41 Of The Best Gift Baskets For Women Ft Via Amazon.comVIA MERCHANT

The hardest part of gift-giving is zeroing in on the exact perfect item. Do they already have this? Is this what they want? Will they use it, or will this be tossed in a closet? That’s why, in my humble opinion, gift baskets are some of the best presents you can send—as long as it’s tailored to the person receiving it.

“A good gift is not dictated by the cost or size, but rather, the genuine thought that goes into it,” Elizabeth Noel Jones, founder of GiftMeChic, told us.

We dug into gift basket ideas for women, whether you’re shopping for new moms, moms who’ve been in the game for a while and desperately need an at-home spa day, college students living off of ramen, grandmas who love to garden or at-home chefs.

All of our selections contain a variety of items, with a range of themes, preferences and prices. There’s decadent, traditional gift baskets and gift boxes from beloved brands, so there’s something to suit everyone’s taste, lifestyle and hobbies. And don’t forget a note!

“It’s important to take a few minutes to think about the person you are gifting and their likes, dislikes, hobbies, lifestyle, aesthetic and taste,” explains Jones. “Adding to this, a handwritten note expressing the sentiments for your gift is also the ideal way to make the gift recipient feel cared for and special.”

For Any Occasion

Taste for Everyone Gift Basket

The ideal gift baskets for women keep us going all day. This gift basket set is stuffed with sweet and salty snacks to answer any craving. Available in three sizes in either a wooden crate or a tote bag, every gift contains chocolate almond bark, white chocolate pretzels and roasted salsa, but going bigger adds in artichoke lemon pesto, coconut raspberry cookies and—we’ll stop there, because we’re getting hungry.

For the At-Home Gourmand

Brightland Luminous Capsule

There’s olive oil, and then there’s Brightland olive oil, made with Arbequina olives grown along California’s central coast and pressed quickly after harvesting. In this gift set, it’s paired with raw Champagne vinegar that’s fermented with Valencia oranges, along with California orange blossom honey. It’s one of the most perfect gift baskets for women who appreciate the finer things—especially when those things are condiments.

For the One Who Craves Coziness

Chai & Cookie Gift Set

Whether your friend is known for their blanket collection or they need to unwind after a long week, this gift set is as indulgent and warming as, well…vanilla bean shortbread cookies dipped in chai tea. For a little extra sweetness, this box includes a cinnamon and vanilla-infused maple syrup, all in beautiful packaging. It’s the perfect excuse to put on sweats and open up Netflix.

For the One Who’s Streaming Barbie on Repeat

Happy Moments Gift Tower

This gift tower’s pink packaging is fun enough to put you in a good mood. And the treats inside will make that mood even better. Inside, they’ll find a scented candle, different types of sour candies, sugar cookies and marshmallow-granola bites. It’ll look great on the birthday gift table, but is just as good for someone who needs a pick-me-up. For even more color, add in a flower delivery.

For the One Who Watches ‘Hot Ones’

Fly by Jing Set

If they prefer their meals with a little spice, then this gift box packed with Fly By Jing favorites is in order. Each of these spicy gift baskets for women feature the brand’s heavy hitters, like the infamous Sichuan Chili Crisp. And—if that’s not enough heat—it comes with the Xtra Spicy Chili Crisp, that’s three times as spicy as the original. There are also options that are sweeter, tangier, and a little less hot.

It’s impossible to create a list of gift baskets for women without one that offers a spa-in-a-box. A little self-pampering is always called for, and this relaxing collection features cherry blossom products for a dose of springtime. It includes a pumice stone, body butter, body scrub, body lotion and body wash so every morning and night is instantly more nourishing and serene.

Each box includes a mystery book (you select the genre to ensue your giftee will receive something they love) and all sorts of bookish goodies, from keychains to cozy socks to cookies, tea bags, a succulent that will look adorable on their bookshelf and more. It’s not just one of the best gift baskets for women—it’s also a great option as a care package.

For the Coworker

Buds & Blooms Gift Box

This cheese and meat gift box brings a little taste of warm, lazy days. Savory summer sausage, hot mustard and cheeses are balanced by the sweetness of taffy. We love this as a treat to send to friends (especially those who love to host—this is perfect for setting out as a spread) or for people you don’t know as well. It’s tasty, shareable and a delicious surprise.
