9. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence
Sometimes, the perfect gift for a woman is something she would never buy for herself. This luxurious facial essence is beloved by celebrities, and will make the average woman feel like a star every time she puts it on. This famous skincare formula works across five dimensions of beauty to correct and improve skin: dark spots are less visible, the appearance of wrinkles is reduced, skin texture is more refined, firmness is improved, and skin becomes more radiant.
10. KONA French Press
A french press is a great gift for women who drink coffee or tea. This french press is a nice option because it is larger than the average press, making this perfect for those who need more than one cup to get through the morning. The curved design of the outer element makes this even more gift-worthy, since it’s somewhat unusual and eye-catching.
We recommend pairing this gift with some coffee, such as Joltin’ Joe (an American, bitter-not-bold coffee that is hand-roasted). If she prefers tea, we recommend the Tea Forte looseleaf tea trio, which includes fun flavors like Hazelnut Truffle, Sweet Orange Spice, and Bombay Chai.
