The best gifts are personal. But if your girlfriend isn’t the type to drop a lot of hints, finding the perfect gift — whether you’ve been together for three months or ten years — can prove challenging, especially following the holidays, when you might’ve used up your most thoughtful idea. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of 47 gifts guaranteed to please every type of girlfriend, from those who pride themselves on diligent letter writing to those who are obsessed with new releases. Scroll down for a mix of Strategist favorites and new stuff we just found, including practical things, things she didn’t know she needed, and even things she can share with you or with her dog. While almost all the things on this list are available on Amazon, we’ve found many of them elsewhere, too, for those who like to shop around.
