Luxury Christmas Gift Guide For Her 2016

Well for obvious reasons this is always my favourite post to put together… With something for every price range, this is basically my ultimate wish list this Christmas!

Kindle Paperwhite, Amazon UK from £79.99

I’m a little late to the Kindle party, I just couldn’t get my head around never turning a page again, but the reality is – these are just soooo much easier to read from! And I realise now it is near on impossible trying to turn a page with a sleeping baby in your arms. This really has brought all the joy back to reading for me, I can easily take this with me when I am waiting for the girls to finish their after school clubs, read in the night without needing to turn the light on and I can make the font size bigger to avoid straining my eyes – it is just so convenient! The Kindle Paperwhite is the newest edition to the Kindle family and will inevitably be a popular choice this Christmas.

Arbonne Intelligence Genius Ultra Anti-Ageing Set, £235 

This is a pretty mega gift for the woman in your life… The Genius Ultra is a non-invasive hand held facelift device. It uses ultherapy technology to safely apply your skincare deeper into your skin for truly remarkable results. Only launched this year it has already won the 2016 Pure Beauty Awards for Best Electrical Beauty Device. I have been using this for about 8 weeks now, it is part of my bedtime skincare regime and the difference around my eyes is incredible. The set includes the RE9 Serum and Lifting and Contouring eye cream and until December 15th, Arbonne have a rather special Christmas offer on where you get the Nourishing Facial Oil (SRP £59) and a little ‘on the go’ bag for the device free with the set. That is £465 worth of goodies for £235. Remarkable!!! There is also a 45 day money back guarantee on this device so if you aren’t seeing the results you’d hoped for, Arbonne will give you a full refund – well as of yet, I am pretty sure there haven’t been any returns! Get in touch by email if you want more info 🙂

Willow of London Personalised Phone case, £39

This phone case is a popular choice with celebs, most recently I spotted Victoria Beckham with this style on instagram. Willow of London do a huge selection of personalised cases and leather goods, I think this makes a gorgeous stocking filler!

Burberry, Cashmere Scarf, £350

Now if money is no object (what I mean by that guys is that you can’t put a price on love) then head straight to Burberry for the classic cashmere scarf. For those extra brownie points you can get complimentary personalisation on the edge of the scarf! This is super soft and this heritage check will never go out of fashion.

Kikki K Mindfulness Journal, £21

If you have a friend in to her personal development you must check out the Kikki K stationary, they do the most fabulous collection of inspirational journals and diaries. Mindfulness is a focus of mine in 2017 and I would love this in my stocking this Christmas!

Jo Malone Lime, Basil and Mandarin Home Candle, £42

This is my favourite Jo Malone scent. It’s an extravagance not many of us would buy ourselves but there is nothing nicer than snuggling on the sofa and enjoying the gorgeous glow of a candle. All Jo Malone gifts are so beautifully packaged and this is the perfect gift for that £50 Secret Santa!
