Updated April 29, 2024: This article on the best gifts for wives was updated with additional gift ideas after a round of product testing ahead of Mother’s Day. Our editors are currently testing more products for consideration in this guide to the best gift for wives of 2024.

Avoid the annual head scratch when you get to the leading lady in your life on your shopping list: We’ve rounded up the best gifts for your wife that’ll make it easy for you to woo her for Mother’s Day, your anniversary, her birthday, or just because.

When you’re brainstorming the best gifts for women, a few categories probably come to mind. There’s romantic gifts for her, like a flower delivery or a luxury candle; wellness gifts, such as a spa gift basket or a sauna blanket; and classic luxury gifts, like designer handbags and minimalist jewelry.

You can’t go wrong with any of those gifts for your wife, of course. But with so many occasions to treat her to a thoughtful, unique gift, you’ll want to get creative. Ponder her passions and what she does in her day-to-day. If your wife’s head over heels for your rescue puppy, she’ll love a dog DNA test; if your wife is always topping up her cup of coffee, a bean subscription will fuel her in more ways than one. Is she a mom-to-be? A push present is in order — you can’t go wrong with a locket necklace. These creative gift ideas for wives will show you put extra thought into commemorating what you’re celebrating.

Once you’ve settled on a great gift for your wife, the next step is making sure it arrives on time for the special day. Retailers like Amazon, Nordstrom, and Shopbop guarantee delivery within a certain time frame, ensuring you’ll have the surprise ready to go on the special day.

To make your search simple, we’ve perused top retailers and independent brands for the best gift ideas for wives. Review our list of the top gifts for wives that are universally loved and in high demand, as well as hidden gem that’ll make her smile. Ahead, gifts for wives that will earn you the ‘Spouse of the Year’ award on her birthday, this Mother’s Day, or any special occasion.

Editor testing and review notes: “For hydrated, plump skin and lips, this set has it all. The Dewy Cream is a luxurious day and night cream for dry and combination skin types, while oily types can use it as a restorative night cream — you’ll be obsessed with the lush texture. The Kissu lip mask is peerless for fighting chapped lips; it goes on like a rich gel that prevents your lips from getting dry throughout the day. It also imparts mega shine.”

Ulta Top-Quality Store Badge on Google: 4.8/5 stars
Sephora Top-Quality Store Badge on Google: 4.8/5 stars

The Dior Addict Lip Glow Balm is a bestselling lip balm for a reason — it delivers plumping moisture and gorgeous sheer colors for everyday wear. Pro tip: Go with Pink if she has fair skin, Rosewood for olive skin tones, or Berry for deep skin tones.

Editor testing and review notes: “I always keep one of Dior’s lip balms in my everyday bag — it’s so softening and imparts a subtle-but-there wash of color. It makes a great gift, too; I pop them in stockings around the holidays and love to tie a little bow on the pretty packaging as a small birthday gift that’s always received with smiles.”

Venus Et Fleur Top-Quality Store Badge on Google: 5.0/5 stars

Flower delivery services are one way to woo her on Mother’s Day; but Venus Et Fleur’s bouquets will outlast the freshest stems. Before they’re packaged in a keepsake hatbox, the blooms undergo a special preservation process that keeps looking — and smelling — like they’re still in the garden for a full year. This special-edition box will look stunning on her vanity.

Editor testing and review notes: “You won’t believe how amazing Venus et Fleur’s flowers smell. Despite the fact that they’re preserved, the flowers smell freshly picked for a full two weeks and last way longer (mine have held on for over a year). I keep this small arrangement on my desk for a pop of color.”

Known for their ability to keep her favorite sip ice-cold all day, it’ll be a breeze for her to hit her daily hydration goal with this in tow. It’s such a popular gift that it often sells out, so consider yourself lucky to get your hands on this top gift for wives.

Editor testing and review notes: “My Stanley cup comes everywhere with me — as someone who’s always thirsty, this tumbler comes in clutch for its massive capacity and its ability to keep my water chilled for a full 24 hours (or more, if you stock up on ice). I love the slick design and that it fits in car cup holders.”

This set also includes an activating serum for max benefits.

Editor testing and review notes: “After hearing about so many celebs using Solawave’s skin care tool for red carpet skin prep, I had to get my hands on it. I love that this facial massager is no bigger than a marker for travel and that it’s multitasking — I use the therapeutic warmth setting to massage my face oil on at night and the LED setting to brighten my eyes in the morning.”

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick

Nordstrom Top-Quality Store Badge on Google: 4.6/5 stars

Our editors test hundreds of lipsticks in a year and Charlotte Tilbury’s formulas rank high on our lists of the best pink lipsticks and the best nude lipsticks for everyday wear — they’re hydrating, long-wearing, and deliver incredible color payoff that doesn’t budge. Pillow Talk is the brand’s most universally flattering shade, so go with that option if you’re on the fence.

Editor testing and review notes: “I’ve worn Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk lipstick for years; it’s my go-to whenever I know I’ll be taking pictures. The neutral pink enhances the look of my natural lip color with a gorgeous non-drying matte finish, and you can easily build it up for more intensity. I wore it on my wedding day, but also swipe it on for casual occasions, like a weekend brunch.”

Tata Harper is known for creating luxurious skin care products that are primarily powered by plant-derived ingredients and manufactured in small batches for supreme quality. The Illuminating Moisturizer is a great gift for wives who want an instant glow up — the face cream includes hyaluronic acid to plump skin, plus diamond dust that gives her skin a gorgeous sheen.

