Ellis Tuesday's Christmas Gift Guide: For Her


Christmas Gift Guide For Her Blog

Well here it is, the first of my Christmas gifting series, one that I've been meticulously planning for months now. And now that it's finally somewhat acceptable to mention the word Christmas without people looking at you in a funny way, it's time to get the series up and running. This is the first of five Christmas gifting blog posts that I have planned, which will be appearing here every Sunday in the run up to the big day itself.

I've tried my very best to feature a real assortment of products and gift ideas in each of the five blog posts, to cover a variety of budgets and individuals. Not only do I find these kinds of posts helpful in coming up with ideas for what to buy loved ones for Christmas but it also, more often than not, gives me more inspiration as to products that I just have to add to my own Christmas list. 

So let's get started with the Christmas Gift Guide: For Her. This should hopefully give you some inspiration when it comes the women in your life, from your mum, to your best friend, to you your grandmother and more. And I also hope that it gives the men in our life some ideas as to what some of us would quite like to find under the Christmas tree this year. 

Christmas Gift Guide For Her Nail Polish

Fuse Gelnamel Vamp Starter Kit* £35 - Fuse Gelnamel Elec-tric or Treat* £15 - Fuse Gelnamel Sonic Blue-m* £15 - Fuse Gelnamel Intens-so-fly* £15 - Stylfile VIP Nail Files* 
£4.99 - Leighton Denny High Performance Nail Colour in Inkjet £11
I bet that it comes as no surprise that I'm featuring a whole host of nail goodies. For anyone who enjoys painting their nails, these gifts would make welcome additions to a fellow nail polish-a-holic's stash of nail products.
If you are buying for someone who adores gel nail polish then the Fuse Gelnamel kit allows them to achieve the same salon quality look at home. And you can also take advantage of the Boots 3 for 2 deal to add some exciting new Fuse shades to their gel polish repertoire. If you know that they prefer traditional nail polish techniques then Leighton Denny is where it's at. I always find myself picking up a few of the winter shades every year and the quality is pretty spectacular too. And of course, any nail polish lover will be excited to unwrap the brand new VIP Stylfiles. One is emblazoned with crystals and the other is accented in faux fur.

Emjoi MICRO Pedi 11 Piece Gift Set Christmas Gift Guide For Her

Emjoi MICRO Pedi 11 Piece Gift Set* Was £49.99 Now £29.99

And to keep your nails in tip top condition for all of those lovely festive nail polishes, there is the Emjoi Micro Pedi 11 Piece Gift Set. The value for money with this gift set is pretty unreal, especially when you take into consideration that the Micro Pedi itself can be around the £20 mark. For only £9.99 more, if you happen to take advantage of the incredible deal currently on at Argos, you get ten additional extras. This would make the perfect gift for any beauty lover who likes to take care of their nails.

Christmas Gift Guide For Her Perfume Fragrance YSL DKNY Michael Kors Library of Fragrance

YSL Black Opium Gift Set* £39.99 - Library Of Fragrance Gingerbread EDT* £15 - DKNY Women Sparkling Limited Edition EDT* Was £50 Now £19.99 - Michael Kors Glam Jasmine* £33.15
For me, perfume is a real fail safe gift idea, so let's start with YSL's Black Opium, which comes in one of the best gift sets of the festive season (just look at that handbag-friendly travel spray). Despite the dark packaging this is one of the sweetest yet sophisticated scents that I've ever had the pleasure of smelling. You really need to get yourself down to your local perfume counter to give this a sniff over the festive period (as well as the rest of the fragrances that I've featured). Then there's the limited edition DKNY Sparkling scent. This really would work for a whole variety of women, of all ages, which is what I love about it. Then the Library of Fragrance's Gingerbread scent is quite honestly the most perfect Christmas fragrance that you could imagine. If you know someone with a penchant for that particular scent or someone who has been excited for Christmas since January (hehe) then this would make a fantastic gift for them. And to finish on an almighty high, there's my favourite scent of the whole year; Michael Kors' GLAM Jasmine. This is just indescribably beautiful. You can also find it in a fantastic gift set this year.

Christmas Gift Guide For Her Yankee Candles

Yankee Candle Christmas Cookie Large Jar Candle £19.99 - Yankee Candle Candy Cane Lane Small Jar Candle* £7.99 - Yankee Candle Angel's Wings* £7.99

Last Christmas I received my very first Yankee Candle, a medium jar of Christmas Eve from my grandparents and I now fully blame them for my full blown Yankee Candle addiction. Hehe. Having finished that jar I can wholeheartedly recommend the Christmas Eve scent, in addition to the three new festive scents that have made their way home with me over the past couple of weeks.
Clinton Cards, where I bought my large Christmas Cookie jar from, currently have 25% off of all Christmas Cookie sizes as that is their Yankee Candle scent of the month. So if you, or someone you'll be buying for this Christmas, are a big fan of that fragrance in particular, then get yourself down to Clintons asap! They are also doing 'Buy One Get One Half Price' across the entire Yankee Candle range, which is where I would definitely recommend picking up some of the brand new Christmas scents. Candy Cane Lane, which smells just like peppermint candy cane, is part of the Christmas Past Collection, whereas Angel's Wings, a fresh and vanilla based scent, is part of the Christmas Present Collection. Who wouldn't love a Yankee Candle this Christmas?

Elle McPherson 3 in 1 Luxury Action Foot Spa Christmas Gift Guide For Her

Elle McPherson 3 in 1 Luxury Action Foot Spa* £33.49

Now I am aware that this product is a little pricier, especially if you're a fan of buying lots of little presents for family and friends but if you're the kind of Christmas shopper who likes to pick a slightly larger, more impressive present then this might be ideal for you and your loved one.
Who doesn't love a bit of pampering? And after spending hours, if not days, dashing around the shops, your feet can certainly do with a bit of TLC. It also works particularly well for those with poor circulation as well. Complete with two interchangeable pumice stones and fantastic massage rollers, this really would make such a great gift for mum's, grandmother's, aunt's, cousin's, sister's, wives... the list really does go on.

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? If so, what have you bought so far and for who? Did this post provide you with some shopping inspiration? 
Have you done a Christmas gift guide this year? Please leave me a link to yours if you have one or are planning one.

  4. This has helped me so much since I've really been struggling a bit buying for some females! I'm the opposite with perfume though I always find it to be one of the worst gifts to buy unless you 100% know they like it because of how fussy some people can be nowadays!
