We understand that finding the perfect gift for the women in your life can be taxing. It’s why every holiday season, Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day we hand you a thorough guide to the best apparel, accessories, home goods and wellness products you can gift in hopes of making yourself look like a totally thoughtful stud. But, you see, gift-giving is a year-round undertaking if you’re doing it right. Birthdays and anniversaries also call for thoughtful, first-rate gifts, as does any number of other totally random days for no reason whatsoever. It’s why we’re starting this new column where, each month, we’ll compile an extensive list of the best gifts you can give to the lovely women in your life, curated by real live women.
Reformation Stacy Dress
The ideal LBD, Reformation’s Stacy Dress is like the little sister to the Cassi Dress (another sexy, well-fitted black dress). It’s short and sweet yet surprisingly soft and stretchy. With a straight neckline, flare skirt and thick tank straps, she’ll feel as hot as she looks.
Wknd Nation Boardroom Shorts
While you can’t go wrong with anything from Wknd Nation, the new cozy loungewear line from former Sex and the City stylist Sofia Karvela and industry veteran Phuong Ireland that’s making comfortable clothing look super chic, the brand’s new Boardroom Joggers are the perfect combination of fashionable and comfy with a lightweight, ultra-soft cotton-terry blend and unique patterning.
Korres Apothecary Wild Rose Night-Brightening Sleeping Facial
Overnight masks can often be a wash, but this Night-Brightening Sleeping Facial from Korres, a Greek beauty brand specializing in natural beauty products inspired by homeopathic remedies, delivers a noticeable glow the morning after. This overnight facial utilizes vitamin C and wild rose extract to boost dull, uneven tone and texture for brighter, smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
Born Rosé Barcelona Organic Still Rosé
Named after Barcelona’s artistic and bustling El Born neighborhood, Born Rosé launched in the U.S. this past May with an Organic Still Rosé and Organic Brut in bottled and canned offerings. The brand’s Still Rosé is a refreshingly tasteful beveragino with a super trendy bottle. Skip the ubiquitous (and honestly kinda basic) “Summer Water” this year, and gift her a bottle of this instead.
WLDKAT Orchid Stem Cell + Magnolia Berry Adaptogen Eye Gel
Eye creams can also be a wash, but we’re really digging this creamy, dreamy and innovative formula from skincare/beauty brand WLDKAT. The brand’s recently launched eye gel is formulated with Magnolia Berry, an adaptogen powerhouse and antioxidant-rich Orchid Stem Cell that work together to hydrate and soften the appearance of fine lines. She can use this lightweight gel in the AM and PM to achieve a dewy, glowy, hydrated look.
JW PEI Eva Shoulder Bag
This adorable 90s classic baguette bag from JW PEI is the ideal petite accessory she can take to brunch or on a night out. The croc-embossed vegan leather lends the bag a bit of lavishness, while the purse itself is surprisingly affordable.
Rag & Bone Retro Runner Sneakers
This Rag & Bone sneaker dons a retro-style, creamy colorblock pattern that’ll pair nicely with casual jeans or a dainty sundress.
Parade Triangle Bralette
While Parade is most known for its underwear, the company ventured into the brassiere space in late March with a sustainable, colorful and size-inclusive line of bralettes and we can confidently say … they’re pretty awesome. The brand’s Triangle Bralette, in particular, is impressively comfortable but still wildly sexy for a bralette. The bra features adjustable straps (that don’t dig!) along with the brand’s AirBand design “for an ultra-light underboob feel.”
Missoma Short Beaded Necklace
The hottest trend in jewelry right now? A colorful, fun, beaded necklace reminiscent of the ones you’d string together in kindergarten, except with higher quality materials and arguably better craftsmanship. Contemporary jewelry brand Missoma is known for making delicate, personalized and truly stellar pieces, and they’ve jumped on the trend with this gorgeous 18ct gold-plated, multi-colored beaded necklace she can sport both every day and on fancier occasions.
Jungmaven Sespe Romper
I have been living in this Jungmaven romper ever since I got it (so, about three weeks). I’m not even kidding, it’s the perfect summer WFH fit — roomy, lightweight, insanely comfy and extremely cute. The adjustable straps allow for a super relaxed or more structured fit while the deep pockets fit hands, chapstick, phone and keys comfortably.
Chloé Woody Logo-Print Canvas and Leather Slippers
The ultimate summer slip-on, these canvas and leather Chloé slippers would look just dreamy paired with a flowy caftan and a beach house in the Hamptons. But they’re not just for looks. Boasting soft suede footbeds, the designer slippers are as comfortable as they are chic.
ROEN Mood 4 Ever Palette
With four dazzling neutrals in a conveniently compact palette, ROEN’s Mood 4 Ever features a unique formula that utilizes a powder and a cream for a full-coverage look that’ll last all night.
Picnic Time Wine & Cheese Picnic Basket
Picnic Time’s eye-catching wicker/canvas picnic tote/basket makes planning a romantic wine-and-cheese date in the park … a walk in the park. The basket comes complete with all the essentials: a wooden cutting board, cheese knife, corkscrew and two secure pockets for two bottles of win.
Gucci Generation Round-Frame Acetate Sunglasses
Black frames, marbled green arms and, of course, Gucci’s iconic golden GG emblem at the temples, these retro two-tone shades from the luxury fashion house are giving glam Emerald City vibes, and I’m here for it.
Andie The Malibu
Andie supplies some stellar, size-inclusive swimwear. Their one-pieces, in particular, are equal amounts flattering and comfortable, and this style from the brand is an obvious example. The Malibu is a versatile suit with a fully adjustable neckline that can be buttoned all the way down for a sexier fit or up for fuller coverage. Pair it with jean shorts and it makes for a modish bodysuit.
Outdoor Voices Sport Polo
Outdoor Voices’ latest clothing drop is an ode to amateur sporting clubs. Included in the sporty collection is OV’s spin on the classic polo. Designed for movement and breathability, the Sport Polo is a cropped polo, adding a bit of trendiness and sex appeal to the timeless atheltic piece without sacrificing performance. She’ll gladly wear this when you drag her out to the golf course.
Parachute Sateen Sheet Set
Crafted in Portugal from 100% premium, certified long-staple Egyptian cotton, Parachute’s Sateen Sheet Set just screams luxury. The sateen feels smooth against skin, is impressively enduring and only gets better over time.
Flor Martini Glasses, Set of 4
Time to recycle her drab martini glasses for this colorful set of handblown vessels she and all her dinner guests will love.
Diptyque Philosykos Eau de Parfum
If she’s a fan of Diptyque’s captivating, opulent candles, she’ll adore the Parisian parfumerie’s equally exquisite fragrances. Philosykos Eau de Parfum evokes “the memory of a Greek summer at Mount Pelion,” where a natural grove of fig trees grew.
Venus Organic Pearl Gold Earring Small
A simple, delicate but still gorgeous piece of jewelry from NYC-based brand Aurate. The small shell-shaped earring is crafted from recycled gold vermeil and holds two elegant organic pearls.
