With Christmas creeping ever closer, time is running out to find that perfect gift. Whether it’s for a sister, girlfriend, friend or colleague getting the perfect gift is never easy.
Here are a few of our top tips to help you out.
Clothes and Jewellery
Ladies dresses may seem like a minefield of potential present mishaps, but there are a few key rules you can follow to ensure your gift selection goes smoothly. Keeping it simple is the best way to achieve gift greatness! Black dresses, for example, can be an easy way to avoid risk – chic, sophisticated and classic a ladies black dress can often be the perfect way to treat her without too much of a fashion gamble. Just make sure you get her size right!
A key consideration when buying jewellery for the lady in your life is to find out, does she prefer silver or gold? Most women find a side and stick to it, so knowing this is crucial. Once this has been decided then opt for simple, classic stones for a look she can enjoy for years.
Gadgets, often instantly put straight into the ‘gifts for men’ pile, can make the perfect Christmas gift for tech savvy men and women alike.
A kindle is an almost fool proof gift idea for anyone who loves to read. Add that personal touch and download all her favourite books on to it in advance.
Camera phone lenses are a cool, quirky and fun gift idea. You can buy various lenses which add extra features and depth to your snaps from your phone. From tri-pods to colour filters and fish eye lenses, she will be a budding photographer in no time and will really enjoy flexing her creative muscles!
Home décor and accessories make the perfect Christmas gift, as those perfect finishing touches to a room are something which everybody loves, but it is sometimes difficult to afford to splash out on that gorgeous cushion or candle yourself.
Why not get creative this Christmas and make some cushion covers? Craft shops throughout the UK offer a wide range of fabrics in various different styles. Perhaps take her favourite dress with you and try to make some fabrics for colours and styles to be certain you pick something out she will like.
Then get sewing! Cushions and pillow covers are really simple to make for even the novice sewer and there are loads of video tutorials available to help out.
Cushions can also be sewn relatively easily without a sewing machine.
If DIY isn’t your thing, then try sites such as Etsy to find products which are unique, handmade and affordable. You can search for something specific that she likes to see a range of products relating to this.
There is no greater way to a woman’s heart than through her stomach! That’s the saying…right!? From chocolate to chutneys, Christmas is the perfect time to invest in those delectable treats you might not throughout the rest of the year.
Find out her favourite foods and create a small hamper full of these goodies – you can buy empty hampers relatively cheaply online, and buy products from local grocers and bakers to keep these locally sourced, good for the environment and affordable.
Happy shopping and happy holidays!
