Deciding on what to get your friends and family for Christmas can be difficult, especially if you are shopping for someone who is hard to buy for and never gives any clues as to what they want. Our Christmas Gift Guide will hopefully help you find the perfect gift for everyone, whether it is your mum or dad, a sibling, or a partner, we have something for everyone.
We are starting with gift ideas for the women in your life, these gifts are something that all women would love to receive on Christmas morning.
This is something that everyone needs, and often people will not buy it for themselves. Skincare gift sets are a nice touch as it makes it feel more special. Biossance offers great skincare gift sets for Christmas, like their Illuminate Overnight Kit (£45) which includes Squalane + Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum that exfoliates and brightens overnight, Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream that hydrates and lifts the eye area, and a full-size Squalane + Omega Repair Cream that deeply nourishes.
Another great skincare gift set is the GLOSSYBOX Skincare Christmas Gifting Set(£20) worth £57.50, it includes a 3-in-1 Moisturiser, an Eye Boost Cream, and a Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser.
If you are wanting a stocking filler, this is a great little in-expensive addition. Pura Cosmetics Revitalising Raspberry Lip Scrub (£4.99) has a berry-bursting flavour and ultra-gentle exfoliating properties.
Buying someone their favourite make-up products is a fantastic gift idea, but if you are looking for a new product to gift to your loved one why not try a lipgloss.
My by Mahina Makeup Diamond High Shine Gloss (£8.99) is our favourite at the moment, it is an ultra moisturising clear lipgloss, animal cruelty-free and combined with natural ingredients to give a silver reflection look.
For make-up removal, why not gift someone Reusable Makeup Removal Pads (£15.80) which are a better alternative for the environment than disposable make-up removal pads.
There are so many different products for hair depending on your hair type. Haircare is important as it keeps your hair healthy and it may be something that you would not necessarily buy yourself, that is why it is a great gift idea. The new SUSINUM Luxuriant Hair Oil (£39) by Haer contains Egyptian Blue Lotus extract, Nourishing Moringa, health-giving Pomegranate, regenerative Black Cumin and stimulating Watermelon, among other 100% natural botanical origin ingredients to deliver glossy healthy hair benefits.
For someone who is more outgoing and likes to switch up their look, why not try a semi-permanent treatment that adds shine for up to 6 washes. The Hair Boss Clear Shine Gloss Semi-Permanent Dye (£9.98) transforms dull hair, adding a shine without changing the tone, it gives salon-quality shine from your home.
Always a good gift idea, treat the women in your life to some new hair tools. There are plenty of different hair tools available, hairdryers, curlers, straighteners, wavers, and it may be hard to find the right one. The Dyson Airwrap styler (£399) is designed to smooth and control frizz-prone hair, it curls, waves, smooth, and drys with no extreme heat meaning it will not damage hair as much as other curlers.
If you do not want to spend as much, there are cheaper hair tools, for example, the Mark Hill Pick 'N' Mix range means that you can buy the handle (£17.99) and all the different heads separately, so it is like having multiple tools in one. At Boots.com the range is currently 3 for 2, cheapest product free, meaning you could get the handle, the mermaid waver head (£16.99) and the medium curl barrel (£16.99) for £34.98.
With the cold weather upon us, everyone needs a hat or a scarf. This is a lovely present idea for those who love to get outdoors, go on walks, or even those who appreciate a good silk scarf. Powder Designs offer unique and exquisitely bold accessories and gifts. The Elephant Parade Satin Square Scarf (£25) or the Karina Hat (£28) are a great gift.
Fragrance gift sets
A fragrance gift set can be a lovely gift and feel a little more special than just the fragrance alone. Yardley London offers lovely fragrance gift sets with different floral scents, for example, the English Lavender Fragrance Collection (£10) includes the lavender fragrance as well as a candle in the same scent.
This is always such a special gift for someone you love, a nice piece of jewellery is guaranteed to put a smile on their face. Pandora is a great place to find lovely jewellery that will not cost you a fortune, the Round Sparkle Halo Necklace (£70) is a simple but beautiful necklace.
Or for someone who has lots of jewellery but nowhere to store it, Pandora also offers jewellery boxes, for example, the Pink Travel Jewellery Box (£25).
A simple but lovely gift idea, people do not often buy nice stationery for themselves. If you are buying for someone that you know appreciates good stationery, try Pen Heaven who offers traditional drawing and writing tools, as well as writing and card sets. Lamy Lx Rose Gold Fountain Pen (£42.76) and Sorrento Large Leather Journal (£17.99) make a lovely gift for writers.
Loungewear and Pyjamas
This year most of us have worn loungewear more than anything else, which makes it the perfect gift for Christmas 2020. Asos have lots of different loungewear sets, like the Asos Design mix & match lounge set (£20).
You can not go wrong with a nice pair of pyjamas for Christmas. These Next Button Through Pyjamas (£38) are a lovely gift for any woman you are buying for.
There are so many different technology gadgets out there that make perfect gifts, if you have a fitness lover in the family a Fitbit is great for tracking fitness goals. Fitbit Versa 3 (£199.99) is the motivational health & fitness smartwatch with built-in GPS, Active Zone Minutes and music experiences to keep you moving.
Another one you can not go wrong with, a book on the receiver's favourite topic is a great idea. Cooking books, gardening books, books about fashion, books about home decor, the list is endless. Good Vibes, Good Life: How Self-Love Is the Key to Unlocking Your Greatness (£8) is a number 1 bestseller on Amazon.com and would make a great gift to someone this year.
