CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDES: FOR HER

The next round up in my Christmas Gift Guides is for Her. I have so many special ladies in my life that I need to get presents for this year, so I gathered a lot of you are probably in the same boat! Whether it's your mum, sister, grandmother or girlfriend; I've got it covered. One hefty guide; but there's sure to be at least one thing that is perfect for Her!

Ladies GUESS Rose Gold Watch - Chapelle - £99
A stunning designer watch with a large face and rose gold detailing. Bright white crystals make this watch stand out from the rest; making it feel glamorous to wear and impressive to pull your sleeve up to tell the time.



All ladies love lingerie, so it's always a good idea to get your girlfriend/wife some! Boux Avenue is a recent discovery of mine as I struggle to find high street shops that stock my cup size. However, after attending a recent press event with Boux Avenue, I saw they do bigger sizes and the designs just so happen to be really sexy too!


Tesco Beauty - Half price until Christmas Eve!
This is a brilliant range to shop if you are on a budget this year or have too many special ladies to buy for. Until Christmas Eve, you can enjoy shopping Tesco Beauty products with a half price offer until 24th December. This gorgeous Along Came Betty gift set featuring lotions and potions, is normally £20 - but you can grab it for just £10.  The Treacle Moon shower set is just £5 with this special offer!


For the geeky female in your life; treat them to a fun and quirky wireless mouth for them to surf the web with. There are a ton of different designs, including this cheeky flamingo print.


A great gift for any one who likes to fill their homes with calming aroma. No candle or flame is necessary as you just add the oil into the basin of the diffuser and plug it into the mains. The aroma from the oils fills the air and you can sit back and enjoy the fresh air.


Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Treats
Chocolate is always a good idea if you're stuck for gift ideas for just about anyone and for any occasion. However, there is something special about Ferrero Rochers; as they really remind me of Christmas! They have a ton of new product releases this year, including the Grand Rocher, Ferrero Shooting Star and Ferrero Cube. However, if in doubt, just get the box of classic Ferrero Rochers!


A wonderful gift idea for the lady in your life who delicately applies her makeup in the mornings. This mirror from Pebble Grey features a magnification mirror; perfect for concentrating on one aspect of the face. It also has a built in LED lamp around the edge of the mirror which lights the face for perfect makeup application. 


Avalon Organics  is a brand I had never heard of until recently. This particular gift set includes; a makeup removing gel and renewal cream; in a gorgeous gift set box. Definitely worth treating her to this!


Elizabeth Shaw Chocolates - £3.99
Posh chocolates are always a good idea if you're stuck for a gift idea for Her. These Elizabeth Shaw chocolates are super delicious and dangerously very moreish! The chocolates are individually wrapped in foil that are coloured to match the colour of the outside packaging. A really nice touch! Choose from Salted Caramel Crisp, Mint Crisp and Orange Crisp. Available at all independent stores.


Real Techniques Multi-task Set - £19.99
This limited edition multitask set has 3 brand new and exclusive brushes. With unique cuts and sizes, Her makeup is guaranteed to look better than anyone else's. Perfect for the beauty lover who always has room for new makeup brushes. It comes with an angled cut brush which is perfect for contouring, an extreme tapered brush for the cheeks and a tapered eye brush for eyeshadow or setting concealer with powder under the eyes. Available at Boots.


Natura Siberica Beauty Products
All women need shampoo and conditioner all year round, so why not stock up on some products for her to last a while! The Bath Foam comes in a giant 550ml bottle and is priced at just £4.30 - perfect for those ladies that enjoy a long, bubbly soak in the tub! Treat her to a 400ml bottle of the Protecting Shampoo, priced at £5.75. There is even a Protecting Conditioner priced at £6.10 for a 400ml bottle. Overall, a really nice range, rich in Vitamin E for nourishment.



w7 Beauty Products 
I have seen this makeup range popping up on beauty blogs recently and I have been dying to get my hands on some, but didn't know where to get them. Thankfully, they are available at www.justmylook.co.uk and are actually all reasonably priced products. The eye palettes come in tin packaging which I personally quite like.



Real Techniques Bold Metals Spotlight Essentials Collection - £40
Help draw attention to her gorgeous eyes and cheeks with the Bold Metals collection from Real Techniques. The brushes have extra long handles which make them super easy to hold and direct across the face. The set includes: an exclusive brush roll to transport and protect the brushes, 300 Tapered Brush, 102 Triangle Concealer Brush and a 203 Tapered Shadow Brush.


