“Women. They are a complete mystery.” - Steven Hawking

Are you just as baffled about what to get the special woman in your life this year, and finding that it's Christmas Eve and out of ideas? Even if you’re a lady yourself, sometimes you need a little inspiration when it comes to surprising a loved one with the perfect gift. Whether it’s your sister, aunt, or a new coworker, you can never go wrong with feminine gifts like candles, chocolates, and flowers – though they do tend to be over-done and stereotypical. To mix it up and suggest something fresh, here are some of our favorite picks for the ladies in your life.

1. Yogavated Leggings

Do you have a friend whose Instagram feed always gives you major fitspo? She’ll give you a pass for skipping on 5:30 a.m. boot camp class when she opens her new pair of yoga pants from Yogavated. Handmade using sustainable materials, these artistic yoga pants are designed in collaboration with artists that inspire and motivate the company. Your friend will feel chic wearing these Voyager Rise Leggings on her morning jog or the Dreamer Right Legging while running errands (because let’s be real – yoga pants aren’t just for the gym).

2. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk

Whether your sister was the first to try contouring or keeps her beauty routine low-key, she’ll love this neutral lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury. Buying cosmetics can be tricky sometimes, but thankfully this lipstick’s nude pink shade looks good on every skin tone. The color will enhance the natural hue of her lips and make them appear fuller and wider. As a plus, the versatility of its matte finish will take her from the boardroom to date night.

3. Artisan Cheese Collection Gift Crate

Yes, Tina Fey had her night cheese. But with six premium options to try, the Artisan Cheese Collection Gift Crate will make any time of the day the perfect time for cheese. Think delicious Sierra Nevada herb & garlic cheese in the morning, smooth Vella Mezzo Secco in the afternoon, and buttery Bellwether Farms Carmody to finish off the night. Bonus: This gourmet assortment of farm-fresh cheeses comes beautifully arranged in a wooden crate, meaning you won’t need to worry about wrapping.

4. Soy Candle from P.F. Candle Co.

Since 2013, this Los Angeles-based fragrance company has expanded from a two-person team operating out of a studio apartment into a team of 31. These soy candles, hand-poured into apothecary-inspired amber jars, will make any home or office smell and look beautiful. Choose from best-selling scents like bold and complex Teakwood & Tobacco, classic Patchouli Sweetgrass and earthy Nag Champa Special.

5. Starbucks Coffee and Tazo Tea Collection Gift Basket

Maybe she’s a mom that’s always on the go, or a coworker with a side hustle. Regardless of the reason, women with a need for caffeine will appreciate receiving this collection of Starbucks coffee and Tazo tea. Help her conquer the day with bold French roast coffee, double chocolate hot chocolate, chai tea, cinnamon sugar sables, and more.

6. HASLRA Premium Soft Warm Microfiber Fuzzy Socks

Our childhood selves would be baffled if they knew that socks are actually the best Christmas gift you can receive. Indeed, there’s not much better than slipping on a cute fuzzy pair on a cold winter’s day. These microfiber socks will keep their feet warm, soft, and sweat-free. With an assortment of unique designs and colors, they’re perfect for jazzing up a favorite pair of shoes or lounging around the house.

7. Houdini Blanc de Noir Champagne Collection Gift Basket

Who says you need a special occasion to pop some bubbles? Celebrate the special woman in your life with this classy gift basket. Houdini’s Blanc de Noir vintage champagne is made with a blend of pinot noir and chardonnay, using hints of lemon and strawberry to create a fizzy indulgence that is bright and crisp. She’ll also enjoy noshing on gourmet treats like vanilla truffles, smoked salmon, and garlic & herb cheese wedges.

8. Natori ‘Nirvana’ Midi Robe

Every gal on your list will look forward to slipping into this lightweight robe. Available in sizes XS to XL, its soft, fleecy fabric is well-suited for any season. It’s not a bad idea to pair this with our Cliffside Vineyard Lavender Vanilla Spa Collection Gift Basket. She’ll be able to unwind in comfort while sipping on a chilled glass of chardonnay and indulging in deliciously-scented bath products like bath caviar, body soufflé, and a skin scrub.

9. Ghirardelli Chocolate Company Tower

Chocophile (noun): Lover of chocolate. Does this sound like someone you know? They’ll go crazy for this pile of chocolates from America's oldest chocolate maker. Each blue Ghirardelli box comes packed with decadent sweet treats like dark & caramel sea salt, chocolate chip cookies, white mocha drink, caramel corn, and double chocolate cocoa.

10. Kate Spade ‘One In A Million’ Initial Pendant Necklace

Is your friend a proclaimed fashionista? Or does your mother-in-law wants a unique way to boast about her grandchildren? This beautiful gold-plated necklace from Kate Spade will add a touch of elegance to any outfit in their wardrobe. Choose a pendant engraved with their initial, or choose the initial of a loved one so they’ll always be close to their heart.
