The Hip-Hop Queens Oracle Deck
Which queens reign supreme? This tarot card deck is designed for those people who are more invested in watching Queen B perform than waking up early for the next British royal wedding. This incredibly illustrated deck of cards features some of the most important figures in Hip-Hop across generations, from Lil’ Kim to Cardi B, to guide the user on their spiritual journey.
Sideways Large Initial Necklace 18k Gold Plated
We’ve seen these sideways initial necklaces at a slew of high-end jewelry shops recently, but this affordable dupe could give those necklaces a run for their money. Or at least help save you a bunch of money! This simple necklace could be a wonderful small gift to show your friends that you’re just as trendy and cool as they are!
Custom Personalized Photo Pet Face Socks
We have to admit that we have a pair of these socks with our dog’s face on them, and no article of clothing could ever come close to that level of cuteness. If you know any other ladies who are ridiculously obsessed with their pets, then they’ll probably also love these customizable socks!
They come in a ton of different colors so you can choose whichever hue best complements their pet’s fur.
Freddie Mercury Secular Saint Candle
Not all candles are created equal. Especially not when this candle has Freddie Mercury’s face on it and most other candles sadly do not. This secular saint candle would make a whimsical addition to any Queen-loving lady’s home decor and could definitely be a conversation starter!
COSRX Acne Pimple Patch
The only thing we don’t like about these pimple patches is they weren’t available when we were insecure teenagers! Seriously, adult acne is not fun, but these nifty little patches can really save the day.
We often use these to prevent us from picking or popping any of our spots or to clean out any leftover gunk and expedite the healing process after we do pick. If we could give these 100 stars, we would.
The Golden Girls: Forever Golden
Sadly, the four fabulous actresses who starred in The Golden Girls have all passed on now, leaving a massive, Rose-sized hole in our hearts. If you know someone who is as man-crazy as Blanche or as witty as Sophia, they’re sure to love this set of books. Each book is set up as an autobiography of one of the four lovely ladies, with information gleaned across the episodes.
Rolling Tray “Sun Face in Clouds”
If there is one thing we know to be true, it’s that women love to put their stuff in or on other stuff to make it feel more organized. This cute little tray could be the perfect home for jewelry, hair ties, crystals, or other little knickknacks. Alternatively, the recipient could also use it for its intended purposes, as a rolling tray for cannabis or tobacco products.
Indoor Electric Stainless Steel S'mores Maker
Campfire nostalgia just reached a whole new level with this nifty gadget that brings a childhood favorite indoors. S’mores are an elite dessert, and we’re tired of everyone glossing over them.
If you have any wiggle room left in your budget, you could consider picking up some s’mores accouterments! We like to get creative with our s’mores by using peanut butter cups, Nutella, and other fun candies instead of just plain chocolate bars.
Luxury Satin Pillowcase for Hair
A satin pillowcase is an accessible touch of luxury that every woman would benefit from. According to this article, satin pillowcases can help prevent frizz, minimize breakage, prevent tangles, prevent sleep wrinkles, and more!
Many women with curly hair, in particular, swear by satin or silk pillowcases. We prefer satin because you can throw it in the wash like a regular cotton pillowcase, making it much easier to maintain than silk.
Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker with Permanent Filter
Not only is this coffee maker a budget-friendly alternative to many other models on the market, it also looks super chic, perfect for those women who like to post about their morning coffee grind.
This aesthetically pleasing appliance is also a wonderful choice for those individuals trying to be more eco-conscious. It has a built-in filter, so the recipient never has to worry about the waste or running out of coffee filters or those coffee pods ever again.

Audrey, is that you? Anyone obsessed with Breakfast at Tiffany’s will (hopefully) immediately recognize this eye mask. This adorable movie classic replica is a fun gift for any woman who loves old Hollywood films or the chic and refined stylings of Audrey Hepburn.
Mini Portable Disposable Travel Paper Soap Sheets
We really did try to make soap sheets ourselves, but these are so cute and cheap you shouldn’t bother trying to DIY. These convenient sudsy sheets are a useful and practical gift for women who travel frequently, have kids who tend to get messy (so all kids), or can’t stand public restrooms that lack soap.
Mexican Hot Chocolate
Are you looking for cheap gift ideas for women who you might not know that well? It can be challenging to pick out gifts when you aren’t very familiar with someone’s particular tastes.

Large Cotton Rope Basket
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, women enjoy aesthetically pleasing organization containers. This large cotton rope basket could be used for so many things, like a cute place to store extra blankets in the living room, a mini laundry hamper in the bathroom, or a pretty cover for those ugly plant pots. It comes in a ton of different colors to match the recipient’s taste in home decor.
Modern Aesthetic Eyes Canvas Bag
Whether they need a way to shlep their books across campus or an easy way to carry all their great produce from the farmer’s market, this canvas bag could be a tote-al win. It comes in nine prints that hit on a variety of interests and styles, like yoga, dogs, and travel. We’re quite partial to the sun and moon nature design, but we’ll leave the final decisions up to you!
Macrame Wall Hanging Plant Decor Shelf
You could potentially make this shelf yourself. However, you might end up spending more on supplies than if you just purchased this adorable pre-made one. This small shelf would make an adorable accent piece for a woman with bohemian-inspired taste.
It could make a convenient entryway table for keys and essentials or a cute place to display the recipient’s favorite plants or treasured knickknacks.
Anker Portable Charger
Having a dead phone battery can sometimes feel like you’re stranded in the middle of the ocean, especially if you’re someone who depends on their phone for the essentials like transportation and making payments. This portable charger is an excellent, practical gift for women who can’t afford to lose their phone juice.
Trifold Vanity Mirror With LED Lights
Not every house, apartment, or bathroom is equipped with the bright but soft lighting to make getting groomed and ready easy. This vanity mirror could be an easy way to turn any surface into a professional makeup stand. The mirror has adjustable LED lights and three times zoom magnification, so the recipient will never leave the house with smudged eyeliner ever again.

Hanging Travel Toiletry Bag
Hanging toiletry bags are a wonderful choice for women who frequently travel, whether that is across town to their significant other’s house or across the country for a high-stakes business meeting.
No matter where they go, bathroom counter space is in high demand and limited supply. This hanging bag allows the user to see and access all of their essentials without placing their bag down on a questionably clean bathroom counter.
Women’s Winter Beanie Hat
As much as we hate it, cold weather does happen. When it’s time to bust out your boots and put away your sandals, it could also be time to think about all the winter holidays coming up. This luxurious beanie is lined with thick fleece so it can stand up to the most frigid of winter weather, while the adorable pom keeps the user looking chic and stylish.

This item is half gift, half challenge, and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

We prefer our elephants out of the ring and in the wild, but we’ll have to make an exception for this adorable elephant ring dish.
