►Holiday gift guides 2022: The ultimate holiday gift guide for everyone in your life
1. For the girlfriend who loves designer handbags: Tory Burch Ella Patent Tote
The Ella Patent Tote Bag is one of Tory Burch's best-selling handbags for good reason: The stylish tote is casual enough for every day use, and spacious enough to use while traveling or for carrying a laptop. The recycled nylon material gives it durability while the patent trim gives it a touch of glamour for a night out, making it practical and versatile enough to use for just about any occasion.
2. For the girlfriend who loves to cook: The Always Pan
If your girlfriend loves spending time in the kitchen—(and making special homemade meals for you)—she needs this powerhouse piece of cookware. The Always Pan by Our Place is not only pretty to look at, but it can replace a bunch of those mismatched pots and pans she's been collecting since college including that old frying pan, cast iron skillet and steamer. Grab one now while they're on sale and save $37 off the regular price.
3. For the girlfriend who loves makeup: A gift set from Sephora
Sephora carries all the beauty gift sets she'll love. Gift her lavish lips with the Holiday Lip Set or spoil her with all the Makeup Must Haves. For a luxurious brand name at an affordable price, try the Hermés Mini Fragrance Discovery Set. As someone who is very particular about fragrances, I was impressed with every delightful scent in this set. Also, don't forget to stuff her stocking with a mini set of the oh-so-popular Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask.
4. For the wine-drinking girlfriend: Winc wine subscription
There are meal kits and there are beauty boxes—but what your wine-loving girlfriend really wants is a wine delivery service. After a long day, she'll look forward to coming home to a shipment of her favorite wines at her doorstep. We love Winc because it's personalized and the recommendations are on point. Plus, it doesn't hurt that the highly aesthetic bottles are totally insta-worthy.
5. For the casually chic girlfriend: Cariuma IBI sneakers
If your girlfriend prefers sneakers over heels, these casual low-top sneakers from Cariuma are perfect for her. Their IBI bamboo sneaker comes in tons of color options to match every outfit, making a perfect gift for the stylish one who also values comfort and quality. The brand even plants a tree for every pair of sneakers you buy, so you can feel good about every step you take in these.
6. For the girlfriend who loves to host: Anthropologie marble cheese board
She's a party planning goddess, loves arranging a charcuterie board and knows how to mix the perfect margarita, so feed her need for entertaining with this stunning cheese board. Crafted from marble and simply stunning, she'll be so excited to use it at her next party—(and brag to her friends it was from you!).
7. For the girlfriend who loves spontaneity: The Adventure Challenge Scrapbook
An adventurous girlfriend will be thrilled to open a gift that includes a series of activities the two of you can do together. The Adventure Challenge Scrapbook Couples Edition is a scrapbook that features 50 mystery scratch-off adventure ideas designed to create fun and romantic memories. You could be baking while blindfolded during one date, then painting a masterpiece the next! For even more date night excitement, check out the Adventurous Couples' Gift Set.
8. For the girlfriend who still has wired earbuds: Apple AirPods Pro (2nd gen)
If her wired earbuds are hanging by a thread, literally, then she'll love a pair of the new Apple AirPods Pro. The latest model is one of our favorite pair of wireless earbuds ever, and the best if you have an iPhone. They offer excellent audio quality, noise cancelling, connectivity, and much better battery life. If you want simple, no-nonsense earbuds that work for just about any use case, these are the ones to get.
9. For the tech-obsessed girlfriend: Apple Watch
Any type of person could use a smartwatch—but a girlfriend who loves the latest and greatest tech gadgets will especially enjoy the Apple Watch Series 8. Not only will she love how cool and stylish it looks, but it proved to be the best smartwatch we tested. Whether she's sending text messages, making a call, listening to music or checking the comments on that adorable new selfie of the two of you, this watch does it all, including a potentially life-saving crash detection feature.
10. For the girlfriend who thrives in athleisure wear: lululemon leggings
Leggings are a wardrobe must-have, and trust us, your girlfriend will never complain about receiving a new pair no matter how many she already has. We love lululemon's Align leggings because they are hands down the most comfortable leggings many of us have ever owned. For your girlfriend, gift her a complete outfit by adding a coordinating Align Tank Top.
