This holiday season, whether you’re shopping for your wife, sister, daughter, girlfriend or best friend, the women in your life deserve something extra special.

Rather than rely on the same old bottle of wine and gift card you do every year (no offence, we still love it), show your appreciation with something a little more unique.

Whether you’re following a strict budget or have a little financial leeway, these gift ideas pack a serious punch. From a best-selling adult toy dubbed “God’s gift to women” to holy grail skincare goodies, these are the 35 best Christmas gifts for women in 2023.
