Best Gifts for Moms
Whether her taste is sentimental or sensible, your mom (or mom-in-law) will appreciate these gifts. If she skews toward the former, a custom photo book (complete with her favorite pictures, of course) should do the trick. For the latter, a master class experience can awaken the lifelong learner in her. When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with elevated classics like a luxe sleep mask or bathrobe.

Best Gifts for Sisters
Of course these gifts will make your sister happy, but more importantly, they’ll remind her that you’re the coolest sibling. Consider cute, unexpected knick-knacks like waterproof playing cards, a light-up cloud that tracks the weather, or stylish accessories like an outdoorsy belt bag and Y2K-esque Uggs. Otherwise, go for a pair of AirPods or a SELF Fave Kindle to ensure she has plenty of entertainment (when she isn’t hanging out with you, that is).

Shopping for your significant other and want to go the steamy route? A lingerie subscription, kinky bedroom game, or best-selling sex toy should help you turn up the heat.

Best Outdoor Gifts
They’ll be a very happy camper when they unwrap these outdoorsy gifts. Both Barebones’s lantern and Stanley’s TikTok-approved water bottle won SELF Outdoor Awards this year for their balance of function and aesthetics. (Doesn’t the Beacon just have that classic campsite look?) Meanwhile, the SELF Fave Trekkie North Jogger from Athleta impressed one editor so much that she called them “a nearly perfect pair of bottoms” for leisurely days outside.

Best Sneaker Gifts
They’re probably well aware of Hoka’s major fan following at this point, but you can give your loved one a reason to board the bandwagon with the SELF Sneaker Award–winning Bondi 8 shoes, which earned the title of Best High-Cushion Walking Sneaker. Converse’s AS-1 Pro also brought home an award this year, and it’s a great pick for skaters and street style enthusiasts alike. If your favorite runner could use a cushy recovery shoe to slip on after racking up miles, the SELF Fave Kane Revive Shoe will help their feet recharge.
Best Cooking Gifts
They won’t just love using these gifts around the kitchen, they’ll also proudly display them on the countertop. Yield’s editor-recommended coffee maker, Our Place’s SELF Fave Mini Always Pan, and Made In’s sturdy Butcher Block are all top-notch pieces of cookware that just happen to look great too. And for the person who appreciates a fine olive oil, Graza’s buzzy Drizzle and Sizzle Set wowed SELF’s EVOO-loving food writer.

Best Tech Gifts
While Courant’s sleek charging tray and Lexon’s retro Bluetooth speaker will spare them from cord clutter, this Outdoor Award–winning power bank from BioLite will help them avoid a midday battery-drained phone.

Best Subscription Gifts
Maybe you’re shopping at the last minute, maybe you want your gift to (literally) keep on giving—either way, a subscription is a great way to go. For the coffee devotee, try the SELF Fave Atlas Coffee Club. For the yoga and Pilates lover, consider Alo Moves’s SELF Home Fitness Award–winning service, which offers more than 3,000 streaming classes.
