If you are looking for some ideas as to what to buy the ladies in your life then hopefully this gift guide will give you a little bit of inspiration. It is full of all the things that I love and would love to receive myself.
If, like me, the women in your life is a book worm then treating her to some new books is sure to be a win. You could play it safe and go with the newest title from her favourite author or pick something you know she hasn’t tried before, like a different genre or a debut novel by a new author. Hashtag Press are currently doing a Christmas bundle offer of 4 books for £30 from your choice of titles and each book will come beautifully gift wrapped in tissue and ribbon, along with a personalised Book Aid International Christmas Card.
A leather pencil case
Does the lady in your life love to write or maybe even colour? Does she take her own stationery to work with her or maybe work from home? Then how about a beautiful leather pencil case to add a bit of luxury to her working day. Having said that there is no reason why it has to be used as a pencil case as it is also the perfect size for a make up bag too. It is a stylish and practical gift that can be used everyday and is sure to make her smile this Christmas, especially as it comes beautifully presented in a colourful tote bag that can also be used for storing other things once the case is being used. This pencil case is from Scaramanga and is an incredible £11
If you are choosing to buy the above beautiful leather pencil case as a gift but want to use it as a make up bag instead then why not fill it up for her as an extra gift. Buying make up for someone else is never an easy task when it comes to foundations and concealers but you can always opt for mascaras, eye liners and a selection of coloured eye shadows from Gosh Copenhagen.
If you are looking for something to go along side a gift of make up or know you are buying for a make up lover but don’t want to go for the obvious make up gift, then how about some make up brushes. These eco friendly brushes from Ecotools are beautifully designed to look stylish whilst simultaneously doing their bit for the environment and are also vegan friendly. Ecotools have a number of gift sets available this Christmas including the warm winter glow brush set pictured below which retails for an amazing £19.99 at amazon .
If the woman in your life is creative and likes to make things, try new things, or set herself challenges than how about a crafting set like the make your own candles from Hobby craft for £10. It is a lovely gift idea that will not only keep her entertained but give her something she can actually use or put on display once completed too.
Chocolate Making set
For the creative, chocolate loving health conscious women among us then this set from Indigo Nutrition will really impress them. The set comes with everything they need to make their own tasty and nutritious pure chocolates including brazil nuts and goji berries for added taste and the cutest little paper cases to pop the individual chocolates in, just keep your fingers crossed she lets you sample them. You can order this gift and similar ones from Indigo Herbs for an amazing £19.99.
Most ladies like to wear perfume so why not treat them to a new scent. Seksy have three fragrances to choose from each one slightly different and aimed at a different type of lady. They have Entice, embrace and elegance all of which come bejeweled with a swarovski crystal. My personal favourite is Seksy entice which is delicate sweet pink fresh floral, fragrance has taken vibrancy to a new level, bursting with a blend of succulent Mandarin, Apricot & Blackcurrant fruits that lead into a flirtatious blend of Caramel with bright floral notes of Jasmine, Rose, Orange Blossom before settling on a delicious dry down of Sandalwood, Amber & Vanilla.
All three fragrances are available for £45 for 100ml or £35 for 50ml from Seksy beauty.
I personally love beauty products and smellies at Christmas and have rounded up a few beauty product ideas that I think will make lovely gifts. The kind of products that women don’t often buy for themselves but would love to receive as a treat.
The first one is this set is the Moroccan Hammam spa gift pack which contains Beldi Black Soap with Eucalyptus (200g), Rhassoul Clay (200g) from the Atlas Mountains and Argan Oil (50ml), all sourced from Morocco for an authentic Hammam experience, one of the oldest cleansing traditions in the world. This gift set is available by Vie naturals and is available from amazon for £18.95.
The second one is this hand lotion from SEAMS which retails for £14 and is a really luxurious hand cream melts into the skin, repairing and moisturinsing dry and dehydrated hands, perfect for the winter months.
Next up is the set for those that love to relax in the bath.
This Fuzzy Duck Winter Wonderland Luxury Gift Basket from Baylis & Harding even comes complete with a Christmas rubber duckie as well as 250ml mulberry and mistletoe body butter and 300ml frosted Christmas tree body wash. It can be purchased for £18 from amazon.
This gift idea is less of a generic set but a great one if you know she struggles to sleep and the products can be bought separately so you can make your own gift hamper with them if you wish, maybe add an eye mask and some chamomile tea bags to create the ultimate sleep tight gift box. The Magnesium sleep range from better you delivers an expertly blended combination of Magnesium Chloride, to help relax tired muscles and Lavender and chamomile, to slow sensory activity and quieten the mind, the perfect gift for someone that needs to step back and relax.
And last but not least for the beauty buys is this sunning Baylis & Harding Midnight fig and pomegranate sequin clutch bag gift set that will definitely stand out from the rest on Christmas morning and the bag of course can be re used too. The gift set itself contains 100ml shower gel, 100ml hand and body lotion and 100ml body spritz and is only £11.99 on Amazon and I can honestly say that the Christmas Baylis & Harding scents are fabulous this year.
Okay, so if the women in your life happens to be your gran then maybe this next one wont be for them, but if you are buying for Mrs Right, or even Miss Right now, then you have to check out the gorgeous sets available on Brastop.com. The prices are incredible but what’s even better is that their bras are sexy and available in sizes from a D and trust me sexy and D plus is hard to find elsewhere!
This stylish set of two clear geo glasses are only £13 from Root7 for the two clear ones and are perfect for any beverage, alcoholic or not. They are sure to be a talking point when offered up to friends when they pop round for a drink and of the clear ones don’t quite do it for you then check out the gold or black ones for a dash of colour.
Failing all of the above then my go to gift for anyone women would havahocolate and my newly discovered favourite chocolatier coco and heart is a must visit for any chocolate gifts. They offer a range of novelty chocolate ideas as well as luxurious flavoured bars such as these that are 3 for £10.
