Best for Home Cooks: Dining In: Highly Cookable Recipes
When you gift someone a cookbook, it can seem like you’re just adding to the clutter on their bookshelf, but Dining In has recipes someone would actually want to make. And, more importantly, they’re recipes amateur cooks can make. The recipes rely on honest ingredients that novice cooks can recognize. And there are foolproof techniques for adding bold flavors that anyone should add to their cooking repertoire. Have you ever thought to slather a chicken in anchovy butter? You will now. Give this book to someone that likes to tinker in the kitchen and needs to spice up a boring weeknight dinner routine.

Best Personalized: Argento Vivo Personalized Script Ring
It’s not often that you get an 18k gold-plated ring custom made for you for less than $100. This ring features a gold band with a word of your choice—anything with four to 12 letters—written in script. Pick a word that inspires her or choose something from an inside joke between the two of you. And if she’s a mom (or has a fur baby) put their name on the ring to give her a smile every time she looks down at her hand. It’s a beautiful piece of jewelry with endless ways to personalize it.

Best Tech: Helsinki High Resolution Bluetooth Speaker
This minimalistic, portable speaker looks more like a chic accessory than something that produces high-quality sound—but it's both.

The speaker connects to a smartphone and other devices via Bluetooth to play music anywhere. Give it to your favorite music lover so she can take it on the go to the park or to a friend’s house. The fabric is water repellant, which helps this light speaker transition seamlessly from indoors to outside. Plus, its crystal-clear sound means this speaker is more than just looks.Continue to 5 of 8 below.

Best for Animal Lovers: Silver Cat Jewelry Rack and Tray
Cat ladies can still have style. Give this feline-focused jewelry tray to the cat-obsessed woman in your life. The ceramic dish is the perfect spot for her to store her rings, necklaces and bracelets when she’s not using them. The silver cat in the center does more than look cute, it serves as a rack (especially the tail) that she can slip her rings and chains onto. The dish looks great on a vanity or next to the sink in the bathroom.

Best Book: Good Days Start with Gratitude
Before your friend thinks that you’re implying she’s a grump by getting her this gratitude journal, emphasize that everyone can benefit from appreciating the small things in life. In the journal, there’s an inspirational quote for each week, three spots to write what she’s thankful for each day and a weekly checkpoint that helps her review the past seven days. It might sound a bit cheesy, but she’ll feel great each morning if she starts by writing in this journal rather than focusing on how she doesn’t want to go to work.

Best for the Chronically Cold: Mermaid Tail Blanket
You’re guaranteed to know someone who’s always cold, even in the summer. Instead of gifting her a boring sweater (you’re not her grandma) or a plain throw, get her this cool mermaid tail blanket. It has two benefits: Her legs will stay close together so she’ll always be warm and she’ll get to play out her childhood fantasies of becoming a mermaid. The blanket is crocheted in a tight stitch to keep the warmth in and it comes in eight different colors. Bonus: this kit also includes a silver mermaid necklace and a travel bag so she can take the blanket with her on a plane or a trip.
