The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide


Christmas is only 12 days away and if you're just like me, who likes to leave everything until the last minute, then there's quite a good chance that you still haven't bought your Christmas gifts for your friends and family. But don't worry, I've got you covered. I prepared the Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide, which includes 15 different gift ideas, suitable for a variety of tastes.
So if you don't have a clue what to give someone for this Christmas, then keep on reading.



Scents 

Scents can be  a very difficult choice when it comes to gift-giving. If you know the other person quite well, then perfumes won't represent a big problem to you. They are very thoughtful, luxurious and memorable gifts everyone loves to receive. The safest choice, in my opinion, would be a Jo Malone Blackberry and Bay perfume - possibly every blogger's favourite scent. It's sophisticated, fresh, not overpowering and would suit a variety of tastes. 


Candles

Because every woman likes her flat to smell amazing. And if you add the beautiful scent with a flawless packaging like Diptyque, you simply get the perfect combination. 


Skincare 

Every woman loves treating herself with good skincare; it's just like spa at home. Luna and Blue Moon from Sunday Riley, Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel or the entire Aesop collection are just some of the few products, I love to use and know every woman would be happy to receive on Christmas day. 


Haircare

Another thing that people don't really like to splurge on that often (but really should) is haircare, especially Oribe products, which are known to be quite expensive, but definitely worth the steep price. They are the perfect gift choice for special occasions - texturising spray, shampoo and conditioner, no matter what you choose, I promise you, you'll choose the right thing. 


Makeup 

Of course it's the best choice for us, makeup junkies. My favourite go-to makeup brand is Charlotte Tilbury - she offers absolutely stunning packaging and really great quality products, which I find to be the perfect gift for us, who like to collect makeup. 


Sunglasses

If you're thinking of purchasing a higher-end (luxury) product, but don't want to splurge on clothes or handbags, then definitely opt for sunglasses. My recommendation is the Dior So Real sunglasses, which were very popular in 2016, add an interesting feature to your outfit and definitely make you stand out in the crowd.


Handbags

It's such a classic choice to purchase a new handbag for Christmas. You don't have to break the bank to find the perfect handbag. High-street brands like Zara, Topshop, Asos etc. offer gorgeous handbags at affordable prices. But if you have the budget, then definitely spend it on a Saint Laurent, Victoria Beckham or Chloe handbag. 


Shoes / Sneakers, Boots, Silver shoes 

Sneakers are the best choice, if you're buying for someone, who is constantly on-the-go or just in general enjoys wearing sneakers on a daily basis. Adidas, Nike and now even Gucci make beautiful sneakers any sporty girl would like to own.
If you are leaning towards buying boots, then you should opt for ankle boots with a block heel, preferably suede, which is one the biggest trends for winter 2016/17.
Another trend any fashionista should own is silver shoes: they elevate any outfit with the addition of a surprise effect. 


Basic white shirt with a twist 

Basic white shirt is perfect for everyone with a classic taste. I think that everyone should own at least one good-fitting white shirt because it's such a staple wardrobe piece. In F/W time brands also introduced "the embroidery trend" which you can give to someone, who likes to take some risks and is not afraid to mix up their style.  


Pyjamas 

Pyjamas are the best gift for those (us), who like to stay in pyjamas all day long. I feel like pyjamas are a fashion item that nobody really thinks of buying for themselves. So it's nice to receive a pair of new pyjamas (or socks!) every year. It's like a staple Christmas gift, especially if they are made from silk! 


Neck Scarves 

Another trend and very thoughtful gift for women (or men), who dare to be different and enjoy mixing up fashionable pieces. 


blush pink everything

Blush Pink is the colour of the year and another big trend for the F/W 2016/17 time, so you can't go wrong if you purchase a blush pink item: sweaters, boots, scarves, tops, etc.


Minimalistic Jumpsuit 

Minimalistic (black structured) jumpsuit is a fashion piece that EVERY woman should own in their wardrobe. It's the most versatile fashion piece out there.


Backpacks

Backpacks are both very useful and fashionable items everyone needs in their wardrobe. Especially if you like to carry a LOT of things with you, just like I do. There's a variety of options to choose from: (faux) leather, canvas, military-inspired, minimalistic, oversized, structured, etc. 


Cosy Cardigan  

Cosy cardigans go in the same category as pyjamas - the best choice for those, who love to feel cosy and warm at home (which is pretty much everyone, right!?).

Thats it! These are my Christmas ideas, which will hopefully made your life just a bit easier. Good luck with your Christmas shopping and always keep in mind that gifts are not the most important factor during the holiday season. Remember to spend some quality time with your friends and family and just enjoy the holidays!

  1. The principle trouble for the ones which are managing no longer having coverage whilst being self employed is the overall price. There are in reality many coverage plans which might be available to the public. http://greentheorygarcinia.com/pure-asian-garcinia/
