christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016

It’s hard work buying for women. Even women don’t know how to buy for women, especially when it comes to Christmas. If you’re on the hunt for a Christmas Gift Guide for Her 2016 that contains the latest trends and must-haves, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve scouted around and asked plenty of questions, and we think we’ve come up with everything to have everyone covered … Although we’d love to know your thoughts, obviously.

Women – If you are with this list, share it to your men on Facebook to educate the masses.

P.S. There’s also the Christmas Gift Guide for Him 2016 too, just in case you need a helping hand.

Men – Have a good read. These are the things we ACTUALLY want under the tree this year.

Christmas Gift Guide for Her 2016


1 – Cinderella X Irregular Choice Shoes / Schuh

In case you weren’t already aware, the Irregular Choice Cinderella range of shoes were the only thing the girls were talking about over the last month or so. This means they’re definitely making their way to the Christmas Gift Guide for Her 2016, and you can find them in various places, just one of which is Schuh. These delights are called Graceful Dreamer, and they actually have lights on! That’s right, you read that right, THEY ACTUALLY HAVE LIGHTS ON! These are Cinderella shoes that really sparkle.

£110 – Schuh – Click image for more details.

There are a number of designs, each and every one of them stunning in their own little way, but our favourite was these beauties … (And these ones are our ones, by the way!) They’re called Believe in Magic, and we’re so in love with them, we don’t ever want to wear them.

Christmas Gift Guide for Her 2016 1 1

For the record, you can buy sole protectors for Irregular Choice (and other similarly sole-designed) shoes, so if you’re going to get beauties like these, we’d highly recommend them!


2 – Brilliant Box Subscriptions

If the girl in your life loves nothing more than an assorted array of beauty products, a beauty box subscription is a really good idea. Not only will she get a range of beauty products delivered right to the door every month, but she’ll also get money off some of the high-end products on the market right now, and earn points as she does so. Technically, this is a winning gift for any woman out there, and the boxes can often be customised to suit every age and skin type.

One that we’ve recently signed up to is Birchbox, and we’ll be bringing you the review for November’s box soon.

There are other boxes available, beauty products and otherwise. Just a few others you should check out include Glossy Box, and also Pink Parcel – that’s great for her ‘time of the month’!


3 – Yves Saint Laurent – Black Opium

This is one of our favourite fragrances right now Yves Saint Laurent Opium redone for the modern woman. This dark and deep fragrance is super rich and perfect for winter. Probably not one easily worn during the summer nights, but for festive winter occasions with luxurious velvet dresses and lots of red lipstick, this fragrance is just perfect.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-1
£40.50 / All Beauty / Click for more details

It’s a rich perfume with little undertones of coffee, orange blossom, pink pepper, vanilla, and jasmine, amongst other things. This is one of the top female fragrances for 2016, and one that many women would appreciate opening on Christmas morning.


4 – Love Boo Mummy & Me Pamper Kit

For the new mummy in your life, this Love Boo Mummy & Me Pamper Kit is a great little kit for under £33, and it contains five treats suitable for both mother and baby. You often overdo it when new kids are concerned at Christmas, but you can’t forget about the important mother’s too!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-13
£32.99 / Beauty Expert / Click for more details

With oil to keep stretch marks at bay, as well as soothing bath soak, bottom butter, baby lotion, and body washes, it’s everything that the new mother and baby will need for a really nice pampering night in. Just add music and a nice cup of tea … and a few moments of peace and quiet, obviously.


5 – Yankee Candle Berry Trifle Large Jar

I haven’t met a single woman who doesn’t love a good Yankee candle, and they make for perfect gifts for everyone – your neighbour, that work colleague whose name you never remember, and even your closest friends and relatives too.

christmas-gift-gide-for-her-2016-17
£21.99 (3 for 2) / Boots / Click for more details

At the moment, Boots have a great 3 for 2 deal going on these Yankee delights, and there’s a whole bunch of fabulous fragrances to pick from too. We couldn’t resist a good Berry Trifle, but if you click here, you’ll be taken to the full 3 for 2 range to pick from.


