Let us guess: You have more than a few gifts left to check off your holiday giving list. And approximately 50 percent of them are for women. While everyone will tell you that women are "easy to buy for," there are only so many ordinary body washes, scented lotions, and jewelry trays you can get someone before she starts thinking: Generic.

Even though you don't yet have a gift in hand for all the women in your life, you can still pick up something that will wow them. When they open one of these up, they'll think: Perfect.

Hey, you might want to buy a couple of these for yourself!
