I always think I am really easy to buy for but my friends and family would say otherwise! Struggling to think of suggestions for myself I am sure other women do too. Here are some ideas of things I love that would be a great gift for a woman in your life or perhaps for you to ask for.
I absolutely love these perfumes and always get complimented when I wear them. They are £35 a bottle from Beauty Base and I would definitely recommend them. My favourite is Embrace.
The Rocketbook really is the next step in technology. If you write notes for work, shopping lists or just to do lists on a frequent basis then you will love this. The notebook has wipe clean pages which you write on, then using an app you can easily upload them to Google Docs, Dropbox, iCloud etc then wipe it off and write more notes! A revoloutionary idea that saves paper and is so handy to carry around! The A4 size version is £34.99 and there is also a smaller one available. Check them out on Amazon here.
Do you need to buy a gift for a lady who loves reading? The Rare Birds Book Club is a book subscription service where for £10 a month the recipient is sent a book a month. All the books are contemporary women’s fiction and as part of the club you can chat to other members online about each book too. If this is the gift for you pop over and take a look at the Rare Birds Book Club.
Would an aromatherapy candle be the perfect gift? These are amazing quality with a wonderful scent. At £29.90 each they aren’t cheap but they are great and have a 37 hour burn time. This is just one of the lovely scents they do so pop over and take a look on the Parks Candles website.
Some people are really hard to buy for aren’t they? If you know their date of birth or a special date to them then this could be the perfect gift. For £29.95 from Papers Past you get all the above and can wrap it up as a wonderful gift. Take a look on their website here and see what you think. Could this be the gift you are looking for?
Are you buying a gift for someone who loves to take photos? This wide angle lens can be attached easily to a smartphone, laptop or tablet to take photos with more people in them or even to use with videocalls or recording videos for YouTube. Whatever they would use it for this is likely to be a gift of something they don’t have already but would use. It has a great battery life and as you can see comes presented in a nice box with a storage case too. Read more about it here.
If you are buying a gift for someone who loves journaling or writing lists then this is a perfect little book. It is just £14.99 on Amazon and lasts for 3 years.
If you are buying for a lady who drives a lot, or perhaps one like me who parks in a lot of car parks and wants to ensure the car is safe then a dashcam might be a great gift. This Nextbase Dashcam is great and so easy to set up. If I can do it anyone can! Currently on Amazon for £66.95 it is a great gift for a car lover or someone who has everything!

If you are buying for someone who loves make up you are unlikely to feel confident enough to buy them a shade they will love so why not buy a nice mirror? This lovely one from JML is £19.99 so if you have a £20 budget it fits perfectly in there. Available in many stores and also online on the JML website.
This lovely gin gift set from The English Drinks Company is £18 and includes three mini bottles, cucumber, orangery and pink gin. If you are buying for someone who loves gin they will I am sure appreciate this gift set. Tasty and quality, who would want more!
If you want to buy a fragrance but fancy something a bit different this Aquamanda one is lovely and available here. Or this Black Rose Fragrance is £19.99 and available from Goya Black Rose. Both are beautiful scents and something a bit different to those you would buy on the high street.