6 – The View from The Shard with 3 Course Michelin Dining and Bubbles for Two

If you want to see everything that London has to offer, you could do a whole lot worse than seeing it from the Shard, one of the most iconic buildings in the capital. Who wouldn’t want dinner at a Michelin star restaurant? And with those views?

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-22
£111 / BuyaGift / Click for more details

It’ll be a Christmas present with a memory … perhaps the perfect place to get down on one knee? (Just in case you were thinking about it!)

At the moment, you’ll save over 30% with BuyaGift, and this amazing gift is just £111. You’d best check that she’s not afraid of heights first though …




7 – Unicorn Slippers

Who doesn’t want unicorn slippers? We do, that’s for sure, and once the woman in your life sees these, she’s going to want them too. Colourful, cute, and they keep your feet warm, plus all for under £20? You couldn’t get yourself a better gift, and these cuties would make for great stuffing stockers too!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-3
£14 / ASOS / Click for more details

Everyone needs new slippers for Christmas. When would we get new slippers at any other time? These colourful delights are just the trick for scooching around on Christmas morning, rocking out with your new Christmas PJ’s, and the silly hats that come in crackers.

Oh, and if she loves unicorns, there’s a good chance she’ll also love these:


8 – Gift Cards

Gift cards are a tough one because on the one hand, they may say, “Sorry, I couldn’t be bothered to shop around for a gift for you, but here’s a fistful of cash, nicely packaged in a nice looking card to make it look like I tried really hard.”

On the other hand, with a gift card, the woman in your life could get the PERFECT gift – exactly whatever it is she wants. There are so many ways that you can give a gift card to make it more appealing too. You could hang it on the tree like a decoration, packaging it up in a number of boxes to make it difficult to get into, or even start a treasure trail around the house until she finds it.

If she wants that latest Ted Baker bag, but you’re not sure what that latest Ted Baker bag is, a gift voucher for the bag does the job quite nicely. At least then she’ll get exactly what she wants, in exactly the colour she wants too!


9 – Yves Saint Laurent – Touche Eclat Radiant Touch

You might not know a lot about makeup (male buying for a female, or female buying for a male), but if there’s one product out there that you should wake up and pay attention to, it’s the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch. This clever concealer and highlighter will make it look like you got a good night’s sleep even when you haven’t, and it’s one of the most-loved item in every girls’ beauty bag in the CherryCherryBeauty den.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-2
£22.50 / All Beauty / Click for more details

Picking from the Yves Saint Laurent beauty range is always a good idea when you want to buy a winning gift, and another thing you should definitely take a look at is their Rouge collection of lipsticks. If she loves red lips, she’ll love those lip colours!




10 – Ted Baker Purse & Bracelet Gift Set

Everyone loves Ted Baker stuff, so there’s a good chance the woman in your life will really appreciate this little Christmas gift, available for under £50. The rose gold colour is very much on trend for right now, and a woman can never have too many purses. Or bracelets for that matter.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-4
£45 / ASOS / Click for more details

We love the bracelet alone, but we’ll never turn down the chance to get another purse, especially when it’s as pretty as this one. This one definitely got the thumbs up from the girls in the CherryCherryBeauty den, therefore it definitely belongs on the Christmas gift guide for her 2016!


11 – Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Lift & Firm Set

How much do you love your mum? Because she’s going to really appreciate this Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Lift & Firm Set. It’s worth over £110, but you can get it for £65 at Beauty Expert, and for the youthful mother, it’s a must-have!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-14

With skin boosting serums, day creams, cleansers, moisturisers, and more, all designed to keep more mature skin looking younger for longer, it’s not only a luxury gift, but one she’ll appreciate for days, weeks, and maybe even months to come.


12 – Premier Cru Chocolate Tasting Gift Box

Does the woman in your life really love chocolate? These she’s going to absolutely love what we’ve found next, and so will you when you see the range of treats that Chocolate Trading Co has to offer!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-24
£14.95 / Chocolate Trading Co / Click for more details

We loved the look of this Premier Cru Chocolate Tasting Gift Box, and if she doesn’t like the chocolates, she’ll probably pass those ones your way. Technically it’s a gift that’ll keep on giving for both of you!


