As we noted in our mega gift guide for every kind of mom, not all women like the same things. Some are into cashmere sweatpants. Others like a pair of new show shoes. Bearing that in mind, we’ve attempted to find Valentine’s Day gifts for several dozen specific female archetypes that we hope will at least spark some ideas. All of the items below are on Amazon, which means they’ll get here fast. (And check out our guide to Valentine’s Day Gifts for Every Type of Man.)
For the woman who has Zoom meetings back-to-back
If she has been considering buying a ring light for more flattering Zoom-call illumination, give her this TaoTronics desk lamp instead. According to Strategist writer Jordan Bowman, it “doesn’t just work as great makeshift ring light; the seven brightness settings and five color modes will solve pretty much every lighting problem you might have.”
For the woman who needs some help falling asleep
For the woman who needs a little help waking up
For the woman with parched skin
She’ll appreciate this African shea butter, which is a favorite of Princess Nokia. “African shea butter is a great moisturizing agent that a lot of Caribbean and Black people use. It’s something I grew up with in Harlem,” she told us when we asked about the things she can’t live without.
For the woman who wears her heart … on her sock
For the woman who has a varied cocktail repertoire
For the woman who starts her day with a brisk walk
For the woman who hates watching her bouquets wilt
This DIY miniature bonsai kit comes with soil disks, biodegradable growing pots, seeds for four different kinds of bonsai trees, and a guide that will help her get everything set up.
For the woman who loves a clean slice
For the woman who prefers her plants “self-sufficient”
She’ll never have to worry about forgetting to water this artificial monstera (which looks just like the real deal).
For the woman who always sends a thank-you note
If she loves to send a handwritten note, she’ll appreciate this box of floral watercolor notecards — which, in a pinch, could be used as a birthday card, too.
For the woman who’s ready to hit the (snowy) trails
If she already has cross-country skis and/or snowshoes, a fresh pair of trekking poles would be a useful addition to her snow day supply.
For the woman who wears lipstick … even under her mask
For the woman with celestial interests
It’s always a full moon with this bas-relief lamp.
