Coming up with Christmas gift ideas for women isn’t that hard if you’re a woman. I usually just scope around for stuff *I* would quite like, then see which of my friends and family would also love it. At least, that’s how I’ve always seen Chrissy gift planning – that might not be you. In this case, you’ve come to the right place!
I’ve collated a bunch of the best Christmas presents to get your sister, mum, girlfriend or bestie (partly in the hope that my sister, mum, and other loved ones will see this list and sort me out). I’ve also put together these gift ideas for women for all the boyfriends who are right now struggling to think of something good. I see you.
Will these gift ideas work for every woman you know? Probably not. But whether she’s into fitness, skincare, fashion, books, homewares or just likes being pampered, there should be something here for everyone.
The best Christmas gift ideas for women for 2023
These skin-loving serums
Every skincare-loving girlie needs a good set of serums, and I love these from Glossier (and yes, they ship to Aus now!!!). You can get three in total — hyaluronic acid + vitamin b5, vitamin C + magnesium and a niacinamide + zinc serum.
A bloody good pillow
I know gifting someone a pillow sounds kinda silly, but if your giftee fkn loves a nap, they know how important a good quality pillow is (and they’ll appreciate it).
This astrology book
A very unashamed plug here, my bestie and P.TV’s resident astrologer (and Managing Editor), Matty Galea just released his debut astrology book. While I might be biased, all signs point to this being the perfect Christmas gift for all the astro-girlies in your life.
This Spell dress
Spell creates dreamy dresses season after season, and this romantic halterneck maxi is no exception.
This skincare device
Pictured: My happy place! You’ve probably seen these babies all over your FYP, and for good reason. We’re all obsessed with the skincare benefits. They’re a little exxy, so they’re a great gift idea if you can rally the group chat.
These Mejuri gold earrings
The best thing about the layered jewellery trend is that even if your boo already has a pair, then a second can still go down as an absolute treat. At the moment, we’re frothing Mejuri, and your girl will too.
This beachy cowboy hat
Sun safety is bloody serious stuff, but it can also be über stylish — cowboy hat case in point. My favourite type of Christmas? No hat, no presents.
The Ultra Violette sunscreen
Speaking of sun safety – you’ve probably seen the Ultra Violette sunscreen all over beauty Instagram. This SPF 50 feels like a serum, is non-oily, is packed full of antioxidants, and doubles as a bit of a skin tint.
This top-voted perfume
The Rose Of No Man’s Land Eau de Parfum by Byredo is a best-seller, so really – you can’t go wrong here. It has notes of pink pepper, Turkish rose petals, raspberry blossom, Turkish rose absolute, papyrus and white amber. Heaven.
This mix-and-match sheet set from Bed Threads
I may never shut up about how much I love my Bed Threads sheets. I love the fact that you can build your own bundle and mix and match all the pretty coloured sheets. Perfect for those, like me, who are indecisive as fuck. Ooft, this colour combo (pictured) makes me want to climb into bed and never leave.
The Dyson Airwrap
The Holy Grail of hair styling tools, the Dyson Airwrap is how us normies can get influencer-level hair without forking out for a blow-dry. Yes, it’s a little pricey, but Dyson knows its way around an air tool.
These snug Uggs
I can’t stress this enough: wearing snug Uggs around the house is the ultimate in comfort. Yes, Christmas is in summer, but you know what comes after summer? The colder months. Be prepared with the fluff. Plus, I can’t get these off my FYP!
This TJ Swim bikini
TJ Swim (an Aussie label with a big focus on sustainability) has a lot of goods on offer, but I’m obsessed with these cute swim shorts that went pretty much viral on TikTok.
These Nike vintage-look sneakers
The Nike Blazer Low Platform sneaks are about harnessing “the old-school look of Nike b-ball” style, but with a modern twist (and suede details). Annnnnd, I just bought a pair.
This ‘blow your mind’ vibrator
Gift her the gift she really wants this Christmas: an orgasm. Seriously though, the By Rosewell Dip is one of our resident sex writers’ favourite sex toys for a reason – it works and works very well.
These sick sunnies
You can’t go wrong with these cat-eye frames from Luv Lou. They’re the perfect summer accessories and will win you massive brownie points.
These In the Roundhouse Plates
Be transported to the Amalfi Coast with this luxe dining set. It’s a mix’n’match of In The Roundhouse’s bestselling Seafood and Italian Collections. These plates will keep that European summer dream alive until you can actually get there again.
This Black Blaze candle
You honestly can’t go wrong with a candle, especially not one this cool.
This Book That’s Had a Choke Hold On Us All
This is the perfect gift if she hasn’t read this book yet. Just be prepared to say goodbye to the lady in your life until she finishes it.
This paint-by-numbers set
If she loves art or just needs a fun hobby, this cute paint-by-numbers set from Paint Like Frida is the perfect gift idea.
This funky towel
For the woman who already has everything, a cute pop of colour in the bathroom with these bougie bath towels is a good gift idea.
This stunning skincare set
As much as I’m obsessed with Bangn Body’s skincare, I’m even more obsessed with this limited edition terry towelling cosmetics case.
This vintage-style film camera
If she already loves a happy snap, she’ll really love this reusable vintage-style film camera.
This cute phone case
Our guess is that she’s still sporting her phone case from over a year ago and it’s lookin’ a little manky to say the least. Upgrade her with a shiny (literally) new case from CASETiFY.
These sick wine glasses
If she fancies herself a cocktail, she’ll adore these Fazeek flower glasses. They come in a bunch of different colours too, so you can pick her fave.
This cute cowboy boot match striker
For the candle lover who already has a million candles.
