Your girlfriend deserves a thoughtful, lifestyle-appropriate gift for her special day, Valentine’s Day, or solely. From a cozy wool throw blanket for the homebody to luxury-colored glassware for the host to a mini portable speaker for the audiophile, we have gifts for all companions.
Whether it’s a fashionable accessory she can wear every day or useful technology she didn’t know she needed, regardless of your budget or the occasion, these are the best gifts that say, “You’re the best girlfriend.”
Cute things to send to your girlfriend at work
Here are the options of the cute things to send to your girlfriend at work:
a) A weighted throw blanket for better rest
Weighted blankets can promote relaxation and better sleep, and Bearaby’s Cotton Napper is stylish enough for any settee or bed. It’s one of the finest weighted blankets we’ve tested, with various colors and weights to suit her and her home, and it’s machine washable. At $200–$300, depending on weight, it is one of the more expensive gifts in this guide; for a more affordable option, we recommend the Luna Weighted Blanket, which is typically less than $100 and occasionally goes on sale for less than $50.
b) Colored glassware for a luxurious cocktail party
These rocks glasses are made by Estelle Colored Glass, a Black-owned home décor brand that specializes in luxury hand-blown glassware. This six-piece set is ideal for the host who wants her drinkware to be as impressive as the beverages. It combines classic silhouettes with contemporary hues. If bubbly is more to her taste, we also adore the Champagne Coupe Stemware from Estelle Colored Glass.
c) The plushest reversible throw blanket
One of our favorite scatter blankets is UGG’s Bliss Sherpa scatter, which has a wool-like feel on one side and a smoother microfleece on the other. It is ideal for lounging in front of the television and is spacious enough for two when date night is a movie session at home.
d) A textured foam roller to massage out any knot
Whether your girlfriend’s muscles are tired from intense workouts or constantly being on her feet, a foam roller is an excellent gift for facilitating muscle recovery. The TriggerPoint Gear Foam Rolling is one of the more valuable rollers we’ve tested due to its compact size, waterproof material, packable dimensions, and affordable price. However, if you’re prepared to spend more than $100, we’ve also recommended more intense options, including vibration rollers.
e) An effective styling tool for any hair type
Our Style & Beauty staff recommend the Shark FlexStyle as the closest multi-styling tool to the Dyson Airwrap. It is still more of an investment at half the price of the Airwrap, but it is well worth it for a companion who wants to improve her at-home hairstyling.
f) A snapshot camera that also supports Bluetooth
Give the photo-obsessed girlfriend a choice between using the camera or connecting her phone and publishing directly from her camera roll. The Polaroid Now+ includes five inventive lens filters that expand artistic options.
g) A belt bag fit for festivals, the mountains, and more.
Whether she’s searching for a bag that can withstand some rough use or striving for a trendy dressed-down look, Patagonia’s hip pack can meet her needs. It is one of our favorite belt purses, made from recycled material and available in various colors, with an adjustable strap to accommodate multiple body types and carrying styles.
h) A Bluetooth speaker that fits in her purse
The JBL Go 3 Portable Speaker will appeal to her if she dislikes sacrificing space or sound quality. The Bluetooth speaker is available in various colors, is waterproof, has a length of 3.4 inches on its longest side, and has an opening for simple attachment to a bag or belt. Typically, it costs around $50, but during purchasing holidays, we’ve seen discounts as high as 50% off.
i) An affordable luxury watch
Breda produces luxury watches typically priced just below or slightly above $200, and we adore how they look for the price. This model features a stainless steel band and 18K gold-plated casing.
j) A dainty nameplate necklace
Nameplate necklaces are perennially fashionable, so this piece is destined to become a wardrobe staple. You can choose the name, alias, or even her favorite place.
k) A card game to deepen personal connections
This card game, created by the popular Instagram account We’re Not Strangers, is intended to strengthen connections between individuals with varying perceptions, contact levels, and reflection levels. In addition to being a card game you’ve never played, it’s a thoughtful activity you and your girlfriend can appreciate together.
l) A cookbook for movie night dinners
Dinner and a movie: a timeless combination. Inspire future date evenings with the “Eat What You Watch Cookbook.” It contains 41 as-seen-on-screen recipes, such as hazelnut sorbet from “Roman Holiday” and double-decker New York-style pizza from “Saturday Night Fever,” which can prepare for movie night.
m) A large print of a favorite memory
Artifact Uprising produces luxury prints at affordable prices, and they make exceptionally thoughtful presents that appear to be much more expensive. Get one of their favorite photographs printed on archival fine art paper for $20 or more, or purchase considerate greeting cards for as low as $1.45 each. You can also create a color collection photo book for $22, a set of images for $9, and a personalized wooden clipboard calendar for $30.
n) A pass to get into a bunch of boutique fitness classes
Expensive boutique fitness classes can make attempting new workouts — for variety or to determine our preferences — less appealing.
ClassPass addresses both problems. It is reasonably priced, and members can access an endless catalog of exercises with small class sizes. If your companion is returning to fitness after more than a year of at-home workouts, we recommend purchasing a gift card for them to use whenever they’re ready.
o) Delicious sweets from a famous NYC bakery
If your spouse has a sweet tooth, you can send her Milk Bar, which delivers its iconic and decadent cakes, cookies, and truffles to her doorstep.
p) A soothing bath salt set
If you adore your girlfriend but dislike seeing her exhausted, you can give her this luxurious bath set, which includes two types of soaking salts and a coconut milk bath. There are three available fragrance profiles: eucalyptus, sandalwood, cassis, and Haitian vetiver.
