For the Health Conscious One

1. Oura Smart Ring


She’s used everything from the Fitbit to the Apple Watch, and she'll love having a more minimalist way to track her biometrics. The Oura Ring slips right onto her finger and can give readings for over 20 biometrics, including heart rate, body temperature, blood oxygen and more. This can give her deeper insights on her sleep, activity levels and even her menstrual cycle (the health tracker is compatible with Natural Cycles, a FDA-approved birth control app). Plus, it’s super stylish and won’t bombard her with notifications, so she can tune into actual life instead of fighting the urge to check her phone constantly, and it has a seven-day battery life.

For the Wino

2. Vinebox 12 Nights of Wine Box


If your gift recipient always has a bottle of wine on hand, chances are they’ll love opening a glass of wine each day leading up to Christmas. Vinebox’s 12 Nights of Wine offers a sampling of hand-picked selections from different wine regions like Italy, France, Spain and California. There are two options: a Cozy Collection filled with warm reds and a Chill Collection that has a mix of 12 chillable whites, rosés and reds. You could even purchase both for a full 24-day advent calendar. Just note that it sells out quickly!

For the Gal On-the-Go

3. Coach Zip Around Wallet

Coach Outlet

There'll be no need for your gift recipient to lug around a huge wallet while running errands anymore, thanks to the two pockets on this Coach wallet. The attached wrist strap makes it easy to tote around and it can even fit up to an iPhone X. It also has eight credit card slots and can hold a good amount of cash and loose change. The stylish checkered leather comes in two different color combos that she’ll proudly sport as she runs into the grocery store for those last-minute ingredients.

For the Busy Mom

4. iRobot Roomba 694 Vacuum


Even though we love a clean home, we don’t love cleaning every day. A robot vacuum will help your giftee keep their floors spic and span in between their regularly scheduled deep cleans, and the iRobot Roomba 694 is just the thing to do it. Equipped with excellent suction, this multi-surface wonder can be programmed using the accompanying app, so any busy mom can set it and forget it. Better yet, it has sensors to prevent it from crashing into walls and furniturea feature she'll definitely appreciate (no scuff marks here!).

For the Lounge Lizard

5. Anine Bing Tyler Sweatshirt

Anine Bing

This perfectly oversized crew neck sweatshirt makes loungewear incredibly fashionable. Featuring the brand's logo, it will look just as good paired with biker shorts a la Princess Diana as it will layered with a collared shirt underneath and a tennis skirt. It’s made of 100% cotton terry cloth fabric that's super cozy for all day wear (seriously, she'll never want to take it off).

For the Cocktail Connoisseur

6. Sweets Indeed Edible Glitter

Sweets Indeed

Edible glitter is everywhere right now (watch this video if you don't believe us). Make sure your favorite cocktail connoisseur has everything they need to zhuzh up their libations with this unflavored vegan glitter. They can simply place it in their chalice of choice, pour some champagne over it and voila! Instant cocktail. As an added bonus, they can also use it to dress up desserts ranging from cookies to cakes.

For the Workout Queen

7. lululemon Align Pants


These leggings feel like a second skin the minute you pull them on, thanks to lululemon’s buttery soft Nulu fabric. Ideal for stretching (or let's face it, lounging), they come in dozens of pretty hues and have a high waistband that keeps everything tucked in without feeling too restrictive. They come in three different lengths, too, so they'll fit your recipient regardless of how tall (or short!) she may be.

For the Insomniac

8. Buffy Breeze Sheet Set


Fact: Your 30s are an optimal time to upgrade from scratchy, cheap bedding. These cooling sheets from Buffy are just what your giftee will need to level up their sleep. We were so blown away by how cozy these sheets were, they earned our pick for softest cooling sheets. Made of eucalyptus material, these breathable linens are OEKO-TEX certified for chemical safety, too.

Best Budget Gift for Women in Their 30S

9. Offline by Aerie Crossover Leggings

Offline by Aerie

Flared leggings (a.k.a the yoga pants she used to wear in college) are officially back, and she’ll be grateful to lounge in them again. The internet is obsessed with this pair because of the super flattering crossover front that gives a slimming effect, making it ideal for pairing with a crop top or an oversized flannel. The high waisted fit and stretchy composition makes them super comfortable for a yoga class or an extended binge-watching session.

For the Perpetually Late

10. Shark FlexStyle System


If you’re shopping for someone who's always in a rush to get ready in the morning, give them the gift of time. How? With the innovative Shark FlexStyle Air Styling & Drying System that acts as both a hair dryer brush and styling tool. After trying it, we found that it works just as well as the pricey Dyson Airwrap and it seriously cuts down on styling time. Your giftee will appreciate that it uses airflow technology to achieve the perfect style without damaging her hair like a curling iron would—because we’ve grown past that.