A gorgeous palette made up of warm red toned brown shadows and slightly more nude ones. This palette has every colour a woman could ever need for every day use; but also for more dramatic eye looks for the evening. 


Dorco Eve 6 Razor - £4.55
If you present a good quality razor to the lady in your life, prepare to be loved forever. There is nothing worse than cutting our legs in the shower by using a cheap and not so cheerful razor. I have been using this razor and I have to say, it's the best one I have ever used. Featuring a double 3 blade, a comfortable handle and shield to prevent those nasty cuts to the skin.


Monsoon Rose Gold Perfume (50ml) - £28.50
Top notes of lemon, soft fruits, ozonic layers of rose and base notes of woods, vanilla, musk and balsamic amber; prepare to blow her away with this gorgeous fragrance gift set from Monsoon. Packaged in a gorgeous rose gold bottle, in a white box with rose gold detailing; this one definitely stands out from the crowd.


Toni & Guy Hair Accessories
Toni & Guy have brought out their own range of different hair accessories. They are cool, funky and can be worn to jazz up just about any outfit. My particular favourites are the pom pom hair clips! How cute!  These also make great stocking fillers!


Graftons Beauty stocks a wide range of different beauty products all in one place. The Rose & CoBath Salts and Bath Soak are perfect gifts for ladies who love rose scented bath products. The bath soaks are so cute, right?

Cold Season Bath Salts smells really strongly of Eucalyptus because they are made for people who have colds. I haven't used them yet but I imagine this would be a great present for anyone who suffers from colds most of the year!


ABBA Hair Products- prices range between $17 and $36 depending on size.
I LOVE these! I just had to include them in my gift guide as I think any lady would love them as much as me. The Colour Protection Shampoo is really good for people who find their colour drains from their hair after just a few washes. As my hair is grey, it can wash out in just one wash; so this shampoo has been saving me quite a lot! The Moisture Conditioner smells and feels really minty to the scalp and completely nourishes my dry hair.


Tribe Fragrance - £24.99
The iconic 90s fragrance is back and better than ever before! Featuring a mix of juicy fruits, rose, jasmine and orange flower; the soft musks, creamy vanilla and cedarwood compliment the perfume really well. 


THE BODY SHOP Christmas Gifts
It was without a doubt that THE BODY SHOP would make a couple of appearances within my Christmas Gift Guides this year. They sent me over a whole bunch of things but my favourites by far are the Frosted Berries candle, body lotion and Cranberry scented body butter. Super delicious and will leave her smelling good enough to eat.


Glo & Ray Shimmer Shimmer Lipstick Set - £34 
If the special lady in your life loves lipsticks and experimenting with colours and different finishes, the Glo & Ray Shimmer Shimmer set is the perfect gift. Made up of three different shades, the lipsticks have a metallic and shimmery finish. Long lasting, moisturising and very pigmented; she's bound to apply these straight away and get ready to kiss you thank you!



Original Minerals Mini Styling Minerals Kit
Original Minerals is a recent discovery of mine and I love them! I have been using a shampoo and conditioner for blondes which I will write about soon, but for now I want to share with you this Mini Styling Minerals kit. Featuring three mini bottles of a detangling spray, thickening spray and sea salt spray; this fabulous kit is guaranteed to keep her locks looking the best they can look!


BRYT Skincare Products
This skincare brand is another recent discovery of mine and I have recently introduced it to my night time routine. The particular products I love are the cleanser, serum and night moisturiser. They are packed full of key soothing ingredients such as rose and chamomile; great for anyone with sensitive or spot prone skin. The packaging (if she is a sucker like me) is also really lovely and not like anything I have ever seen before!


I fully recommend this to anyone who is looking for a really good and purifying face mask. It smells very natural due to the charcoal ingredient, but it has done wonder to my skin recently. 


Lee Stafford Chopstick Styler - £16.99 Superdrug
This is AMAZING. Look out for my review coming soon. I tried this out on my sister who has super long and thick hair and the results are exactly like an 80's perm. The price really surprised me as it's so cheap compared to other tongs on the market. It's an all round winner in my opinion! 


Exclusive to Boots, these make great gift ideas for any age, but are especially perfect for teens and younger girls. They sent me over a wide selection of different products and all are really good. I have been trying out the Cheek Stamp which is amazing for a quick blush to the cheeks and the concealer is amazing at highlighting dark circles. 


It's a big one, right? Hopefully you have found a perfect gift for a special lady in your life. Next up in my Christmas guides is for Him - a short and sweet one!

Disclaimer: All products mentioned were sent to me in consideration to feature in my Gift Guides.
