Cool Gift Ideas for Girlfriend | 1-10

1. Barefoot Dreams Women’s Pajama Set, $130: Oprah listed these as one of her favorite things for 2017, and I can totally see why. I ordered a few Barefoot Dreams products during the Nordstrom Sale, and they’re the softest things I own. Even though the price point is pretty high, their products are worth every penny. Available in black, graphite, indigo, pearl, and pink pewter. 

2. Longchamp Large Le Pliage Tote, $145: Every girl needs a Longchamp tote. They’re high of the “best gifts for girlfriend” list. The Le Pliage tote is stylish, timeless, and can fit a whole mess of goodies inside. I’ve had a navy and gray large Le Pliage tote for years, and I still use them all the time. Available in beige, black, curry, deep red, gunmetal, khaki, navy, peony, peacock, and gray. 

3. Women’s dv Cayla Over the Knee Boots, $50: No, this isn’t the $800+ pair of Stuart Weitzman boots… but the two styles sure do look a lot alike. Black over-the-knee boots are both a fall and winter closet staple. If she’s a trendy fashionista, she’ll wear these boots over and over again. 

4. Fitbit Special Edition Alta Wireless Heart Rate and Fitness Tracker, $180: Fitbits are all the rage, especially now that their designers have figured out how to make their bracelets fashionable. Available in an adorable pink rose gold and a more masculine black gunmetal. 

5. Chanel Books (Set of 3), $58: If she’s on Instagram, these books make the ultimate photo prop. Plus, they’re great coffee table looks and are fun to skim through for style inspo. 

6. Chloe Faye Look Alike Crossbody Purse, $85: Not everybody has $2,000 to spend on a Chloe Faye handbag. I certainly don’t. I bought this Chloe Faye look alike bag in caramel for myself, and it was one of my favorite purchases of 2017. It’s super versatile, and it looks just like the real designer deal. Available in two sizes (the larger is $85, the smaller is $50) and in black, caramel, and gray. You can also check out my list of best Chloe look alike bags for more cute gift ideas for girlfriend.

8. Sugarfina Sparkling Holiday 3-Piece Candy Bento Box, $28: Sugarfina makes the most delicious (and Instagram-friendly) gummies. I mean, who doesn’t want champagne-flavored pastel gummy bears? Gifting one box of gummies can be kind of awkward, so these candy bento boxes are ideal for holiday occasions. 

9. 4-Piece Pink Agate Coaster Set, $76: Affordable agate coasters have become super popular with home decor enthusiasts. They’re absolutely lovely, and they add a natural appeal to anyone’s bar cart or coffee table. Available in pink, purple, and blue. 

10. Monogram Passport Case & Luggage Tag, $73: If she’s a sophisticated jet setter, she’ll love this monogrammed passport case and luggage tag set from Cathy’s Concepts. Available in a variety of colors.
