Do none of these seem right for the ladies in your life? I’ve got you covered.
What junk thing has she been dealing with? Old boots? Old tools? A ripped tote bag? Buy her what she needs as much as what she wants. Where is she struggling? How can you alleviate her work load with an item? Practical isn’t unwelcome.

And in closing most women won’t turn down wine, an adventure, or a live show (whether it’s death metal or broadway is on you).
