Yet, we’ve found a few items that go above and beyond your typical go-to’s (re: scented lotions and flowers). From chic wine glasses to high-end cocktail accessories, the gift of a good drink — and a good time — always make her happy. Or, if you really want to...MORE pamper her, consider something sensory like soothing oils or luxe candles, for a few moments of relaxation she’ll savor every second of. Either gifting route you go, you’re bound to show her your appreciation, which is the best gift of all.

  • Argus Le Slow Masticating Juicer

    If you’re going to get her the juicer she always wanted, you might as well make it the #1 best-seller. Unlike other juicers that operate at high speeds, this one is unique in the sense that it compresses at a much lower rate (65 RPM) to not disrupt the nutritional content of fruits and veggies. And since it has a wide, three inch shoot, it doesn’t require much chopping to get the contents ready. So drop in the entire apple or orange and get ready to enjoy a refreshing glass of the season’s most delicious produce.
