Finding the perfect gift for a woman can be tricky. In addition to your budget and her taste, you also have to consider the occasion, as well as how long you have known this particular woman. A birthday gift should feel personal, while an anniversary gift should be a bit lavish. Gifts for female friends or co-workers can be lower in price, and a bit less personalized. Some women love jewelry, while other ladies are foodies who would much rather have a home-cooked meal than a gold necklace. There are gals who love the latest gadgets, and others who prefer knitting or handicrafts. With so many variables in play, finding that perfect gift can take a lot of time. To help you narrow your search, we’ve curated a list of the very best gifts for women. Our list includes jewelry, perfume, books, music, watches, movies, home goods, and more.
