I know what you’re thinking, not another Christmas Gift Guide. But, I know a lot of the men will have left a lot of Christmas Shopping a little…well, late. So, don’t worry because I’m here to rescue you.

If you’re looking for ideas of what to buy your mum, sister, grandma, girlfriend or wife this year – then I bet I’ve found you something perfect for them, whether that’s a stocking filler or the main event!

A lot of the time, gifts for her are generally harder to buy for than gifts for males. Once you’ve got an idea for men, you’re on to a winner. They’re generally easily pleased. Whereas women can be a little more difficult. That bubble bath you so lovingly picked out just might not be the right scent. That dress you were so keen on? Wrong size, wrong shape, wrong style. That jewellery you knew would be perfect? Never even left the box. Sometimes, well-meaning gifts end up being put to the side, not out of lack of effort, but because she might not have picked it out herself.

Don’t worry though, because this year, I’ve tried to compile a list of ideas that are sure to be loved. With a gift guide filled with travel luxuries, relaxed styles, the perfect candle and crowd-pleasing cosmetics, she’s sure to be enamoured by your gifts this Christmas.
