We might be going out on a limb by saying this, but it’s not as hard to come up with gift ideas for women, coworkers, bosses, sisters (or anyone else on your list) as you might the frantic Google search that led you here might suggest.

But finding presents they’ll actually like and not just stuff at the back of the wardrobe? Well, that’s a different beast entirely.
Fortunately, we’ve done most of the legwork this holiday season and rounded up 50 of the best Christmas gifts for her, and the best for you to give to the ladies in your life – whatever their taste and however deep your pockets. You’re welcome.
