Christmas Gift Guide: For Her

I always find when putting together Christmas gift guides when it comes to compiling the items to be featured in the women's gift guide I inevitably end up taking inspiration from things I've seen that I would like myself! Even when buying for friends or family with similar taste to yourself it can become tricky when you feel like you've exhausted all your ideas or they already seem to have everything so here's a few ideas to suit a range of budgets to hopefully help you out if you're stuck for what to buy...

Christmas Gift Guide: For Her

1. Foldaway Overnight Bag - Cath Kidston - £40.00
2. Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Trio - Selfridges - £29.00
3. Kate Spade Metro Mini Watch - John Lewis - £150.00
4. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Twist & Spray Eau de Parfum - Debenhams - £76.00
5. Panda Slippers - Accessorize - £12.00

If you're buying for someone who travels a lot these foldaway holdalls from Cath Kidtson are ideal. They fold up into a small pouch meaning you can easily pop them inside another bag if you're planning to buy lots to bring back from a trip. I bought one in summer and it has since come in really handy and holds all your essentials for a weekend away. There's lots of different patterns to pick from too. Charlotte Tilbury has stormed the beauty circuit over the last year with her new launches, concept stores and rose gold packaging. This lipstick trio looks like a lovely gift for beauty lovers and contains 3 smaller sizes of some of the brand's most popular shades. I have to give a shout out to one of my favourite bloggers and vloggers, Brogan Tate xo for mentioning that Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum is available in a twist and spray design. It's one of my all time favourite scents and I was so happy to discover you could purchase it in the twist and spray as I always worry about packing the bottle when going away in case it smashes but with the twist & spray you can easily pop it in your bag. It'd be ideal for topping up during the day or on nights out too. It's definitely on my list to Santa this year!

Christmas Gift Guide: For Her

6. Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Scented Candle - Selfridges - £42.00
7. Liz Earle Sparkling Skin Duo - Liz Earle - £28.00
8. Travel Wallet - Aspinal of London - £125.00
9. Fragrance Mist Gift Set - Victoria's Secret - £21.79
10. Hot Chocolate Gift Set - Whittard of Chelsea - £20.00

I think I've doubled my skin care collection over the last 12 months. I'm constantly drawn in by new products claiming to improve my skin. One of the best purchases I've made is the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, I don't know why it took me so long to get round to trying it! The 'Sparkling Skin Duo' gift set from Liz Earle contains their renowned Cleanse & Polish, Skin Tonic and a pair of muslin cloths. It'd make a great gift as an introduction to some of the brands most popular products. The Skin Tonic is a toner spray which leaves your skin feeling really refreshed once you've cleansed. There's lots of gorgeous gifts available at Aspinal of London but I think the travel wallet would make a really lovely present especially if the lucky recipient has any upcoming holidays booked! There's a wide range of colours to choose from and there's space to store tickets, boarding passes, passport and any other documents as well as a zipped compartment for currency. It'd keep all your important travel documents secure and prevent having to keep switching between purses looking for currency once arriving at your destination. I love the fragrances from Victoria's Secrets. Although their prices aren't quite as cheap here in the UK as buying in the US you can often find deals such as 3 for £24 on their fragrance mists, I just wish there were more UK stores! I love receiving sets like the Fragrance Mists Gift Set for Christmas as it means you get to try out some of the fragrances you might not have had before and they are a great size for travelling and popping in your bag. This set contains my favourite 'Bombshell' which has a fruity and floral scent.

Christmas Gift Guide: For Her

11. Shopping Organiser - Paperchase - £6.00
12. This Works Dream Team - Feel Unique - £10.00
13. Paisley Print Wrap - Oasis - £29.00
14. Benefit Pump up the Party Set - Boots - £29.50
15. Gold Sequin Pouch - Oasis - £20.00

I hadn't tried anything by This Works until the last 12 months but their Deep Sleep Pillow Spray has become one of my essential products (I'll be doing a full review post in the new year) and something I'll definitely repurchase when my current one runs out. The 'Dream Team' set contains a mini version of the pillow spray and a mini stress less roll on. They'd make a great gift for anyone who has trouble sleeping or relaxing. If you're looking to buy something different from a traditional scarf how about a blanket wrap? They adorned the catwalk at fashion week and can be worn in a variety of ways. I really like the classic paisley print and black and grey tones in this wrap from Oasis. It's really well priced at £29.00 too. I always seem to end up buying one of the Benefit Christmas sets each year either for a gift or as a gift to myself! They're great value and allow you to try out some of their products without committing to buying the full size. The 'Pump up the Party Set' contains everything you need for getting ready for a night out and features some of their bestselling products including a mini porefessional, rollerlash, high beam, benetint lip and cheek stain, rockateur blush and an eyeshadow palette complete with brush.
