Gift Guide: For Her.

Gift ideas for the girls…

Every year when I do these guides, I try to curate a gift guide list that we can forward on to our loved ones and say “just get me anything from here!”.
I know Christmas is supposed to be full of surprises but the way I see it: 1) I don’t want to end up with something I don’t want or use, I always feel bad when I have to get rid of gifts, and 2) if I give Jordan and my brother (the two people I spend Christmas day with) the list early enough, I completely forget by the time Christmas rolls around so it literally is a surprise.

Star print PJs // Jo Malone White Moss & Snowdrop Candle // Florence Welch Useless Magic // leopard print scarf // Chloe Nomad Perfume

I think gifting is all about buying people gifts they want but wouldn’t necessary buy themselves – luxe PJs, a beautifully-scented candle, the latest palette… those lovely buys that you always dream of owning but never buy for yourself because there’s always something more practical to pay for instead.
I don’t think you need to overdo it either, I usually ask Jordan for maybe a beauty gift set and then a bottle of gin I haven’t tried, Lush treats or a new coffee table book. Cosy gifts that keep me happy!

Chanel Le Creme Main Riche // Gucci Jordaan Loafers // Chupi Star Sign Necklace // H&M Lace Top // Chantecaille Palette // Polene Bag // Anthro Hair Clips

It’s all in the details…

I think the below image pretty much sums up what I hope to receive at Christmas every year! Doesn’t it just look like the perfect parcel?! A pair of PJs to spend all of Boxing Day in, a top-up of my favourite Chancel hand cream and some little accessories that are oh so me.

I’ve put together the perfect edit of pressies below, so hopefully this is all you need for gift inspo for your sister or bestie, or the ultimate list to email to your boy as one big hint!

What have you got on your wishlist this year?

  • I totally agree with you, Christmas is the time to buy gifts for others that they wouldn’t splurge on themselves. It’s one of my favorite parts of Christmas to get people things they have been wanting for a long time and then seeing their faces light up once they open it up Chrismtas morning. It’s so rewarding.

    PS I’m dying to pick up the new Jo Malone White Moss & Snowdrop cologne!

    I wish the formula of “something they want but wouldn’t buy themselves” worked for the people in my life! In the past when I’ve bought more luxe things for my in-laws, they end up not using them because they are “too nice.” And then they end up buying me crap I don’t need/want because they seem focused on giving multiple gifts to open instead of just one nicer thing. I dunno, gifts are just weird. I’d rather not do them at all to be honest! My friends and I don’t really buy gifts for each other and then when we have the spare cash we buy our own nice things for ourselves.

  • I love that pearl encrusted palette! Great ideas, I always feel like I buy people the same things over time. I need to update my gift repertoire.
