Whether she’s the cool aunt, quirky friend, or just a really nice lady who deserves to get a more thought-out present, we have the answer for you.

There are thousands upon thousands of different gifts you could get her; but what does she not already have? What is going to really stand out?

In this edition of our gift-giving guides, I will tell you just that!

Let’s get into it!

Send her up in the sky by gifting her a hot air balloon ride

Yeah I said it!

I guarantee you no one has gotten her this one before, and it is so much fun.

Hot air ballon rides are all over the world, and it's an affordable once-in-a-lifetime experience that she will never forget.

Combine personal and fun by getting her a custom-made jigsaw puzzle

Did you know you can take any photo and turn it into your own custom jigsaw puzzle? Simply go over to Shutterfly (not affiliated, they just have a lot of cool stuff!) and get creative!

Turn a memorable photo of her family, friend group, dog, childhood photo, you, or whatever else you think she'll appreciate. 

Make it even better by getting a frame to go with it, so that when the puzzle is done she can hang it on the wall.

Super fun, super personal, and can last for a long time on that wall.


Help her trace her bloodline back with an Ancestry DNA kit

Get her a kit from Ancestry that’ll allow her to trace her genetic heritage and explore her family tree! This is an excellent way to learn all about how she specifically ended up where she is through hundreds of years of ancestors coming together.

Most Americans and Canadians are a mix of tons of different races and ethnicities, and this is a great way for her to connect with her ancestral past and culture!


Get her a memorable culinary experience for her 50th!

Over at Cozymeal, you can get online cooking classes from professional chefs all over the world.

Make a day out of it! Get all the ingredients yourself, maybe some drinks, and join her for the class! That way all she has to worry about is having fun and learn how to cook.

There are an infinite amounts of delicious recipes and great chefs that teach you so many techniques.

Gift her a fun night out with wine and paint

Almost all cities tend to have a studio that will regularly host wine and paint nights, and it is a load of fun for a chill night "out".

Get the girlies together, cover her fee and wine and go paint with a glass of wine, or two or three.

The best part is: she doesn't need to be a good painter to enjoy it!

Remind her how beautiful she is with a professional photoshoot

I have a feeling that the woman you are shopping for does not have enough recent professional photos of just her. Family don't count!

Hire a professional photographer, or get a friend to come take some great new photos of her to remind her just how beautiful she is!

Better yet, there are lots of ways to make a whole day out of it. Get some cute outfits, put on some make-up and pick a cool location for some beautiful new photos. Why not grab dinner or drinks after as well?

It's always nice to update the social media profile picture (or even dating app!)

Give her the gift of infinite herbs with an indoor hydroponic garden

Gift your recipient the dopamine boost that comes from growing her own herbs by getting her an indoor hydroponic garden!

These mini-gardens function the same regardless of the climate you’re in, and allow her to grow her favorite herbs a-plenty – as well as receiving the satisfaction of having some plants around.

Gift her something personal, meaningful and beautiful all in one with custom-made map-art

You can turn any location in the world into beautiful map-art over at Mapify!

Pick a location that means a lot to her, turn it into personalized art, frame it and gift it to her. It's a beautiful, personal and affordable present that she'll never forget.

It could be her childhood hometown, favorite vacation spot, first city living alone, her current neighborhood, college town, where she met her hubby or anything else with some meaning you can think of.

Get creative!

Bless her ears with a personalized vinyl mixtape

Make her a good ol' fashioned mixtape, but make it vinyl!

You can turn any playlist into a vinyl record over at Vinylify, and for another $50 you can pick-up a vinyl record player off Amazon if she doesn't already have one!

What's great about this present is how incredibly personalized you can make it.

Pick her favorite songs, or songs with meaning, or something that describes your relationship. Regardless, she is sure to appreciate it.
