We get it — shopping for your girlfriend is hard. You want to get her something she can actually use, rather than something that collects dust around her house (or worse, gets regifted). That’s why we’ve rounded up the best gifts for girlfriends, no matter what the occasion is. These gifts will become staples in her vanity, closet, kitchen, and elsewhere around her home, making you a serious MVP.
For example, if you’re trying to go ham on a gift for that big anniversary or milestone birthday, don’t be afraid to invest in that $700 Dyson vacuum she’s been eyeing or a $1,000+ custom Teressa Foglia hat–both obvious winners. On the flip side, there are some things you can buy that will be just as meaningful even though you didn’t spend a ton of money on it. A month-long Masterclass membership is only $15 and will give her access to countless cooking, interior design, and photography lessons, among others. A $65 pair of sunnies from Dezi will become her new everyday go-to shades. It really is the thought that counts, and your girlfriend will always be appreciative that you put effort into finding her the perfect present.
Whether it’s for a birthday, holiday, or a random “just because” present, skip the flowers this time and grab her one of these best gifts for girlfriends instead. They will be sure to put a smile on her face.

Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream
If your girlfriend has more mature or extremely dry skin, this face cream will become her new best friend.
