With less than 5 weeks to go, it’s definitely time to start planning your Christmas gifting, especially if you’re buying for someone with very fashionable expectations.
If she hasn’t been dropping any hints and you’re dreading hitting the high street without a plan of action, fear not – whether you’re on the hunt for a gift for your girlfriend, wife, sister, or mother-in-law, here’s THE fail safe guide to shopping for her.
She’ll thank you for cosy cashmere
Great quality cashmere is worth an investment and will see her through many a chilly day. Unsure of her favourite colours? As tempting as it may be, avoid Christmas prints as the novelty will wear off quickly.
Instead, play it safe and opt for neutrals; grey marl, black, navy and camel colour ways will ensure they have longevity and are ideal for work.
A great handbag will earn you brownie points
It goes without saying that most women love a fabulous handbag. Christmas is a time for treats, so instead of going for a simple, work-friendly black tote of which she probably has 3 or 4 of, a stylish colour block number or a ladylike printed shoulder bag are an easy win.
Look for little details like a gold chain (she can wear it over party season), cross-body straps (great for weekends and nights out) and inside card pockets in smaller bags (so she can go purse-free).
Chic jewellery will impress
If she has her ears pierced, invest in sparkly studs or small, neat hoops that she can wear everyday. Quirky pearl and diamond accents are ageless, but if she’s practical and tends to be a minimalist when it comes to decoration, a watch may be the best option. A metallic strap will make it feel special.
Luxurious pyjamas for lounging
You can’t go wrong with a great pair of silky pyjamas, and they’ll be perfect for post-Christmas and pre-New Years lounging. Silken pyjamas are also increasingly popular as day wear so pick a classic striped pair or a simple print so she can make the most out of your gift.
