Getting the right gift for your wife can be anxiety-producing no matter how long you’ve been together. After 20 years of wedded bliss, you might be all out of ideas, or maybe you’re stumped about what to buy your new bride after she got everything she wanted on your registry. If you’re unsure of what to get your best gal, don’t panic — below, we’ve put together a list of 37 gifts for practically every type of wife, which includes items recommended by interesting people like Danielle Brooks and Lisa Brennan-Jobs, as well as stuff we love ourselves. All of the things are also available on Amazon, meaning they’re almost certain to arrive in time even if you wait till the last minute to decide.

For the wife who thinks breakfast is the most important meal of the day
