Best Christmas Gifts for Young Women

July 11, 2022 11 min read

It's difficult to come up with Christmas gift ideas for young women who appear to have everything. If she's difficult to buy, a one-of-a-kind, thoughtful, and personal gift that she'll use is the way to go. To get you started, we've compiled a list of the Christmas gifts for young women. Or whether you're looking for a unique gift for her birthday, Christmas day, or just because, these ideas will not disappoint. We have options for the aspiring home cook, the person in desperate need of a spa day, and even the person who is constantly losing track of their keys.

1. Mark & Graham Small Travel Jewelry Case

If she wears jewelry frequently and you don't want to risk getting her something similar to something she already has, give her this Mark & Graham travel case. There are compartments for rings, earrings, and necklaces, so she can keep all her jewelry safe whether she's at home or on the go. It's made of vegan leather, available in 20 different colors, and can be personalized with up to three characters for an additional fee.

2. Bombas Gripper Slippers

If she's always walking around the house in socks, she'll adore Bombas' patterned slipper-sock hybrids. They have the comfort and fit of ultra-cozy socks, as well as bottom grips to prevent slipping, are machine-washable, and come in a variety of fun patterns.

3. Olive + June Bestsellers Set

If she's always painting her nails, you can update her collection with 10 of Olive + June's most popular shades, as well as a gleaming top coat to finish it off. She'll be able to find a color that works for any occasion with colors ranging from cherry-red to creamy taupe.

4. Kindle

If she enjoys reading and does not already have a Kindle, this is one of the best gifts you can give her. The Kindle is small and light, making it ideal for on-the-go reading while traveling or commuting. This newer model has a glare-free display, adjustable brightness, and long battery life, allowing her to read whatever she wants whenever she wants.

5. Mosser Glass Cake Stand

Enhance her baking skills (literally) with a handmade glass cake stand in one of seven beautiful colors. A glass dome can also be added to prevent others from sneaking a taste ahead of time.

6. Polaroid Now+ i-Type Instant Camera

Polaroid's latest instant camera allows photographers to be extremely creative with their images by using colored lens filters or the Polaroid app. The app includes numerous extra features such as light painting, double exposure, and even remote use (so everyone can get in the shot).

7. Brooklyn Candle Studio Candle of the Month Club Subscription

If she's the type of person who always has a candle burning at home, a subscription to Brooklyn Candle Studio is a great gift idea. You can have a new box delivered to her for everyone, two, or three months, and each one includes a seasonal candle and a set of long matches.

8. Bose Noise Canceling Headphones

They're a bit pricey, but if the recipient works in an open-plan office (or at home with the rest of the family), these headphones will come in handy. She can turn the noise cancellation up to 11 to completely drown out the din around her, or down to zero if she still needs to be aware of her surroundings. In either case, she'll be able to listen to her favorite music, podcast, or audiobook uninterrupted. With a battery life of up to 20 hours per charge, these headphones will easily last through her workday, workout, and beyond.

9. Nordstrom Cashmere Rib Scarf

Because cashmere is known for being a luxuriously soft fabric, it is usually quite pricey. Get her this cashmere rib scarf from Nordstrom for a less expensive (but equally cozy) alternative. She may end up wearing this scarf more than a cashmere sweater because it won't need to be dry cleaned as frequently.

10. Be Rooted Face the Day Note Taking Bundle

We've all met someone obsessed with making lists. If that's who you're looking for, this set of notepads and pens is a no-brainer. Each notepad has beautiful artwork on the back and can be used to jot down phone call notes, to-do lists for the day, and other important reminders.

11. Goldbelly Monthly Subscription

Goldbelly delivers delectable treats from the best restaurants across the country, whether you prefer lobster from Maine, wings from Buffalo, or pecan pie from the South. The Goldbely team curates this best-of subscription every month, but you can also sign her up for a subscription from a specific city (including Chicago, New York City, and Miami) or a favorite food type (like BBQ, cookies, or pizza).

12. Oak + Fort Tote Bag

This inexpensive tote is available in nine different colors (including neutrals and fun hues like light blue and sage) and is ideal for both commuting to work and running errands. It's large enough to carry everything they need, and there are two large pockets on the outside for things they need close at hand, like their phone and keys.

13. Cocokind Body Duo

She can pamper herself at home with this Cocokind body care set—no spa visits required. The body scrub and lotion combo exfoliates dead skin, smoothes away dry patches, and hydrates all over with ingredients like upcycled coffee grounds and sake extract.

14. Art of Tea Eco Tea Bag Sachet Sampler Box

She'll be able to try out a variety of Art of Tea blends with this sampler pack of 12 teabags. Classics like chamomile and green tea are available, as are more unusual options like creamy coconut and Happy Tea (light and fruity blend).

