While store shelves may be flooded with flowers, mugs, and customized picture frames, those (albeit the most obvious) aren't the only gift options for the women in your life. Clothing retailers are great if you know your mom's size, and a gift card to her favorite store can be a quick and thoughtful solution — but one of the more surprising routes comes in the form of the unique gifts you can find on Amazon.
Boutiques and brick-and-mortar department stores are no longer the be-all-end-all of gift shopping, which means that you can easily widen your selection if you opt to shop online. That said, even for those who regularly purchase their toiletries, work supplies, and food on Amazon, the retailer's wide selection of chic and interesting gifts can come as a bit of a shock.
Amazon's chic housewares and luxury beauty finds often fall under the radar, but specifically when the day is quickly approaching and you're running out of time, these items make for incredible gifts. If you're a member of Amazon Prime, eligible items can be on your doorstep in under two days — and you won't have to pay extra for shipping. These unique gifts for stylish women are interesting, yet practical, and the vast majority of them are suitable for last-minute purchases.
1. A Chic Essential Oil Diffuser
With its wood-grain base and color-changing tapered top, this diffuser is as practical as it is attractive.

2. An Anti-Theft Purse That Doesn't Scream "Tourist"
