If you’re a woman, coming up with Christmas gift ideas for women isn’t that hard. I usually just scope around for stuff *I* would quite like, then see which of my friends and family would also love it. At least, that’s how I’ve always seen Chrissy gift planning – that might not be you. In which case, you’ve come to the right place!
I’ve collated a bunch of the best Christmas presents to get your sister, mum, girlfriend or bestie (partly in the hope that my sister, mum, and other loved ones will see this list and sort me out). I’ve also put together this gift ideas for women for all the boyfriends who are right now struggling to think of something good. I see you.
Will this gift ideas work for every woman you know? Probably not. But whether she’s into fitness, skincare, fashion, books, homewares or just likes being pampered, there should be something in here for everyone.
The best Xmas gift ideas for women in 2020:
These hand-illustrated zodiac prints
These stunning prints were hand-drawn by illustrator Brigitte May, working with jewellery line By Charlotte. Obvs you need to pick the zodiac sign for gift recipient, but bonus points if you sort out the frame, too.
This organic glow oil
We all want a glow over summer, and this beauty oil promises exactly that with its lightweight combo of coffee oil, Omega 3, essential fatty acids and more. It’ll look just as good in the bathroom as it does on your skin.
This Auguste the Label dress
August the Label creates dreamy dresses season after season, and this dusty pink (100% rayon) midi piece is no exception.
This cleansing egg
The skincare geniuses at Peppy Co (behind those light masks you see all over Instagram) have a cleansing egg, which deeply cleanses without causing irritation. ‘Cause it vibrates, it’s like a mini massage for your face.
These By Charlotte gold earrings
The best thing about delicate gold earrings is you’re layering, so even if your boo already has a pair, then a second can still go down an absolute treat.
Trent Dalton’s new book
Did ‘she’ (whoever ‘she’ is) read and adore Trent Dalton‘s award-winning novel, Boy Swallows Universe? Probably, because everyone else in Australia did! All Our Shimmering Skies is his new one, set in Darwin, 1942.
This bottle of Bollinger Rosé
Tell me: is there a more perfect time than Christmas morning to crack open a bottle of the fancy (rosé) stuff? No, there is not.
This wide-brimmed Piper hat
Sun safety is bloody serious stuff, but can also be über stylish. My favourite type of Christmas? No hat, no presents.
The Ultra Violette sunscreen
Speaking of sun safety – you’ve probably seen the Ultra Violette Queen Screen sunscreen all over beauty Instagram. That’s because it’s 50 SPF (nothing works for skin better than sun protection), feels like a serum, is non-oily, and is packed full of antioxidants.
This top-voted perfume
The Rose Of No Man’s Land Eau de Parfum by Byredo was the winner in Mecca’s Beauty Election 2020 (where thousands of beauty fans cast their votes on their fave products), so really – you can’t go wrong here. It has notes of Pink pepper, Turkish rose petals, raspberry blossom, Turkish rose absolute, papyrus and white amber. Heaven.
These Alias Mae sandals
Comfy shoes are having a fashion moment. Blame it on quarantine. Stilettos? Never heard of her. Get in a for a pair of the Alias Mae Paris sandals before they sell out.
These mid Nelson Made heels
Speaking of comfy shoes – if you are going out, then mid and low heels are absolutely the go right now. So is ‘optimism dressing’, a.k.a. dressing in bold, bright colours to shake off the doom and gloom of 2020. You can get two birds with one stone with these pink and orange mules from Nelson Made.
This mix-and-match sheet set from Bed Threads
I may never shut up about how much I love my Bed Threads sheets (not sponsored!! just love them!!). This particular one combines the rust and terracotta linens, and makes me want to climb into bed and never leave.
This Booty Scrub
Scrub made just for thy tush? Say no more.
The Dyson Airwrap
The Holy Grail of hair styling tools, the Dyson Airwrap it how normies you know get influencer-level hair without forking out for a blow dry. Yes it’s a little bit pricey, but Dyson knows its way around an air tool.
These fluffy Ugg slippers
Can’t stress this enough: wearing fluffy slippers around the house is the ultimate in comfort. Yes, Christmas is in summer, but you know what comes after summer? The colder months. Be prepared with the fluff.
This TJ Swim one-shoulder bikini
TJ Swim (an Aussie label with a big focus on sustainability) has a lot of goods on offer, but I’m obsessed with this lilac colour and one-shoulder element.
This P.E Nation gym bag
Anyone who’s rediscovered their love of fitness post-lockdown (hello) would love a fancy new gym bag to get complete their matching activewear look.
These Nike vintage-look sneakers
The Nike Blazer Mid ’77 SE sneaks, from the brand’s new Icon Clash collection, is about harnessing “the old-school look of Nike b-ball” look but with a modern twist (and suede details).
This gold Spell necklace
Byron fave Spell launched these stunning ‘six degrees of separation’ necklaces earlier this year, a Tarot-inspired line of imagery to “explore and celebrate the degrees of separation between each and every one of us”. As with all of Spell’s jewellery, they’re handcrafted by WTFO guaranteed artisan groups in India.
This ‘blow your bits off’ vibrator
Gift her the gift she really wants this Christmas: an orgasm. Seriously though, the Womanizer clitoral stimulator is one of the highest reviewed sex toys for a reason – it works, and works very well.
These super-flattering sunnies
You know you’re a grown-up when you splurge on sunnies, and this Ahlem (an LA-based brand launched by Parisian-born designer Ahlem Manai-Platt) pair does the trick. Key point: effortlessly cool.
