Gifts for girlfriends can be a bit of a brain teaser—what’s something she’ll love that she hasn’t already snagged for herself? We nominate something thoughtful, food-based or anything beauty-related to show her that you do, in fact, watch the TikTok videos she sends you all day long. We’ve hunted down an assortment of products based on her hobbies and interests that she's bound to love—and some that will maybe even make her love you more.

Has she been stressed lately? These Hum Nutrition Ashwagandha Calm Gummies will help her relax at the end of a long day. If she's always running errands, she'll want to wear Free People FP Movement's Pippa jacket on repeat. And any girlfriend will heart you for gifting them the Nue Co magnesium ease spray to help her get some shut-eye on Valentine's Day, her birthday or just because. Without further ado, here are the 45 best gifts for girlfriends on the market in 2024.

For The Cocktail-Lover

1. Anthropologie Valeria Coupe Glass

Anthropologie

Toast your girl with this vintage-inspired, heart-shaped glass. If she’s not a big drinker (or is giving Damp January a try this year), it can double as a bowl for a sweet treat or two at the end of a long day.

For The Cheeky Girl

2. Victoria’s Secret Lace-Trim Cheekster Panty

Victoria's Secret

A Valentine’s Day gift guide wouldn’t be complete without something a little lacy, but we’re here for comfort too, and this super-soft pair of cheeky bottoms is as comfy as it is sexy. Multiple reviews claim these lacy cuties are undetectable under clothing, and at just $15 each (or three for $39), you might want to get her a few pairs.

For The Ambiance Enthusiast

3. By Anthropologie Floral Night Gardenia Glass Jar Candle

By Anthropologie

Flowers are lovely, but only last so long (unless you get the Eternity rose below, that is) - if you want her to enjoy a sweet floral scent for days to come, this gardenia-, salted guava- and tonka-infused candle is the way to go. The mini size burns for 31 hours, and once that time’s up, she can clean out the candle and use the speckle glass jar to hold jewelry or other small accessories.

For the Lady Who Lounges

4. BTEX COLL Velvet Memory Foam Slippers

Btex Coll

Cozier than Barbie’s heeled mules but every bit as chic, these velvet slippers will elevate her morning routine. Plus, they’re available in 11 colors, and in sizes ranging from 5 to 12, so you’re practically bound to find her perfect fit.

For The Card Collector

5. Paper Love Valentine's Day Pop-Up Card

Paper Love

This card is nothing like the flat, one-dimensional cards you pick up at the drugstore - literally. Pretty enough to display with pride, these flowers will be a fun surprise whether they arrive in the mail or accompany one of the other festive gifts on this list.

For The Chocoholic

6. Tony’s Chocolonely Custom Bars

Tony's Chocoloney

Sure, you could get a stunning box of chocolates for this sweets-focused holiday, but why not go the extra mile and make this Valentine’s Day a custom-made experience? Tony’s Chocolonely makes some seriously craveable chocolate, and with their customization option you can craft a bar (or five, if you want to make one in each available flavor) with your own choice of color and design, including a photo and text of your choosing.

Got a Valentine who’s obsessed with her Stanley? Take her favorite accessory (and OK, thirst-quencher) to the next level with this Neoprene holster. It features an adjustable strap, so she can tote her bottle hands-free (which, PS, the pouch fits 30- and 40-ounce tumblers). It also has a seven-inch pocket that can stow most phones, along with a carabiner for her keys and comes with a cute cloud straw cover. Now she truly can take it everywhere with her.

For the Neat Dresser

8. Brynll Mini Iron

Brynnl

This 5.1- by 2.5-inch mini iron is not only great for travel but also a boon for home use since it functions as a steamer and iron (one that doesn’t require an ironing board, either!). The handle rotates 180 degrees, so she can really get into those tiny wrinkles on collars and cuffs.

For Any Girlfriend

9. Snappy Gifting

Snappy

Does she love snacks and sweets, wellness products and random but useful products? Is she a dog mom? Give her the option to pick her own gift out at Snappy. She'll get to choose the products she wants based on the budget you set. And BTW, items are available for as low as $20, with limits between $25 to $500.

For the Coffee Feen

10. YouNique Designs Here’s to Strong Women Mug

YouNique

If she starts her day with a strong cup of coffee, why not gift her a durable 11-ounce ceramic mug that reminds her she's strong, too? Especially since it's easy to clean (ahem, she can put it in the dishwasher) and microwave-safe.

