Smart Birthday Gift Ideas For Women That Are Hard To Please

Happy Woman Receiving Present

Do you know a girl or woman who’s extremely picky when it comes to presents, or just overall seem hard to please? Has she ever hit you with the “I already got everything I need?”

Well, as frustrating as it is, sometimes we still want to get her a present!

Fear not though, because I am here to make sure you’re still able to do so.

In this guide, I’ve put together 13 of my favorite “random” gifts that are all over the place that people always seem to appreciate, regardless of how picky they are.

Let’s get into it!

Take her skin care routine to the next level with a luxury skin care set

Nothing screams luxury, beauty, and healthy skin quite like high quality Korean skin care products!

Give her the best-in-test luxury skin care kit that exists right here!

There's no way she can be displeased with it, because I'm pretty sure no better skin care product exists out there - regardless of price.



If you want to go all out... get her a customized painted portrait of her

There are two great ways you can get her a beautiful, framed and painted portrait of her - and either way I guarantee you she's going to love it.

The first one is of course to commission an artist to pain her. This is a truly unique and special gift, and it supports local artists! You can easily find someone online, have them send you the portrait, print it, smack a frame on it and gift it --


OR, you can use AI such as Midjourney where you upload a few photos of her, and it creates a brand new wonderfully painted portrait of her.

This is the ultimate creative present, and is wonderful for someone you really, really care about.


Feed her pets with an automatic pet feeder, because why not

Does she have pets?

Then enough said, get her this automatic pet feeder! It's such a fun addition to any pet household, regardless of their furry friend of choice.


Add to the normal boring bottle-of-wine-present with an electric wine opener

If you were just going to gift a bottle of wine, but want to add something a little extra on top of it, I recommend you go with this electric wine opener!

Buy her a nice bottle of something she'll enjoy, and toss in the electric wine opener - an excellent way to gift two useful things in one!


Up her cheffing with a professional chefs knife

Does she have a nice high quality chef's knife?

Or she they just needs an updated one?

Well, regardless of whether she's into cooking or not, even the most amateur chef needs to make dinner occasionally - and for a good dinner, you need a good knife.

I recommend you go with this guy right here which includes a sharpening stone and finger guard!


Get her something cute and Zen with a full mini Bonsai Tree Kit

If you want to go with something safe that is literally impossible to not like, I recommend you get a little bonsai tree kit like this one.

These are beautiful and affordable little presents that add a lot of any desk or room. They're super cute, kinda give a "zen vibe" to the household, and are so fun to tinker with.



Gift her not just your average digital picture frame...

This is not just another digital frame where you put in photos that will slowly alternate on the windowsill, which has been a true classic for grandparent frames the last 10 years.

No, this frame you can automatically upload photos to from anywhere in the world with an app - and you can add others to it!

So, you get her this frame, she can hang it up - and no matter where you are in the world, or where your siblings, or rest of the friend group is, you can all just hit a button and easily upload photos to the frame that'll automatically show up for her.

It's the perfect present for long distance friends or family members especially!

Keep it personal with a customized phone case

Everyone needs a phone case, so why not get her a nice customized one by you?

Go out of your way to find something you think he might actually like, and just send it.

Worst case scenario, you at least show that you care and put some personalization into your efforts, which I think is the best gift anyone can get!

Go right here to get started.


Gift her this amazing Smart Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle for ultimate hydration

Why get her a normal water bottle when you can get her this super fancy smart water bottle? It does all sorts of fancy things, like light up and remind her to drink - stay hydrated out there, you know?

It's the next greatest thing in unnecessarily cool technology, and I cannot recommend it enough!

Get it right here.


Enhance her mobile photography with a smartphone camera lens kit

If you know they have a remote interest in photography, or just tend to be put on "family photography duty", then this is the gift for her!

This little smartphone camera lens kit is an excellent way for her to easily take hobby photography to the next level - regardless of skill!



Help her add ambiance to any room with these Smart LED Light Strips

Get some cool lights for them to add ambiance to any room!

I love using LED as a way to decorate, and there are so many cool items out there.

My favorite is for sure this one, that she can also hook up to an Alexa! Meaning, if they own an Alexa like this one, she can change the colors of the room by just talking. How cool is that?

Fun fact, the Alexa is only $22...


Revolutionize her reading with a Kindle Paperwhite E-reader

If she's a book-tok girly, and doesn't have a Kindle already, this is for sure the way to go.

Some people are stubborn, including me back in the day, and refuse to make the switch over to an e-reader - but I PROMISE you, it's revolutionary, and she's going to thank you in the long run.

Go get her the Kindle Paperwhite. It's an excellent way for her to read all sorts of books without having to drag around a massive book!

Revolutionize it even more with a Kindle Unlimited Subscription for infinite books!

If she's already got a Kindle, or you'd like to add on to the previous gift, I really recommend you get a Kindle Unlimited Subscription!

With this subscription, she's essentially able to read any book there ever is, was and will be!

Honestly think about that for a second: we live in a reality where any of us can read any book at any time, with something as easy as a little subscription. Even the most stingy, hard-to-please woman on this planet has got to appreciate that just a little.
