Well, there’s little over three weeks to go before the big man in red comes down the chimney (or, if you’re like us, through the front door with his magic key!). Many of us are getting well and truly stuck into our Christmas shopping, but if you’re stuck for gifts for the woman in your life, take a look at my picks for the 2017 Christmas Gift Guide!
Christmas Gifts for Women
Three Colourway Scarf – £69
How beautiful is this? The ingenious three colourway scarf from Touch London comes in a variety of colour schemes, but I particularly loved this Warwick one with a rich rustic theme -blue teal, old gold and warm rusty. It’s made from 100% soft woollen yarn.
Well, hello cheeky Mr Penguin! This little chap is perfect for women who want (or need!) a bit of leg-trembling pleasure. It’s waterproof (so you can sneak him into the shower or bath for some grown-up time!), it has speed controls, it’s rechargeable and quiet. It’s size and shape lets you explore different sensations and interests.
I may or may not have told my 5-year-old when I accidentally opened the box in front of him that it is an ear wax cleaner…
So Divine Vibrating Bullet -£6.99
Staying on the ‘grown-up toys’ theme, these little vibrating bullets from So Divine! are just £7.99 each. You can pick them up alongside your groceries in some of the major supermarkets (I did laugh when finding the link for this – it told me people who bought this also bought green beans!).They come in three colours: Thinkin’ Bout You Red, Halo Rose Gold and Need You Tonight Silver. They’re just £6.99 each and they’re waterproof, quiet and have a powerful single speed vibration. Ticks all the boxes, yes?
Phone Case – £29.95
If you’re anything like me, your phone spends just as much time falling out of your hand and bouncing off the floor as it does staying in your hand, especially if you have kids with a penchant for watching Ryan’s Egg Surprises on YouTube. These ultra-thin gem phone cases from Tech 21 offer 2m drop protection and come in pretty, dazzling shades of rose, green and lilac.
Willow Tree Figurine – £16.99
Show your appreciation to the woman in your life with this gorgeous Willow Tree figurine. It’s simple and heartfelt, as well as being very pretty!
It was news to me that Accessorize and Monsoon did a range of fragrances, but my god, I’m glad I now know! As you can expect, the bottles are both gorgeous enough to be displayed on any dressing table, but they both smell damn lush as well. I’m not very good at describing all the different layers of scent in them, so here’s the official description for you
Monsoon Rose Gold: opens with juicy top notes of citrus, rich floral heart notes and decadent woods which combine to create a feminine and sensual scent – creating a beautiful, rich aroma.
Accessorize Love Lily: pens with notes of raspberry and orange invigorated with a zesty accord of bergamot. At its heart, Muguet (lily of the valley) combined with Jasmine work together to add a fresh and floral depth. Aromatic musks and sweet vanilla are united at the core.
Buff Hat – £30.76
Everyone needs a decent woolly hat for the winter, and this is it I reckon. It’s a mix of acrylic, wool and alpaca, so it’s uber cosy and snuggly as well as being perfect for covering up bad hair days. It’s a slouch fit and available in four different colours.
Cam’Pouch – £12.00
It’s a makeup bag, jewellery pouch, pen tidy, travel case…actually, it could be pretty much whatever you wanted it or needed it to be. It comes in two pretty designs (this is the botanical print) and is really handy. I’ve been using it to pop my makeup in to take on weekend’s away and it is surprisingly roomy!
Novella Nostalgia Short Stories – £5.97 for the Kindle
These short stories were inspired by the silver screen’s favourite and most iconic stories. They’re short, so perfect for those moments in between school runs or whilst you’re stuck in the car with a napping toddler (yes, that happened to me today!) and just want a quick but heartwarming read.
For a coffee addict like me, this is the perfect gift. These aluminium capsules are compatible with Nespresso machines and are an excellent way of trying new coffees without spending a fortune or compromising on taste and quality.
Nelson’s Massage Oil -£8.11
Nelson’s Calendula Cream – £7.28
The Nelsons bath and massage oil can be poured into a bath for a deeply relaxing soak – perfect for after all the stress of the festive season or used as a massage oil to soothe aching muscles. The Calendula cream is an absolute staple in my eyes. It’s a multi-purpose, highly moisturising cream for rough, dry, flaky or chapped skin – ideal for winter skincare!
Initial Mug – £14.50
Y’all know what a sucker I am for mugs and for personalised stuff – so a personalised mug? YAY! This bone china mug features bold typography and there’s room for extra personalisation if you want it.
If once you have bought your Christmas gifts you’re a bit time strapped, have a think about using a courier service. The courier comparison site My ParcelDelivery can help you find the cheapest courier services around and can help take away some of that festive stress! If you are wanting to use a courier service, make sure that none of your gifts are on the list of restricted and prohibited items before sending them, and read up on some top tips on how to package your parcels correctly to ensure that your gifts are safe and sound on their journey! There are countless courier services available, meaning that there will always be one to suit your needs. Skip the trip to the Post Office and take your parcels to a designated drop-off point if using a courier such as UPS. Alternatively, use an express service by Parcelforce to have your presents collected from your very own front door. Make sure to check out the last delivery dates before the big day to avoid disappointment and try to enjoy doing your Christmas shopping… as stressful as it may be!”
