Christine Giordano

Never underestimate the importance of a good gift—a physical token of appreciation can speak volumes about your love for and understanding of your partner. Even if it’s a small token, isn’t it nice to feel loved and know that your boo is thinking about you?

That said, when’s the last time you picked your girlfriend up a little something to let her know you’ve been thinking of her? Gift giving is not solely designated for the holidays, people! You can show your love for each other any day of the year. Even if you are the best partner in the world, a gift that your girlfriend will love and use will win you even more brownie points. And who doesn't want that?

Now, if you're looking to step up your gift-giving game—take a deep breath. Picking out the perfect present does not have to be stressful. In fact, it can be fun. Just close your eyes and think of all the things your girlfriend loves to do. Whether she prefers spending time in the great outdoors camping and chilling by the ocean, splurging on the latest makeup launches, listening to music, hitting the gym, or investing in trendy clothes and accessories, there's bound to be a gift on this list your girlfriend had no idea she truly needed in her life (just like you!).

Ahead, check out the 56 best gifts for your girlfriend. And feel free to grab a few to stash in the closet for "emergencies" (i.e. the anniversary of your first kiss that you totally remembered), too.
