Hey everyone, Happy Friday! Now that it is officially December and Christmas is just around the corner, I have decided to post a gift guide each Friday as part of my weekly Flame Favourites features. It can be quite a stressful time trying to figure out what to get your family and friends or simply trying to decide what you would like yourself, so I am hoping these might help you make some of those decisions. This week I am talking all about gifts for HER, so whether you’re buying for your Mom, Sister, Girlfriend or just simply a Friend, here are a few ideas…
I know it can be a risky one but I personally love receiving clothes/shoes as a present. I think a lot of people tend not to buy quite enough for themselves coming up to the Christmas period because they are so busy buying for others. So getting a present of say a dress or a pair of heels can sometimes come in very handy with all the nights out & events during the holidays. Here are some pieces that I would love to receive, especially those public desire gold heels!
I think anything makeup related is usually quite a safe present for most girls these days. Again, with makeup we tend to only buy what we need throughout the year but may not indulge in a certain palette or highlighter that we would love, so getting it for Christmas is the perfect treat. Here are some bits on Kaelin’s wishlist – the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette is supposed to be especially beautiful!
You know here at Retro Flame we love a good investment piece so therefore I always think something a little more valuable is the perfect gift to give to someone at Christmas. It saves you looking for lots of little things and it is usually something they will always remember and have forever. This YSL bag (if the person you’re buying for has been VERY good this year) or this Cluse watch are two of my favourite options.
Another item that you might put off purchasing for yourself could be something technology-related so Christmas is the best time to add it to your list and hint it to your significant other or family member. I love these headphones from Anthropologie and this handy little Kate Spade portable charger too!
And last but not least the reliable cosy gifts that we all get every year – who doesn’t love another new pair of slippers for Christmas, haha! You simply can’t go wrong with any of these options. I especially love that Pyjamas set from River Island.
I really hope this gave you a few ideas. Happy Shopping & have a great weekend!
