Beauty bits: If you want to stray from the typical Boots Christmas sets, try something a bit different instead, like makeup brushes. Any makeup lover would be beyond happy to receive a Real Techniques set under the tree this year and they are always on sale in Boots and other pharmacies. Christmas boxes from Lush will go down a treat with bath bomb and skincare lovers, and won’t break the bank either. These little gifts are perfect for Secret Santa or even your sister.
Handbags: If you’re looking for a present for your significant other or even your mam, a handbag is a good pick. Handbags are easier to shop for than clothes for a fashion lover as sizes and personal taste are hard to get right, no matter how well you know the person. High street shops like New Look and River Island make good quality bags for any student budget. If you’re looking to splurge, try a reasonably priced on trend designer like Kate Spade or Radley.
Perfume: For the most part, perfume is something that girls will never buy for themselves unless it’s on sale in the airport duty free. Make sure you find out what kind of scents they like, as it can be quite a personal gift to give. YSL Black Opium, Vera Wang Princess or Marc Jacobs Daisy are three popular scents that are versatile.
Vouchers: If you’re really stuck, vouchers are a failsafe option for any girl. Try catering to their interests and only use an One4All voucher as a last resort. A voucher for a spa treatment or nail salon would be a unique gift to find under the tree this year, giving them the freedom to choose what they want themselves.
Stocking fillers: Pyjamas, candles, books and chocolate are all a girl really needs in life.
