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, or sister, 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 (she'll love you for it).
Know someone who won't leave the house before straightening their hair? Give the gift of no more flat irons with this innovative hair straightening brush — it has ten times the power of a regular straightener, and it takes only 50 seconds to heat up.
I love multi-functional items more than anything in the world. And this bar cart doubles as a wine rack, and you can store glasses on there, as well. Bar carts are great additions to living rooms or dining rooms for people who love to entertain.
Give them a travel-sized version of a sleep spray that actually works (and smells lovely, as it's made with lavender, vetivert, and chamomile). Now you could always go with the original packaging, but this holiday popper is too cute not to gift to someone.
Amazon has come out with the thinnest and lightest Kindle ever. It features an ergonomic design, so you can read comfortably for hours. The best part about it is that it has an extremely long battery life — you can go months without charging it.

If you have someone in your life who loves to experiment with cooking and thinks that they're the next Iron Chef, a set of color coded cutting boards is a great gift. That way, they can cook to their hearts desire without worrying about contaminating any food.

My Mom loves her wine decanter. She brings it out when she has friends over to let red wine breathe. The wine actually does end up tasting better, and it looks nicer being served out of the crystal carafe than in the bottle.
Beats make some great headphones. The sound quality is clear, and the headphones are comfortable. These ones feature a 12-hour rechargeable battery, and a built-in-mic so you can take calls while using them.
I love giving gifts that are at least a little bit homemade. This photo display is a really cool present, but what would make it even better is if you filled it up with photos of you and the person you're giving it to, and cool memories you have together.
Do you know someone who loves to brew their own tea? If you do, you need to get them this tea sampler that features flavors like: Green Tea, China GreenTea, Black Tea, Flavored Black Tea, White Tea, Herbal Tea, Flavored Rooibos Tisane, and Rooibos Herbal Tisane.
