Hello all, it's nearly the first of December, eeek! If you're anything like me, you're itching to start the Christmas celebrations without people telling you 'It's too early.' I can understand that for some people, the tradition of gift giving becomes such a stressful event that it ends up detracting away from the actual celebration. Well, you need not worry, for on it's way is a selection of hand picked gifts for all those awkward buggers who you can't buy for!
MAC Lipstick or Makeup in General
First up, any girl or woman will appreciate a good Mac lipstick but often knowing what shade to get deters you from picking one up. Well, fear not. After a little research I have come to the conclusion that of all the Mac Lipsticks; Cherish, Kinda Sexy and Velvet Teddy are the three colours that are most likely to suit all skin tones. They're also very wearable shades that your loved one can wear for almost any occasion. Of course, if they're partial to a red lip or two, you may go for the likes of Ruby Woo or Russian Red. Either way, lipstick is a great gift idea.
Bunny Slippers or regular (boring) Slippers
Okay I know this always comes across as a boring present but I really think it's a nice gift to give. You may know that your loved one is a whimsical elf and would find slippers with bunny ears hilarious, in which case look no further! Although, generally any woman of any age would find practical use out of a pair of slippers. Plus, they aren't on the expensive side (depending on where you go) if the gift is for an acquaintance.
Gloves or woollen accessories
Just like slippers, gloves are an easy purchase that will please just about any personality. You can even earn extra points for going out of your way to find a pair that match their favourite coat etcetera etcetera...
Clutch Bags , Purses or Bags
Now I often find people shy away from this sort of gift as it does involve a great deal of personal choice for these items. However, when you have a clutch bag as detailed and as intricate as this one, they become the sort of item your loved one may never splash out on themselves. I often like to buy gifts that may be too expensive to warrant them buying, but will be something they've always liked. Clutch bags, purses or regular bags make great gifts and when boxed up, make a gorgeous present to unwrap.
Perfume is, in my opinion, one of the best gifts you can buy a woman. Generally, most women have a scent that is favourite. For example, Christina Aguilera By Night is as much a part of me as an arm or a leg. However, that doesn't mean I wont ever wear another fragrance and most people are likely to be the same. A lovely fragrance to try is Diesel Loverdose Tattoo. It comes in a gorgeous bottle and has a lovely clean, distinctive scent.
Other gifts to consider are books, underwear sets (providing you know their size), house decorations or even decorations for their Christmas tree. The thing to keep in mind is that gifts are not meant to be super expensive, they are supposed to show that you have thought about that person and what they may like. They aren't what Christmas is allll about and remind yourself of this when you're getting stressed about gifts! Plus, if I can give any advice it's to buy gifts early. The earlier the better as by the time Christmas comes around, you're away from all the busy shops and free to sit in with a cup of tea and a festive film.
