Maelove Glow Maker Serum, available at Maelove, $29.95

There are a lot of serums out there, making lofty claims about how much they’ll improve skin, but Maelove’s Glow Maker really lives up to the hype. If the fact that it was developed by MIT scientists is not enough, it also costs less than $30, and it really will get her skin glowing in no time.

Function of Beauty is revolutionizing haircare with custom shampoo and conditioner that’s formulated for everyone’s individual hair needs. After taking a quiz, she’ll receive a set made just for her. The ability to choose the color and scent make this gift feel even more special.

A set of silk hair scrunchies

Slip Pure Silk Scrunchie Set, available at Sephora, $39

These silk scrunchies create less friction than cotton ones, which means less breakage and frizz for her strands. If she wouldn’t likely splurge on these for herself, she’ll appreciate receiving them as a gift.

Gift a Catbird E-Gift Card, from $25

A dainty jewelry holder

Catbird Swan Ring Holder, available at Catbird, $32

A jewelry holder is always a good gift idea for any woman who wants to organize their jewelry. This pretty little swan will look great on her nightstand or dresser. It’s a small, but beautiful piece of decor, and super practical in that it can hold rings, necklaces, and more.

A stylish and comfortable pair of shoes

Allbirds Wool Runners, available at Allbirds, $98

Popular shoe startup Allbirds is equal parts cool and comfortable. You can’t go wrong with any of its styles, but if she’s already got a pair of the original Wool Runners, try the Wool Runners Mizzle or Tree Runners, both styles that we love around here at Insider Reviews.

A high-tech water bottle that sanitizes itself

With the press of a button, the cap uses UV-C LED technology to neutralize bacteria in 60 seconds. The bottle also activates itself every two hours to keep water fresh and interior surfaces clean. 

A succulent that’ll spruce up her desk space

Lula’s Garden Bliss Garden, available at Lula’s Garden, $28

Virtual cooking classes for the aspiring chef

Sur La Table Online Cooking Classes, available at Sur La Table, starting at $29 per household

Gifting a full experience to the women in your life is perhaps one of the best ways to spend time with them. Led by expert chefs, these virtual cooking classes will have her running around the kitchen and having fun all at once. The lessons last for 90 to 120 minutes and cover tons of dishes and beverages.

A cold brew coffee maker for her mornings

OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker, available at Williams Sonoma, $51.95

If she always craves cold brew, give her the tools to make it herself from the comfort of her own kitchen. This device is super easy to use and can make a cup that rivals the cold brew from the coffee shop since she can use her favorite grounds.

A really good mug she can take camping or into the office

Yeti Rambler 14 oz. Mug, available at Yeti and Backcountry, from $29.95

With a vacuum-insulated interior and secure top, this mug works for just about any occasion. Whether she wants to tote her hot oatmeal to the office or enjoy some chili while camping, this is what she’ll want to use. 

A calming weighted blanket

Casper Weighted Blanket, available at Casper, from $152.10

Weighted blankets are filled with pounds of microbeads that provide constant pressure. The result is a hug-like sensation that soothes, relieves anxiety and stress, and makes going to bed super comfortable. 

Cups of healthy food she can take on the go

Daily Harvest 9-Cup Gift Box, available at Daily Harvest, $75

If she’s always trying to find new ways to prioritize health into her busy schedule, help her out with some Daily Harvest cups. You can prepay for nine cups, which she can redeem and pick out herself. She can choose from smoothies, oat bowls, soups, and other bowls of healthy food that are super easy to take on the go. 

A piece of cast iron cookware she’ll use to make all of her favorite dishes

Le Creuset Cast Iron Braiser, available at Le Creuset, from $200

Unlike most cooking tools, a cast iron pan actually gets better with time. This braiser from Le Creuset is loved by Insider Reviews editors, comes in a bunch of different colors, and is the perfect size for the kinds of one-pot, saucy pasta dishes we make all the time.

It’s wide enough and deep enough that she won’t have to worry about adding too much liquid and having the contents spill over the sides. It’s also great for cooking meats and veggies since there’s plenty of surface area, so everything has room to get nice and crispy.

Plus, the earbuds will easily and instantly connect to all of her Apple products.

A Polaroid camera for instant snapshots

Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 Instant Camera, available at Urban Outfitters, $69

In a world where most of our pictures stay on our smartphones, having an instant camera makes snapping life’s everyday moments a little more exciting. Waiting for pictures to develop is always exciting, but what she’ll love even more is actually getting to hold onto them.

A small smart speaker

Google Home Mini (2nd Generation), available at Best Buy, $24.99

This little Google Assistant speaker is loaded with smart features. She can play music, check the weather, and control the rest of her smart home system with just her voice. 

A Kindle so she can read literally anything, anywhere

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, available at Amazon, $139.99

While there’s no denying that flipping through real, paper pages is a great feeling, an ebook reader is a great option for travelers and commuters (when it’s time to do these things again). She can access her entire library of ebooks on this thing, which makes it easy to always dive into a new book. We’re partial to Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite with its glare-free display and waterproofing, which allows you to read literally anywhere.

A powerful wireless speaker

Sonos One (Gen 2), available at Best Buy, $219.99

Sleek and minimal, the Sonos One won’t overwhelm or distract from her existing decor. It can play music and podcasts via Bluetooth so there won’t be unsightly cords to deal with either.

Leisure Gifts for Her
An easy-to-use painting set

Springtime Paint-by-Number Kit, available at Uncommon Goods, $35

Painting isn’t only for those who do art on the regular. This kit is a straightforward gift for any woman, regardless of experience level. Creating her work of art will take between three and five hours, but she’ll end up with a frame-worthy masterpiece.

A yoga mat for the fitness enthusiast

ProLite Yoga Mat, available at Manduka or Backcountry, from $99

For the one who doubles as a yogi, this mat has just the right amount of padding, is made of eco-friendly materials, and has a no-slip grip texture. It’s a top pick, even earning a spot as the best overall in our guide to the best yoga mats.

A year-long MasterClass membership to learn new things

Annual Membership, available at MasterClass, from $180/year

MasterClass, unlike many competitors, follows a format that feels like a one-sided conversation with your favorite icons rather than a traditional academic setting. It’s interesting, and you can go as deep (into reading materials) or shallow (listening to their insight while running errands) as you like to. An Unlimited Membership gives them access to all the site’s classes for the year.

The site hosts classes taught by well-known celebrities and industry leaders — from Neil deGrasse Tyson teaching Scientific Thinking and Communication to Malcolm Gladwell on Writing, Shonda Rhimes on Writing for Television, and Bob Iger on Business Strategy and Leadership.

It’s a gorgeous and thoughtful gift that she’ll love using when it’s time to travel again.

A cult-favorite candle

Diptyque Baies Candle, available at Bloomingdale’s, from $38
