The Perfectly Curated Gift Guide

Finding the perfect gift is always difficult, no matter how strong our bonds are with others. Searching for a gift for someone can feel like seeking a needle in a haystack, especially because of how many things are for sale! Websites are flooded with thousands of items, but how do we pick the best things for our loved ones? This Gift Guide will surely help you out!


Gifts for young women are plentiful. This curated list is inspired by the latest trends as seen on Pinterest, TikTok, Instagram, and more. 

Laniege lip mask ($24)- Though a pricier item, the Laniege lip mask took over social media because of its delicious scent, vibrant color, and instantaneous results. In addition to the six primary products sold year-round, Laniege released two limited-edition holiday lip masks with peppermint and caramel apple flavors. Its small size makes it portable and convenient, fitting nicely in a purse. This beauty product will surely put a smile on the face of a young woman in your life! 

Skincare from The Ordinary ($27)- The Ordinary skincare products are a staple in the skincare world. Their products effectively hydrate, soothe, and clean the user’s skin. This holiday gift set includes The Ordinary’s Squalane Cleanser, Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, and Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA. These products work on all skin types and are free of sulfates, parabens, and phthalates; while also being vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free. Purchasing this set is significantly cheaper than purchasing each of the products separately, thus your wallet will thank you. 

Necklaces (Price varies depending on brand)- Here are a few brands that sell necklaces.

Pura Vida



Scroll through these websites if you are looking for cute necklaces for a young woman. Make sure you know what metal she wears: gold, silver, rose gold, white gold, etc.. A necklace can elevate an outfit, so you can always have a few. 

Shea Moisture Haircare ($13.99)- Shea Moisture has a Raw Shea Butter Deep Moisturizing Masque that is the perfect concoction for beautiful hair. The blend of sea kelp and argan oil conditions hair and restores damaged color-treated hair to its normal condition. This hair mask is also helpful for curly-headed girls. Don’t be surprised if the gal you gift this to has better locks than you!


Older women

Flower bouquet subscription ($69.99)- Tired of flowers dying all the time? Get a subscription for monthly flowers so the vases are never empty! For $69.99 (free shipping!), the older woman in your life (mother, grandmother, in-law!) can get beautiful, colorful, fresh flowers each month. This gift is excellent for plant lovers and makes for a beautiful decoration to make a house homey. 

Coffee machine (Price varies)- The women in our lives work hard to provide for us and others, what better way to thank them than by providing a machine that makes delicious, rich coffee? Poor-quality coffee machines often break and rust, thus a quality machine is a worthy investment. A coffee machine with a coffee grinder is especially helpful, saving time and space. The taste of coffee is of the utmost importance! Purchasing a quality coffee machine will put a smile on the receiver’s face and perhaps, they will treat you to a cup one day. 

Perfume Subscription ($153)- This perfume subscription allows the recipient to pick a perfume sample to be sent to their address each month. The website has thousands of colognes and perfumes, so it could be for both men and women. Descriptions of the perfumes are provided, too. Keynotes are outlined and there are thousands of recommendations from previous purchasers to help one decide which scent to choose. 


Younger Men

Bracelet (Etsy)- A durable leather bracelet that goes with any outfit is the ideal gift for a young man. You can even leave a personalized message on the inside. This way, the receiver of this gift can carry a bit of you everywhere they go! Etsy is a personalized gift hub for reasonably priced items. 


Graphic tee/hoodie (Price varies)- Stores such as PacSun and Abercrombie & Fitch have quality and stylish graphic tees and hoodies. Here are some examples! 




Mini cologne set: Purchasing a mini cologne set for a young man will allow him to experiment with scents and learn about his personal style. Ulta and Sephora have gift sets that are visually appealing, smell good, and are within a reasonable budget. 



Older Men

Sports jersey- The men in our lives love to watch sports, especially siding with a team, this is when merchandise comes in handy and allows you to wear a jersey for the team that you favor and allows them to be able to support their favorite team more. link

Watch: Are you tired of looking at your phone just to check the time? A good quality watch will help you solve that problem, especially in areas where there is a “no phone” policy. They come in many different styles from a more classy approach to a more casual approach depending on your preference. It saves you tons of time instead of looking at your phone for the time!

Wallet: A high-quality leather wallet will keep essentials organized. Leather wallets from Etsy have a price range from $10 to $30 and last for years to come. Credit cards, photos, coins, and cash can fit in a wallet, so he always remembers everything!

Here is a link to Etsy leather wallets. 

Sports channel subscription: A subscription to Hulu, Peacock, ESPN, and any sports channel will allow your favorite man to tune into their favorite sport and enjoy some free time. A subscription is also a significantly cheaper option to tune into games than tickets, which go for hundreds or thousands of dollars. 


As this gift guide is wrapped up, hopefully, you have found inspiration for the perfect presents for your loved ones. Whether the gift is heartfelt, cozy, useful, or personal, the art of gift-giving is a wonderful way to express appreciation for those important to you. Happy gifting!
