Christmas gift ideas for her

With Christmas period fast approaching I decided to put together a gift guide and maybe give you some suggestion on what is worth spending on that little extra in my eyes.

I checked out quite a few gift guides in the past and they all seemed very similar to one another. They all have specific price brackets that show different gifts in each of the brackets. Being me, I decided to take an alternative approach and maybe show you a wider variety of options.

Let me know if you like this format as I have a similar thing in mind specifically for him… All the gift suggestions are only my ideas and I am more than happy to take your feedback on board and change one or two categories !

If you are interested in any of the products featured here, just click on the bottom of the image and the link to the item should come automatically.

So without further delay, let’s begin…

  • Candles

Candles in general would be my number one gift especially for less personal occassions. A nice candle is such a homely gift and can add a little bit of luxury. I like more price candles as they have quite unusual scents and last a very long time.

All of the candles shown here are priced up to £50 and I would recommend each and every single one. Choosing a favourite one would be a difficult one but if I was forced to make that decision it would have to be Jo Malone’s Blackberry & Bay.

 

 

  • Fragrance

Fragrance is my second most favourite gift to give and probably number one if I am on the receiving end. There is so many good fragrances on the market that will suit most tastes and personal preferences.

I like niche and unusual scents, maybe on a more spicy yet floral side. My current number one would be without the shadow of the doubt Diptique L’Ombre dans l’Eau. It reminds me of my childhood yearsand the smell of blackcurrant leaves is to die for !

 

 

  • Beauty accessories

Every women needs a good make up brush set, nice hair brush, wash bag or a compact mirror. Options are endless and some of the practical gift are the best ones.

I would love to get a quality brush set and although I do not need any more, I would be more happy to test some new ones… My number one choice would be this set from Zoeva (just in case mu husband is reading this !).

 

 

  • SLGs (Small Leather Goods)

Card holder or card case is an ideal little gift and I strongly believe that most ladies would love one. It can be as luxurious as you want it to be with options available both on high street and in designer boutiques.

I would love to find this one by Dior under my tree although I know I am pushing my luck with this price tag attached but it is worth trying !

 

 

  • Jewellery

Nice piece of jewellery is a statement and something that will stay with a person for a very long time. It can be anything from a pair of earings to a luxurious bracelet. The choices are endless and so is the budget.

I like my jewellery very simple and understated. I do not wear much gold but I have been eyeing this necklaces for quite some time now and I really, really like it !

 

  • Cashmere

There is nothing more special to give than cashmere regardless whether it is a scarf, hat, jumper or even pyjamas. The feel and the quality of the fabric is very cosy and it is an ultimate luxury gift in my opinion.

Nobody does cashmere better than Acne Studios. The scarf show here would have stay on my wish list for now but it is a dream…

 

 

  • Books

For somebody who likes to read, good book or two will always be a good idea. Knowing their favourite author or hobby may come handy but in general travel books as well as cook books would be good choice.

If you follow my blog for a while, you may know that discovering undiscovered is something I am obsessed with so this travel book would be the one on my wish list !

 

 

That is it for the gift guide for her…

I have already started working on the gift guide for him (available here) so if you have any suggestions, please let me know !

As usual thank you very much for stopping by…

Currently wishing for…

I am a demanding person. I expect a lot from others but even more from myself. I never understood the fact that I cannot buy something that I really wanted and always found a (legal !!) way of getting my dream goods.

Over time I have learnt that material things are there to make us feel good and satisfy our emptiness in one way or the other but the real happiness can be found somewhere else… But I still get occasional cravings for luxury and today I decided to share with you what I am wishing for !

1. Gucci Marmont Velvet Mini Bag

I am not sure what it is about this bag I like so much but I am obsessed with it. The colour is so unusual and more statement that I have ever gone for. It is a small bag but seems spacious enough to keep all of my essentials like keys, phone, make up etc. I do not own anything made out of velvet so maybe that is the attraction ?

2. Sea NY Dress

I have first saw this dress on Tanya Burr channel and fell in love instantly ! Beautiful lace and the lightness of the fabric blowed me away. It is a very pricey piece of clothing and I am not sure if I am able to justify the cost so I am keeping my fingers crossed it will go on sale !

3. All Saints Papin Leather Jacket

Some items in your wardrobe will become staples that you cannot live without and that jacket will soon be mine ! It is a perfect combination between casual and everyday style and the quality of the finish is exceptional ! I know that the colour is not very summery but I just do not care…

4. NO 21 Bow Satin Slippers

I have no idea of how practical this purchase would be but when I saw these slippers I felt that I need them in my life. They are so unusual and such a statement piece. Pairing them with jeans and t-shirt seems like a match made in heaven… The price is silly to say the least but as it is a wish list I can include whatever I want !

5. Rose Golden Complete Brush Set by Zoeva

I have been obsessed with their brushes ever since I got one that is an essential in my make up bag. I am not sure if I need all of the brushes included in the set but as I find difficult to compromise on quality I would love to get them. It is spring Bank Holiday weekend in the UK and some of the retailers will give their shoppers 30 % off so maybe now is the time ?

That is all I have on my wish list at the minute… Am I missing anything ?

All of the items included in today’s post would be great to have but it is not the end of the world if I do not get them so take that list with the pinch of salt !

As usual many thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow for What I wore Sunday !!

Love,

Aggie xx
