1. An Indoor Garden
Say hello to Click & Grow, a company that makes gardening accessible in a whole new, seriously smart way. This app-controlled smart garden grows everything from herbs and veggies to fruits and flowers—indoors. A grow light and automatic watering do all of the heavy lifting, bringing fresh tastes, joyful colors and soothing scents right to the kitchen countertop. No wonder it's such a popular gift for wives.
2. Pushpin Map
Oh, the places you'll go—and the places you've been! A pushpin map helps you and your wife keep track of all of your wonderful travels together. Best of all, you can personalize this interactive wall art with anything that you want, like your names and an important date or a sweet phrase such as: "You're my favorite adventure." What a cute gift!
3. Washable Silk Pajamas
Lunya's best-selling mulberry silk pajamas are the crème de la crème of sleepwear. They're soft, sophisticated, thermoregulation, and, most importantly, machine washable. Low-maintenance silk? Now that's a dream come true. We personally love this oversized T-shirt and short set in the limited tan color, but you can also shop tank top or pant sets and even robes. (FYI for new customers: Use the code FOR-TK20 for $20 off of your first order of $100 or more!)
4. Scratch-Off Date Idea Book
The Adventure Challenge is one of our all-time favorite creative gifts for your wife. The scratch-off book is filled with unique date ideas like cooking an apple pie blindfolded or painting a masterpiece on each other. There's a catch though, once you scratch off a square, you have to do the challenge. (Don't worry, there's a time and money guide over each box to help you decide which to reveal.) We suggest pairing the book with their instant camera, so as you complete each date, you can turn the guide into a scrapbook. Use code THEKNOT20 for 20% off your purchase.
5. Smart Watch Accessories
Give her Apple Watch a glow-up with this glamorous gift set. The box includes six mix-and-match accessories that'll make her smart watch sparkle: one crystal pavé link band, one classic basketweave band, two rhinestone-studded face cases and two solid metallic face cases. Now she can switch up her style—but always be bejeweled—whenever she pleases.
6. Custom Song
If you really want to pull out all the stops for your beloved wife, you can stop scrolling. This professional musician will turn your love story into a one-of-a-kind song. Answer some questions and singer-songwriter David Morgan will create a custom track. He'll then send you an mp3 file with the tune and a pdf of the lyrics (psst, get it framed). If that's not a romantic gift for your wife, we don't know what is.
7. Birth Flower Necklace
We'd be remiss if we didn't include jewelry as one of the top gifts for your wife. And first up is a piece perfect as a birthday present for your wife. This symbolic pendant necklace features her birth flower and comes in sterling silver, 14K gold filled or 14K rose-gold filled. For a touch of romance, stack two or more pendants on the chain—her birth flower, yours and any children.
8. Recipes From Historical Figures
Speaking of gifts for history lovers—or the world's best home baker or a keen foodie—your wife will be seriously impressed by this unique present. It's a subscription that offers a whole year of recipes from famous figures throughout history. Each month, your spouse gets a replica of the handwritten recipe (as well as a transcript in case any of the handwriting is hard to read). From pancakes by Rosa Parks to Queen Elizabeth II's scone recipe, there's a lot to get excited about. Just choose between a six- or 12-month duration.
9. Wear-Everywhere Crewneck
The warmest woman in your life deserves the coziest sweatshirt on the market. Outdoor Voices has perfected the art of ultra-soft clothing and this best-selling sweatshirt is no exception. It's made from 63% recycled wool (yay sustainability!), which is naturally thermoregulating. Shop sizes XS to XXXL in this chic forest green color.
10. Custom Constellation Drinkware
Here's a super romantic gift for your wife: custom night sky glassware. This set of two glasses features etchings of the constellations that were suspended in the night sky on the special night of your choosing, maybe her birthday or your anniversary, as well as a name and special date. Choose between two wine glasses, two beer glasses or one of each.
11. Sound Wave Art
If you're hoping to truly wow your wife with a romantic gift, this personalized wall art will do just that. This shop will turn a special song into a modern sound wave print. This sweet and sentimental present will definitely be hung in a place of prominence.
12. Self-Care Subscription
Why give your wife one pampering gift when you can give her six whole months of glorious self-care? This thoughtful subscription is a must-buy for Mother's Day (though we wager she'd appreciate this present at any time of the year). Some examples of the monthly deliveries she'll receive include a home spa gift set and a crystal bath bomb gift set. Go on, she deserves it.
13. Trendy Travel Cup
We're sure your wife has already told you how Stanley cups are all the rage. Surprise her with the brand's iconic giant handled tumbler in one of these soft matte hues that look like pastel candies. Choose between 30-ounce and 40-ounce sizes.
