Christmas Gifts for Women


Women can be easy to buy for or they can be hard to buy for – depending on the woman! I have curated a list of Christmas gifts for women that will give you lots of unique gift ideas whether you need gifts for women in their 40s or gifts for women over 50 or really, any woman. Because It’s not about her age. It’s about knowing the woman.

What does she love? What does she really dislike? What does she think is cheesy? What are her hobbies and interests?

Read the Christmas Gifts for Women guide below for ideas in many categories.

Christmas Gifts for Women Who Love to Read

This is gonna sound crazy, but if she loves to read, get her a book. The #1 fiction book in 2019 was Where the Crawdads Sing, but she may have already read that. If she hasn’t, get her that one pronto. It is amazing!! (I am in the “loves to read” category.) Here is a link to the current best sellers on Amazon for more ideas.

This is a fun idea – a book seat/travel pillow. Great for reading in bed or saving your hands if they have carpal tunnel or arthritis. 

Nothing a reader likes better than a winter day, curled up under a blanket, reading and having this soothing rainy day reads candle burning.

This is cool – a book weight to hold the book open while you read.

Gifts for Women Who Love to Workout

Women who love to work out love performance tees and can never have enough of them. This Stella McCarthy tee is especially gorgeous in this blush-mauve color. (Woman who don’t love to work out love them also because they are so comfy!)

She also cannot have enough stainless steel water bottles – like this Hydroflask.

Working out is great for you, but it also causes soreness. Give her a foam roller to work out those sore muscles.

A new yoga mat for the yogi. Jade Yoga makes some of the highest rated mats around. It is the brand I use.

Stocking Stuffers for Women Who Love to Work Out

The awesome Invisibobble hair ties have a strong hold, will not damage hair, or get sweat-soaked.

Keep her safe when she is running or biking at night with these LED slap-it bracelets.

The absolute latest Apple AirPods are now noise cancelling. I include them as a stocking stuffer because they are small, but they would make a great gift for anyone on your list.

This pack of 1475 Fitness stickers for her planner will make planning her workouts, keeping a food diary, and reaching her goals even more fun.

Gifts for Women Who Love to Craft

A Silhouette or Cricut machine is the ultimate crafting tool. If she likes crafting, she needs one of these babies.

Martha Stewart’s latest book, The Martha Manual, will give her hours to sit by the Christmas fire and dream up new projects.

How about this Super Amazing Craft Storage Cart or any of the high quality craft storage items from the Container Store.

Every serious (and not so serious) crafter needs a self-healing cutting mat for rotary or utility knife cutting to avoid damaging other surfaces.

Combine her love of crafting with her love of the word with this  Journaling Bible.

And if you give a crafting gal a Journaling Bible, then she is going to need the Starter Journaling Kit to go with it.

And the Bible Journaling Workbook for ideas.

And this Happy Hand Lettering Guide as well.

Gifts for Women who Love a Pretty Desktop

I love everything Rifle Paper Company and these journals are no exception. I have a set that I take notes in, using each one for a different topic.

These Rose Gold Office Supplies will brighten her desk and her mood as she works.

She absolutely needs tassel paper clips to organize groups of paper.

AND she needs these Rifle Paper Company Binder Clips to go with everything else.

Christmas Gifts for Women Who Travel


Longchamp Totes are the ultimate travel totes.


Nordstrom has a great selection of Passport holders and luggage tags.

If she is running through (or sitting for hours) in airports, she is going to need a portable charger. It is so much better to have your own charging device than fight for a plug with every other traveler in a crowded waiting area.

Travel makeup bags get dirty quickly. If she is on the road a lot, she may need an upgrade. I love this travel makeup bag with a separate compartment in the bottom for brushes.
