Veggie Dip Sets, $7.95
Eating healthy is challenging enough without having to pull a sad plastic bag of baby carrots out of the break-room fridge. But she'll be the envy of the office when you fill these on-the-go veggie-shaped snackers with sliced veggies and her favorite dip.
Hip & Humble, multiple locations, HipAndHumble.com

Initial Medallions, $38
Unless she goes into the Witness Protection Program and has to change her name, this is perhaps the one piece of jewelry that she'll be able and proud to wear at any age, at any time. Unique without being gaudy, the bronze medallions also available to order from local jewelry maker Katie Waltman in every letter of the alphabet—your time has finally come, Quintana and Uma.
Katie Waltman Jewelry, 962 E. 900 South, Salt Lake City, 385-227-8977, KatieWaltman.com

Outlander Tartan & Kilt Pin, $64
A side effect of watching Starz's new show Outlander is developing a desire to go back in time to the Scottish highlands and meet an attractive clansman. Edinburgh Castle will get your significant other halfway to being as attractive as Jamie Fraser, with a Fraser clan kilt pin inscribed with the motto Je Suis Prest, and lambswool clan scarves in the authentic MacKenzie tartan.

Edinburgh Castle, 124 S. Main, Salt Lake City, 801-364-1406, EdinburghCastle.com

Cosset Body Butter, $20
A tiny amount of this rich butter goes a long way on even the driest skin, thanks to its all-natural makeup: oils from avocado and macadamia nuts, and cocoa, shea, mango and kokum butters.
Cosset Bath & Body, 602 E. 500 South, Trolley Square, Salt Lake City, 801-923-4626, Facebook.com/CossetBathAndBody

Booze Bamboozlers, $14.95
The ladies in your life know that one of the few, few benefits of "surfing the crimson wave" is that no security guard will dip his fingers into a pile of tampons. You can further her exploitation of men's squeamishness with these shot holders, disguised as realistic-looking tampons, complete with wrappers. If beer is more her style, the bottle of sunblock is perfect for music festivals or pool time.
Cabin Fever, Trolley Square, 602 E. 500 South, Salt Lake City, 801-363-0828, CabinFeverCards.com

Scented Hairbrush, $14.95
Know someone who snoozes till the last possible minute of the morning, then rushes out the door looking unkempt and frazzled? Give her a reason to slow down for a minute with a glittery Sweetlocks hairbrush, which provides the double-whammy benefit of detangled hair and a soft, fruity fragrance that's activated during brushing. The suitor she's been avoiding will never know that she didn't actually stay home to wash her hair the night before.
Bloomingsales, 1358 Foothill Drive, Salt Lake City, 801-583-9117, ShopBloomingsales.com

Recoil Winder, $9.99
Your roommate the gadget king is a great asset when you're in desperate need of a charger, but you're sick of detangling the snarls of cords to find the headphones he borrowed, or tripping over his laptop/camera/iPad chargers when you get up from the couch. Make his life (and yours) easier with the Recoil Winder, a Park City-made product that keeps cords of all sizes accessible but contained. Just pull to extend the cord for charging; when you're through, the Recoil retracts the cord back into place.

Hand-knit Pow, Bam Gloves, $35
Fingerless gloves will allow her fight off the cold while retaining the dexterity needed to fight crime. And these colorful hand-knit gloves even provide their own sound effects.

Two Dancing Cats, 1790 S. 1100 East, Salt Lake City, 801-485-0554

Weapon Ties, $28.99
There seem to be two kinds of ties: serious corporate-stooge ties, and silly corporate-stooge-on-casual-Friday ties with patterns of cartoon ducks or baseballs. These noir-ish ties are perfect for the man who doesn't fit in either box but who still has occasion to tie one on—maybe to complete his onstage look for his new death-folk band.
