For the busy entrepreneur: Thrive, by Arianna Huffington

With inspiring readers like Lean In’s Sheryl Sandberg, this #1 New York Times Best Seller is the ultimate stocking stuffer for the perennially exhausted. Thrive is packed with candid stories from Arianna Huffington, who details her personal wake-up call — a broken cheekbone that she sustained after falling over in an accident brought on by exhaustion and lack of sleep.

For the light sleeper: This Works Deep Sleep Night Oil

The rules of sleep are pretty simple: get between seven to nine hours or you’ll start to feel a little — let’s face it — nuts. Once you’ve been schooled on what could happen if you skip sleep in the relentless pursuit of ‘having it all’ (see Thrive, above) you’ll be searching for ways to get back to basics. Aptly named, This Works Sleep Night oil is a deeply relaxing indulgence, and one that your friend is unlikely to invest in for herself — so why not buy it for her? The fragrant formula is made up of Patchouli, Lavender, and Chamomile essential oils, as well as Coconut and Ho Wood oils. Expect a thank you call by morning.

For the corporate class act: Smythson 2017 W1 Diary

Understated, pragmatic, and a little bit fancy, the Charlotte in your life wants a Smythson — trust us. Made in England, Smythson of Bond Street is synonymous with London nobility, and seasonal pops of color like this Smythson’s Nile blue keep things fresh and fun. The textures, like cross-grain lambskin, are always luxurious, making this diary an upmarket addition to any desk. The day-per-page layout and large dimensions make this notepad both functional and statement piece. She’ll wonder how she ever did without it.

For the focused friend: Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8

The perfect pair of headphones is somewhat of an enigma. They should be sturdy, stylish and, above all, comfortable. But in an age where Apple ditched wires altogether to give us buds that resemble earplugs, why would you go bigger? Two words: noise cancelling.

In this day and age, chances are you work in an open plan office — or freelance from a café. But wherever you are, there’s likely to be an amount of office ‘banter’ and distraction to contend with. Noise cancelling headphones do wonders for your focus, especially when combined with white noise podcasts, which can be streamed for free on Spotify. Wireless headphones also make the movement required for flexible, on-the-go working just so much easier. Tech aficionados at CNET likened the cushioned speakers to ‘marshmallows’ for your ears. Delicious.

For the significant executive in your life: The Apple Watch Hermès Series 2

Equal parts stylish and innovative, the Apple Watch Series 2 is the perfect stocking stuffer for the woman who has it all. Inspired by Hermès’ ephemeral timepieces, the slender, luxurious smartwatch comes with GPS, 50-meter water resistance, and signature orange sports band. Download productivity app Evernote so she can update her To Do list right from the bright and beautiful screen on her wrist.
