Best Gifts for Wives

There’s arguably no one more important on your shopping list than your wife. And there are definitely a few important things to consider when choosing something that’s special enough for someone so special in your life. Obviously you want it to be something she’ll love, though perhaps wouldn’t treat herself to, and something she’ll actually use or wear. Jewelry is always great (it’s not cliche, it’s classic), but going in the direction of beauty and wellness is also a great move. One good tip: Think about what she does tend to buy for herself, and use that as a jumping off point. It doesn’t have to be exactly the same thing, but something adjacent to or in the same vein is sure to please. And if you do go the jewelry route, opting for a personalized or customized piece is a nice way to show you’ve put a little extra thought into your purchase.

This five-in-one formula does what it says it will; it gives the skin a natural, dewy coverage, protects against sunlight, blue light, and pollution, and hydrates the skin.” —Dacy Knight