14. Home Gym in a Mirror
Has your wife always wanted a home gym, but just doesn't have space for one? The Mirror solves that problem in style. This sleek and fully functional mirror is secretly a cardio class, boxing ring, pilates studio and more all in one. It has a built-in camera for working out with friends and getting live feedback from instructors, a hidden speaker system that delivers surround sound and a high-definition LED display designed for working out alone or with a partner. Now that's a 21st-century home gym.
15. Retro Reel Viewer
Who's ready for some serious nostalgia? Use this retro reel viewer to put her favorite memories on display in an adorable, creative way. It's a gift that requires a little lead time, but the end result is so worth it. Your purchase comes with the gadget and a redemption code to create your reel, so give yourself enough time to craft and order your custom photo story.
16. Mini Fire Pit
This little gadget will create an instant campsite ambiance, even when she's stuck inside in the winter. The personal fire pit uses rubbing alcohol and a match to start a small flame in the concrete furnace. And it's safe for roasting s'mores indoors, so naturally you have to pair this unique gift for your wife with marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers.
17. Virtual Class
If you're shopping for a gift for your wife who has everything, check out Uncommon Experiences. The popular gift shop Uncommon Goods has expanded to offer a curated list of virtual classes for every interest, from mixology to astrology. She can smoke some cocktails, study her birth chart or paint her pet—all from the comfort of home. And of course, you're welcome to join her! In fact, there are some excellent offerings for date night, like this aphrodisiac-inspired cooking class.
18. Cashmere Scarf
This scarf was made as a tribute to love—seriously, it's printed with pink brush-stroke hearts. It can be looped around her neck, draped over the shoulders or used as a travel blanket. No matter which way she wears it, she'll feel stylish and cozy thanks to the soft cashmere fabric. Better still, for each sold, NAKEDCASHMERE will be donating $50 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
19. Sparkly Tennis Bracelet
This romantic gift for your wife is a lot more affordable than it looks. That's because it's made with dazzling Swarovski crystals instead of actual diamonds. The bracelet looks just as stunning for a fraction of the price. Tennis bracelets are a classic style that anyone with an eye for sophisticated sparkle will appreciate.
20. Coveted Hair Tool
Is your wife frustrated with her getting-ready routine? The beauty world is obsessed with the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and she might be too. Yes, it's definitely expensive, but the idea is that it replaces an entire arsenal of pricey hair tools. The award-winning device comes with a range of accessories, from hair-smoothing brushes to flyaway-taming attachments. Keep an eye on Dyson's Deals page for special sales and promotions. And check out the product reviews for some very convincing testimonials.

It's an all-in-one feeding, roosting and hibernation station for those pretty winged insects your wife loves.
22. Wine Tasting Flight
Celebrate her birthday with an at-home wine tasting. In Good Taste offers seven curated flights of mini bottles of wine to sample together. For instance, the Red Red Wine flight will take her on a journey through rouge hues. Too fun! Plus, the bottles are simply adorable. This brand might just be your wife's favorite new discovery.
23. Love Letter Necklace
Here's a thoughtful gift for your wife if she loves unique and meaningful jewelry. This necklace is actually a locket with a pull-out love letter stashed inside of the envelope charm. Personalize the "paper" with a small note, like your wedding date or "I love you" in your own handwriting. You've just found the sweetest wedding anniversary gift for your wife.
24. Pearl Bracelet
When it comes to jewelry, you can't go wrong with something classic—like pearls. (Plus, pearlcore is totally trending.) This dainty pearl bracelet puts a delicate spin on a timeless style for under $100.

Give your wife the hottest footwear right now—a fashionable and comfortable pair of Allbirds runners in her favorite color. Ideal for her long commute, an afternoon of errands or a weekend stroll through the neighborhood, this pair of eco-friendly sneakers is the way to go. The machine-washable knit fabric (made from responsibly sourced eucalyptus fibers) is lightweight, breathable and complemented by bouncy, cushioned midsoles.
27. Patterned Robe
Hill House Home's coveted Nap Dresses are a viral sensation, but don't sleep on the brand's other, equally excellent offerings. This cheerful hotel robe—made from plush, organic cotton—will make her feel like she's on vacation every single morning. Not to mention, it can come in three charming floral patterns, and you can add her monogram.
28. Trending Lip Oil
She's already super kissable, but she'll still love this iconic lip oil from Dior. The silky formula will make her pout even softer, with a subtle hint of color. Kick things up a notch and get the tube personalized.
