Christmas Gift Guide - For Women

With Christmas only a matter of weeks away, it's time for my annual gift guides. I really enjoy putting these together every year because I end up feeling inspired by all the amazing suggestions that are sent my way. Though it's worth mentioning that I only include products in my guides that I would recommend and items that I genuinely think would make fantastic gifts. So, without further ado, here is my Christmas Gift Guide, for women.

Winter special buys from Aldi - from £3.99
The first products featured in my gift guide this year are these winter special buys from Aldi. I think this bundle would make a great collection of goodies for Christmas, suitable for mum's, grandmas, sisters, aunties, friends and so on. The Ladies Blanket Scarf retails at £8.49 and is available in four different designs; grey, teal, blue checked, and pink checked. It's the perfect way to stay warm, yet stylish this winter. The Ladies All Over Print Pyjamas and Ladies Smart Phone Gloves are also bargains, at just £8.99 and £3.99 each. I know that I'd be delighted if I found these under my Christmas tree.

Candles from Wax Lyrical - £18.99 each
Is it just me, or does everyone love candles? I have one lit all year round, but there's something about lighting candles in winter, especially at Christmas time. These two festive scented candles from Wax Lyrical again would make excellent gifts for most people out there, whether they are male or female. Wax Lyrical's Colony collection has added three new scents to their already impressive Christmas collection; Fireside, Alpine Retreat and Starry Night, alongside all-time favourites such as Vanilla & Cranberry, Cinnamon Spice and Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh. With such a variety of festive fragrances and scented products available, you can easily fill your home with gorgeous festive scents throughout winter.

Aqua Manda Bath Oil & Perfume - £7.49 & £27.50 
The iconic perfume from the 60s and 70s is back and guaranteed to take you on a trip down memory lane. Aqua Manda Perfume is made with the essential oils of mandarin, ginger, lavender, patchouli, cinnamon, and other aromatic herbs. The fragrance has a top note of Mandarin with an Oriental base notes. It's a
fresh and longlasting scent which is suitable for both daytime and evening wear. The Bath Oil has the same fragrance as the classic Aqua Manda Perfume and is perfect for a pamper session. HoMedics Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser - £27.99 The HoMedics Dream Ultrasonic Diffuser is ideal for those who like to take care of themselves, or are in dire need of some TLC. It's a clever little light-up diffuser that uplifts aroma, to help you relax and to enhance your wellbeing, with up to five hours of continuous runtime. Included is a small starter kit, with orange and peppermint oils that provide a natural aroma to improve your mood.

Chase Pink Grapefruit & Pomelo Gin - £36.45
Gin is all the rage at the moment, whether it's regular gin or the flavoured variety. 
Made with Williams GB gin as the base spirit and infused with a delicate range of eight botanicals including; juniper, orange peel, licorice, elderflower, and bitter almond before distillation in a copper gin still with pink grapefruit and pomelo peel. I've tried a few different gin's lately, and this is a new found favourite. It's such a light and fresh spirit, with hints of citrus fruits. You can find this on offer at the moment at 31Dover.

Nina Ricci Nina Eau de Toilette Spray - £38.00
Now, who doesn't like to receive a bottle of perfume at Christmas time? Nina Ricci Nina Eau de Toilette tends to go down well with ladies of all ages with it's charming and seductive scent. There are lots of different scents available over on the Fresh Fragrance website, a couple of which have taken my fancy this year.

Champagne Afternoon for Two
 - £50.00
A luxurious afternoon tea for two at a hotel, restaurant, cocktail lounge or tea room? Where do I sign up? The Champagne afternoon for two experience from Red Letter Days is bound to put a smile on anyone's face, especially when the recipient realises that they can choose their own destination, time and date. This is a great option for when you are stuck for ideas and want to gift something a little different, something with a bit of pizzazz.

Flamigni Dark Chocolate & Amarena Cherry Panettone - £24.50
This luxurious panettone is ideal for foodies out there, or for anyone who loves a delicious treat at Christmas time. This version from Flamigni puts a twist on the classic Christmas bread that we all know and love by adding dark chocolate and cherries to the mix. It is presented in gorgeous gift wrap and tied up with string, ready to be gifted on Christmas day. I can imagine my whole family tucking into big slices, accompanied by mugs of hot chocolate with lashings of cream. This panettone and other varieties available online at Sous Chef.

Hallmark Itty Bitty's - £6.00 each
If you know someone who loves everything cute and cuddly, or who's a fan of Disney, Marvel, DC, then Itty Bitty's may be for them! There are so many different characters collect, with new ones released often. Cruella de Vil, Maleficent and Tigger are three of the latest Itty Bitty's and I think they are my favourite one's yet! Visit the website for more information, to purchase, or to see the other characters in the range.

  4. Perfume can be a nice Christmas gift. I personally like the boxes which contains many small bottles of nicely scented perfumes, as variety is the spice of life. Allows us to become familiar with a variety of blends / brands / scents. May choose a particular perfume to suit the particular occasion, etc.
