Christmas shopping can be overwhelming, no doubt. Some of us do our best work under pressure at the last minute, and some of us like to be extremely organised and get all our gifts before the end of November. So, to help make the whole endeavour easier for you—whichever camp you fall into—we've donned our (chic) elf outfits and assembled the very best Christmas gifts for her, all in one place. Rest assured this is the best of the best filtered down to the pieces we would genuinely approve of receiving ourselves, neatly categorised by budget.
For all the wonderful women in your life—who can often be tricky to shop for—we've found a treasure trove of gifts here, each one guaranteed to spark a squeal of sheer delight (rather than a disappointed sigh) when the wrapping gets torn off. From little luxuries and indulgent beauty bits, to a helping of trinkets for the home and the most popular designer bags for stylishly spoiling them (and rightly so).
In our expert opinion, a gift is best when it's something special you wouldn't normally buy for yourself. You know, those "nice things" that really make us feel good. And our editor-curated list ensures that, regardless of your means, the recipient is going to be overjoyed when they open your perfectly chosen gift. Of course, should you find something to add to your own list or treat yourself to in the process, that's all the better.