11. For the girlfriend who would rather wear a robe all day: Parachute Bathrobe
Your girlfriend works hard, and perhaps plays hard, too, so she certainly deserves to relax in comfort during her down time. Parachute's Classic Turkish Cotton Robe is something she can wear over and over again, for years to come. Made out of 100 percent Turkish cotton, it's roomy and plush and one of the best robes we tested.
12. For the homebody girlfriend: Ugg Slippers
What goes great with a robe? A pair of slippers, of course. If she loves staying in and getting cozy, she'll definitely appreciate a nice pair of slippers. She'll lounge in ultimate comfort with a pair of plush slippers from Ugg—the brand famous for its super soft sherpa and great quality shoes. Some of the best-selling slipper options for women include the classic Scuffette and the trendy Fluff Yeah slide.
13. For the girlfriend who loves her smoothies: Beast Blender
The Beast is actually quite a beauty. This personal blender is not only aesthetically pleasing but it works like a charm. Its sturdy base, useful accessories and powerful motor make it one of our best personal blenders, and she'll love how it turns her favorite fruits and veggies into a delicious, silky smoothie she can take anywhere by simply screwing on the drinking lid to the blending vessel.
14. For the girlfriend who loves to travel: Away luggage
Whether she's visiting family for the holidays or planning the ultimate girls trip, she'll need luggage that will hold up to her jet-setting lifestyle. You've probably seen ads for Away on social media and it's popular for a reason. We tried it and found that it's as fashionable as it is functional and it holds up surprisingly well during travel.
15. For the girlfriend who loves drinking from a pretty glass: Lustered Wine Glasses
Nice bottles of wine deserve pretty glasses to drink them from—and your girlfriend knows this! These gorgeous Lustered Wine Glasses come in a set of four hand-blown wine glasses with an elegant iridescent finish and gold rim. When she's not sipping from them, she'll be putting them on display.
16. For the girlfriend you want to really impress: Kendra Scott diamond ring
When it comes to gifts for your girlfriend, you can't go wrong with jewelry. And more specifically, you can't go wrong with Kendra Scott jewelry. Women love the popular brand because their pieces are timeless, stylish and of high quality. If you're not ready to buy an engagement ring but still want to show your love with a beautiful diamond, she'll adore the Heart 14k Gold Band Ring—and don't forget a Diamond Dazzle Stik to keep that bling shining bright.
17. For the girlfriend who loves a slow-cooked meal: Staub cast iron Dutch oven
If she loves a cozy night in with a slow-cooked meal, the Staub cast iron Dutch oven is one of the best investments you can make when it comes to cookware. In our testing, the 5.5 quart, round cocotte came out on top for producing a deeply flavorful broth, evenly roasted chicken pieces and the tallest sourdough loaf of the bunch. You may have to do the dishes after your girlfriend makes an amazing meal, but thankfully the nonstick interior of this pot, which is available in a variety of colors, makes it easy.
18. For the organized girlfriend: Personalized Makeup Bag
Your organized girlfriend will love keeping her makeup neat and labeled in a chic Personalized Makeup Bag that can be customized with a name, an initial and a custom line of text. Choose from 11 earthy, matte color options with an elegant gold zipper.
19. For the girlfriend who loves lingerie: ThirdLove Lace Balconette Bra
Finding a bra that is pretty enough to show off to your partner, but comfortable to wear all day can sometimes feel impossible—but the Lace Balconette Bra might just be the answer. The bra is designed with functional details like memory foam cups and a scratch-free band, combined with a gorgeous floral lace. It's available in black or paprika and cup sizes A-I, so be sure to know her size.
20. For the girlfriend who loves scented candles: Anthropologie Capri Blue candle
If your girlfriend won't leave Anthropologie because the scent inside the store is simply intoxicating, it might be a good idea to gift her one of their signature Capri Blue candles. The iconic fresh and fruity Volcano scent is one of many delicious fragrances to choose from, and their long-lasting wick make it a gift that keeps on giving.
