If she hasn’t been dropping any hints and you’re dreading hitting the high street without a plan of action, fear not – whether you’re on the hunt for a gift for your girlfriend, sister, friend or mother-in-law, we’ve devised the fail safe guide to shopping for her – and there isn’t a scented candle or posh bubble bath in sight. 

Whether you choose to opt for a cosy knit or luxurious pyjamas, she’ll be happy come Christmas day. Happy shopping! 

She’ll thank you for cosy cashmere

Great quality cashmere is worth an investment and will see her through many a chilly day. Unsure of her favourite colours? As tempting as it may be, avoid Christmas prints as the novelty will wear off quickly.
Instead, play it safe and opt for neutrals; grey marl, black, navy and camel colourways will ensure they have longevity and are ideal for work.
If you know she likes a fun knit, wears bright colours or loves a slogan t-shirt, pick a patterned style instead. M&S is great for soft, good quality cashmere, but if you have a larger budget, head to Chinti & Parker or Brora for interesting jumpers.

A great handbag will earn you brownie points 

It goes without saying that most women love a fabulous handbag. Christmas is a time for treats, so instead of going for a simple, work-friendly black tote of which she probably has 3 or 4 of, a stylish colour block number or a ladylike printed shoulder bag are an easy win.

Look for little details like a gold chain (she can wear it over party season), cross-body straps (great for weekends and nights out) and inside card pockets in smaller bags (so she can go purse-free). Looking for more affordable options? Head to Mango, & Other Stories and Zara. 

Snake effect bag, £35.99, Mango; Mansur Gavriel textured leather tote, £895, Net-a-Porter; Embossed leather shoulder bag, £1260, Gucci.

Chic jewellery will impress

If she has her ears pierced, invest in sparkly studs or small, neat hoops that she can wear everyday. Quirky pearl and diamond accents are ageless, but if she’s practical and tends to be a minimalist when it comes to decoration, a watch may be the best option. A metallic strap will make it feel special but most of Larsson & Jennings’ styles can be interchanged for leather options, too. 

Maria Tash 18ct gold earrings, £325, Net-a-Porter; Lugano gold-plated watch, £225, Larsson & Jennings; 18ct rose gold vermeil diamond bracelet, £195, Monica Vinader.

Luxurious pyjamas for lounging 

You can’t go wrong with a great pair of silky pyjamas, and they’ll be perfect for post-Christmas and pre-New Years lounging. Silken pyjamas are also increasingly popular as day wear so pick a classic striped pair or a simple print so she can make the most out of your gift. Rosie for Autograph at M&S has stylish, lace-trimmed sets, and Topshop have a great pair of navy striped pyjamas. 

Printed silk pyjama shirt, £145, Asceno and printed silk pyjama bottom, £135, Asceno; Odette satin pyjama set, £460, Equipment

Monogramming makes for a unique gift 

A personal touch shows you’ve put extra thought and time into her present, so why not make it that bit more unique and add her initials to it? The Asceno pyjamas, Chinti & Parker sweater and Monica Vinader gifts above can all be monogrammed with up to three initials. 

Baia handbags can not only be monogrammed, but they can be completely bespoke, so if she prefers a lighter interior (which makes it easier to find things in her bag) and prefers a silver chain over a gold one, you can create one especially for her. Chatelles are a French brand that specialise in chic slip-on shoes – our favourite are the navy suede pair with classic gold monogram.  Be warned though, only invest in monogramming when you know she’ll love it- once it’s ‘grammed with her initials, there’s no taking it back. 

Croc print diary, £95 with personalisation from £15, Aspinal of London;  Micro bag in mid leather, £150, Baia; Monogram cashmere wrap scarf, £216, Rae Feather;  Blue suede slippers, from £275, Chatelles
