The best gifts for her: the most stylish Christmas ideas revealed
04 December 2019

Christmas is just around the corner – which also means naff gifts 'for her' are filling the shelves.

Hastily chucked into shopping baskets, these gifts are often completely inappropriate for the person you're buying for and end up sitting in a cupboard for twelves months, regifted or – worst – just chucked in the bin.

It can be easy to be bamboozled – especially when you're buying for someone special and just want to get it right. But if you really want to please your mum, girlfriend, sister or best friend, follow our lead.

We've selected the best, most stylish and least naff Christmas gifts for her – no matter what she's into.

5. For the one who loves luxury - Le Labo Hinoki Shower Gel

£20.00
Buy now from John Lewis

If you know someone who loves luxury, this Le Labo thick-lathering shower gel will do the job. Made with sesame oil, rosemary leaf and sunflower oil, it is designed to nourish and tone. Its scent is "inspired by the Buddhist temples of Mount Koya in Japan which all carry the mystical, profusely warm and mesmerising scent of the hinoki trees from the surrounding forest", which sounds pretty cool to us.

And it looks great, too – the bottle looks like it's been plucked from a high end hotel room.
