Finding the perfect gift for a woman is a tricky proposition. Every woman is different, with different tastes and different interests. There’s no such thing as a single “best” gift that will appeal to all women. We’re here to help you find a “best of the best gift” for any important woman in your life, no matter what the occasion might be. This gift guide has helped an untold number of people find amazing gifts for women since it was initially published all the way back in 2015, and it’s always evolving. We constantly update this gift guide to have the latest and greatest gift ideas for any woman you need a gift for. Finding that perfect gift is often tough and stressful when you have to come up with ideas on your own. Thankfully, our list of time-tested favorites is here to help you zero in on a cool gift that will perfectly suit the woman you are shopping for.
Here’s how to start your hunt for a perfect gift. In addition to your budget and her interests, you also have to consider the occasion, as well as how long you have known this particular woman. The kind of gift you buy for your mother’s birthday is very different from the gift you’d pick out for your girlfriend of a few months, or your wife of 40 years. A lot of people feel overwhelmed when they have to purchase a gift for someone they care about. The right gift will show her that you care about her as a person, and understand what makes her tick, what makes her smile, and what truly matters most to her in this life.
There are some basic gift-giving rules to keep in mind, no matter the occasion. A birthday gift should feel personal, while an anniversary gift or “milestone birthday” should be a bit more lavish. If she’s turning 30, 40, 50, or older, a great gift will celebrate this exciting milestone. Gifts for female friends or co-workers can be lower in price, and a bit less personalized. Some women love jewelry, while other ladies are foodies who would much rather have a home-cooked meal than a gold necklace. There are gals who love the latest gadgets, and others who prefer knitting or handicrafts. With so many variables in play, finding that perfect gift can take a lot of time. Take some time to really think about your recipient. Consider their hobbies, their tastes, their interests, and reflect back on recent conversations with them to see if they were subtly trying to drop a hint about what kind of gift they’d like best.
To help you narrow your search, we’ve curated a list of the very best gifts for women. Our list includes jewelry, perfume, books, music, watches, movies, home goods, and more. We’ve even thrown in some truly unique items that will be perfect gifts for women who have everything. Every woman is different, but we’re confident that you’ll find a great gift idea on the list below that will suit any woman on your shopping list. There are great gifts under $10, as well as more lavish gifts that are perfect for the really important women in your life, such as moms and romantic partners.
Here is our ultimate guide to 101 of the best gifts for women of all ages. Whether you’re looking for a small token of your appreciation for an employee, a thoughtful gift for your mom, or a luxurious gift for a major anniversary with your sweetheart, we’re certain one of the unique gift ideas below will suit her perfectly.

93. Shun Sora 6-Piece Basic Block Knife Set
If you’ve ever tried to prepare a meal with an old, dull blade, you know how frustrating it can be to work with poor quality knives. This set of six knives from Shun is perfect for a woman who loves cooking, as well as any woman who desperately needs an upgrade for her kitchen knives. Shun knives are very high quality. They are made in Japan by master craftsmen, with mirror-polished Japanese 420J stainless steel blades on all the knives in the set. This block set includes the following items: a paring, knife, a utility knife, an eight-inch chef knife, a honing steel, and some useful herb shears. The block has 13 slots altogether, so there is room for her to store her existing knives, or her future Shun purchases. A really cool feature of all the knives in this collection is the handle. All the handles have a unique texture that actually makes the knives easier to hold with wet or damp hands. This makes these knives great for cutting through wet, messy ingredients, and prevents slippage or accidents in the kitchen. If this Shun knife set is a little expensive for your budget, consider getting her just a basic eight inch chef’s knife, which is a good size and shape for most average kitchen tasks.

108. Scratch the World Map
Looking for a cool gift for a recent high school grad, a jetsetter, or possibly an engagement gift for some newlyweds? This cool map of the world is covered with a “scratch off” layer, allowing the recipient to mark all the countries, states, and provinces in the world that they have visited. There are a lot of similar maps out there on the interwebs. We picked this particular map design for a couple of reasons. Firstly, we like that the map includes Antartica, which some maps of this ilk omit. This makes it great for your adventuresome friends who might someday make the trek to the most remote corner of the globe. Secondly, this map includes boundaries for all the US states and Canadian provinces, making it easier to scratch off only the parts of the US and Canada she has actually visited. To make your gift more thoughtful, consider including a perfectly-sized frame for her to display the map in.

Five drawers give her ample storage space for perfume, cosmetics, and other essentials.

This teapot holds enough water for two people, or one tea lover in serious need of caffeine. To make your gift even more special, consider pairing this teapot with some interesting tea.

This tool is how the pros at coffee shops and high end restaurants make their whip cream, meaning that this gift will definitely appeal to a foodie.
Note that you should only use standard 8-gram N2O cartridges with this gadget when making whipped cream. If you use a similarly sized CO2 cartridge, the cream will actually turn sour on you. Standard 8-gram N2O cartridges aren’t included with the purchase of the dispenser, so make sure to pick up a couple on Amazon. We recommend this value pack of 50 standard 8-gram N2O cartridges. That may seem like a lot of cartridges, but you’ll go through them pretty fast, and you pay much less per unit when you buy in bulk.
