Top Picks in Gifts for Girlfriends

FP Movement

For the Neighborhood Stroller

Why We Love It: Folds into its own pouch, 17 colors

She’ll appreciate you wanting her to stay warm when you go for walks together. This lightweight-yet-warm puffer has a distinctive curved hem and slightly cropped fit, both of which make it way more flattering than standard puffer jackets.

gifts for girlfriends magnesium powder

For the New Mom

Why We Love It: Pregnancy- and breastfeeding-safe, relaxing

This raspberry-flavored drink mix has magnesium, calcium, and vitamin D3 to support relaxation, calcium absorption, and bone health—plus it really relaxes even the most anxious parent, without conking them out like sleep meds can.

gifts for girlfriends essentials skincare
Oak Essentials

For the Frequent Flyer

Why We Love It: No synthetic ingredients, travel-sized

This line of skincare from designer and lifestyle influencer Jenni Kayne includes a cleanser, mask, balancing mist, restorative face oil and moisturizing balm. It’s the minimalist traveler’s go-to for rehydrating fatigued skin, sized small enough to pop into a carryon.

gifts for girlfriends natural wine

For the Wine Drinker

Why We Love It: Additive-free wines, educational

This selection of four natural wines comes courtesy of this woman-run online wine cellar that has clear explanations of all its wines (i.e. no oenophile jargon) and takes as its mission education about natural wines, the additive-free vintages that are one of the fastest-growing market categories. This starter kit comes with an orange, red, a pet nat (the wine industry term taken from the French words "pétillant naturel” or "naturally sparkling") and a surprise wine.

gifts for girlfriends hiking shoe

For the Hiker

Why We Love It: Wide, comfy sole, waterproof

Stylish-looking and designed for high, performance, this shoe has a gusseted tongue to keep out trail debris and a liner made of 50 percent soybean oil. And the pull tab cradles your Achilles tendon, so putting this shoe on is no great effort.

gifts for girlfriends probiotic regimen
My Girl Wellness

7. My Girl Wellness Gut Goals

My Girl Wellness

For the Nutrition-Minded

Why We Love It: Immune boosting, 5 billion CFU dosage

Studies show that probiotic supplements help people suffering from IBS with lessening symptoms of bloating, diarrhea, constipation and stomach discomfort, as well as assisting in the everyday absorption of nutrients (not a given in today’s fast-paced world of grabbing whatever to eat while on the go). We love that this brand of data-backed supplements has a cute little travel pouch that can hold the tablets so won’t have to lug around the whole bottle. 

gifts for girlfriends heated back massager

For the Stress Case

Why We Love It: Heated vibration, portable

This massager plugs into your car or a wall outlet to give you a powerful massage. Inside the pillow (which is great to lie back on the floor on), there are 12 rounded heating units that rotate and radiate warmth upward and outward. And for long commutes, popping this baby between your lower back and the driver’s seat? Priceless.

gifts for girlfriends vinyl
Urban Outfitters

Green Chef

For the Paleo Eater

Why We Love It: Keto, Paleo and other specialty meals, 30 weekly options

Pre-measured and prepped ingredients come ready to cook and include recipes she’ll love but would never have time to source (think Cuban chicken with chimichurri, smoky cilantro-lime barramundi). Best of all, she can really drill down into whatever dietary focus she’s into, including gluten-free and vegan.

gifts for girlfriends lululemon zip top

gifts for girlfriends wide leg pants

12.   Cuyana Wide-Leg Pants


For the Comfort Dresser

Why We Love It: Washable silk, drawstring elastic waist

These trousers are as comfortable (and easy to launder) as jammies but look so glam due to their matte silk fabrication and generous pant leg size. They sit at your natural waist with a 30.5-inch inseam, just the right length for most wearers to wear with flats as well as platform-soled shoes.

Size range: XS to XL

For the Forgetful

Why We Love It: Affection-inducing, establishes tradition

Each of the ten days leading up to your anniversary, one of the two of you pulls a token from a drawstring pouch, then follows the prompt. One day it might be tender (“Give each other the biggest hug ever”) or thoughtful (“I will bring you our favorite sweet treat to share”), and after you complete it, you put the token into the custom-engraved board.

For the Bath Lover

Why We Love It: Skin softening mojo, no harmful exfoliants

Made by a Malibu-born woman with an NYU degree in alternative medicine, this scrub uses brown sugar and natural oils to naturally soften skin. Not only is this a skin-soothing pre-bath self-massage opportunity, but her skin won’t need lotion after the bath since it is left with a silky feel.

For the Playfully Sexy

Why We Love It: 8 vibration modes, customizable clamp tips

Does she (or you both) enjoy nipple play? Take that tweaking to the next level with this set of silicone nipple clamps that rumble in various intensities when clamped on. It operates by remote and has two additional clamp sizes for optimal fit—and one clamp has friction points on the clamp interiors to intensify sensation.

gifts for girlfriends sweater

For the Cashmere Lover

Why We Love It: 94 percent recycled cashmere, relaxed fit

The deep V-neck and slightly boxy design mean this is a layering staple, and the Italian-spun yarn uses 90 percent less emissions in its manufacture.

24.   Dyson Groom Tool


For the Dog Lover

Why We Love It: Captures loose hair, allergen removal

If she’s constantly noticing how much shedding is happening with the canines, here’s an innovative way to eliminate it while bonding with the pooch. This vacuum attachment, which fits onto most Dyson machines, lets users brush their pet, then flick a thumb control and have the hairs sucked away. The 364 bristles on the brush are slightly angled and flex as you work your way through the dog’s coat. Yes, you’re vacuuming your dog!

For the Glam Sleeper

Why We Love It: Keeps hair and face from tugging on fabric, 9 colorways

Estheticians and trichologists know what’s what—you need to protect your facial skin and hair from the unnecessary friction caused by rubbing against any fabric that’s not hypoallergenic or designed to help slip across the skin. Voila—a silk pillowcase to the rescue (plus it just feels so gosh darn fancy).

Why We Love It: Natural sleep aid, topical application

Before-bed topical magnesium is all the rage among the PureWow staff, and we bet any sleep-deprived girlfriend will appreciate the relaxation it promotes. Additionally, this formula contains anti-inflammatory arnica, so it does double duty as a lightly lavender-scented muscle rub.

gifts for girlfriends calpak

For the Light Packer

Why We Love It: Fits underneath plane seat, durable

This little wonder comes in six appealing colors and is sized to fit under most airline seats, so she'll never have to struggle with heavy overhead compartments ever again.

This 5.1- by 2.5-inch mini iron is not only great for travel but also a boon for home use, since it functions as a steamer and flat iron that doesn’t need an ironing board. And the handle rotates 180 degrees so you can really get into those tiny wrinkles on collars and cuffs.