For the Jewelry Lover

11. Shinery Radiance Wash


It's high time your loved one gave her jewlery a good clean. This inexpensive wash claims to take diamonds to their former glory and reviewers say it removes corrosive spots that they couldn’t get off with anything else. The formula is made with non-toxic, plant based ingredients to brighten and shine your jewelswhile simultaneously moisturizing your hands. Bottom line: It's a useful stocking stuffer they'll thank you for.

For the Trendsetter

12. Astrid & Miyu Initial Necklace

Astrid & Miyu

This simple, timeless keepsake is one that your giftee will be able to wear for years to come. Featuring a personal touch in the form of the initial, we love the inkblot look of the 18-carat gold-plated metal that can pretty much be worn with anything. It also comes on an adjustable 22-inch chain, which will look great with a V-neck top or over a turtleneck sweater. If gold’s not her thing, the pendant also comes in sterling silver.

For the Starter Chef

13. Caraway Cookware Set


They've likely seen the internet-famous Caraway nonstick cookware on their Instagram feed, and for good reason: It has everything they'll need to get started in the kitchen, including a 10.5-inch frying pan, a 6.5-quart Dutch oven, a 4.5-quart sauté pan and a 3-quart sauce pan—there's even a storage setup for it all (lids included). Its seven dreamy color schemes will look absolutely stunning on their stovetop, and it's completely non-toxic, so they can feel good about using it, too. There's a nonstick coating to keep food from sticking, but for any other messes, they can throw them right in the dishwasher.

For the Design Fanatic

14. Capri Blue Volcano Capiz Jar Candle

Capri Blue

There are a lot of great-smelling candles out there, but we’re partial to the Capri Blue Volcano candle, which smells like a tropical paradise. It features a light citrusy scent that's complemented by the fresh smell of greens. To enjoy the candle for as long as possible, gift the massive 50-ounce large size that has a 150-hour burn time. Your recipient will also appreciate the design of the pretty jar, which basically doubles as a piece of art on her mantel long after the candle has finished burning.

For the Homebody

15. Luxome Ultra Plush Throw


Netflix binge-watching nights will be leveled up with the addition of this ultra-cozy oversized knit throw that feels like being wrapped in a big, fluffy cloud. It’s made of a soft and fuzzy bamboo viscose textured knit that was made for cuddling—especially if you get them the extra large size ($215) that measures 75 inches by 100 inches, which is big enough for two people. It comes in nine eye-catching colorways and is low maintenance, too, as it can be thrown into the wash and dried using the lowest heat setting.

Best for the Zen Seeker

16. Vitruvi Essential Oil Diffuser


This might be the most stunning essential oil diffuser we’ve ever seen. The minimalist ceramic base will blend into pretty much any décor scheme, and will melt your giftee's stress away when used with scents such as lavender, eucalyptus or chamomile. It automatically shuts off after three hours, so she'll never have to worry about forgetting to turn it off.

For the One Who's Always Chilly

17. Jenni Kayne Cocoon Cardigan

Jenni Kayne

When it feels like the A/C is blasting in the dead of winter, your giftee will appreciate having this chunky cardigan on hand. Long and oversized with a fluffy feel thanks to the acrylic, alpaca and wool blend, she can easily wrap herself in her official “office cardigan.” Available in four neutral colors, it pretty much goes with any look, and the extra-large buttons add a subtle flair.

For the Game Lover

18. Masters of Mystery Murder Mystery Game

Masters of Mystery

The only thing better than getting the gang together for a game night is getting them together for a murder mystery party! With Masters of Mystery, your giftee can throw an at home or virtual party with themes ranging from Halloween to the 1920's, and more. The company will set guests up with character descriptions and clues that can be accessed on an app. Just be sure to volunteer as the host so she can fully immerse herself on the fun.

For the Chronic Over Packer

19. Tory Burch Ella Tote Bag

Tory Buch

If your giftee is someone who always has tissues, hand sanitizer and an extra sweater hiding in their bag, they’ll appreciate this generously-sized tote. With the classic Tory Burch logo adorning the front, it's big enough for a work commute or even a weekend getaway. Made of durable recycled nylon, it has an interior laptop pocket, as well as a hidden exterior pocket and two additional interior pockets to keep her extra organized.