13 – Red Sequin Christmas Tree Jumper

Christmas Day just wouldn’t be Christmas Day without a Christmas-themed sweater, and this sparkly festive number would come in right in handy!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-25
£22.40 / Dorothy Perkins / Click for more details

Now on sale, was £28 and now £22.40, it’s a great gift for the female friends and relatives in your life who really love Christmas … Or who don’t, and you just want to annoy them with the sweater anyway!


14 – Gucci Bamboo 30ml Eau de Parfum Gift Set

The best thing about Christmas is those Christmassy-perfume gift sets you get. It’s the only time you’d ever get the body lotions and shower gels that match the perfumes you wear, but you must admit, they do smell great only our skin!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-18
£49 / Boots / Click for more details

We love this Gucci Bamboo gift set, one of the newest and prettiest-smelling of the Gucci scents. A feminine yet strong smell, there’s orange blossom and Italian bergamot for the top notes, with Ylang Ylang, lily, and Tahitian vanilla poking through. And we all know that the perfume lasts longer when you have the body lotion to match, making this gift set perfect!

And just in case you needed a little help finding a few more top 2016 fragrance gift sets for Christmas, here’s our top picks:


15 – Bespoke Crazy Cat Lady Drinks Coaster

If she’s a crazy cat lady, and you’re looking for stocking stuffers, we’d definitely recommend these adorable personalised coasters, which also come in dog-theme by the way. Personalised gifts, although once thought of as cheesy, are a really great touch.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-26
£3.99 / Forever Bespoke / Click for more details

If she gets annoyed when someone uses her wine glass, or hates it when someone uses her favourite cat-themed coaster, you should definitely check out Forever Bespoke. They have a range of gifts, all of which can be personalised, all of which she’ll love!




16 – Dyson Supersonic™ Hair Dryer

It’s THE hairdryer that everyone was talking about for 2016 – the eagerly awaited Dyson beauty. It’s expensive, but it does the job really well, and every review that we’ve read has been positive … which obviously means we want it.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-27
£299.99 / John Lewis / Click for more details

With powerful technology, heat regulation, fast drying, and a bunch of magnetic attachments, it’ll probably take her longer to get ready when with the fast drying action, just because she enjoys playing around with it so much!


17 – Sterling Silver & 18kt Rose Gold Vermeil Reindeer Bauble Charm

We’re a big fan of Links of London jewellery, and one thing we’d definitely love under the Christmas tree this year is this stunning sterling silver and 18kt rose gold Christmas charm. It’s a Christmas decoration and a beautiful gift, all in one.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-31
£65 / Links of London / Click for more details

Charms are a really beautiful way of making little memories. You’ll always remember the year you got that beautiful Christmas charm from our boyfriend, or the weird charm your Dad bought you because he’s not that great at getting gifts. We love a good charm bracelet, everyone in the CherryCherryBeauty den has one!


18 – Personalised Presecco

We’re just going to give you a moment to let that sink in. That’s right – personalised Prosecco. Isn’t it just the most amazing thing you’ve ever seen? We’d quite like bottle of this all of our own, screw the female friends and relatives we need to buy gifts for.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-42
£22.95 / PrezzyBox / Click for more details

To be fair, at under £23, you could probably afford to make a couple of Prosecco-lover’s dreams come true with a bottle so special, they probably won’t ever want to drink it. Unless it’s an emergency. Like … there being no other Presecco in the house.

Oh, and just in case Prosecco isn’t your friend’s / sister’s / girlfriend’s thing, you can also get a number of other bottles – rose wine, red wine, white wine, with the addition of silk roses, etc.




19 – Gin and Tonic Bathing Gel

You know those days when you just need to go home and bathe in a tub of gin and tonic? Well, now you kinda can. In fact, you definitely can, with this Gin and Tonic Bathing Gel from PrezzyBox which we think is utter genius!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-43
£9.95 / PrezzyBox / Click for more details

There are others on offer too! Beer, blood bath, oil, and even zombie – there’s one for everyone, male or female. We really liked quite a lot of the stuff on PrezzyBox, and we’d definitely recommend you check the site out if you’re having a hard time coming up with gift ideas!


