Christmas gifts for all


The festive season is upon us, which means it’s time to get shopping for gifts! From family to friends, kids to colleagues, finding the perfect gift for everyone can become stressful.

Our advice? Sit back in the comfort of your home or office and hit the shops online. There’s still plenty of time to get most items delivered in time for Christmas.

Here’s our run down of ideas for her, for him, for children and for babies.

For her

There are usually plenty of ideas for gifts for the females in your life at Christmas time. Jewellery is always a winner, so head to Pandora, Oliver Bonas, and Swarovski for all things shiny and beautiful.

Another staple favourite is cosmetics and beauty. If you know which skincare brand is her favourite, you’ll usually be able to find gift sets or Christmas specials. Check out these sets by Clinique, Benefit and Clarins.

It’s the perfect time of year to cosy up and watch a Christmas film or two so slippers, PJ’s and loungewear are the ideal cosy-up present. For the best value, head to Boux Avenue, who have a large selection of cosies at a reasonable price, including pyjamas in a bag for £20. M&S is a perennial favourite, and with both everyday ranges and more luxury lines, such as cashmere loungewear and their ‘Rosie for Autograph’ range by Rosie Huntington, there’s something to suit every pocket. For the ultimate in luxury loungewear, British boutique Olivia Von Halle has silk pyjamas and nightwear in gorgeous designs.

For him

It’s starting to get much colder here in the UK and the online stores are packed with winter woollies. Head over to House of Fraser for a choice of cosy knits and designer jumpers, stay on trend at Topman or bag a designer bargain at TK Maxx!  

Tech is a good option for the men in your life – it seems boys never get too old for their toys! From remote control cars to Bluetooth speakers, motion robots to retro gaming consoles, MenKind has top toy tech for every budget.

For the kids

This time of year, you don’t have to look very far to find toys and games for kids of all ages. Take a look at our blogs on the top toys for Christmas, or head to the likes of The Entertainer, John Lewis, Hamleys or Smyths for further ideas.

For babies

A new baby at Christmas is the perfect excuse to shop for all things cute and cuddly. My 1st Years is a great place to look for personalised baby gifts, and The White Company has an adorable range of toys, clothes and more, all in their signature subtle, muted tones.
