Women's Christmas Gift Guide - 2018*

I absolutely love putting together Christmas gift guides each year. Now we're over half way through November I thought it was the right time to share some of the items I think are perfect for the festive season this year so today I'm starting with my Women's gift guide. Hopefully you'll find some inspiration for the special ladies in your life but make sure you come back tomorrow and Wednesday too for my Men's gift guide and my Food and Drink gift guide, I have so many things to share this year!

Missguided Babe Power Perfume* - I'm starting with perfume because you can't really go wrong with that can you? We are utterly spoilt for choice when it comes to fragrance but one brand I've personally been loving over the last few months is Missguided. You might not know but Missguided who are mainly known for fashion have actually ventured into the beauty world and they currently have 4 perfumes to choose from - Babe Power, Boss Babe, Babe Dreams and Babe OUD. These are available as single bottles and some you can even find as gift sets like the one below which come with a pretty keyring too for £28. Babe Power is one of my favourites as it has such a beautiful sweet scent that lingers all day. Key fragrance notes are grapefruit zest, sour cherry, crisp apple, candy floss and white vanilla. A reason I think Missguided perfumes are the one this Christmas is because of how different they are. How a perfume bottle looks is really important to me, I'm quite fussy but I love their unique design and I really think they stand out in a store.

Butter London Nail Polish* - If you know someone who is really into their nails then Butter London is the brand to try. With a plethora of nail brands to choose from now, it's important to go for one you know is high quality and I couldn't fault the polishes available from Butter London, how gorgeous is the shade below? I've been so impressed recently with not only how well these apply but also their longevity. The shade range is huge too so you're sure to find one suitable for whoever you're buying for and I just think the bottles look so luxurious. These are usually £15 but are currently on offer £12 in M&S!

The Body Shop Peppermint Gift Set - I adore The Body Shop and they get Christmas so right every single year! Each year they bring out new scents and gift sets and each year I want it all. This Christmas they've released a gorgeous peppermint scent aswell as Vanilla Marshmallow and Berry Bon Bon. I couldn't resist the peppermint as I'm a fan of anything minty! The gift set that has impressed me is the festive sack which is currently £18 and it contains a body butter, shower gel, hand cream and body scrub. It's the perfect little set for anyone you know who loves a pamper evening. There is also a smaller set available too for £9!

Books - I've been quite generic with this but a good book is always a winner for me. It can be tricky sometimes if you don't know exactly what genre someone likes but it's always worth a go, there is nothing like getting stuck into a book in the colder months whilst wrapped up in a blanket. I've read a few great ones this year so I do have a few I recommend. If you're looking for a thriller then The Sisters by Claire Douglas has been one of my books of the year. A brilliant twist at the end! If you want something a bit more romantic then I've really enjoyed Some Kind Of Wonderful by Giovanna Fletcher and also Five Years From Now by Paige Toon. All of these are really affordable and Amazon has had some brilliant books for just £2 so now's the time to get buying.

Vorrei Italian Hampers* - Whilst I have a food and drink guide going up in a few days, there was something I wanted to share today and that's the Italian hampers available from Vorrei. Vorrei are a family-run online Italian food retailer dedicated to beautiful hampers and food gifts ranging from fresh pasta to chocolate, organic prosecco and flavoured oils, they have everything you could possible need for an Italian feast. There are a range of Christmas hampers available this year so whether you're wanting something a bit more budget friendly or something extravagant, they have you covered. You can find classic items such as Panettone on their website too. For a relaxing evening in with some luxurious food and drink, Vorrei are definitely worth considering this year.

Kathleen Roll-On Oils* - The final item I wanted to share is the newly launched roll-on oils from Kathleen, a premium skincare brand with a love for all things natural and organic. I reviewed the scent Sensual Rose recently and I've not been able to stop using it! It smells utterly delightful with it's fruity scent and it soaks into pulse points incredibly quickly leaving you with the softest skin. There are two other scents to choose from too - Citrus Cheer and Tranquil Fields and of course they have an abundance of other gorgeous skincare products to help you indulge in a bit of self care.
