80 Unique Gifts for Women That Love Pop Culture

Christmas is a fun time of year. The smell of pine and baked goods is everywhere (along with those cinnamon-scented pine cones), our favorite holiday movies reappear as TV specials and the prospect of surprising your special someones with Christmas gifts gets people to start planning their holiday shopping. Sometimes Christmas shopping is easy because you know exactly what you're looking for, but there are times when you hop from one Christmas gift guide to the next looking for inspiration. We're happy to help you find something fun and different this year, so check out this awesome list of unique Christmas gifts for women!

If you're shopping for Christmas gifts for your gal pal, sister, mom, girlfriend, aunt or any other girl with a love for pop culture, she is absolutely going to love these unique licensed jackets for women. Pop culture apparel has been a thing for quite some time, but back in the day, it was usually only for t-shirts and sweatshirts with the occasional pair of socks or underwear. Now that there are more nerdy apparel options, she's going to love letting her nerd card show on the outside with these stylish jackets! Many of these licensed jackets have embroidered patches, character colors or fun, printed linings that set them apart from normal outerwear. These light jackets are also great Christmas gifts for her because they can be worn indoors with layered apparel looks during colder winter months, or used as jackets and outerwear during transitional spring and fall months.

Quirky Leggings for Women

There is nothing plain about these leggings. These days it feels like every woman has a pair of neutral black leggings, so having one wild pair of leggings for wearing out or wearing around the home is certainly warranted. (At least we'd like to think so!) Not only do printed leggings make a great holiday gift, but they're also great birthday gift ideas too.

While it can be bittersweet to get an ugly Christmas sweater for Christmas when it's too late to wear it for the holiday, we'd like to argue that these pop culture ugly Christmas sweaters can be worn on more than one day per year! Your loved one or friend can stay warm and cozy all winter long with these unique apparel gift ideas. There are lots of ugly sweater styles to choose from too! They can wear their favorite fandoms loud and proud from Disney to Star Wars, Labyrinth, The Magic School Bus and more. These ugly sweaters are some of our favorite pop culture gifts.

If your special someone wants loungewear and other comfy stuff for Christmas, there are plenty of fun and comfortable women's Christmas gift ideas for something that's a little different from the usual pajama sets. There are a wide variety of kigurumi pajamas and union suits, and the best part about these items is that they're technically unisex so they could even be a funny couples' gift idea. You can also get plenty of other pajamas, but we really like these Harry Potter varsity house PJ sets. (Don't worry Potter fans, as they also have pajama sets for Hufflepuff, Slytherin and Gryffindor too!) Other cozy Christmas gifts include licensed slippers, licensed scarves and some licensed dolman shrugs. Your gift recipients will love snuggling up in these fun gifts for women while chilling and watching their favorite movies and tv shows.

Bags and purses are a necessity for women, especially due to the fact that leggings are in style. (Many women are finding themselves without pockets!) There are tons of cool purse options from a variety of movies, TV shows, comics and video games. However, there are plenty of other bag styles if your gift recipient prefers mini backpacks, regular backpacks or even if she's looking for a duffel bag. Her gym buddies will certainly be jealous after seeing her new house Targaryen gym bag!