Under $50 Gifts:

For the Sweets-Obsessed

11. Levain Bakery Decadent Cookie Assortment

Levain Bakery

Chocolates and candy are great, but they can be a little expected. Gift your girlfriend a taste of NYC—even if you don’t have the budget for an actual trip—with this sampler pack from the city’s famed Levain Bakery. A four-pack contains softball-sized, gooey-centered cookies in its most over-the-top flavors: Caramel Coconut Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip Walnut, Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip and Two-Chip Chocolate Chip.

For the Perfume Addict

12. PHLUR Missing Person Eau de Parfum

Phlur

You’ve probably seen this perfume sniffed by influencers and perfume enthusiasts all over social media, and for good reason. Notes of musk, florals and sandalwood create a profile that one reviewer says “smells like a warm hug.” The scent is crafted to evoke the nostalgic scent of a favorite person, so why not give it to your favorite person?

For The Comfy Sleeper

13. By Anthropologie Valentine Boxer Shorts

By Anthropologie

For the girl who’s always stealing her partner’s boxer shorts to sleep in or to lounge around (guilty), get her a pair of her very own. These 100 percent cotton boxer shorts have a contrasting elastic waistband and a loose fit for optimum comfort. The pink color is classic Valentine’s day, and the black option adds a bit of edge to the oh-so-sweet heart pattern.

For The Manicure Maven

14. Love Letters to My Nails Set

Show her you support her commitment to self-care with this nail art set that’ll let her create a multitude of love-inspired looks. With two polish colors (red and pink), a high gloss topcoat, drying oil and nail art tool, she’ll be flashing a set of fresh nails whenever the mood strikes.

For The Elegant Decorator

15. Classic Le Mini Round Eternity Rose

Venus et Fleur

Nothing says Valentine’s Day quite like a bouquet of roses. So why not go the extra mile and gift her one that’ll last all year? This Eternity rose is the perfect size to keep on her desk, and doubles as a chic decor piece. It’s available in four colors, but we’re partial to the rose gold for its striking look.

For The Sweet Tooth

For The Long-Distance Lover

17. Lovehoney Rose Clitoral Suction Stimulator

Lovehoney

While this may not be the most traditional way to give your girlfriend a rose, we guarantee she won’t be disappointed to receive what might become her new best friend. Rechargeable for 65 minutes of playtime, and with 10 suction modes to try, this is a toy that’ll help her redefine “self-care.”

For The Swiftie

18. 1989 (Taylor's Version)’ Vinyl

Taylor Swift

If she’s still reliving her Eras tour experience, we know your favorite Swiftie will appreciate a collectible vinyl version of what may be Taylor’s top album (we said what we said). If you’re feeling extra generous, pair it with an album frame and she’ll be able to incorporate her fandom into her decor as well.

For The Gardener

19. GardenHome Garden Tool Set

GardenHome

This ingenious set will prove useful whether your gal's a veteran gardener or a newbie. It includes a folding garden stool and a detachable canvas bag that holds five tools. Each is made of stainless steel with wood handles, and the weeder and weeding fork alone are worth the price of the whole set.

For The Insomniac

20. The Nue Co. Magnesium Ease

The Nue Co.

Before-bed topical magnesium is all the rage among the PureWow staff, and we bet any sleep-deprived girlfriend will appreciate the relaxation it promotes. Additionally, this formula contains anti-inflammatory arnica, so it does double duty as a lightly lavender-scented muscle rub.

For The Skincare Buff

21. Kate McLeod Lotion Bar

Kate McLeod

She'll set aside her beloved body creams, even luxury ones, once she gets her mitts on this stone-shaped bar of solid lotion that liquifies on contact with skin. All she has to do is rub it against her warm, towel-dried body as she gets out of the bath, and the blend of cocoa butter, sweet almond, apricot kernel, avocado and fractionated coconut oils will make her moist, fragrant and happy with no messy lotion pump to deal with.

For The Coastal Grandma

22. Pottery Barn Garden Floral Pillow Cover

Pottery Barn

This 20-inch floral pillow cover is sophisticated and looks like it's made of a designer fabric that costs ten times the price. And it's printed on both sides. All that value, and it's machine washable! Just zip off the outside and toss it in the wash. (Note: Buy a pillow insert to make the gift complete.)

