For the Cake Lover
Baking has never been bigger following the huge success of The Great British Bake-off and of course the legend that is Mary Berry. Fans of Bake Off will recognise the rather snazzy KitchenAid stand mixer. This Empire Red mixer comes with a £499.50 price tag…perfect for you super generous lads! Shop it here.
For the Fragrance Lover
Megan from meganjean.co.uk is all about memories in fragrances this Christmas.
“One thing genuinely on my Christmas list this year is Miss Dior by Dior. It's my favourite perfume of all time, it has this beautiful floral scent without being too overbearing. My grandma bought it for me as my first ever, I guess, "expensive" perfume so it has a special place in my heart. It's sort of nostalgic I guess. It means a lot to me as well as smelling beautiful.” The Miss Dior perfume is available for £52, shop it here.
For the Luxury Lover
The Ted Baker Shannon phone case for iPhone 6 comes with a handy flip cover than when open reveals a company mirror. At £35 it’s the perfect way to keep a phone screen from getting scratched in the scary depths of a handbag, and the hard case back will give it good protection from drops. Shop it here.
For the Hair care Lover
Katie from thestylinguist.com says sassy party-ready hair is the way forward this festive season!
“Sparkly GHD’s…do I need to say more?! GHD is my ultimate go-to haircare brand; their straighteners create a stunning sleek look and are perfect for sassy party-ready curls too. This limited edition set happens to be a beautiful shimmery purple, and if that’s not a enough, there’s a gorgeous dark cherry OPI nail polish included for some extra pampering. I, for one, would be very happy to see this under the tree!” These are available for £139, click here to shop.
For the Coffee Lover
Coffee is a staple of many mornings, and this £143.99 (down from £159.99) Maximix Nespresso machine might just win you some serious points from your lady, not only does it look super sleek and take up barely any counter-top room, but it also takes the handy Nespresso capsules, which are available from most good food stores. Shop it here.
For the Beauty Lover
Beauty guru (and mum to maybe the most famous...and stylish blogging baby around) Alice from anniewritesbeauty.co.uk recommends a bit of pampering for your significant other this Christmas.
“My top pick for what to buy the significant lady in your life this Christmas is the Charlotte Tilbury The Gift of Goddess Skin! Beautiful skincare from such a fabulous brand would put a smile on the loveliest lady in your life's face!” Available for £39 here.
For the Candle Lover
Lifestyle blogger Becky from englishmum.com says a bit of tranquility might just get you a kiss this Christmas!
“My rule for any present (slightly paraphrasing William Morris) is that if you haven’t been asked for something specific, it’s best to choose something that’s beautiful and useable (or indeed edible) and I’d favour something luxurious that your other half might not splash out on herself. Neom candles smell divine and look gorgeous- this tranquillity scent is perfect for a relaxing bath or to delicately scent the bedroom. You’ll definitely get a kiss under the mistletoe for this one!” Shop these £45 candles here.
