‘Tis the season of giving, and with that comes the long lists of gifts you need to get for those dear to you. What seems easy at the beginning of your shopping trip can become a little tricky when you realize that every gift idea you had wasn’t the best. We’re here to make it a bit easier on you - if a female entrepreneur is on your list. These gifts were curated to be both practical and thoughtful for any woman working hard to make their dreams a reality.

Whether she is an organization fanatic or aesthetic addict, these folders are perfect for your lady boss. They are functional for documents and the feminine touch will bring a pleasant pop of color to any workspace. It’s subtle enough for a minimalist taste, yet bold for those fierce ladies who are making strides in their entrepreneurial journey.
2019 Lady Boss Certified Planner, $36, Etsy
Planners are a necessity for any entrepreneur. Add in hair appointments, nail sessions and spa days, and you need one that does it ALL. Give the gift of organization with this 2019 lady boss planner that does just that. It contains a budget log, hand-lettered quotes, habit tracker pages, note space, weekly priorities list, grocery list, sketchbook pages, and more. You can even get it custom made with the receiver's name in calligraphy on the front for a few more dollars.
Motivational Wall Print, $5, Etsy

Statement Scent Sampler, $65, Sephora
The ideal gift for a lady boss that doesn’t quite know what she wants or that likes to choose the gift herself is something she can try out before making a solid decision. This sample kit comes with a variety of scents, so it’s almost impossible that she won’t find a new favorite perfume. It contains sample sizes, which are perfect for on-the-go testing, and a redemption card to redeem a full-sized product. We think it’s fair to deem this one the ‘gift that keeps on giving’.
Handy Dandy Desktop Organizer, $26, Amazon