For The Crafty One

23. Lego Icons Flower Bouquet

Lego

Sure, she loves bouquets of roses. snapdragons, poppies, asters, daisies and grasses—but when she can create her own versions of these flowers out of classic snap-together Lego pieces to make flowers that never wilt, she'll love them even more. The arrangement is endlessly customizable, since she will be able to take leaves and stems from one flower and graft them onto another—or even pare down the selection to fit a bud vase.

For The Stressed-Out Person

24. Hum Nutrition Ashwagandha Calm Gummies

Hum Nutrition

Ashwagandha is a favorite of PureWow staffers, and these sour cherry gummies are formulated with it, to help manage the stress hormone cortisol, which has been shown to improve the body’s response to stress with continued use. They also contain l-theanine to promote relaxation and help relieve emotional stress.

For The Brown Bagger

25. Calpak Insulated Lunch Bag

Calpak

She'll love you giving her this compact-yet-roomy drawstring tote that's insulated to keep her lunch fresh. Multiple interior pockets and one exterior pocket keep her napkin dry and her spoon and fork organized. And the nylon, polyethylene and polyester material is tough, for long reuse.

gifts for girlfriends naadam

For The Classic Dresser

26. Naadam The Original Cashmere Sweater

A crewneck cashmere sweater is a luxury basic that’ll never go out of style, especially if it’s monogrammed with her name or a sweet sentiment. At under $100, it’s a steal for a sweater that reviewers call “unbelievably soft” and “cashmere perfection.” Pick her favorite color out of the 34 available and choose a monogram of up to four letters (for $20 extra). Xoxo, you.

For the Sentimental Person

For The Frequent Flyer

28. Oak Essential Mini Routine

Oak Essentials

This line of skincare from designer and lifestyle influencer Jenni Kayne includes a cleanser, mask, balancing mist, restorative face oil and moisturizing balm, all of which are formulated with key ingredients, like sea buckthorn fruit oil and organic honey. Basically, it’s the minimalist traveler’s go-to for rehydrating fatigued skin since it's sized small enough to pop into a carry-on.

For The Sleep Enthusiast

29. Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Cloud Pillow

Tempur-Pedic

She can fluff, scrunch, flatten or even remove handfuls of the stuffing from this pillow, which includes three kinds of material—pressure relief, plush comfort and high-density foam formulations. “The loose foam filling makes adjusting the pillow for custom comfort—regardless of your sleep position—very easy,” writes one Tempur-Pedic reviewer.

For The Bathing Beauty

30. C & The Moon Malibu Made Body Scrub

C & The Moon

Made by a Malibu-born woman with an NYU degree in alternative medicine, this scrub uses brown sugar and natural oils to naturally soften skin. Not only is this a skin-soothing pre-bath self-massage opportunity, but her skin won’t even need lotion after a bath, since this scrub should leave skin with a silky feel.

For The Professional Dresser

31. Quince Silk Blouse

Quince

This long-sleeve silk blouse has a notched collar and is done up in 19-milimeter silk weight fabric (in seven jewel tones). The main draw here, however, is that there's no dry cleaning required—all she has to do is pop it in the delicate cycle on cold, and line dry.

For The Glam Sleeper

32. Slip Silk Pillowcase

Slip

Silk pillowcases come with a list of benefits, including smoother hair and wrinkle prevention. So, if she's struggling with hair frizz or sleep creases, this sham will come to the rescue (plus it'll feel so gosh darn fancy on her face, according to reviewers).

For The Tub Enthusiast

33. Archive Poet at Heart Bubble Bath

Archive

This 33.8-ounce macadamia nut oil, sweet almond oil, olive oil and aloe mixture comes in an elegant glass bottle with printed quotes from antique books on it. The result? Not only is the whole package full of bubbly relaxation, but it’s also a beautiful object to enjoy on a bathroom shelf.

For The Mixologist

34. Shaker and Spoon Cocktail Club

Shaker & Spoon

Does your girlfriend love to create craft cocktails at home, but not have all the exotic ingredients of the local hotspots serving the latest fashionable drinks? Now she can get a curated box each month with all the ingredients (except alcohol) for three chef-created cocktails. Syrup, bitters, mixers and instructions on how to mix it all together will introduce her to new flavor combos...and she'll make enough to share.

