18 Creative Birthday Gifts Sure to Please All the Special Women in Your Life

Birthday Gift Ideas for Her

We all have special women in our lives that come in many forms—a daughter, a sister, a friend—and once a year (at least), there is cause to celebrate this spectacular person. It’s her birthday, of course! Selecting the perfect gift can be a challenge, but we’re making it easier at My Modern Met Store. Our curated selection of birthday gifts for her offers a wide array of items that are fashionable, fun, and promote creativity.

Wearables are one choice for a unique birthday present. If you tend to avoid purchasing clothing as gifts because you have the dreaded “is this her size?” fear, remember that a shirt isn't your only option. Scarves, bracelets, socks, and jewelry all fall into this camp. You can give your recipient wings with a bird scarf or an extra-cozy shawl. Does she love color? The Rainbow Necklace by Yellow Owl Workshop is another alternative and will go with everything she owns.

Not everyone adores accessories; some are the no-frills types that prefer practical birthday gifts. But pragmatic doesn’t have to mean boring. With an item like the Breakfast at Tiffany’s Book Clutch by Bagatelle Studio, she’ll have the elegance of Truman Capote’s celebrated novella (made iconic with a performance by Audrey Hepburn) with the functionality of a cross-body purse.

Scroll down for a smattering of birthday gift ideas for her, and be sure to check out our entire selection in My Modern Met Store.