15. Outdoor Voices The Workout Clothes

That athleisure-obsessed friend will most likely be obsessed with this Outdoor Voices sporty dress. The Exercise Dress has built-in biker shorts (with pockets!) and adjustable straps, so she can go from the gym to brunch with ease. And, with 18 different colors and patterns to choose from, there's bound to be something that matches her style.

16. Volo Hero Microfiber Hair Towel

Does she have long, thick hair that takes an eternity to dry? Then this gift suggestion will make her life a lot easier. This microfiber hair towel is plush yet absorbent, reducing drying time and frizz. It's oversized enough to fit all hair types, and she can tuck excess fabric into the back strap to keep it in place.

17. BloomsyBox Subscription

Fresh flowers are one of the best ways to instantly brighten someone's day, and a BloomsyBox subscription ensures she gets that feeling every month. Each bouquet is pre-assembled and includes free next-day delivery, which is hard to beat.

18. Modern Sprout Unwind Lavender Gift Set

This lavender-themed self-care box is an excellent gift idea for someone in your life who could use some R&R. She can grow lavender in a self-watering pot at home, but in the meantime, she can enjoy the aromatherapy benefits of the soy-blend candle, pillow spray, and sleep mask.

19. Estelle Colored Glass Stemmed Wine Glasses (Set of 6)

These hand blown wine glasses come in a variety of eye-catching jewel tones that will significantly elevate her dinner parties and wine nights at home. We also like the brand's backstory: the founder was inspired by her grandmother Estelle's collection of antique colored glassware, so she began creating her pieces.

20. Mejuri Beaded Huggie Hoops

These huggie hoops are versatile (and comfortable) enough to become her new go-to earrings for everyday wear. The hoops have a subtle yet stylish beaded design and are available in 14k white gold and yellow gold.

21. Cuyana Classic Zip Around Wallet

If her wallet needs an upgrade, consider this zippered leather option from Cuyana. This wallet has a classic design that will never go out of style, and it's large enough to hold all of her credit cards, cash, coins, loyalty cards, and other items.

22. Anthropologie Faux Fur Throw Blanket Sophie

A cozy blanket, such as this one from Anthropologie, is a timeless gift. Whether she's always cold or enjoys cuddling up on the couch, this plush throw will keep her warm at all times. It also comes in a variety of colors that aren't typically found in faux fur blankets, such as ochre, teal, mauve, and others.

23. Material The Angled Board

Material's wood cutting board can do it all, whether she enjoys making charcuterie boards or is constantly chopping ingredients in the kitchen. It's double-sided, with one smooth side for serving and one grooved side for catching juices while she preps.

24. Josh Owen Match Striker

This cast iron match holder and the striker is a one-of-a-kind gift ideal for the person who always has candles lit at home. She can light a match anywhere on the surface (strike-anywhere matches are required, which are sold separately) and store used matches in the dish while they cool.

25. Calpak Amber Vanity Case

Your travel-loving friend will appreciate this hard-shelled makeup organizer, which will hold all of her beauty products and more. It's almost like a mini suitcase with zippered mesh dividers on each side, but it also comes with an adjustable shoulder strap and a trolley sleeve for even more carrying options.

26. Doogee EFI Bassi Market Tote 

This everyday cotton tote bag comes in five striped color combinations and has thoughtful features like a key holder and interior and exterior pockets. She'll also appreciate the fact that it's ethically made by refugees in Italy.

27. East Fork The Mug

Give her this East Fork handmade clay mug, and she can finally say goodbye to the random mugs she's accumulated over the years. It's dishwasher-safe, comes in six minimalist colors (including two seasonal glazes), holds up to 12 ounces, and we're sure she'll want to use it for her morning coffee and afternoon tea.

28. Rifle Paper Co. Personalized Flat Notes

These personalized note cards with envelopes are a great gift idea for the woman who collects stationery. Select one of six floral borders and personalize the set with her full name (and optional return address for an extra fee). Plus, she'll remember you every time she writes a thank-you note or sends a postcard.

29. Eu'Genia Shea Butter Gift Set

She'll want to keep these mini shea butter tins on hand for when her skin requires some TLC. The set includes four tins (lavender, grapefruit, fragrance-free, and 100 percent shea) that she can use to hydrate her skin. Furthermore, the small tins are ideal for storing in her purse, on the bathroom counter, or in the car.

30. Everlane The Renew Anorak

This recycled-materials anorak is a great transitional piece that she can wear in the mornings and evenings when she needs a light jacket. It even has a water-resistant finish to keep her dry in case of unexpected rain. It also has fashionable details like a high-low hem, a color block design, and a hidden drawstring for a cinched silhouette that set it apart from other rain jackets.

