The type of gift you give will naturally be determined by the type of relationship you have, but in every case, it’s important to put some thought into it. Paying attention to the little things go a long way, so a gift that’s very personal will make a bigger impression than the price tag. With that said, brand-name gifts are guaranteed to make her friends jealous, and what women doesn’t love that? Here are some ideas to get you started.
Gunter Wilhelm Cookware & Cutlery
Whether your loved one is a professional chef or just acts like one in the kitchen, you can’t go wrong with Gunter Wilhelm, which produces high-quality cookware and cutlery that lasts longer, makes food prep easier and results in tastier meals. Their stainless steel cookware is some of the best we’ve ever used, boasting a 5-ply construction that offers superior conduction and even heat distribution, which means that you can throw on a piece of fish or meat directly from the freezer and have it ready in under 15 minutes, restaurant-style. They also feature a rivetless design that make them easy to clean; an electropolished, stick-resistant mirror finish that eliminates the need for sprays, oils or butter; stay-cool silicone handles that are oven-safe to 500 degrees F; and vented, self-standing lids with a temperature port for digital thermometers. If you don’t want to break the bank on one of their cookware sets (though they’re always running deals that are practically a steal), Gunter Wilhelm’s cutlery – from a 7-piece beginner set, to a 26-piece executive set with 12 steak knives – makes for a great alternative. These knives are amazing, with excellent weight and balance, a comfortable grip and an extra-wide blade for enhanced performance. Along with the cookware, they’re the perfect complement to any kitchen.
STREET by 50 On-Ear Wireless Sport Headphones
SMS Audio’s STREET by 50 line may not have the name recognition of a brand like Beats by Dre, but it’s a worthy substitute with comparable audio. The problem with a lot of premium headphones, however, is that they’re not exactly built for working out. STREET by 50’s Sport collection looks to address that with the introduction of wired and wireless on-ear headphones that, much like the less stylish Soul+ Combat, are designed with active lifestyles in mind. They’re IPX4 rated for sweat resistance and protection, with a sweat-proof chamber within the ear cup and OVALFIT perforated leather memory foam on the headband and ear pads that provide comfort and breathability. The headphones also boast professionally-tuned 40mm custom drivers for high-quality sound and include a one-click microphone, on-board track and volume controls, ear covers for added protection and a sports towel. But perhaps most crucially, they’re surprisingly lightweight, which makes them ideal for gym rats and marathon runners, especially women who can’t wear the bulkier models while moving around.
