Top 10 Gift for Women


Editorial Team

A can’t-fail present list for the partner, mum, sister, or best friend in your life this Christmas – from £32

How do you decide what gift to give a woman this Christmas? Well, if you’re female, ask yourself what you would like to receive. If it’s something you can rarely justify treating yourself to (like luxury perfume) then pop it on the list.

If you’re not a woman then ask yourself: ‘Would she buy this for herself?’ If the answer is no (and we’re talking non-essential luxuries here, not something you’d pick up during the weekly shop) then you’re probably on the right track.

Giving them something to unwrap that promises a moment of indulgence or relaxation is a powerful thing…


The luxury slippers

Slippers have risen up the ranks from purely functional to object of desire. They’re now as covetable as the must-have trainers of the season, push the boat out and treat her to a pair she’ll never want to take off. Ugg’s branded slingback style come in soft sheepskin and when we say Ugg has had a comeback this year, we seriously mean it. She'll love these – trust us.


The silk pyjamas

If she’s already the proud owner of a silk pillowcase, then upgrade her sleepwear in the same vein. Silk PJs are the epitome of luxury and are perfect for padding around the house in from 25 December through to the New Year and beyond. If she prefers to sleep in cotton, then an elevated set (try one with piped details) will instantly refresh her collection – and hopefully her sleep, too.


The new fragrance

Proof that good things come in small packages, this sophisticated scent by legendary perfumer Francis Kurkdjian celebrates the 250th anniversary of the iconic crystal house Baccarat and features heady notes of amber. A fragrance for both men and women, its eau de parfum intensity means a small spritz will go a long way.


The cashmere sweater

‘Anything cashmere’ is a good rule for gifts. Socks and scarves will always be gratefully received, but a sweater is extra special. Go classic – there’s room in every woman’s wardrobe for a crew or V-neck sweater in the softest yarn. Our cashmere is fully traceable so you can feel good about buying it and even read about its journey from the farm.


The ‘sit back and relax’ ingredient

What’s her tipple? Whether it’s an artisan gin or a booze-free Sipsmith, treating her to a bottle of something grown-up is an invitation to make some time to wind down – without having to share. Go the extra mile with a book of cocktail recipes or some chic new glassware.


The new smalls

A matching set of lingerie has the similar ‘ahhh’ effect as lighting a brand new scented candle or getting into a freshly made bed. The underwear pendulum can swing wildly from practical to naughty, but this celestial set from AND/OR is the perfect blend of sensual, playful and feel-good – the sort of thing she’d pick for herself (but would likely never get around to).