31. Courant Catch:2 Essentials Wireless Charger

This stylish wireless charger is wrapped in Belgian linen and can charge up to two devices simultaneously, including her phone and AirPods. It's an excellent gift idea for someone whose phone is constantly on low battery. Just make sure her device supports Qi-compatible wireless charging (a list is available on the brand's website).

32. Hedley & Bennett The Essential Apron

This popular apron makes an excellent gift for the home cook in your life. Whatever her skill level, she'll find the features on this apron useful in the kitchen. It has pockets for her phone and cooking utensils, long waist straps that she can tie on either side and fun color and pattern.

33. Golde Make Your Matcha Kit

With this DIY matcha latte kit, she can turn her pricey matcha habit into an at-home ritual. It includes a tin of pure matcha (enough for 15-20 servings) and a bamboo whisk, so all she needs to add is her preferred milk for a hot or iced latte.

Even if she doesn't have a green thumb, this miniature heart-shaped succulent will thrive on her windowsill. The Hoya Heart is easy to care for and stays small, so she won't have to worry about repotting it into something larger later on—and the variety of planter options makes it simple to find one that matches her aesthetic.

36. The Citizenry Aegean Cotton Bath Robe

This luxurious bathrobe is made with organic Turkish cotton and lightweight linen and is the ideal gift for anyone who wants to feel like they're in a hotel when they get out of the shower. What more could you want? It's soft, absorbent, and has pockets.

37. Great Jones Hot Dish

This casserole dish is a stunning piece of bakeware that they will want to bring to holiday gatherings for years to come. It comes in five vibrant colors, has a vintage-inspired design, and is dishwasher-safe for easy cleanup.

38. Slip Silk Sleep Mask

A luxurious silk sleep mask will ensure she doesn't lose any sleep due to bright lights. Furthermore, the silk fabric is gentle on the eye area and less likely to absorb skincare products (so those expensive serums stay on her face).

39. Tile Pro 2-Pack

Is she constantly misplacing her phone, keys, or wallet? Then Tile's Bluetooth trackers will come in handy. She can use the app to make the tracker ring when it's within 400 feet of her location, and even if it's out of range, she can still see its most recent location. If the situation is reversed and she has misplaced her phone, she can use the Tile tracker to make her phone ring—even if it is in silent mode.

40. Brightland The Duo

She most likely already has olive oil in her pantry, but a high-quality version can make all the difference in how her food turns out. Brightland's set includes two bottles of extra-virgin olive oil: one bold, robust, and ideal for roasting and sautéing, and another smooth, grassy, and transformative for salads and hummus.

41. Coyuchi Dillon Organic French Terry Cardigan

It's impossible to go wrong with comfortable loungewear. This French terry cardigan is ideal for days when she doesn't want to put on PJs or a robe but still wants to feel cozy. It's made of organic cotton and is Fair Trade Certified, and it has pockets for stashing lip balm or keeping her hands warm.

42. Eberjey Gisele Short Sleeve & Pant PJ Set

Eberjey's comfy pajamas, known for their super-soft modal fabric, will help her feel put together—even if she just woke up and hasn't even gotten ready for the day. The short-sleeve top and pants come in five classic colors and feature contrast piping and buttons.

43. Gorjana Power Birthstone Coin Necklace

Birthstone jewelry is always a meaningful gift, no matter what the occasion. Gorjana's coin necklace is made of 18k gold-plated brass and features one of 12 different types of gemstones based on her birth month.

44. Bean Box Coffee + Chocolate Tasting Box

Coffee and chocolate are both excellent gifts on their own, but you can outdo yourself by getting her this tasting box that combines the best of both worlds. It includes four bags of freshly roasted coffee (grounds or whole beans) and four artisan chocolate bars in flavors such as Orange Blossom Espresso. She'll also get tasting notes for each of the pairings, allowing her to pretend she's a coffee and chocolate expert.

45. Papier Colorblock Notebook

This customizable notebook from Paper is a great gift idea whether she has just started a new job or is trying to get into bullet journaling. It can be customized in a variety of ways, including the colors, cover (soft or hard), and paper type (lined, dotted, or plain). You can even customize it with her full name, initials, or an inspirational quote.

46. Massage gun

This mini massage gun is a thoughtful gift for any fitness enthusiast. It's small enough to fit in her gym bag, but its three settings are powerful enough to relieve sore muscles and speed recovery after even the most strenuous workouts.

47. Girlfriend Collective Recycled Half-Zip Fleece

Give her a fleece pullover to keep her warm and cozy if she's always cold. This one from Girlfriend Collective is so plush on both sides that you'd never guess it's made out of recycled water bottles. It has a slightly cropped and boxy fit and is available in sizes XXS to 6XL.

48. Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag Extended Strap

This belt bag allows her to carry everything she needs while out and about, whether she's going to a workout class or the grocery store. The bag can be worn across the body or around the waist and holds her phone, wallet, keys, and other essentials.
