Christmas gift ideas for her

in a festively decorated room, a man hands a present with a bow on it to a woman.

Christmas is the time of year to show your loved ones you care with thoughtful, heartfelt gifts to celebrate the festive season. But deciding what to buy can be tricky, particularly if you don’t have lots of time to browse what’s available. If you’re looking to streamline your Christmas shopping experience with a clear plan of what gifts to buy for the ladies in your life, keep reading for our ideas and suggestions.

Stocking fillers for her

Stockings are one of the staples of Christmas tradition across the country, with small gifts being bought in droves every year. As well as being ideal for stocking fillers, these small presents can be good for those outside of your immediate circle – for example, colleagues or neighbours. While you wouldn’t necessarily go all out on buying for them, you could get a small gift to show your appreciation for them.


Candles are a versatile present choice that can work for anyone, whether you’re buying for your wife, your granddaughter, or a friend from work. As well as giving the gift of a lovely scent, many candles are decorative on their own. You can even get them in different colours, shapes and sizes to suit whoever you’re buying for.

Different candles can be appropriate for different people. If you’re buying for a colleague or someone you’re not close with, stick to something from the range of standard scents, such as vanilla, lavender or fresh linen. This way, it’s less likely that they’ll dislike the smell. For a special someone in your life, picking their favourite scent could make that gift even more meaningful.

And if you’re thinking of buying candles for more than one woman, you could choose a multipack of different scented candles so you can mix and match according to your needs.

Winter accessories

Another great choice for a stocking filler could be some winter woollens, like a hat, scarf or gloves. If you’re looking for a larger present, warmers like microwave heated plushies, slippers or cushions could be just what your loved ones need to stay cosy this Christmas. Don’t forget the old faithfuls like hot water bottles, fluffy socks and throw blankets, either. As practical ideas, these thoughtful gifts could be really useful and greatly appreciated.

Games or puzzles

Entertainment that can be used over and over again is another excellent stocking filler idea. While you might struggle to fit a board game into a stocking, something small and simple like a deck of cards, a trivia quiz or a game of charades can brighten up a rainy afternoon. Plus, Christmas themed games can be a lovely way to spend time with your family over the festive period.

Hand cream or lip balm

Winter can be harsh on those areas of our body exposed to the cold, which can often result in chapped lips and hands. A small tube of hand cream or a lip balm can make for a small yet thoughtful gift that allows your loved ones to indulge in a little bit of everyday pampering. And with a range of scented lotions and lip balms available, why not try one that smells or tastes delicious?

What to get women for Christmas

For those women you’re closer to, larger presents can be a wonderful way to show how much they mean to you. The key factor in your buying decisions should be personalisation – buy something that she’ll actually use and enjoy, not just the first thing you find. Pay attention to any hints dropped in the months leading up to Christmas and you just might land on the perfect festive gift.


Many women see perfume as an extension of their personal style, and buying a bottle of your loved one’s signature scent could be a kind way to show you care. Alternatively, if she doesn’t have a favourite go-to perfume, you could try to find a new one she might like. If you’re feeling fancy, you could even make your own – some perfumeries allow you to mix and match your own blend of scents to create a perfume perfectly matched to your special someone.


The right jewellery can make or break an outfit, and choosing a tasteful statement piece or accentuating set can show your loved ones you’re paying attention to the little things. Whether it’s a set of fancy earrings, a necklace and bracelet pair or perhaps a ring, jewellery is a popular gifting option at Christmastime.

Winter Knitwear

In the middle of a cold and crisp winter, what could be better than a warm, cosy cardigan or shawl? Give your loved ones the gift of a knitted hug to keep them snug over the festive season, and your thoughtful present is sure to get plenty of use. Buy her some knitwear she’ll really love, or if you’re the hands-on sort, you could even try making her something yourself!
