Straight from the mouths of my hardest to buy for relatives, here are 19 gifts for the woman who has everything, as requested by women who have everything!
We all know those people. The people who don’t really need anything and feel impossible to buy for.
And I hate to say it…the older I get, the more this describes most of my family.
So I did the unthinkable, and asked my family members what to give them for Christmas, birthdays, or any other holiday. But I did’t ask just anybody. I asked the people who really don’t need another trinket. I asked the people that go ahead and get what they want when they want it without a second thought.
Yes, I asked the hard-to-buy for members what they would actually want to get as gifts.
And I’m sharing their answers with you, because it’s a lot more fun to give a gift without having to ask what someone wants. Up first: what the women said! (Because the men are still being stubborn. But when I get their lists, you can bet I’ll share it!)

Anchor Hocking Heritage Hill jars were requested by name, probably because of their timeless shape and style. Though Anchor Hocking has a wide variety of styles if you prefer something a little different.
Wooden spoons are simply the best cooking utensil. But they can split and crack after a while, becoming a haven for nasty bacteria. Plus, the ones with colorful handles are just so much fun! (see more options here)
Touchless was actually in bold on one wishlist…which I totally understand. My kids touch our soap dispensers with such grimy hands sometimes. Yet, it feels extravagant to purchase something like this, making it an awesome gift. (get yours here)
To quote my family member “Drink carts are all the rage right now”. Thankfully, they’re available in a wide variety of styles and colors, and prices. (see more options here)
It seems like everybody starts off buying bulky plastic measuring cups and spoons…but eventually the markings all rub off or you lose one or two from the set. If your loved one hasn’t already, upgrade them to stainless steel. We have one set of these measuring cups and I truly can’t wait to get a second set as well as a set of new spoons.

Chances are, the people that are hardest to buy for also like to entertain. And outdoor entertaining is always in need of more lighting. Outdoor hurricane lanterns are perfect for letting candles set a little ambiance without getting blown out by the wind. (see the hurricane above and other options here)
Again, Reidel glasses were specifically requested because they have a good hand feel and fit easily in the dishwasher. But I can’t help also noting that we own these plastic wine tumblers. They are especially great for people with young kids…or are a bit clumsy like me.
A large Le Creuset Dutch Oven was a splurge we made several years back, and I’ve had no regrets. Yes, they’re pricey and heavy, but you just can’t beat the ceramic coated cast iron for any recipe that goes from stove to oven or vice versa.
Yes, this is something that a family member requested, and it makes total sense. Wine coasters protect counters from drips, sweat, bottle rings, and scratches (if you’re twisting to open a bottle of wine). We love ours.
Honestly, this request took me off guard. But a coco fiber front door mat was requested specifically for the ability to be monogrammed, and that they look nice. Go figure...
Boos has developed a name for quality with its cutting boards. If you know someone who absolutely loves to cook, they will probably be thrilled to get one of his boards. (see more here)
A Few More Gifts for the Woman who has Everything:
- Linen Tea Towels, either monogrammed or seasonal
- Thirstystone Coasters
- Bathroom Apothecary Jars (We have these plastic ones, which are great for families with kids)
- Cookie Jar or Dog Treat Jar
- Seasonal Plates for Decorating and Entertaining
- Good quality sheets and towels
- Wine decanters
- Or, if you’re really feeling sneaky, find out if they need any replacements for favorite china or silver that’s been lost or broken through the years.
