Christmas Gift Guide 2012: For Her

We’ve looked at suggestions for the menfolk and I showed you some of my favourite gifts for girls, but today let’s get to the good stuff – as in, the stuff I’d like myself! Here’s my cut out and keep – or bookmark and visit later – guide to buying for the women in your life – or, if you’re feeling cheeky, send the link on to a loved one as a fairly heavy hint!  



From top left:
ONE: New Irish brand Nima Brush have blown me away: they make  high quality, professional grade brushes that are brilliant to use, wear and wash well and are also affordable. If there’s a serious makeup lover on your list, put a big smile on her face with this 7 piece essential set, €65, which comes housed in a sturdy yellow case. Check out my review over on beaut.ie here, or visit their website for more.

TWO:  I haven’t worn a wristwatch since I was a child but with this unisex number I could definitely be tempted. The Adidas Sydney is a little bit retro, a little bit bling and a whole lot fabulous. Also comes in stainless steel, or stainless steel and gold – it’s £92 here.

THREE: Oasis have come up with a gorgeous and covetable range of accessories as stocking stuffers this year. The prettiest notebook I’ve seen in a long time, this sequinned lovely is just €10. WANT!

FOUR: I’m mad about this set of five mini versions of Clinique’s gorgeous Chubby Sticks – including my favourite, Chunky Cherry. Great value at €35, too – a full sized version is €19!
FIVE: Who doesn’t love a bath bomb? Pixy is Ireland’s natural skincare range –they’re similar to Lush – and these babies are hand-made using all sorts of lovely ingredients. The Jingle Bombs set is €9.99 for 4 – individually, they’re €2.99. Find them here.

SIX: Statement ear-rings are a total must for the party season. I might have missed out on the Lulu Frost beauties that caught my eye but these drop ear-rings from Warehouse would help ease the pain. They’re €11 here.
SEVEN: Also from Warehouse, this sequinned iPad case, €21, ensures even her gadgets will be getting their bling on for the party season!

EIGHT: I’m loving this studded belt – it would dress up any outfit in a jiffy and add a touch of rock chick glamour. It’s €20.84 from ASOS, here.

Feeling inspired by any of this little lot? How are you getting on with your shopping this year?
