When it comes to light fragrances, Guerlain’s Rosa Rossa, from the brand’s Aqua Allegoria Harvest collection, is the top of the class, the head cheerleader, the queen bee. How did it achieve this status? It’s a scent that’s non-polarizing in the least, a scent that delicately blends Bulgarian and Turkish roses, lychee and blackcurrant accords, and rose water.

Best Gift for Blooming Beauties 

Venus et Fleur Fleura Porcelain Vase

Yes, we said that bit about bouquets being a banal gift, but it definitely doesn’t apply to Venus et Fleur. Why? The bespoke floral atelier offers, get this, arrangements that stay in bloom for up to year. How? The company uses a proprietary solution that keeps its roses—all of which are sourced from farms in Ecuador—fresh and perfectly pigmented. They’re billed as “eternity flowers.” It’s no wonder Venus et Fleur has become one of the leading delivery services for bouquets, offering a product, a romantic gesture, that’ll last well beyond a day.

Best Gift for It Girls

Celine Triomphe Bag 

There are four criteria for a bag to achieve “It” status: provenance, quality, versatility and style. Hitting all these targets is Celine’s Triomphe, a carryall that was created in the 1970s by the maison’s founder after being inspired by the chain surrounding the Arc de Triomphe. The bag, with its dual-sided C, became an instant hit but sadly fell by the wayside over the decades. More recently, thanks to the label’s creative Heidi Silmane, the design has been revived for a new generation, quickly becoming the go-to accessory for celebrities, influencers and fashion fans across the globe. It has found its rightful place at the center of the zeitgeist—and hopeful on the shoulder of your leading lady.

Best Gift for Fragrance Fanatics  

Diptyque Iconic Trio Gift Set 

A candle: How original, right? But like bouquets from Venus et Fleur, Diptyque’s offerings are a cut above the rest. The brand has been creating some of the sweetest scents since 1643, constantly adding to its stable of candles. But the three that continue to lead the pack are Berries, Fig Tree and Roses. Now, you don’t have to decide between them, because Diptyque has corralled the trio in a neat package that’s just ready and waiting to fill your loved one’s home.

Best Gift for Design Devotees

54Kibo Couple Red Throw Pillows

A great throw pillow should stand out. A great throw pillow should tell a story. A great throw pillow should express one’s personality. Taking all this into account is 54Kibo, a company that commissions pieces from some of the most skilled artisans across the African Diaspora. Indeed, the site carries a beautiful assortment of pillows, but the one that really makes a romantic gesture is the Couple Red, a design inspired by the work of Malian photographer Malick Sidibe. Which is why it’s a great throw pillow.

Codigo 1530 Rosa Tequila

Rosé or red wine are conventional gifting bottles—but your partner isn’t conventional, is she? That’s why this pink tequila is a perfect alternative to your typical spirits. The tequila itself is aged in cabernet barrels, which helps to give it its unique pink tint, and the taste is as smooth as silver tequila can be.

Best Gift for Content Creators

Glamcor Multimedia X Pro Kit

Despite its detractors, posting pictures and videos on social media apps has become an artform. It’s also a profession. But she doesn’t have to be a full-fledged influencer to want her content to pop. And if she’s looking to emulate the pros (or is one herself), this multimedia kit from Glamcor—which includes a telescopic stand, remote control, flexible LED lights, phone clip and dual voltage power supply—is just what she needs to make her TikTok video go viral.

Best Gift for Handbag Buffs

Prada Galleria Ombré Saffiano Leather Bag

When it comes to Prada bags, the devil is always in the details. Its stable of carryalls—from the Tessuto and Cleo to the Borsa Cerniera and Triangle—are all iconic in their own right, each with a set of unique features that reflect the essence of the brand. But the style that perhaps captures the codes of Prada best is the Galleria. First introduced in 2007, the Galleria—named after Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the site of Prada’s first store in 1913—is made of the label’s signature Saffiano leather and has a ladylike silhouette indicative of designer Miuccia Prada’s personal aesthetic. It also comes in a range of colors every season, with this ombré-effect pastel blue being the stunner of 2022. The Galleria is a bag to be treasured, and if your wife doesn’t own one already, now’s the time to get her this modern-day classic.

