Great Christmas gifts are a delicate art. They tend to be the types of things you can imagine the other person liking, but never actually buying for themselves.

Equal parts thoughtful and sweet, picking out awesome presents for the women in your life demonstrates that you really do have a solid understanding of who they are.

However, thinking of an appropriate gift that your girl(s) would be delighted to receive can be a headache every time the holiday season rolls around. The pressure's on to be original and thoughtful, and to pick something that shows exactly how much you care. Fuck.

To help you out if your inspiration is running dry this year, we've rounded up several picks for the holiday season that we think every special woman would love to receive this Christmas (or whatever you're celebrating these holidays):

Glossier Phase 1 Make-Up Set ($80)

Run by blogger-entrepreneur Emily Weiss, Glossier is a certified "it girl" beauty brand whose creative direction is as expertly done as its products.

This make-up set combines several skincare products into a solid sampler of their products. It includes Priming Moisturizer, Milk Jelly Cleanser, Balm Dotcom, and Perfecting Skin Tint.

It's the perfect cosmetic gift for women who prefer low-key make-up, or going au naturale.

Antique Mirror Container 9 ($282)

Tuscan artisan good company Antique Mirror tapped Canadian designer Garth Roberts for a series of eye-catching containers perfect for storing jewelry, keys and just about anything you can put into them.

Mixing hand-laid oak with mirror cladding, this rectangular box offers a bold blue and gold finish with a solid matte interior.

Saint Clair Jewelry Kiran Necklace ($140)

Indie jeweler Cameron Archer makes these beautiful handcrafted necklaces with an eye-catching 3.5 inch tassel charm.

Combined with 1.5 inch hammered brass scallops and a coordinating amber Japanese cording, Archer's Kiran necklace is an attractively unique piece for any lucky woman to receive.

visvim Hudson Military Jacket ($3,000)

Trying to get your girl into visvim? Consider this exorbitantly-priced military-inspired jacket.

Designed by Hiroki Nakamura's wife Kelsi, it's constructed in Japan from high-density nylon with a low sheen, and lined in super-warm mohair with fleece and leather details. Oh, and it's got lined hand warmer pockets, too.

This might be the piece that gets her hooked on the cult brand, so next year she may want her own pair of FBTs.

Whiteprint Studio Roses Zip Wallet ($190)

Los Angeles-based Whiteprint Studio makes unisex accessories with a cheeky appeal. This zip-top wallet is made from Italian leather and features an allover rose print pattern.

The hand-sewn sides are burnished for a smooth finish and promote clean lines; the interior is lined with micro canvas for durability; and the silver zipper and foil embossed logo add just enough shine.

Louise Copper Large Vase ($95)

Home decor is always a thoughtful gift, and this blush pink spun still vase from Hawkins New York would be welcome in any woman of taste's abode.

The copper-plated finish contributes to this vase's sleek, minimal appeal.

Mister Green x Eunbi Wake & Bake Cup ($65)

Women smoke too, so why not let them do it in style?

Mister Green is a lifestyle brand aimed at making cannabis culture look a little bit better, so they tapped Los Angeles ceramic studio Eunbi to reinvent stoner staples into tasteful goods you won't want to hide.

The Wake & Bake cup pulls double duty as a mug with a built in straw, and has an enlightener on top for...well, baking.

Pintrill Girls Pin Pack 2 ($40)

Chances are, you communicate with the lady in your life in emojis more than words. Bring some of them IRL with this girl-themed pin set from Pintrill.

Baron Von Fancy "I Love Everything" Print ($200)

Whether given as a tongue-in-cheek reminder that you have to accept your partner's faults in a relationships, or because your girl genuinely likes Baron Von Fancy, this framed print is a thoughtful present that deserves to hang in the walls of her home or office.

Terra Hydro Vase Terrarium ($250)

Buying plants can be tough, but when they're housed in a compact, tastefully-designed ecosystem, they're no sweat to give.

This Terra Hydro Vase Terrarium requires minimal upkeep, which is great if your girl isn't one to keep plants alive for long.
