For the Relaxation Queen
Transport her to the seaside of France with this Minerals De Mer body soak ($14) from Pursoma. The French grey sea salt helps release toxins, while the wild harvested seaweed helps restore moisture to the skin.

This cheerful combination of heart covered mesh hipster and red socks ($25) from Happy Socks is perfect for the gal who likes to lounge around the house. Dance music from Risky Business is completely optional.
For the Gourmand
Ladies with a sweet tooth will love this limited edition gift box of a dozen freshly baked cookies ($45) from New York’s famed Maman bakery and cafe. It’s being shipped nationwide and comes with a card that can be personalized with the message of your choosing.
For the Bubbly Aficionado
Who doesn’t love a bottle of rosé? When it’s a sparkling rosé, even better. Franciacorta is the sparking wine region of Italy that is often compared to France’s Champagne region. Ca’ Del Bosco‘s bottle of Franciacorta Brut Cuvee Prestige Rosé ($60) received 90 points from Wine Advocate.
For the Mane Maven
Hair care is a serious subject matter to many people. If it’s important to her, then she’ll appreciate that you noticed with this Vitamin Shampoo & Conditioner Duo & brush kit ($100) by Julien Farel. Farel is a favorite among celebrities and athletes alike, so much so, that he’s had a pop-up salon at the US Open for the past 10 years.
For the Secure in Love
Sometimes a simple token of your love and devotion is all she really wants. This delicate 18″ chain necklace with lock & key pendant ($250) from Shinola is a wonderful expression of it.
For the Yogi on the Go
With 160 studios across the nation this gift card ($350 or any denomination of your choosing) to CorePower Yoga is not only super flexible to use when traveling, but will also keep her flexible in her mind body practice. Namaste.
For La Vie en Rose
If she literally wants to look at “life through rose-tinted glasses,” then the ideal gift is this pair of polarized double mirror rose Lorna sunglasses ($415) by SALT. Designed in California and crafted in Japan.
For a Lighter Load
Classic while still maintaining a modern minimalist feel, this Arc shoulder bag ($690) from Lotuff is hand constructed with premium leather in New England. Understated American luxury at its finest.
For the One Who Is Always in Touch
Airelume by Taryn Toomey is a collection of fine jewelry made with touch stones and 14K gold. Toomey says that the peach moonstone used in this freeform necklace ($1,395) is known to have properties that “support the heart and stimulate the mind.” She encourages the wearer to “live, sweat and feel” in her pieces.
