Around this time a year, money must be spend. If it’s not on a fancy dinner, decoration or some nice outfit for yourself, it is spend on buying gifts for your loved ones. And let’s be frank, is there anything more challenging then thinking of a gift for the women in your life? Whether it’s your mother, girlfriend, wife or best friend, buying a gift for a lady is never easy. Maybe it’s because you don’t know what they like, or that they are never satisfied? You still can’t figure out what was so wrong about the socks, spatula or towels you bought her last year. Keeping in mind that this month is the most expensive one of the whole year, I put together a list of stylish, low budget, always-nice-to-get-gifts. Just for you, to make this already overbooked month a little easier on you. Merry Christmas!
Let’s first start off with something warm. This Christmas gift set from The East India Company is completely customizable to the tea desires of your loved one., or surprise her by customizing a surprise box, which won’t be hard with over 120 varieties to satisfy curious minds.
If you like it, you should put a ring on it, were famous words of legendary Beyoncé. We couldn’t agree more and what better way to decorate her finger than with a timeless minimal ring from &Another Stories. Afraid she won’t wear her present in winter? With these matching leather gloves from iNDiViDUALS by Ines, her fingers will be kept nice and warm in style and allow her to still rock that ring. But more about gloves in a bit.
As we are in the spirit of fashionable gifts, this book cound't be left out. Grace by Grace Coddington is a must read and have for every fashion minded woman! A memoir by the creative director of VOGUE, Grace Coddington, Order it on Amazon here. Accompanied with these amazing smelling WOO candles you might remember from my post here and with a cup of her favorite tea, she is ready for the cocooning season.
Back to gloves again. These leather patchwork gloves from LMBK Young are actually made for men but will work perfect for woman as well, keeping her hands stylish and warm. A great alternative would be these patchwork mittens from PIECES here.
With this red lipstick from Doutzen Kroes by L’Oreal, her lips are guaranteed to get the iconic power woman lips. Not only is super model Doutzen recently crowned woman of the year, we trust her on her lushes lips that this lipstick will look pretty on any woman.

Another soft present is this Repeat Cashmere shawl. Made from 100 Cashmere and died with organic dye, this shawl fits her delicate neck like a glove.
