It’s that time of year again and to help you out a little I have put together my gift guide for the special women in your life, to give you some ideas and a few discount codes to help you save some pennies along the way. It’s so true what they say that as you get older Christmas is more about spending time with your family and friends and the food over the presents but it’s still such a nice feeling spoiling those you love.
This guide will include bigger present ideas and smaller gifts for stocking fillers or secret santa buys, so hopefully it will give you some ideas and get you in the festive spirit.
Firstly is this gorgeous Abott Lyon handbag – The Jasmine cross body bag in peach/nude which is £69.00, I do have a discount code though for this one that you can use which will save you 30% – ‘JAYNE30’ and you can personalise your bag to the person you are buying it for, I had an R for Rebecca added to my bag and they do this before they send it out to you. It also comes in a really nice white box making it that little extra special. This brand has a range of different style bags and also phone cases, watches and jewellery so definitely worth a browse, shop the bag here – https://www.abbottlyon.com/collections/all-bags-accessories/products/jasmine-crossbody-bag-nude-peach-gold.
Then we have the Urban Decay, Naked ‘honey’ eye shadow palette, which has some really gorgeous shades in, including glitter, it would be any make up lovers dream to receive this and it also comes with a double ended eye shadow brush to apply with and a mirror. You can get this from most beauty and cosmetic stores and online, this is £42.00 and available here – (Ad – affiliate link) https://rstyle.me/+YFzQmJz3-nz-W8qVDfJWeg.
You can’t go wrong with a candle just make sure it smells nice, which this one certainly does, you can smell it when you walk in to the room without it even being lit, this was kindly gifted to me by Manchester Candles but I would 100% buy from them in the future, I have the Roasted Chestnut and Sweet Vanilla scent which smells exactly how you would imagine it to. They are all handmade and can burn for up to 40 hours, they also have candles you can personalise as well as special christmas gift sets of 3, shop here – https://manchestercandles.co.uk/product/roasted-chestnut-and-sweet-vanilla.
Next up is perfume, I love receiving perfume for Christmas especially if they have chosen the scent for you too, I definitely associate memories with smells too. This one is Hugo Boss and the scent is Intense and the size is 50ml, you can get lots of different gift sets this time of year too. Shop this perfume here – https://www.boots.com/boss-the-scent-intense-for-her-eau-de-parfum-spray-50ml-10230921 It is currently on offer at Boots for only £40 too.
This is a brand I have started working with and using this year and absolutely love it, I can see what all the hype is about, I have been using Dermalogica facial products so couldn’t wait to try these two, their body scrub and replenish body oil. The perfect present for anyone who loves to unwind with a relaxing bath, these products will leave their skin feeling really good. Shop their body range here – https://www.dermalogica.co.uk/body-therapy/body_therapy,en_GB,sc.html.
Another great brand to check out for gifts is Ideal of Sweden they sell phone cases, phone wallets and phone accessories all really good quality and lots of strong designs to choose from, the two that I chose are the Kensington Clutch, which comes in a few different colours and is 100% vegan, these cases have a section for your cards as well as your phone. The second case is from the Negin Mirsalehi collaboration, I love the glitter detail on this one, it’s called the Night Out Case. Shop their whole range here – https://idealofsweden.co.uk prices are usually between £29.99 and £49.99 but they have lots of Black Friday deals planned.
Other options are these hair clips from Hermine Hold, who are a Stockholm based woman’s hair accessories brand, they sell silk scarfs, hair clips headbands and scrunchies. Such gorgeous quality and really beautiful designs, shop here – https://herminehold.com/gb/our-products.
And lastly you will have seen these in a previous post, Jewellery sets are always a great bet and these are really simple but gorgeous pieces from Leo Mazzotti, they also sell watches and wallets, shop their whole range here – https://leomazzotti.com/shop/.
I hope you have found my gift guide helpful and have enjoyed looking at some of my favourite pieces this season, happy shopping and I hope you all have a lovely Christmas, always remember though that if you only have a budget for a present or your ticket/transport home your family or friends will always prefer to have you than a present.
