If you’re ready to start shopping for a Christmas gift for an important woman in your life, our gift guide is just what you need. Our guide to the best gifts for women includes cool gifts across a variety of price points. Whether you’re shopping for your mom, sister, best friend, or significant other, there’s something on this list that will resonate with you.
1. ‘Downton Abbey’ Edwardian Pave Crystal Accent Drop Earrings
These earrings are perfect for Downton Abbey fans, or for any woman who loves jewelry with a vintage touch.

2. Lark & Ro Women’s 100% Cashmere Drapey Cardigan
Shopping for a woman can be difficult, especially if you aren’t certain what size she wears. This drapey cardigan is a smart choice for anyone who isn’t 100 percent certain what size to buy since the generous cut and open front design give you a little wiggle room in the event that you bought a size too small. The cardigan is made from 100 percent cashmere, making it a luxurious holiday gift.
Price: $89.99 (49 percent off MSRP)

4. Mio Your Fit Skin Kit
Luxury skin care gift sets are always a great holiday gift idea. Lots of beauty products are designed to help the skin on your face retain its youthful glow, but there are far fewer products that can do the same for the skin on the rest of your body. These three products are great for torso, arms, legs, or décolleté.
