Every Christmas my husband tells me I’m difficult to buy for. He tells me I have everything already and so buying gifts is impossible. It’s really not. This is why I’ve put together a gift guide to show partners, friends and relatives that there’s always something you can buy that she will love.
These products have all been tested and we receive no commission so you can shop knowing we’ve chosen them for their quality, style and good value. As always there are some out of the box suggestions, but many have agreed that they would love to receive these in their Christmas stocking. Here’s our 2017 gift ideas for her at Christmas.
Scentered Ultimate Sleep Set
Scentered is becoming more popular year after year and it’s easy to see why. This sleep set really does indulge and relax and it smells absolutely divine. Give a little luxury and the gift of a good night’s sleep with the gift set that includes a candle, a stress roll on and a lovely eye mask in lilac.
The Organic Shop – Body Desserts
We have never see a body scrub so generously sized than the body peeling cream from the Organic Shop. It smells delicious and gives a great all over scrub, leaving skin smooth and polished. The body butters are also great quality, and a trio would make her day this Christmas.
Sleep Elixir from 320 MHz
The Sleep Elixir from 320 MHz is one of the most decadent gifts to give this Christmas. It’s the perfect blend of oils and nutrients to nourish skin overnight, and she will absolutely adore it. It can be added to an existing skincare regime and used once a week to treat skin. She’ll wake up refreshed and moisturised, and no doubt searching for more 320 MHz goodies online!
The Ecotools are soft, gentle and sustainable. What more could she wish for from wooden makeup brushes? Every woman needs more makeup brushes in their life, as washing them can be a drag. Choose tools with a conscience that are kind to skin, in this gorgeously presented gift pack.
Elvie Pelvic Floor Trainer
We were a little skeptical about the Elvie Pelvic Floor Trainer at first, isn’t it a little too personal? It seems not, as we asked our readers and many would love this in their stocking this Christmas. It connects to an app to remind you to perform your pelvic floor exercises and it really does deliver incredible results. We found that those embarrasing leaks ceased with the pelvic floor trainer (we all know the ones, where we lose a little with a cough or a sneeze, admit it), while partners commented on the tightness of muscles after only a week’s use. No matter the age, if she’s had children, this is a great present, albeit quite personal. The Elvie pelvic floor trainer wins one of our Top Product Awards.
There are a lot of foot abrasion tools on the market but this one stands out as it uses glass to create smooth feet and heels. It feels great and isn’t too hard on feet. We love it.
Micro Scooter – Mint Micro speed
This may seem like a silly idea, and we were a little resistant at first but please take our advice and buy her a micro scooter. You won’t regret it. The commute to the office in Canary Wharf has never been so much fun and with this little scooter, it’s easy to zip to work faster than anyone. It’s so lightweight and dinky that it isn’t a hindrance, while it’s sturdy enough to carry a substantial weight. If we had to pick one present for our Christmas list, this would be it. We love it.
Nicky Clarke Supershine Rose Straightener
The super shine rose straightener from Nicky Clarke makes our list as it operates a little differently from common straighteners. It uses steam to straighten the hair, which leaves tresses, soft, supple and manageable, as well as super straight. It delivers a more natural look without burning the hair shaft, and hair felt a lot healthier within a week compared to the usual straighterners we use. It looks amazing and reaches the impressive heat of 235 degrees (which we didn’t need). We think this is the best straightener this season.
Lanaiblo hairdryer – personalised
This super speedy, super sleek hairdryer can be personalised with her name, making it a brilliant personalised styling product to give this Christmas. Alongside this impressive feature it’s also a great hairdryer, delivering a good blast to dry hair quickly and simply, saving time on the morning routine.
Soohyang Beeswax Tablet
As soon as we opened the box of the Soohyang Beeswax tablet we were blown away with the aroma. The scent transported us to white sandy beaches, tropical fragrant flowers and a fresh summer breeze. It’s delicious. It’s used to fragrance clothes in a subtle scent, and we’re very impressed. We want one of these for every drawer, every clothes rail, as it gently perfumes clothes with such a sophisticated scent.
