Looking for the ideal Christmas gifts for her? We’ve got you covered. It’s officially December, which means it’s time to start getting your Christmas presents bought, wrapped and delivered (or popped under the tree).
Here at Marie Claire UK, we love Christmas gifting - because there’s nothing better than picking the perfect present and watching your loved one’s face light up as they open it. Team MCUK have rounded up the best gifts for him, best gifts for kids, best personalised gifts, best ethical gifts, and best beauty gift sets - so no matter who you’re buying for, we have some great inspiration for you.
But I'm here to bring you the best Christmas gifts for her, having scoured the internet to find the best beauty, fashion and home picks available right now. Whether you’re shopping for your mum, partner, sister, best friend or that friendly neighbour you love to catch up with over the Thursday morning bin collection, you’re sure to find something in this carefully curated edit.
As a shopping editor, I know that budget is important - because you’re not likely to spend the same amount of money on your sister as you are on a Secret Santa gift. So these gifting picks have been split into price categories, ranging from affordable (yet still chic) buys to luxury pieces she'll treasure for years to come. Keep scrolling to shop them for yourself.
Christmas gifts for her under £50
Yankee Candle makes some of the most seasonal scents around, and this set of tea lights is basically a failsafe gift. It features suitably seasonal scents like silver sage & pine, soft wool & amber and even Christmas cookie. Delicious.
Fairisle jumpers are having a bit of a moment - and no wonder, since they strike the perfect balance between timeless and subtly festive. This taupe knit from John Lewis looks far more expensive than it actually is. Size up for an on-trend oversized fit.
Nothing says 'luxury Christmas gift' like a treat from Chanel. This red shade - 151 Pirate, in case you were wondering - is the ultimate festive red. If your giftee is a fan of tradition (and chic manicures), this is the perfect present for her.
Not only are these button-down pyjamas sustainably made, but your giftee can pop them straight on come Christmas morning. PJs are a classic Christmas gift for precisely this reason, after all.
I own this hand wash myself and love the light, floral fragrance. It's the kind of gift that feels like you're put a fair bit of effort in but can be given to just about anyone (hello, Secret Santa present).
Speaking of ideal Secret Santa gifts, this box of macarons from French pâtissier Ladurée looks luxurious but won't set you back a fortune.
It's a fact of life - everybody loves a personalised gift. Enter: this beautifully festive velvet pouch that features any initial you choose. She can use it to store her makeup, pop it in her tote bag, or as a toiletries bag when travelling.
Gisou makes products that perform just as beautifully as they look on your dressing table, so you basically can't go wrong with gifting your loved one this bestselling honey infused hair oil.
While we're on the subject of statement accessories, I adore this checked scarf from Radley. It'll keep her feeling both cosy and chic.
I can't imagine anybody not being totally thrilled to receive this festive box of Tony's Chocolonely chocolate bars.
Stanley has just come out with some beautiful new shades for the festive season, including this rose quarts colourway. If she's had her eye on a Stanley cup for a while, now's your chance to get some extra brownie points.
Give her the gift of a soothing night in with the Unplugged candle from Lab Tonica. It releases heady notes of lavender, Frankincense and smoky vetiver to help her drift off with ease.
Designed in the softness of alpaca fibres, these bed socks will keep your feet warm all night.
Add essential oils to this colour changing light to help bring some relief from dry air sometimes associated with dry skin, colds, asthma and allergies. Plus, 100% proceeds from this sale go to helping the work of the Parkinson's UK charity.
Acclaimed Lebanese restaurant is offering a taster of Beirut flavours with this beautiful hamper, which includes Sumac, Zaatar spice mix, a bottle of Zet Zeytoun Lebanese Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a bottle of Chtoura Pomegranate Molasses, a jar of Mrabba fig jam with roasted sesame seeds, a jar of pickled wild cucumbers, pistachio Backlawa and a ecipe card from Chef Jad Youssef.
And this fluffy dressing gown completes the perfect night in. It makes the ideal gift for anyone, from your best friend to your gran. I own it myself and take it from me - it's unbelievably soft.
If she's a fan of bright colours, this fair isle jumper from Omnes is perfect. It's merry and bright without being too in your face.

Chloé's new Lumineuse fragrance is perfect for anybody who loves elegant yet feminine scents, featuring notes of vanilla, jasmine sambac and a vibrant rose accord. Lisa Oxenham, MCUK's Beauty and Style Director says: "This is an absolutely radiant fragrance that perfectly captures the essence of the free-spirited Chloe woman".
They can make barista-grade hot chocolate from the comfort of their own home with The Velvetiser by Hotel Chocolat. Just choose your flavour of chocolate flakes, add to your choice of dairy, plant milk or water and let the machine do the rest. We love it for frothing milk for our coffee and making matcha lattes too!
