The holiday season is going to be here before we know it, so there’s no time like the present to begin researching the best Christmas gifts. If you’ve got women in your life, chances are one of their top love languages is gifts, which makes it that much more important that you get them precisely what they want this holiday season. Whether it’s your girlfriend, wife, mom, sister, favorite aunt, or platonic friend, giving thoughtful and worthwhile gifts is one of the best ways to show you care and value having them in your life. Gifts, especially Christmas gifts for women, are certainly not one size fits all. Everyone has different tastes, and even within those tastes, there are a million ways to go wrong when trying to buy the best gift. The gift-giving process can be overwhelming, to say the least, so let us guide you through some of the best gifts for her that we’ve found online.
Whether the woman in question prefers fitness equipment, makeup, flowers, jewelry, perfume, or food — there’s something on this list she’ll enjoy. Christmas is the season of giving, and thankfully there are a ton of new, seasonal and timeless gift options you can give the special woman in your life. We’ve included all of the above so you’ve got plenty to choose from, and have consulted numerous female Spy team members for their input so the recommendations are coming right from the source. No matter who you’re gifting to during the 2021 holiday season, we’ve got your back. Here are the best gifts for women in 2021.
Theragun Mini Massage Gun
Mini massage guns are definitely the next big frontier in recovery technology, and this one from Therabody is one of the best ones available. It’s a small, lightweight, compact massage gun that packs a major punch and is perfect for soothing sore shoulders, biceps, glutes, or sore muscles in general. It’s got three calibrated speeds of 1750, 2100 and 2400 RPMs, and the ergonomic grip makes it easy to hold. It’s also super portable, and designed to be used on-the-go, whether she’s on the side of a mountain, mid-set at the gym or in a yoga class.
Electric Wine Bottle Corkscrew Opener
This is a must-have counter gadget and gift idea for wine lovers, so if she loves vino, then it’s a no-brainer. It seamlessly removes corks in seconds and can open up to 30 bottles on a single charge. All you need to do is press a button to enjoy a bottle, a handy tool to have for after-work debrief sessions or at a dinner party with friends. The charging station won’t take up much room in her kitchen and it’ll look sleek on her counter between uses. This was one of our most popular Christmas gifts last year, and we highly recommend it if she doesn’t already have one.
Brooklinen Super-Plush Robe
What feels better than snuggling up in a plushy bathrobe after a hot shower or bath? It’s like giving yourself a warm hug. This super-soft bathrobe by Brooklinen features Turkish spa-like material that will turn any regular bathroom into a zen haven. Your girlfriend, wife, mom, or sister could probably use some pampering, so gift her eternal comfort in the form of this robe.
Bold Herringbone Chain Necklace
A piece of jewelry is always a safe bet, and this Herringbone necklace is both classic and trendy, and a great Christmas gift for your wife, girlfriend and even daughter. It comes in gold and silver, and makes for a great wardrobe staple to wear every day or on special occasions. It also comes in two lengths, so she can layer it or rock it solo.
Scentbird Perfume Subscription
If your bae loves trying new fragrances, this is the gift for her. With a subscription, you can choose from best-selling perfumes to send to her on a monthly basis. Chocked full of designer scents, Scentbird is a great option if you’re unsure about what to buy because it allows you to try without the hassle of a long-term commitment. Plus, you can cancel at any time.
The Ninja CREAMi will be the highlight of the year for ice cream lovers, especially those with dietary restrictions. Use it to make ice cream, smoothies, yogurts, sorbet, and more using ingredients from your kitchen. This means you can DIY your own desserts out of dairy and gluten-free products and also add in mixers such as fruit, chocolate syrup, and candy as you please. What’s not to love?

This bamboo one comes with multiple levels that swivel out from underneath one another for a convenient, storage-friendly design. It also comes with three serving knives made of stainless steel that fit neatly in a tiny storage drawer.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
If your special lady dries her hair every morning or even semi-occasionally, then the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer makes a great gift. Yes, we know this hair dryer is absurdly expensive, but it truly is the gold standard of luxury hair dryers. This hair dryer is built to protect hair from heat damage, a common concern with frequent hair dryer use, and has fast drying+ and controlled styling built in to increase smoothness by 75%, shine by 132% and decrease flyaways up to 61%. It’s engineered for a variety of hair types so no matter what your girl’s hair is like (or even if you don’t know) this hair dryer is a great pick for taking care of it. It’s also lightweight and balanced for comfortable usage, and the magnetic attachments make switching between modes easy.
Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven
Dutch ovens are as much decoration as they are high-quality cooking tools, which makes them excellent Christmas gifts for anyone who loves to cook and bake. They come in bright, beautiful colors that’ll compliment any stovetop and have 45% larger handles that provide for a sure grip. The sand-colored interior is very resistant to wear and the composite knob on top can withstand temperatures upwards of 500 degrees Fahrenheit. The enamel surface is impenetrable and therefore great for acidic marinating or storing raw foods effectively.
L’Occitane Holiday Hand Cream Indulgences Trio
L’Occitane is a great brand for a luxurious gift at an affordable price. Their hand creams are Oprah-approved, and this trio would make a great gift for a female coworker, colleague or neighbor who could use a little treat.

They come decked out in a festive holiday box so your gift wrapping can be minimal, and they’ll ship from Amazon in just a few days.

Winc Wine Subscription
Wine is almost guaranteed to satisfy any woman in your life gift-wise this holiday season. But, rather than getting her just one bottle, why not give a few months of premium-hand picked wine in the form of a subscription? Winc is one of our favorite wine clubs because all of their wines are made using minimal-intervention techniques and sustainable farming practices. They’ve got a wide variety of blends to choose from, from reds to whites, sparkling wines and rosés. You can gift a 1, 2 or 3-month subscription easily, or add a customized amount to a gift card.

This one is fresh, warm, and fruity, with notes of a bouquet of roses and blackcurrant leaves.
Auspicious Shiba Inu Stuffed Plush Toy

Our Place Home Cook Duo
If your mom, sister, sister-in-law or girlfriend loves to cook, you’ve got to check out Our Place.

We’ve reviewed both pieces on the site and love them both, and you can save $60 off their individual prices if you purchase them together in this set.