Oral B Genius 9000
When we asked our readers what they would like for Christmas a lot of them mentioned an electric toothbrush. We think we’ve found the perfect one! It’s soft but strong, thorough and attractive, it looks great on the bathroom shelf. It also gives brilliant results and delivers a superior clean. We love it.
Bod Mermaid Bath Shimmer
Bod Mermaid bath shimmer promises to help you with pre party prep as it rids your body of water retention in the bath. The bath looks amazing and glitters like a mermaid’s translucent tail, while the salts smell divine and give the water a soft feel. It really does slim the figure as it detoxifies the body. These are bath salts she will love this Christmas.
Medik 8 Skin Glow Oil
We fell in love with Medik 8 a while ago and now we’re reminded why. This super charged oil really does make skin glow while providing it with all the nutrients it needs to be healthy and fresh. We prefer to use it at night so it can get to work while we sleep but it’s perfect for a foundation free look during the day. A fantastic stocking filler any woman would love to receive.
Skin Doctors Beelift
Skin Doctors keep widening their range due to the popularity of their products and with the eye lift and skin lift it’s easy to see why. Using bee venom and honey these products really work and leave skin tighter but soft and supple. They really do work, and we’re in love.
Urban Veda Soothing Body Ritual
This mini set from Urban Veda is the ideal stocking filler for a friend. Urban Veda favourites are in miniature making it a wonderful introduction to the brand.
Every woman should have a set of Impress nails on standby as they’re reliable and very easy to use. Even those who don’t like acrylic nails will love the sets from Impress as they last and look a million dollars. A perfect present for the stocking or secret Santa.
Sharon White Stationary
The cards from Sharon White stationary make the perfect gift. With messages such as “Hey”, they are ideal for her to send a note to a best friend. We love the colourful envelopes and think a few of these cards would make a lovely stocking filler.
The Little Book of Earrings
This gorgeously crafted little book of earrings is the ideal way to store your favourite pieces. It’s strong and sturdy and looks amazing on the dressing table while keeping your earrings tangle free. We love it. What better way to browse a collection before a big night out?
Optiat Wake Me Up Coffee Scrub
If she needs a little help waking up in the morning then this coffee scrub will answer her prayers. It’s rich and delicious with a coarse scrub that leaves skin feeling silky soft and brains firing on all cylinders.
Janjira Smooth Polish
For a weekly treat this is all she needs. It gentle exfoliates the face, leaving behind super soft, clean skin. It makes for a great stocking filler and has become a staple we all use in the office. This is the gift that keeps on giving.
Bioderma Hydrating Mask
This all natural mask provides the optimum hydration for tired skin and we love it, not least because of the small price tag. It’s amazingly cheap for the quality of the product and is sure to be a welcome stocking filler after plenty of Christmas parties. We believe this is the gift that will keep on giving.
Kokolokahi Bath and Body Oils
Surrender to the elements with the Kokolokahi bath and body oils. You can choose from five luxury bath oils for her that allow you to personalise your gifting according to her taste. There are oils of strength, revive, serenity, harmony and balance. These oils looks amazing on a bathroom shelf and disperse easily in hot water to provide a luxury bathing experience. We love them.
Sand & Sky Pink Clay Mask
Pink clay is the must have beauty ingredient for 2017. This mask makes the most of the ingenious product and provides a luxury facial treat. Any woman would be overjoyed to have this detoxifying, beautifying mask in her stocking as it delivers clearer, tighter skin that’s smooth and supple. We love it.
Spa Magik Pamper Set
A beautiful set for an affordable price. Pamper her from top to toe with everything she needs for a spa day at home.
Made by You!
Bath Bomb and Lip Balm Kits
We love these kits from enaissance.co.uk as they really do include all you need to make your own luxury beauty products. They’re generous in size and have clear instructions which make them a breeze. You’ll never have a fresher bath bomb than one you’ve made yourself. We particularly love the lemon fizzies. Try them for yourself!
