Let’s face it; the idea of Christmas shopping for females scares you! We get it, as well it should – it’s something we as male species have been trying to master for centuries.
We also know you’ll read this post and no matter what happens you will STILL leave it to the last minute to buy something for that special lady in your life.
Whether it’s the girlfriend, wife, sister, mother or even that girl that you work with that you really fancy, as a man you will naturally leave Christmas shopping to the last minute and be stuck of what to get her this Christmas.
Well fellas, have no fear as we have put together a nifty little gift guide of items to purchase for that special female which will leave you in the good books earning you some ‘going out with the boys’ tokens.
We’ve scoured the Internet and asked ‘what do women want this Christmas?’
Say goodbye to those Christmas Eve sprints around department stores picking up random gifts like a food blender because here are a few recommendations from us:
Shoes – Cinders Wish
Why not treat the lady to something that truly is 1 of a kind. Cinders Wish is a new company that has been going from strength to strength over the past few months customising converse, Nike trainers, phone cases and pretty much anything you want.
They are based in the UK and we are told from the founders that no 2 pairs are the same and they are meticulous to ensure every pair reaches the highest possible standard.
You can have her name on the side, studs, spikes, crystals – they even sell One Direction Customised Converses if that’s your bag.
Check them out via Facebook but they have recommended their latest design of Sparking Nike Blazers priced at £116 plus P&P for the more urban lady…
Or if its bling you are after, then why not check out their Cluster Crystal Converse trainers priced at £102 plus P&P
They also tell us that they now offer gift wrapping with a tag written with a message of your choice for free which saves you even more time – what more can a man ask for?
Check out some of their products here, or email them on email@example.com
We would recommend you order pretty sharpish as there is usually a few week turnaround time.
On a night out there is never enough room in your pockets to carry your cigars, lighter, cutter and other gentleman paraphernalia, so why not give the lady a nice bag this Christmas which automatically allows you to drop the line “darling can you put this in your bag” leaving your pockets empty, and free as a bird.
We caught up with the gang at Mishique.co.uk and they informed us they are offering free delivery on all orders over £40 (#Result)
They recommended the Red Tote Handbag which is only £29.99 and with enough room to carry all her items and extra room for your cigars, you are surely onto a winner.
Mishique.co.uk also tells us “We also have many beautiful clutches that are ideal for a lady that likes a bit of ‘Bling Bling’ and maybe wants to flaunt it at their upcoming festive party”
The Gold Sparkly Evening Clutch Bag is available for £29.99 and in an array of different colours
Clothes – Misseee.com
Buying clothes for a lady is never going to be easy. All those choices, all those ranges, it’s almost impossible to work out what she will like, what she will wear? What colour?
We’ll we caught up with the owner of Miseee.com, a ladies online retail store to find out what guys should be buying for their ladies this season, here are 3 sure fire items to get you sorted this season:
“Surprise her with an elegant unique floral knitted dress perfect for those winter dinner dates“
The Blue & Black Knitted 3/4 Sleeve Print Dress is priced at £29.99
Why not buy a silver statement necklace for the chic unique lady in your life (a favourite by celebs – seen worn on Chloe Sims from The Only Way is Essex”
The Silver Jewel Chunky Necklace is priced at £14.99 and by saying you have seen it on a celebrity will no doubt earn you some browning points that you are paying attention to fashion.
And finally they recommend picking up a black bow Mesh Panel Tunic for the classy lady in your life (their words, not ours)
Available in 5 Colours at £25.99
Fragrances and Gift Sets
Picking a perfume can be very tricky due to the fact that a fragrance is very subjective. If you are going to pick up some perfume, try to think about what fragrances she likes. Don’t go for the most expensive or best value.
Although it’s cheap a bottle of Charlie red will only lead to a single Christmas so pay attention to her. Perhaps write down the last few fragrances she likes, do some research – are they floral? Are they sweet?
If you’re looking for some inspiration we would recommend BOSS JOUR Pour Femme (RRP 50ml £49.00)
Its a sophisticated new fragrance for women from BOSS Parfums. Inspired by the first light of day, BOSS Jour is using this unique moment to inspire women to seize all of their opportunities and create their very own stories, every day. With an elegant composition, the scent has been created to reflect three important female facets – light, inspiration, and elegant composure, – brought together in a beautiful blend of white florals with vibrant citrus. (We spend a lot of time with the Hugo Boss team to understand the above, trust us when we say its good!)
The beautiful Christmas Gift Set is available with a choice of BOSS Jour Shower Gel or BOSS Jour Body Lotion.
Other Perfumes we loving at the moment:
Jean Paul Gaultier – Classique
Kim Kardashian (yes we know the name makes you cringe but the perfume isn’t actually that bad)
If all else fails just buy her favourite perfume that she already has (if it’s her favourite there’s no problem stocking up!)
If your lady likes her hair and spends hours preparing while you complain but secretly play Call of Duty, then give her a reason to stay in front of the mirror longer with the Babyliss Curl. – RRP £150
The device is used to curl your hair almost instantly. If you are a fan of The Saturdays (you know you are) you’ll see one of the girls using it in the latest video for ‘Disco Love’
Back over to Miseee.com and they have recommended some great stocking fillers that will leave a #WOW on her face this Christmas. To add an extra impression this Christmas, when you give her the gift, take MIseee.coms words and make them your own, thus making you sound like a fashion extraordinaire.
Studs are back in and cannot go wrong with a beautiful studded black clutch bag, back in stock due to high demand so you cannot go wrong – “Black Stud Clutch” – £21.99
Dazzle her by adding to her Santa’s stocking with our beautiful elegant diamonte studs – “Gold Colour Crystal Round Stud Earrings” – £4.99
So there you have it, our guide to getting some great and affordable Christmas presents which will leave you in the lady’s good books this Christmas, meaning you can take some time to sip a great cocktail while puffing on a glorious cigar.
Or you could ignore all of the above and buy an engagement ring!
