. For years, Katie worked as a producer on fashion and advertising shoots before she realized her passion was the written word.

Katie’s far more interested in guy’s gear than women’s, except she has a wardrobe brimming with little black dresses. She drinks her beer out of the bottle and is raising her two boys to be better men.
