The Gift List III – Something Special for her

Be it your mum, sister, best friend or girlfriend, today’s gift list is for that special lady in your life.

Think, something to be treasured.

This is obviously not an exhaustive list, just a few ideas that you can, hopefully, draw inspiration from.

Gifts III


A sleek iPad cover. This one is from Mango but most brands that have handbags are now carrying gadget covers. In alternative, if she doesn’t have an iPad or already has something she treasures, I would suggest a nice diary or personal organiser, like the ones from Filofax.


Watches…Don’t you have the feeling that this is the most common gift for special people in your life? Maybe it’s just advertising that makes me think so! Either way, I had to include it on this list. Watches are possibly one of the most durable technologies ever invented. Unlike other electronic devices, a well built watch can last for many generations. It is that kind of present that has the potential to become a family heirloom, something to be truly treasured. I find the leather range from Fossil particularly beautiful. I am not a fan of chunky metal watches and tend to prefer something simple, yet elegant.


A Rouge Coco. And no, I don’t mean “high end make-up”. This isn’t a category. This suggestion is for nothing else besides this one Chanel lipstick. Ok, maybe I can include here both Rouge Coco and Rouge Coco Shine. If you have to choose only one item from this list, make it this one. This is simply the lipstick. And Chanel? Borders on cliché but can’t get more special than that! If I could only use one make-up product from one brand my entire life, it would be this lipstick. My personal favourites are Rouge Coco “Muse” (#14), Rouge Coco Shine Biarritz (#42) and Liberté (#46). As I have mentioned before, I think this is a perfect gift for mum.


My last suggestion would be perfect to put that perfect lipstick in: a clutch. But not just any clutch. A structured or box clutch. For some reason, I find these a lot more elegant than the envelope clutches or other less structured ones. Go figure! This one is also from Mango (you already know I love this shop so let’s move along).

And that’s it for today ladies! Let me know what you think!
Tomorrow, we’ll be checking out some suggestions for the men in our lives, so stay tuned!
