It's that time of year again where I track down a load of super pretty treats and bundle them all together into one shiny post - say hello to this year's Christmas Gift Guide for Women! Similar to my Christmas Gift Guide for Men, I've put together about ten gift suggestions, all of which could make fabulous stocking fillers - both in size, and price. I can't help but notice I've been attracted by pastel colours this year, though in my defence the gifts are just as pretty on the inside.
Neom Energising Treatment Kit Gift Set c/o Amara Living - A favourite of mine, this treatment kit comprises a diffuser, spray and candle, each with the fragrance of Sicilian Lemon and Fresh Basil. It's gorgeous. If you're unsure of what to get someone, anything by Neom is a safe bet - who doesn't love an excuse for pampering?! And besides, Neom's packaging is so pretty the gift wrapping is practically done for you. Amara have some lovely options available, including the Complete Bliss Collection Gift Set and Tranquility Bath Oil.
Balmi Lip Balm - This cute little lip balm is neatly disguised as a simple cube, perfect for popping into your bag, or a Christmas stocking! A trio of flavours can be picked up at Superdrug: cherry, raspberry and mint (and for my German readers, gold and silver coloured versions are available at Douglas). Let's face it, we all have enough to carry in our handbags as it is and so these little compact beauties are a total godsend when it comes to saving space!
Ruby + Ed Berry Velvet Bow Ballerinas - Aww! These ballerina slippers by Ruby + Ed come in a variety of colours, though this ruby version just screams Christmas to me. This festive colour was completely sold out by December last year, and so I've no doubt many happy recipients will be waking up to find a pair poking out of their Christmas stockings this time around! The crushed faux fur lining makes them the perfect gift for those with chilly feet - scroll to the end of this post for a better look at the slippers.
Spongellé Shimmer Brilliant (Tuberose) c/o Gerrard International - Recognise the name from my Christmas Gift Guide for Men? Even more exciting than the Super Buffer, this shimmer version puts the fun back into countless 'getting ready' sessions throughout the festive party season. Exfoliate, cleanse, massage and nourish, all in one shimmery sponge. The hint of glitter and super pretty packaging makes it the perfect gift for any beauty fanatics you know! It's also available in gold (amber) and white (pearl blossom). Though be warned, the scent is totally addictive...
Kate Spade New York Strike Gold Pen Set - Seriously, don't even think about anyone else. If you're reading this, the chances are you're also the type of person to appreciate a gold ink pen set. Go ahead and add them to your Christmas wishlist, and then sit back and wait for the day when you can display them in a perspex pen pot on your beautifully arranged desk. Roll on December 25th!
Jaeger Faux Fur Bobble Top Beanie - Accessories have long been go-to options when it comes to gift giving, though nowadays it's not so tragic to be gifting socks, or unwrapping a knitted hat - not when chunky wool knit hats like this exist! Alternatively, check out the black version (white pom pom) in a recent outfit post.
Anthropologie Gold Pineapple Dish - Sadly, this gold pineapple shaped trivet has now sold out and disappeared off the face of the Earth; though take inspiration from other trivets available at Anthro, each one as stylish as the next. Don't even get me started on the Zodiac Trinket Dishes...
Psst! If you know someone who adores pineapples, head to H&M Home.
Jessica Nails Into The Wild Collection c/o - I reviewed this gorgeous new nail polish collection back in September and have been addicted to the wintery shades ever since! They're also now available in gift sets of three in faux snakeskin cosmetic bags, making them perfect stocking fillers for mani-addicts.
Ostravia Macaron Bauble, Eiffel Tower and Passport. I'm totally amazed by how quickly they've sold out, though I shouldn't be really considering how unique the pretty pink designs are! Thankfully there are still some other designs in stock. These glass decorations are made to be treasured, and as a result make gorgeous gifts for both teens and adults alike. They work well gifted alone, though I doubt anyone would turn down a box of tissue-wrapped pink cameras, telephones and cars. Be still my beating heart!
Holdsworth Dark Chocolate Rose & Violet Creams - I've said it before and I'll say it again: 'tis the season to gift well-presented confectionary! This luxurious treat makes the perfect stocking filler, or could perhaps be ideal for when you're heading somewhere as a guest this Christmas - handing over a box of aromatic rose and violet creams is absolutely the way to go. Yes to the pretty crystallised petals!
Waitrose Christmas Prosecco Panettone - Another edible, though this time on a much larger scale! This festive-wrapped Panettone (Italian cake made with butter, sultanas and Prosecco) is perhaps too large for a Christmas stocking, though I'm pretty sure there's no rule against having it sat prettily beside the fireplace? Plus, it's probably the easiest one to tick off your list thanks to it being conveniently sold at Waitrose!
I hope this gift guide has been helpful; whether you're looking to shop for others, or for yourself this festive season. The Christmas countdown is well underway now (eek!), and speaking of which I'm hitting 'publish' on this gift guide having just left the beyond magical Christmas markets in Cologne. I'm totally soaking up the festive atmosphere this week from Cologne to Bruges and can't wait to read about your faves from this gift guide selection once I'm back!
