On the first day of giftmas…
It’s officially giftmas season y’all! I’ve been fighting the urge to post these guides even earlier than usual this year, but as it seems like we’ll need to get our skates on and order Christmas pressies even earlier this year to make sure they get where they need to go on time I figured now was a great time to start posting my recommendations for this year.
Today’s ideas are for that special lady in your life; the big ticket presents sure to make them feel spoilt, which they deffo need after the crapola-ness of 2020. Whether your budget is in the low double digits or you’re after something super swanky, I’ve got lots of ideas below for all your best gal pals, for sisters, mums and that fancy aunty too.
Now, I know this is a pretty big category – and if you know you and your bestie are polar opposites, this guide might miss the mark little. But, without *ahem*, blowing my own trumpet too much, and with some notable exceptions, buying gifts that I know I’d love to receive (and am a little reluctant to actually give to someone else instead of hoarding them all for me…) has never steered me far wrong in the past!
A delicate necklace in the metal colour she always wears, a beautiful silky scarf and a pair of snuggly bed socks are all safe bets – especially if paired with a big old slab of her favourite choccy and a mini bottle of her favourite fizz. As a general rule, I like to think about gifts as things I’d never justify for myself as a treat at another time, whether because they’re a little pricey for what they are (looking at you, Jo Malone candles!) or just feel a bit too indulgent for every day.
So let’s get stuck into my first lot of gift recommendations this year:
Come back tomorrow for the second gift guide for this year: for him!
