Luxury Gift Guide for Her

December has arrived and the holidays are fast approaching and I thought it was about time I started thinking about the Christmas shopping! Over the next week, I’m going to be bringing you a few different gift guides – for the special ladies or men in your lives, for your best mate or sister, for the kids, and some stocking filler or budget gift ideas as let’s face it, it can all get a bit expensive and a bit out of hand.

If you have a large family or many to buy for, a budget is super important. And we all know that spending time with loved ones is the most important part of the holidays. But for this particular post, I’m throwing caution to the wind and bringing you a few ideas if you really want to spoil a special female in your life and give them an extra special gift!

Cluse La Roche Rose Gold and Marble/Grey Watch.

Luxury gift guide women

These have probably been all over your Instagram feed lately as much as they have mine! Cluse are a Dutch brand who focus on quality watches in understated styles. This rose gold, marble and grey one is particularly stunning and would make a lot of ladies very happy (including me!). The neutral colours would coordinate with any outfit and would match with either silver, gold or rose gold jewellery. Available from for €159.

GHD Platinum Copper Luxe Gift Set

Luxury gift guide women

Ah the ever popular GHD! What did we ever do before them? In keeping with the trend for everything rose gold and copper, GHD have brought out this limited edition gift set which contains the Copper Luxe GHD styler, a heat resistant bag to store them in, and two limited edition Nails Inc metallic nail polishes. What's not to love?  Available in selected salons and here for €225.

J by Jasper Conran Camel Oversized Cashmere Scarf.

Luxury gift guide women

I was lucky enough to be gifted my first ever cashmere scarf at an event recently and I can tell you now that there is nothing like the feel of cashmere. As a woman who normally throws on an ole Penneys scarf, this was an absolute treat. This oversized one from Debenhams is the ideal Christmas gift for Mums, Nanas, Sisters or BFFs. This neutral camel would pretty much go with any coat and the fact that it's oversized makes it super cosy for the winter. Available here for €130.00.

Zoeva Makeup Artist Zoe Bag - Rose Golden Volume 1.

Luxury gift guide women

I may be in makeup brush heaven with this beaut! Beauty addicts in your life will love this set from Zoeva which contains their popular Zoe makeup bag and 25 professional quality brushes. The bag itself has three separate zipped compartments with plenty of pockets to store makeup or sponges in and elasticated loops to keep the brushes in place. This set is in the beautiful brown with rose gold trim but they also do a full rose gold version as well as a black and silver version. (The black and silver set is also slightly cheaper). Available from for €245.

Just Sheepskin New Duchess Slippers.

Luxury gift guide women

I’m a Penneys slippers kind of girl too. For something that I only get a short wear time out of before they get grubby and need replacing, I’m often reluctant to part with the cash. However, if you are looking to treat someone, these slippers look so luxurious and super cosy. They are 100% genuine suede and sheepskin and would be worth paying for to get the extra comfort and warmth for weary feet. Available here and in House of Fraser stores for £55 in a range of ten different colours including this beautiful soft grey, a soft lilac, berry, navy, chestnut/camel and leopard print! They come in sizes Small, Medium and Large like most slippers do.

Jo Malone London House of Jo Malone Gift Set.
Luxury gift guide women

Another iconic, luxury brand which is all over our Instagram feeds these days and rightly so. This is a collection of some of their best selling items housed in their iconic cream and black box with an illustration of a Georgian townhouse on the front. The gift box contains the following:

Red Roses bath oil.
Lime, Basil & Mandarin Cologne.
Peony & Blush Suede body cream.
Grapefruit hand and body wash.
Pomegranate Noir travel candle.
English Pear & Freesia body and hand lotion. 

It would make a simply stunning gift and especially since it’s a brand that most of us “normal” people wouldn’t be buying on a regular basis. (I buy my candles from Aldi not BTs!)
Available in Brown Thomas department stores and  here   for €170.

Marc Jacobs Gotham City Leather Key Pouch.

Luxury gift guide women

If you are looking to buy someone special a designer accessory without spending the price of a small house on a handbag, then key pouches or card holders are a great place to start a designer collection.
These pouches are meant for storing your keys and attaching to the inside of your handbag so that they don't end up getting lost in the bottomless pit that is a woman's bag! I have a similar pouch myself (alas though not Marc Jacobs) and I actually use it to store coins so it can be used for this too. This one is made from pebbled leather and features the gold Marc Jacobs lettering as well as gold hardware. Available from Brown Thomas and here for €120.

Yawn Nightime Pyjama Set in Navy.

Luxury gift guide women
We all secretly love getting new pyjamas for Christmas, and if you are looking for something a bit higher end than your standard fleecy ones covered in unicorns or teddy bears, then these starry night sky printed ones from Arnotts are perfect. Made from a lightweight cotton sateen fabric they are the ultimate in bedtime comfort. Available from Arnotts department store and here for €119.00.

I hope I've given you some ideas here and not made you want to add too much to your own wish list! Stay tuned for more gift guides coming up over the next week - most of which will be a lot more budget-friendly. What's on your own ultimate Christmas wish list?

Bye for now,
