As we noted in our mega gift guide for every kind of mom, not all women like the same things. Some are into fuzzy, pink handcuffs. Others like three-pound gummy worms. 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 with a vinyl collection
For the woman who puts on WNYC every morning
For the woman who likes chocolate
For the woman who likes chocolate and cats
For the woman who prefers something spicy
A pound o’ red hots will not disappoint.
For the woman who hates watching her bouquets wilt
A bonsai tree that will outlive you both.
For the woman who hydrates her plants with a water glass
Get her a proper watering can, like this mini version of the status-y Haws.
For the woman who prefers her plants abstract
A lovely book of plant drawings that will, also, last much longer than a bouquet.
For the woman with celestial interests
It’s always a full moon with this bas-relief lamp.
For the woman who loves getting her feet rubbed
If she stands on her feet all day, or if she just deserves to be pampered, this is one of the best-reviewed (and heated) foot massagers on Amazon. If you think she might prefer more of a foot-spa situation, try this one.
For the woman who likes to keep loved ones close to her heart
For the woman who’s always losing her sunglasses
Instagram-friendly-but-cheap sunglasses she won’t be sad if (or when) they get lost in the back of the cab.
For the woman with crummy water pressure
An extremely well-reviewed showerhead that can make a dribble more like a downpour. Just remember this gift should include installation.
For the woman who loves to lounge
You really can’t beat a pair of cashmere sweatpants.
For the woman who always forgets to finish her coffee
For the woman who wants to channel Patricia Arquette
For the woman who’s a status-candle aficionado
For the woman who likes a luxe shower
For the woman who shops at Dimes Market
For the woman who’s fickle about wall art
For the woman who’s into no-makeup-makeup
For the woman who’s moved on from LaCroix
For the woman who always wants to jet off to Paris
A book chronicling the history of the Seine by former New York Times Paris bureau chief Elaine Sciolino, who also happens to have great taste in comfortable black flats.
