Gift Guide: For Women.

|
Oh yes, it’s finally December, the month to remember. It's time to open the advent calendars, decorate the tree and make your home feel like it's Christmas and not forgetting that very mischievous elf of course. So it only makes sense to add in another gift guide for all those lovely ladies in your life. When it comes to buying for females, you really are spoiled for choice, and at times it can be quite overwhelming trying to figure out exactly what they will love to open on Christmas morning. I have worked really hard with this gift guide to ensure that most budgets are covered and that you won't be short of some inspiration. I was so eager to want to share this one with you all and it's pretty amazing, but hopefully with this cheeky little gift guide buying for the ladies in your life will be less overwhelming.



Being a beauty girl, let's kick off this gift guide with a few beauty picks. I have to tell you about this really good palette that I came across from L.A Girl. I must admit that I had never heard of them before, but when I was asked if I'd like to try a few products I couldn't say no really. The Nudes Beauty Brick Eyeshadow Palette* comes in a black cardboard box with a transparent window provided which gives a peek to the eye shadow colors. There are 12 pans provided within the cardboard container. This is a collection of three matte and nine shimmer shades. All the eye shadows have different textures which is great if you like to tailor for different looks. Another pick that I have decided to share with the gift guide is a new mascara, now when it comes to mascara for me you cannot go wrong with L'Oreal, Benefit or Soap and Glory. But I came across this Elizabeth Arden Color Maximum Volume Mascara in Black* and I thought that it would be perfect to add into this gift guide. It comes in a golden color box packaging. The mascara comes in a black metallic tube, very plain looking, just like any other mascara. When choosing a mascara, I usually look at the wand first. I am really liking this mascara, which is a small wand, very fine, numerous and small bristles, which are really easy to use and define the eyes beautifully. Seeing as I am a beauty girl another product that I thought would be perfect for the Gift Guide for Women is a beauty box, as they are a bit of a thing at the moment. But what a great gift for someone. There are so many beauty boxes available and for all different budgets too. One that I would definitely recommend is Birchbox. You can get this beauty box on a month by month basis and can unsubscribe at any time. Or you can give either a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month subscription basis. Perfect. 

I have some beautiful gift ideas for you all this year. Amara have a lovely section of Christmas gifts, and I picked a couple out to share with you guys. Amara have a lot of expensive items on their website, but these two picks are very affordable and are absolutely gorgeous. The first up is this Ted Baker Brogue Manicure Set - Thistle* which is so so cute. This elegant set is perfect for placing in an everyday bag or whilst travelling, contained within a dainty case. The interior reveals an iconic floral lining and a selection of rose gold tools to prep nails, including emery boards, scissors, clippers and a mirror. A great gift idea for the beauty enthusiast, team with matching gifts available separately to complete the look. Being a lover of stationary I would only be too pleased to receive these adorable Kate Spade Bow Tie Paper Clips so if you want to add a touch of elegance to her work space get her these Bow paper clips from Kate Spade New York. A set of 12 paperclips, they are metallic gold in colour and come presented in a sophisticated black & cream gift box.

What is Christmas without a small mention of chocolate, but it means so much more when it's extra indulgent. Beech's Fine Chocolate* has an amazing selection this year. I'm so obsessed with truffles, so I am more than sure that there is something for everyone on their website, you can choose from Champagne, Anglesey Sea Salted Caramel, Pink Champagne, Prosecco and so much more. Now if they are more of a foodie, there are a few other products that you could get for them. The Nut Kitchen offers a range of artisan nut pastes and spreads would be perfect for foodies who love to bake or want a delicious topping for toast, pancakes and ice cream. Our favourite is this festive box of luxury nut spreads*, these would be perfect over the most indulgent month of the year.. For a vegan and gluten free option, Elizabeth D Bakes is most definitely a fantastic choice. There are a range of enticing bakes available from brownies, loaves, low sugar cakes, and lots of festive treats. We tried this Cranberry, Pistachio, and Orange Stollen Gift Box* which is gluten free and tastes amazing.

Find Me A Gift also have a fantastic selection of Christmas gifts for everyone and I have picked out a few to share with you that I am very excited about. If you follow the blog, you will know that I have a slight obsession with Rose gold, I guess you could call me a Rose Gold magpie. It's just so beautiful. But I have the perfect gift that I wanted to add into this gift guide. This Rose Gold Elephant Ring Holder* it is just perfect. Standing proud and with his trunk raise in a joyful trumpet, the metal elephant will make a pretty little ornament as well as a useful storage device. You slide your rings onto his trunk, where they will be stored safely. Elephants are supposed to have amazing memories, and certainly they'll help you with yours because you'll never forget where you put your rings again when you have such a special place to put them. While we are talking about the Rose Gold obsession, I have something special that I am sure any special lady will be glad to open on Christmas morning. Monsoon Rose Gold Eau De Parfum I think we all need to take a moment to simply admire the beautiful packaging and rose gold detailing of the perfume. The scent and the beautifully designed teardrop bottle, with the signature rose gold colour prominent throughout. It's so beautiful. I have to say that Monsoon have done really well and they have designed a lovely bottle that looks great on display.

I have left the best until last, something a little more personal is always a great way to show your loved one you care. Now there are so many different personalised gifts that you can seek out for them but I think that something that could come in handy, or useful would be a great gift. Just like this personalised Tea Mug* from Bags of Love. A personalised tea mug is a beautiful gift, which can feature a few treasured photos or designs, custom printed mugs will be a family favourite in any household and make an extra special gift. Tea makes everything better, but this personalised tea mug will definitely make any brew experience even more enjoyable. This Personalised Bar Necklace* will sure turn their head this Christmas. This gorgeous necklace features a bar hanging vertically from an 18 inch chain; it's a simple but striking design, suitable for everyday wear. This pendant is available in a range of colours, to suit your their tastes and complexion; silver, gold and rose gold; or if a trendy two-tone dipped look is more their cup of tea, they also offer silver dipped in gold, silver dipped in rose gold, black dipped in gold or black dipped in rose gold.  Phew we got there in the end. After reading this lengthy gift guide for a women, I really do hope that I have helped make buying for them a little easier? I am sure that you are not short of a few ideas in the hope to inspire you and make their Christmas perfect.
