For the always-on-the-go woman in your life, gift her something that's as versatile as she is: Calpak's Luka Duffel is a lightweight bag that can be used for the office, gym or traveling. While testing this duffel, I found it to be the perfect size for an overnight trip or carry-on bag, and with nine pockets, there's a place to stash all of your essentials. My favorite feature is the shoe pocket, so stinky shoes are kept separate from your fresh outfit of the day.
28. For the one with healthy habits: Fitbit Charge 5

32. For the one who loves sandals: Birkenstock Arizona Soft Footbed Sandal
Birkenstocks have made an epic comeback and they are now a footwear staple. I own two pair and they are so comfortable that I wear them almost every day, all year-round, even for neighborhood walks. I recommend the Birkenstock Yao Slide, as well as the less expensive Essentials Arizona waterproof slides, perfect for pool days and rainy days.

The bag comes in a few different colors, but English Saddle is a classic choice that will never go out of style.
37. For the one who loves curls: GHD Curve Wand
The one who needs a little help in the hairstyling department would love the GHD Curve Creative Curl Wand. When we tested curling irons, it came out on top as our favorite.

38. For the cook in a hurry: Ninja Speedi Rapid Cooker & Air Fryer

Go ahead and spoil her with a Tory Burch handbag, she deserves it! The Kira Quilted Square Crossbody purse is perfect for a date night or to show off to her girlfriends.

An Apple Watch would be a fantastic gift for the one who is always on their iPhone.

Give the gift of our favorite smartwatch so they can have all of their notifications, music and texts at their fingertips all the time.
47. For the one who enjoys a slow cooked meal: Staub Dutch Oven
A great Dutch oven is a kitchen staple and our favorite overall was this Staub Cast Iron 5.5 Quart Round Cocotte which was great at both braising meat and simmering stews. These Dutch ovens are literally hot, so get one for the person in your life who loves cooking.

A pressure cooker is the multi-cooker she needs in her life. The Ninja Foodi OL701 is the best one we tested and features 14 cooking functions including slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker and more.

If you're looking to splurge on a fitness buff, The MYX II by Myxfitness is truly an amazing gift for someone who loves spinning. We tested exercise bikes and found this model to be the best value pick. This bike comes with a Polar heart rate monitor visible on the screen that lets you hit three exertion zones. Unlike Peloton, the goal isn't RPMs (revolutions per minute of the flywheel), it's adjusting resistance so you hit your targeted heart rate. The display can also swivel, so they can take non-spinning classes like HIIT and barre too, which are all available on demand.
