Christmas Gift Ideas for Women


Around this time of year - every year - Jack always asks me the same question: "what do you want for Christmas?". And every year I really struggle to think up something new or exciting to actually ask for. So I thought this year I would put together a post with some of my ideal gifts, in the hope that this will help either other women think up some Christmas gift ideas, or other struggling men too.

An Experience Day

I always ask for this type of gift usually, as although a physical present brings enjoyment, an experience day usually brings lasting memories too. This could be tickets to see a West End Show, or a day out at a theme park (Jack actually took me to Thorpe Park for my birthday this year). But other ideas I have looked into include a hot air balloon flight, Go Ape or Zip-lining at Zip World, or even a cookery class. These kind of gifts also mean getting to spend a day with either your husband or a close friend too which is a bonus!

A Spa Break

I have been lucky enough to enjoy a few spa days in the past, but I say regularly to Jack that I would love to enjoy one together. Who doesn't love to be pampered huh? Not only would it be enjoyable to enjoy the time together without the children for a few hours, but I think any parent deserves to be pampered and relax. If you are looking for spa breaks in Yorkshire then you definitely need to check out the Titanic Spa. Based in the heart of Yorkshire, the Titanic Spa has been designed to appeal to both men and women, so would be perfect for a couples break or even just a date day. 


As a mum there are a number of things I want to buy, but like I'm sure many other mums, I always prioritise spending my money on them or bits for the house instead. But if money was no object, there are a few bits of new tech I would love around the house. We've had a Dyson V8 handheld vacuum for a few years now, and although it still does the job I can tell it's not working as well anymore. I've been looking at upgrading it to the newest Dyson model, or even switching to a Shark vacuum as I've heard such good things about them. A few years ago Jack bought me this gorgeous Emma Bridgewater radio that we use daily, but I would love to add an Amazon Dot or Google Home so we could play music all around the house. And finally, a bit of a splurge purchase but I would really love some Apple AirPods too. Not really for a particular reason, but if you can't think of any other gift why not?

Novelty Gifts

Novelty gifts are perfect for stocking fillers or smaller gifts, and I'm not just talking about the obvious socks and chocolates either. Marks and Spencer are selling a set of baubles this year that are actually mini gin bottles. Perfect for the colder months, I always admire the fun animal microwaveable wheat bags available in many shops - cute and practical too. You could also consider a handmade key ring or item of jewellery like these I found on Etsy. These gifts don't have to be expensive, but I always find with smaller gifts it's always the thought that counts.

This is a collaborative post.
