There are two types of people during the holidays: the one who tackles their gift list between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and the one who is left scrambling last minute to find presents for their loved ones. I'm here to help the latter, as I've rounded up 49 awesome gifts for women. Whether it’s for your mom, girlfriend, sister, or best friend they'll thank you.

Instead of giving them a cheesy mug, impersonal T-shirt, or even a candle (I'm guilty of that), give them something that they'll not only love, but they'll actually use. Do they love to cook up recipes in the kitchen? Gift them a cool appliance that they would never buy for themselves. Is your sister a huge entertainer? Then why not give her an awesome bar cart, so she can entertain in style? Does your girlfriend deserve a pamper day? If she does, you could always wrap up a bunch of amazing beauty products for her.

No matter the personality of the women in your life, you can find a gift that is actually functional, practical, and yet still fun. So if you're still out there searching for the perfect gift, look no further, I've got you covered.
