There are tiers in the world of gift giving. There are gifts for casual acquaintances, people that’ll make do with a nice bottle of red and a cute card. There are gifts for close friends, someone who you spend a decent amount of time hunting down that perfect item. Then, somewhere at the tippy top of that all-too-real gifting pyramid, you’ll find the girlfriend section, right next to spouses and in-laws, some of the toughest folks to shop for.

Your girlfriend is special, which is why searching for a gift that can match the same level of love, devotion, and care that you feel can be a cause for concern. It can leave you feeling panicked and flustered, two things to really avoid. You need a gift that shows her importance, without seeming too overwhelming or too inappropriate for whatever stage of the relationship you’re both at. Did you just begin a new fling or is she a long-time beau? These things matter. It’s a delicate scale you’re balancing here. You also need a gift that says how much you know your girlfriend, truly know her and all her favorite hobbies, interests, and activities. Bottom line: Your gal deserves something that’s as amazing as she is.

If you’re stressed out just from reading the above, you’re not the only one, believe us. We understand how it may seem impossible to find a gift that says all that. But never fear: We have curated this list of the best gifts for girlfriends, finding the perfect item for personalities of all kinds, from a sporty gal to a bookworm to a skincare lover to everyone in between.

Voluspa Japonica Mini Candle Set

Everyone likes things that smell nice. Some people, however, are scent savants, those who know their favorite notes that strikes their fancy. They are determined to have the best-smelling home. Does your girlfriend fit the this description? Then you can’t go wrong with Voluspa’s set of 12 signature mini candles. Hand-poured in the U.S. with 100 percent natural wicks, this delicious dozen, which includes warm Baltic Amber and fresh Moso Bamboo, are so diverse that it may even introduce your better half to her new favorite fragrance.

Brooklinen Mulberry Silk Pillowcase

As someone who has converted to silk-pillowcase lifestyle (and is a girlfriend to boot), I know that this offering from Brooklinen will delight any gal. For one, silk protects both your hair and skin from damage while you sleep, so you’re basically serving up self care without your girlfriend having to lift a finger. And the pillowcase is cool to the touch and breathable, so climbing into bed and catching some Zzzs has never been easier.

Skin Wynter Hooded Robe

There is nothing, I repeat, nothing that is a more luxe self-care gift than a great plush robe. I’ll go down fighting on that one. Something that’s perfect for going-out prep or winding down for the night—that versatility is hard to find, but once you have it, it’s really hard to let go of. Plus, there’s something so glamorous about cocooning in a massive robe. Skin’s faux-fur robe, made from 100 percent recycled fibers and offered in two chic hues, will quickly become your girlfriend’s favorite piece of clothing. Just you wait.

Tiffany & Co. Interlocking Circles Chain Bracelet

One thing’s for sure: You can never go wrong with gifting your girlfriend a little blue box.

Khaite Olivia Medium Leather Hobo Bag

This season (and any season, really) I’m loving hobo bags, a catch-all pouch for all my on-the-go necessities. They add some depth, some intrigue, to my outfit, playing oh so nicely with my casual looks but are dressy enough to wear on a night out. And this beautiful example from Khaite is no exception. It comes in two stunning hues, and is ready and waiting for your girlfriend to plop in her essentials.

Byredo Mojave Ghost Eau De Parfum

For me, as a self-proclaimed perfume obsessive, it’s easy to say (type?) that a fragrance is a no-brainer for your girlfriend. Figuring the aroma she prefers, however, is tricky. Does she prefer sweet? Sultry? A little dash of nature? Luckily, Mojave Ghost will give you a little bit of everything, with a touch of that fruity sweetness at the top followed by crisp amber and cedarwood at its base. It’s a unique blend that makes an impression, so don’t be shocked when it becomes your girlfriend’s new signature scent.

Dior Midnight B1I Sunglasses

These Dior sunnies imbue summertime cool, and they make enough of a statement without being obnoxious to wear on the daily. The chic butterfly acetate frame, which comes in three colors, will make these your girlfriend’s can’t-go-outside-without sunglasses all season long, from beaches to work trips to brunches. Plus, with 100 percent UVA/UVB protection, this pair does much more than just frame a face.

Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag 1L

I have to admit: Fanny packs have captured my heart. Convenient, cute, and, above all else, a breeze to wear, they make jaunts around town so much easier—and hands-free. Your girlfriend will certainly appreciate a belt bag’s value, too, once you hand her this one from Lululemon. Coming in a wide array of neutral hues, it can easily slide around your waist or over your shoulder with just enough room for the essentials, including your phone. It’s also made from a 100 percent recycled nylon material that’s water repellent, so weather won’t limit where your partner carries her new bag.

Ugg Shearling Maxi Platform Slides

How could anyone forget the Ugg craze this past winter? (If you missed it, don’t stress too much, since actually getting your hands on a pair proved to be a perilous mission). But the shoe brand has always been a hallmark of comfy, cozy footwear, and this pair of slides certainly follows suit. Made from a puffy sheepskin, these are platforms shoes that your girlfriend will be all too happy to slip on.

Mark & Graham Small Travel Jewelry Case

Let’s set the scene. You’re going on a trip with your girlfriend. After a hectic day of travel, you finally reach the hotel room—only for her to discover that her jewelry has been thrown about higgledy-piggledy in her suitcase, all indistinguishable from one another. Not the best way to start a vacation. This is just one of many moments when a travel jewelry case would come in handy, saving her from time spent untangling and keeping all her favorite pieces in one place.
