When it comes to any kind of gift-giving, I tend to lean towards the practical end of the spectrum. The ultimate compliment would be to hear a recipient say, “Wow, that is going to be so useful!” As much as I like to wrap up a physical object, I’m also very happy to give gift cards too!

As someone who enjoys feminine things, creating this gift guide for “her” was the most fun of the bunch. I thought about my sister, my mom, and my friends as I scrolled through my favorite retailers and really tried to think about actual gifts I would give my loved ones.

My rule of thumb is to try to pair a practical item with something a little bit more fun. So if I’m giving a travel case for my sister pack her cosmetics in for future trips, I’d also slip a lip balm or gift card to Starbucks in there as well. Mixing and matching items together makes a gift feel really personal and special.

If you buy a jewelry box as a gift, consider adding a delicate pair of earrings to it before you wrap it up!

Lastly, if you are really stumped on what to give someone, I don’t think you can go wrong with a food gift paired with a beautiful soap set. That may not sound super glamorous (frankly, it isn’t) but it’s something that the recipient will certainly use and appreciate!

This is such a great gift guide! I just bought the marble tray from West Elm for my sister in law (and it’s on sale!)
