Fear Not: Your National Girlfriend Day Gift Guide Is Here

If there’s one thing I love, it’s gift giving and women — so, National Girlfriend Day is kind of my ideal situation. (Like, when Conrad gifted Belly the infinity necklace… I was on the floor.) Every aspect of gift-giving just makes me swoon: The fact that someone took the time to think and pick out something perfectly curated for you? Amazing.

And I’m kind of freaking out because the perfect gift-giving time is upon us — no, not Leo season — but National Girlfriend Day is coming up on Aug 1. I know what you’re thinking, “C’mon I’m single,” but the fun thing about this holiday is that a girlfriend can be in any capacity — romantic or platonic

I know gifts are a huge source of anxiety for a lot of people. How much is too much? And what’s appropriate for a three-month situationship versus a five-year relationship? (Please don’t get the situationship anything, I’m begging!) But, no matter what type of relationship you find yourself in, feel free to use this gift guide to shower any girlfriend in your life with the love they so deserve. And never underestimate the power of a gift, no matter their love language!

Statement Necklace

Chunky necklaces are so in lately, and this heart one ($10) showcases the love you have for your girl on full display. Love that!

Sol de Janeiro Fragrance 

Sol De Janeiro mists are the perfect gift for national girlfriend day ($24). These aren’t TikTok famous for nothing! 

Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) Vinyl

The way to my heart is through music, opt for your GF’s favorite vinyl ($49) to celebrate. BTW, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) is out so… kind of the perfect time.

Heart Pajama Set 

Now this is a win for both of you because this pajama set ($30) is so soft you both won’t ever want to stop cuddling.

3-Wick Candle 

Candles are great, but candles from Bath & Body Works are even better. The Stress Relief scent ($26) means everything to me!

Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil 

Anything from Rare Beauty is on everyone’s wishlist, TBH. But especially the Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil ($20), all the shades are in stock right now, bestie.

Lego Wildflower Bouquet 

If someone got me this Lego set ($60) and then we built it together… we might as well just get married on the spot. 

574 Core

A pair of neutral sneakers ($90) is the perfect gift. They go with practically every outfit and they’re something your girlfriend definitely wants, but doesn’t want to buy herself — which makes the best gift, IMHO. 

Amuseable Boiled Egg Jellycat

Jellycats ($15) are adorable and I need literally every single one. They have so many options like food, animals, sports, plants, and more. So be sure to pick something that is your GF’s favorite!

Birthday Candle

If the Bath & Body Works candle wasn’t your style, the birthday candle ($50) should be. They’re hand poured and give so much info about your GF’s birthday like zodiac sign, ruling planet, lucky number, strengths, and more. 

Chamberlain Coffee Gift Box Bundle

Who doesn’t love Miss Emma Chambie? This coffee set ($44) has it all, a cute mason jar cup, straws, and the best blend — Careless Cat. What more could a girl ask for?

Duck Bag

My Duck Bag from Baggu ($42) is the best thing that ever happened to me, so I’m recommending you get one for your gf ASAP. Thank me later.

Couples Edition — We’re Not Really Strangers

This Couples Edition of We’re Not Really Strangers ($20) encourages building deeper connections with your gf, which is honestly all any relationship could ask for. Grab this deck and some wine bestie, it’s time for a game night.

Rose Wine Glasses

I’m obsessed with these, plus who doesn’t need more wine glasses? ($22) We’re always accepting them at my house.

Haven Heart Ring

Your girlfriend will (probably) audibly squeal after opening this gift. These rings ($60) are adorable and perfect for stacking!
