Whether it's a cold winter night or just a lazy Saturday afternoon, there's something inherently relaxing about lounging around in a cozy robe. Parachute's waffle robe is made of 100 percent Turkish cotton to keep her warm on cold nights, but not overly heated on warmer days. This style is available in three neutral colors and has a slightly oversized, spa-like fit.
Whether she is new to gardening or is looking to expand an existing indoor garden, these wax-coated planters make the perfect gift. The adorable containers are made from recycled paper, so all she has to do is plant the seeds and add water! Because the planters are water-tight, she can perch them on a windowsill or table without worrying about spills.
Amazon's Echo Dot is the definition of small (less than 4-inches tall and wide), but mighty. The speaker is easy to connect and has crisp audio quality. Play music, listen to the news, or even set reminders. Plus, it can control other smart home devices like the thermostat or lights.
Anything personalized truly shows you put thought into a gift. This Etsy necklace is customized and surprisingly doesn't cost a ton. The chain length can vary between 14 to 20 inches and you can select silver, gold, or rose gold. Up to 15 letters can be added, so go with her initials, full name, or even a cute nickname.
For a cozy present she’ll turn to again and again, you can't go wrong with this heated throw blanket from Sunbeam. Soft and soothing, it’s reversible, with RoyalMink on one side and sherpa on the other, and there are three heat settings, so she can adjust the temperature as needed. It measures 50 x 60-inches and is machine washable and dryer safe.
"Although some polyester blankets with a faux fur texture tend to deteriorate when washed, this washer- and dryer-safe throw kept its shape, color, and texture. It was just as soft (and possibly even a bit fluffier) after we gave it a good spin in the dryer."—Nina Ruggiero, Product Tester
Digital photos tend to just stay on a camera roll, but this sweet gift from Minted makes it easy to turn treasured pictures into wall art. The heart-shaped print features a collage of photos.

Here's how to take a nostalgic game, but turn it glam. Instead of the basic hard plastic first-to-score-four game, this board is made of lucite. It includes 42 chips and the board actually folds flat to securely hold all of the pieces.
As useful as diffusers can be, some of them aren't the prettiest. But Vitruvi's porcelain diffuser doesn't fall into that category. It has a sleek design that won't take up valuable space on her nightstand or dresser, and It's available in four modern colors. Just a few drops of her favorite essential oil and she'll feel relaxed in no time.
Indulging in self-care is something every woman should do, at least once in a while.

After sloughing away dry skin with the body polish, she can lock in moisture with the coconut oil and cocoa butter whipped soufflé.
You can’t go wrong with this cozy pajama set from L.L. Bean. Perfect for lounging in front of a fire or working from home, she’s going to want to wear these pajamas all winter long.

Slippers might seem like a fairly common gift, but don't overlook how useful they can be. This is especially true if you gift her a pair of Emu Australia's super-soft slippers. The sheepskin lining will keep her feet warm in the winter, but the criss-cross design still lets her toes breathe. Plus, she can wear them outside as well as inside thanks to the durable sole.
Some gifts are useful and practical, while others are just downright funny. This coloring book falls into both categories.