For The Athleisure Wearer

35. Fixmatti Knitted Sweatsuit

Fixmatti

If she's loving her sweats-and-hoodie comfort but has been wanting to refresh her style, ease her into something that looks sleeker but is just as comfy: this two-piece stretch set. Made of 52 percent viscose, 28 percent polyester and 20 percent nylon, the pullover top and wide-leg trousers hang elegantly and move as comfortably on the body as any warm-up set...with nary a sport logo to be seen.

The Best Splurge Gifts:

For The Whimsical Dresser

36. Anthropologie Susannah 3-D Cardigan Sweater

By Anthropologie

Who says Valentine’s Day has to end on February 15th? This sweater will be just as sweet all year ‘round. The 3-D hearts add whimsy to a classic cardigan, and the fit is slouchy enough to toss over anything from a slinky date night dress to a button-down for everyday wear.

For The Chic Lounger

37. Eberjey Gisele Printed Relaxed Short PJ Set

Eberjey

Eberjey makes some of the best pajamas out there, and their silky soft offerings are fan favorites of PureWow readers and editors alike. The Gisele shorts set is perfect for sleepers who run warm, and this heart print on their signature modal jersey material is an adorable twist for V-day.

For the Girl Who Loves a Lil’ Sparkle

38. Gorjana Diamond Pavé Alphabet Bracelet

Gorjana

Worn solo or as an anchor in her ever-changing bracelet stack, this diamond-studded 14-karat gold initial necklace is a blingy update of the classic monogrammed style. Give it her initial, yours or her child's.

For The Neighborhood Stroller

39. Free People FP Movement Pippa Jacket

FP Movement

She’ll appreciate you wanting her to stay warm when you give her this jacket, which has PrimaLoft insulation. This lightweight-yet-cozy nylon puffer has a distinctive curved hem and slightly cropped fit, both of which make it way more flattering than standard puffer jackets. And it's water resistant and machine washable.

For The Light Packer

40. Calpak Hue Mini Luggage

Calpak

This little wonder comes in seven appealing colors and is sized to fit under most airline seats (it's 16 by 14 by 8.5 inches to be exact), so she'll never have to struggle with heavy overhead compartments ever again. And it's chock-full of extras, such as a TSA-approved lock, a removable inside strap to keep the lid at a 90-degree angle and a zippered interior divider with lots of pockets.

For The Wine Drinker

41. Mysa Natural Wine Starter Set

Mysa

This selection of four natural wines comes courtesy of a woman-run online wine cellar that has clear explanations of all its wines (i.e. no oenophile jargon), making education its mission. This starter kit comes with an orange, red, a pet nat (a wine industry term taken from the French words "pétillant naturel,” meaning "naturally sparkling") and a surprise wine.

For the Decor Lover

42. Blueme Refillable Ceramic Candle

Blueme

It's sculptural enough to be a standout objet d'art on a bookshelf or coffee table, but Blueme's refillable ceramic candle is more than just a pretty piece: Its scents fill a room—without overpowering it—and when she's hit her 30 hours of burn time on this five-wick wonder, she can clean out the vessel and pop in a refill (sold separately for an extra $60).

Our editors were impressed with its clean, even burn and Nostalgia's soothing-yet-crisp citrus scent.

For The Commuter

43. Tory Burch Perry Tote Bag

Tory Burch

This roomy (some might say “ludicrously capacious”) 11.6 x 14.3 inch bag is the only bag she’ll need to carry all of her essentials. And we mean all of ‘em: planner, cosmetic bag, laptop, tablet, brush—basically everything she could need this side of a long weekend. Protective metal feet on the pebbled leather exterior keep the bottom from getting scuffed, and four interior pockets keep everything organized, chicly.

For The Stylish Traveler

44. Janessa Leone Packable Hat

Janessa Leone

This hat's medium-wide crown is pinched and has a suede band, all done in neutral earth tones. It's all designed to look good on a wide range of women (which it does) and to stay attractive no matter how many times it's tossed into a back seat, rolled up and stashed in a carry-on bag or even flattened into a backpack. (We've done all that, and it's still looking great.)

For The Hair Care Lover

45. Vegamour HYDR-8 Essentials Kit

Vegamour

Vegamour has pioneered treatment-specific formulas of shampoos, conditioners and hair treatments that are as pretty and pleasing to use as they are effective. This shampoo, conditioner and hair mask product trio contains the brand's proprietary vegan keratin alternative, which doesn't rinse away but bonds to hair for a sleeker (but still voluminous) result. Plus, that scent: "It smells like an expensive flower bouquet, very luxurious," writes one reviewer.
