There's only two weeks to go so let's get started- our top five Christmas presents for a special lady.

1. Something small and pretty...

We love gently untying a ribbon bow, or searching through some raffia to find a hidden box to uncover something small and unique and completely useless- except it's beautiful.  Earrings. A bracelet. A brooch. A hairclip. Try Michael Michaud or Ayala Bar for a statement, or Maria Allen for something quirky.

2. We like things to smell nice. Ourselves, our house, you...

Does she love to light candles? Try St. Eval for ethical, handmade and beautiful scents or True Grace for flair. Does she love toiletries? L'Occitane and Neals Yard always go down well- and they're beautifully presented. Or choose something a little more individual like The Natural Spa Factory and encourage her to pamper herself.

 

3. Romance isn't dead...

Remember your first date? Your first holiday? A place or object from her childhood? How wonderful would it be to recreate those memories…now, we're not saying that this is better than a weekend away to revisit them, but what about a limited edition print to remind you of somewhere special? They're more reasonable than you think and the meaning behind it is totally individual, short of a walk on the beach itself you won't get much more romantic...

4. It's the little things...

It's not really the price tag that's important (although thats what the adverts will have you believe), it's the thought. Has she always wanted to write? To paint? To have more time for herself? Think about the things she doesn't get to do, and encourage her. This might mean booking an evening class or a weekend away, but it could just be a beautiful notebook, thick, un-bleached paper, some graphite pencils and an invitation to take some time for herself.

 

If you have an idea, but you're not quite sure how to go about it, ask us. We can put together and gift wrap a package with your help for absolutely free- helping is what we do best :)

5. We drop hints all year long...

That book she keeps talking about? The new moisturiser her friend says is amazing? That place she keeps going on about visiting one day? Yes. They're all notes to you. Consider yourself told.

And one more thing…

6. She loves you, don't worry so much. If you've taken the time to pick something out, we're sure she'll adore it.

 

Love, The Gallery.
