Christmas is a wonderful time of the year. IF you get your girlfriend’s Christmas present right. If you fail in this endeavour, you can rest assured that you won’t be hearing the end of it until you get a chance to redeem yourself on Valentine’s Day.
Fortunately, however, buying gifts for our girlfriends isn’t as difficult as us men invariably make out and, with a bit of pre-planning (we’re talking weeks, not minutes) before December 25th, you can emerge on Boxing Day as a gift giving hero.
By and large, when it comes to buying a gift for your girlfriend this festive period, it will predominantly come down to how much you are prepared to spend on your better half. Well, fear not, we’ve got gifts to cover everyone from those who run a tight financial ship through to those men who will be pushing the boat out quite considerably this Yule Time.
Let’s get started – take a look at our gifts for girlfriends this Christmas below:
Molton Brown Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod Medio Candela – £36 from Niven & Joshua.
Candles are always, without fail, a good, dependable gift choice for a girlfriend. It portrays you as the sort of sensitive soul that she’s after and gives her an opportunity to revel in the delightful fragrances of this Molton Brown Candle – which include top notes of fiery pink pepper and tangerine. Middle notes of labdanum and black pepper and base notes of oakmoss and rich patchouli… what’s not to like? You get one of these for your girlfriend this Christmas and there’s no doubting she’ll either a] be impressed or b] assume you got your mum to buy her gift this year.
Orla Kiely Pure Evoke DAB Radio – £150 from John Lewis.
If you’ve got a girlfriend who keeps up with her designers and loves decorating and interior design and music, well, you’ve got a girlfriend with a lot of interests. You’ve also got a girlfriend who is going to love being on the receiving end of one of these Orla Kiely Pure Evoke DAB Radios this Christmas. Great audio performance and eye-catching visuals add up to a great gift.
Mulberry Continental Purse – £295 from Mulberry.
I don’t think there is a woman alive who hasn’t fallen under the spell of the Mulberry brand and a mere mention of their wares invariably results in shrieks of delight from the female of the species. Whilst their endlessly luxurious and beautifully crafted purses, such as the Mulberry Continental Purse above, are undeniably impressive, it takes a lot of persuading for a man to part with just shy of £300 for something that will spend most of its time out of sight in your girlfriend’s (probably) Mulberry bag.
Beau Seed Pearl and Enamel Stud Earrings with Yellow Gold – £1,100 from Winterson Pearls.
Jewellery is the gift that keeps on giving and when you supply a piece as impressive and unique as these mightily appealing Beau Seed Pearl and Enamel Stud Earrings by designer Alice Cicolini for Winterson, your girlfriend will be eternally grateful. They may be a little extravagant and more than you were intending to spend this Christmas but you pay for quality and that’s unquestionably what’s on offer here. Crafted from Akoya pearls sourced from the seas of Japan and set in Yellow Gold, these earrings will probably be your girlfriend’s most cherished possession for years to come and keep you in her good graces for almost as long.
Chanel J12 Automatic Watch – £4,000 from Chanel.
Chanel are a name that is always close to the forefront of most women’s minds and anything that they offer will appeal considerably. If, however, you truly want to make your mark this Christmas, you shouldn’t be looking any further than this exceptionally crafted J12 Automatic watch from the world renowned French fashion house. Positively steeped in luxury and wonderfully bold, any girlfriend would be extremely lucky to receive such an breathtaking gift this Christmas and if you’re going to make the effort, you might as well go the distance and opt for Chanel. It doesn’t get much better than that in a girl’s eyes.
