What To Buy Your Most Stylish Friends This Christmas

What do you get the girl who has everything? If you’ve got a friend who’s always one step ahead of the fashion game – or a family member with a passion for all things luxurious – this list should provide you with some much-needed inspiration. These are the things I’ll personally be buying for my most stylish, discerning, notoriously-difficult-to-please friends and family this Christmas – and I can’t wait to see the looks on their faces when they unwrap the paper! There are gifts here to suit every budget, so take a look and get shopping!

Fashion and Beauty Gifts

Give a long-lasting gift with a bottle or two of luxury nail polish – for fashionable ladies, I recommend on-trend, cool-toned pastel shades (think mint, grey or lilac) from cult brands like Essie or OPI. Bundle them up with a pretty nail file and a high-quality bottle of cuticle oil (look for nourishing ingredients like jojoba oil or vitamin E) for the perfect home manicure kit. For girls who are into their fashion, an elegant, simple evening top can make an ideal gift, but be sure to pick one that fits their personal style (take note of what they’re wearing next time you see them), colouring and size – for pretty, budget-friendly options, head over to Table8 Women’s Fashion! If you really want to splash out, why not look at a gorgeous cashmere pashmina: they come in all kinds of beautiful colours and patterns (though I recommend a single block colour for maximum versatility) and can be worn in loads of different ways.

Gifts For The Home

Know a girl who’s a real homebody? Who never has a cushion out of place? Then gifts for the home are ideal – especially if you’ve visited them enough to have a good idea of their style. Jewellery is notoriously difficult to store, so a beautiful jewellery stand (minimalist designs and copper tones are very on-trend for 2015) is sure to be appreciated. Alternatively, a stylish cushion or throw (match it to the existing décor for a personal touch) makes a welcome addition to any home.

Leisure Gifts

When’s the last time you took up a colouring book and pencils? Adult colouring books (like this anti-stress mindfulness one, specifically designed to calm the mind) have taken off in a big way in the last couple of years – and along with a box of nice pencils, they make a gorgeous gift for the stressed-out person (or people) in your life. I was given one myself earlier this year, and I have to admit, it’s been a godsend in times of stress! Continuing with the book theme, I’m also planning to treat some of my loved ones to beautiful hardback cookbooks this Christmas – I recommend having a look around for one that suits the dietary requirements, preferences and personality of the friend or family member you want to treat.
