The 61 Best Gifts for Your Wife (Because She Deserves It, Dammit)
Happy wife, happy life, right? Well, that’s an especially anxiety-inducing belief when her birthday is coming up, or your anniversary together, or Mother’s Day or any holiday, really. Because if you mess up selecting the best gift for your wife, it’s a long hard climb back from the disappointment, hollow “I love it!” exclamations and potentially sharp exchanges between the two of you. So get it right, people—take a moment to think about her style, her hobbies and interests, and shop accordingly. We have scoured the stores for something every type of wife would love, from the under-$50 set of statement earrings to the blowout $1,500 smart TV that looks like a framed painting hanging on the wall.
At just over a foot tall, this cast stone tabletop fountain makes a great side table element, garden bed focal point or accent for a group of potted plants. It’s got a 16-foot cord to keep it powered up; the self-contained recirculating burbles on continually, soothing thirsty birds and wine o’clock spouses alike.
