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 in 2022:

These skin-loving serums

gift ideas for women

Bye Bye Lines Hyaluronic Acid, $49

Every skincare-loving girlie needs a good set of serums, and I love these from It Cosmetics. You can get three in total, a hyaluronic acid, a niacinamide and a glycolic acid serum.

These hand-illustrated zodiac prints

gift ideas for women

Olive et Oriel Cancer Celestial Zodiac Art Print A3, $44.95

Olive et Oriel offers these beautifully detailed zodiac prints that make the perfect gift for the astrology lover in your life. Each artwork is printed here in Australia using all-pigment aqueous inks and matte fine art stock milled from 100% sustainable forests. How good?! Obvs, you need to pick the right zodiac sign for the gift recipient, but bonus points if you sort out the frame, too.

This Spell dress

Spell creates dreamy dresses season after season, and this romantic little off-the-shoulder mini is no exception.

This facial toning device

BEAR Mini, $329

The skincare geniuses at FOREO (behind those skincare devices you see all over Instagram) have brought out a mini version of their best-selling BEAR face toning device, and it’s nothing but good (skin) vibes. Geddit? ’cause it vibrates, it’s like a mini massage for your face?! Anyway, moving on.

These Mejuri gold earrings

21 Pressie Ideas If You Don’t Wanna Completely Disappoint The Lady In Your Life This Xmas

Croissant Dôme Hoops, $118

The best thing about gold earrings is you’re layering, so even if your boo already has a pair, then a second can still go down as an absolute treat.

This beachy bucket hat

21 Pressie Ideas If You Don’t Wanna Completely Disappoint The Lady In Your Life This Xmas

LOC Holiday Bucket Hat in Peach Bloom, $129

Sun safety is bloody serious stuff, but it can also be über stylish. My favourite type of Christmas? No hat, no presents.

The Ultra Violette sunscreen

gift ideas for women

Ultra Violette Daydream Screen SPF50 Tinted Veil, $55

Speaking of sun safety – you’ve probably seen the Ultra Violette sunscreen all over beauty Instagram. That’s because it’s 50 SPF (nothing works for skin better than sun protection), 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

21 Pressie Ideas If You Don’t Wanna Completely Disappoint The Lady In Your Life This Xmas

Byredo Rose of No Man’s Land (from $341)

The Rose Of No Man’s Land Eau de Parfum by Byredo was the winner in Mecca’s Beauty Election last year (where thousands of beauty fans cast their votes on their fave products), 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.

These Alias Mae slides

gift ideas for women

Alias Mae Clove Slides ($199.95)

Comfy shoes are having a fashion moment. Blame it on quarantine. Stilettos? Never heard of her. Get in for a pair of the Alias Mae Clove Slides before they sell out.

These Tony Bianco heels

21 Pressie Ideas If You Don’t Wanna Completely Disappoint The Lady In Your Life This Xmas

Tony Bianco Caprice Heels, $170

Speaking of comfy shoes – if you are going out, then mid and low heels are absolutely the go right now. So is ‘optimism dressing’, a.k.a. dressing in bold, bright colours to shake off the doom and gloom of La Niña. You can get two birds with one stone with these pink, green and yellow heels from Tony Bianco.

This mix-and-match sheet set from Bed Threads

21 Pressie Ideas If You Don’t Wanna Completely Disappoint The Lady In Your Life This Xmas

Bed Threads Build Your Own Bundle here

I may never shut up about how much I love my Bed Threads sheets (not sponsored!! just love them!!). 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 above) makes me want to climb into bed and never leave.

The Dyson Airwrap

gift ideas for women

Dyson Airwrap ($899)

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

21 Pressie Ideas If You Don’t Wanna Completely Disappoint The Lady In Your Life This Xmas

Ugg The Classic Ultra Mini, $190

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

gift ideas for women

TJ Swim Jade Shorts, $69.99 (usually $99.99)

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 earlier last month.

These Nike vintage-look sneakers

Nike Blazer Low Platform, $120.99 (usually $150)

The Nike Blazer Low Platform sneaks are about harnessing “the old-school look of Nike b-ball” look but with a modern twist (and suede details). Annnnnd, I just bought a pair.
