Free People Serenity Corset Cami
We’re intrigued by this “corset cami” from Free People. It’s got all the seductiveness of an actual corset but with more versatility. She can lean into the sexiness of it all or easily dress the cropped, sweetheart-neck silhouette down with a pair of jeans. — Logan Mahan, Assistant Editor

Part waterproof rubber clog and part ultra-cozy slipper, the Tasman X has a removable liner and chic lugged sole that make this UGG bootie the perfect all-conditions gift for her.
The Hair Towel by Crown Affair
$45 for a hair towel may seem insane, but one dry with Crown Affair’s microfiber towel and there is really no going back. That’s because this towel isn’t like other towels — it absorbs water while preventing hair damage, so she’s left with shiny, healthy-looking hair after every shower. — L.M.
Foria “Me Time” Trio

Everlane The Perform 24/7 Legging
Somehow Everlane managed to perfect its Perform Legging (a legging we already thought was pretty damn perfect). The new and improved 24/7 pant still has all the same lightweight compression and sweat-wicking properties that made the original a best-seller but now boasts an ultra-soft finish that feels like cozy brushed cotton, becoming her go-to winter legging. — L.M.
Lunya Washable Silk High Rise Pant Set
This laidback sleepwear set includes a flattering high-waisted pant (with a ventilating side slit if she sleeps hot) and a roomy cropped button-up top, each made of 100% washable silk. — L.M.

Guarantee she never loses her water bottle at the gym again with this personalized vacuum-insulated, stainless steel bottle from Australian travel brand July. It’ll keep beverages warm for 12 hours and cold for 24, and it features a slip-proof matte coating that feels smooth to the touch. — L.M.
Glossier Solid Fragrance
Glossier is mainly known for its beauty and skincare products (many of which your lady probably owns), but the dark horse in their catalog of beauty products is the Glossier You perfume. The three base notes are meant to melt into her skin, so what she (and you) will be smelling is the clean, warm, lovely scent that is her essence.

The collab includes brushes beloved by Daoud that she’s used on A-list clients from Miley Cyrus to Rihanna. They’re lightweight, easy to travel with and will have any novice applying makeup like a pro. — L.M.
Catbird Isabel’s Treasure Signet Ring
In my experience, women pretty much always want jewelry. Recently, though, I’ve been especially drawn to personalized jewelry — signet rings chief among them. This one, set with opals and diamonds on either side, is a contemporary spin on an otherwise classic style but one that she could very feasibly hand down someday, too. — Lindsay Rogers, Assistant Editor
We’ve always enjoyed drinking our wine and cocktails out of W&P’s reusable, travel-friendly Porter Glass, but we really love the brand’s newest pattern offering — Gold Terrazzo — which gives the appearance of confetti dancing around the glass, making every sip feel like a mini celebration. — L.M.
prAna Sayama Long Jacket
You can truly never go wrong with something that errs more on the practical side, as long as it’s carefully chosen and super tasteful. Enter the Sayama Long Jacket from prAna, which is quite literally the best winter jacket I’ve ever owned. Featuring a host of dynamic details, it’s super soft, warm and available in three colorways — though, for what it’s worth, the Camel is sharp. — L.R.
Dior J’adior Slingback Pump
One of the most highly sought-after shoes at the moment, the J’Adior slingback pump exudes sleek sophistication. The nude patent calfskin, two-tone embroidered ‘J’ADIOR’ ribbon, darling flat bow and 4-inch heel tie flawlessly together for an elegant, enviable accessory. — L.M.

A jigsaw puzzle or a piece of art? With Piecework, it’s both. Once she’s finished with this intricate, “electrifying” 500 piece puzzle she can frame her creation in a 20 x 27 frame. — L.M.
Do I love flowers and jewelry? Yes. But do you know what I also love, arguably even more? My Theragun Elite the morning after a long run. An ultra-quiet smart percussive therapy device designed to reduce tension and release soreness with advanced sound insulation — the Theragun Elite is a recovery essential. If she’s active, or even just prone to muscle soreness, she’ll be eternally grateful to be on the receiving end of one of these. Or, if the $400 device is a bit too much, a small (and cheaper) massage ball works similar wonders. — L.R.
Great Jones Sweetie Pie
Because she needs a cute-ass pie dish, duh. This 10-inch one from Great Jones distributes heat evenly and features a wide, wavy rim that’s not just a part of its whimsical design — it’ll also help guide her crust crimping. In fact, GJ has a plethora of giftable cookware. — L.M.

If the winter is unkind to her skin, she needs this plant-powered, whipped moisturizer designed to repair irritated, deathly dry and eczema-prone skin. — L.M.
Brooks Ghost 13
We love shoes, and they need not be of the red-bottom variety. A few months ago, I got my hands on a pair of Brooks Ghost 13s, touted as being the best Ghost yet, and it’s totally revolutionized my training. While it’s worth noting that running shoes are largely a matter of preference, these are classic, no-fuss everyday training shoes that will keep her comfortable for as many miles as her legs can handle. — L.R.
Snif makes gifting perfume a breeze, and a little unconventional. This collection from the DTC fragrance brand includes three enticing, gender-neutral scents, their full-sized bottles and three mini-sized samples. She has seven days to test out each fragrance, and whatever she doesn’t like, you can send back (you’ll only be charged for the full-size bottles she keeps) — but be prepared for her to love them all. — L.M.
Rimowa Essential Cabin in Flamingo Red
One of the best things about Rimowa is that every season a new collection is launched to feature a new color palette inspired by a different far-flung destination — earlier this month, they announced the “bold landscapes” of Tanzania to be their latest source of inspiration. The two new colors, Azure and Flamingo, are available on a range of suitcases, bags and accessories. If you guessed that I’m currently coveting a new carry-on in Flamingo Red for myself this Valentine’s Day? You’d be correct. — L.R.

I don’t dole out the phrase “life-changing” often, but this Lip Oil Treatment from Black-owned beauty brand Ami Colé genuinely altered my entire being — but specifically my lips. Using clean, vegan and cruelty-free ingredients like passion fruit and camellia seed oil, the 3-in-1 gloss provides a gorgeous shine while keeping lips nourished. A saving grace if she suffers from perpetually chapped lips. — L.M.
