I love this time of the year, the nights get longer, everyone seems much happier and uplifted and everyone gets together to watch either a nativity play or a pantomime. This time of year just seems much more cosy.
I love Christmas because it gives me an excuse to spoil my family. I have always loved giving, and always make time to give to those less fortunate than myself. I believe that this is a trait I took from my nan. She always used to get myself and my brother the most amazing gifts.
This year I thought I’d do a gift guide aimed at partners or children who are stuck for gift ideas for the special women in their lives.
Believe it or not, most women don’t actually want expensive gifts or luxury items. Many women/mothers would rather some quality “me” time. Being a parent is tough, you rarely get any time to yourself and I mean rarely. Tell a youngster you’re off to the toilet and they automatically translate it to ‘family meeting being held in the bathroom immediately”.
Why not create a box of treats for that special someone? Include things such as nail varnish, facemasks such as 7th heaven, a bath bomb and maybe some new body wash. A thoughtful gift that isn’t so expensive.

Lead me to a women who doesn’t like frequent gifts… hmm, bit of a struggle right? Why not gift them a years subscription to a subscription box of their choice? My personal favourite it the Bettybox. Bettybox is a subscription box which is aimed to make a certain week within a women’s month that bit bearable. Birchbox and Glossybox are equally as good.
Ah perfume, I cannot leave the house without it. Besides chocolate stores I am at my happiest when I am sourcing a new perfume for myself.
It doesn’t have to be an expensive one, many stores such as Next have dupes for big perfumes at a fraction of the price. My ultimate favourite at the moment is Just Pink by Next which is £14 for 100ml. What a bargain. Although I am yet to find a scent from there that isn’t lovely.
Sticking with pampering products, if the lady you love takes pride in her appearance I highly recommend grabbing some of Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula range. Perfect during the cold winter months to hydrate and keep her skin looking radiant and smooth.
These products have become a go to for my daily cleansing routine.
If your lady likes to wear make up why not update her make-up collection? Believe it or not, make up doesn’t actually have that long of a life and although most of us women don’t like to throw away our make up as it’s not exactly cheap. Why not see what products she uses and purchase new ones. It’s the little things.
There are lots of things you could gift the special ladies in your life this Christmas but ultimately the greatest gift you could ever give is your time. Life goes so fast, be sure to spend time with loved ones.
