Is there a more stressful gift than a girlfriend gift? Maybe your girlfriend is the kind to drop a bunch of hints, or maybe she’s keeping things mysterious. Either way, the stakes can feel very high — especially on Valentine’s Day (which is in four days, by the way) or when celebrating a big anniversary. To make the process fun and easy rather than potentially relationship-ending, we’ve honed a list of 40 gifts guaranteed to please every type of girlfriend, from anniversary splurges to little “just because” pick-me-ups.
Ranging from cookware to beauty products to outdoor gear, the options are a mix of Strategist favorites and newly surfaced items, some practical and others luxe enough that she probably wouldn’t think to buy them for herself. To make your search even easier, all the gifts on this list are available on Amazon and should be in stock and available to ship in time for February 14 if you select the fastest shipping option.
