Gift Guide for Ladies

now after we tackled gifting for gents its time for us ladies. way easier for me obviously and so much fun because I like picking something things I would love too or some I already own and know someone else would love just as much. it sometimes hard to not buy after a “one for you one for me” scheme but I just love gifting too much and there’s nothing better than buying something nice for a person you love. obviously the perfect gift for you best friend/sister/mum/girlfriend has to fit her personality, your budget and what you actually want to give and buy and maybe you are lucky enough to have christmas list written by a lady in your life and if not or if you want to pick something else too, take this gift guide as an inspiration as to what I think might be lovely, no matter if you want a main gift or something extra I’lli’ll hope you find something someone else will love and maybe theres something in here for yo too.
let’s start with fashion. gifting a clothing item or an accessory can be hard because you have to be sure about someone’s size and style but it can make such an amazing gift. if you have watched my latest Zara haul you would have seen that I picked up the most perfect celestial print midi dress and its pure perfection and I would be over the moon to receive something like it. also, I think with accessories like shoes and bags you can play it a bit safer. there’s no need to bash out on a designer bag because there are so many nice ones out there. mine is from Primark but Topshop, Zara and river island do such nice ones too. shoes can also make a great gift. my pearl boots are Zara.
home wear and lifestyle items are probably some of my favourite gifts to buy and receive. mugs, pillows, throws and other kitchen items as well as candles like a very luxe diptyque vanille one or a nice makeup bag make such great gifts.
now for beauty, there’s so much you can buy and I have quite a few picks. for a good bath time, I highly recommend lush Christmas items like the snowman bubbleroon and the vanilla chai range from the body shop. it smells so good, you almost want to eat it. makeup wise I feel like everything charlotte tilbury will do the job. my favourite lipstick has to be pillow talk and if you want to go for more of a gift set they had this set of mini lipsticks which is so cute and perfect to introduce someone to a brand and for eyeshadow palette lover the instant eye palette is a must. NARS is also one of my favourite brands to use and their liquid highlighter in Copacabana is my fave and would make the perfect gift. also for a small extra or stocking filler, Essie nail polishes would be my pick. one thing I absolutely love to receive and hardly buy for myself is a nice perfume. last year I bought myself the tom ford black orchid and it’s so lovely. very deep and feminine and a luxe perfume makes such a nice gift, for sure.
if you are looking for a big present, something tech can be your choice. I recently got the iPhone 8 plus and I’m obsessed with it. in the past, I have got big things like my canon 70d for Christmas as the main gift and it was perfect, but is not a must, of course.
so I hope this gift guide inspired you and I hope you found something for yourself or to give to someone else.