Best Gift for Whiskey Drinkers

Jane Walker by Johnnie Walker Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Good ol’ Johnnie met his match when Jane Walker was introduced back in 2018. The spirit isn’t different from the company’s existing best-selling Black Label blend, but by offering a female version of its Striding Man logo, Johnnie Walker, despite the initial backlash, perfectly reflected women’s growing interest in liquor. Fine whiskey ain’t just for the boys, and we tip our hats to that.

Best Gift for Delicious Divas

Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Eau de Parfum Spray

Many that’ve come in close proximity to Rihanna have praised how she smells: “Heaven” being the most common analogy, and “delicious” coming a close second. And though fans would like to believe that it’s her natural musk, reports have cited that her fragrance of choice is actually Kilian’s Love, Don’t Be Shy. The eau de parfum features notes of plush rose, honeysuckle, orange blossom absolute and marshmallow sugar accord. It’s sweet, sexy and packs a whole lot of attitude: RiRi in a bottle, basically.

Gifts for Belles of the Ball

Roger Vivier Belle Vivier Leather-Trimmed Bouclé-Tweed Pumps

For a movie about bondage and sadomasochism, Belle du Jour is a virtual runway show of prim and proper styles. In the film, Catherine Deauve was outfitted by none other than Yves Saint Laurent, who dressed the star in streamlined coats and elegant shift dresses. Her shoes? The Belle Vivier from Roger Vivier, a low-heeled pump with an unmissable Pilgrim buckle, which takes its name from the French flick. It’s a style with a tremendous amount of cachet, charm and, in a covert way, flirtiness—one that’ll appeal to any woman that has these qualities. How’s that for a backstory?

Best Gift for Golden Gals

Tom Ford Soleil Look Set

In a deal worth $2.8 billion, Estée Lauder bought Tom Ford (the brand). This sizable figure is not only based on the strength of Ford’s name as a purveyor of unmitigated luxury but also the effectiveness of the products offered. This beautifully packaged set, for instance, features a shimmering body oil that applies smoothly, a blush compact with two colors that’ll glide on the skin softly and a balm that’ll soothe and hydrate lips like none other. The kit essentially gives wearers a golden glow, as if they were reclining under the summer sun. It certainly has the Midas touch—a quality that we always expect from Tom Ford.

Maison Michel Virginie Grosgrain-Trimmed Wool-Felt Fedora

There are some women that like hats, and others that don’t. This line is pretty defined. If your wife falls into the former category, she’s absolutely aware of Maison Michel, a company that produces couture-level toppers. To wit: It is the official milliner of Chanel. And its most celebrated style is the classic fedora, this one made of soft wool felt and framed by a tonal grosgrain ribbon. As a hat lover, she may have one already, but if she doesn’t, the buck should stop at this beauty.

Best Gift for Bathing Beauties

Stylest Puff Sleeve One-Piece Swimsuit

Bathing suits are a dime a dozen, but the ones offered by Stylest are truly singular. The brand was founded by three fashion veterans, all of whom saw a niche in the swimwear market that needed to be filled. Primarily, the trio noticed the lack of chest support found in most maillots and two-pieces. And if a style did hold everything up, they were either too revealing or too matronly. Their solution: Aqualingerie, incredibly chic designs that are a cross between swimsuits and shapewear. And the best-seller, the one that’s all the rage in the fashion industry, is the Puff Sleeve one-piece, a versatile style that your wife will sport for many summers to come.

Best Gift for Style Setters

Bottega Veneta Curved Shape Felted Wool Coat

Bottega Veneta, once a steady Italian luxury brand that offered classic styles for women of a certain age, is now one of the buzziest, forward-thinking labels in the fashion industry. Kudos should be given to designer Daniel Lee, who left his post late last year. But taking up his mantle with aplomb is Matthieu Blazy. With his first collection, the new creative director—who cut his teeth working behind the scenes at Celine, Balenciaga and Calvin Klein—proved that he has the chops. His pieces played with proportions and toyed with fabrics; he pushed boundaries, but in a way that didn’t deviate from Bottega Veneta’s core aesthetic. Case in point: This beautiful felted-wool peacoat with a pronounced collar and eye-catching curved back panel—a piece that’ll surely become a collector’s item in due time.
