3. PAUL SMITH PORTRAIT FOR WOMEN

Fragrance plays a large part in a woman's daily routine and picking the right one can be a little tricky sometimes. However, if you get it right, chances are, your receivers will love and enjoy the luxurious experience of wearing the scent for a really long time. 


If you're buying for someone relatively young and isn't sure what she uses or whether she wears any perfume at all, this new fragrance from Paul Smith is a good way to start. 

A fresh, green floral fragrance, Portrait for Women is crisp, light and feminine with a spicy, fruity edge, powdery heart and a sensual musky dry down.
I love the bottle for its elegant and timeless design, a girl with an insatiable hunger for travel and old world romance would appreciate this one.

6. MAJOLICA MAJORCA CHRISTMAS 'PURE PLAY' COLLECTION PRODUCTS




I think we should always buy into glitter during Christmas, it's the one time of the year where it's holy appropriate.

16. SLEEPPHONES



Lastly, I thought I'd throw in these mighty-cool, high-quality headphones to help your mom, your sister or a sleep-deprived friend get some quality rest!

I absolutely love the fact that I can now drown out my brother's wall-trembling snores and sleep comfortable on the side when I put on my favourite audiobook to sleep! Wee!
