First Leaf – This is the club for her if she likes tasting wines from all over the world! Bottles start at $5, and shipping is free.
Splash Wines – Very reasonably priced, and the wines are all top-notch. Plus, she’ll get to pick what type of wine she generally likes to drink.
Winc – This club is a bit more expensive, but they back their wine 100% guaranteed if she’s not satisfied. They also have tons of member perks.

16. GOLD BANGLES, DUH
A girl can never have too many gold bangles, so don’t worry if this gift idea seems kind of duh (obvious).
Now, the key to getting her the right bangle is really what this gift idea accomplishes. She may be wearing a ton of bangles on her wrist, but are they gold-plated or gold-filled?
Gold-plated jewelry is where a thin layer of gold is bonded onto a metal surface such as silver. Gold-filled jewelry items have several more gold coating layers, making them last longer and cost more.
Gold-filled jewelry often has a marking on the item that signifies the percentage, like 14 karats of gold. Gold-plated jewelry pieces have no markings.
Purchase gold-filled bangles at Erica Woolston.
17. JADE ROLLER GIFT SET
A jade roller gift set will be appreciated by anyone turning 30!
Jade rollers promote collagen, reduce dark circles, and calm inflammation in the face and lymph nodes.