Editor testing and review notes: “I have dry skin, so I’m always looking for ways to make my dull skin look hydrated and glowy. This moisturizer delivers that in spades, making me look well-rested and dewy. It gives my skin a filter-like effect that’s gorgeous with or without makeup on top.”

Irene Forte Pistachio Face Oil

Irene Forte Top-Quality Store Badge on Google: 5.0/5 stars

Irene Forte’s Pistachio Face Oil leaves other face oils in the dust — this luxurious skin care product includes a special ingredient called phytomelatonin that encourages skin renewal for brighter, firmer, bouncier skin. The formula also features omega-rich pistachio oil harvested on an organic farm in Sicily. If a European vacation isn’t in the cards this summer, consider this face oil as a worthy stand-in her skin will soak up.

Editor testing and review notes: “I love using this oil for a facial massage before bed — it’s emollient without feeling greasy, and I can count on it to make my skin look radiant by the time I wake up. It has a subtle fragrance that comes from all the plant-based ingredients in the formula, which helps me wind down as it’s become part of my evening routine.”

Cuyana Mini Linea Bucket Bag in Stone

Cuyana Top-Quality Store Badge on Google: 4.4/5 stars

One thing her bag rotation is missing? A chic bucket bag she can tote to work, on everyday errands, or for a night out with her BFFs. We love Cuyana’s Mini Linea Bucket Bag for its convenient straps — one allows her to hold it as a top-handle bag, while the other functions as a crossbody. The pebbled leather looks luxurious, but it’s surprisingly durable.

Editor testing and review notes: “I love how minimal and petite this bag looks despite how much it can hold. It’s great for those who are hopping on the double bag trend: I’ll carry my essentials — keys, wallet, phone, and makeup pouch — in this bag with a canvas tote to house bigger items, like my laptop and water bottle.”

Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler and Dryer in Ceramic Pink and Rose Gold

Dyson Top-Quality Store Badge on Google: 3.4/5 stars

Yes, it’s expensive. Yes, your wife needs it. The Dyson Airwrap is considered a magic wand in the realm of hair styling tools for its ability to add waves, smooth frizz, tame flyaways, and create curls without damaging hair. It’s notorious for selling out, and we expect this limited-edition pink and gold colorway to fly off the virtual shelves.

Editor testing and review notes: “The Dyson Airwrap has been my go-to hair tool for over four years, and I’m happy to report that despite bleaching my hair and regularly heat styling it, I’m experiencing way less breakage than I did with previous tools. It’s simple to use for a variety of hair looks — it straightens, curls, and volumizes my hair, depending on the attachment I click in.”

These top gifts for wives are newly available with intricate, flower-covered initial embroidery that’s begging to be wrapped up for Mother’s Day gifting.

Editor testing and review notes: “I always travel with my Slip silk pillowcase — as someone with hair that’s prone to tangling, I rely on it to for snag-free strands when I brush my hair in the morning. I also notice fewer creases on my skin when I wake up, which is a feat for a side sleeper like myself.”

Editor testing and review notes: “Shark’s FlexStyle is in a league of its own; there’s no other tool on the market that works as well as a multipurpose styler as it does a classic hair dryer. The only downside to this tool is potential snagging of hair where the attachments meet the nozzle, and the weight that some of the attachments add to the device.”

Seenlast Candle Warmer

Amazon Top-Quality Store Badge on Google: 4.5/5 stars

This candle gift is genius for the ladies who love to keep a candle burning all day long. Rather than burning from the wick, this tool warms the wax to waft the candle’s scent throughout your home. Not only is it a safer option for those with children and pets; it’s also a way to make her luxury candles last longer, as the warmer burns through the wax slower than a lighted wick.

The Different Kinds of Gifts for Wives

  • Mother’s Day gifts for your wife: You can go with classic gifts like flowers, cozy Amazon slippers, or a pair of hoop earrings; or get creative with a necklace featuring the first letter of your child’s name. If she’s absolutely spent, send her off for a massage by giving her a gift card to the spa.
  • Luxury gifts for your wife: Great for special occasions like her 40th, 50th birthday, or 60th birthday, these investment items will always remind her of the milestone. Designer tote bags are an option, as are classic jewelry pieces like diamond earrings.
  • Romantic gifts for your wife: Show her some love with gifts that tug on her heartstrings. Go with a picture frame with a photo from your wedding day or an heirloom-worthy vase full of fresh flowers. If you want something on the sexy side, you can’t go wrong with lacy black lingerie.
  • Creative gifts for your wife: Thanks to retailers like Uncommon Goods and Etsy, it’s easy to order a personalized present online. You can spend hours scrolling through options, but items like a custom notebook, an illustration of your family, or a monogrammed cutting board are dependable options.
  • Anniversary gifts for your wife: Lucky for you, anniversary gifts have traditional framework you can play into, like paper for your first anniversary, wood for your fifth, and crystal for your fifteenth. You can, of course, also surprise her with something more modern, like a pair of hoop earrings as a five-, 10-, or 20-year anniversary gift for your wife.
  • Push presents: These post-delivery gifts are a must for new moms. Jewelry is a go-to choice; personalize a necklace with the baby’s birthday or birthstone. If you’re opting for something self care-oriented, go with a spa gift, like a plush bathrobe she can nestle in with your newborn.
