The Know Your Value community embraces female empowerment by helping women recognize their self-worth and get what they deserve. We bring each other up and help lay the groundwork to navigate the best path forward. Naturally, our community also delights in giving—and there’s no better time to do so than during the holiday season.

Whether you’re looking for a gift for your coworker, friend, sister or mother, the staff at Know Your Value has got you covered. We tapped our team for their best gift ideas—products that they themselves have come to know and love. They range from inspirational and confidence-boosting, to relaxing and practical. In some cases, they’re simply items that help make work or home life a little bit easier.

Know Your Value editors, writers and experts take care to recommend items we really like and hope you’ll enjoy! Just so you know, Know Your Value does have affiliate relationships. So, while every product is independently selected, if you buy something through our links, we may get a small share of the revenue.
