small studded hoop earring

A mini pavé huggie to up her ear game…

With all those hours spent on Zoom, she needs the perfect eye-catching earscape. Otherwise known as a stacked collection of piercings that perfectly rep her style. And thanks to this hypoallergenic, gold-plated huggie, she’ll have just the right amount of sparkle to wear every day. It’ll last through showers and sweaty workouts (without that annoying green residue left behind). Plus she can wear it alone, or as a pair. It’s the essential earring she’ll rock all the time. ($24/single, Studs)

tie-dye sweatpants

Tie-dye joggers she’ll never wanna change out of…

Working from home? Sweats. Running errands? Sweats. Lounging around? Also sweats. Made from buttery-soft fabric, these pants are hand-dyed. They’re also tailored, so size up if she prefers a looser fit (uh, who doesn’t). All materials are sustainably sourced and produced by a family-run mill in the US. And a huge bonus...they’re pill-resistant. So no annoying little fabric balls lining the waistband. We dig it. ($73+, Softwear)

Buy it
Lilly Pulitzer Gabriel Dress

A breezy, beautiful tunic that’ll give you major spring break vibes…

We’re talking sunshine, salty air, and something frozen in your hand. This dress has the power to make you feel OOO even if you don’t have any vacay plans at all. Thanks to its lightweight fabric, ruffle hems, and eye-catching, mood-boosting print. Oh, and the 3/4 sleeves make it perfect for a walk along the beach (or a run across town for brunch, if that’s more your scene). Plus it's machine washable and wrinkle-resistant. What can’t it do? Stay in stock for much longer, that’s what. ($198, Lilly Pulitzer)*

milk bar sweets box with truffles, pie, and cookies

A Milk Bar sampler box because why choose one dessert when she can have it all…

We’re talking birthday truffles, chocolate truffles, a pie slice, and assorted cookies. And we all know that the quickest route to someone’s heart is through their stomach. Add to cart so she can munch away. ($52, Milk Bar)

Buy it
individual coffee bags

A coffee variety pack to make early morning meetings semi-bearable…

Whoever sets a meeting before 9am is...seriously deranged. But with this box, she’ll get to try organic Vietnamese coffee infused with flavors like vanilla, churro, and salted caramel. And the best part? She won’t need any fancy equipment. The bags fold out to fit over a mug. All she has to do is boil and pour water. Now she can add ‘barista’ to her resume ($52/32 pack, Copper Cow Coffee)

Buy it
light pink nail polish

A one-step nail color that won’t call for a top or base coat…

And it won’t immediately chip or peel. The secret is in the formula. It’s got argan oil, vitamin B5, and vitamin C. So once her two coats are dry, she’ll be able to get back to work without a fear of smudging. Bonus...this polish is cruelty-free and vegan. ($9.99, Orly)

Buy it
eyebrow pencil

A two-in-one brow pencil if she’s obsessed with keeping her brows in line…

Raise your hand if your brow game could use a lil' upgrade after WFH for two years. Us too. But now she can groom and shape hers with just one tool. The angled pencil tip means the color can be applied easily for a more natural, hair-like look. And the setting gel will keep everything in place. No matter what she’s got going on in her day. Cheers to her heading back to the office... ($14, The Lip Bar via Target)

Buy it
pet-friendly plants

A plant bundle that’s also pet-friendly for her fur babies…

So she can be a plant and pet parent at the same time. This duo requires bright direct or indirect light, and can be watered every one to two weeks. They both come in grow pots. Fun fact: The palm is known for its air-purifying qualities. While the Peperomia obtusifolia is resistant to disease. So it’s not very temperamental. Aka brown thumbs welcome. ($54, The Sill)

Buy it
box of wine

A box of wine that’s portioned by the glass…

And contains brut, red, and rosé. So she can pick and choose depending on what’s for dinner that night. Each is made in California. Without added sugars. Or added sulfites (known to give that awful headache or hangover). Which means she’ll just get a great-tasting glass each time. Drink up. ($96/12 pack, Usual)