21. For the girlfriend who loves to read: Kindle Paperwhite
She loves to read—but she ran out of room on her bookshelves. The solution? An e-reader like the Paperwhite, which is our favorite of all the Amazon Kindles. It has a bright and crisp screen display and plenty of storage (she can load up on all the books on her must-read list!). Bonus: It's waterproof and can be used with Audible to listen to audiobooks, too.
22. For the girlfriend who loves getting glammed up: A makeup mirror
Help her perfect her date night glam with our best value makeup mirror, the DeWeisn Tri-fold Makeup Mirror. The touch sensor will allow her to control the lighting with a tap of her finger. It expands into a tri-fold with 1x, 2x, and 3x magnification options so she can make sure she's picture perfect.
23. For the girlfriend who loves iced coffee: Takeya Cold Brew Coffee Maker
She loves her iced coffee and you don't want to deal with her in the morning before she's had it, which means she'll love this Takeya Cold Brew Coffee Maker. We chose it as the best cold brew machine of the year because not only was it the easiest to use, but it also made the best-tasting coffee.
24. For the classic girlfriend: Everlane Cashmere Crew
You absolutely cannot go wrong with the luxurious gift of cashmere—and it doesn't get more classic than this Cashmere Crew from Everlane. This sweater is soft and warm, yet lightweight, with a relaxed fit for an effortless look. Choose from six timeless colors that will be worn for years to come.
25. For the girlfriend who just wants to relax: Gravity Weighted Blanket
If your girlfriend needs to take her stress level down a notch or two, she might benefit from a weighted blanket, which are renowned for relieving stress and anxiety and even for helping people fall asleep faster. At Reviewed, we're obsessed with the Gravity Blanket because it provides just the right amount of pressure (not too heavy, not too light) and the velvet fabric is incredibly soft and luxurious. Gravity now also offers a cooling weighted blanket for hot sleepers.
26. For the girlfriend who loves skincare: The best face moisturizer
If your girlfriend is a beauty buff who's serious about her skincare routine, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream is the best face moisturizer we tested. The cream-style moisturizer goes on thick, is easy to spread on skin, suitable for sensitive skin and delivers exactly what it promises: intense hydration. Your girlfriend (and her soft skin) will appreciate this skin-pampering gift that makes a great stocking stuffer, or grab the complete gift set to really impress her.
27. For the girlfriend who needs an assistant: Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd gen)
Hey Alexa, what's the best gift to give a busy girlfriend? Well yes, an Amazon Echo smart display, of course. The Echo Show 5 (second-gen) is basically a smaller, more affordable version of the full Show, with a compact design and a sleek, new screen—making it easy to see timers, get news updates, and make video calls.
28. For the low-maintenance girlfriend: Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer
If she's a low-maintenance girlfriend who doesn't want or have time to spend hours on her hair, she'll appreciate this cult-favorite hair tool that will help her achieve a silky, salon-worthy blowout in a fraction of the time: The Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer. Our beauty editor put it to the test and said it straightened her curly hair in just 30 minutes! I am also a huge fan of this hair tool for how it adds volume and shine to my otherwise flat hair.
29. For the girlfriend who loves getting flowers: The Bouqs Co.
A beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers is sure to brighten your girlfriend's day—and ordering from a flower delivery service like The Bouqs Co. makes it simple for you. Not only are there plenty of gorgeous blooms to choose from (including wildflowers, roses and lilies), but you can even gift her a monthly subscription for a gift that truly keeps on giving.
30. For the girlfriend who loves jamming: JBL Flip 6
Whether she's having a solo dance party in the living room or hitting the pool with her friends, she'll love having one of our favorite portable speakers, the JBL Flip 6, on hand. We loved its waterproof build, excellent 12-hour battery life and superior room-filling audio. There's even a range of fun colors available so you can pick one that suits her style.
31. For the gardening girlfriend: A customizable harvest basket
Does your girlfriend love spending time in her garden? If so, this is a gift she's sure to use and love to pick the perfect produce season after season. The Gardener's Harvest Basket from Uncommon Goods is a traditional garden basket made from pine wood, hardwood and wire, and can be customized with her name. She'll thank you for picking this perfect present.
