Us women are the ones who do the majority of the shopping, the wrapping and then of course the cooking on the big day but unless we leave a list (do print this off and leave in a not so subtle place) for our men then do we really get what we want as gifts?
OK then if you do your lucky but I know many of you are agreeing with me here. So to help decide on those special gifts I’ve done some searching around for you, I’ve found some gifts which will WOW and there is something to suit all budgets too.
Here is our Top selection of Christmas Gifts for Her!!
Salon looking nails whenever you want them from the comfort of your own home. This small piece of kit does what it says on the box – One step to super shiny gel nails that last up to 14 days.
By following the very easy to follow instruction’s you pre-treat your nails first by cleaning them using the lint free cleansing cloth – this removes all dirt and prepares the nails for the varnish, then paint your nails using a thin layer of varnish – 1 thin coat is enough and place them under the UV light to set them for 2 and a half minutes, repeat the process on the other hand. It’s best to do 4 fingers on each hand first then finish with your thumbs to make sure fit under the lighting properly.
Once painted the polish holds for up to 14 days without chipping. This does really give a salon finish in the comfort of your own home. I’m not great at painting nails but even I was able to get a flawless even finish which didn’t chip off as my polish tends to do. Perfect for holidays as you won’t need to take your polish with you or your nail polish remover.
Extra polishes are available separately for £14.99
Available from Amazon
and Debenhams – currently on offer at Debenhams for £70.
Tipsy Elf Jumpsuit
Who says only the kids get to have new Pyjama’s or Christmas Jumpers this festive season?
These are more jumpsuits than Onesie, made purely to get you in the Christmas spirit. Perfect for pulling on early evening when the weather is freezing, snuggle down and start the Christmas wrapping perhaps.
They are very warm with comfy elasticated cuffs, this jumpsuit features a festive design and an extra long double zip, zip all the way up to the top of the hood where you can hide away from the kids perhaps or the wrapping /ironing piles.While you may not fancy venturing outside in this you will be very snuggly inside but should you need to head out you will be nice and toasty when heading out to the shops for milk or chasing the bin men down the road when you forget to put the bins out.
Priced at £60 however they are currently on offer for £34.94 available from www.tipsyelves.co.uk
They also have Children’s jumpers and a large range of adult jumpers including some different and far from traditional styles.
If you’re not brave enough for an epilator to use on your legs, under arm and bikini line, well I definitely don’t blame you there!
Having received one as a gift last year it hurt, after using twice it’s sat redundant in a drawer sadly.
The new HoMedics Duo is the latest in at home hair reduction, combining dual technologies for fast, safe and long lasting results for perfectly smooth skin. It combines the benefits of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and AFT Freeglide (Advanced Fluorescence Technology). This small and portal device can be used in the comfort of your own home all over the body including the face, legs and underarms.
This is a way of permanently removing the hair but using IPL technology to work on the hair root follicles. By sending the Intense Pulsed Light down to the root it begins to kill the root and eventually stop growth – Clinically proven to prevent hair regrowth, the device is easy to use and ergonomically designed with a large pulse activation button and indicator light to show when it’s ready to use.
I’m on my third treatment so far and it’s a very pain-free and easy process. Simply shave the area first so you can work closer to the skin and root follicles, the turn the machine on – select your skin type, read the instructions fully to work out which yours is the pressing the button run over the area.
To do my whole leg area takes around 15 minutes and I’m looking forward to seeing some results soon.Priced at £199.99 it may not be a cheap piece of kit however compared to how much this treatment would cost you in a salon and the fact it will eventually reduce/stop the hair growth it is a long term investment.

This is a 2in1 facial device. A facial cleansing brush with a combined facial epilator in one small device.
This kit also comes with a lighted mirror and a carrying pouch to keep all nicely combined.
Battery powered, this gives a very deep cleanse to your face. Add the brush attachment and the cleansing brush rotates quickly to help loosen make-up, oil and dirt. This gives a 6x better cleanse than doing it manually. This can be used in the shower.
To change to the epilator, just switch the head to the epilator attachment.
For use on the chin, upper lip, forehead and to maintain eyebrows – it has a two direction switch to allow epilation with ease on both sides of the face,
It has a slim head for precision, 10 micro-openings to capture the finest hairs. You can catch the finest hairs down to 0.02mm in width and only 0.5mm in height which means you don’t have to wait for visible regrowth to use again.

3D Fiber Lashes Mascara
Since becoming a Mum my beauty routine has dwindled but I do always wear foundation, lipstick and mascara when I go out.
Usually it’s a 3 minute rush job and it looks like it but I’m loving the effect you can get by using this 3D Fiber Mascara.
It works by wearing on top of your usual mascara, you then use one of the wands you get in this kit which is a sealer, put on in the same way as your usual mascara. Put on top of your usual mascara then use the second wind to draw fibres over your eyelashes which lengthens and plumps them at the same time. Finish with the sealer
This is the only Mascara which I’ve tried which actually gives the effect it claims to do – usually if it says lengthens and plumps I can’t see much difference however this one works and it is not only easy to do but it lasts too! And it is easy to get off again with warm water and cleanser, no scrubbing required.
This product give a very dramatic effect, maybe not one you will want everyday on the school run but it will effortlessly transform your look ready to head out for the night or when you want to impress or add a quick change of look.
Everyone needs a little pampering and you can’t really go wrong with bath bombs.
This cute set of 3 bath bombs come cleverly packaged in a Christmas cracker – you don’t even need to wrap, just place on the tree for a novel gift. Fruity and Berry flavours. A great way to relax after the Christmas madness.
Sexxy Shoo Pink Stiletto Perfume
A fruity scented perfume – combining 2 of my favourite things – Shoes and perfume.
A cute bottle which will look great on a dressing table.
Costing only £4.99 this would make a nice stocking filler or even secret Santa gift for a girlie girl, also available from Toxic Fox.