20 – Amazon Kindle Paperwhite eReader

For the bookworm in your life, what about this Amazon Kindle Paperwhite eReader? We know that there’s no substitute for a good book, but they’re big and bulky, especially if you go for the hardback versions, and they don’t fit in our handbags as well. 

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-28
Starts at £79 / John Lewis / Click for more details

Plus, you need lights with an old-school book, and this has all that kind of thing built-in. It’ll keep the kids quiet on long journeys in the back of the car, and it’ll even keep your dad quiet on Christmas day in the evening too, just as everyone prepares to doze away into a food coma. We’ve added this to our Christmas wish list, how about you?


21 – Benefit Girlesque Collection

Most girls love makeup, which most girls will love this Benefit collection, worth £75 but on offer for £44.50 on Look Fantastic. The kit is worth it for the They’re Real! Mascara alone, which we featured on the Top 10 Best Mascaras of 2016, and there’s also a couple of other classics from the Benefit range – benetint, Hoola, and the POREfessional.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-32
£44.50 / Look Fantastic / Click for more details

It’s a gift we’d definitely love to see from Santa this year, how about you? And just in case this one doesn’t float your boat, there are a couple of others you could opt for instead:

 


22 – Oral-B GENIUS 9000 Rose Gold Electric Toothbrush

It’s THE toothbrush of the year, and having a super white and pearly smile has never been so important! This stunning rose gold beauty is exclusive to Boots right now, and you’ll save half price on all dental items too. Winning!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-46

23 – Daddy’s Lil Monster Suicide Squad Varsity T-Shirt

Suicide Squad was THE movie of 2016, don’t you think? Harley Quinn was the most iconic character to come out of it too, hundreds and thousands of girls all around the world dressing up as their favourite super villain for the night.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-50
£23.99 / TruffleShuffle / Click for more details

We love this Harley Quinn themed t-shirt, just £23.99 from TruffleShuffle, and we can’t help but feel we would be a great super villain if we were to wear it.


24 – Grandkids Collage Frame

This one is clearly for the Grandmothers in the house! They deserve so much love, don’t they? Why not show them the love by presenting them with a photo frame filled with their favourite people … That’s obviously the kids and grandkids, in case that wasn’t obvious.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-53
£4.99 / The Range / Click for more details

It’s a simple gift, and super cheap too – this frame is under a fiver. Spend a few minutes either ordering prints online, or getting them printed out in store, old-school style, and you have a gift that’s super thoughtful and really personal. The perfect thing for Grandma!

We loved the idea of using photos and photo frame for Christmas gifts, and in case you needed a hand finding some more beautiful frames and ideas, here’s some more that we found:


25 – Champneys Spa Treatment Time

At half price, this Champneys Spa Treatment Time set from Boots is a definite winner, especially for those last-minute gifts you always forget! £25 down from £50 is an utter bargain, and you’ll earn those beautiful Boots points on that too. You can spend those later, on beauty products for yourself.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-16
£25 (Half Price) / Boots / Click for more details

There’s a whole bunch of stuff in this amazing kit – nail files, exfoliating mitts, nail polishes, shower cream, body lotions, and more. It all smells amazing too. We think the older female generation would love this – your mum, aunt, grandmother, etc.




26 – Apple iPad Pro, 32GB, Wi-Fi, 9.7in – Rose Gold

Who doesn’t want a new iPad for Christmas? We love this rose gold beauty from Apple, and it’s just the perfect side to watch all those Youtube tutorials that we get massively carried away with!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-47
£549 / Very / Click for more details

With Very, you can spread the cost of the iPad, and there are different memory capacities available, as well as different colours. With a really good camera on the front and back, you could even film a couple of Youtube tutorials yourself, and make some money back from your hair, nails, or beauty hobby!


27 – Hanging Gardens Double Duvet Cover

We’re so in love with this stunning watercolour floral bed linen, and we definitely think it belongs on our bed. Girls love bedding and stuff that makes their bed pretty, so as long as you get the general colour scheme and idea right, this can be quite the thoughtful little gift.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-54
£85 / Ted Baker / Click for more details

High quality bedding really does make a difference, and the softer the sheets, the sweeter you sleep. That’s what we think anyway. In case this floral design isn’t quite to her tastes, you could also take a peek at some of these:


28 – GHD Copper Luxe Black Platinum Gift Set

No girl would cope if her hair straighteners broke down, so why not get her a pair that all the other girls are lusting after – these beautiful copper GHD beauties. The copper colour being very much on-trend, of course, although be prepared for her to go copper-mad and want to redecorate the bedroom.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-15
£165 / Beauty Expert / Click for more details

These ones turn off after 30 minutes of inactivity, which is great for those ladies who have a habit of leaving theirs on … like us.