32. For the girlfriend who needs a massage: Theragun
If she's always asking you to massage her sore muscles, then do yourself a favor and get her a Theragun, which is backed by thousands of happy shoppers. One of our staff members put the handheld massager to the test and liked that it was powerful (perfect for kneading out knots) and could get to even the hardest-to-reach spots.
33. For the gamer girlfriend: Oculus Quest 2
Sometimes she just needs an escape from it all, and the Meta Quest 2 can deliver. This VR headset is our favorite VR gaming headset and comes with speedy processors, easy set-up and extremely reactive features to keep your giftee wholly immersed.
34. For the girlfriend who wants rosé all day: Corkcicle Wine Tumbler
Wine glasses are great. Wine glasses you can take on the go are even better—especially for your wine-loving girlfriend. These stylish stemless ones from the beloved water bottle brand Corkcicle are highly rated for being durable (they're made of thick stainless steel) and for keeping drinks—like her favorite chilled rosé—cold for hours. Bonus: It's heat-resistant, too, so she can also use it as a coffee cup in the mornings.
35. For the girlfriend who likes to sleep in: Alaska Bear Silk Pillowcase
The gift of a good night's sleep is priceless, and so is waking up without creases on your face or a major case of bed head. Pamper your girlfriend with the gift of beauty rest with an Alaska Bear Silk Pillowcase. Made from pure Mulberry silk, this was our favorite silk pillowcase for its affordable price, 42 color options and convenient zipper closure
36. For the plant lady girlfriend: The Sill
If your girlfriend has a green thumb (or even if she hasn't quite perfected that skill), this is still a good gift for anyone who loves a little greenery. While you could give her a single pot, a subscription to The Sill will help her enjoy her greenery year-round. One of our editors tried the popular plant delivery service and says her plant of choice arrived in great condition, and it's still happily thriving.
37. For the stylish girlfriend: Spanx Faux Leather Leggings
Spanx Faux Leather Leggings are chic, comfortable and quite possibly best of all, offer tummy control. We applaud Spanx for their wide variety of sizing options running from XS to 3X and also available in short sizes for petite bodies. They are versatile enough to be worn to the office with a long tunic or styled edgier for a night out, so your girlfriend will be comfortable wearing them from the office to the nightclub.
38. For the sentimental girlfriend: Artifact Uprising Photo Book
If your girlfriend is the sentimental type, skip the gift cards and make a custom photo album instead. At Artifact Uprising, you can choose from a variety of beautiful styles from hand-stamped, embossed hardcover books to the signature lay flat album. The high-quality pages are thick, and the drag-and-drop layouts and designs make the whole process super simple.
39. For the active girlfriend: Fitbit Charge 5
We could all use some extra motivation to get out of our seats and go for a walk, and the Fitbit Charge 5 will do just that. It can encourage your girlfriend with daily goals, hourly step challenges, and tons of data to look back at. It's our favorite fitness tracker, and it makes a great gift for anyone who is obsessed with crushing new fitness goals.
40. For the girlfriend with a sweet tooth: Baked by Melissa cupcakes
For the girlfriend who considers dessert a food group, satisfy her craving for all things sweet with a box of mini cupcakes that ship nationwide from Baked By Melissa. The best-selling Latest & Greatest sampler pack comes with a mix of deliciously classic and unique flavors like tie-dye, caramel cone, birthday cake and triple chocolate fudge. Gluten-free, nut-free and vegan options are also available to fit any dietary needs. We love them, and if your girlfriend can't live without her sugar fix, she'll love them too.
41. For the girlfriend who's always taking pictures: Instax Mini
Whether it's yet another selfie of the two of you or your pet, if your girlfriend loves snapping pictures, an instant camera like this Fujifilm Instax Mini is a fun alternative to her smartphone camera. Our favorite is the Mini 90 because it has the most features of all the Instax cameras (from a super-fast shutter speed to a macro mode for capturing close-ups) and includes a rechargeable battery.
