Don’t Stress—Here’s What to Get the Woman in Your Life
We know: there’s a lot of pressure to find the perfect holiday gift, especially if it’s for your bestie, your work wife, your sister, or your mom. There’s a lot to think about: Are the ingredients safe and nontoxic? Is the supply chain clean and benefiting others? Will she use it? Is this something she actually wants? The list goes on and on, but don’t let that send you running to the gift card aisle. There’s something for every woman in your life in this MAED gift guide.
Rose Radiance Trio by Biossance
You’ve probably heard about the beauty benefits of rose oil–like its ability to moisturize while reducing inflammation and getting rid of those pesky red spots. This skin set includes rose oil to brighten, firm, and even out skin tone, rose lip balm to moisturize and plump lips, and a vitamin C and rose face mask to rejuvenate tired skin.
Indoor Herb Garden
Nothing is fresher than produce straight from the garden, and this smart planter makes growing fresh herbs, flowers, and vegetables possible year-round, no outdoor space required. The classic garden option includes starter pods for sweet basil, curly parsley, chives, cherry tomatoes, or thyme—a perfect start for homemade pasta sauces.
Ashwagandha Sun Potion
Think of ashwagandha as the magic healing ingredient in adaptogenic potions. Just a teaspoon of this powder in water, tea, milk, wine (we aren’t judging) can help strengthen immune systems, give energy boosts, destress the mind, and help rid the body of free radicals. It really is the gift that keeps on giving.
Silk Pajama Jumpsuit
Nothing feels as good as slipping into a set of silk pajamas, and lounging around—and this chic design will have the woman in your life feeling like the queen of cool. This modern, adjustable fit is designed to take you through your day, from morning to night. It even has pockets. Need we say more?
Sunday Riley Subscription Box
What’s a better gift than the gift of sleep? This box has everything needed to create a perfect nighttime routine, from a nightly skin regimen—think, anti-aging night oil, depuffing eye cream, and a brightening glycolic acid treatment—to products that literally make sleeping better—like a weighted blanket and silk sleep mask—and other dreamy goodies. Trust us, she wants this.
Price: $95 for one-time purchase
A Zodiac Necklace
Understated and unique, this necklace is crafted with 14-karat gold and personalized with a handmade zodiac charm bordered with white diamonds. It’s perfect for the woman in your life who knows what’s going on in the stars and proud of her sun sign.
Books are good for the soul. The new Amazon Kindle has a light that adjusts for indoors, outdoors, day, and night, minimizing glare when reading on the beach and minimizing blue light when trying to unwind from the day. The battery also lasts weeks—ideal for her next vacation.
Brew Your Own Kombucha Kit
Nothing says holistic like brewing ‘booch, and this kit comes with everything a novice could need to get started, including the SCOBY and starter tea. Brewing kombucha means getting to experiment with flavors (hello, farmers market blueberries.). If she always brings kombucha to the party, this is for her.
These asymmetric studs are a celestial dream featuring one moon and one star. They’re the perfect gift for the luna lover in your life and serve as a reminder that the same stars and moon shine above everyone, no matter where we are or where we come from. Plus, these earrings are handcrafted by artisans who’ve escaped human trafficking and 100% of the proceeds go toward providing them with fair wages, education, and care.
Opal Gua Sha Set
Designed to improve circulation and rejuvenate skin cells, this opal gua sha and roller will give her the glowiest skin while also reducing puffiness and relaxing her facial muscles. Gua sha has been one of the biggest wellness trends of the year and for good reason: it’s bodywork you can do at home that actually works to relieve pain and inflammation.
A good rule of thumb when buying a gift is to imagine something she wants, but wouldn’t necessarily buy for herself. She’s caring, loving, and gives so much, so show her how much you care with a gift that proves it really is the thought that counts.
