General as this title may sound, I promise there is something for all the women you are buying for in this post. Whether it is Granny who has everything, an Auntie who you don’t know what she likes or you are a guy reading this for wifey ideas, I have it covered. Lots of women at the recent fairs I was at, told me that they buy their own presents and then give them to the husband to wrap. That is RUBBISH guys. If you are reading this, one thing you can’t do wrong at Christmas is buying a gift for your other half that they haven’t asked for! (as long as you also get the item they have asked for!) It will pay dividends and everyone will be happy!
Below are some wonderful ideas that I have been saving in a Christmas 2017 file since January, so let’s go…
FOR THE FASHIONISTA
Rose Gold Monmatre Watch from Auree Jewellery £130
I am currently running competition to win this stunning watch over on Instagram but if you can’t wait for the results (Friday night) head over to Auree with code AUREEANGEL2 for 15% off all watches. Be warned, you will also be sucked in by the stunning jewellery too.
Bucket Bag with Detachable Aztec Strap from TLM Edit £55
Gorgeous bucket bag. Comes with plain strap too and smal zip up purse as well as detachable Aztec strap. Roomy and a perfect size to carry a laptop amongst other things!
Fur Cross Body Bag from TLM Edit £55
It speaks for itself. If the recipient is bold, bright, confident and likes to be different, this across body bag is for them.
Red Lips Tee from Bricks & Stitches £25
Worn with a blazer and jeans, this is cool. Also comes in aubergine lips or gold on black. Lush.
Liberty Initial Sweatshirt from Mary & The Guys £36
I love a bit of personalisation and coupled with Liberty print and a comfortable sweater, its quids in. Order now though for personalisation!
Gold Diamante Hoops from TLM Edit £22
No mistaking that hoops are in at the moment and with cubic zirconia encrusted throughout, it would be hard for the recipient not to appreciate these gorgeous earrings.
Personalised Family Tote in Navy & Neon from Marloe London £65
Speaking of personalisation, this bag from Marloe is so useful, sturdy and smart. The navy makes it work int eh winter and the neon trim makes it perfect for the summer too. Win win!
Velvet Cactus Wallet from TLM Edit £32
Super soft and sturdy wallet that’s a bit different from the leather ones that are doing the rounds at the moment.
Pony & Gold Foldover Clutch from Sarah Bailey £175
Sarah’s clutches are a magpie’s heaven. I love the silver and pink on this one…
My Year Sweatshirt from On The Rise £70
If you think your recipient is proud of the year they were born this is a pretty cool present. Choose the colour sweat and the colour date.
Personalised Polo Belt from pampeano £65
I was the lucky recipient of one of these last year and despite wearing it alot, it is still as good as new. Super smart and loads of colours and fabrics to choose from too.
Leather & Glitter Cuff from The Alex Edit £25
Filled with gorgeous sparkly goodies, my pick from The Alex Edit this Christmas is one of her fab cuffs.
So funky, I can’t handle it. Have you ever seen anything like it? Definitely not for the retiring amongst us!
Slogan Sweat from FWP by Rae at The Alex Edit £45
The newest top from FWP BY Rae is another must-have. Thicker than the best-selling Premier Cru tops, these are incredibly soft and so comfortable to wear (the cut is fabulous), the logo references Cru Bourgeois wines from the Medoc region of Bordeaux that didn’t quite make the official Classé certification of 1855.
4 in 1 Bracelet from TLM Edit £30
If you have ea rock chick who wants to pack a punch with her wrist candy, this bracelet is for her. Pick and choose which ones to wear, but if you are like me- where all at the same time!
FOR THE STATIONARY LOVER
A Year of Cards from Ellie Good Illustrations
Never be caught out by the ‘Oh, sxxt, it’s tomorrow’ card-shopping-panic ever again! Lasting you a whole year this economical pack of 40 greetings cards includes 17 different designs for as many different events. The cards have been lovingly illustrated, printed on recycled card and are a snip at only 88p each. Envelopes are included. This is absolutely genius – I love them and every busy women in the world should have a box.
Insect Note Cards Set from Ele Grafton
These beautifully drawn insect cards are perfect to write a quick thank you note on and would make a lovely stocking filler.
Tinkerlink Phone Cover from Giftpop from £32.50
These have swarmed Instagram this year. Super fun and with the ability to choose your own finish, colour and charm – each one is unique – unless you are really unlucky!
Letter Writing Set by Anna Wright £12.50
Encourage old school letter writing with this lovely poppyhead paper and envelope set.
FOR THE BEAUTY LOVER
Take it from me, El&So works. It gently takes off the rubbish accumulated on your face from the day and rehydrates and nourishes. I love it and highly recommend it. Once you try it, you will become hooked and it is so mice to think this is made by hand.
2400 Watt is a high power hair dryer putting professional power in the hands of you with a super fast drying ability. Ionic Technology gives a benefit of this is that the cuticle of your hair becomes smooth, giving you a gloriously smooth finish.
Radiance Boost Duo from Caudalie £45
With dry weather and dehydrating activities (cough cough) this December, this would be a very welcome present for someone who likes looking after their skin.
FOR THE FOODIE
Sea Salted Caramels from Caragh Chocolates £13.99
Nestled between Guernsey and Jersey, Caragh make all their chocolates by hand, in their kitchen surrounded by breathtaking vistas, coastal paths and secret bays. The chocolates are exquisite – buy yourself a box too. Just because…
Make Me Blush Rose £13.99
Swimwear designer Veronica joked to her wine-producing Italian father that the only way she’d get into the wine business is if he made her a Rosé – so he did. This sophisticated style from Piemonte, Italy is good fun – I can certainly imagine enjoying a bottle (or two) with the girls next time the sun is shining or not shining – it doesn’t matter. The handy bottle top makes this a great option for picnics too.
FOR THE HOUSE PROUD
Lumitrix Gift Box starts from £25
Everyone loves a piece of art – but best to let them choose it. A beautifully presented gift box from Lumutrix would be a wonderful gift to enable freedom of choice to your recipient. There are so many wonderful photographic prints to choose from, that may be the hard choice!
Home Declutter Kit by Helen Sanderson £39
Helen’s Home Declutter Kit offers a simple, easy way to detox your living space and clear clutter from your life – fast! If you’re into healthy living you’ll be familiar with the notion of detoxing or purging the body, so consider this a handy tool to help you do the same on the home front.
Brilliant if the recipient needs a little nudge in the right direction!
Liberty Print Pillow Cases from Poppy & Honesty £57 for a pair
So pretty and all handmade to an excellent seamstress with fab taste. I love these – they would make a spare room.
Glad Tidings Scented Candle from Tussie Mussie £32
It was hard to choose which candle to include as they all smell delicious but seeing as it is Christmas this one seems most appropriate, although if you are buying for a loved one ‘Love Story’ would be lovely too. All handmade by Natasha at her home, they are lovingly made and packaged beautifully.
I hope this has given you some ideas. Please let me know if you have any other recommendations!
Lots of love