29. Mini Do-It-All Pan
Our Place has created an adorably sized version of the famous Always Pan. It's convenient for cooking sides, single fried eggs and meals for one. Any culinarily adventurous spouse will appreciate this nifty tool (especially if you don't always share their advanced foodie palate). With the Mini Always Pan, she can create her own delicious concoctions in singular portions. The most genius part of all? It can be used as a frying pan, skillet, steamer… the list goes on.
30. Flower Subscription
Flowers are one romantic gift for your wife that'll never go out of style. Give your spouse fresh, farm-to-vase blooms with a subscription to flower gift delivery service BloomsyBox. Now she can have a beautiful bouquet on her birthday and every month after.
31. Cashmere Sweater
We have complete faith that you can pick out cute clothes to give your wife as a gift. If you're unsure, though, here's a tip: sweaters—especially ones made from cashmere. Your partner will feel so cozy and chic. And they don't have to be expensive. Quince sells affordable cashmere pieces, like this simple crewneck sweater in 14 colors. Don't just take our word for it, though, it has nearly 7,000 positive reviews.
32. Galaxy Rose
If your wife has a soft spot for fairy tales, she'll obsess over this enchanted rose. With iridescent petals and a yellow-gold stem, it's truly a sight to behold. The flower sits in a charming glass dome surrounded by fairy lights. How magical!
33. Leather Makeup Travel Case
Your wife probably already has a toiletry bag of sorts, but does it put in as much work as this clever kit? We doubt it. This full-grain leather makeup bag has a water-resistant lining, with six interior pockets (two zippered, four open) to fit all her travel essentials. Oh, and did we mention it comes in 12 different colors? Best of all, though, it can be debossed, hand-painted or even trapunto quilted with her monogram.
34. Phone Sanitizer
For the woman who takes sanitization seriously, there's the PhoneSoap Pro. This UV-powered disinfecting device can kill bacteria on her phone, credit cards and even her jewelry. It's the gadget that she never knew she needed, but one that she'll definitely appreciate having.
35. Kate Spade Handbag
What better place to find chic accessories for your other half than Kate Spade? Pick up a stylish purse for your wife to show her you support her obsession with fashion. We personally love this convertible one, which comes in different colors and can be carried over her shoulder or as a crossbody. It'll fit everything she needs for date night with you.
36. Rose Gold Watch
A shiny new watch is a great gift for your wife because it commemorates all the time you two have spent together. (It's also a good gift idea for the wife who could use an upgrade.) This gorgeous timepiece comes in trendy rose gold-plated stainless steel with a genuine marble dial for a stunning accessory.
37. Weekend Duffle Bag
We know your wife has seen—and probably shown you—this viral bag before. So, here's your reminder that she wants it! The Mini Weekender has all the sought-after features of the original, but is sized to fit as a personal item on a plane. And it has a trolley pass to easily stack with her rolling luggage. With three interior pockets and a padded tech sleeve, plus an exterior zip pocket and a bottom shoe compartment, she'll be able to pack and overpack for any vacation.
38. Cozy Weighted Blanket
Let's talk weighted blanket benefits: They help stimulate serotonin (the happy hormone) and reduce cortisol (the stress hormone) as well as increase melatonin (the sleep hormone) to help users relax and rest efficiently. Trust us, this chunky-knit, velvet blanket will improve every snuggle-sesh. Plus, it's eco-friendly.
39. Colored Wine Glasses
This year's must-have kitchen accessory is colored glasses. From wine glasses, flutes and coupes to rocks glasses and goblets, this fun drinkware will make every table setting feel like a party.

If your wife isn't already the hostess with the mostest, she will be after receiving this gift. This bamboo, compact serving board starts in a triangle shape, but can open into a tiered, circular server for the ultimate charcuterie board. And, it's complete with a stainless steel cheese fork and two knives in a hidden drawer to keep everything organized. Better still, it can be custom engraved with her monogram, so at a potluck, everyone will know it's hers.

42. Preserved Roses
A bouquet of roses is a universal symbol of romance. Take it up a notch for your loving wife with a bouquet of preserved roses. This means they'll last up to a year, so she'll always have a floral centerpiece. Simply pick the box style and rose color, then add a card at check-out.
43. Comfy Sweatpants
Your wife might have a closet full of cozy loungewear already, but that doesn't mean she won't appreciate more, especially if it's a pair of sweatpants from Outdoor Voices. Their CloudKnit pants are lightweight, breathable, wrinkle-resistant and—as the name suggests—extremely soft. You can pair them with a matching top to build her favorite WFH fit.
