Christmas Present Ideas for Her – perfect for all student budgets #Blogmas

Christmas Gift Ideas for Her

I know how hard Christmas shopping can be, especially when you have absolutely no idea what to get someone. Here is a list, that I put together, containing several gift ideas from beauty to stationery, from perfume to homeware.

I hope you find some inspiration in time for the big day!


Perfume is always a great present for Her. It is a luxury present for all ages and it is able to fulfil all budget ranges. For younger girls or teenagers I recommend the Zoella Body Mist’s or for a sweet floral scent then Rihanna’s Nude is just perfect! But, for the ultimate gift the Jo Malone Fragrances are incredible, especially Pomegranate Noir and Lime Basil & Mandarin.

I started collecting Pandora Charms after my 18th birthday, and I am obsessed. I have many charms now and all of them have a sentimental value to me. Although, it is an expensive gift, it is an ongoing gift that you can add to on Birthday’s or Anniversary’s year upon year as well as being something to treasure forever. Alternatively, personalised jewellery from is a thoughtful present.

Make-Up and Beauty

Make-up is another, pretty easy, present to give someone and in particular, palettes allow variety at a fair price. I would recommend all of the Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palettes, as they feel like high end shadows at a fraction of the price. Make-up bags are a good purchase if you are uncertain, as they are multifunctional. Also, make-up selection boxes allow for a good range of products.

Pamper, Skin and Spa

Now, we all love a long bath and nice smelling pampering products to go alongside. Lush is quickly becoming one of my favourite shops because it offers environmentally friendly, animal testing free products. And, I just love the wide range it has from bath, to shower, to skin, to hair, to feet, to face, to just everything. For a more budget friendly, but still incredible quality, Zoe’s entire beauty range at Superdrug is fantastic.

Candles are the best present to give someone and they can be bought for £2 right up to £60+. Primark has incredibly cheap candles that have a relatively long burning time and most of them in the range smell so so so nice. I am also a lover of the Yankee Candle sample sets!

Primark – I recommend the Pineapple and Ginger scented one!

Bags and Purses

Someone can never have enough bags and purses!

Gifts for the home are ideal for those who are not particularly interested in make-up, perfumes or jewellery. They are also good for family and friends in general. From ornaments, to cushions, to artwork. There is so much to choose from! Personally, I like a cute (or funny) cushion.

Ohh Deer Illustrated Unique Cushions


Novelty presents can be super fun as well as incredibly thoughtful. I like mugs, a lot so therefore I have a couple listed below. However, under novelty, this can include books, games, artwork, homemade scrapbooks (sigh, I love) – anything really.

I am a big-time hoarder of stationery, in fact, my need to buy cute stationery is vastly becoming out of control. Who would want washi tape with dancing pugs on? Or a nice set of Stabilo pens? Paperchase and Ohh Deer is always a good place to start looking.