For the Health-Conscious Chef

20. Our Place Wonder Oven

Our Place

Air frying is still as popular as ever, but the one-trick wonder does seem to take up an unnecessary amount of counter space. That’s why we love the *magical* Wonder Oven from Our Place. It’s compact enough to fit in a small apartment kitchen and can replace your conventional oven altogether with six functions, including  air fry, bake, roast, toast, reheat and broil. It’s pretty enough that she’ll be happy to leave it out on her countertop indefinitely—bonus points if you get her the color that matches the Always Pan ($150) that she always uses. 

For the Mover and Shaker

21. Ugg Ultra Mini Boots


Word on the street is that UGGs are back in style. These ultra-short booties are perfect for anyone who wants something cozy to toss on before a day of errands or chores. They used to be incredibly hard to find, but now you can get her old favorite shoes shipped to her doorstep within days. The shearling-lined interior is incredibly warm and the shoes come in a variety of colors. The shearling-lined interior is incredibly warm, and your giftee will wonder why they stopped wearing them in the first place. 

For the Charcuterie Guru

22. Anthropologie Agate Cheese Board


If your giftee’s The Bachelor viewing parties tend to go hand-in-hand with an expertly arranged charcuterie board, they need this stunning platter to display their hard work. Cut to look like a gemstone, it will be one-of-a-kind, since no two boards are alike, making it extra special. Plus, cleanup after the festivities will be easy, as they can just wipe it down with a damp cloth.

For the Literary Lover

23. Uncommon Goods Book Locket Necklace

Uncommon Goods

Like Rory Gilmore, her nose is always buried in a book and now she can display her love of reading with a pendant that highlights a book written by iconic female authors. Inside each necklace is a quote from her favorite novel that she'll undoubtedly open for anyone who compliments it. 

For the One Who Loved Slumber Parties

24. Sleeper Party Pajama Set


There’s regular pajamas and there’s pajamas that are fit for a slumber party. Adorned with feathers on the cuffs and hems, she’ll immediately have the urge to jump on the bed and start a pillow fight after putting them on. Aside from looking completely fabulous, they’re made of cozy Viscose Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX fabric that are an ethical choice as well. Just note that due to the feather detailing, they are dry clean only and thus, best for special occasions.

For the Deco Art Lover

25. Nuwarhol No. 5 Pop Art


Taking some inspiration from the Art Deco style of Andy Warhol, this Chanel No. 5 pop art is ideal for the perfume and art lover. It comes in six different sizes starting at 24 by 24 inches and going all the way up to 72 by 72 inches, so you can get her the perfect size for that one blank space on her wall that she hasn’t figured out what to do with yet. You can also pick from a traditional infinity frame or an intricate lightbox frame. Either way, it’s bound to be a conversation starter when guests are over.

For the Breadbaker

26. Staub Cast Iron Dutch Oven


Somehow owning a Dutch oven is a quintessential signifier that you are an adult. And with good reason. This incredible piece of cookware is ideal for making cozy soups, braising roasts and even baking bread in the oven. The durable cast iron material will last her for years and it's oven safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, making it useful for those recipes that require you to start on the stovetop and finish off in the oven. Trust us, this is on her list even if she doesn’t know it yet. 

For the Novice Mixologist

27. Our Place Party Coupes

Our Place

If she's finally perfected making espresso martinis at home, she needs the perfect glasses to sip them from. These Party Coupes from Our Place just launched in September and they offer a stunning way to enjoy everything from her favorite glass of Chianti to her morning parfait. Made of durable hand-blown soda lime glass, she’ll be able to stack the set of four without worrying about them chipping (and save some cabinet space as well).

For the Jewelry Stacker

28. Kelly Rose Flex Bangles

Kelly Rose

If she's finally perfected making espresso martinis at home, she needs the perfect glasses to sip them from. These Party Coupes from Our Place just launched in September and they offer a stunning way to enjoy everything from her favorite glass of Chianti to her morning parfait.

For the Skincare Tryer

29. Solawave Light Therapy Mask


Our 30s are usually when we start thinking more about our skin. If your giftee feels like she’s tried everything under the sun for clearing pesky adult acne or softening incoming wrinkles, she might appreciate this LED mask, which uses red light therapy to help reduce fine lines, dark circles, blemishes and dark spots, according to the brand. There’s also a bacteria-clearing blue light therapy setting to target acne-causing bacteria to prevent future spots from forming.

For the Post-Shower Staller

30. Cozy Earth Silk Short Robe

Cozy Earth

If your girlfriend is the type to lounge around for ages after getting out of the shower (guilty as charged), this silk robe will be the first thing she reaches for. Made from 100% mulberry silk that’s treated with aloe vera, it'll feel incredibly soothing against her skin as she moseys around her home. It has a loose fit to it, and the three-quarter length sleeves won't get in her way while she makes coffee or puts on her makeup.

