Below you'll find our picks for the Top 10 best Christmas gifts for women this year.
Schoodie is the name for the official hooded scarf, which is made up of a knit scarf and fleece hood. This gift is for the woman that wants a versatile yet comfortable accessory. The Schoodie can be worn as a bathing suit cover up on the beach, with a coat or jacket to stay warm, and everything in between. For the colder months, there is the option of purchasing a Schoodie Winter, which will keep her warm, or you can get her the classic Schoodie, which is not quite as heavy. Or why not get one of each Schoodie so your fashion-forward friend can switch up her style anytime she likes. Your woman will appreciate it! Not for nothing this hooded scarf is the best Christmas gift for women.
2. Le Labo Perfume
Le Labo creates amazing fragrances that seem to please pretty much everyone (and don’t lead to gasping for air in elevators). But their distinct yet classic scents aren’t the only things that make their perfumes special: Le Labo creates their perfumes right when you order them, so the scents are fresh as can be. Essentially, the perfumes are made-to-order just for you and your intended receiver. You can also personalize the label to say anything you want, from the receiver’s name to a short note. Or, if you can’t decide on just one scent (although we are partial to Rose 31), you can purchase the Discovery Set, which consists of a set of three small rods filled with the three different scents of your choosing.
And if you feel like splurging, Le Labo also makes scented candles, notebooks (without the Elle Woods/“Legally Blonde” tackiness), and laundry detergent.
A perfume that is made when you order? Personalized label? No wonder Le Labo is one of the best Christmas gifts for women!
3. Colored Outerwear
The fashion shows for the Fall/Winter season have been filled with outerwear in colors. For the woman who wants to keep warm yet stay up with the fashion and is willing to take a few risks, try the Thakoon Addition Cropped Jacket in Mustard available at Shopbop.com.
Or you can combine this trend with another trend, fur, and buy her a jacket that has a new take on mod with the Double-Breasted Jacket with Fur Collar by Narciso Rodriquez, available at Bergdorf Goodman. So if you are shopping for a fashionist this for sure is the way to go. After all, it didn’t make it to a top spot on the best christmas gifts for women by accident.
4. Make-up from Sephora
The fashion shows have also been filled with make-up trends such as winged eyeliner, metallic eye shadow, and hot red lips. If you think buying make-up for someone else is too difficult, you can head to Sephora where they have fun, ready-made palettes such as the Dior 5-Coulour Designer All-In-One Artistry Palette – Smoking Design with five different smoky eye shadows, or the limited edition Sephora Colorista Custom Makeup Palette, with 40 eye shadows, 5 eyeliners, 15 lip colors, 4 blushes, and 2 bronzers. You can never go wrong with Make-up from Sephora as they only carry top brands that every girl loves.
Make-up could very well be the best Christmas gift for women. But make-up is probably one of the few places where a gift card is acceptable, so if you’re really struggling and make-up isn’t your thing, buy her a Sephora Gift Card and she can buy whatever she desires.
5. Wine of the Month Club
For the wine-lover, a wine of the month club is an amazing gift. The Wine of the Month Club offers a great variety of wines from independent, award-winning wineries all over the world, including ones from Chile, Napa Valley, and Spain. Your friend will discover new wines when she receives two full bottles a month of red, white, or a mixed selection delivered to her doorstep each month for the entire year. Now that’s what I call a great present, no wonder it’s part of our Top 10 Best Christmas Gifts for Women. Drink up!
6. 1-Year Spotify Premium Membership
Most likely you’ve heard of Spotify, but if you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of months, here are the details. Spotify is an only music system where you can listen to music and create playlists that can be shared with friends. Sure most girls like flashy & glamorous gifts and although Spotify is none of that there’s a reason why it is one of the best Christmas gifts for women.
The Spotify Premium Membership has a lot of perks: for $9.99 per month your music-lover will get all of the music with no advertising, be able to play music on her mobile device, listen to her playlists while not connected to the Internet (which is great for airplane rides), and gain access to exclusive content like listening to albums before they are released. Sounds great, right? Well while you’re at it, why not buy yourself the gift of music as well?
7. Toms Shoes
Your friend likes to be comfortable, fashionable, and socially responsible. For every Toms shoes purchase, the company will give a pair to a child in need. Toms has come out with a new line called The Row with three different styles made in cashmere and Italian wool perfect to keep her toes warm in the cool climate. Or you can choose for the Fall’s woven styles like tweed, corduroy, or houndstooth. And now, Toms even makes wet-weather ready botas, which have a fleece collar and lining and a treated coating to protect her feet from the winter weather. Whatever her style or the weather conditions in which she lives, you will be able to find her something from Toms. I mean, shoes are already the best Christmas gift for women!
8. Falling Whistle
If Tom’s aren’t her thing, get your humanitarian loved one a whistle from the non-profit, Falling Whistles. Falling Whistles advocates for peace in the seemingly perpetually war-torn Congo. They sell whistles (hence the name) to help rehabilitate the victims of the devastation in the Congo, as well as act as "whistleblowers for peace," by drawing attention to the events in war-ravaged region. The whistles aren't a random item to sell: young boys have been sent to the frontlines of war in the Congo with only a whistle in tow. So give your support to this very important human rights cause by buying your friend a whistle. Not only will she like the whistle itself (they come in different, cool-looking varieties), but also the sentiment behind it. After all, it's the thought that counts.
Falling whistles are a fashionable accessory supporting a great cause. It makes the best Christmas gift for women that believe that making a difference in the world begins with oneself.
9. La Marzocco GS/3 Lite Professional Espresso Machine
These days, we are always connected. That means we are always working, even when we’re not in the office. For the espresso connoisseur and the woman who constantly needs a caffeine fix (and is unsatisfied with the bad product from Starbucks), there is the GS/3 espresso machine from La Marzocco. This handmade espresso maker has as much power as many that are in coffee shops, but is a fraction of the size.
This machine will make her feel as though she is sipping espresso in Florence Italy, where La Marzocco has been producing great espresso machines for the past eighty years. And for that reason La Marzocco GS/3 Lite Professional Espresso Machine is one the best Christmas gifts for women.
10. Spa Day
Everyone loves a spa day. Period. It is the perfect gift for all types of girls no matter what age. A spa day is well deserved holder of the “best Christmas gift for women” title. At least one of the best. We’re always so busy and on the go, that taking time to relax, if only for a day, can be extremely restorative.
Get your friend or woman in your life the full works: a manicure, pedicure, deep tissue massage, and facial. She will come back a new, energized woman. At least until the next stressor pops up.
