With Christmas creeping closer and shopping for gifts made even more difficult due to the closure of non-essential shops, now is the time to start prepping your Christmas shopping. As most shopping will be done online this year, we should be mindful of increased delivery times and giving ourselves extra time to return items.
If you’re struggling with what to buy the lovely ladies in your life, here is a gift guide to help…
Silk Pyjamas & Pillowcase
Pyjamas can be a pretty safe buy, however, splurging on a luxury and high–quality pair at Christmas will let your girl know you’ve put that extra bit of effort in. We all have our favourite comfy pyjamas, the pair with holes that are three sizes too big. As pyjamas are what most of us have been living in throughout 2020, wouldn’t it be lovely to treat someone to a slightly more special pair? To go with these, a silk pillowcase is an indulgent gift and the combination of the two almost guarantees a good night’s sleep.
A great place to start browsing is Lily Silk, which can be found here!
Make Your Own Cocktail Kit
We are all missing boozy nights at a cocktail bar with our friends, so what better gift than to bring the bar to the living room (guidelines permitting). You can buy cocktail sets to fit any budget; pair with their favourite spirit, some classy cocktail glasses or a cocktail recipe book, this will be greatly appreciated by any recipient. Cue drunken Christmas karaoke in the living room…
Personalised gifts will always score you extra points. It shows you have gone that extra mile, buying a gift you know that special someone will appreciate. You can choose the jewellery based on the individual’s personal style and can pretty much get anything personalised. From chunky statement bracelets and gold hoops to dainty silver chains, engraved with the person’s initials, star sign or birth year. These can also fit a range of budgets. An independent business which is great for personalised pieces is called ‘By Nouck’, found here!
Bullet Journal/Self–Care Planner
At a time with so much uncertainty, having some form of routine and constant elements in our daily life is comforting. Many people have recognised the importance of self-care in lockdown and if this is something that resonates with the woman you’re buying for, they may well love a self-care journal. This type of journal is designed for you to spend 5 minutes per day writing down what you are feeling grateful for and focusing on the positives of life. To do lists, daily goals, weekly schedules, things that are bothering you etc. This can be a really thoughtful and caring gift.
House Plant Subscription
You can now get a monthly subscription for pretty much anything – check out Cohorted’s Luxury Beauty Subscription if you haven’t already. When researching this article, I discovered a great company (linked below) who offer a house plant a subscription service. Now, with people spending increased time in their homes, a greater focus has been placed on our surroundings and the appearance of our indoor space. Bloom Box Club delivers a new plant to your doorstep every month. It is quite literally the gift that keeps on giving! Check out Bloom Box Club here!
Whatever you chose to gift the lucky ladies in your life, remember they will always be grateful.
At the end of the day, it’s the thought that counts! Merry Christmas x
