Finding the perfect gift for the women in your life can be taxing, if not downright stressful. And though our themed gift guides help you choose the best apparel, accessories, home and wellness products for the most important of holidays (we’re looking at you Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day), gift giving tends to be a rear-round undertaking for the ladies we love.

Which is why InsideHook has come up with a way to keep you flush with ideas for all kinds of gifts — be it birthdays, anniversaries or just random acts of thoughtfulness. Curated by women, for women, this monthly column is your refuge for all your gift giving needs.

Fleur Du Mal

Fleur du Mal Frankie Lace Boned Balconette Bra and Frankie Lace Thong

This delicately sexy balconette bra and lacy thong duo from lingerie brand Fleur du Mal features elegant French leavers lace and trimmed silk charmeuse. Best of all, the little black set provides a subtle lift at the top and a cheeky look at the bottom.

Alo Yoga

Alo Yoga Varsity Tennis Skirt

Even if tennis isn’t her thing, she’ll still enjoy (and look incredibly hot in) this Varsity Tennis Skirt from Alo Yoga. The style is currently all the rage, and this particular skirt from the fitness brand is functional, cute and features a comfy four-way stretch and inner short.

Coach

Coach Soft Tabby Shoulder Bag

This best-selling Soft Tabby Shoulder Bag from Coach is the personification of fall. Pictured here in a Brass/Canyon multi-colorway, the smooth leather and suede accessory will pair perfectly with that new camel coat we know you’re planning on buying her.

Sarah Flint

Sarah Flint Perfect Pump 85

These are, no joke, the comfiest pair of pumps she’ll ever own. Especially if she’s making her way back to the office this fall. Sarah Flint’s Perfect Pump 85 is completely walkable and will transition from the office to a night out with ease.

Open Spaces

Open Spaces Entryway Rack

Open Spaces specializes in high-quality, versatile products that will keep your life, and home, in order. This sturdy, minimalist Entryway Rack is a best-seller and essential addition to any home. Available in a slew of good-looking colors it is designed to keep books, shoes, plants and all her other knick-knacks on display in an aesthetically pleasing, yet tidy, way.

DW Home

DW Home Fresh Brew

DW Home’s Fresh Brew candle smells just like its name suggests, a freshly brewed cup of coffee. So, throw those pumpkin spice and apple cider scents to the curb and get her ready for fall with this heavenly caffeinated option.

Sephora

Saie Really Great Gloss Oil-Infused Shiny Sheer Lipgloss

A perfect everyday lipgloss, this oil-infused formula from Saie delivers luxurious shine in every application.

Violet Grey

Byredo Mixed Emotions Eau De Parfum

Using notes of soothing maté, sweet cassis and calming black tea, parfumerie Byredo has crafted a calming, comforting fragrance dubbed Mixed Emotions. The scent “presents an olfactive sketch of our current, collective state of mind,” and may even get you out of the doghouse next time you piss her off.

Miansai

Miansai Celeste Hoops

Disco is not dead as proven by this unique pair of statement earrings. Polished in gold vermeil, these wildly stunning hoops from Miansai will definitely make a statement.

Rose Piscine

Rosé Piscine

Help her make the most of these last days of rosé season with this wine meant to be drunk on the rocks. Lifted from the enviable sunbathers and well educated party-goers of the French Riviera, this haute libation is the perfect gift to keep summer going for all your favorite day drinkers.

Shopbop

Sam Edelman Loraine Loafers

These Sam Edelman flats are going to be her other fabulous work shoe. Classic, minimal and made from cowhide leather, they go with just about everything.

Sephora

You know what they say: A Banana Bright Eye Creme application a day keeps the dermatologist at bay. But seriously, this eye cream is one of our all-time favorites and sure to become a permanent installation in her daily skincare product lineup. Packed with vitamin C and collagen, it’s the perfect antidote for normal, oily, combination, dry and sensitive skin types. Plus, bonus! It smells delicious, too.

Crafted from reusable silicone, she’ll also get to show off her environmentally friendly side alongside her entertaining prowess. This pack from Gir includes ten colorful straws, all of which are stain, odor and microbe-resistant.

Violet Grey

Fur Stuble Cream

As a woman, I’m here to tell you something very important: Hair removal? It’s no fun at all. But the mundane, and frankly annoying, grooming ritual can be enhanced with FUR’s super impressive Stubble Cream. Whether she shaves, lasers or waxes, this highly rated cream can be applied to moisturize, hydrate and soften stubble wherever it may be.

Shopbop

We’re not finished with slip dresses just yet. This simple, lightweight sateen dress is effortless yet striking — and is something she can wear all four seasons.

Inside Weather

Floret Art Print with Natural Frame (8″ x 10″)

Wall art can make for a thoughtful gift, with the caveat you understand her taste. So why not take a gander at these prints from Inside Weather, which are reasonably priced yet allow for total customization. Choose between four different sizes, six different frame finishes, 60 different prints and voilà — you have a considerate and stunning custom piece of art to gift her.

Casper

Sateen Sheet Set + Duvet Cover

This sateen sheet and duvet cover set from Casper is both luxurious and unbelievably soft. Crafted from 100% cotton, it promises to deliver a comfortably smooth feel — meaning after one sleep with these sheets, she’ll be thanking you later.

Shopfiol

National Prosecco Day Tasting & Cocktail Class w/ Mixologist Sam Rivers

Did you know National Prosecco Day was earlier this month? Probably not, TBH, and, well, you missed it anyway. The good news is you still have a few days left to take advantage of FIOL’s special package in honor of the tasty occasion, which includes a bottle of Prosecco, sparkling rosé and access to a virtual tasting and cocktail class with mixologist Sam Rivers. Make a last-minute date night out of it, or just let her enjoy some bubbly in peace.

Lelo

Sila by Lelo

We’re all for bringing toys into partnered play, but sometimes it’s nice to offer the woman in your life something that’s just for her. Give her the gift of self-pleasure (and a little alone time) with SILA, a luxe clitoral massager from Lelo.

Rimowa

Rimowa Iridescent Case for iPhone 12 & 12 Pro

Rimowa is one of our all-time favorite luggage brands and we’re in a near constant state of lusting after its various product offerings. Most recently, we’ve been eyeing this Iridescent Case for the iPhone 12 or 12 Pro. Reminiscent of Rimowa’s signature luggage, it’ll serve as a reminder of her favorite trip or of all the adventures not yet had, while simultaneously providing premium protection anywhere she may roam.