Buy it
leak proof black leggings

Maternity and postpartum leak-proof leggings that have got serious stretch…

So as she’s cooking a tiny human (that’s how it works, right?), she can have all-around protection from leaks and odor. As her belly grows, the waistband will grow with it. And because of the absorbent layers, she’ll be safe from bladder leaks, amniotic fluid, and lochia. They’ve also been tested to withstand 300+ washes, so she can toss ‘em in the laundry every day. Oh, did we mention they have pockets? Totally mom-approved. ($88, Motherfigure)

Buy it
caramel marshmallows covered in chocolate with nuts on top

Caramel marshmallows for a midday pick-me-up…

Everyone knows the dreaded afternoon slump. But it’s nothing a ridiculously sweet snack can’t fix. Paired with caramel, coated in chocolate, and topped with crunchy walnuts and pecans, these marshmallows are an all-time favorite. So the next time she’s feeling sleepy at 3pm, she can enjoy one of these. Or two or three. ($32, Vosges)

Buy it
emerald necklace

A delicate emerald necklace that’s perfect for layering…

An updated take on a classic diamond necklace, this emerald one is ethically sourced and adds a fun pop of color to any neck party. It comes in white, yellow, and rose gold so she can mix metals or match with her everyday faves. Plus, 25% of profits go to breast cancer research. Shine bright. ($150, Alexis Jae)

Buy it
you are magic card

A card that’ll remind her just how magical she is…

Wanna brighten her day in just a few minutes? A thoughtfully written card will do the trick. And as an added bonus, this one comes with a magnetic lapel pin. The inside of the card is blank, too. Time to put pen to paper. ($11.50, Yellow Owl Workshop)

Buy it
shea butter body product

Shea butter that’ll fight dry skin…

Self-care is the name of the game. And with this multipurpose shea butter, she’ll be able to indulge in a little much-needed me-time. This particular shea butter comes from the Tungteiya Women’s Shea Butter Association in Ghana. Passed down through generations, local women handcraft the moisturizing butter to absolute perfection. So the quality is high and, in return, the local Ghanaian artisans are paid fairly. Do good, feel good. ($21, The Body Shop)

Buy it

On-the-go heat presses that’ll help with period cramps…

Uterine discomfort can be a real pain. These air-activated presses heat up to 136 degrees and can adhere outside of any underwear. So if it’s their time of the month or they deal with pain caused by endometriosis, these are a great gift. BTW, they’re not made to be placed directly onto the skin. PS: This brand also has supportive underwear with special pockets for their pelvic compresses. Let’s get healing. ($12/3 pack, Nyssa)

Buy it

The yummiest edible cookie dough….

Who doesn’t love a bite (or two) of cookie dough? With Deux, she’ll be able to enjoy the dough straight from the jar, or can pop it in the oven to bake. It’s plant-based, so no raw egg to worry about, plus it’s gluten-free. This trio comes with brownie batter, chocolate chip, and peanut butter flavors. Oh, the chocolate chip has zinc and elderberry for immune support. Time to scoop up and chill out. ($45/3 pack, Deux)

Buy it

Fine art that she can add to her growing gallery wall…

Enter: A dreamy, joyful print that will brighten any space and is just so fun to look at. It’s available framed or unframed, and in a plethora of sizes so that she can customize just to her liking. Each season, Spacey Studios curates new, exclusive drops. They work with emerging artists who are gaining recognition from top brands and renowned galleries. So you can start building her art collection without throwing your budget out the window. Hang it up. ($195+, Spacey Studios)

A trackable friendship bracelet from a brand with a sweet message…

Sisterhood of the traveling bracelet. This one is super cute to stack and it comes from a brand that promotes kindness, self-love, and inclusivity. Each “little word” has a tag with a registerable code. You can wear the bracelet as a nice reminder of that word and then pass it on to a woman in your life who needs the mantra more. Whoever wears the bracelet next can also register it so that it’ll  be tracked wherever it goes. ($25, Little Words Project)
