What to Buy My Girlfriend: Christmas Gift Guide (Part One)

We've made it to December and I have to admit that I'm already getting pumped about Christmas! It's so close, only a couple of weeks away now. If you've still got any Christmas shopping to do then I've got a couple of posts to share with you featuring some gift ideas. Today's post is all about products for women - whether that be a girlfriend, girl-friend or your best gal pal. They come in at a range of prices so they'll almost certainly be one to fit your budget. 

One Little Vice: Christmas Gift Guide

Tales From the Earth "A Life Filled With Adventure" Message Bangle - RRP £45*
(available from their online store and online from Not on The High Street)
Jewellery is a great gift option at any time of year and these message bangles from Tales From the Earth are really quite lovely. I loved the message "a life filled with adventure" because it acts as a daily reminder to seize life by the coat tails and make the most of every day. There are a few messages to choose between, including "always with you", "an ocean of love", "an abundance of happiness" and "a lifetime of luck". If you know someone who'd appreciate jewellery with a meaning - and one that can be kept secret, just between the giver and receiver - then these message bangles would be a wonderful gift.

Balance Me Rose Otto Bath and Body Set - RRP £10* 
(available exclusively from Waitrose or online)
This is the most affordable option in today's gift guide but it doesn't represent a lack of quality! Balance Me is a well established and much loved beauty brand. I've been using the Rose Otto Body Wash for the last month and it's such a luxurious product to reach for daily. The scent is noticeable but still delicate and because of its high quality ingredients it doesn't irritate or dry out my skin. This gift set would make a perfect gift for anyone who likes rose scents, or a wonderful stocking filler if you're looking to spoil someone you care about.

Ruby Red Soothe and Nourish Bath and Body Set - RRP £28*
(available from Fortnum and Mason, Harvey Nichols, Planet Organic and John & Bell Croydon)
Ruby Red is an award winning natural body care range rich in plant nutrients and vitamins, combined with aromatic blends that are designed to revitalise your skin. Their products are great for sensitive and dry skin as they're free from skin irritants such as SLS, parabens, synthetic aromas and dyes - and none of the products are tested on animals. The Soothe and Nourish bath set is packaged really wonderfully and the products have a gorgeous, natural scent. The Body Cleanser reminds me of warming ginger beer, whilst the moisturiser has a lighter and slightly more refreshing scent. If you know someone who's a sucker for great packaging, wonderful fragrances and loves to pamper themselves with luxurious and natural body care then this would make a perfect gift set.

Lola's Apothecary Rose and Geranium Body Oil - RRP £32*
(available online from Beauty Crowd)
Made in Devon, Lola's Apothecary make delightful British body care products full of nourishing, natural ingredients. The brand set out to marry effective natural ingredients with what they call "the perfumed glamour" of conventional, chemical ridden body care. Their Rose and Geranium Body Oil would make a a wonderful gift for anyone who likes luxurious body care products - not only is this oil incredibly beautiful (hosted in a heavy glass bottle filled with flower petals) but it also has the most wonderful, natural scent. It's certainly an indulgent choice but it will leave a lasting impression!
