Who is madly doing their Christmas shopping? The smug few will be all finished and have all their gifts under the free and now enjoying all the parties and final preparations for the big day. If you’re like me, you’ll be madly darting to the shops and hitting the laptop to find some last minute gifts. We are off skiing on Friday and I really should be finished by now!! To help you out, I’ve come up with my ultimate gift guide for the ladies your buying for. All luxe pieces that I think any lady would be lucky to find under the tree on the 25th. I’m also finishing off my gift guides for the little people and the chaps and they’ll be coming up at the beginning of next week.
Even before becoming a mum, sleep was precious as was snuggling up on the sofa in my loungewear. So gorgeous silk PJs (these are Boden and also available in Navy) and sheepskin slippers are going to let any girl relax any unwind still feeling glamorous and looking gorgeous.
On the sleep theme, new mum’s and party girls alike are going to love This Works Bedtime Story gift set, including their Relaxing Bath Soak and Amazing Pillow spray to help you unwind and have an amazing rest however long they get to sleep for.
Beauty items are always a winner and there are so many beautiful gift sets to choose from this time of year - it can be difficult to choose which. My recommendation is to stick to brands you know and trust, then you can guarantee that the recipient is going to be pleased. Who doesn’t love Clarins? They have a beautiful range of Christmas gifts this year that come with a beautiful white waffle wash bag too. This is the Super Restorative collection - and being red makes it festive too.
Charlotte Tilbury make up is just beautiful and I am obsessed with this Dreamy Look in a Clutch gift set…this one isn’t going under the tree, he’s all mine! But stick to neutrals and naturals if you’re buying makeup gifts rather than going for anything ‘on-trend’.
I love Crabtree & Evelyn Hand creams, they are think and soothing,without being greasy and it always the brand I revet too. This beautiful best sellers gift set offers your loved-one a rainbow collection to try and find a new favourite.
Fragrance is always a beautiful gift, and very romantic too. Some new scents she’ll love as much as I do are My Burberry, Dear Rose Nymphessence and Jimmy Choo L’eau (launching in the New Year).
True love has to be jewellery. Again, gifting wise its best to keep it simple. I adore this bar necklace from Lucinda King and the simplest of silver bangles from Triwa. The beauty of Shore Project watches is the straps are interchangeable, so opt for a classic strap and she can then get creative with the rate of metal, leather, silicon and wool options on offer.
