Yes, it is officially that time of year. Of course we’re talking about the always dreaded Valentine’s Day.
This year shopping is totally different. You used to spend most of your day walking through the mall looking for that special gift for her (hello girlfriend!) but usually come out with nothing except an empty tank of gas after driving around the parking lot for 74 minutes. But this year (thanks Coronavirus) most of us are staying home, practicing social distancing, and just doing everything online. Like, everything.
Due to the times we’re living in, while there really are a ton of really great ideas out there for all the women in your life, this year it’s all about ideas that hit popular themes like:
- Things she can use to keep busy at home.
- Ways to make her “work from home” life much more efficient (and fun).
- All the the must-haves to help her stay comfy, yet chic AF in her loungewear (that she’s wearing 24/7).
- Things to help her chill the heck out because we are all on edge pretty much all day long.
And, since times are totally different more of us are on a budget this year. Most shoppers are looking to spend less than $100 this season but, don’t worry, there are still a ton of great options out there. And, remember, it’s not about the amount you spend. What matters is that you get her something on time!
From the latest on trend perfume that she’ll love you for (finally) or the latest tech gift that’ll make her life easier, we’ve got you covered. So whether you’re looking for something unique for your wife, your girlfriend, or practically any of the women on your list, shop some of the best gift ideas for her (so far) in 2021 that she actually wants (we hope)!

I was about to give up on my dreams when I started Hans Zimmer’s class. It was like someone gave me a slap in the face. He said, are you wasting your life or are you not wasting your life? And that’s when I realized I don’t want to waste another minute of it.”