For the Active One

31. Hydragun HeatPod Sauna Blanket


Whether she’s a marathoner or active pickleballer, she’s tried a ton of gadgets like massage guns and acupressure mats to relieve her of aches and pains. Next on her list will be this innovative sauna blanket that uses heat therapy to help her recover faster by increasing her blood circulation and it can even help reduce stress, according to the brand. She can just slip into it and enjoy temperatures up to 176 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 60 minutes at a time. It’s easy to fold up into the included carry case, and she’ll be calling you to chat while she’s relaxing in it. 

For the One Who Holds Her Purse

32. Bagnet Magnetic Purse Hanger


There is nothing more frustrating than that seat at the bar that doesn’t have a purse hook. If your giftee shudders at the thought of putting her precious Telfar on the floor, then she needs this innovative purse hook. It looks like a key chain, but it’s actually a powerful magnet that can be attached to seats, bathroom stall walls and more to keep a bag from touching the disgusting floor. It’s not great for heavy bags, but our reviewer found that it kept handbags up to eight pounds completely secure.

For the Tea Lover

33. DavidsTea Infuser Mug


Sipping loose leaf tea is elite and your giftee will agree that it tastes so much better than the bagged alternatives. This classy glass mug features an infuser so she can infuse tea to her heart’s content, while the double wall insulation keeps tea warm for hours. It holds 16-ounces, which is plenty enough to enjoy while reading a good book. 

For the One Who Packs Heavy

34. Étoile Duo Vanity Case


This just might be the bag that finally holds all of the beauty products she brings on every trip. With a removable divider insert, the Duo Vanity Case is tall enough to fit bottles standing upright and wide enough to store large eyeshadow palettes. It will keep her nighttime skincare routine separate from her makeup—and she’ll even have extra room for toiletries. Plus, the bonus fold-out mirror allows her to do her makeup when the bathroom is full.

For the Hydrated One

35. Stanley Quencher Tumbler


The Stanley tumbler has become the IT water bottle, and for good reason. Not only does it hold 40-ounces of water so she’ll be refilling it less often, but it also has double-wall insulation to actually keep said water cold for hours. It also has a convenient handle, can fit in most cup holders and has a straw, so she’ll be more inclined to actually drink her eight cups a day. With so many pretty hues to choose from, she might ask for another after getting this one.

For the One Trying to Get Into Reading

36. Book of the Month Membership

Book of the Month

After some wild times in her 20s, she’s made it a goal to read at least 12 books a year, though with so many to choose from, she might be a little stumped on what to read next. With a Book of the Month subscription, she’ll be able to pick from five to seven curated titles each month to help narrow down her choices.Plus, Book of the Month makes it easy to email or give the gift of a 3-book, 6-book or 12-book subscription to get her started.

For the Working Traveler

37. Béis The Front Pocket Carry-On


Created by actress Shay Mitchell, Beis seems to have a solution for every travel problem. Case in point: This carry-on suitcase that features a front pocket for your laptop, so she won’t have to expose her luggage when TSA asks her to put it through security. The padded and protected front will keep it safe from any cracks, and it has other much-appreciated features like a padded handle, built in TSA locks and a weight limit indicator. It’s 22-inch size makes it good for shorter trips and the interior has plenty of dividers and pockets to keep her organized for her upcoming business trip.

For the One That’s Always Cold

38. J.Crew Cashmere Oversized Wrap


If she constantly talks about wanting to bring a blanket to her freezing office, this oversized cashmere wrap be a godsend for her. Not only is it super cozy, but she can also wear it as a chunky scarf because it’s not super bulky, which also makes it good for travel. She'll be glad to know that it meets the Good Cashmere Standard, which ensures that it's an ethical and cruelty-free gift as well. (P.S. Don't forget to use code SHOPNOW to save 40 percent.)

For the Lip Balm Fanatic

39. Violette_Fr Bisou Balm Duo


You can give her the gift of bouche mordue (“just bitten lips” in French), with these fan favorite lip balms. The unique lipstick-meets-balm hydrates, while leaving behind a soft matte finish, and you can pick from five different shades that range from subtle to bold.

For the Upping Her Skincare Routine

40. Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm


It's imperative to remove any makeup after a night out so you don't wake up with clogged pores and blemishes. The Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm magically melts away makeup using a combination of nourishing plant oils and it feels so sumptuously soft to the touch that she’ll feel like every day is a spa day whenever she uses it.
