So, here’s my Christmas Gift Guide For Her. I don’t know about you, but i always find women much easier to buy for than men. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because i’m a woman so have a better insight into want they want, but there just seems to be a greater variety of gift options available.
1 // ORAL-B GENIUS 9000 ROSE GOLD ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH £109.00 I’ll be honest, £109.00 is a lot to pay for an electric toothbrush, but the Limited Edition Oral B Genius 9000 in Rose Gold comes with a host of extras – including smartphone compatibility and extra brushing modes – which makes it well worth the price tag. And let’s be serious guys…there’s no limit when it comes to your ladies right? There’s six different brushing modes to choose from with the Genius 9000, such as ‘Daily Clean’, ‘Gum Care’ and ‘Sensitive’ for gentler cleaning. It also comes with four different brush heads, including Oral B’s well-known ‘CrossAction’ head and also the ‘FlossAction’ head, designed to remove plaque especially effectively from interdental areas. It vibrates when 30 seconds have passed to indicate that it’s time to move on to a new section of your mouth and then vibrates again for a longer period of time when you’ve brushed for the full recommended two minutes. The real ground breaker with this toothbrush though is its new Position Detection Technology which works with the Oral-B companion app to capture data about how well you are brushing your teeth and instruct you accordingly. The Genius brushes come with a clip that attaches to your mirror, so that you can easily monitor the app as you are brushing and check that you have cleaned all areas of the mouth. Genius right? I think this toothbrush, with its slimline design and durable travel case, is the perfect luxury gift for her this Christmas.
2 // BRAUN HD730 SATIN HAIR 7 LONTEC HAIRDRYER £29.99 If you are looking for 100% damage-free drying then the Satin Hair 7 IONTEC is the dryer for you. Its IONTEC technology not only protects the health of hair for touchable smoothness and shine, but also restores the moisture balance, tames frizz and fights static. It comes with a professional nozzle for precise styling and a diffuser for salon defined curls and volume. It has a really sleek design, even heat distribution, 6 temperature/airflow combinations and offers fast and efficient drying, so it’s perfect for mums!
3 //SAMSONITE NEFTI LAPTOP BACKPACK £75.00 This backpack is perfect for commuters and working mamas. It’s a great size, but not so big that you’ll lose the contents at the bottom and is of an excellent quality. Padded shoulder straps offer maximum comfort and the internal sleeves are ideal for keeping a laptop and other contents of the bag organised. It’s also got a front pouch with zip fastening that’s great for keeping items like a purse or phone secure but easily accessible.
4 //PHIL SMITH BE GORGEOUS HELLO MOISTURE GIFT SET £8.50 AND PHIL SMITH BE GORGEOUS SMOOTH IT OUT BRUSH £3.00 The Phil Smith Be Gorgeous Hello Moisture Gift Set – which comes with a nourishing repair shampoo, nourishing repair conditioner, intensive conditioning treatment and tie hairbands – is the perfect pick me up for tired tresses this Christmas. The products are designed to nourish and moisturise hair leaving it shinier, silkier, smoother and healthier. I’d recommend using the products in conjunction with the Phil Smith Be Gorgeous Smooth It Out Detangling Brush £3.00 which features firm, flexible bristles that glide through any hair type to softly comb out knots. Also, the neon zigzag bristles bounce back to their original form after each stroke reducing hair breakage.
5 //UMBRA HANGIT DESK PHOTO DISPLAY £15.00 This beautiful photo display would make a perfect gift “for her” this Christmas. The idea of using the mini wooden pegs and two hanging lines to show off favourite mementos like photos, postcards, tickets or even children’s drawings has a real Scandinavian hygge feel to it and is such a lovely, creative way to brighten up an otherwise dreary workspace.

8 //OH K! MINI MANI SET £12.00 Get your nails looking fresh and fabulous over the festive period with this mini manicure kit from Korean beauty brand Oh K!. I love the use of pastel colours and cute kawaii designs as I think this makes the kit instantly appealing to children/teens as well as adults. The kit contains nail scissors, a mini nail file, clear nail polish, a cuticle pusher and a nail buffer so you can trim, file, buff and polish your way to that professionally manicured look.
9 //GREEN PEOPLE FOREST AND FRUIT BODY COLLECTION £22.95 Modern Botanicals is the exquisite new Christmas gift range from Green People which draws inspiration from nature and uses plant imagery, metallic accents and organic ingredients to stimulate, nourish and balance both body and mind. The Forest & Fruit gift set includes an uplifting botanical shower gel and body lotion that has a mood-boosting citrus aroma and intensely hydrates the skin to leave it soft, smooth and supple.
