In a world that often measures value in dollars and cents, the true essence of a gift lies not in its price tag but in the thought and care that goes into choosing it. I always prioritize considering the person, but here are a few ideas to get you started.
- Personalized Vinyl: For the music lover, consider a custom vinyl with a cover photo and a playlist curated with their favorite songs or ones that are meaningful to your relationship.
- Suede Slippers: While the UGG Tasman slipper is a hit winter shoe, I have found genuine mohair and suede ones from Quince that are just as nice, if not nicer, and with a price tag less than half of the UGG brand.
- Hosanna Revival Bible: Over the past three years, I have been journaling through the Bible with a specific person in mind to gift that Bible one day. Having a legacy where my kids or loved ones can see what the Lord was doing in my heart is one of the things I want to be remembered by most. Bibles from loved ones are some of my greatest treasures. This would be a great idea for a mom or grandma.
- Personalized Cutting Board: I have a small index card of my Grandmother's Chocolate Icing recipe in my kitchen, and I smile every time I see it. I love the idea of having a recipe of a loved one engraved onto a board like this for display.
- Softest Blanket: There is a reason this blanket is on my gift list two years in a row. It's that good. I seriously buy it for everyone I know because it feels like a pure cloud. Under $20.
- Hokas: It doesn't matter if she runs, walks, or just moves; these shoes are the best, most comfortable ones out there. Great for anyone who wants to have happy feet.
- Custom Charm Necklace: I love the idea of compiling meaningful charms and things she loves into a gorgeous charm necklace. This Etsy shop puts a lot of thought and effort into each of their pieces. Alternatively, you could build and DIY.
- Electric Lighter: Probably more of a stocking stuffer, but this is always a hit at favorite things parties. They are good to have in your purse or around the house. Perfect for the candle lover.
- Neck Warmer and Massager: I don't have this, but I certainly need it. I know quite a few moms who would appreciate it too! Reasonably priced with great reviews.
- Custom Book Stamp: Many of my friends are book lovers, and this is the loveliest personalized gift!
- Cashmere Scarf: I got my first cashmere piece a little over a year ago and was changed forever. Everyone loves something that feels like a hug, and these scarves are perfect for women of all ages.
- Custom LL Bean Tote Bag: I have three and use them daily. They are so fun to personalize, not just with initials but with things like "full of it," "saucy," or "overthinker"—something funny, cute, and unique for them.
- Our Place Pan: I have had this for years and use it every single day. It's such a happy cookware piece and is made so well! Can't recommend it enough, or any of their other products, to be honest.
Roller Skates - My personal pair has brought me so much joy, I feel like the woman in your life will love them as well!
Pickle Ball Set - The sport thats completely taken over. Whether she's played before or you want to get her started,
Cashmere Sweater - I was thirty years old when I got my first cashmere sweater and I am so sad I was so late to the game. Give her a hug in a sweater.
Samsung Frame TV - I keep sharing it, because it's the most noticed or should I unnoticed thing in our home.
Bread Machine - I bought one for myself after my birthday last year and love how easy it is to make. I don't know too many women tho don't love good homemade bread.
