Buying gifts for your wife, girlfriend, or any special lady is difficult, especially during the holidays. Let’s be honest: guys can be bad listeners when girls give us subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) hints throughout the year about what they want us to get them.
That’s why we’ve taken the time to scour our favorite brands for the perfect gifts so that you can stop panicking and start mastering the art of gift-giving.
So, without further ado and in no particular order, here are our top picks:
Frank Darling Engagement Rings
It’s about time that you finally popped the question. If you’re looking for inspiration for the big moment, head over to Frank Darling to check out their new Starlette and Lunette collections of engagement rings.
The Starlette and Lunette collections draw their inspirations from, you guessed it, the stars and the moon. Think of you and your girlfriend as star-crossed lovers who found each other in this big, crazy universe. I give you permission to use that line to really make her swoon.
YETI Mugs and Tumblers
There’s a whole lot of hullabaloo lately about tumbler brands going viral on social media and becoming impossible to buy. Keeping up with the current trends is fine and dandy, but at what cost? Save yourself the headache (and some dough from ridiculous resale prices) and go with a brand like YETI that’s in stock and always reliable.
Whether your girlfriend is going for a run or tuning out the world with good tunes, make sure she’s equipped with the best headphones on the market with exceptional sound and noise-canceling capabilities.

Victrola Premier T1 Turntable System
Victrola’s mission is to create lifelong music memories, for everyone, and the Victrola Premier T1 Turntable System is the perfect vessel to achieve just that. Comprised of three parts—the turntable and two M1 stereo monitors—the T1 is an elite speaker system that is easy to use, sounds awesome, and looks great anywhere. Now you and your lady can remind your guests how music was intended to be heard on vinyl.
Because you can never have too many pairs of shades. Make sure she looks her best while she’s soaking up the sun.

Getting Cozy at Home
Winter is for curling up on the couch with a warm blanket and a good movie and ignoring the snow piling up outside your window. If your lady is like my fiancee, there is no limit on how many blankets one living room can hold (we have a basket). Throw on the perfect pair of slippers and you’ll be melting into the couch until spring.

Vuori Activewear and Leisurewear
Vuori’s premium performance apparel offers year-round comfort and style. IYKYK: Vuori is consistently one of the most comfortable clothing brands, especially if you’re all about being out and about, living your best active life possible. We’re sorta obsessed.
Socks and Underwear
Everyone needs more pairs of socks and underwear. And you’re at the age where you owe it to yourself and your girlfriend to make a serious upgrade in the name of comfort and style. Plus, you can always get yourself a matching pair because that’s just freaking adorable.
Watches and Jewelry
Because all that glitters is gold…and other shiny valuables that she’ll love.