29 – Bubble Bath Machine

Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could afford to send your mum to a spa for Christmas this year? Sadly, we don’t all have hundreds of pounds to throw at spa weekends, but that doesn’t mean your mum needs to miss out …

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-44
£14.95 / PrezzyBox / Click for more details

We want this Bubble Bath Machine more than we can express to you, and we reckon our mum would appreciate the bubbles too. Just add wine, candles, and some of her favourite music, and she’ll never even notice she’s not at an actual spa.

In fact, just to make life easier for you, we’ve come up with a couple of additional items that we think you could give to your mum to bring the spa package home to her! Check these out and let us know what you think:


30 – Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario

It’s the palette that everyone’s talking about right now, and at over £100, you an understand why. It’s one of those gifts that’ll probably make her cry, especially if she’s a big makeup fan and you didn’t expect it … Just saying!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-60
£103 / Amazon / Click for more details

Beautiful shades blended together to leave you with nude, smokey brown, and even a charcoal smokey eye look, it’s one we’d LOVE to see under the tree on Christmas Day. Why not share this post to your fella if you’d like him to get the hint? 😉




31 – De’Longhi Nescafé Dolce Gusto Jovia Manual Coffee Machine

Now, we know what you’re all thinking, buying a woman electrical or kitchen-based goods for Christmas is never a good idea. Usually, we’d agree with you on this one. There’s nothing romantic about getting a vacuum cleaner for Christmas, for example, but these days, women are getting excited about getting to grips with kitchen equipment, as are men for that matter.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-74
£29.99 / Amazon / Click for more details

We did a little poll to work out whether or not women would complain if they were given gifts like this for Christmas, and although there were a few that would have been upset by it, most of them (including me, by the way), would happily have unwrapped this little beauty. Plus, things like these are super expensive. Getting them for Christmas means that we don’t need to shell out for them!

It’s a judgement call – you know your girlfriend / sister / mother / best friend better than we do. But just in case you decide it IS a really good idea, we can recommend something useful, like this coffee machine. At least if you promise to make her a coffee in the morning, her day will get started the right way! 😉


32 – Personalised Sterling Silver Name Necklace

80% of the CherryCherryBeauty den has a personalised name necklace on right at this very moment in time, proving that quite a few women out there would really love this adorable Christmas gift.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-49
£22 / Very / Click for more details

The name can be personalised to say anything that you like. For a boyfriend buying for a girlfriend, it could be a pet name. It could say “Mum” from the kids, or just her name. There are a lot of options open to you here, making it a great and versatile gift for a number of female friends, relatives, and acquaintances.


33 – Sweet Snuggles Mug & Sock Gift Set

Firstly, she gets new socks, and everyone needs new socks. Secondly, she gets a new mug, and it’ll be her Christmas mug, and she’ll get excited about using it every time you get it out for Christmas!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-63
£5 / Superdrug / Click for more details

Thirdly, it’s only £5 from Superdrug, making it a great idea for a stocking stuffer, or even a Secret Santa gift at work. There are plenty of offers on at Superdrug right now – just in tie for the season of gift-giving!


34 – Unicorn Mobile Backup Battery

It’s so pretty, we can’t believe it’s real, but it is. This is one way to ensure your phone is fully-juiced up at all times, and look amazing, all at once!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-67
£17.50 (Was £25) / Miss Selfridge / Click for more details

It’s on special offer right now – usually £25 and now just £17.50, and it’s a great way of making sure you can update your Instagram account without fear of your battery running out. It’s also a great way to ensure your BFF can text back at all times. You know how she’s bad for that …


35 – Polaroid Snap Red Instant Camera with 20 Prints

Is the woman in your life a fan of photography? Perhaps she takes more photos than you care to think about each day, 99% of those selfies too? We fell a little bit in love with this Polaroid camera, and she might too, especially when you consider there are a range of colours on offer!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-48
£89.99 / Very / Click for more details

It prints as it takes photo, proper old-school photography, but in case you worry that the 20 free prints won’t be enough to find that perfect selfie, there’s a built-in selfie mirror, a memory card slot so that you can take a bunch of photos and then pick your favourite, and there’s even a timer, and the option to add filters and stickers to your photos before you print too.

