Christmas Gift Guide - For Her

I love buying Christmas presents for other people, and actually get far more joy going out and choosing gifts for people I care about and seeing them happy when they open them than receiving presents myself. Although it's something I always look forward to it can be easy to get stuck in a rut and not know what to get someone, so I thought I'd give you a little helping hand!
I've complied a list of gift ideas, ranging from major bargains and stocking fillers to more luxury and pricey gifts for a lucky recipient. Whether you find something in this post ideal for a loved one or not I hope it gives you so inspiration, maybe you see something you can add to your own Christmas wish

£10 and Under
1. Ghost Eclipse Bauble (£5). I think this is a gorgeous stocking filler! It's 5ml of the Ghost perfume which is a gorgeous scent of rose, moonflower, peach, woods and vanilla that comes in a sparkly bauble! So festive and a gift any woman would be happy with.
2. Soft Hands, Warm Kisses set in Coconut by The Body Shop (£7). This is a gift set with a coconut hand cream and coconut lip butter from The Body Shop. Both are fabulous products, and for every one sold TBS are donating 4.4p to Ethiopia to help provide safe water for families.
3. Cosmic Bath Bomb Set by Lush (£9.50).  In this festive little box you get two of Lush's most popular bath bombs, Twilight and Intergalactic, which is sure to be a gift 'out of this world'.
4. Happiness is.....journel (£7.99). This cute little book is a place for you to write about your thoughts, scribble some doodles and it has illustrations of things to be happy about.
5. Soap And Glory 3 Times Butter (£8). Soap and Glory is my go to for body butters, they're so moisturising and always smell incredible. This set includes 3 of the body butters - The Righteous Butter, the Smoothie Star Body Butter and the Sugar Crush Body Butter.
6. Tanya Burr Sugar Plum Nail Polish Set (£5). Tanya has brought out some great sets for Christmas, and this one is probably my favourite purely because of the gorgeous deep red nail polish shade! It comes with two sheets of nail stickers too, which are a great for the party season.

£25 and Under
1. Vitality Colouring Book With Pencils (£10.99). These colouring books seem to be everywhere at the moment! They're a great present for anyone creative or someone who struggles with anxiety or stress as the colouring has been shown to be very relaxing and calming. I especially loved this one as it comes with pencils so you don't have to buy them separately.
2. Smokey Eye Kit by Topshop (£20). This set includes three 'smoke sticks' in gorgeous shades, and the bestselling magic liner too. Topshop have come out with some brilliant beauty gift sets this year, so pop on over to their website to see the full range.
3. Knitted Heart Water Bottle And Socks Set (£16).  Christmas is wonderful, but with Winter comes the cold weather so this cute heart water bottle and knitted socks set from ASOS is a great gift to keep your loved one warm and cosy!
4. 12 Sampler House Festive Gift Set by Yankee Candle (£24.99). This is the perfect  gift for any candle lover! There are 12 mini candles all incased in a Christmas house box.
5. Johnny Loves Star Stud and Necklace Set (£24). I think for £24 this gold-plated jewellery set is just so beautiful, and they come incased in a lovely triangle box.
6. Essie All I Want For Christmas Gift Box (£24.99). Ideal gift for nail polish lovers! Essie is one of the best brands out there for nail polish, and this set has 5 great full size shades.

£25 to £45
1. A Woman's Face set by NARS (£29). The set contains one of NARS bestselling lip shades, Dolce Vita, in 3 different formulations; lipstick, matte lip pencil and velvet lip liner. The shade is dusty rose, which would suit most people and honestly, you can't go wrong with NARS.
2. Amber Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette by MAC (£30). Every girl loves MAC cosmetics, right? This palette is full of nine neutral eyeshadow shades, some with shimmer and some wonderfully matte.
3. Origins Superstar Minis (£35). This is a winner for any skincare or beauty lover. Origins is an amazing brand, and this set includes 7 of their bestselling products in mini form which is pretty great, it means you can try out them all without having to buy the full sized products.
4. Jo Malone perfume in Pomegranate Noir (£42).  As soon as the recipient sees the Jo Malone bag they'll know you've done well with this gift. Pomegranate Noir is the most dreamy fragrance with scents of juicy pomegranate, raspberry and plum with pink pepper and spicy woods. Ideal for this time of year too!
5. Pandora Birthstone Ring (£40). This pandora ring makes a really special gift, as not only is it a beautiful and luxury ring but the birthstone makes it feel personal and extra special.
6. Best Of Clinique Gift Set (£45). For the size of the products and the amount of things you get in this set I think it's a bargain and it'd make an especially lovely gift for a beauty loving Mum. You get 6 of Clinique's best selling and award winning products, including the Moisture Surge face cream, All About Eyes eye cream and a Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry.

1. One Shocking Moment Palette by NARS (£45). I can guarantee this is any makeup obsessives dream. The palette features 6 blushes and the cult classic Laguna bronzer.
2. Chance Eau de Parfum by Chanel (£49). I always think it's lovely to get a new fragrance at Christmas, and Chanel is just a classic that every woman will be thrilled with. I chose Chance to feature in this post because to me it combines such amazing notes that make a heavenly scent; pink pepper, jasmine, amber patchouli, white musks and vanilla. A floral, classic fragrance.
3. Zoeva Rose Golden Brush Set (£56.95). Zoeva brushes are very luxury, high quality makeup brushes and this set contains 8 of them in beautiful rose-gold packaging.
4. Fujifilm Instax Mini (£79). A camera that takes high-quality polaroid photos in an instant! This one comes with batteries, a strap and closeup lens included.
5. Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System (£120). The clarisonic uses a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to deeply clean, soften and smooth the skin. It also comes in 3 different colours; white, pink and black.
6. GHD V Gold Series Classic Styling Bundle (£200). If you know anyone who's into hair styling then this is a great luxury present for them. This GHD bundle comes with the classic ghd styler to create straight locks or perfect waves and curls, a ghd Air hairdryer, ghd heat protecting spray and ghd ceramic vented radical brush.
