Gifts by Personality : For Her

The Advent countdown is on and you still have no idea what to get her for Christmas? First things first – she’s probably left you some hints! Check folded down pages in magazines lying around the living room, your favourites bar and probably your desktop too, those are the classic “hiding places". If you’re still left clueless, check out our gift guide and work out which personality best describes her – that way you’ll be sure to get her something she loves this year.

Commonly seen clutching a fake tan mitt, waiting for her rollers to set and discussing the merits of HD brows – The Beauty Queen is no stranger to a bit of pampering and getting glammed up, the night out is the destination, but it’s the prep time that she really looks forward to. Allow her to get ready in style with a fluffy pink robe from Lipsy and some super cute sequin slippers from Miso. To complete her flawless look the perfect stocking fillers have to be some glittery Little Mix nails and some new Cheryl false eyelashes.

This one is easy to buy for – she’s probably already uploaded her ‘Must Have Christmas Wishlist <3’ to her fashion blog. The fashionista is the ultimate mix of personal style and bang on trend – treat her to some stylish accessories and coveted key pieces this festive season. The perfect shearling biker jacket with buckle detail and aviator charm has been on her radar for a while, surprise her with this light grey version from Glamorous and pair it with this chunky roll neck knit from Firetrap (which has been spotted on some serious style insiders!) . A Fashionista needs some arm candy and it doesn’t come more style conscious than a rose gold watch – this Firetrap Blackseal Roly watch is the perfect solution – also, a girl can never have too many handbags, the classic quilted Liberty bag in blue from Marc B will earn you serious brownie points.

She lifts more than her boyfriend and she’s always training for a 5K; this gym bunny doesn’t over indulge on Christmas pudding because she’s too busy prepping for bikini season. Once she’s done her morning workout on the 25th she’ll be expecting to find some essential fitness goodies under the tree, make sure you don’t disappoint by treating her to some new gym gear from the new Only Play range, including the Bianca Sweatshirt and the Tiger Vest Top. These animal print Fabric Pop Runner trainers and a Converse Legacy Duffle Bag make for excellent add-on gifts.

Most overused phrase is “I haven’t been to sleep yet!" and her drinking game repertoire puts the best of them to shame, the Night Owl is the girl everyone wants to invite to their party. Christmas is great and everything, but she’s busy recovering from the Christmas Eve blowout and planning where she’ll spend New Years Eve; get her exactly what she wants this festive season and sort her out with a new party look for the big night. It’s the year of gold sequins and this AX Paris Sequin Top dress is on every party girl’s wishlist – surprise her with a new dress AND a pair of Firetrap Peep Toe boots to match. What party style is complete without some dramatic make up? Add in a pair of Eylure Exaggerate Lashes and a Heart Red nail polish from the Models Own Diamond Luxe range as stocking fillers.

Being a student is an expensive business – so what this lady really needs from you is either a generous gift card or just a card with some cash! However, it’s nice to include a few extras as well to give her some things to unwrap. We suggest filling a stocking with cute accessories that she’ll love, try including a cosy beanie hat like the Firetrap Blackseal Cable Bobble Hat and a sparkly new phone case. Students are the masters of casual style and you need to keep it simple if your ever going to make it to that 9am lecture after a night of binge watching Netflix! A new pair of Converse will always go down well – try a new take on a classic with the Converse OX Winter Knitted Low Tops; don’t forget a new travel mug from Lipsy for some essential caffeine boosts!
