Gift Guide for the Woman Who ‘Doesn’t Need Anything’

Last Updated on November 1, 2020 by Jody Halsted

Do you have a ‘hard to buy for’ woman on your gift list?

Or maybe you ARE that woman, who when asked what they want for {insert gift giving event here} replies, “I really don’t need anything”.

I am totally this woman. In fact, this gift guide was the most difficult for me to write. Everything that crossed my mind sounded… off. I questioned myself constantly.

‘Sure, these are things I like and would appreciate, but are they gifts that would make other women happy?’

Gads, self doubt is a killer. Funnily enough, I don’t doubt the gifts I give others.

Gift Giving is an Art Form

I consider myself an exceptional gift giver. I take notes through the year when my loved ones show an interest in something. I pay attention to their likes & dislikes. And I spend time searching for the perfect gifts. The things that will fit their personality, make them laugh, or just bring a smile to their face.

But not everyone is quite so observant. Hence, the need for a gift guide. Little tips to make your gift giving easier.

Gift Ideas for the Women in Your Life

If you’re struggling with gift giving this year, I’ve created a gift guide for the woman who ‘doesn’t need anything’. These are (mostly) things I use and love, along with a few ideas that I think many women would enjoy – even though they will likely tell you it’s not necessary.

Gifts for the Woman Who Works from Home

With more people working from home it’s important to have a workspace that is comfortable, functional, and appealing to be in. These are products I can’t be without in my office space.

VariDesk Stand Up Desk

I’ve had my VariDesk for nearly 4 years, and it has been one of the best investments I have ever made. Not only does it keep me from sitting for hours, but it helps my overall posture and well-being. I even find that I think more clearly when I stand.

my VariDesk

My standing desk is a two monitor version desktop converter, but VariDesk has dozens of options including full standing desks, monitor arms, and all the accessories you need to complete your workspace.


5 Tier Corner Shelf

Because my desk is in a corner I love this shelf. Available in 20 finishes it can match any office decor.

Words to Live By Calendar

I love the quips, inspiration, and simple wisdoms of this calendar.

Coffee (or Tea) Subscription

Whether it’s a boost in the morning or a pick-me-up in the afternoon, a hot beverage is always a good idea.

Gifts for the Woman Who Deserves Some Pampering

This is actually pretty easy. Call your wife’s best friend or sister and ask what salon she goes to. Then call the salon and make a spa appointment. Massage, pedicure, facial… Whatever sounds extravagant.

No leads? Tuck a Spa Finder gift card in her stocking. Spas, gyms, and exercise studios across the country accept these gift cards. It’s easy to do a search before you buy to find locations near you!

For pampering at home these are a few of my favorite things. Tip: the key to these gifts is giving her the time to enjoy them. Alone. With no interruption!

Bath Bombs

These bath bombs are handmade in the USA, designed to moisturize the skin and promote relaxation.

Bath Caddy

Made of bamboo and adjustable to fit a variety of bathtubs. For bonus pints pair with bubble bath, a bottle of wine, and a bath tub pillow!

Waterproof Kindle

I love to relax and red in the tub. The Kindle Paperwhite is now waterproof and includes a built in light so the bathroom doesn’t have to be brightly lit to read. Pair this with Kindle Unlimited for a never-ending supply of books!

Bath Pillow

I love this bath pillow because it doesn’t slip and supports both my head and neck. 8 anti-slip suction cups keep it in place.

Subscription Boxes

Why give one gift when you can keep the surprise going? There is a subscription box for everyone… these are a few that I love.
