The time is fast approaching. Those weeks of nervous anticipation, worry and stress. What should I get her for Christmas? What if I mess up? What if she doesn’t like it and I totally ruin her day? All those questions running around your head as you frantically rack your brain for a spark of inspiration that just refuses to ignite. Never fear, because we’ve carefully monitored the latest trends, classic designs and brands that always deliver so that you have a few ideas up your sleeve should that sacred ‘wish list’ fail to materialise as it so often does!
Go down the beauty route
Now, obviously you have to be a little careful approaching the giving of a wrinkle reduction cream, but let’s just say this first idea is definitely one for the slightly more mature lady in your life. Être Belle Cosmetics make a fantastic range of products called Être Belle Skin Vision. This is at the forefront of scientific research in skin care and anything from this range will really show that you not only care and take an interest in the wellbeing of your lady friend but also that you are not afraid to spend a little to make a difference to her health and wellbeing. As an equally dazzling alternative with a bit of a brand advantage, Chanel do a great luxury skin regeneration and perfume gift set that would go down well with women of all ages.
Every woman loves a handbag
No matter what her particular style may be you can rest assured that the special woman in your life will have plenty of time for handbags. There is something incredibly sensual about a leather item and a handbag is, alongside a pair of luxury shoes perhaps, the greatest example of this. Picture her face on Christmas morning as you hand her a generous sized box, gift-wrapped in sumptuous paper. The paper carefully opened and set aside for next year (if she’s anything like my mother!) to reveal a beautiful box with the name of a top designer on it. Her heart begins to beat a little faster and she lets out a little squeak of anticipation. She opens the box and her heart is yours. Now you probably know her taste better than anyone, but some great names to look out for are Burberry, Dior, Parade, Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, Hermes and Coach. All feature in the top 10 selling brands of the year.
Spa your way to success
If she says she doesn’t want any more things or she has no idea what she wants and has dozens of handbags, beauty products and you want something more luxurious than a few books or some new music, then not much can beat a full spa day with a couple of treatments, access to the pool and sauna and perhaps a champagne lunch. You might have to join her, but the pleasure she’ll get from it will do for the both of you!
