The Christmas lights are already on in town centres up and down the country, the trees are springing up all along your street and that festive feeling is starting to permeate the air. This all also means that if you haven’t started your Christmas shopping yet, that it is high time that you did!
Out of all the gifts that we have to buy, we usually find the trickiest ones to find are those for the special women in our lives. No matter if you’re a man or a woman who is buying for their partner, sister, mum, friend or more, it can sometimes feel a little tricky to find just the right thing. Everybody wants their gifts to hit the mark and be truly appreciated so if you’re a bit stuck on what to buy her this Christmas season, here are just a few of our favourite fail-safe ideas.
Sure we all tend to be out and about a lot over the festive season, but when it’s all over there’s nothing quite like getting cosy in the comfort of our own home – there are after all a couple more months of winter to go! That’s why a cosy gift makes such a good idea for this time of the year.
We’re thinking sheepskin slippers, beautifully designed silky pyjamas and super soft blankets that’ll look great in any home. These types of cosy gifts are not only thoughtful, but you can be certain that they’re going to be used! Plus, as an added bonus, you don’t have to worry about things like suiting her style since although luxurious they are designed of course as home wear.
Especially if she’s got a rather hectic life with a million and one things always going on, then a great gift for her would be the chance to be spoiled rotten. Something like a day at a luxury spa where she can enjoy getting preened and pampered in gorgeous surroundings is ideal and will go down an absolute treat.
If you know that with her schedule squeezing in a spa sesh is going to be tricky, then how about something like a manicure or facial voucher? Taking just an hour or two, she’s going to love being beautified at your expense. Just remember to choose a local beauty salon that’s convenient to her.
There are also some gorgeous beauty products out there that promise to bring that spa experience to the home, so have a look out for foot massagers, luxury face masks and pampering bath products too. She is going to adore finding these under the Christmas tree!
After the over-indulgence that a lot of us partake in over the festive period (and love too!), getting active again in the New Year can be top of our resolutions. If you know that she loves being active or wants to become so, why not encourage her with a wonderful Christmas gift.
For a big over-the-top gesture, how about gifting her a classic retro style bike that will see her cycling all over town in a jiffy? Or perhaps dancing is more her thing in which case signing her up for a dance class or two will be a great idea. Original and practical, she’ll love that you’ve got her something she can’t wait to try this Christmas.
Jewellery is one of the most classic gifts that you can give a woman, and to someone especially close to you it is a wonderful gift since she’s going to treasure it forever. We’d say the most important thing to consider is of course her style, since you want her to love wearing it too. Keep an eye on the precious metals she wears and her preferred jewels.
To give a supremely thoughtful piece of jewellery to her this season, then we recommend buying something with her birthstone on it. These are really popular, and she is going to appreciate the fact that it was bought with just her in mind.
Obviously we have to include fragrances when we’re talking about gorgeous gifts for her! Another really classic type of gift, we’ve already discussed at length the season’s hottest fragrances here. Since there are so many beautifully packaged perfume gift sets around at this time of the year though, our advice is go that extra mile and splurge on one of these for the full scented experience. And as an additional advantage, gift sets often mean that you can get more for your money.
If you know that sports and exercise aren’t really her cup of tea, but you also know that she loves trying out new things, how about giving her the chance to get a bit creative with your gift. There are so many classes out there that will teach anything from sushi-making to pottery and everything in between, so you’re sure to find something that she can’t wait to try out!
With something like this, you can try it out as a pair meaning you can also enjoy spending some quality time together. Look out for local courses for things you know she would be interested in.
Especially at this time of the year, we love spoiling each other with generous gifts, and we hope that we’ve helped to give you a few ideas when you’re shopping for her.
