We all have that one person on our list — the one who is, in a word, impossible to shop for. They always have the latest and greatest of everything, making it a daunting task to buy them anything — especially if you’re concerned you’ll measure up to what they already own. But even a person who’s first to all the innovative skin-care trends or the most high-tech hot tools for hair needs to be spoiled once in a while. That’s why Apple 4 Ladies’ super-specific unique gift list for the hard-to-please perfectionist is focused on the luxurious, the coziest, and the most relaxing. Everyone needs a little bit of self-care, especially during the winter months.
Enter this helpful list of unique, exciting, and genuinely cool gifts that are sure to please even the pickiest people you know. Dare we say, you just might *impress* them with your gift this year.
ReDown Sleeping Bag Puffer Coat
Your outdoorsy friend who’s been hunting for the perfect winter coat is about to meet their match. Everlane’s latest innovation adds warmth without bulk, cocooning the body in a layer of down repurposed from recycled pillows and comforters, for outerwear that’s as conscious as it is cozy.
Paravel Weekender Bag
Designed to be the perfect size for a weekend getaway, this canvas cotton tote comes in three colors, and also happens to be fully customizable. (You can add an embroidered monogram in a square created by the leather accents for a practical gift the jet-setter in your life is sure to love.)
Moglea Hand-Painted Notebook
There’s nothing like a blank notebook to get those creative juices flowing, and the painterly cover on this Moglea number has our synapses positively firing. Even better, this is something your choosy artist friend definitely doesn’t have in their collection. Each notebook is hand-painted and bound at the brand’s studio on a farm in Audubon, Iowa, so no two are alike.
Find the hardest-working person on your list, the one with the longest hours and craziest work weeks, and gift them this Herbivore Cosmetics trio. The two body polishes and the body oil are formulated to slough away stress — along with stressed skin — at the end of a busy day, with calming scents that will turn any shower into an oasis of calming energy.
Framebridge Instagram Mini
Upload any photo from your Instagram feed, choose the frame and border mat, and ta-da, your favorite snapshot comes framed and ready to hang. We’re gonna bet that any of your Insta-obsessed friends will love this (just maybe make sure that they’ve liked the picture first, before that metric disappears forever).
Winc Wine Subscription
For the relative you always rely on to select the wine for the table at family dinners out, this subscription program is a no-brainer. They’ll fill out a simple tasting profile to give Winc a feel for their palate, and the company will deliver a range of bottles straight to their door, where they can be as adventurous or as comfortable as they like, with absolutely no judgment.
Vitruvi Porcelain Essential Oil Diffuser
You know that feeling when you walk into a home where nothing is out of place and every single item looks like art? This is a gift for the owners of those homes: a sleek, porcelain diffuser from Vitruvi that’s as beautiful as it is useful, sending a calming stream of steam subtly scented with essential oils throughout any living space.
SkinCeuticals Brightening Skin System
For the beauty lover in your life who’s always inquiring about your skin-care routine, show them what the fuss is all about with a four-piece set from SkinCeuticals. The Brightening Skin System is stacked with Best of Beauty-winning products that tackle unevenness and discoloration with hard-working ingredients like phloretin, ferulic acid, and retinol for radiance-boosting results.
