Valentine’s Day comes around once a year to totally screw over men whose girlfriends have impeccable taste (a.k.a. hard-to-shop-for women). No matter the occasion, finding gifts for her that she’ll truly love can feel impossible. Every year, no matter what you do, it seems like your girlfriend gets that cringe-y “No, I do love it!” face whenever she unwraps your present. Then there’s the awkward back and forth about whether she actually likes it and you are forced to reassure her that she can, “Totally return it if she wants to!”
Sigh. Let’s skip that this year, shall we? To help you out, we’ve gathered the best gifts for girlfriends that they actually want.
The type of gift you get your girlfriend depends on many factors. First off — does your girlfriend even like and/or care about Valentine’s Day? Chances are the answer is yes — but if she doesn’t, we would recommend going the simple route with classic Valentine’s Day gifts such as food, flowers, booze or chocolate. You’ll never go wrong with chocolate. If your girlfriend likes Valentine’s Day — that’s where the fun begins.
Below, you’ll find all of the best gifts for girlfriends for Valentine’s Day 2022, Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions.

23. Camo Zebra Boa in Rose
Help her channel her inner Carrie Bradshaw with this Camo Zebra Boa in Rose from At Home With Ray. Once upon a time, someone told us that gifts should always be something the recipient wouldn’t buy themselves. This boa distinctly falls into the category, as few women would splurge on a scarf as bold as this one. But wearing it will make her feel like a rock star and perfectly on-trend.
