Whether it's the gal pal who always has your back, your wonderful wife, doting daughter, or your mum these decadent gifts will be sure to make her smile on Christmas morning.
Right, I'm just going to put this out this out there - is it even Christmas if you don't enjoy a tipple or two over the festive season. So to ensure that all the festivities get off to a good start why not get those special women in your life their favourite tipple. Whether you're wrapping it up and popping it under the tree or bringing it as a contribution to the dinner table, a stylish bottle makes an excellent Christmas gift. A beautifully designed bottle of gin, rum, whiskey, vodka or liqueur won't just make someone smile as they open pour - it will also make then happy and merry whilst tucking into turkey.
Mermaid Gin? Is this the most beautiful bottle of gin you've ever seen? It's certainly up there for us and not your typical bottle of gin. The sea-green mermaid inspired Gin from Isle of Wight Distillery will certainly bring delight and smiles on Christmas morning. If you weren't in love enough already, this mermaid gin is presented in a sustainable, recyclable and biodegradable packaging to help preserve the environment by supporting marine conservation projects. As for the gin itself? It's a delight - a smooth yet complex blend of the freshness of organic lemon zest, the peppery notes in grains of paradise and a hint of sea air from rock samphire.
What better way to compliment your Gin that with this book 'How To Drink Gin' by Sue Telford. Discover how gin is made, get familiar with key botanicals, learn how to taste gin, `build' your own go-to gin cabinet, and create simple but amazing gin cocktails. This has to be the perfect gift for those who love gin, but don't necessarily know a lot about it. At only £12.99 you can't really go wrong. How To Drink Gin is available from Red door Press, Waterstones, and Amazon.
For the Beauty Girl
While a bottle of wine is nice, a palette of shimmery nude shadows is the real way to a beauty lover's heart for the holidays. And whether she is a makeup expert, candle hoarder, or eco lover, there's something for every type in this gift guide. Just be warned that you may feel inclined to buy some for yourself too and that's totally normal. Just like this really great Manna Kadar Costmetics Lux Shadow Palette that came my way. The Luxe Eyeshadow Palette contains endless colour combinations to create the perfect subtle or dark smokey-eye. With deep browns to soft and subtle beige, these creamy and highly pigmented powders are perfect for a day look or a night time look. What better way to go all glam over the Christmas period that with a gorgeous set of eyelashes to compliment a smokey eye. Kiss Lash Couture Naked Drama, Lacey that feature a split-tip false lashes that offer full, fluffy volume once applied.
Now I love nails and always add a bright pink, red or nude shade to my naked nails when I can, and I'm good to go. However, after a couple of days they begin to chip and reapplication becomes the bane of my life, going through tonnes of nail polish and remover in the process. So as you can imagine I'm always on the look out for some decent nail polish and for this time of year on the hunt for a gorgeous berry shade and a little sparkle. Leighton Denny always have the best colours this time of year just like these Vintage Chic and Free Spirit which are a matched made in heaven.
For Those Who Need More Relaxation...
Us girls need a little more of TLC and what better way to make sure they do than buying her something that will make sure she has more time to relax and recuperate in 2020.

For The Girl Who Loves a Sweet Scent...
Is it even Christmas without receiving a fragrance or two? And I have seen a couple of fantastic deals online and out and about in town. Fragrance is always a winner. My favourites this year are Jimmy Choo Fever and Calvin Klein Obsessed for Women. They both smell incredible and are long lasting which can be hard to find sometimes. A fairly new discovery for me is Jimmy Choo Blossom which is a floral fragrance that opens with bright and sparkling top notes of red berries blended with a citrus cocktail. A delicate heart of sweet pea and rose complements rich and sensual base notes of white musk and sandalwood.
For The Cosy One...
No Christmas is complete without a set of comfy pyjamas and fluffy socks. Am I right? These luxurious soft cotton fabric from Blackspade are super comfortable and so lightweight, it really does feel as if you don't have anything on. We have a pair of lilac and grey check bottoms that have an elasticated waist band to ensure you can eat as much turkey as you wish. These bottoms have been paired with a long sleeved grey tee that is actually long enough.
For The Girl Who Likes Lace...
So I guess the place we need to finish is lingerie and let's be honest, you can't go wrong with this one. Whether you're looking for something feminine, sexy, or lingerie that provides figure flattering appeal on your curves this beautiful lace underwear is always a great choice. The Net Effects Short from Knicker Locker features a subtle floral embroidery in a soft Rose Dust colourway for an elegant style. It offers a seamless finish under your clothes and co-ordinates with the Net Effects Bralette. Not only do they look elegant and super sexy they are very light and super soft to touch despite the intricate detailing of the lace.