We love it, and we think whoever you buy this gift for will too.


36 – Bobbi Brown Golden Eye Palette Eye Shadow & Mascara Set

What girl doesn’t love a good smokey eye, and what better way to achieve it than with this amazing Bobbi Brown Golden Eye Palette Eye Shadow & Mascara Set, available at 10% off at John Lewis – £26.55.

You’ve got everything you need to create the perfect smokey eye here – eyeshadow and liner brushes, charcoal coloured eyeshadow, metallic shades, mascaras … She’ll love you for this gift. We certainly would!


37 – Pugicorn Long Sleeve Tee & Legging Pyjama Set

Just like boys do, girls love new pyjamas for Christmas. There really is nothing better than crawling into bed at the end of a long Christmas Day, all freshly wrapped up in your new sleepwear, stuff to the max from all that turkey you ate.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-5
£24 / ASOS / Click for more details

These pyjamas are bloody brilliant if you ask us – pugs and unicorns all in one. In fact, we’re pretty much in love with the entire ASOS pyjama range, and these are a few more that we definitely think you should check out:


38 – Colour-Changing Unicorn Mood Light / IWOOT

IWOOT, otherwise known as I Want One of Those, is offering a great deal on Christmas gifts right now, especially if you’re in the market for some easy and cheap stocking stuffers. You can get three gifts for £20, and there’s a number of adorable items on offer. One in particular that we fell in love with was this colour-changing unicorn mood light!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-3
£6.99 or 3 for £20 – IWOOT – Click image for more details

It’ll gently cycle it’s way through the beautiful array of colours, illuminating the room softly and giving it a great unicorn glow. If you have kids, they’ll love this as a nightlight. If you don’t, it’s so pretty, we still want it so we think it’s okay that you do too.


39 – Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb and Ginger Liqueur

Who doesn’t know a gin lover? We know hundreds of them, and they all made wonderfully appreciative noises when we told about this little beauty – Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb and Ginger Liqueur. Doesn’t rhubarb and ginger gin sound like a lovely combination? Now, try saying it out loud …

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-30
£17.95 / Amazon / Click for more details

It’s a beautiful pink shade, and it’s made in Edinburgh, Scotland, and we can’t help but think how well this might go with champagne, or tonic, or anything really. Hands up if you like this one!




40 – Mermaid Blanket

Firstly, why wouldn’t you want a mermaid blanket for Christmas? Everyone in the CherryCherryBeauty den wants one, and one of us even owns one! The rest of us are all jealous obviously, but less so now that we know you can buy it for under £30 at New Look!

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-36
£29.99 / New Look / Click for more details

There are other colours available if this amazing mermaid blue shade isn’t quite floating your boat, and as well as a brighter, lighter blue, you can even opt for grey and purple. We’re 100% in love with these, and we think whoever you give them to will be also.

Check out the other mermaid tail blanket colours HERE.


41 – Sleigh Bells Luxury Christmas Food And Wine Hamper

Hampers are a super underestimated gift, if you ask us. We’ve both known to throw together a last-minute DIY hamper for special occasions from time to time, and each time we’ve done so, they’ve been very well received. If you pack them full of enough goodies, or just select the right goodies, you could be on to a winner.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-68
£59 / Amazon / Click for more details

If you don’t have time to work out what you should put in the perfect Christmas hamper, there are plenty you can just buy. This one, for example, is perfect for those who you’re not really sure about – a neighbour, perhaps? Or your grandparents? And when they open it, if you made them open it in front of you, you can grab the good stuff before they get there. Cheekily, obviously, the only way you get away with it!


42 – Doggy Mince Pies

What’s the best way to win over a pet lover? Treat their pet, of course! If you want to really impress the in-laws this year (and not disappoint them like every other year), treat the dog and you might just be halfway to winning the battle! At least if you go armed with something like this, you can make it look like you’ve made an effort for everyone involved – including the furry family members.

christmas-gift-guide-for-her-2016-75
£4.05 / Amazon / Click for more details

We’d recommend something like this – Doggy Mince Pies – although there are some fabulous Christmas gifts for dog owners on Amazon. We know because we spent too many hours going through and laughing, adding them to our own crazy cat and dog owner wish lists!




43 – Gold Mason Jar Light

We’d love to be the kind of people who have time to do DIY Christmas gifts, we do keep coming up with the lists after all. Somehow, however, we always seem to go a little off-track. By that we mean we totally forget about it until the last minute, and then the gifts we give are a little like something out of that one episode of Friends where Monica and Chandler promise to make DIY Valentine’s Day gifts.

This has a DIY feel about it, without taking you forever to make. Plus it’s under a tenner, beautiful sparkly, and perfect for your best friend. She’s gold, after all. Where would you be without her?

Now sing with us – “You light up my life!”

We found loads of adorable light ideas, and we couldn’t decide which was our favourite for this Christmas Gift Guide for Her 2016. So, here’s a few more we totally fell in love with:


44 – OPI Breakfast at Tiffanys Collection Mini 10 Pack

If she’s a big fan of nail art, she’ll probably love this OPI delight – a selection of miniatures which she can always go on to buy the big ones of if she loves them. This 10 pack is inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which automatically makes it a classic, and it’s an idea gift for the big girls and little girls alike. We all love a good mani/pedi session.

One of the biggest names in the nail polish world, we certainly own our fair share of their shades, and we don’t think we’d be disappointed in the slightest if we were to unwrap this on Christmas Day. What do you think?


45 – Newgate New Covent Garden Clock – Overcoat Grey / IWOOT

You never know, if you get the girl an alarm clock, and a pretty one at that, she may make a greater effort to get up in time in the morning, and therefore get to where she needs to be on time. Alternatively, she may throw the alarm clock across the room when it wakes her up in the morning … It’s a tough one, buying an alarm clock for a Christmas gift, but we really like this one and can’t help but think that it needs to be on our bedside table …

It comes in other colours too, just in case off-white wasn’t really your thing, but it’s a really traditional looking clock. Plus, it has that whole alarm clock function which, let’s face it, we could all probably do with.


46 – Colourful Hair Dyes

Right, women love to dye their hair these days, and never has that been so apparent. Just take a look around when you go for a walk, and you’ll see hair colours that you never before thought you’d see. If the girl in your life loves to dye her hair, buying her an array of colours might just be the perfect gift she’s looking for.

To make life even easier for you, Attitude Clothing has a great Mix n’ Match deal on right now, buy 4 for the price of 3, and there’s a whole bunch she’s bound to love, including the pre-lightening / bleaching kits too.

And if Herman’s Amazing Direct Hair Colour doesn’t float your boat, here are a few more that we think you should take a look at, none of which are tested on animals, all suitable for vegans:


47 – My Little Pony Sparkle All The Way Knitted Jumper

We love unicorns, and we love Christmas jumpers so … Ta Dah! This My Little Pony knitted Christmas jumper is PERFECT! We want one, therefore we think the lady in your life might love it too. Isn’t she a little unicorn anyway?

“Be Happy, Be Bright, Be You” should be our new den motto, and with a sparkling elderflower fragrance, it’ll make the den smell lush too! Definitely one we’re hoping to get as our Secret Santa gift, rather than the Christmas socks we’re usually stuck with. Not that there’s anything wrong with Christmas socks, of course!

Does the woman in your life love the theatre? You’ll be glad you’ve found this Christmas gift guide for her 2016 then. This one’s a real bargain!

50 – Prosecco Doormat / IWOOT

Let’s face it, who could turn down a glass of Prosecco, especially after a really hard day at work. We love this doormat, a great little gift that any Prosecco-loving woman will really appreciate. Plus, it also serves as a warning for the kind of woman who lives behind that front door. Even we women can agree that’s got to be a great idea from time to time … right?
